A big announcement...

This week at Hambo Hoedown, the "Newscaster - digi" and the sentiments were offered if you had entered last weeks challenge and we had to include some newspaper in it. I went for a CAS card and wanted to put more emphasis on the headline. I colored with my Prisma pencils but used copics for the skin of the newscaster. Cardstock is from Martha Stewart.

Here's my take:


Hambo Hoedown - What's the news?
Simon says stamps - Anything goes
Stamps R Us - Masculine

Some Odd girl is celebrating...

The Odd girl is having a birthday and Kristy is giving away 5 stamps of your choice. You only need to read the post below and follow them.

Here goes:

Today, I just want everybody to spread the word that there’s some excitement going on here, and post a link on your blog to bring people over to say hello and spread more birthday love. If you can do that by October 31st at midnight eastern time, and post a link below to YOUR blog post, you’re eligible to win one of SIX prize packages, each consisting of FIVE Some Odd Girl digis (of your choice!). Yep, simple as that! All I ask is that you allow a bit of time once the month wraps up for me to get your prizes coordinated – the six winners will be announced back here in the evening of November 1st.
Interested?! :) I thought so! You’ve got everything you need…. now let’s hear you sing!

Treat bag à la Halloween

I came up with this title as I was typing this post. In case you're wondering what it means, well simply it just says Treat bag for Halloween.

I'm using it for the YNS challenge and Karen offered everyone who emailed her the spider digi FREE. I have embossed the treat bag, colored the spider with copics and used some Halloween ribbons from the dollar store. The pumpkins and spider webs are from the dollar store too. The sentiment is from Create with TLC.

The spider is hanging from a piece of rafia rope and held with a brad fastener. I've also made this card for Papertake Weekly and we had to get some inspiration from this picture where I've chosen orange for my treat bag.

Here's my take:


Papertake Weekly - Autumn Flair from photo
If the shoe fits - Halloween/Fall
Wags and Whiskers #65- Fall
By the cute and girly - Anything goes
CCEE Stampers - Something related to fall (Halloween)

Happy birthday Daisy

This week is Daisy's birthday and since she is LOVES popsicles, I couldn't resist and get this digi from Doodle Pantry. I got the sketch from CPS and here is my take:


Doodle Pantry #17 - Use a digi
CPS 241 Part 1-  Sketch
Sassy Cheryl - Show me #47

Zombie Bunny

Hambo Hoedown has done a fantastic job for this week's digi which is "Zombie Bunny - digi" and I needed to use their sketch for this week's challenge.  I've colored the rabbit with copics and I've used Basic Grey - Spider's Web for my background paper. My border was punched using the Martha Stewart Spider's Web punch and I've used one of Prisma's flower and a butterfly brad from my stash. The sentiment is from Hambo Hoedown.

Here's my take:

Basic Grey - Halloween
CMC Copics - Halloween
Sweet Stampin' - Halloween
Sentimental Sundays - Halloween plus sentiment
Through the Craft Room - Halloween plus Orange
The Stamping  Boutique #17 - Spooky Scary Halloween

Happy Halloween - A tag!

Another Halloween but this time , my daughter (4) and myself made this Halloween tag - Our first! The image is Pumpkin and Tags. She wanted to give some treat bags to her friends and thus, I have helped her in the cutting of the image and the rest, she has done it herself. I have used my prismacolor pencils and she taped in some Halloween foam shapes on the tag. I think it's cute for a 4-year old!!! What do  you think??

Hope for the Cure of Breast Cancer

For this past week, so many blogs have been talking about fighting Breast Cancer and I do hope that one day, there will be a cure for this disease. One of my aunts was diagnosed with this condition and she had to remove one of her breast unfortunately. She is now well though. I owuld like to dedicate this card to her because she is the living proof that even with only one breast, one can still survive...

I have inspired myself from Card Patterns and most of my colors are PINK for this cause. I have used Hope Butterfly, colored it with copics and used stickles. I have also embossed my paper with the Cricut Lite Bloom embossing folder and used some ribbons from my stash.
