Make It Crafty

Can you believe all the posts I have lol.  I am on a roll. So decided to show off this cutey I did.

The challenge for the MIC CAS team was to create your own background. So I have these stencils dies and honestly for the life of me, I can not figure out how to use them.  I thought I would give it a try but have to admit I am not loving it but I do love the way the image got colored so figured I would go with it. 

The sentiment is from a stamp set my daughter got me for Mother's Day (yes they get me small crafty presents cause they know me so well).  As always I colored the image with my Copics.

I will be entering this into the MIC CAS challenge

Mo Digital Pencil

I am back again. I was on a roll with trying to get through this paper pad so I continued with this color scheme I used in my previous card.

I saw this awesome technique that one of my favorite coloring bloggers, Rosemary Bridges did with making your own flowers on the shirt. How did I do!!
Went pretty CAS on this one but I thought the image was so nice.
I will be entering this card into the following challenges
Outlawz Challenge-Thursday: Anything Goes

Greeting Farm-Add a Bow

Unfortunate for me I have been sick for the last few days, but I do find that when I can not sleep anymore, I like to just relax and color between my cups of tea and Theraflu. 

So I got a bunch of images done. I recently acquired the Roll Call Retired Kit from someone who as clearing out their stash and wanted to get work on one of these cuties.

I used the sketch from Deconstructed Sketch and decided to just add a small bow to her hair as I am not really one to use bows on my cards.  Hope you like her and see all of again soon.

Will be adding this to a few challenges:

Farm Fresh Friday-Put a Bow on It
Penny's Paper Crafty-Anything Goes
Wonderful Wednesday-Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesday-Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown-Anything Goes

So if you have not heard, one of the newest craze is Pocket Letters. It is basically creating 9 ATC size cards, placing them in a 9 folio trading card holder and then in each one adding crafty goodies and a letter to your Pocket Letter Pal. 
I decided to give one a try and here it is
I used the stamp from Crafty Sentiments called-I Love Flowersr. I then used a variety of paper scraps I had from my stash (a few different companies here) and embellished each one. This technique also helps use up so many scraps. The type of goodies I have behind each ATC are brads, twine, small flowers, pearls, some die cuts.
This one is actually being mailed to my pocket letter pal today so I hope she likes it.
I will also be entering this one into a few challenges:
