There is a new challenge over at Alphabet Challenge  

This challenge is the letter "M"


For the "M" I chose Monkey.. who doesn't love monkeys.. I used My favorite things monkey, bananas and sentiment. I colored with copics. I used the dies and then dug through my scraps and created the background. I used Stampin up punches for the sentiment. I finished with some epoxy dots.

hello .. Time for a new challenge over at 

Our theme is ANYTHING GOES

             
                                  Our sponsor is Oddball Art Co.


At first I was going to make a baby card.. then saw the bandaged foot so decided to make it a speedy recovery card instead. I colored the image with copics. I found the crazy background paper that really messes with the eyes. but thought great for the black and white theme I seemed to have going.  I used My favorite things circle die and Art Impressions sentiment used a Stampin up tag die to cut out. I stamped the Lawn Fawn recovery sentiment and used Stampin up die to cut out. I finished with some gems.  I think it's a great recovery card.. 

Challenges:

Merry Christmas - Make My Monday #131

Monday September 14, 2020

Hello... Guess what??? 
I am now on the Make My Monday design team... I am so excited. I love that I can use my own images which I have such a big stash of and they are screaming to be used more often..


Theme for these two weeks is 
CHRISTMAS IN SEPTEMBER



For my card I am using a gifted stamp I received from my dear blog friend Lisa Peronto.. I feel she is like a sister even though we've never met but been on a dt together and communicate often through messenger.. For this card I heat embossed in Simon Says gold  the Sheena design image, then used my Mission gold watercolors and painted the images. I stamped the image twice so I could put the Merry Christmas from Hero Arts in the center. I painted the background but now wish I hadn't ... but it's too late. It's too bright and I even went over it wish a damp paper towel to remove some of the paint. Still too bright.  I added a few sequins.
