Paper Sundaes Challenge #42 - For the Boys

Happy Sundae!  Today marks Paper Sundaes 42nd Challenge & it is a fun one!  The theme this week is "For the Boy's" and is being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp!  If you haven't shopped there you should as it really is a one-stop shop!  Be sure to play along for your chance to win a gift certificate to their store!

For my card I used the image "Skater Ian" by The Greeting Farm & made a card for my son.
It was so much fun to make!  I used paper from Bo Bunny called Xtreme Teen and coloured the image to match with copics.  I embossed the cardstock with these cool new folders by Sizzix from a pack called Plaid & Snowflakes.   I love how deeply they emboss & can't wait to use the snowflake one for some Christmas cards!  I embossed the cardstock and then wrapped one with some black twine from my stash that I have probably had since I started scrapbooking/cardmaking many years ago.  Boy was it nice to finally use it!  Other supplies used:  Glitter Brads by Recollections,  and Foam glitter stars inked with black memento ink.  Hope you like it!

Make sure you stop by the Paper Sundaes Blog to meet the new Sundae Girls!  Their work is fabulous & I'm looking forward to working with them.  

My card will be entered into the following challenges:

Cards For Men Challenge #22- Anything Goes (as long as it's for a male).  This is for the only man in my life, my son!
Moving Along with the Times Challenge #70 - Card for a Child (made for my 10 year old son)

Paper Sundaes Challenge - A Natural Woman

Happy Sundae!  It's been so long since my last post and it's nice to be back creating again.  I had to take some time to focus on my son in the past few weeks and haven't been able to create & post as much as I would have liked to.  Thank you to my amazing Paper Sundaes DT girls for your support, I appreciate it more than you will ever know!

This week's Challenge at Paper Sundaes has a theme "A Natural Woman" so we would like to see anything you create which includes women & nature of some sort!  This week we are being sponsored by the fabulous Wags & Whiskers available at Stamp & Create and our DT got to choose images from the latest Wags N Whiskers Fairy Release #2 and I chose "Laila".   I have to say that I really am glad that they came out with a 2nd group of fairies because I loved the first release so much.  You can see the first set here!
Laila was coloured with copics.  This great paper is from Kaiser Scrapbook & I absolutely love this line for all the purple & green in it!  The good thing about this card is that I got to use some goodies from my stash of swapped items on SCS!  I received these fabulous punched leaves quite awhile ago so it was nice to finally use them.  Other supplies used:  Flowers by Mulberry Street, pearls, ribbon & Lavender stickles!  

My card will be entered into the following challenges:

You still have time to enter Paper Sundaes DT call up until October 26th!  For more details you can check out the post here.

Hope you have a fabulous Sunday!  I'll be busy helping my son sew on his badges for his new cub uniform today!  He was invested officially into the group this past week and was so excited & proud I had to share a pic!  Isn't he cute?

Paper Sundaes Challenge - Karen's Doodles

Happy Sundae!  This week's Paper Sundae Challenge involves using something from your stash (trying for something you've had for 6 months or more)!   This week we are being sponsored by the fabulous Karen's Doodle's and are DT was lucky enough to pick an image to use for this challenge.  I chose to use the image "Pumpkins" because it reminds me of fall/thanksgiving.  I made a Thanksgiving card to give to a friend but I think this image would be perfect for place cards at a big family Thanksgiving dinner or for your pumpkin patch scrapbook layouts!
I coloured the image with copics and then sponged the background with orange ink.  The items from my stash include the DP by Daisy Bucket Designs Sweet Marabella collection is dated 2007, orange fibre by Making Memories which I've had for at least a year & the orange brads which I've had for quite a while also.   Be sure to check out the Paper Sundaes blog to see all the creations by our amazing DT!  Enjoy your Sunday!
