Give Thanks!

It looks like I'm on a roll with quick projects using pre-stamped items. I know Thanksgiving is several months away but since everything was just waiting to be assembled I just had to go with it.

Basketball Star

Here's another quick card that I made using an image that I colored a long time ago that was just sitting my desk. I'm slowly getting back into crafting so I'm easing into it with images and materials that are within arms reach.
I kept this card pretty simple using a card base and paper scraps. The image is from The Greeting Farm. The have some fun stamps and stamp sets and it looks like there are more digital images than I remembered.
I prefer digital images because of the flexibility in sizing images as well as mirror imaging. For that time when you think the image should face the other way.  
Digital image: The Greeting Farm
Cardstock: Stamping Up
This card was made for the following challenges:
 Polkadoodles Crafting Challenge. The theme is to use 2 or more different designer papers. As you can see I have used 3 (4 if you count the patterned clear overlay). One of my favorite things to do is to mix and match various patterns and textures.
Crafty Girlz Challenge: The theme is anything goes or if you prefer a theme - summer holidays.
   Digi Designs: Hand colored image

Beach Party!!

This weeks Fantabulous Cricut Challenge is to create a project that features Outdoor Summer Activities with at least one Cricut design element.
The project that I created used the Summer Celebrations Cricut Cartridge. This is an image that I had put together a long time ago but never got around to using it. For quick assembly I used old packaging material and paper scraps. Since the image was already pre-cut and assembled it was a breeze to put together.. It can easily be turned into a scrapbook page element, invitation or a fun summer time book.

Back in the day...

When I was in the 8th grade I used to go roller skating on Saturday afternoons. I'd spend hours skating along to the music with my friend Judy, eating junk food and having a good time.
Seeing this image - Roller Mae - from Some Odd Girl really brought back some fond memories. I never had stars on my skates but would have if I had the option back then. Thanks for looking and I hope you bring in the New Year with creativity and inspiration.
I'm still working on getting my Mojo back so I've been checking out some of the challenge blogs and decided to make a card that incorporated several of the monthly themes going on so here's the list of challenges that this card qualifies for:
Some Odd Girl - Tag! You're It! - must use a tag on your project 
Sweet Stamping Challenge - Sports and Fitness - must have something stamped
Simon Wednesday - Something new - like a new digi

So Berry Cute Sophie

 Today I'm sharing a card that really came together in minutes. I like when that happens. This digital image is an oldie but goodie.  This was one of my Design Team images from The Town Scrapper and is a Victoria Case Design. Isn't she adorable?

Create a Background Challenge

I know its been ages since I've posted and I'm slowly working my way back. I thought the best way to get a jump start was with a challenge.

I needed some inspiration so I decided to check out what Some Odd Girl has been up to.  It turns out that they are now selling clear stamps as well as digital stamps. I'm still a digi girl at heart but love that they have both options.
This month's challenge is called "Create a Background." I wanted my image to be the showcase so I stamped a black and white background. It felt good to get a little ink on my fingers. Here's what I came up with.


Thanks ladies for helping me get back in the groove. I plan on joining in on more challenges in the future.
