Penny's Challenge #536

 Well I blew it.  This post was to be published yesterday.  I completely forgot about it.  Oh well.  Better late than never.  This is also the last post of 2022 for Penny's Challenge.  So let's take a look at the sponsors and my creations.

Prize~2 Single images of the winners choice




Prize~Voucher for 3 sets

These two sponsors are fairly new to me.  They both offer exceptional images that are crisp and clean that print like a dream.  Please go and show some love gang!!!

Now on to my projects.  I do need to explain some coloring mistakes.  Still healing from Carpal Tunnel Surgery (i have a check-up in Feb. 2023).  So my hand does not color very well.  It gets tired quickly and stops and starts kinda screw up my coloring mojo.  So bear with me everyone.

I have colored and created two projects using images from Last Minute Manda.  The first is called You warm my heart #1.  The second project uses another image from Last Minute Manda called You Warm My Heart #3.  Here we go.


For this project I colored using Shuttle Art Alcohol Markers.
Much easier on my hand.  I used some glitter paper for the
whipped cream and the marshmellows.  I printed out the saying
on vellum.  The card base is American Crafts and the backing
paper is from the thrift store.


The inside has a Vellum printed Merry Christmas and you can
see the backing paper much better.


The back.



Here is my second project.  Still using the alcohol markers.
The saying again printed on Vellum.  Backing paper is a very
old DCWV big book of Christmas and Winter 2010.



And finally the back.

I want to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and a very Happy New Year.  Thank you all for your comments throughout the year.  See you again on January 4, 2023.  Until then,

Stay Healthy, Stay Safe and know you are blessed!

Challenge #535 at Penny's Challenge!

 Hi everyone!  I am healing nicely from my surgery and I constantly over do it.  So I am paying for it by still overworking my hand and typing.  These duties must be completed!  (don't get me wrong, i love my design teams i am on). So here are the sponsors...

Prize~3 digi images of the winners choice


Jan's Digi Stamps Shop

Prize~$6 Store voucher

These 2 sponsors are excellent.  Love both designers.  Each have a unique design style to their digital stamp images.  Please go show some love everyone!

On to my project.  I am working with an image from Jan's Digi Stamps called Christmas Skates.  Here is what I designed.

This is a quick and easy card to make for Christmas or 
maybe a winter holiday.  I used red embossed card for the base.
Dug through my plastic containers (Costco) for my Christmas
paper and found this.  Love it.  An olive green back and white
ornaments.  I cut out the colored skates with my Silver Bullet
and stuck it on the front.


I added a layer of gray cardstock.  Then for the final touch 
printed out the sentiment provided with the digital image.


That's it for this fortnight.  I want to wish everyone a very happy Thanksgiving holiday.  I'll be back on
Dec. 7, 2022 with another creation. 

Until then...
Stay Safe, Stay Healthy and know you are blessed.

Penny's Challenge # 534 Anything Goes Using Paper

 What a whirlwind!  I had Carpal Tunnel surgery on October 25th.  The surgery went perfectly.  (btw i want a quart of whatever it was that put me out.  best nap i've had in a long time)  The not using my right hand was very hard.  But I got the stitches out Monday Nov. 7th.  I do have to be careful with the incision.  The doctor said I should be back to normal in 2-3 months.  Thank you all for the prayers and blessings, they really helped!  Now let's see who our sponsors are:


Prize~3 Digital images of the winners choice





Prize~2 Digital images of the winners choice

I love these two sponsors.  Crisp clean digital images to create with and a variety of subjects.  Please everyone go show some love.

Now on to my project.   For this challenge I am representing Crafty Sentiments Designs image called Christmas Penguin.  Here is what I designed...


Well it's almost time for the count down to
Christmas signs.  But not quite yet.  Here is the 
envelope and I used a little star that says  
especially for you.  The envelope is green 
recollections.

The front of my card is using some elements of a Crafters
Companion kit called Contemporary Christmas.  I really like
this kit.  I have been using bits and pieces for various projects.
The background and the Merry Christmas bell are both from
the kit.  I also used pine tree dies and cloud dies.  The cloud
dies turned into the lake.  I paper pieced the hat and colored
the rest with Shuttle Art Alcohol Markers.  The I added silver
glitter to the floating ice in the blue and purple lake.

The inside has more of the trees and a couple of clouds that
are snow.  The medallion and Merry Christmas banner are
from the Contempory Christmas Kit.


Well that is what I dreamed up for this creation.  If you have questions just contact me.  Thank you so much for visiting!

Stay Safe, Stay Healthy and know you are blessed!
