the Clothes Form

Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #63 (MMSC63)

It has taken me forever to make time for this card and then forever to make it! LOL I think I actually worked on this for just over 2days.  You know work on a part of it, then leave, come back and mess around a bit more on the focal image ....then leave.....then come back.....then leave.....  Finally, this morning I reached the point of putting it together and life got in my way! Can you even believe that, life stepped right up and took me away from my play time!!!  Urghhh!

 Anyone who has made any type of craft can identify with this scenario! The most important thing is that I finished it and now I am sharing it with you!  The body form image is from Priscilla Styles, it was one of the freebies on CDAC. If you haven't taken the time to check this site out you are missing some outstanding digital companies, some wonderful chatter, some amazing tutorials and a chance to share your art. In fact the rose on this card was made from a tutorial available there. Go take a tour and I am sure you will be wondering why you hadn't gone before.  Leave me some comments and will give you the particulars of this card! Hope you are all staying cool, here in the piedmont of NC it is sweltering, humid and unbearable!

Thanks for stopping by!

Promises Trusted

This is my entry for Mojo Monday's challenge #147. The sketch this week was a great one and really worked to show off this image I found at Graphic Fairy! There is not a stamp in sight, the text is computer generated, this just doesn't happen too often with stamp! Hope you enjoy all the details, I would love to know what you think!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Midnight Madness Challenge #62

It has been a while since I have shared a card; today I will be sharing the card I am entering in MMSC62. First here is the sketch:
You know Priscilla always has two sketches, one that's fancier with more embellies and layers; and one with less layers and etc. I chose to play with the simpler one this week.
 The bird stamp is from Delicious Doodles, this is one of the freebies given at CDAC. If you haven't made a visit yet to check it out you are missing some amazing talent from all the companies that have groups there.
I used a mailer received from Office Max to get the yellow leaves for trim, I also scanned it in so I could use the leaves with the bird image. I found some black paper that was had an almost crepe paper texture and used the Cuttlebug embossing folder with Versamark and then clear embossing powder to get the shiny look for the background paper. Since I didn't have any of the fancy shaped flouish beads I colored some pearls with a black Sharpie and made a small design myself. It's not exactly the same (LOL) but hey, you do what you have to do! *smile*

When you get over to CDAC look me up, I would love to have you stop by! Let me know what you think of the "line of birds"!

card info:
paper: Club Scrap, Office Max mailer
stamp Delicious Doodles
ink  Distress Black, Versamark clear
other: embossing powder, Cuttlebug folder, cuttlebug corner die, MS punch, pearls, waxed twine

Good morning all!
Just in case you haven't heard about the new site for digital stampers it is here.  It is called Crafters Digital Art Center and is only a month old; already over a thousand members!! This was started by Priscilla, yep, the very same Priscilla of the famous Midnight Madness Challenges!

Which bring me to the card for this is for MMSC#60. Here is the sketch:
I thought it would be fun to use one of the free digitals from CDAC to enter the challenge, it just so happens that Priscilla gave a gorgeous butterfly away as a freebie.
This is just one of the amazing images that were played with in June, July promises more fun so plan on dropping in and looking around! NOW, here's the card I made with this lovely image for the MMSC!

This card has a lot of elements on it (even for me) but I think it turned out pretty cool! I really love this image and will incorporating it often! Thanks for dropping in, great to have you visit!
