Anything Goes!

While I love the freedom of Anything Goes, it's also somewhat stressful!  I know, that sounds silly, but matching a sentiment with an image is sometimes difficult!

This week at Clear It Out Challenge, it's ATG (Anything Goes)!  Our sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear Stamps .

I colored two versions of this, then couldn't decide which I liked better!  So I used them both! :)  The image is called Alice Cat and with a name like that, my first thought was Cheshire Cat (hence the pink and purple)!  When I started to search for a quote, the other blue and purple image popped up, so I thought what the heck!  As with both cards, the papers are scraps, the image was colored with Tombow Art Markers and the acrylic dots are homemade (melted perler beads).  I am also entering both of these lovelies into the Stitchy Bear Monthly Challenge which is located on their Facebook page!  Best of luck to everyone and remember ANYTHING GOES!!

Good Tuesday to everyone!  This week at Clear It Out Challenge Blogspot, it's all about the number three!  I feel like I should be on Sesame Street! :)  The challenge is anything goes, but the stash item is to use whatever, but make it in multiples of three!

Our sponsor this week is Stamp Art by Kathryne.  The image I chose was of two gingerbread "persons."  One of I printed it twice and fussy cut them out.  Embellished them with some liquid pearls and candy cane red stickles.  The paper I've used is from DCWV, Sugar Plum.  The three red dots at the bottom right are homemade acrylic dots (melted in the oven perler beads)!  My kids don't seem to miss a few here and there!

Holy Cow It's November!!!

Well here it is the first week of November!  Whew, that year went by fast!!!  In Florida it's a little different in fall that everywhere's cooler and less humid, and my absolute favorite time of year!!  Temps in the 70s and 80s during the day but cooling off at night into the 40s and 50s leads to fire pits and warm snuggly clothes!!

This week's challenge at Clear it Out Challenge is all about Gearing up for winter!  Also the stash item is to add something metal to your creation!  Our sponsor this week is one of my favorites, Bugaboo Stamps!

This image just makes me happy!!  They are simply called "winter trio."  I colored them in with my Tombow Art Markers.  The sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co., the paper is from a kitchen stack, of all things, that I won sometime ago!  The twine is from the dollar spot at Target and the charm is from my stash.  

I'm going to enter this into the Bugaboo Stamps Challenge for November - ATG.

Don't forget to check out Bugaboo Stamps, their images are super sweet!

Let's hear it for the boys!

Hey there crafty friends!  The Challenge at Southern Girl Challenge this round is boy themed!

My image comes from Emerald Faeries.

The name of the image is Larakins!  I used my Tombow art markers to color them in.  Paper is all from scraps and the white dots are homemade melted perler beads!  The flower flourish is from Fancy Pants Burlap & Bouquets.

I am going to enter this card in the MFT Sketch Challenge as well.  Here is the sketch!
