Here is a Halloween kitty for you. This image is featured at CDAC and is the current image provided for the CDAC 20th Progressive Freebie Challenge. It was created by Priscilla Styles. I colored it with Copic markers and layered it on some Halloween-y colored papers. Thanks for stopping by.


CDAC Progressive Challenge – Surf’s Up

  • Digital image – Tiffany Doodles
  • Stamp – Hero Arts
  • Patterned paper – BoBunny “Sun Kissed Stripe”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Sandpaper

I made this card with the first image in this round of the Crafter’s Digital Art Center’s Progressive Challenge. The digital “stamp” was created by Tiffany Doodles, and I colored it with Copic markers and added some sandpaper for the sand. Just a fun card that will be shipped off to OWH so that a soldier can send a bright “hello” to someone. Thanks for visiting.


Sweet Wishes

  • Digital images – Pattie’s Creations (from CDAC)
  • Stamp – Penny Black “Sweet Wishes”
  • Embossing folder – Cuttlebug
  • Cardstock – BoBunny and Bazzill

The ice cream cone digital stamp is from Pattie’s Creations, via Crafter’s Digital Art Center’s Progressive Freebie Challenge. I printed and colored three of them with Copic markers and popped them up at different levels. Just a very simple card today. Thanks for visiting.


Card Patterns Sketch #165

  • Digital image – Odds and Soxlets (provided by CDAC Progressive Challenges)
  • Patterned cardstock – BoBunny Back to Basics
  • Border punch – Stampin’ Up “Scallop Edge”
  • Die cuts¬† made with Spellbinders Nestabilities “Deckled Rectangles Large”

I used Card Patterns Sketch #165 as inspiration to design this card. The digital stamp came to me by way of the Crafters Digital Art Center’s Progressive Freebie Challenge. I colored it with Copic markers with bright and pastel colors. Thanks for visiting today. It is such a busy time right now, my posts have been few and far between!


A Kitty for Today

  • Digital Image – Just Some Lines (made available at Crafter’s Digital Art Center).
  • Patterned paper – My Mind’s Eye “Stella Rose: Hazel”
  • Ribbon – American Crafts

I based this card design on the current sketch at CPS (Card Positioning System): Sketch #263. This image is from Crafter’s Digital Art Center Progressive Freebies Challenge #16 and the image is from Just Some Lines. I colored it with Copics in a Siamese-y sort of way! This will be my first card for my next box to go to Operation Write Home. I just shipped 25 cards to OWH on Friday. Thanks for visiting.

I used the Card Patterns Sketch #161 for this card, which features one of the bear images from the latest challenge.

Basket of Geraniums Card

  • Patterned papers – Black Market Paper Society “Ebony & Alabaster” 6 X 6″ pad
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

This card features a digital image by Ike’s Art that I got by participating in the Crafter’s Digital Art Center (CDAC) Freebies Progressive Challenge. I colored the image with Copic markers. The card design is based on the current sketch at Mojo Monday: Sketch #234. I created it in response to the March ODBD challenge at Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps, which is a “Tic-Tac-Toe” challenge where I had to pick three in a row from elements on their game board. As it turned out, I managed to get two different lines of three in a row: Brads, Digi Stamp, Die Cut and Die Cut, Layers , Stripes. This was a really fun idea for a challenge! Thanks for stopping by today!

Above is a closer look at a couple of this card’s details.
