A Faery Ink Halloween!

Happy Halloween Blogland!
I have had some fun making some fun goodie bags-
Amanda the wonderful artist of Faery Ink had an AWESOME
Halloween swap on her Facebook Fan Page- since my swap partners,
have received there goodies- I can share my projects now.

 This great image is named Gabbie Vampire... the sentiment is also
from Faery Ink.
 The bags were very simple to make- I googled and found a tutorial on Youtube.
I started with a 12x12 piece of paper and cut down to 8x11.5- then took out my
scoreboard...on the long side I scored at 3 1/2, 5 1/2, 9 and 11.  Then turned to the short side
and scored at 2 inches.  I then cut the 2 inch notches on the score lines to create the bottom- folded
and glued.  Then punched holes on top to thread ribbon- decorated and done.
 I was able to make 6 bags on one Saturday afternoon- this pumpkin and sentiment
were offered for FREE- if your a subscriber to the monthly newsletter from
 Another Halloween swap bag- using Gabbie Vampire...instead of 
using the green/ purplr colors...I used the reds/ oranges here.

So have a Spooky and Spectacular Halloween!!!
Love and Hugs,

Little Indie by Artbymiran

Hi There- it's my turn to host the
Artbymiran Showcase Blog

I am using Little Indie 
 I wanted to make a flat card- for mailing purposes.  S I did not add any embellishments.  I used a "busy" paper and added a sentiment.  I accented the paper with some gold vellum.
 I did an easy fold- made a standard 5x7 card- then folded a tab, that measured
1 1/2 inches- to give a little dimension.
 I colored this little cutie with my Copic markers.

If you want to win some free images- hop on over
to the Artbymiran Challenge blog and join in fun.

Sisterly Love By Faery Ink

It's time for a new challenge at CCC Digi Creations
Our theme is Anything Goes

I am showcasing the beautiful image
Sistery Love by Faery Ink 

I created a step card- It is made with a 6x6 piece of  paper and then just cut in certain spots- that is it and so simple to do.  Just wanted to do something a little different this time.  This image is so precious- I have 2 sisters and I am in the middle.  They both have birthday's in January and mine is in August- I always say I am the FAVORITE because I Have my own birthday month!!!  Anyway, they both have a desk at work and I thought this card would be perfect to keep on their desk, as a reminder that I love them.  So off to make another one!

I hope you join in the challenge- no's Anything Goes!

Little Flower Fairy by All Dressed Up

Hello Crafty Buddies!
Crafty Gals Corner has a new challenge today
This week the challenge is Ribbons AND/OR Flourishes!
I had the pleasure of playing with this adorable image

 Normally with this type of image I would color her with soft,
delicate colors and accent with flowers and pearls.  But I wanted to make
a Christmas card- and it worked perfectly!
After coloring her with my Copic markers, I added some stickles.  Then used
Graphic 45 paper (Joyous line), I distressed the paper edges with my
Tim Holtz tool and some ribbon and Christmas tree charms...all done!

I invite you to stop by  and enter the challenge today!!

Cupcake With Flower by Robyn's Fetish

Hello Crafty Friends-
I am excited to share, I am a NEW Design Team member at
Craftying With Friends Challenge Blog... It is a once a month, Anything Goes challenge.
My first project is an easel card- using the image Cupcake With Flower by Robyn's Fetish

I think the chocolate frosting looks just like the Buttercream frosting you would get at the bakery!!
My favorite is with chocolate cake too- but I did not want my colors to all blend together, so I colored the cake part as a yellow cake mix.  Also, very good!!

So I hope you come on over to Crafting With Friends Challenge blog and enter your creation- after all it is Anything Goes!!
