Karen's Doodles - OLDIES BUT GOODIES!!!!

This week marks the start of a new, special posting over on Karen's Doodles Blog called Oldies But Goodies! We will be showcasing some of Karen's older images that are sometimes forgotten but still amazing!!! I have SEVERAL of Karen's original images, and I love them as much as the newer ones! They are all incredible!!! So, every Thursday, check the blog - and here - to see some OLDIES but GOODIES!!!! Enjoy!!!

This is Thanksgiving Turkey. I chose him for this week because it is Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend! I LOVE Thanksgiving! I love turkey, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, and getting together with the family! I made the background by stamping some images in More Mustard ink on the cardstock, then I distressed the edges and added some ribbon! It is kind of simple, but I like how it turned out!

Head over to the blog to see what other OLDIES BUT GOODIES the DT members have to show you!!! Thanks for stopping by!

Karen's Doodles Challenge - Halloween!!

This weeks challenge at Karen's Doodles is HALLOWEEN!! Lots of Challenge blogs are doing this theme so it should be fun to see all of the GREAT Halloween cards and projects out there!!!

I have made an accordion book for my niece as a Halloween gift (I don't like giving her candy, so I try to come up with different things each year!). I collected all of her Halloween photos for the past 5 years, and put them in this book. I took these pictures before I had all the photos but you kinda get the idea!!! I also decorated the back of the pages so we can add in the next 5 years of her Halloween costumes!!

This image is called Kitty Cat...isn't it adorable?!?!
Here it is tied closed with an orange & black ribbon.
and the book, opened up.
Head on over to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created to spook you this Halloween!!!! Thanks for stopping by! Have a GREAT week!

The Corrosive Challenge Blog

This weeks challenge at The Corrosive Challenge Blog is to use TURQUOISE, PINK & RED!! Yikes....that was a tough one for Momma always said, NEVER mix red & pink!! LOL It was hard to get that warning out of my head!! LOL

So, here is my creation for this week. Lots of pink, a bit of turquoise and a teeny tiny bit of red (the flowers in her hair and at the top of the bookmark!) The papers are all from my scraps bin, and the sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp set. The red flowers are poinsettias (shhhh, I know its not Christmas!) and the white flowers are new ones I just got called Flora Doodles, by Petaloo. I got them both at Simon Says Stamp! The image is a Hanglar & Stanglar stamp that I just love - you can do so much with her!! Now that I see this, I should have paper pieced her skirt!!! Ahhhh well!!!!

Head on over to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT have created with this cool colour combination!!! I hope you will join us this week!!!
