Hello there!  How is everyone? Any Black Friday shoppers out there?  I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving!  I have a few cards to share before I head off on my annual shopping adventure with my best friend.

Little Turkey from Aurora Wings was a with purchase freebie I received this month.  He is colored with Copics and cut using the Classic Circles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  The image is then matted on Pic of Edge Circles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  Papers are The Pumpkin Patch stack from DCWV.  I added a couple of flowers and a few flat back adhesive pearls.  I gave this creation to my parents from me and my little turkey.

Markers used: Copics (E00, E04, E07, E09, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E31, E70, E74, E79, R20, Y38, YR24)

Next up is an image from Simply B Stamps called Chris and Little Appetite.  It's part of the Teen Scene Dragon Pets collection.  The image I colored with Copics and cut using the Labels Ten Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  I added a Tim Holtz metal arrow and corner as well as a stamped sentiment cut with the Fishtail Flags Stax Die-namics (My Favorite Things).  Papers are also The Pumpkin Patch stack (DCWV). This card went to my small man (who refused to even eat any turkey, by the way!).

Markers used: Copics (E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E31, E70, E74, R20, V95, V99, YG91, YG93. YG95)

My final card features Feather Crown from Saturated Canary.  She is absolutely gorgeous, isn't she?  Krista was kind enough to offer her as a freebie recently.  This beauty was colored with Copics and with the Resplendent Rectangles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  I added Shabby White Fran-tage to the image panel and highlighted her eyes with Glossy Accents. Papers are once again The Pumpkin Patch stack (DCWV).  Flowers, pearls, and a feather embellish this card I made for my best friend.

Markers used: Copics (E00, E04, E07, E09, E11, E21, E23, E31, E35, E37, E39, E59, E79, R20, Y32, Y38, YR15, YR18, YR24 )

KennyK's Krafty Krew #184 - Anything Goes with a Twist: Black & White

Hi there!  Two posts in one week?  I must be on a roll!  Or I could just be excited about a new challenge (and a new release) over at KennyK!  There are two new images plus a sentiment sheet that you need to check out!  And while you're at it, why not play along with our Anything Goes challenge?  The twist is Black & White!  Use any KennyK image to play along for your chance to win 3 images of choice, but get rewarded with 5 if you use the twist!

I needed a birthday card for my dad so I used an image from the Retro collection called Smart Aleck.  I love the comic book feel!  I colored him with Copics then stamped a Stampin' Up sentiment on the image panel.  I added a few die cuts from My Favorite Things (Reel Life, Skyline Border, Rock and Roll).  I also used a bit of Tim Holtz film strip.  Papers are My Mind'sEye - Meadow Lark.

Head over to KennyK's Krafy Krew to see the other Black & White creations from the team!  The rest of the ladies used the new release images so you won't want to miss them!

Markers used: Copics (E00, E04, E11, E21, N0, N2, N4, N6, N8, 100).

Betty's 40th Birthday Hop

Hello, blogland!  I have been a very bad crafter and DT member as of late!  Being all but non existent, I'm afraid.  Sometimes, as much as you love something, you just need a break.  I've been taking some time to focus on my home and on Kayne and on just having some down time.  But there is an occasion happening today that required my attention and a bit a crafting...

Today is Betty Roberts' 40th Birthday!!!   YES, the BIG 4-0!  So Corinne masterminded a plan to  make it as special as we possibly can!   The awesome Rachel Sharp (sharkie19 on deviantart) drew up an image for us to use for Betty's Birthday!!  A whole bunch of SUPER TALENTED ladies have done some UNBELIEVABLE projects for you to see.  They have all been mailed out to Betty so she should get some AMAZING mail...but we thought you would all like to see these FANTASTIC projects..

Corinne also has wonderful cards by Leanne, Cynthia Cole, April, Cat, Dena

Betty is colored with Copics.  The papers are Fiesta Forever from DCWV.  I added a few flowers, a metal corner, a Flag Banner die from La-La-Land Crafts, and chipboard glitter numbers.

Happy 40 and Fabulous, Betty!
