Fun~day Friday

I hope everyone who celebrates had a nice Thanksgiving! I had a great time. We hosted an open dinner at church...and I have a ton of leftovers. It was all I could do to get my post ready. I am in that relaxed mode after a large holiday dinner!

So here are the details for this week's challenge: Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo. The challenge starts Friday, November 27th at 12:00 AM (eastern time) and ends Friday, December 4th at 6:00 PM (eastern time). And our theme for this week is Anything Goes! 

I used the Autumn Jar digi for this one. Isn't it a fantastic digi!
I was in a Close to My Heart card class last weekend and made the base for this card. When I saw it I new it would be perfect for this digi! I love taking the CTHM card and layout classes. I find they are really inspirational in getting my projects done. I actually want to color another of these digi's for my Thanksgiving picture from today.

Grateful for Fun~day Friday

I can't believe that next week is Thanksgiving already...yikes! I hope everyone has the opportunity to spend some time with family and special friends next week. I have to admit, I am Grateful that the weather has held out and has been fairly warm :)

So here are the details for this week's challenge: Our sponsors this week are Little Blue Button Stamps and Bugaboo. The challenge starts Friday, November 20th at 12:00 AM (eastern time) and ends Friday, November 27th at 6:00 PM (eastern time). And our theme for this week is Gratitude!
I used the Teacup Fairy digi from LBBS for this one. I decided to do a slightly different take on Gratitude. As opposed to a Thanksgiving Gratitude I thought a simple thank you card to send to someone who does something nice this time of year would be appropriate. The glitter paper is absolutely stunning in person! I bought this paper pack during a Shop Hop. The cover doesn't do it justice but I don't think you want to see each piece of paper posted...lol!

Fun~day Friday!

So here are the details for this week's challenge: Our sponsor this week is A Day for Daisies. The challenge starts Friday, November 13th at 12:00 AM (eastern time) and ends Friday, November 20th at 6:00 PM (eastern time). And our theme for this week is Anything Goes!

I choose Bed Head Sister for this Anything Goes challenge. Isn't she fun...and some mornings I feel this is what my hair looks like...lol!
I decided I had to add her her to my art journal. So after printing out the digi on regular paper I traced the digi onto deli paper I got from Joys of Life Scrapbooking. I started the background at one of the art classes at JOLS by cleaning off my sponges on a blank page and just built it up from there when I was ready to use my page.  The background actually has some nice blues and yellows in it but for some reason I couldn't get it to photograph well. The color in the raised stencils is done with Ken Oliver's Color Burst by adding it to my whipped spackle before putting it over the stencils. I kept the color light but you can really get some beautiful intense color with that.

Fun~day Friday is Sketchy Again!

Happy November everyone! The leaves in Central Jersey really started to fall yesterday. I went out in the back yard and all of a sudden the patio was covered in leaves!
Jo's Scrap Shack
So here are the details for this week's challenge: Our sponsors this week are Little Blue Button Stamps and Di's Digis. The challenge starts Friday, November 6th at 12:00 AM (eastern time) and ends Friday, November 13th at 6:00 PM (eastern time). And our theme for this week is this sketch: 
 And here is what I created using the Vintage Paper Set from LBBS.
This is the first time I've used a set of digital papers...and I love it! I love that I can cut one piece of paper up to use as embellishments and if I want to reprint it to use it again...I can. So all I used was the Vintage Paper Set and two coordinating scraps to create my card. My stamp is from 3Twenty and I don't even remember purchasing the brads I used but found them in my stash.
