Lockhart Cupcakes and Catch Up Posts From last Week


Good morning everyone!!! I have been MIA for a few days...Mom and Dad had appointments, we had a little get together on Saturday, had Grandkiddos stay over and went to see Harry Potter again....I think I know it word for word, now!!! Isn't summer fun!!! I just wish it wasn't sooooo hot...the temps are still above 100 and no rain in our area!!! Anyway, enough whining...on with the show!!!
I made these sweet little Lockhart cupcakes for the CAS challenge this morning. Jen had a sketch for us provided by Krystie Lee. The cupcakes were colored with copics and scraps of dp, ribbon, and a Nesties embossed frames finish them off. The sentiments are from a retired SU set called Fancy Flexible Phrases. I need to make another one with the rose cuppie...wouldn't these make a great gift set??
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Cards I made last week....
I made this Sunday for the Featured Stamper challenge.... this week the fs was Lori (Versamom). What an AWESOME gallery....I loved so many cards that I decided to make two...I cased her VMAA Holy Cow card, kept the same theme with the cow image and tree paper but changed the cow image to Rubbernecker's Animal Inchies, changed the paper, and added the pearls at the bottom (don't look too close cause I just realized they are a little crooked...yikes!!). I also cased herA Muse Love Blooms Sneak Peek, kept the same colors, theme, and basic layout but changed the image, corners, and added the pearls. The Holy Cow card qualifies for Becca's Dare to Get Dirty challenge to use punches and die cuts. The image and sentiment layers were cutout with Nestabilities and the olive layer under the cow was punched out using a 1 3/8" punch.

The Limited Supply challenge on SCS Friday was called "Get your motor running"! We were to use an image that you can rev up! car, motorcycle, truck, mopad, boat, jetski, anything with an engine!
....I'm not sure a space ship has a conventional motor but that's ok...it has something that makes it move!! I colored the Lost in Space images by Clear Dollar Stamps with Copics and used Playtime dp by 3 Bugs in a Rug for the background layers. Silver Dew Drops, polka dot ribbon, and a clip finish it off. I am going to save this card for one of my DGS's birthdays next year.


The Ways to Use It challenge on SCS Thursday was to use charms.
I just got this adorable paper called My Sweet Cherry Pie by Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker from Clear Dollar Stamps and thought it would go perfectly with the cherry image from Clear Dollar Stamps Tangy Trio set. The charm is actually a cherry brad but I took the metal thingys off the back and hung it on the ribbon with silver cording. Sewing around the edges and a little silver clip finish it off.



I made this card Tuesday for the Color Challenge on SCS and for the Muddermark's Tuesday tea party in Paris!!! I have always wanted to go to Europe and there I was on my little scooter following all the bicycles on the Tour...Whoohoo!!! I even bleached my hair and lost 20 lbs!!! If you look closely in the lower right corner you will see a little white snail...he escaped the bicycles but looks like I'm headed right for him...yikes!!! Check out Cindy's blog for all the deets on the white snail tea pot!! This is also for Taylored Expression's Cupcake Challenge sketch.


Whew...that's all folks....now I have to play catch up with all the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges that I wasn't able to do last week....have a great day!!!

Whoa! You have been very busy, my friend! Of course I love everything you make, so I think all of these cards are fantabulamajestic! Does Harry Potter use words like that in his wizardy? My DH and DS love Harry Potter; they even went to the midnight opening of this last show! You're a good grandmama to go twice!
