Kimmie Loves Apples!

Happy day off  #2 to me!! You know what that means right! I had plenty of time to play along with another challenge!!! today I am playing along with Kraftin' Kimmies sketch  challenge !

Today I am using Abigail Apple! Isn't she such a cutie!  She was given to me by my card friend Marilyn  ( thank you Marilyn! ) I was sooo excited to add Abigail to my Kimmie collection! One thing I love about Kimmies stamps is not only is the actual stamp adorable, but the accessories ( in this case the 2 little apples)  are ALWAYS an awesome addition! I used my apples in my circle background AND on the inside!

Love Balloon

Good evening everyone!  Aahhh what a relaxing day!  No work for me today! and weather was gloomy so I just stayed in drank coffee all day and made a new card to play along with a couple of challenges! I MUST admit that the hardest part about making a card for me is the layout of my card.. A great paper friend of mine Cheryl ( Hi Cheryl ! )  recommended me to a VERY inspiring blog by Amy Sheffer called pickled paper designs  If you haven't seen her site yet, you must check it out!
today I am entering my card into 2 differant challenges: color throw down the challenge is to use the following colors:

and I'm also entering my card in to the Mojo Monday sketch challenge

using a sketch layout was a TON of help for me! maybe after following a few sketch challenges I'll get better at my layouts! I also had a Ton if inspiration this week from my new paper friend Marilyn ( Hi Marilyn! ) and from a blog called sending you a little smile these ladies do a lot of multiple stamping of the image and layering to make the image 3D! here is my take on it!!
Today I used a stamp from a company called Elzybells, which I'm sad to say is no longer opened. I used my Copics to color my image and Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage photo to distress my edges. And of course i couldn't forget my diamond glaze and yellow stickles!
Please pretend that you dont see my bubbles in my diamond glazed balloon :(

Today I am playing along with truly scrumptious challange to create a shaker card... Its been awhile since I'v made one, but it was tons of fun! I used a set of Peachy Keen stamps that I purchased last year for Christmas and never "Inked" :(  I know how DARE me right! haha.. This cute little snowman is a set of three and there little gloves are meant to be cut out and used as a 3D object! sooo cute!
I used White micro beads and chunky glitter inside

Halloween Hattie!

Good evening everyone! Today I would like to share my VERY FIRST card with you! I am playing along with kraftin' kimmie's 2nd birthday challenge where a LUCKY crafter will get a chance to be a part of her awesome team!! wish me luck!
Today I have used 2 of my favorite kimmie stamps just PERFECT for Halloween cards!!

Hattie and the Haunted House.
I used my Mask it paper to mask Hattie so it looked like she is flying out of the Haunted house. I stamped my image on Neenah white card stock and colored my entire card with my copic markers. The scary fence and pumpkin punches are both Martha Stewart. I almost ALWAYS use stickes ( I love sparkles) or my diamond glaze. Today I used  lime green stickles on Hattie's dress and used diamond glaze on  my moon.
Here is a quick look at the inside... The small little ghosts actually come with Hattie!
Thank you to everyone who took the time to stop and look at my blog!!! I
