Anything Goes at Paper Ala Mode

Hi everyone!  Today's Paper Ala Mode challenge is Anything Goes, and we are being sponsored by Little Claire Designs.  They have some really cute images, and one of the cutest in my opinion is this Daschund that I used on my card.


I know this image will get a lot of use from me!  I hope you will play along with us.  I wish you all a happy Memorial Day weekend!

Paper Ala Mode is Taking Flight

Hi everyone!  Today's Paper Ala Mode challenge is Take Flight - anything that flies or floats in the air.  Even though it's not my team's week I decided to play along with this dragonfly image.


I colored this with colored pencils and then added some glossy accents to the entire dragonfly.  I also added a little glitter here and there.

I've got my usual busy day of errands to run, but I hope to have some play time in my craft room tomorrow.  Enjoy your weekend!

Paper Ala Mode Goes Vintage

Hi everyone.  Today's Paper Ala Mode challenge is vintage.  We are to use an image that is something vintage or give our project an old, antique look.  Our sponsor is QKR Stampede.  I chose this adorable Ragdoll for my card.  I think a rag doll in and of itself would qualify as vintage, but after coloring this on kraft card stock I aged it a bit by brushing on a coat of crackle and then smudging it with Antique Linen ink.  The background was embossed and also rubbed with some of the ink.  I found a little rhyme on the internet  about a favorite doll and printed that out as a sentiment.


The Outlawz group is having some problems with their server and a lot of people are having problems getting in.  I happen to be one of them!  I hope they get the problem fixed soon because I hate not being able to check in to the challenges.

Wishing you all a good weekend.  I have a busy day ahead of me today, but I hope to have lots of time in my craft room tomorrow!

Mother's Day at Paper Ala Mode

This week's challenge at Paper Ala Mode is Mother's Day.  I am not blessed to have my mother with me any more, but I always make a mother's day card for my best friends mom.  This year I'm wishing her a relaxing birthday with this image from our sponsor Digi Stamps 4 Joy.



Happy Mother's Day to all of you!  I will finally be getting to make my trip to see my daughter and beautiful grandson this weekend.  I have been rained out the last two weekends!

Yappy Birthday Shaker

Hi everyone.  When I saw the featured stamper this week was Vicki Parson, I knew I would have to play along.  I have been a fan of her cards for a long time, and she was once a part of Squigglefly.  I know she loves dachshunds, so I cased a shaker card she made that you can see here.


I used an image of a dog and an image of a balloon that I found on the internet and merged them together.
