Hi all! It's my day to post on the Make It Crafty Blog. I have been eyeing Fairy Tinsel for a while now, I love a fairy with glasses! But I wasn't sure what to do about that tinsel. It looked really hard to color. Then, I had a thought - glitter. I sometimes feel like I'm cheating on the MIC team when I resort to glitter. I think if tinsel doesn't call for glitter, nothing does.
Here's a close-up of my colored image.
And, here's my finished card. I added the glitter to her tinsel and the fur trim on her coat.

We're dreaming of snow at The Hybrid Chick Card Caravan. Our challenge this fortnight is to make a card with this photo inspiration.
Here's my card. You can see my supplies used below. I printed a single layer card using digital papers and a digital stamp. I added some embellies when I was done coloring.
Here's my color chart:

Now for our Inspiration Cupcake (the image is linked to the original source):
Here's my card featuring Give Thanks Pumpkin from Fresh Brewed Designs. I dug out some Thanksgiving papers from last year and cut little banner strips. I'm loving this popular look for my scrapbook pages and this is the first time I've used it for a card.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Card Makin' Mamas - Thanksgiving/Thank you
2. Wags 'n Whiskers #92 - Be Thankful
It has been a crazy, busy weekend for me. We decided to have a yard sale yesterday, which went well but required a lot of preparation. On Friday, I also went to Peanut's preschool to do some chemistry experiments. So, I'm a little late getting my weekend posting done. This is the first post of two for today.

Before I share my cards, I have sad personal news. Today, I took my cat Misty to the vet to be put to sleep. He was 16 and had stage four kidney disease. He's been with me since he was two months old. May he rest in peace.
We're thankful this fortnight at The Hybrid Chick Card Caravan. I wasn't feeling very crafty this weekend, but the November Digichick Designer Collab made these cards really easy. I love the colors. I made two clean and simple cards. The first uses papers and elements from the kit.
The second uses a printable card that's included with the kit. I added papers banners and a "button."
I'd like to enter these cards in the following challenges:
1. Paper Playtime #88 - autumn colors
2. Dream Valley #45 - anything goes
3. Sentimental Sundays #128 - thanks/thanksgiving

Next, I took colorless blender and put it on a small piece of terry cloth cut from an old towel. I dabbed the towel all over the background to create even more light and dark areas. This way, I think the background doesn't have to be colored evenly and still gives a great effect. I think it looks like the night sky with snow falling in the background.
Here's my finished card. I used Y28 to color most of the sleigh. I really like this marker as it gives a really gold color. I added a flower with a gear center for my slightly Steampunk Christmas card.

Hi all! Do you know what this weekend is - Digital Scrapbooking Day! I'm trying to figure out how I can cram as much scrapping as possible into the family commitments I already have.
It's the first of the month and new release day at Scrap Matters. geniaBeana has a great set of minis for the November Make-a-Kit. I love them all! I paired them with Gimme Layers vol. 36 by Cluster Queen Creations, which is released in a bundle this week so you can get it at a great deal.
