Bring on the Winged Things

Welcome to my Blog today:-)
I woke up with some sort of a head cold and am not feeling tip top,
This week over at Cute Card Thursday our challenge is to use anything with wings:-) So go dig out those digital stamps or stamps or whatever else you've come up with:-) and join us. Our Sponsor this week is Heather's Hobby Haven and the prize will be a $10.00 gift certificate to her store woo hoo!

I used a LaLa Land crafts Digital called Angel Marci
I colored her with Copic markers and tried to keep her dress as light as I could so I think I went with BG10 and 11
Supplies I used were from my February Key Ingredients kit from Taylored expressions except small white flowers that were Wild orchid crafts and the bit of Black card stock.
I will have to go see which markers I used and I will post them later, as I am already late with this posting:-)

All That scraps Our Favorite Stamps

Good Morning and Happy Friday to you all:-)
Today we are showcasing a project not a card but a project, accompanied by an All That Scraps Image:-) Please go and see what my fellow teamies have come up with at
I have had this cutie called (Swiss Pixie Violet with a Key), for a bit and feel like I haven't used her enough....Soo I dusted her off and found all these wood bag boxes I had bought last year to make up as Valentine gift holders so yes now I am getting them all decorated and giving them to my friends:-) I have been on a purging spree in the craft room over the last two weeks, I am trying very hard to de clutter and in the meantime have messed my back up so have been in alot of pain!

I cut this little girl out, not my norm but i thought she would look cute with her feet dangling off the scallop Nesties:-)
Here is the box alone with some gold tissue tucked into it that I saved from my Vera Bradley haul hehe
Here was a last minute quickie I added to go inside the box, which I have seen my blog land friend Claudia, over at Pretty Pressings, do with the Magnolia Mini Tilda's so I shrank down one of Januarys Swiss Pixies called Blowing Hearts and popped her into a pretty gold frame I had bought in my LCS, I thought it would be cute for my mom who is in a Nursing home with not much space:-)

Other challenges I am entering this project in are:
7 College kids funds: The use of something in their store which I used swiss Pixies Violet with key and Key & Lock , and red, pink and white colors

Creative Belli Blog: Must have a heart on project which my image has a key heart and there are hearts on her hat, and use a forgotten embellishment, which the bag box has been here for a year or so:-) I am de cluttering and making gifts at the same time:-)

4 Crafty Chicks: Valentines Day/Love theme

Supplies used were:
Images: All that scraps , Violet with Key, Blowing hearts , sentiment from Key & Lock
DP: Crate paper : Paper hearts
Copic markers: E11,00,000,23,25,50,42,44,47,R20,C00,1,3, R20,22,00, 35,37,39

DT Monday with Mr Cricut Crazy

Good Day
Yes it's Monday:-) It's also DT Monday with Mr Cricut Crazy, and we are showcasing a new set of stamps called Christ Is My Life, The sentiments are cute and will work with tons of cards you may want to make, I decided to use another Precious Moments coloring page because I was , long ago an avid collector of these images:-)
I went kind of simple with this one as I didn't want to take away from the image or the sentiment, I would have loved to give this card to my BFF but she is up in Heaven, but she was most definitely on my mind when I was creating this for today:-)

I used copics in as light a color as I could do, well do for me...I love the vibrant colors of the Copic's but tried really hard to keep with the precious moments pastels:-0)
Here is what you get in the Christ is my life stamp set.
Thank you so much for looking today, please don't forget to go see my other teamies creations too
