Send a Smile 4 Kids – Anything Goes Challenge!

Happy Saturday!  Today Send a Smile 4 Kids begins a new Anything Goes Challenge!  We have some great prizes being offered by our very generous sponsors for our randomly chosen winner.  The design team will also be choosing their favorites and those cards will be featured on the Send a Smile 4 Kids blog.

Now, how about a little inspiration to get you going?

My first card uses Party Dress Pretties – Patty, which I colored in copics.  The paper pack is Basic Grey KneeHigh collection, the scallop die is My Favorite Things, and the journaling spot die is Lawn Fawn.

My next card uses a cut file from The Cuffing Cafe called “Hey Foxy”.  I don’t have an electronic die cutting machine, but was still able to print out these cut files on Neenah Solar White paper using my laser printer.  I then fussy cut the image, distressed the edges and colored the fox images with Copics to make this adorable shaped card.  This is just one of the many files  in this one download!



I sure hope you will join us at Send a Smile 4 Kids this challenge for a chance to win some great prizes in our Anything Goes Challenge!



Open-Minded Crafting Challenge #28 – Movie Inspiration

It’s a busy Saturday at The Crafty Nurses’ Blog!  Hope you will join me in some crafting fun this weekend.  Today, I’m bringing some inspiration from Open-Minded Crafting Challenges as we look for inspiration at the Movies!  Our challenge runs through Friday, January 30th and we have some great prizes for our randomly chosen winners.

Here are our sponsors:

Ike's ArtPrize: $20.00 Voucher to Ike’s Store

samistampssponsorshipbadge2_zps5b3d9351Prize: $12.00 Gift Certificate

Sassy StudioPrize: 4 Images of Winners Choice

MayzyArtPrize: $12.50 Gift Certificate

For inspiration, I chose a MayzyArt image called “Aria”.  She put me in the mind of the movie “Pitch Perfect”, staring Anna Kendrick.  Wow what a voice on that one, huh? I felt like she needed some wild purple hair so I went for it.  I had never colored hair this shade before and I have to say I Like it!  What do you think?

The ovals, circles, sentiment, and embellishment are all My Favorite Things and the paper is American Crafts, “Plus One” by Amy Tangerine.

Come on over and enter a card to tell us what movies inspire you!

Sketch Saturday Challenge #344 – Bunny Zoe Crafts

Happy Saturday friends.  It’s time for a Sketch Saturday  challenge and this week we are sponsored by Bunny Zoe Crafts who is offering a 10 pound gift certificate to their online store for our random winner!

The sketch this week is:


Now, for some inspiration.  Today I’ve used a Bunny Zoe Crafts digital image called “Wags & Whiskers Fairy Hannah”.  I colored Hannah with copic markers and used My Minds Eye “My Girl” 6 x 6 paper pad.  The oval, banner, and stitched dies are from My Favorite Things and the sentiment die is Papertrey Ink.  I finished her off with some Hero Arts gems.

I can’t wait to see what you create!
