Friends With Flair and Halloween at Paper Maniac

This weeks theme over at Paper maniac is Halloween such a fun Holiday. As you know or have seen I don't make many Halloween cards but with all the terrific products coming out just for this holiday it's hard not join in on the fun. If you can believe this one it is the first time I have used imaginise products. The Dp is Lollipop Lizzy and the sentiment and Haunted House are also from imaginisce. Is this not the neatest ribbon ever it's called Spider Web orange and it's from May Arts. The Good news you can get all of these fun products at Paper Maniac. Patti Has just added a whole bunch of new product this week for all of your Holiday needs and even better she just added a new category for Kids Crafts. I know this is so dangerous.

So onto my friends with flair card this cute image is I think from Unity KOTM anyways I know it's from Unity. I must have way to many Unity Stamps if I can't remeber what kit it belongs to. I colored this cute image with Copics. Now if you are wanting to give these markers a try and don't know where to start Paper Maniac is going to start a monthly Copic Club which I think is great and it's going to be at a reasonable price each month so your not going to feel to bad spending the money on these markers so it's worth checking out . The Dp is from American Crafts which I thought went perfect with this image and the bright colors. Then of course I had to add ribbon and that it for this card. Just an FYI there is also going to be a tutorial on coloring with Prismas over at Paper Maniac on Satuday. TFL!!!

Thank You Berry Much

Do you you have trouble figuring out what your style is? Or am I the only person who cannot define mine? Seriously I look at my work and it seems like it is all over the place.I would love to here what your style is!! Ok so don't mind me just rambling. So once again I was enabled which is usually on a daily basis which means I spend way to much time on this computer. So back to the card I was enabled by friend Kelly Landers who designs for Whimsie Doodles she always has such great cards with these digital images. I signed up for the Whimsie Doodles newsletter and got this great free image and just think it's the cutest. I think I am going to have to get myself some more because they have such a great selection and the design team does a fabulous job showing these images off. Anyways I did this card for the sketch that they have over at their blog so of course I just had to give it a go. The Dp is from K and Company.

Sweet Sketch 16

This week over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday we are being sponsored by Dustin Pike and oh does he make some great images it was so hard to choose what to work with. Seriously this whole Digital world is something I never saw myself doing it has made me think outside of the box and I just love it!!!
I had to use this sweet monkey and cupcake since there is such a craze for cupcakes. The Dp is from K and Company and the sentiment is a stampin up rubon. I know I need alot more practice coloring with Copics but I love them and now I see why alot of us are crazy for them I just wish they weren't so darn expensive.

I just love this Witch on her broom. My husband always jokes around with our kids that our broom is my car of course they are to young to understand what that means. For this card I used DCWV stack form last year that of course I never used the story of my life. Maybe since I love challenges so much lately I should challenge my self to use more of my crafting stuff and boy is there alot of it. The Happy Halloween I just punched out of the DP. Make sure to check out the other fabulous DT I think most of us are doing two cards this week for double the inspiration. We would love for you to play along to win some of these great images!!!

Dp-Jillibean Soup Thin Zucchini
Ribbon-Solid Grosgrain creme, Twine

To color in the Carts on the Ferris Wheel I actually used the Bic Mark its because the have the finer tip and alot easier to color in the small areas. One last thing since we are speaking of ribbon Paper Maniac has all of it's ribbon on Sale at great price no Coupon Code Needed!!!
