SSDS - Anything goes

The challenge at Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturday challenge is well basically anything you want to make. My Favorite Things is our sponsor for this week and they were so kind give the design team a digital stamp of our choice to use on our project. I choose the Digi Kit - The Boo Crew to work with for my project. I know it's way past Halloween and a long time before it comes around again but I wanted it anyway. This year in our neighborhood someone started the "Booing" the houses and it was a lot of fun. I'm sure this will become a tradition, so I thought I would make this door hanger for us to put out after we have been booed.

I'll might try and laminate this since it will be on the outside to protect it from the elements.
Go to SSDS and check out what else our other DT's made this week and enter your own project for a chance to win from this week's sponsor, My Favorite Things.

SSDS - Spring Card

Last week Austin had strep then this week the stomache bug. It's so hard to watch your kids be sick and you can't fix it. : ( It's Saturday morning and Austin is feeling much better today. Kids sure bounce back quicker than us adults.

Ok so this week at Scrap, Stamp and Doodle Saturday challenge blog is a very easy challenge. Just make a Spring themed card. We've had fog the last week or so and rain today so thinking about spring is nice. My card is a 3x3 that I ended up using in a swap. The patterned paper is from Sassafrass.

See the other DT's creations over at SSDS and then enter your own spring card. This week's sponsor is Revidevi and if you are the winner you have your choice of one of her digi stamp sets.

SSDS - Celebration Card

I've been without my computer for too long. Finally it's back and working great. Had 9 viruses, 30 malware or spyware and 1 root something or other removed. There are some really bored people out there just creating crap to put on our computers to make it difficult on us. Ok so make a virus that you can steal a bazillion dollars with, I get that, but just to cause people you don't even know problems. UGH!! I think a lot of them are young, immature teenagers just getting their kicks out of it because they CAN do it. Ok, sorry, I'm off my soap box now.

This week's challenge at Scrap, Stamp and Doodle Saturday challenge is to make a card for a celebration. It can be birthday, new baby, wedding, new home or what else you may be celebrating. Our sponsor this week is Sweet Pea Stamps and they were very generous and gave the DT stamps to use for the this challenge. This image and the sentiment are both from Sweet Pea Stamps.
I colored the image with Copics and I think this may be the first time I have colored and entire image including the backgroud. I will say though don't use Quick Quotes chalk ink if you are going to use Copics to color. I wasn't even thinking when I did it and as soon as I started coloring I noticed it bleeding. I didn't go back and redo them but hopefully covered up or fixed all the areas where it bleed or smeared. Oh yeah she's got some dark smoldering eyes there doesn't she? : ) Well that was another case of me just going over board.
I ended up coloring over all the sentiment only because it looked a little smeared anyways. Then I colored the background of that because the white just stood out too much. I should have just stamped the sentiment on a colored piece of paper but I had already put my stamp, pad and cleaner away and didn't want to get it out again. I know, wow, I was kind of lazy on this one wasn't I? : O
Go check out SSDS challenge and what all our fabby DT's made for this. Also if you participate in this challenge, which come on, this one is easy, you will be up for a prize from our sponsor Sweet Pea Stamps.

SSDS - Use a Picture Challenge (Twilight)

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a fun New Years! It's still almost hard to believe that it's 2010!!! I remember when it turned 1999 and thinking WOW it's 1999 just like in Prince's song! Then we had the 2000 computer scare and everyone thought the whole computer world would shut down because of the date. Now it's 2010!

I don't usually make new year's resolutions but this year I did. I have resloved to declutter my ENTIRE house. I mean everything!!! In every room, closet, cabinet, drawer and even in the attic and the garage. My closet, master bath, Austin's room, kitchen cabinets and pantry are all done. I've already taken several boxes to the Good Will store and thrown out several bags of junk and trash. The other thing I'm doing is making my own planner and trying to keep a daily schedule in hopes of staying more organized and use my time wisely and effeciently. We'll see how that goes. Ok sooooooo now how does this all relate to Scrap, Stamp and Doodle Saturday challenge? Oh it does because for this week's challenge you are to use a photograph on a card. Well, I fudged a little and used a couple of photos on the cover of my planner instead of a card. ; )
Since this picture was taken I have added more to the front cover and have finished the back cover and both inside covers. I have pictures but on my other computer which I am having trouble with once again. Getting blue screen with message on it, twice tonight. : O So once I have it up and running again I'll post the updated pics and hopefully finish the project soon.

Check out SSDS for the this weeks challenge and see what our other DT's did for the challenge. This weeks sponsor is Phindy's Place Etsy shop. She has some adorable digital images.
