October 13, 2014 - Besties Challenge #21 Bling it up

Happy Monday!!!!  Hope you all had a great week-end and getting ready for the new week.  Well we hope that you will take time to join us in our new My Bestie World DT Challenge.  The theme of the challenge this time is "Bling It Up". Starting today for two weeks, you have the opportunity to enter our BLING IT UP challenge and  possibly win some great prizes.  

 Now....who doesn't like bling???  Well I love bling.  As I keep telling all my friends, the older I get the "gaudier and glitzier" I get.  Now I know those aren't real words, but hey they work for me.  LOL   So get those images and start coloring.  I want to see all  your lovely creations.  

The image I chose for this challenge is called Making Faces Cupcake and you can find her in Sherri Baldy's Etsy shop by clicking HERE

All supplies used were items I had in my stash and I certainly had a lot of "bling".  Even the butterfly had bling.  :-)  I used my distressed inks to color.  

Now don't forget to enter our challenge for a chance to win some great prizes.  You can enter by clicking HERE.  

Thank you all so much for stopping by again and I would love it you would leave comments.  They are all read and truly appreciated.  Until next month.  

Many hugs and blessings,

October 1, 2014 - Anything goes with a Bestie

Good day my friends.  Today is the day for our new My Besties Aussie DT challenge Anything Goes with a Bestie.  I just love this cute image and I decided to once again pull out my Distressed Ink Mini Pads and color her with them.  It has been a few months since using the distressed inks, and once I got into the coloring again I wondered why I stopped.  Well guess I just like to use a multitude of mediums.  :-)  I truly need to get back to my Copics, so you may be seeing something colored with them really soon.

I chose a beautiful image that is available on Create and Craft TV.

Well once again, I colored my image first and then went looking for the papers.  I was surprised at how quickly they all came together and felt pretty good about them.  :-)

I pulled out my Distressed Inks Mini pads and colored the image using a watercolor technique.

Hope you all like the card and once again invite you to join us in our Aussie DT challenge.  You can find the challenge by clicking HERE

Thank you all for stopping by and I hope your weather is as beautiful as it is here in South Carolina, USA.  Our leaves are beginning to turn and oh how I love autumn.

Happy stamping and blessings to all,
