Bloggers Challenge Things with Wings

Okay I don't understand but blog is acting up again it is typing everything on the line below until I hit enter then it moves it up good thing this is an easy card!!!
Not sure where background paper came from but it is so great for this image from TLC Creations.  The bird was sitting on a branch but for this card I just wanted the bird.
Just a note is by Rubber Stampede and I stamped it in SU Real Rust. I also used the Real Rust to make a sort of Whisped Frame Technique as seen in the Technique Junkies Newsletter. I then distressed the edges and used more Real Rust to highlight the edges.

Been so busy with church this week and entertaining I didn't get a chance to do this until this morning.
The church pastor has asked me to present to the church a Coupon class/swap.  I have been doing this for several years but got really serious when the economy went south!!!  I haven't paid full price for too many things for quite a while now and this week I actually got 2 Pantene Pro V shampoos for free.  So I will share what knowledge I have and hopefully there will be others that can add information too.  Any gals out there coupon and have any ideas for me?  I just started putting my coupons in a binder with clear sheet of 9 pockets (type like used for ATC's) so that has been a huge help.  Please e-mail me at my email address in the group files if you have any hints!!!

That's all for now

Have a great weekend may it be blessed and also have a blessed week!

SNSDC6 Happy Father's Day

Here is my submission to the Sweet N Sassy Digital Challenge .  I didn't want to do the usual Father's Day card so I thought I'd use some unusual colors. 
All paper is from my card stock.  I started with a medium blue and printed a Sweet N Sassy Lighthouse Digital and Happy Father's Day was computer generated. Then I highlighted around the image with Color Box inks using a sponge.  I used the yellow paper to make the image pop.  I then mounted all the layers on a darker blue card.
I like the effect I achieved and this will be for my grandson to give his Dad for Father's Day.  My son is partial to purple so these blues seem to be in that color range.  Not sure my grandson would give his dad a purple card!
Have a blessed weekend and a blessed week!!!

I Did it Creations Hat Challenge #58

I have had problems since yesterday trying to get my pictures to show here and on other blogs.  Did something a little different and it worked.
Hope I'm still in time to post this hat card.  I did what is called Paper Piecing on the hat ribbon.

The Bloggers Challenge 216 Sketch

Good Morning All,

Before I start I just want to let you all know Coffee is doing fine!!  We were sure we were going to lose her (even the vet thought so) well we figured she used up two of her nine lives!!  She well, and ornery as ever!!  hank you all for your messages of concern and prayers the really did help!

This  one was a really challenging for me.  I wanted the muted background of the original sketch.  After trying papers colored card stock I settled on chalks.  I think I got what I wanted and alternated the colors.

The Grape image is from TLC Creations and the sympathy is computer generated.   Colored with copics.

That's it hope you all have  blessed weekend and week to come.

Bloggers Challenge 215 Pets

I decided that I would use a picture of a cat because I never seem to talk about my cat.  I almost didn't post it because on Monday she ate some thread.  I am always so careful and make sure I pick up after I sew, and vacuum.  Apparently she took it right off the machine.  She is very sick right now and the vet says it's touch and I decided to post this anyway and ask for prayers for my prescious cat.  Her name is Coffee.  Thank you.

The images used are by Nate Owens and are sold through Squigglefly .  He has the most unique images.  Coloring is Copics and paper DCWV.

Blessings to all,

Picture at the top is my beautiful Coffee!
