Harley ride and a sketch......what a day!

Today was gorgeous!  Went for a 2 hour ride on the harleys and then came home and did the 'Our Craft Lounge' sketch.  Can't hardly beat a day like this.
Never really thought I would get into fairies but this statmp set just speaks to me.
This card seemed to make itself.  The colors and image were made for each other.

Our Craft Lounge sketch challenge

Our Craft Lounge has posted their weekly sketch challenge.  Since I don't seem to have much mojo going right now, I fell back on a holiday card.  They seem to be the easiest for me to put together.  So......Happy Halloween everyone!

The stamp set is Spook-tacular from Our Craft Lounge.  The spiders are covered in black sparkly-fluff. The spider web is clear embossed.  The DP is DCWV photo stack and the card stock is from couture card stock.  I have used ribbon from Michaels and SU dazzling diamonds around the sentiment.  The center ribbon is simply layered paper with cut out and embossed candy corns.  On the DP, I have cut out extra candy corns and made them into embellishments.  Cut them out, cover with versa mark and dip in Ultra thick embossing enamel.  Heat to melt the enamel.  Dip again, reheat and repeat for a total of 5-6 times.  This gives a beautiful, 3-D embellishment to us on your card.  Everything is placed on the card with scor-tape or dimensionals.

Create with TLC

This is a 'just because' post.  I have been visiting a new site for me.  It is called 'Create with TLC'.  They do amazing word art.  They seem to be able to put into words all those things I think but just don't seem to be able to say.  Amazingly, there are daily freebies, sometimes several!  I am posting a card done with one of their word art frames.  So simple, says exactly what I wanted. 
I am sorry that I don't know where I got the center image.  This was the perfect card fro my friend at work who does love her fancy shoes.  (Hers has heels that light up when she walks!)  They just make her 'HAPPY'.  Please visit TLC and check out their offerings, freebies or for sale.  They are really wonderful.

Prairie Fairy

The Prairie Fairy has put out a beautiful free digital image of a fairy with a daisy for the DT call they have ongoing.  Although I am new to this blogging thing, the image is to good not to play with.   Soooo, this is my submission.
The image is from Prairie Fairy, the moon and the word are from 'Graphically Speaking' a cricut cartridge.  The ribbon is from Michaels and SU dazzling diamonds are (ever) present.  :)  The background paper is from my scrap basket.  All of the coloring is using copics.  Enjoy my card and feel free to click on my blog header to go to my site and look at my other cards.  Also, go visit Prairie Fairy and check out some great stamps and try out for the DT.

Our craft lounge - April challenge

Our Craft Lounge is always in the midst of a monthly challenge.  There are new sketches posted every Friday, winners chosen at the end of each month.  Today is my take on this weeks sketch.
This card uses the image from Dandy Days and the sentiment from Say it Big.  The papers are all from my scrap box.  There is coloring with copics and SU dazzling diamonds.  The card is dark blue and the frame around the image is mirrored cardstock (both are hard to see in the photo).
