Saturday Morning Make Up!

Good morning everyone!!! I am having a real lazy day today.....still in my jammies and it's after 10:00 AM!!! I am trying to put away Christmas stuff and packing for CHA...WOOT!! I left my Christmas decorations up so we could have a Christmas celebration while my Sister and her DH were here last week but the party is over and now it's time to clean up...wish I had a good fairy who likes to clean and organize!!! Anyway.....
I have several projects that I made for SCS challenges that I didn't have time to post so here goes...
The Limited Supply Challenge yesterday was to make a small card and a treat. The polka dot paper from Three Bugs in a Rug was used to cover the tin and red polka dot ribbon was tied around the lid edge. Nesties hearts and heart brads were added to the top and the little ladybugs image from Clear Dollar Stamps Loving Ladybugs set were colored with copics and popped up on the heart. Another image from the same set was used on the 3" card...colored with copics and ribbon and a heart stick pin finish it off. BTW, the little heart stick pin was a gift from my friend, Michelle Rodgers from Stamper's Dream...thanks you sweet thang!!!
Stamps: Loving Ladybugs
Paper: White, Real Red, Three Bugs in a Rug dp called Playtime
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

The Ways to Use it challenge on Thursday, January 7, was to use something embellies, stamps, paper, etc. These adorable stamps from Clear Dollar Stamps Toybox Time were new from their January release. The images were colored with Copics and I drew the curvy line from the toy dog's nose around the sentiment. I also added some lace I got the other day at Hobby Lobby.

I made this card for the Sketch Challenge on January 6th......I used a Ridley image from the adorable Lovin' Ridley and Rosie stamp set illustrated by Wendy Hall for Clear Dollar Stamps . Ridley was colored with copics and layered on the beautiful Farm Fresh patterned paper. A button with twine and ribbon finish it off. I already added a Happy Birthday sentiment and sent it off to a friend who is having a special birthday in a week or two.

I made this card on Monday, January 4, for the CAS Challenge to make a Valentine and the Technique Challenge to do paper quilting. The adorable Ridley image from the Lovin' Ridley and Rosie set designed by Wendy Hall for Clear Dollar Stamps was colored with Copics and glitter was added to the wings. Can you believe I didn't even add ribbon, buttons, or brads...yikes!!!
