Happy World Card Making Day!

I have a bunch of cards to share this morning. Peanut and I were busy yesterday! But first, all the news that's fit to print:

One Stitch at a Time is having an amazing contest today with lots of prizes to be won! It's not too late to join the challenge. They're looking for just 32 more cards to break the 300 card barrier!

Stitchy Bear Stamps shop has new 99 cent specials. I've added my fawn in the trees as a special this month.

My card won over at Crafty Creations. I'm so excited!

I don't think I mentioned this already, but I won a prize in the Stamping Vacation blog hop! This is a great blog if you love challenges as much as I do. Thank you Denise for organizing a fun day!

So, now we get down to business - the cards. The first is Peanut's card. She won the freebie challenge at I Did It Creations forum last week. It's her first cardmaking prize. She was excited to pick this digi - Bunny Art from Stitchy. She's showed unusual restraint on this card. She colored the image with purple Crayola washables. She added some glitter chalk and a blue fabric brad.

The second card is Cuddly Anya. I've been eyeing this sweet stamp for a while now. My mom very generously bought me several stamps for my birthday, and this was one of them. I stamped the image on cream cardstock and colored her with colored pencils. The patterned and brown paper was a two sided paper from 29th Street Market. The olive green paper is from Robyn's Fetish.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Greeting Farm color challenge - chocolate, vanilla, old olive
3. Everybody Art #110 - friends

This week the freebie challenge at IDIC forum is really SWEET! This week it's sponsored by The Crafty Pad. This image really screamed to me to be a shaped card. I colored it with Copics, Promarkers and Prisma markers. I added beads for the sprinkles and LOTS of glitter.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. IDIC Forum - Freebie challenge
2. Pollycraft Monday Challenge #63 - no designer paper
3. Lollipop Crafts #9 - glitter, sparkle, and gems
4. Cupcake Craft Challenge #110 - pink and brown - I was going for strawberry ice cream with chocolate sauce - Hope it counts!

Here's Peanut's card using the same image. She colored it and I helped her cut it out. She added beads and red glitter.

Thanks for hanging in with me on this long post. I hope you spend the day in your craft room on World Cardmaking Day!

Happy Crafting!
