Hello hello, I hope you had a fabulous weekend and ready for another wonderful week!  I have something totally WILD for you today!  That's right!  Say hello to the Rhino (SKU#P1186), isn't it so so cool?  Love the details!  

So, for my card this week, I colored the rhino with watercolor pencils.

Then I decided to create a background using the Swirl Block (SKU#F3131), I inked it with distress ink pad in peeled paint, I also distressed the edges in black soot.

And finally, I added the Born to be Wild (SKU#C4091) sentiment and finished it with a couple of pearls, VIOLA!  I hope you like it!

Challenge time... Quilling?!

Hello hello and happy Thursday!  Up for a challenge?!  Over at the Art Impressions' blog, we are having a super fun challenge, the theme is QUILLING!   Yes, you heard it...  I never done quilling for my cards before, but it's quite popular now...  So, I decided to give it a try!  Hehe!  Super super fun and easy to do!  I decided to created a candle which will go perfect for my pretty Holly Wreath (SKU#U2752).   To create the candle, I just cut cardstock in 1/4" strips and roll it up, glued together to create the shape of the candle, then added another strip of paper to create the edge of the candle, Viola!

I hope you like it and come play along over at Ai and for a chance to win $10 gift certificate at the store, click HERE for more details!

Totally challenged!

Hello hello and happy Wednesday!  I was totally challenged yesterday...  not only I made not one but two projects...  Holy cow!Smiley from Plus, they are 'manly'.  And without further adieu, here they are:

Project 1:  

I created a tag for the Farm Fresh Challenge, the theme is Anything but a card.  So, I used one of my 'messed up' mixed media tag with the My Guy Ian set, then I created another cool background by using the Dyluison stencil, and finally I added the super cool duck tape.

Project 2:

Here is a card that I made for my father in law, he loves golf...  And today is his birthday!   Happy happy Birthday!  For the image, I used this super cool golfer called Earl from Art Impression Golden Oldies collection (which was embossed, then colored with watercolor pencil).  I created the background using the Hero Arts birthday stamp, the paper is from My Mind's Eye Stella Rose, then I added some ribbon & twine, a super cool banner from Memory Box Simple Banner die, and some Prima blings.

Creative Craft Challenge 2 - Bingo (Blue, Stamp, Emobss)
Forever Friends - Ribbon or Twine
ABC Challenge - Sketch

I hope you enjoy them and thanks so much for stopping by!
