Scrapbookers Anonymous entry for A-Z challenge. "E"

Whew, I made it! We're on our "E" for our A-Z challenge! Check out the inspiration at Scrapbooker's Anonymous by clicking it in my side-bar. (GREAT INSPIRATION!)
I chose my nephew, EVAN! He enjoys posing for the camera even though he knows he's going to look silly. PS Before I got a digital camera, he always wanted to see what the pic looked like! (LET ME SEE LET ME SEE) It was so disappointing cuz there was nothing there! LOL!
I cut my "E" out with my new Cricut Expression also the flames or grass or whatever... Also I used the neg from my Lattice die from my BigShot (that I couldn't bear to throw away!) I don't know what the design is, I GUESS IT'S EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL! I popped up my "E" with pop dots and printed my pics 2x3. Also I used MDS from SU for my journaling.

Paper Lovin' Gal's #11

Paper Lovin' Gals asked us "what inspires us in this pic?" (beautiful pic by the way)
I see the soft colors of Christmas and Beauty. (hope I captured it!) I'm on a roll! I need to bind a calendar that I made (trying to avoid that but it probably isn't as hard as I think but I have to read the instructions to the binder and I JUST HATE TO READ!)
PS they spelled Christmas wrong.

SUO challenge #34 is about the sentiments "MERRY" "HAPPY" and "EVERYTHING JOYOUS" I made this card for my SIL and my Brother and I think I like it!

Here's the guts to my card! I chose to show it the way because of the beautiful colors!

Here's our inspiration photo for Paper Lovin' Gals. It reminded me of sweet's.

Another tutorial of Digi Darla's digi's

How do you like my ice cube sculpture?! I used 3 digi's on this one. To learn more about how I did this go to digi Darla's Blog.

Cutest little Angel

My Angel is from Digi Darla's. Isn't she cute! I was looking forever for a program to paint my digi's, finally found one by accident and it's completely free. I originally made this card for A La Card Monkey but I see it fits Flutterby also, cuz it's open this week! It's also a good tutorial for Digi Darla's too! We used this sketch for A La Card Monkey.

Christmas cards

I am definitely not a bah humbug. I absolutely LOVE anything Christmas.
Scrapbookers Anonymous has a triple play and I made it a quadruple play by playing in Shirley's bloghop (which I love, by the way!)
I really enjoy seeing everyone's creativity! For scrapbookers Anonymous we had to create a project using glitter, a tag (or more), and it has to be holiday themed.
I made these cards to send out, my rather lrg puppy as Rudolph, Gwen and myself, my cat's peeking out of the packages and my beautiful Grandmother. (She knew I wanted a big male puppy and when my Grandmother passed away, THIS PUPPY SHOWED UP IN MY DRIVEWAY!) He now weighs about 80 lbs. but he's only 7 months old. I did say big but let's not get carried away.LOL! THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS : BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR!
This is the longest easel card I have ever made.
Shirley's bloghop is CHRISTMAS!
I made my card with MDS and my stopper for the easel card, I used glitter (thick CS) and my new Lattice Bigz Diecut from SU. I sure do like my Big Shot.

It's all about Christmas colors at SUO. What colors remind you of Christmas time? Christmas is very colorful but I think the colors that stand out are red & green. I think most people feel the same way! Check out the wonderful inspiration by clicking SUO on my side bar. Remember, it's an SU only challenge blog. I had to play with my Bigz die from SU. On my main card I used MDS.

Thank-you card.

I'm a designer at Digi Darla's! I'm so excited! I LOVE her digis, every time I wish for a certain digi, all of a sudden IT'S THERE and it's awesome.  Check out the challenge (the inspiration is fantastic) While your there "try out for the DT" and enter the Cat's Christmas. THERE'S A TERRIFIC PRIZE!
Here's the link:
Here's what I designed with a tutorial!

I just had to enter again because I've never made a postcard. I also used my digital software from Stampin Up. My stamp is Digi Darla's Kitty Christmas digi, ISN'T IT CUTE!
My friend Karen, the owner of LMCB suggested me and I will be looking forward to working with her again!

Lasting Memories #67

It's all about sentiments on your LO's "Sentimental" journey! I chose a Christmas sentiment because I'm in the Christmas mood!
I had my friend over and it seems like she took 50 million pics! SAM was definitely not COOPERATING! He hated those reindeer antlers. Last year I put them on my cat and this year I have a head big enough to wear them but they can still be shook off! There's 16 stars decorating the front of my house and the biggest is 8ft. (The airplanes think it's a landing strip! LOL!)

Stampin' Sisters in Christ #116

Stampin' Sisters in Christ is inspired by scripture and this week it is:
JOB 13:15"Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him.”

Challenge:  Make a card of praise using music, stamp, or design paper, or just the word "praise."
I chose to post this before I made my card because the colors are so more brilliant before I took a pic with my camera. First I did make a digital card, Click on my sidebar (Stampin' Sisters in Christ) and check out the DT inspiration!

Paper Lovin' Gal's #7

IT'S THANKSGIVING DAY and Paper Lovin' Gals has this beautiful inspiration photo!
Here's my interpretation!
I chose to post it before I made it into a card because I love the colors and they always look better this way before I take a pic with my camera.
Oh, I forgot, it is digital!

Scrapbookers Anonymous "D"

It's all about the "D's" at Scrapbookers Anonymous! We're doing our ABC's and we are on the letter "D". I picked DRILL and I found a perfect Digi at Digi Darla's which I am proud to be on her DT! See I have alot of "D's" (Oh and by the way my name is Denise, so there's another "D"! This drill is so detailed (but all I know is it drills holes) Check out all the other digis at Digi Darla's.
Anyhoo, I water marked a back ground pic in MDS, cut out my drill digis (which are very COOL! I might add) I also made a ruler with MDS (also very COOL!), cut my circle out with my cricut, added a hodgepodge metal label from SU, and I bought these brads that look like screws along time ago and forgot I had them! I used my fastenater that I had to have but didn't know how to use it! (I'm sure everyone has things like that!)

At Lasting Memories, they didn't have just 1 inspiration photo,THEY HAD 3! Couldn't decide so I used all 3. I saw blue and white and snow on the first one.

The second one, I saw the beautiful colors of a sunset and snow.

The 3rd one, I saw Wood, green, outdoorsy, and COLD.
