This week the Sugar Bowl Challenge is sketch 24 by Marlene. You also have to have some sort of zigzag on the card. I thought that would be a problem but it turns out that I had some SU rick rack ribbon. It was light green so I pulled out my Copics and colored it red and to brighten it up put red Stickles on it. I made something that reminded me of the corsages you see around the holidays in mini form. I tried to color the hat and scarf to match the plaid paper back round. Just a little glitter to add a little sparkle without him having bling.

Paper: SU Real Red. Night of Navy, Papertrey White, CTMH Textured White, and DP Bo Bunny and Basic Grey

The second challenge that I decided to use this card for was the Copic Colour Challenge #39 to use the colors G05 emerald Green, R29 Lipstick Red, and Y08 Acid Yellow. Luckily I had all 3 of these colors and decided to go playful with them. This is definitely not my typical type of card though I do like the way it came out. I didn't put a saying to it yet though because I am not sure what it will used for maybe a birthday card.
The third challenge that this card was made for was Allsorts Challenge Week 27, a card or something for a child. I think this image is perfect for any little girl who has a favorite doll that goes everywhere. My own daughter when she was young had one just like these and loved it to the point of ruin.
The fourth challenge is for Paperplay Challenges 09 Week 41 a recipe. The recipe is to use 2 designer papers, 3 buttons and 1 ribbon. I love all three items in the recipe so it was a great challenge for me. This is the first time I have tried one of their challenges.
Stamps: Kraftin Kimmie's Stamps
Paper: SU YoYo Yellow, Garden Green, Papertrey White, and DP Basic Grey
Accessories: Nesties, MS Punch, SU Photo Corner Punch, Cuttlebug Embossing Folders, CTMH Spiral Clip, Michaels Ribbon, and Walmart Craft Buttons
I hope you have liked this card I created. It was lots of fun to try something totally different than what I normally do. I would really appreciate knowing what you think.

This stamp is one of Crissy Armstrong's on Squigglefly. Isn't this one of the cutest turkeys you've ever seen and I love that it's a digi. This card was made for a sketch this week from Stamp Something Challenge Blog. It is a really fun sketch that worked perfectly with this image I think. I also made it for Kerry's fun Thursday challenge, 3CTC39, use a bird or bug on your creation.I printed out the turkey twice and cut out the front part of the turkey and popped up the turkey from the shirt up to give him some depth. His feet and bottom I just glue dotted down so he looked like he was still attached to his feathered backside.
I am one who has a comfort zone and don't realize how much I'm in it until I get knocked out of it. I must always cover my whole card with DP. There are so many out there that are perfect that I always reach for them. Well I didn't have any that went with this plaid. It was a scrap I had that I loved. I don't even know who makes it. I decided to just stamp on the red CS with fall leaves in red. It shows up IRL but not in the pick. I am not really crazy about it since it is not the norm for me. It is times like this that I will pull the card apart many times(often ruining some part of it in the process) trying to change it. This time I finished it and am posting before I give myself the chance to go at it again. Thanks for letting me vent so I can move on!

Thanks for stopping by today. If you get a minute I would love to know what you think of my card I created. I really appreciate all the wonderful comments that I get.
Have a Great Day and Happy Creating,

Dear Friend, TSSC94, Basic Grey Challenge Week 7, Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #4 Tag Your It!,RecipeFor Love Somethings Challenge
I made this card for 4 challenges. The first was Challenge #4, Tag your it on the Kraftin' Kimmie blog. You had to make a card with a tag on it. My tag was made with the SU tag punches and then I stamped the saying and roses on it with my Rubber Stamp Tapestry peg and block stamps. I stickled the roses.
The third challenge was Basic Grey's Challenge for week 7, a photo inspiration. I used the colors brown and pink from the picture as my inspiration. I love all the Basic Grey 6x6 paper packs so it was easy to find the perfect papers for this challenge.
The fourth challenge is the Stamp Something Challenge for this week, Recipe For Love Somethings. The recipe for the challenge is 1 Ribbon 2 Papers, 3 Embellishments. I used white ribbon, 2 Basic Grey Papers, and Prima Roses, Punched Branches and White Pearls, all favorites of mine!
I colored the image with Copics and stickled the bouquet of roses in her hand. I also stickled the Prima roses that are beside the image and on the tag. It does not show up very well on the picture.
