Two for One!

Here are two cards! One was made by me, using a Nikki stamp from LCI, and several elements and paper from the Jessica Sprague Christmas Treasures Blog Hop. The paper and coordinating sticker are from Pixel Jam Design, and the elements ( to do list, ribbon, and 2010 card) are from EA Digital Design. The LCI challenge this week was to use ribbon, and I don't think the digital ribbon looks much like ribbon, but I am still happy with the card.

The second card uses a Robyn stamp from LCI, and was made
by my daughter, who was inspired by the LCI Challenge!

I think she did a pretty nice job! Too bad she can't enter the challenge because she's 12!

Exactly one year ago, and about right now in the day, this wonderful dog entered out lives, and captured our hearts! Today we are celebrating Copper's Adoption Day! He is the first dog my children and husband have ever had, and we are all devoted to him! He has enriched our lives, and we are grateful!

I made Top 3!!

How exciting! The day was pretty average, but I just sat down to check out the new LCI challenge for the week, and when I scrolled down to find out who won Last week's challenge, I saw that the card in my last post was in the list of the Top 3! My work has never won anything before, so I am truly excited! I hope Mom will like her birthday card as much as Ladybug Crafts Ink does! So head on over to the Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge Blog, and try this weeks challenge yourself! While you are there, check out the fabulous cards made by the design team, and the other winners of last week's challenge. You will be inspired, I promise!

Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge Blog!

There is still time to do the Ladybug Crafts Ink Blog Hop and Challenge! Here is the card I made to enter into their first ever challenge! The stamp is from LCI, and is one of the new Cupcake Cuties. I used papers from My Mind's Eye, and ribbon from the dollar bin at Target a few years ago. My daughter let me have the chipboard flower from her stash (actually, I stole it, then asked if I could keep it, now that I had embellished it, and attached it to the card!) The button is from Stampin' Up. I used Liquid Glass from Close to My Heart on the cherry, and Icicle Stickles on the frosting, flower, and dots. I also used Dimensional Pearls on the Cutie's shirt, and colored the image with Copics. Dimensional Pearls and Stickles are from Ranger.
