Challenge 42 I it Black or white? (with a twist!)



This week's challenge at Fab N Funky is Black and White (with a twist!), the twist being one extra colour. Easy huh? Well, I thought so too, and got right to work on a simple card featuring an image from this week's sponsor, Doodle Dragon. I do like the final result, although I'm a little worried it's a bit too "Shrek-ish". If you look really closely, you can also see where DH stuck his finger in the wet Stickles and smeared it!
So get to work, let's see your twisted creations!

Challenges:
sketch - CPS, Cute Card Thursday
Colours - Color Chef, Stamping with the Dragon (appropos, no?)
glitter or bling - Crazy 4 Challenges, Lollipop Crafts
Cute and charming - Pile It On
NO ribbon or buttons - The Crazy Challenge
Plain and simple - Allsorts

Crooked bows and all



This card is a little late - I should have posted it on Thursday, but life got in the way. We had a hoot last night at the local fair, and Thursday? Well, let's just say the couch was calling!
This is actually the second card of a pair for a friend with twins, one boy, one girl. Since I did a quote for the boy card, I scrounged around and found this cute quote from Stampin Up that I hadn't even inked up yet, shame on me!
The cute little girl is a freebie from Michell Perkett, isn't she sweet?
Sketch - Everything but the Kitchen Sink
Colours - Color Q
glitter - Little Red Wagon (look close, it's there!)

Quote me Happy!



It's that time again, time for a new challenge at Fab N Funky, and this week's is "Quote me Happy". So pull out your underused sentiment stamps or dust off a digi and let's see what you've got! I found this sticker at the bottom of my stash, and it fit perfectly with my card for a little boy. Don't forget, all the new DT are playing along this week so there's lots of inspiration for you.
And for even more inspiration, there's a gift certificate for Fred She Said for one lucky player.

Lots of challenges today:
Sketch - CPS and Stampin 411 (very similar)
colours - SPCC
use punches - Just Cute Bears
Transport - Cards 4 men, Cupcake Craft (do balloons count as transport, I hope so!)

In the Air - Daring Cardmakers (balloons again!)
boys - Lollipop Crafts

Challenge #40 - Get the photo Vibe

Well, I don't know what pops into your head when you see this picture, but the first thing in mine was "confection". I can't believe this is actually a cake, it's so incredible! I decided to stay with the cake theme, and made a confection of my own for the challenge this week at Fab N Funky.

I stuck with a simple card, just the one layer, but I piled on the gold embossing, pearls and Smooch spritz to give it lots of glamour. (I took the 2nd photo so you could see how sparkly it is!




Hope my Mum and Dad like it, their anniversary is coming up soon. So let's get creative and see what you come up with this week!
PS - A big hello and welcome to the new DT members, don't forget to drop by and say hello!

Also entered this at Oh Alice - Trees and flowers

Sorry for the mess!

Sorry about the mess guys, my template crashed last night. Hopefully I will get this fixed up soon!

Update: After an hour of cursing and swearing, I think I have things straightened out. Blogger has made quite a few changes since last time I did this, and I'm incredibly frustrated right now, but it's done. Hope you like!

There she goes!



Boy, it's late, and I'm tired. Meant to post this last night, except hubby planned a meeting with the financial advisor and didn't tell me. Found out at 8:00pm when she showed up! Good thing I had the pure dumb luck to tidy up a bit, yikes!
So, short and sweet! New stamps from There She Goes, love em! Sketch from CPS and colours from There She Goes. I'm sure I could find a few more challenges, but I need to go to bed!

Fab N Funky #39 "What'eva"



This is an easy one this week at Fab N Funky - "What ever goes!". I went with a baby theme, albeit a slightly unconventional one. Who says baby cards have to be pastel? I have a shower for a good friend coming up, but I wanted something fun and cheerful - hence the pink and orange!

As an added bonus, one lucky player this week will get a prize from the wonderful Meljen's Designs! So let's see what you can come up with!

Challenges entered:
Sketch: 4 Crafty Chicks (new challenge blog, check it out!)
Colours: SPCC
Baby, New Beginnings: The Crazy Challenge, Allsorts
Pearls: Pals Paper Arts
Cute: Stamp Something
Sparkle: Oh Alice
Lots of Colour: Frosted Designs

These other 2 cards are a complete and utter scraplift from Papercrafts Magazine. I wanted to showcase the new CTMH colours and this card was perfect for the task. Just thought I'd show off a simple and graphic card, something I rarely do!
