Chase's Easter Card

I really struggled with this card... and this is the end product which I'm very pleased with!  Except, when I picked it up to photograph, I discovered I put it on the card backwards and the card opens on the left instead of the right...UGGGGHHHHHHH!!!  I made it to give to my daughters boyfriend for Easter and she said "keep it that way, he will love it"!  So I am!   I got this as a freebie several years ago and wasn't sure where only to see it on Beccy's Place for her March challenge (the eggs are different, but I'm sure it is one of her designs).  I colored him with copics, silver wink of stella on his belt buckle, and clear wink of stella on all the eggs.  Layout is for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 #108 Challenge.  CS is Craft Smith blues 12x12 pad (Michael's had them on sale last week for $5!!) and DP from Doodlebug Designs Bunnyville 6x6 pad.  Ribbon from Offray colored to match, Stampin' Up! dot candy, and computer generated sentiment.

Can you believe it's the 1st Friday in March already?!?!  It's also time for a new challenge at QKR Stampede and this week is "Anything Goes" (no twist).  I chose Peace Cat, colored her with copics, cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched rectangle die, glossy accents on her sun glasses, clear wink of stella on her flip flops, and silver heat embossed her necklace.  The layout is for Mojo Monday #486.  DP is from Kelly Medina Studios on Etsy, Neon blue cs from The Paper Studio, and Green cs from Craft Smith green 12x12 pad.  Sentiment is computer generated, free clip art peace sign, cut out with SB large circle die, matted with SB large scalloped die, and blueberry bakers twine.

Stop by QKR Stampede's challenge blog to see what my DT sisters have made for your inspiration and join our fabulous challenge!  The prize for winning is 2 digital images of your choice, but if you use a QKR image you will win 3 digital images of your choice!  Hope to see you there!

QKR Stampede Challenge #232 - ATG w/Twist Birthday Cards

Here we are the last Friday in February! Doesn't it seem like the month just started?  Our challenge twist this week at QKR Stampede is Birthday Cards.  Our nephew was 25 on the 9th, so I sent this card to him.  The inside says "Congratulations! From now on you are officially OLD"!   I colored image #15106 Hug Me with copics and cut out with SB large circle die.  The layout is for Sugar Pea Designs Mix it up Challenge #28.   Rust cs from my stash and DP from The Paper Studio Glasses, Staches, & Ties pad.  Rusty hinge distress ink, computer generation sentiment and button brad from my stash.

Stop by QKR Stampede's challenge blog to see what my DT sisters have made for your inspiration and join our fabulous challenge!  The prize for winning is 2 digital images of your choice, but if you use a QKR image you will win 3 digital images of your choice!  Hope to see you there!
