Happy 3rd Birthday CMC!

Well hello there!  Boy do I have a treat to share with you.  We are celebrating the 3rd birthday of Color Me Creative Classroom!  We've got 4 days of fun for you all and you can check it all out here.


We've got a blog hop to celebrate as well as tons of fun and activities!  Plus, you can get discounts on some of the classes offered at CMC.  Check out all of the details here.  

Now let's get on with the hop.  You should have come from Michele's blog.  If you didn't, you can see the full line up below.  Saturated Canary was kind enough to give us images for the celebration, and for my card I used this totally adorable Pricilla Pie digi.  She's totally cute, right!

 

I printed her onto Cryogen White Cardstock and colored her with my Copics (R85, R83, R81/E11, E00, E000, R20, R21, G40/E29, E25, E21/5, C3, C1, C00/W5, W2, W00/BG10).  The DP is from a MME paper pack that I totally forgot I had.  I just love the pink/black color combo with this image.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the swirls are a cut file from Bird's Cards.  I added some cheesecloth under the image.  I'm really starting to like using that stuff.  The ribbon, button, and sparkly stickers are from my stash.  The tag is from Tim Holtz, and the pretty pink twine was a gift.  I also sponged a bit of Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo ink around the edge of my image.

Don't forget that if you leave a comment on each DT member's blog (thru Tuesday) you will be entered to win (1) of TWO crafty online gift certificates.  Here is the lineup in case you get lost along the way.


I'm your last stop on the hop, so just be sure to head over here to see all of the details and join in the fun!

Ship of Love

Well, hello again!  It's time for another challenge over at Can You Digi It?.  This time we've got a sketch for you. 

Piece of cake, right?  For my card I used Emma & Edward at Sea by LilyPink Designs.


I printed this digi onto Cryogen White Cardstock and colored it with my Copics.  I have to say that I am loving the orange and yellow color combo lately.  Throw in a bit of turquoise and it's perfect.  I used some of my pretty MME papers then ran the bottom panels through my sewing machine.  I used one of my MS punches along one of the panels.  I added the ribbon, button, and twine from my stash.  The sentiment is from the Paper Studio and stamped with my Orange Color Box ink.

You've got plenty of time to enter and play along with us.  Go ahead and give it a go and show us what you've got.

Challenges:

Southern Girls - Button Up

Happy Birthday Sweet 13!
