Creative Card Crew Challenge Of No Designer Paper, Saturated Canary OKLAHOMA and The Scrapping Center

For this fortnight challenge, I used Saturated Canary's image of Oklahoma.  She was printed out on cardstock from my HP printer and then colored and shaded with copics. As you can see from the above photo, my yellow color accent around Oklahoma was a little on the dark side.  With the amazing colorless blender, I was able to tone down those highlights dramatically! 

This fortnightly challenge is sponsored by Scrapping Center. Go there for your crafting needs of all types of crafts. They have it all!

The prize for this challenge is a $15 gift voucher to Scrapping Center

As many of you know Mari, the owner of The Creative Card Crew Challenge lives in Moore, Oklahoma where tornadoes have cause much devastation.  Krista from Saturated Canary donated the proceeds from the adorable image that I used, OKLAHOMA on the release day for a special price, with the proceeds from that day going to Mari's daughter, who lost her home to the tornado. If you would like the image, it is available at full price in Krista's shop.  The proceeds will no longer go to Mari's daughter, but I hope lots of you buy "Sweet Oklahoma," to support Krista for supporting Mari's family.

Delightful Challenges Banner Challenge
For my Delightful DT banner card I used Wendy's digital images called Little Dumpling & Little Dumpling Accessories.  Little Dumpling was printed out on my HP printer and then colored and  shaded with my copic markers.  I used 2 accessory items, the bow and rattle.  My cardstock is from Canvas Corp and Bazzill.  I used my MS punch for my floral background.  My banners were punched out with my EK Success banner punch.  Ribbon and pearls are from my stash.  What an adorable baby image!

Delightful Challenges Wedding/Anniversary Theme, Dylan and Daisy And Our Sponsor Scrapy Land!

Denise Wedding Callenge
Good Morning!  I can hardly believe that it is Thursday already and time for a new card from Delightful Challenges.   For this wedding themed card, I used the adorable  Wedding Dylan and Daisy image from Wendy's Delightful Collection.  In addition, I chose a sentiment "A day to Remember" from Digital Delights!  My image was printed out on white cardstock on my HP printer and then colored and shaded with copics and distress markers.  I wanted my image to be the center focus so I enlarged my image to fit most of my 5X5 cardstock!  I have a friend who is getting married in July and I thought that this was a perfect image for the couple.  They are both so adventuresome and athletic.  My sparkly flower is from Prima, and ribbons and lace are from my stash.  

We have a new challenge for you this week.

Creative Card Crew Challenge Use Of Metal and two sponsors Pizzazz Aplenty and QKR Stampede

Creative Card Crew Denise Snowman

For my DT card for this fortnight's challenge, I used this adorable snowman image from our sponsor QKR Stampede.  My DT card was colored and shaded with copics and Tim Holtz distressed markers.  My card stock is by Graphic 45.  I have both a metal snowflake brad on my handmade flower as well as a metal heart charm.  Even though it is summer this is such a cute winter card.  Ribbon is by SU and pearls are from my stash.

For this fortnight's challenge where we are delighted to have 2 sponsors!

First up we have Pizzazz Aplenty

They're offering one lucky winner a surprise - don't you just love surprises!  And with so many lovely things in their store, it will be fabulous!

surfin Jimmy
For my Delightful Challenge project, I altered a galvanized bucket.  My bucket was colored with copics.  I then cut out circles of coordinating cardstock, and glued them all over the bucket.  Trim was added.   I printed out a Surfing Jimmy Image & a Sunny Smiles sentiment from the Summer of Smiles Sentiment Set.
I filled up my bucket with lots of goodies for a summer theme.
