Monday Greetings Challenge - Anything Goes

Hello there crafty peeps,

It's a new week and a new challenge over at the Monday Greetings Challenge at The Outlawz.

This weeks sponsors are:


I chose to use Crafty Sentiments - Lady Bird And Butterflies although it seems as the image is a bit different from the site and I am not sure why it's different. I went with a very CAS card. (CAS- Clean And Simple) as I have a hard time to put a lot of embellishments, and this card I wanted the image to be shown since it's such an adorable one.

For our second sponsor from Creative Hands I chose to use Astronaut Boy. Here I wanted to get a little space feeling so I found a piece of scrap paper with some stars on it that I thought was perfect. It is good to save some scrap paper, you never know when it can come to use again. I save most of my papers when I cut them in pieces just for the fact that you never know when it can come to use.

Until next time,.................................craft on!!!!!!

 Promarker colors I have used:
Crafty Sentiments - Lady Bird and Butterfly

Face/Skin: Sunkissed Pink, Blush, Almond
Hair: Primrose, Buttercup, Canary
Hair accessory: Crimson, Red, Cardinal Red, Poppy

Hello there,

Yes, I know it's not Monday but Thursday. I am a bit late on posting this weeks Monday Greetings Challenge. I thought I had done one in advance, but not the case this time. I have to get started in doing them and put schedule time on them from now on.

Confirmation Card

Hello again,

This weekend is a busy weekend, but why rest when you have full of activities all weekend. The oldest son had a sleep over at school, but he couldn't fall asleep so I had to get him around midnight. Saturday morning rise and shine and get ready for my little man's soccer games, who I am also the coach for. I just had to drive my older son back to school for some more fun with the friends.

Sunday means drive to my niece who lives around 1hr 15 min drive away to attend her Confirmation day. They grow up so fast that I have trouble catching up in their lives. Anyhow, I made a card for her Confirmation so she would remember it and think back that she got it from her auntie. It is so much more fun to give something that you have done yourself and put your heart in.

I never put much on my cards but I am very pleased with how this card turned out even if, for my taste, is a lot of embellishments. Sometimes you needs to get out of your comfort zone and just go go for it and that is what I did this time.

The digital stamp is from  Skogstokiga Digital Stamp and Art and it's called Kors Bibel Ros.

Anyways, I will leave you with my card and until next time .......................... craft on.

 "To the memory of your confirmation"

Here are the colors I used with Promarkers:

Rose: Crimson, Cardinal Red, Ruby, Poppy, Red, Lipstick Red
Stem/Leaf: Pine, Forest Green, Grass, Bright Green, Leaf Green, Apple
Cross: Cool Grey 1-5
String: Cerise, Rose Pink, Baby Pink
Book: Satin, Almond, Sandstone

May the 4th be with you


First off I will tell you that I am not a fan of StarWars, but I thought it was a funny sentiment.
This will not contain a card but something cute.

My cat Missy had 5 gorgeous kittens on May 4th. We got 3 red/orange and 2 black/grey with a little red/orange hints.

Mother and kittens are doing just fine, while I think the father of the kittens feels a bit alone at the moment.

I will leave you with a picture of the cute little furry ones. They are adorable and are currently living in a box in my closet in my room.

I have as you may remembered been selected as being a GDT at the talented KennyK Stamps. Not only did I get the chance to color the monthly freebie but also a little special deal as well.

I got 3 images and one being the freebie, but I wanted to draw them all so therefore I combined them all in one card. The Freshman is this months freebie and Fabby Farah and Ginger Gem is for a special $1 deal.
On this card you will find the Freshman being to the left and Ginger Gem in the middle and Fabby Farah to the right. I think they all turned out great. I don't know if you can tell that Fabby Farah has a sparkly dress on.
