This week Sketch Saturday has a great sketch.It was a fun one to partcipate in.Won't ya try??
Here's the sketch and my take on it!

Isn't that so sweet.This little fella is from Stampendous as is the sentiment on the inside of the card.The sentiment "Bite Me" just cracks me up! It came from Kraftin' Kimmie. That fabo spider web and drippy goo punch is from MS.I cannot remember who the PP is by.

The little spider hanging and the one on the web is a brad from my stash.
Oh and so is the little bat brad.Nope I still cannot remember the PP.LOL.I was trying. ;)

Another Fall Card

Yes it's another Fall card.I'm afraid I'm gonna squeeze in as many fall cards as I can (time permitting) It's my favorite season!! I love all the great colors it has to offer.The way the leaves change color and be so beautiful. For some,like me,it means back to school. Having 2 teenagers this summer at home gave me a STRONGER love for Fall.LOL.
So onto my card...

Isn't she cute.I wanted to try and give her the fall feel.Cool ,crisp breeze and walking her pooch.I used Kaiser Kraft for the PP.It has slipped my mind what line.This card was pretty simple.Just layers with a few leaves(QK) and sentiment (Stampendous).
Close up..
This is a close up of the glossy on the PP and Spica in her hair.
And the inside.......

Bookmark For Kruz

No challenge ,no sketch.Just  bookmark for Kruz.That's my nephew.
He has started kindergarten this year.Surprisingly,he has really took to it.I know of a few boys who couldn't be bothered with school,so it's exciting to seem him loving it.I bought a couple of books and then made this bookmark.

Of course it gave me an opportunity to play with one of my blog candy stamps.heehee.Isn't this mouse just so adorable.He is from High Hopes.I used adhesive chipboard from QK to create the bookmark .

The PP is from Prima's Jack & Jill.Such an adorable line.My only embellishment on this was a QK apple and some rub-ons for sentiments.

Now for some reason I deleted the back of the bookmark.I really didn't want to take another's a close-up though..
I sure hope he's gonna like it.

Sitting pretty..

I just got these papers from Prima called Fairy Flora and couldn't wait to use them.I thought they suited this little girl,whom I've had for some time. She finally got to see ink! Isn't she so cute just sitting there so pretty. If I could only get my daughter to sit and stay clean it would be a miracle. I'm pretty sure she got that "spill everything on your nice clothes" syndrome from her
So I thought I would use the sketch from Sketch Saturday.I went pretty simple with it,but I like it I think.

Here's the sketch ...try it !!

Patterned Paper: Prima-Fairy Flora
Stamps: My Favorite Things,Amuse
Embellies: Prima butterfly and pearls

Happy Fall Y'all

This sketch is from Friday Sketchers.They have some great sketches to help get you going and great inspiration as well.This is my take on the sketch.

Ooh am I just loving this new paper from Basic Grey.It's called Pyrus.The colors are fabulous for fall. As is this cutie.She's a Belle's and Whistles stamp called "smile" by Elizabeth Bell.
Here's a close up of the sentiment..
Now this sentiment is from the SOTM as is the pumpkins.I stamped the sentiment first then stamped the pumpkins and embossed with clear EP.So the pumpkins kinda stand out. Those cute little stitches are threads from Karen Foster.Fun!!

As hard as it is to believe ,this card took me MANY hours.Nothing was going right.The coloring was not working for me.Paper piecing wasn't gong great either.But after all that work,I'm gonna post it anyway even if it's not quite how I pictured it.

The stamps are from CC Designs and the paper is from Echo Park.This is a new line to Creative Accents and I gotta say I'm lovin' it.Lookin' forward to playing more of their stuff.
I'm also entering this into Mojo Monday Challenge this week.Here's the sketch-

Happy Birthday Tara Blog Hop

Hello Ladies..Welcome to Tara's Surprise Birthday Blog Hop.
If you have arrived from the very talented Eulanda's blog(talk about a tough act to,then your right on track.If you have not and wish to start from the top,here's the order...








Tanya(MEEE...oh wait you're already here!Never mind ,stay and have some coffee?

and Finally.....

Creative Accents(Tara)

I must say ,Tara is one lucky lady to have very talented(heehee) and caring Design Team Members .For those who don't know the story,We all decided to..actually wait I must give credit where credit is due,a good customer/friend/fellow addict, Janet  thought it would be a good idea to all post our Birthday cards for Tara on our blogs on the same day.So Cheri then organized this great blog hopand we all pulled together and created.So check out we've made.This is my card..
I know ....can you believe it ! NO ,yes I repeat, NO Copics.Now Tara very much loves technique so I thought I would just do that.I do know we both love distressing.I think I love Tim more,I mean distress.;)
I stamped this Hero Arts flower with clear embossing powder and then went to town with Distress ink.As I did with the PP as well .Boy - ripping ,stressing,and inking ,Oh my what fun! !

Tara has all kinds of friends and fans ,even the littlest ones :), my daughter Emma made this card for her.

This was an image I was coloring but just wasn't working for me.So "Someone" thought they would make them work for her. If you can see she colored some flowers and a cute little bee saying"bus"(aka Buzz).Here's her inside...

And this cutie came from Marianne..

OK So I hope you have enjoyed all the cards ,but there is still one more hop to make at  Creative Accents!

You're the cream...

Another challenge...yep,it gets better.I did 2,Yeah for me! I combined to challenges into 1 card.Gotta love it when that works.So this week at Stamptacular Sunday the challenge was DISTRESS  .I gotta tell you I distressed everything I could on this card,from paper to flowers to even the pearls ! ! I used Tim's distresser to rough up the edges and of ccourse his distress ink to ink everything!!

The other challenge is from Simon Says Stamp.There 's was to use pearls and lace.Oh which I did,although the lace is paper.But it's lace.Speaking of paper ,the PP is from Webster's Pages.I REALLY love this stuff!!
Oh and the chic girl with the coffee cup is from Whif of Joy.I just love her!!

So Girlie

So the challenge at Lil'Lolita Boutique is GIRLIE.Now how hard could that be for me,especially having 3 girls!! What says girlie more than flowers,bling,glitter and of course pink!!

This cutie is Willow. I have colored her with copics.I used Cosmo Cricket Delovely for PP.

In the background I stamped on Black CS with Hero Arts flourish background.I used Glue Pad and covered it in Glitter Ritz.Hmm using to much Glitter Ritz lately?.LOL

The rest is pretty self explanitory. Ooops I almost forgot...that pretty blue stuff around Willow is Twinklets spritzed with Glimmer Mist. Fun.Although not so much fun trying to glue down,if anyone has good tips on how to keep it from falling off my
