Just a note

What started out as me printing off some Limited Runs Digis for the girls to colour red and enter their monthly challenge ended up as me entering the challenge with this card as well as the Black & White + 1 colour challenge over at 2 Sisters challenge blog and of course I followed a sketch so I will enter the challenge at Sketch Saturday #172 where Simon Says is the sponsor! My daughter Miss E was lucky enough to win a $25 gift certificate for their shop and we sure had a great time choosing her loot! At first I thought this sketch would be hard for me to work with but I just love the finished product...if I do say so myself ;)

2 cute 2 spook

My mom grabbed this freebie at Bows and Berries.  They are the sponsor over at Aly's Sunday Challenge...which we assume is a children friendly challenge blog  :) This month's challenge is to add a bow and that's what I did. I chose 4 different jewels for the four corners cause I liked them all! Thanks for looking - P.K.

Halloween Horse

My mom found a new challenge site for kids! It's at Jen's Digi Stamps. She gives you a freebie and you have to create some sort of crafty project with it. My mom thinks this is a trick or treating giraffe, but I think it is a horse.....a trick or treating horse! : ) P.K.

P.K. is on The Crafter's Cafe Kid's Design Team!

Hi everyone it's me P.K. Guess what? I am on The Crafter's Cafe Kid's Design Team! Do you know what that means? I get to pick digis from the sponsors and make cards to get other kids to join the monthly challenge. This month's theme is Party and here are the cards I made. All the images are from The Stamping Boutique. Do you know which one is my favourite? It's the one with the fairy because I used a lot of jewels. Which one do you like best?!

A paper-pieced tree

Here is my 2nd attempt at paper piecing. I rather like it! Cutting, glueing, not as much colouring! This digi is from Stretch N Bubbles and I picked it up as a Dollar Digi as advertised on the Free Digital Stamps blog. It is still available for a few more days : ) The sketch is from The Sweet Stop. I think I may have to find a sentiment that fits and add it later. I am still building my collection of stamps and don't really have anything I like for this card.  I am sure one of my crafting buddies may be able to help me out with this one ; )

Christmas Puppy

Such a sweet image from Sliekje Digi Stamps. She has lots of super cute freebies, but let's make sure to thank those artists, so that they keep making 'em! The sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday #118-49 and so I will enter their challenge. I tried to create a flower with these gems/snowflakes that I got from Dollarama...but I am not sure that I am a fan. I don't have too many embellishments to work with so I guess this will have to do. I am also entering Catch the Bug September Anything Goes (my 3rd and final entry). TFL and have a great day : )

Have yourself a Merry little Christmas!

I've been back to making Christmas cards lately. I think me and the girls have made 5 in the last few days. This image is from Bugaboo and since they are caroling I thought the perfect sentiment would be "Have yourself a Merry little Christmas"....just like the song! I really like the look of a big bow on other people's cards so I gave it a try. I definitely need to get more Christmas DSP soon as I am getting bored with what I have.  I cannot wait until my CTMH order comes in because I did order some : ) I am entering my card at:

Sister - Forever Friend

I made this card for my sista! I spent a lot of time with her earlier this summer, but haven't seen her in a few weeks. She is coming over tomorrow so I will give it to her then ; ) The image is obviously Bugaboo. The sentiment is from a set of sister sentiments I got from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Catch the Bug September Anything Goes
2 Sisters Challenge Blog - Friends
Stamp Something September Digi Day
Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes (I really wish I had had time to complete their Stamp tember Blog Hop)!

Rag Bunny

I've been really wanting to try paper piecing so when Catch the Bug listed that as their challenge I decided here's my chance. Not as hard as I thought! I followed the tutorial I found at OWH Stars and Stamps. I used the Rag Bunny freebie I got from Bugaboo. It is available  HERE until tomorrow. The sketch is courtesy of Sweet Sketch Wednesday #117.  Thanks for looking and have a great day!
