Flight of Challenge (365 cards- Day 161)

WooHoo! I got my "giddy-up" going and finished an entire week at 365 Cards. Today, Day 161, the challenge is called Cool Collage. The goal is to cover every part of your card with something, no blank spaces allowed.
My image is from a page of part of an old children's book. I only have a few pages, so I don't know the name of the book. The polka dot paper is from Doodlebug Designs and the plaid red paper is from a tablet I've had for years, which may have come from Current, but I don't really remember. The puffy alphabet stickers are from Making Memories. I have no idea what the funky spot is on the letter p, as you can't see anything like that in person. It must have something to do with the dimension giving the scanner a hard time. I'd take a picture, but I'm in a hurry and I don't have time. Hope the rest of our week-end goes well!

Flight of Challenge (365 cards- Day 160)

365 Cards Day 160 challenge was Lovely Lace. You could use any amount of lace on your card, as long as you used some lace. I once again pulled a page from by Monet Year In A Box Calendar. Today we are in the poppy fields. The little girl with her lace apron is from Delafield Rubber stamps. The poppies are from a stamp I carved from Nasco Safety Cut. Coloring was done with Prismacolor Pencils.

Flight of Challenge (365 cards- Day 159)

I'm on a roll. It is Thursday and I'm doing Thursday's challenge on 365 Cards, Day 159 Setting The Scene- Indoors. I think the kitchen definitely qualifies as indoors. It took no time at all to create the card. First I stamped the stove (Stampa Barbara) on the white card stock using black Memories ink. Then I masked the stove and stamped the wallpaper border (origin???) over and over across the top of the card using Coral Red Ancient Page Ink. Next I cut and glued on the red and white checked paper which was once the liner of a box lunch to serve as the floor. I then drew in the chair rail and boards using a black Micron Pigma Pen by Sakura. I stamped the Pillsbury Dough Boy (Stamp Camp) on white card stock, colored in his eyes and hat symbol with a light blue gel pen, and cut him out. I attached him with foam tape so he is popped out. I printed the sentiment on the computer and cut it out using a McGill label punch, layering it onto a scrap of red paper before taping to the card. Quick as that I was done!

Flight of Challenge (365 cards- Day 158)

365 Cards Day 158 is today so I'm finally caught up! The challenge: What's your Sign?, make sure there is a sign on your card. Obviously I thought of my Ziggy looking at a billboard stamp(Stampendous). The message is from Viva Las Vegastamps! The grass came from ??? and with a little masking I added the tree in the background (Stamp Francisco(Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers). A little coloring with Prismacolor Pencils and stenciling with Colorbox ink and I was done!

Flight of Challenge (365 cards- Day 157)

365 Cards challenge for Day 157 was Imagine This: Sunflowers. All cards needed to be inspired by sunflowers. This was an easy challenge. I love sunflowers. I love being in France and seeing the fields of sunflowers. I love watching the Tour de France and watching the bicyclists fly by the fields of sunflowers.
