It's Saturday... Some Challenges!

Happy Day after Christmas ;)
Hope y'all survived the day of festivities! I know some of you are probably still going at it throughout the weekend! but everyone here is completly exhausted and we're taking the today (Saturday) to do nothing, lol - which technically means to do everything, since we have a million toys to rip out of boxes, put together and pry open battery comparments ;)  Wish us luck!

Ok, so I have 2 cards to share with you and the challenges that helped!

Here's Sassy Studio Designs 2nd to last challenge of the year!!!
This week's Dare to be Sassy Thursday is a Christmas Color Challenge...

Red and Green

I also used...
Cupcake Craft Challenges 71 - A Time for Celbration
Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge 28 - Last minute Christmas cards
Stamp Somethings - Holiday Somethings Challenge
and it is loosely based but definitely inspired by Mojo Monday's Sketch 118.

Xmas Tree Card Details:
Paper(s): Me & My Big Ideas DP; Bazzill CS and Papertrey Ink CS
Stamp(s): Sassy Studio Designs Digital Image
Ink(s): Copic Markers; Copic Atyou Spica Glitter Markers
Accessories: The Robin's Nest Dew Drops; Making Memories Ribbon; Bo Bunny Flowers; Nestablilities.

For my next card, I used one of my most fave images from InStyle Stamps - Snowman Chick...
I also used these challenges...
BasicGrey Challenges Week 10 Color Combo - Cream, Pink, Blue (and for some odd reason I thought that green was included, lol!)
Digital Tuesday Challenge 38 - Let it snow!
and The Pink Elephant Sketch Challenge #46.

Snowman Chick Card Details:
Paper(s): BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses DP; Papertrey Ink Kraft CS; Bazzill CS

Stamp(s): InStyle Stamps Snowman Chick Digital Image
Ink(s): Copic Markers; Copic Atyou Spica Clear Glitter Marker

Hi Margie! Just leaving a quick message on peeps blogs... I am so very excited to be on the Praire Fairy DT with you :D I read somewhere on your blog that Sara is your sister? How cool is that? My sister doesn't enjoy crafts - as a matter of fact, I'm the only one in my family who LOVES all things crafty!

Well, I've enjoyed a peek around your blog. You have some amazing things here - bravo!!!

Come visit me sometime Here

Love and big hugs ~ Lori

hey Margie, I am currently locked out of the label tulip forums since I suggested that everyone file with the better business bureau about Jen and also file a complaint with credit card companies and paypal.
anyways. I know Christina and Amy have resigned so, I guess Jennifer is the only one around. I hope you get things resolved soon and I really hope you file a report with the Better business bureau. She needs to stop treating her customers so horribly.

Randi said...
