The Hybrid Chick Card Caravan - 7 things

Hi all!  I'm trying to get back into my regular blogging schedule since all my travels.  So far, it's not going as well as I hoped.  Between Peanut's activities and work, I've been REALLY busy.  

I ran a 5 K yesterday as part of my working toward running the Disney half marathon in January.  Who would have thought exercising could take so much time?

Today, I want to share my card for The Hybrid Chick Card Caravan.  Our challenge this week is to use 7 things on your card.  I used 7 pearls.  I realized that I'm really behind on Christmas cards, so I thought this is as good a time to start as any.  I used Wish List Letter to Santa by etc. by Danyale.  I love the journaling elements in this kit.  I added a sweet Christmas Tilda to finish my card.

Here are the colors I used to color Tilda.  I'm in love with the red and brown color combo, which I learned about in my Created from Color Basic Class.  Totally worth it if you're looking to improve your coloring skills.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Simon Says - anything goes
2. ABC Christmas - S is for Santa Clause
3. The Paper Shelter #83 - anything goes

Happy Crafting!

Hi all! It's my day to post on the MIC Blog.  I have a card to share with you today, but, first, I want to wish our amazing boss-lady, Zoe, a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  We thought it would be fun to share the excitement of today and as a fun way to get everyone involved we have a surprise for you!!  Check out this image especially drawn for Zoe by Little Miss Muffet Stamps which features a Sweetheart dress for any occasion with a festive Gumnut flower sun hat.  The Zoe Hatter image will be available as a freebie for today only in celebration for Zoe's Birthday!!  How cool is that?!  If you want to play along, just email Barbara at and as long as it's September 27th anywhere in the world then the offer is still open!!  Share you're creations in the MiC FB Group too - we'd love to see what you make!

Now for my creation for today, I have a new-to-me hair color combo I want to share.  I love the warm brown tones I get with W1, E71, E74, and E77.  The bows need a little work though!

Here's my finished card:

Cupcake Inspirations 178 sponsored by

Hi all!  Sorry I haven't been around very much.  I've been traveling the last six weeks, and I'm finally home.  I'm glad to be home and I'm still really tired.  I spent the last three weeks in Germany so the jetlag is still winning.  

We're having a party at Cupcake Inspirations this week.  We're sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs.  Here's our inspiration cupcake for this week:

Here's my card featuring Cocktail Sassy.  I chose a simple design with some bling.  I colored the image with Copics on Make It Colour blending card.

Happy Crafting!
