This will be my last post as I am leaving the team. I am still on My Besties International Challenge, and Scrapbook Stamp Society.

With having 4 grand kids that are boys, this will be perfect for any of them to give on their birthdays! These monsters are kind of fun!

My Besites International- March- Girls with Big Hats/Hair Pretties

Today starts a new challenge over at My Besties International Challenge. It always is, "Anything Goes", but the theme is Girls with Big Hats/Hair Pretties.
I used this delightful image, IMG802 2. This image happens to come two ways. With or without candy canes in her purse. I chose without the candy canes so I could use it without having to be a Christmas card.
I used the colors red, white, and black which happens to be my favorite color combo in a card. It just looks so classy all together no matter how they are used in a design. You just can't go wrong with these colors in my opinion. :)
Anyway, I hope to see you there!
Hugs, and happy crafting!

This is my reminder that My Besties International Challenge is still going on. It runs until the 27th!
The theme is, "Baby It's Cold Outside" if you would like to use the theme. It always is Anything Goes otherwise.
This little cutie is IMG773. I wanted to make sure I make more versatile cards this year so I can send them to anyone. I ran into the problem at Christmas wanting to send a Christmas card to my hubby's nephew and found pretty much all my cards were to girly. So the plan is to find more images I can use to make a card sending it to anyone this year. Good plan! :)
Anyway, I hope to see your lovely work on the challenge!

My Besties International Challenge- "Baby It's Cold Outside"

Happy New Years!!!
Today starts a new challenge at My Besties International. It runs the 1st until the 27 of the month. The challenge is always Anything Goes, but the theme if you wish to do is "Baby It's Cold Outside".
I used IMG182 on this card. I just loved her little winter hat and had to make a card using her! I had already seen this image done up it leopard print, and pink and black. I asked my daughter what colors she thought to use. She said snow leopard, so that's how this card was formed.
Hope to see your wonderful creations!
Hugs, and happy crafting!
