An Old Fashioned Teacup

This cup is a bonus digital image from Sandi Sample, very pretty.  The card is for the August CDAC Progressive Challenge.  I used denim Ranger distress ink with a stipple brush for the background of the cup and colored the flowers with copics and added some trim with a silver paint pen.  The background paper and sentiment are from Paper Boutique, a scrapbook kit.

When we got married, they used to give the bride a teacup shower before she was married. Now we don't use these cups too often, because the dishwasher takes the silver or gold off the edges.  Now most of my friends prefer to use a mug whether it is for tea or coffee.  Now I have china mugs for tea.


Another card for the August CDAC Progressive Challenge.  This pretty teapot was colored with copics and the background of the teapot was stippled with Ranger Antique Linen distress ink.  Paper doily behind teapot.  Paper flowers from my stash.  Border around mauve cardstock done with Fiskers punch. 

The Baker

A sweet digi by Jen Lee, Digi Stamps 4 Joy for the August 2011 Progressive Challenge.  I have colored the baker and the cupcakes in the background with copics.  The DP are from Niki Sivils, and the Blue diamond DP from Colorbok.  Sentiment was silver colored with orange copic from stash.

Red & White Fan

An image by Priscilla Styles for the CDAC Progressive Challenge, this series ends at the end of August.  Then there will be a two week series with new images.  I have colored the image with copics and cut around it.  The white flower is from Petaloo and the red ones from Dollarama.  There is a stick pin with two beads, red and black.  The die cut is Martha Stewart and the DP is from Colorbok.

Cool Guitar

This is another digi from Kenny K.  Just love these digis for my older teenage grandchildren.  I think they enjoy them too - something different from Grandma.  I have colored the image with copics, cutting the pitcture  on an angle and backing it with black and white.  The DP is from Teresa Collins.

Antique Car

I made this card for the CDAC MMSC117 (Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge)  It is a fun challenge to enter as it makes you use backgrounds, that you may not think of yourself.  Because this card is for a man, I did not add too many embellishments.  I have gold embossed an image from Priscilla Styles.  Added a gold frame using a Spellbinder Nestabilities die cut.  The background DP is from Cosmo Cricket, and the two colored cardstocks are from my stash.  The sentiments are from Horizon.

The Dancer


This sweetheart of a digi is from Whoopsiedaisy Digi Stamps, and I am entering this card in the CDAC Progressive Challenge for August. I have paper pieced the image, and colored her with copics.  The background paper is from my stash, and I used a Martha Stewart punch.  The flower is from Studio 18.                                       

It is my grandson Justin's 16th birthday to-day, and we had a nice dinner for him at our house last night.        
There were seven of us, he and his brother are now over six feet tall so I would say all adults at the table.       
I made him a Kenny K digital card with a hockey player as that is his sport, but with a very busy time over the last week I forgot to take a picture of the card before I put it in the envelope.

Girl in Tub

CDAC has a brand new challenge, a Progressive Challenge of 6 sessions, first time period 4weeks, after that two weeks for each challenge, with new images for each session, the images are free if you have entered each time.  The first image I have chosen is by Anne's Digital Art which had the Top Vote for June "Everyone" Drawing Challenge.  It is a sweet image which I colored with copics and Ranger Distress Inks.  The BG paper is from my stash.  The chipboard kitten and the sentiment are  from K&Company, and the lace is from Dollarama Crafts.

I have company for the week end, so will probably not have much time to be on my computer.  My youngest son and his three children are here, while my DIL is away with her friends for the weekend.  We should have a fun time even though it is suppose to rain this weekend.

Looking Out

Another fun digi from Whoopsidaisy.  The girl is a freebie image for the Freebie Challenge CDACFDC29,
which is going on now.  I have colored her with copics and have added some glitter glue to the flowers in her hair and on the ground.  The fence is also an image from Whoopsidaisy and has been colored with Ranger Distress inks.  The flowers on the top of the fence are chipboard and are from a scrapbook kit.  The background was done with a cuttlebug folder.

We were hurrying out of the house this morning, so I added this image very hastily to My Page for the gallery, and I left the challenge tag off.  Hope I can rectify that little detail (haste makes waste.)  Spent the day in Niagara Falls stateside to-day.  ( Don't know why when we are crossing the border, I always get behind the car that gets held up for some reason or another.)  To-day it happened both coming and going.  But we had a fun day anyway.
