Christmas Card

It's time for a new challenge at The Merry Christmas Challenge.  The theme is always Anything Christmas goes.  Participating in the challenge is a great way to get your holiday cards done in time to be mailed and without the last minute stress.
My card is simple. I used Winter Fairy from Mo's Digital Pencil and let the image and the pretty pattern paper be the focus.  Nothing else was needed but I did add the snowflake die

Jump For Joy

It's Party Time!  
It's Tuesday so that means a new challenge begins over at Digi Choosday.
The DT was challenged to use paper piecing on our projects.  I haven't paper pieced for awhile so it was fun to try it again.
The digi is Jump For Joy from Polkdadoodles.  Looks like she is having fun celebrating.
I hope you join us in the challenge.  And don't forget to shop with the Digi Choosday discount!

Ruby Boho Chic

I am back today with another of the new images from Polkadoodles.  
This lovely is Ruby Boho Chic.  
For this project I did not make a card.  This is the front page of a scrapbook I am making for one of my daycare kids who will be moving on to kindergarten.  I always like to make the front page without a picture so it is more like a introduction to the album.  Due to lack of time this year and the fact I have 2 albums to create for kids moving on to kindergarten, I decided to purchase a premade scrapbook album.  All I have to do is add the pictures.  These papers from Polkadoodles match perfectly with the colors in the premade album .

Ruby Sweet

I am very excited to share another project made using one of the new images from Polkadoodles.
Meet Ruby Sweet. She is available in both a black and white version for you to color and also a precolored version.

 She is gorgeous and I know she will be one of my favorite images to use. Today I am sharing a birthday card but I can see her on so many different types of cards. After coloring her with copics, I painted her dress with extreme glitter paint.  I like to use the Halogram paint. It is clear and paints over the copics beautifully.  When dry, it just gives a nice sparkle. I added a clear gem to her hair for her hair pin.

My card is a gate fold card with a window.  It is super easy to make but I have to admit I did struggle a bit.  The reason why I struggled is I hate to measure.  I prefer to just "eyeball" it.  Anyway, in order to make this card with the layers work, you do need to measure a bit.  
I used very few embellishments for this card because the digi and the papers are all so gorgeous that not much else is needed.  The papers are also from Polkadoodles and are part of the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles paper sets.

Here is the card opened up:

Ruby Celebration

I'm so excited!  Polkadoodles has a new girl in the shop. 
 Her name is Ruby and she is oh so pretty, cute, sassy and classy all in one. You can find her in the new section of the Polkadoodles Shop

I'll be showing projects I have made with the new gal all week long so I hope you stop back by to see more of Ruby.
After I colored  her with copics, I added stickles to her dress for some added sparkle.
