Challenge Entry for Latinas en America!

Hello there my fellow Scrap-Loving-Blog-Buddies...
Getting ready to close up shop as the weekend concludes, and will be waiting anxiously until I can get back to crafting next weekend!  Secretly wishing for some more "Snow Days" just so I can stay home and craft!  Anywhoo, I was quite productive these last two days, and was able to complete a project for the Latinas En America challenge (Reto #55.)  This week's challenge was to incorporate an image wearing WHITE clothes.  I knew immediately which image I wanted to use, one of my favorites from Kenny K... and here it is:
I further challenged myself to use older papers from my stash, and to make my own flowers! The paper stack is a Six By Six by My Mind's Eye called Dwell.  I believe it came out in 2011, and it has been sitting in my room since! Definitely time to break that baby out! For the flowers I used about 5 different flower punches & 2 different leaf punches.

Well my friends, that's all for now! If you get a chance, hop on over to the Latina en America blog and think about joining the challenge...this week's winner will get FIVE Kenny K digis!!! And WHO doesn't love Kenny!?!?!  Have a great day!

Graphicat Challenge #20

Hello Blog Buddies!!

Glad to be back in action! And what a great way to get started... another awesome Sketch Challenge from our awesome Cheri Cat!!!  She's releasing a new set of digital sentiments for Valentine's Day, and if you know Cheri, you'll agree that we probably should just call them "Anti-Valentine's Day" sentiments! So if you're tired of the same ole - same ole, mushy, gushy stuff, and you're looking to head in a different direction this year... you'll wanna check these out Graphicat Designs!

Here's one of the new sentiments in action...

Isn't it a great sketch? Cheri's just so good at this!  
For this card, I turned the sketch on it's side.
Here's the original Sketch for Challenge #20...

Hope you all join us for this round, 
'cause everyone that participates in this challenge will get a free digi!
So make sure you hop on over to the Challenge Blog for all the deets...

Oh and in case you're wondering about that kick-ass image I found 
to match Cheri's senti so perfectly...
It's a pre-colored image from KennyK.  She's called "Lady Raven."  
I kept the card really simple so that the sketch and digitals could shine through.  
I did however, amp up the shine with a healthy dose of 
Lindy's Stamp Gang Glitz Spritz in Scintillating Sliver.

Well my friends, thanks for stopping by.  I hope you'll have a minute to let me know what you think, love hearing from you guys! And don't forget to give it a shot and get that free digi!

Big Scrappy Hugs!
