Sweet Sketch Wednesday25 and Inktegrity

Our sponsor this week over at SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY is: Joni fromINKTEGRITY.
I fell in love with this little train when I saw a Christmas card that Joni made resently. She made the train into a Christmas train. It was so cute. So, I had to try my hand at it too. Here is my creation:

I used Copic markers.
Y16, R29 and G28. The paper is from The Paper Studio and DCWV.
I used a Stampin UP stamp for the sentiment. The wheels are buttons that I have threaded yarn through the button holes. I made a little wreath to go on the engine. It was made from a Martha Stewert punch. I added Rhinestones to the wreath and the poinesetta. I also used a Martha Stewart Snowflake punch and leaf punch.

Then, a couple of weeks ago, I won this sweet little mouse from Joni when she had a Blog Hop. Isn't he adorable? His name is Bizzy. He can carry many different items on his tray. Joni has a fun collections of different images that you can have him carry.

I used paper from The Paper Studio. The markers are Copic: R29, G28, YG03, YR65, C3 and RV14. The sentiment is from Stampin Up. I also used a Martha Stewart Tree Punch and Snowflake punch that I have added glitter to. Gold cord for the ribbon.

For the
Humble Pie Challenge
this week we were to make an altered item. I have used a shadow box from the Martha Stewert Collection. I love these boxes because you can do so many things with them. They make great gifts for Christmas or birthdays. You can do just about anything with them.

The stamps I have used are Stampin Up: Baroque Mofits,
Time Well Spent and Friendship Bloom the make the floral
design in the shadow box.
The ink is from Stampin Up :
Reding Hood Red and Real Red.
The ribbon is purchased from Hobby Lobby.

Martha Stewart Lace Sallop Punch and MS collector box.

Thanks for visiting my blog.


CAARDVARKS have teamed up with The Scrapbook Nook for their latest challenge.
For the challenge at CAARDVARKS, I choose a stamp by Amy Bradley Designs. I purchased this stamp at Hobby Lobby. It is just too cute and I had to have it. The name of the stamp is: "Merry Christmas Sled."
The sentimant is from a SU stamp: Merry Christmas.
The ink is SU: Gable Green Pink Passion, Lovely Lilac and Temping Turquise. I know the colors are pretty untraditional but so is the stamp.
The paper I used is from Stampin Up and DCWV. I also used a Martha Stewart punch.
I used an embossing folder to emboss the pale blue paper and glitter to accent the sentiment.

Good morning everyone. I have been MIA for the past week. I left last Wednesday to visit with my sisters and my dad and just got home last night. We really had a wonderful time together again. We got some card making done, sponsors scheduled, of course, shopping, walking and visiting. Judi and I walked in a snow storm and when we got back to the house, we had a pocket full of snow in our pockets as big as a snowball.

After helping Arlana with her Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog,
I have a whole new appreciation for all her hard work in keep it
up. There are many hours put in to keep things running.
She is doing a wonderful job!! Thank you Arlana. If you haven't
seen her blog stop on over here. You will love the DT work.
They are awesome!!
Now for our sponsor this week: "The Digi Stamp Boutique"
We just love Sally Ann's images. They are just darling.
Sally Ann is offering $15.00 to the winner of the challenge
this week over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Hope to see you there!

This is "Winter Sophie" I used glitter on the snowflakes
and snow. It is hard to see it in the picture. But it really
made the card come to life. She is such a sweet image.
I used Copic marker: E00, Y15 and RV14. Stampin Up Ink:
Rose Red, Pink Passion, Pretty In Pink, Yoyo Yellow and
Chocolate Chip.
The paper is from The Paper Co. and DCWV Designer Pack.
I accented the card with rhinestones and Ribbon.

The card below is called "Christmas Robin."
I used paper from The Paper Company and Copic markers:
YG03, E09, E37, RV14, R29, B32 and Black. I also used light blue
Pastels from Stampin Up on both cards. After taking the pictures
for this card, I changed the blue panel. I used my Swiss Dots
embossing folder to accent the blue. I didn't have time to retake
the pics, but it did make a difference.

I hope you have a wonderful week!
