Challenge Card

Hello and good day!
Im working on a few different things, first of all I want to make bigger cards. When I first started trying to make cards I learned from MPS to take 8.5 x 11 inch card stock and cut in half and thats the size of the card.
As I learn more and more about card making, I realize that is not big enough to add details and back ground so I am working on different sized cards now.
This card is 4 x 6 completely by but I liked having a bigger base to work with.
The Theme of this card is GONE WITH THE WIND
I am entering this card in the following challenges.

Fun in the Sun

Hello again....I had to do one more post today....I was so excited about this card I made....
I got the Idea to make my own card stock from a wonderful website called....
I found Melissa's blog during the stamp release for Tiddly Inks and Make it Crafty....and I have been stocking her blog every since....she has beautiful cards and she makes her own cardstock I decided to try my hand at this.....I love how this turned out!
I started with white cardstock and stamped it all over with a 1.00 stamp I purchased from Joann Fabrics...I used Memento ink....Then I just started coloing in the images with my copics....then I topped it off with some Martha Stewart  fine glitter.....not bad for my first try...
The main image is Moes Digital Pencil called Umbrella....I love her....she is chilling enjoying her cocktail....Im sure I will use this image
Oh yeah and I found this website that gives free sentiments HERE and another one HERE...pretty cool.

I entered this card in the Stampinsanity summer challenge.

Happy Sunday

Hello and good day...
I am playing in my craft room today and I have a couple of things to show you.... I purchased  a Clip it up organizer from Walmart...I think it was 55.00 and only available online in my area....I am using it for my stamp actually bigger that I thought but I think I'm going to get alot of use out of it.....also there is another piece you can buy an add to the top so you get two racks.
I also made a card today...I thought it was for a challenge but when I was done...I forgot what challenge it was oh well....still a fun image to color.
This image was 1.oo on Kenny K's website....for a short time only.

Kenny K Anything goes Challenge

Hello and good day!
Yesterday I finished another great blog hop over at Kenny Ks Kraft Girls blog, another great bunch of talented ladies and I really love the Kenny K of my favorites was The Big O....too cute and of course I have already purchased that Digi.
Well I had to make a card to go along with the blog hop so I picked one of my other favorite Kenny K Stamps...this one is called bling baby.
This is the first time I tried picking my CS first then coloring my image to match the paper I had chose.
I think this may be a better way to start a the past I would color my image first....then scramble to find CS on hand that matched...anyway here is what I created.

It wsa a little sad for me because it made me think of my dog Prince...he just passed away a few days before.
Prince was my Cocker Spaniel and he was 14 years old...every year we put him in the house on the fouth of July so he could hide by the
So I have been feeling sad for my doggie....Chanel is doing her best to pick up my spirits.
