PIP Challenge 2049

Challenge 2049

Hope everyone is prepping for CHRISTmas!
T'is the season for sure. No snow in WI yet.
I'm ok with that but I usually like a white 
Christmas. Yes, I'm crazy but I leave for 
Florida, God willing, in Jan. so a white holiday
is just fine with me. hehe This week's sponsor is 
Beccy's Place
Be sure to pop over and see all the 
fabulous digis that they have!  
Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
Yep, another card for LJ. He really loves them
and after a day of him dragging them all over
it's put away, beat up and loved. lol. This is
a pull card with a cute tractor from 
Beccy's Place I colored it with Copics. To 
make it sturdy, I ran the image through
my Xyron and attached it to some thin 
cardboard and fussy cut it out. I cut a slot
into my farm scene (printed off internet)
and added the mounting tape to make a 
channel for my ribbon (around the slot)
and raise it up. I used a white ribbon and 
colored it to match with a Copic marker.
I attached the tractor to the ribbon with a 
double layer of the mounting tape. 
Just pull and watch it go!

PIP Challenge 2048

PIP will be sponsoring this week's challenge 

(Animals as a THEME) 
by offering a $5 gift code from Mo's Digital Pencil 
Here's my card for this challenge:

View the action
This was a simple card. My favorite kind!
I made it for my 16 month old grandson.
I've been making him cards lately. He just 
loves to carry them around and sometimes
he just sits and looks at them. Fun. 
The image, from Mo's, was colored with
Copics and fussy cut. I went online and
searched for "cartoon rooms" and came
up with the one I saved and printed out
for my background. I added a spring "tool"
to the back of my image and attached it.
The little springs are Action Wobbles
from Art Impressions. 

Stay healthy and safe and enjoy 
virtual hugs!!

SheepSki Designs is offering the 
random winner THREE DIGIS!!

This week I didn't have an image to use
because I knew that I was going to be
preoccupied with my grandson, LJ. He
had a lump on his lip removed, suppose to
be a cyst, but was a mass. We awaited
results of the biopsy, which, thank God, 
was negative!!!! YAY! But the trips
to doctor at Children's Hospital (2 hr. ride)
took up much of my time. LJ also fell 2x
right on his lip. Bleeding but no extra
damage!! YAY, God! It's been a long
couple of weeks but he's healing nicely!
WHEW!!!

Newton's Nook
Be sure to pop over and see all the 
fabulous digis and wonderful die cuts they have!  
Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
I always have fun with Newton's Nook
The tractor was Farming Fun stamps 
and Dies from NN. I bought them to 
make cards for my little 16 month 
old grandson who loves tractors! He 
carries cards like books. He's a honey.
 Not sure about the farmer and chickens...
the embossed, in black, silhouette is from 
Sweet n Sassy. I sponged some blue ink 
for the sky. Embossed the silhouette. 
Added some green card stock. I used 
Copics to color everything.
I raised up the farmer and one chicken. 
Then some layers and that's it.

Bugaboo

fabulous digis they have!  I can always

Here's my card!
This cute little ant is from the
Picnic Ants 01 set. It is a fun set!! Leave
it to Bugaboo to help create great cards!
I colored my image with Spectrum Noir
and Copic markers. I found an apple 
sentiment online. I changed it a little from
the actual sentiment though. It made me 
smile. Naturally some perfect background
paper was all I needed to finish my card.

Challenge 2043
 I want to thank
our amazing sponsor, Star Stampz!!

Be sure to pop over and check out all the 
fabulous digis they have!  In fact, g
check them out now!
Here's my card 
Such a sweet image from StarStampz
I printed the image twice. One I cut out 
to use for a mask, the other I 
colored with Copic markers. I masked
the kitten and girl and sprayed an olive colored
walnut ink. I dashed dots around the edge.
Then added my layers. I embellished a tiny
heart by the kitty and used sparkle pen for
the heart on the shirt. 
I embossed the 
sentiment (Newton's Nook) on a black banner.
Mounting tape was used to raise it up.

Challenge 2041
This week's sponsor is 
Newton's Nook
Be sure to pop over and see all the 
fabulous digis and wonderful die cuts they have!  
Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
This was a very simple card that seems like
much more. I colored my images with Copics
and die cut them out. The Newton's Nook 
stamp set is "Paw-Tumn Newton" and the
dies are here. Then it was a matter of 
choosing the right cardstocks. I did raise up
the center panel and double raised the
triangle section. Added dimension is always
good. That's it! Hope you like it!
