Well here I am again combining 2 for 1 again lol. Papertake Weekly Challenge is to make a card for a guy. So since my grandson's birthday is in a few weeks I thought I would make him a card and it is also the sketch for WWP May Sketch. All papers are from the WWP collection. The stamps are from High Hopes and I colored these in with my copic markers and used chalks for the sky and ground.

Well I thought I would get a two 4 one going here, I have so much work to do this weekend so I thought this was the easiest way to get all the challenges done. Sorry !!
This week on Cute Card Thursday the theme was patterned paper. So I used a couple of different patterns on the card and colored the Magnolia images in with my copic markers. Added some eyelets and ribbon and some prima flowers oh and some stickles on Tilda's wings.
Now for the Tilda & CO Challenge Blog it was to use torn paper. So all of my layers except for the card base is torn and I distressed it with some vintage distressed ink. All stamps are Magnolia except the grass is from High Hopes

She really had a great time and got tons of presents but here she is with her puppy she has named it bumble bee but I am sure it will change before long.

The new one is a circle coaster and I distressed it with some vintage ink and then embossed it in the cuttlebug folder. I then took my pink ink and dabbed on top of the raised images. I colored the image in with my copic markers and I also used one of Debbie's name plate die cuts for the wording.

I made this card for Katharina's 3rd sketch over at PaperTake Weekly Challenge. I also tried her coloring tutorial out but I have to say I need losts of practice on this. I am not pleased with the coloring but hopefully with practice I can get it down. I used my flourish die from Quickuts and some prima flowers and stickles.
This weeks theme on Tilda & Co the theme is BEADS. So I made the challenge into my granddaughters birthday card, She will be 5 next week. So since she loves purple like her grandma I made her card in purple. lol I colored my Tilda in with the copic markers and the took some tacky tape and covered the whole stamped image. I then took some micro beads and covered the image. I matted it on purple and then took my circle punch and made some scallops. I took the photo corner punch from SU and done the same thing to it with the taky tape and beads and placed it in the corner. The scalloped circle and birthday greeting is also from SU.I added some brads to the photo and to the center flower. Thanks so much for the challenge !!!!

I finally finished some more samples for Debbie's Die Cuts She has been so patient with me with all the mess with my hand but I am trying my best to get caught up. She has some awesome new dies and one surprise die coming You all will just love this one. Anyway I glued some patterned paper to the door knob die cut and decorated it up with flowers and ribbon and used the little tingla from Magnolia. Make sure you all check out Debbie's Dies you won't be sorry they are so fun to work with.
Since everyone has been so thoughtful asking about my hand I thought I would show you a recent picture of it. It is healing very nicely. My hand is still looking like a snake skin lol but it gets better everyday. I find out the 5th of June when I can use it again but like they told me in the beginning it will be 3- 4 months before full use. But I am so glad it is healing for I can't wait to start using it again the old left hand is getting mighty tired lol
Well I had been coloring some things but patiently waiting for my daughter to come and cut things out for me. So finally I have been putting things together. Here is another example from Debbie's Die Cuts I used her pear die cut and colored it with my colorbox chalks. I then colored my hanglar image that Claudia stamped me. I then used the stickles for the wings
with my copic markers. Aren't they just the cutest pear???
Over on a very good friend of mine's blog Claudia has a challenge going so I just had to try this out. I love Paris so just had to do it lol
I used one of the new Magnolia images and colored it with my copic markers. I then used a tag from Debbie's Die Cuts and stamped my eiffel tower on it. The background stamp and the eiffel tower are stamps from ISC. I also used the SU photo corner punch to add to the right upper corner with paris sayings. Those are from Frantic Stamper.
This weeks theme at Cute Card Thursday was to be vacation or travel so I used the theme travel to my favorite place I always have dreamed to go and used my favortie stamp the Paris Tilda from Magnolia. I used the copic markers to color in Tilda and also used the luggage take from Debbie's Die Cuts I then ran the luggage tag through the cuttlebug embossing folder and then took some perfect medium and put on the raised part and then took my perfect pearls and brushed it on. I also used the eiffel tower from ISC and stamped in the upper right. I used my SU punch to make the scalloped edge and used a white gel pen to make the markings, the patterned paper is also from SU The flowers are from Prima.
We have another beautiful sketch this week on Friday Sketchers Beatrix has done this weeks sketch so I made this card for the challenge. I used the stamped image that Katharina sent me. I used SU DSP and I used the copic markers to color my images in, and used the stickles for the wings. I also used the stamp die cut from Debbie's Die Cuts to mount the hanglar image from.
