Simon Says and other fun stuff

So, I was very happy to get a bit of time to play with some images today. I colored a bunch of them last night and added all types of fun stuff, like liquid applique, flower soft, shimmery flock, glossy accents, etc. It was quite fun. Some of them didn't get any of that stuff, but that's okay. Today, I got the chance to put a couple of the images to use. This card is for two challenges: 1) simon says stamp's recipe challenge. The recipe is quite easy. Thank goodness it does not require actual cooking, because then I might fail!!! LOL. Anyway, the challenge was to make a card using two patterned papers (a solid for matting was also allowed), three types of embellies, and one image. Challenge 2) Mo's Digital Pencil, to use a sketch provided and of course, an image from MDP. I love Mo's work. I think she is so talented and creative. Her images always bring a smile to my face, and this chubby little fairy is no different. I love that Mo shows us that we don't have to be model skinny to be happy and darned cute, too!

If you're interested in giving the challenges a shot, just go to:

I apologize that the links don't want to work yet again. Blogger hates me. Really.

While I was already on a roll, I did another card with Tilda from Magnolia. I colored and cut around Tilda to place her in the autumn scene.

You can get your own autumn scene digi stamp from Guylou's Inimitability store. The link's in my sidebar. She also sells the scene with a cute cowboy or cowgirl in front of the fence, or without any characters at all. This scene has so many possibiities for both Halloween and Thanksgiving cards, as well as general cards for this fall season. Take a peek into her store...Guylou offers a little something for everybody.

And now I am off to do the dishes, or maybe make a card, or perhaps I should take a nap. I'm babysitting the neighbor's kids for a while tonight. They're awesome kids...very well-behaved and fun to be around. They are kids, though, meaning that they have way more energy than I could ever hope to have, so maybe I had better take that nap.....
