Drained of Color (Post 2 of 2)

It’s the end of the week but time for a new challenge over at the Kraftin’ Kimme Challenge blog and this week’s challenge is to be black and white.  I have to admit this one was a real challenge for me.  I didn’t have a lot of black and white stuff to work with.  I had to go digging in my scrap bin for pile for paper I thought would work.  I was so happy with the stuff I found.


I like the way it turned out considering that I didn’t color it with Copics but with Prismas.  Then added highlights with a Glitter Pen & Smooch Moonlight. 

CHAPTER 31: Fighting for the CROWN

`Why the Lion and the Unicorn, of course,' said the King.
`Fighting for the crown?'

`Yes, to be sure,' said the King: `and the best of the joke is, that it's my crown all the while! Let's run and see them.' And they trotted off, Alice repeating to herself, as she ran, the words of the old song: --

`The Lion and the Unicorn were fighting for the crown:
The Lion beat the Unicorn all round the town.
Some gave them white bread, some gave them brown;
Some gave them plum-cake and drummed them out of town.'

Hey everyone! We have a wonderful challenge today and a prize at stake from The Mad Hatter herself! Jessica will be giving away an {Ippity} prize pack of stamps plus a nice array of 6x6 designer paper to ONE lucky winner this week who is "Crowned" by!

Speaking of crowns, THAT's this week's challenge, brought to you by our very own Twisted Sis Sammi: Use CROWNS and/or MYTHICAL Creatures on your card or creation today! Here's some mystic madness brought to you by our Twisted team:


Have a very regal day in WONDERLAND!

It’s Still Friday

Right?  I’m late, I know.  I’ve been busy putting my kits together for my class tomorrow.  I’m so excited.  It’s in support of breast cancer.  Which is what inspired this challenge.  I don’t have a total card to share but I’m giving you a peek of what I’m sharing on All Things Unity on Sunday because we will be doing something similar.

NeverSm I hope you will take the time to play with us in support of Breast Cancer and then take the time to check out the other Sassy Girlie Girls.

CHAPTER 30: Hey there, Nice Stems... (Post 1 of 2)

Just as Alice said this, she noticed that one of the trees had a door leading right into it. `That's very curious!' she thought. `But everything's curious today. I think I may as well go in at once.' And in she went.

Once more she found herself in the long hall, and close to the little glass table. `Now, I'll manage better this time,' she said to herself, and began by taking the little golden key, and unlocking the door that led into the garden.

Then she went to work nibbling at the mushroom (she had kept a piece of it in her pocked) till she was about a foot high: then she walked down the little passage: and THEN--she found herself at last in the beautiful garden, among the bright flower-beds and the cool fountains..."

Hello out there! It's a lovely day here in Wonderland and we are celebrating the summer with a nature theme today! Well, TREES and FLOWERS and BIRDS to be more exact! (NOTE: And apparently I can’t even read the original challenge because all I saw was that it was a sketch challenge, I know bless my heart).  We scored a GREAT sketch sponsored by PAGEMAPS today that is just perfect for today's theme:
See I just wanted to make up for the fact that I had messed up last week and had neglected my poor Sparkle Creations stamp.  Well, I did give it the attention it deserved this week and even managed to use the sketch.  Just not the elements…ay yiyi.

Going in Circles FFC (Post 2 of 2)

If you are looking for the Kraftin Kimme Post please scroll down.

I have to say when I came up with challenges this month I decided to go a little easy on the group.  I kinda came to the “executive decision”, as my boss puts it, that we needed a break.  Not a formal break but a, well I think you know what I mean.  When I came up with this one I just said Use Circles, Interpret as you like

Now as I was getting ready for this challenge, I was going through some of my stuff I got & did at CKC Charlotte.  And I came across a Make~N~Take I did at the Glimmer Mist booth… it’s covered it circle shapes.  I got a AH-HA moment & decided to work it into my card.

TravelCardOf course I added a few more of my own with a new impression plate I had gotten when I went to CHA.  Plus a few other little extras.

Now I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to see what the other girls did for CIRCLES


Stamps: Unity Stamp Co – Simply Magical (Nov 09)
Ink: Versafine Black, DI Pumice Stone
Paper: PTI Kraft, & I have no idea
Extras: Tim Holtz Key & ribbon my buddy
Kimme sent me, PTI Impression Plate – Sunshine, The rest I don’t know b/c it was the MnT so I’ll just say Glimmer Mist

Fly Me to the Moon Annette

BlueMoonAd1Let me play among the stars.  Now see I think this would be fun.  Now before I go rambling on about how much I used to be into sun, moons & stars.  I used to have my room/bathroom decorated in it.  OOPS, kinda did anyway. 

It just kinda brings me to my card today.  When I went to use the sneak today of Annette, I just pictured her sitting on a moon.  Ya know, swinging.  It kind of reminded me of the old pin up ads.  I LOVE THOSE!!  Actually I just love vintage things.  Antique things.  Old things or however you want to put it.

So without further adieu I introduce to you my version of Annette…

FlyMetotheMoonIsn’t she smoldering?  And I gotta tell you that even the other sentiments Kimmie has work perfectly with the new releases.

Make sure you check out the rest of the sneaks that are going on today by going to the Kraftin Kimmie Stamps blog.

CHAPTER 29: What makes YOU Shine....or SPARKLE?...

`Why, what are YOUR shoes done with?' said the Gryphon. `I mean, what makes them so shiny?'

Alice looked down at them, and considered a little before she gave her answer. `They're done with blacking, I believe.'

`Boots and shoes under the sea,' the Gryphon went on in a deep voice, `are done with a whiting. Now you know.'

`And what are they made of?' Alice asked in a tone of great curiosity.

`Soles and eels, of course,' the Gryphon replied rather impatiently: `any shrimp could have told you that.'

`If I'd been the whiting,' said Alice, whose thoughts were still running on the song, `I'd have said to the porpoise, "Keep back, please: we don't want YOU with us!"'

`They were obliged to have him with them,' the Mock Turtle said: `no wise fish would go anywhere without a porpoise.'

`Wouldn't it really?' said Alice in a tone of great surprise.

Sending Hugs FFC

Hey babes!!  It’s time for a long weekend and I am so ready for it.  I can’t even begin to tell you.  It will feel nice to relax a little.  HMMM, what’s that like right?  hehe. 

I must warn you I am the hostess for this month for the Friday Fun Challenge.  The first I think will be kinda fun.  It’s along the lines of Something Old/Something New.  Use something in you haven’t broken outta the wrapper yet & something that you haven’t used in quite a while.  That way you get the best of both worlds.  Or at least that’s my view on it.

SendingHugsWith all the things I’ve been doing lately between CHA & CKC I had plenty I could break outta wrapper, it was just a matter of choosing what.

I went with a set of stamps from PaperTrey Ink (Friends Til The End) and Ribbon from MFT (gorgeous ribbon that I really would LOVE to get more of!!)
As for the old, I used a stick pin & twine that I’ve had for a while, don’t even get me started on the paper.

I can’t wait to see how the rest of the sassy girls did the Old & New challenge…


Stamp: Friends Til the End
Ink: Lady Bug, Rhubarb Stalk, Tangelo, Desert Sand, Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Summer Sunrise
Extras: MFT Ruffled Ribbon, Twine, Stick Pin
