One Card – Two Challenges & I won again….

2009 October 4

 Happy Sunday!  This will be a quick post, am in the middle of putting the 1st coat of paint on the craft room walls.  And wouldn’t you  know it,  I have to run get more paint .

In my attempt to participate in challenges, I’ve managed to create 1 card which I can submit in 2 different challenges.  Hey, I’m learning…..

I’m submitting this card for The Sweet Spot challenge SSS24 which was a sketch and in the Stamp By Step challenge which called for Spooky Circles.

The cute little cupcake ghost is from Taylored Expressions and was her debut set I believe.  It was really neat to see Taylor’s store take off since I was lucky enough to meet her at summer CHA last year.  Daisy from eclectic Paperie, invited me as a guest and I got to room with Daisy, Joy – co-owner of eclectic Paperie and Taylor.  That was the best birthday present ever…thanks again Daisy!!!!!

Ok, cupcake was colored with Copics and then I used the copic multiliner to outline.  Why?  Cuz I really soaked the cardstock playing with different copic colors and it bled a little.  I then used Crystal Effects (Stampin’ Up) over the image.  I really liked how the Crystal Effect made the colors more vibrant.   I let it dry before using my circle nesties to cut out the image adhered it to a scalloped circle (again, nesties).  The papers are from Bo Bunny’s Back to Backs Mango Luau Lime.    The Trick or Treat sentiment is from my Walmart Rub-On pack (ya know, the one I’ve been using in an effort to use it all up, lol) and the brads are from Stampin’ Up!.

Here’s a close up: 

I’m off to get more paint and then … onward with that painting, lol!  Hope everyone had a great week.   ooooohhhh guess what……  yesterday morning while drinking my coffee I checked my RSS feeds and clicked over on Tami Mayberry’s blog – A Walk on the Mild Side and about choked on my coffee.  I was one of the winners.   Yup, me….. how cool is that.  Look what I won…..

I wasn’t even sure if that MICKI was me, lol.  It is…..   I’m soooooo excited.  I think though Tami got that I was excited in my email to her, lol.  Thank you Tami!!!!!

Off to the store…… make sure to check back tomorrow for the new Digital-Ink challenge….don’t forget about the blog hop (see the right sidebar on top).

Until tomorrow….

    And, I’m super excited you got to play with the SSS24 Sketch Challenge…your Halloween card is super cute and I can see that icing ‘drooling’ off the cupcake, lol….you did a super job. And a ‘2 for the price of 1’ is always a good thing!
