Creative Knockouts Challenge #17 - Anything Goes

I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays and managing the weather we are having here in the states.  We had 8" of snow on Sunday and it seems to be snowing everyday since.  I'm sad to say this will be my last card as a design team member for Creative Knockouts.  We are going to Florida to enjoy the warmer climate for the winter.  Since I won't have access to all my supplies I didn't want to commit to anything at this time.  It's been about a year and I thank Kelly and the design team members for letting me join the group.  I have really enjoyed my time there.

This week at Creative Knockouts we have an "Anything Goes Challenge" with Bugaboo as our sponsor.  As many of you know I love Stella & Gus, so for my last card on the design team I picked the Bugaboo image "Stella Birthday - One More Candle".  I colored the image with Copics and added Stickles to the candles and her hat.  The papers were from the 6x6 pack from Ki called Growing Garden.  

Here is my card...

Hope you can join us this week for the Anything Goes Challenge.
I will taking some time off till we get settled and will be posting again in the new year...

Creative Knockouts Challenge #15 - Tis The Season

This weeks challenge at Creative Knockouts is "Tis the Season".  So if you are like me and really haven't finished up all your holiday cards this is the perfect challenge to add one of your creations.  Our sponsor for today's challenge is Robyn's Fetish.  The design team has some really great ideas for some inspiration using their wonderful images.  For my card I used the cute image from Robyn's Fetish called " Paul Penguin Sleighing".  I colored the image with my Copics, added some Stickles and fussy cut it out.  The snowflake pattern paper was from my stash and the snow hills are from the DCWV Glitter Mat Stack.  I edged the hills with some blue ink, just to give them some definition.  I also die cut extra snowflakes from the same glitter paper using the Cuttlebug 2x2 Single Die - Snowflake #2 and added some gems for a little bling.  The sentiment is from Whipper Snapper Designs "Think Snow" set and was cut using the Fishtail Flags Stax from MFT.  

Here is my card for this week's challenge.

Never Underestimate the Power of this Woman Card

Just a quick post today with a card using the Art Impression stamp "Maude" and sentiment "Never Underestimate the Power of this Woman".  I just love this image, since I'm not a morning person I can relate.  The papers are from the Embellish by Dena 6x6 pack and gems from Michaels.  I colored the image with Copics, added some distressing with Antique Linen Distress Ink and cut her out using the Spellbinders Oval and Scallop Ovals dies.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
Challenges4Everybody - Anything Goes
Use It Tuesday - Anything Goes
(The blue card stock was a leftover piece in my scrap bin and the gem stones I have had for ages.  They were from the dollar bin at Michaels.
