Friday Sketcher

Hi peeps, I wanted to show you another card tonight. I have boys sectional tomorrow so I'm not sure what time i will be home, so i am going to share this now. this is the card that i made using the sketch over at Friday sketcher, always a fun one there. I used the adorable little girl that just graced my mailbox the other day. I colored her in with my copic  using for the first time x-press blend it paper. The makers really do blend better, where i noticed a big difference is when you use the blender pen it is so sweet.
the stamp is from mft stamps. The designer paper is from Basic grey. The card stock is from SU.  Well have a wonderful day.... MEG

Sweet Sunday Sketch

Hi peeps, I am a little late in showing you this, but better late than never. Here is my take on the sketch over at the Sweet Sunday Sketch, another great sketch this week. This was a really easy card to put together. Trying to show case the DP here so I left a lot of open space.  The Card stock is SU and the DP is K&Company. Thanks for stopping... MEG

Viva LaVerve Sketch

Hi Peeps, sorry I have been away my youngest son and I went for a consult last wen. for his wisdom teeth, one had just broke threw the surface. He is seventeen,now my two older children have had no problem they haven't even come in. So we go in for a consult and needless to say Friday he had all four pulled at once. He didn't have and easy go of it. The medicine made him sick on top of having his teeth pulled! It has been a long three days!! That's all it been three days lol.
Well I did get a chance to play along this weekend. Here is the card I made with the sketch that Teresa posted over on SCS / Verve challenge. If you Gals are following The thread over there it's funny one of the ladies does not like tilted panels, so the chatter over there is always fun.
For my card I used Early Espresso and Very Vanilla card stock from SU. The Designer Paper is from Memory Box. I used my nesties and for the first time I used a die from MFTstamps. Oh and check out this cool ribbon rose I made, really easy just twisting the ribbon and gluing it down. I'm not quite sure if you can see the image behind the sentiment in the picture, but it is from Watercolor Trio. Thanks for stopping... MEG

SCS Color challenge

 Hi Peeps, today I have 2 cards for a color challenge on SCS. The colors are Cajun Craze,Not Quite Navy and Daffodil Delight. This is my take on those colors. On the card above I used a cute digi and some Designer paper all from SU. Colored him in with copics and called it a morning for him. The card below. I did the night before, let me warn you I think I was half asleep when I made this card. Have you ever had a thought of what a card should look like in your head,then go to make it and it just didn't work? Well that is so of what happened with this one.
The designer paper had all of the colors in it. I think the Cajun Craze just over took the card. It is a really strong color to work with when you pair it with the other two. Well thanks for stopping time to go to work.... MEG

Digi pop up

 hi peeps, today I have a pop up card for you. I have never made one of these, so be kind. Today challenge over at SCS was to make a pop up card. This is my take.
 I used a sweet digi image that I printed on my basic ink jet printer heat set the ink and colored in with my copic makers. The ink seemed to do well,although when I went to antique it I noticed that the ink smeared a little on the top of the tree. So I will have to research that to see how all the digi stampers antique their images.
I must say I did have a little trouble putting the card together. I don't know if I scored the piece wrong, but everything worked out in the long run. Now for the card, CS is Stampin' Up and the Designer paper is Colorbok. Thanks for stopping..... MEG

Viva LaVerve Sketch

Today I started out my Sunday with a great sketch by Amy Sheffer. You can find the Sketch  here Viva La Verve .This is week 2, I look forward to this every week! Thank you girls for the wonderful sketches every week. I hope I don't  have to much going on with this card.I believe this is the most I have done with one. Lets see we have sewing, first time I have done that on a card. Love to on fabric, thought I would give it a shot on paper.Then I have some embossing with a SU folder, then with the ribbon and button and thread. Oh and lets not forget the punch that I used on the sides of the card. I just kept going and going.... the image was so quick to color I had to keep playing. LOL....  Well thanks for stopping. Back up on the roof to shovel the snow. Have a great Sunday! MEG

Sweet Sunday Sketch

Hi all, this is my take on this weeks sketch over at Sweet Sunday Sketch. I have so much fun do these.I am also going to place this card in for the color throw down this is the first time I have participated in it. Two for the price of one, you have to love it.On to the card makings,I wanted to try Black magic I had tried this one other time but wanted to use brown(that was one of the colors the others are so safron bashful blue and kraft)I like the results using the dark brown,but I think the black would have made the colors pop alittle better. All card stock is Stampin' Up. I used a cuttlebug folder embossing. Thanks for taking the time to stop... MEG

Today I want to share with you a card I made for yesterday color challenge over at scs. It was river rock gray and whisper white. I have a fun little card that has a pocket in the inside if you wanted to put a gift card in there, or a special message in side. The card stock is from SU and the dp is from K&Company. I cut out the flower and only put adhesive on one side and a Velcro closer on the other. Hope you like today's card I will see you tomorrow..... MEG
