Monday Greetings Challenge - Animal Antics - Feature an animal on your card/project GCC102416

Hello Crafty Peeps,

I am not sure what have happened here, but I have put in the pictures with no text.

I hope you all are having a wonderful Monday and new start of the week. It's a bit low for me on this day, I am not sure why, maybe lack of sleep or perhaps it's still has to do with my thyroid problem. Anyhow, this weeks Monday Greeting Challenge is to feature an animal on your card/project this week.

This weeks we have two talented sponsors. We have Crafty Sentiment and Decosse's Dynamite Doodles.
I just fell in love with this adorable little bear when I saw it, and I do have a special thing for butterflies.
Since Christmas is coming up soon I figured I would do a card and when I was done I realized that even the sentiment had a animal on it, so I got double up on the first card.

Anyways, until next time ................................ Craft on.

November 7 - Use a Christmas Sentiment
November 14 - Family Gatherings
November 21 - Sparkle & Shine - use bling, glossy accents, pearls, glitter, sequins or anything that sparkles or shines

Monday Greetings Challenge - Use more than 2 layers - GCC101716

Hello my Crafty Peeps,

Wow, I can't believe it is already Monday again. I have gotten more energy after I have visit another Dr and getting a second opinion. Thank God for doing that. Instead off increasing on depressive medicine he ordered me to increase my medicine for my Thyroid. Just the day after I had more energy and more and more has come for each day. Having problems with your thyroid is not an easy thing, but I am glad I went and got a second opinion.

Anyways, lets go on with this weeks challenge. For this week the theme is Use more than 2 layers, here you can really get creative and find your mojo in doing cards that you have been wanting to do. Is it to start with more Christmas card, or Birthday cards?? What ever it is it's a great opportunity to do that this week and enter Monday Greetings at the same time.

This weeks sponsors are: Angies Cards and Digis and also Creative Bug and each of them are having fabulous prices to the winner.
For the Angies Cards and Digis I choose to use: Daisy May Pumpkin Carving and the background paper I used on this card is actually one of my DTs own work. If you want to download her digital paper as a Freebie visit Pat Matins blog and show her some love when you get this lovely paper.
For the Creative Bug I choose to use: Mrs. Sunshine. The latter I chose to use Faber Castell Polychromos pencils for.

I have been wanting to try out real pencil markers as an addition to my Promarker pens. I finally got a really good deal off of Ebay and so I ordered them and have had them in the box for weeks now. I have been scared to even try them on. I wanted to try how they felt to color with since I know a lot of people using them and their work is magnificent. So, I decided that I would try one of the image for this weeks challenge, and I got pretty satisfied on how it turned out when it was done.

I would love to hear what you think of my first time ever coloring with Faber Castell's Polychromos, so please show me some love and let me know your thoughts.

Anyways, I will leave you with this weeks cards that I have done.... and as always........ Craft on!!

 Promarkers I have used:

 Unfortunately I did not write down the colors I used.

Monday Greetings Challenge GCC101016 Anything Christmas

Hello Crafty Peeps,

This weeks challenge is all about Christmas. I can't believe this year has gone by so fast and Christmas is soon around the corner. Come and join in on Monday Greetings Challenges.
Maybe you will be our next winner for this challenge?

I am not even ready for fall season, but I guess it will be here anyways if I am ready or not. I am a summer girl who loves sunny days and warm weather. Some days I do miss living in Florida and The Sunshine State.

I am still struggling with my lack of energy, and I am going to another Dr next week for a second opinion. They think I am depressed but I think I have problem with my thyroid and need to change my meds for that. I hope this Dr will help me figure out why I am so tired all the time. It feels as I can sleep all day and night around. I am no fun for my kids since I don't have any energy to do things.

This weeks sponsor is the talented Rick St.Dennis with the image called Cocoa and Cookie Santa.
It was a fun image to color and I think I will use this one for my of my Christmas cards, I have yet not started but I guess since this will be the first one I will continue.

Anyways, until next time ..................... craft on!!!

 Upcoming Challenges:
October 17 - More than 2 layers
October 24 - Animal Antics - Feature an animal on your card/project
October 31 - Anything Goes
November 7 - Use a Christmas Sentiment
