Challenge time!

Happy Friday and Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a super holiday season!  Back to work with all of the challenges now :)  Hopefully, I will have more time to participate in all of these challenges.  So today is a new challenge at Stamp Something!  The challenge is "New Somethings."  Use something new in your stash to create your project!  Our sponsor this week is KLM Designs

"KLM Digi Stamps (KLM Designs) was started by a Mother & Daughter team. Kathryn
(owner of KLM Digi Stamps) and Sue (Company's artist) started designing digi
stamps for their own creations. After much response & excitement to their
designs they formed KLM Digi Stamps.

KLM carry's a large selection of designs from clowns, which are the company's
signature design to digi sentiments. All images are delivered ZIP format. Each
image file contains JPEG and PNG format files. Images can be resized, reversed
and altered to your likings."

Winner will receive 3 images of her choice.

I went with the Young Cowboy image which I think is too cute!  I colored him with watercolor pencils and a white gel pen.  The "badge" is a gold star button I found in my stash.  I used new papers to set up the layout.  I went with a new job theme...wish you luck!  Please check out the rest of the DT...we have a new team and they are AMAZING!!! 

These are the challenges I touched on:

Crazy 4 Challenges!

Hi again!  I have another card to post!  I've been wanting to get some stamping done but time has not been on my side until now!  So here's another...I want in on the prize for Crazy 4 Challenges this week...because as you know, I LOVE GF stamps!!!  Here's Edward.  I colored him with watercolor pencils and a white gel pen.  The paper is BG.  The sentiment is from SU.  The sketch is from Crazy 4 Challenges and the other part of the challenge is "non holiday."  This card also fits CRAFT's thank you challenge,  and Crafty Cardmaker's "favorites" challenge.  Greeting Farm are my favorite stamps and distressing is one of my favorite techniques!  So that's all!  Thanks for coming by again :)   Hope to see you again real soon!

Babysitting project

Hi there again!  I just wanted to post a little project I did with the kids I babysit for.  We made snowglobes out of Polar fruit jars.  I stamped the images the kids chose with Stazon on acetate.  They colored them with Sharpie markers and cut out the images.  We filled the jars with baby oil and each child chose the glitter colors they wanted.  We glued the images in two of them and let them free float in the other two.  Then the kids chose the ribbons they wanted to decorate the outsides of the jars.  I hot glued and superglued the lids shut and then hotglued the ribbon around the lids and the tops of the jars.  The kids are ages 1, 2, 6 and 8. I can honestly say, I have NEVER seen kids so excited about a project before!  They had a blast and were so proud :)  It's times like this I miss being a toddler teacher!  Thanks for looking! 

Anyone for Anya?

Hello and Welcome!  Today I have a card I made for the Anyone for Anya challenge.  It was a sketch challenge.  I used my new Dress Me Anya stamp.  The papers are DCWV.  The sentiment is from SU's "Noteworthy" set.  I love the colors of this!  I colored Anya with watercolor pencils.  This card also fits challenges at:

Anyone for Anya: Sketch
Charisma Cardz:  Anything but Christmas
Creative Card Crew:  Anything goes
Crafty Creations:  No rules
Inky Impressions:  Embossing, glitter

That's it for now :)  Thanks for stopping by!
