Animal Cracker Circus Koala

Here’s a birthday card I had fun with!  The image is Animal Cracker Circus Koala from Imaginisce and the sentiment is from Inkadinkado.  I have created a few birthday cards with images from this series and this is my last one to show.  Circus animals area always fun to color because of the little bits of color added from the clothing. 

The card was created and kept flat so that I could easily mail this one.  The image was colored with the Le Plume Marvy markers which are still fun to use.  Hope you enjoy and have a fab-tabulous weekend!

Animal Cracker Circus Monkey

I want to share a card that I used a wiggling Wobble on. This on uses Imaginisce’s Animal Cracker Circus Monkey and I think the sentiment is from Stamping Up but if it is I haven’t an idea on the stamp set it came from.

The Wobble was used for the monkey but instead of fussy cutting around the edges I used the shape die and made it all Wobble.  It’s still just as fun!!

Animal Cracker Circus Elephant

Moan and groan… I hate feeling miserable.  But I don’t think anyone likes feeling miserable!  One of the disadvantages to living in a different climate than what you grow up in are the unexpected seasonal allergies.  Not everyone has them, I’m sure, but I do. 😦

Anyway, I can still post a project I made a while back and if I fake it long enough then I’m sure to make it.  After all, Moms aren’t allowed to be sick!

The image on this card is Imaginisce Animal Cracker Circus Elephant and was colored with Le Plume alcohol markers.  I hope you like.  😉

Animal Cracker Circus Alligator

Before the wall was removed I had a saying above my craft room door that said “so many toys, so little time.”  It’s true!   But now I need one here that says “so many posts, so little time.”  LOL

So due to lack in time to write and without further adeu. .. Here’s a project I made with   Imaginisce Animal Cracker Circus Alligator by Inkadinkado. 😀

Animal Cracker Circus

I just wanted to share a quick project I did yesterday.  And also to say – don’t forget to check out the bargain bins at your craft store because sometimes a dollar stamp is just perfect for a little fun birthday card!  Here I’ve used one of the Animal Cracker Circus by Imaginisce to create a little girl’s birthday card and for some added fun I’ve added a Wobble!  I’ve also used the Marvy Le Plume alcohol markers.  Check it out…

Wobble spring in action…

It was only *after* I had finished my projects did I remember that I have a coordinating Circus stamp to go along with these.  Shucks!  Well, maybe next time I’ll remember.  LOL

NEWS – Animal Crackers

I’ve been meaning to come in here for a while to get the next blog candy or freebie up but have been thwarted by the time it takes to boot my kids off my computer and work on the graphics!  LOL  But today is Sunday and I’ve proclaimed the computer for myself.  Muah ha ha ha  Which means you get the benefits too as I’ve had plenty of time to get this post put together.  😀

Thanks to all my followers and for all the lovely comments you’ve been leaving.  I’m sure you’re all wondering who is the lucky winner of my forgotten scraps?  So let’s get to it!  Using on the comments, the winner is #2, who is …

Congratulations Leah Ann!!  Email me with your mailing address and I’ll get your loot shipped out to you sometime this week.  😀  Thank you to everyone who participated and I’m sure I’ll have another large loot in the future!

Now onto the next offering.  I have to admit, rather grudgingly, that I am an image collector.  I have so many stamps and digi images that there is no way I’m going to get through using them all.  Last year I went through my stamps and organized everything – it actually took me several month – but my stamp corner is now clean and I feel better about browsing the lot.  However, I found that I have many duplicates and sometimes triplets in that collection!  Just don’t tell my hubby!  LOL  So this is what I’d love to share with ya’ll… FOUR Animal Cracker Circus clear stamps by Imaginisce!

Here’s the regular details and how to participate in this blog candy.  As a huge thank you to my Followers, I’m going to regularly post freebies, blog candies and give-aways right here on this blog!!  I don’t know exactly when the next NEWS will be posted so your time limit will be variable and between posts.  For example, on this offer here, you will have until I randomly post the next offer.  So what do you have to do to take advantage of these offers??  All you have to do is …

May Kiddos Challenge

It’s time for another kiddos challenge at Make it Colourful and you just have to check out what the Junior Colour Addicts did this month! The theme is dots and is sponsored by Little Miss Muffet Stamps – that’s me and I’ve even provided a freebie for all the kids to use!

Here’s what Cassandra has made for you this week:

She paired up The Ivy Swing from Make it Crafty and Butterfly Kisses from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. Coloring was done with Prismacolor Pencils and the dot theme was incorportated in with her background using varoius circle punches.

Here’s what Lydia has made for you this week:

She made a card for her pen pal and was inspired by last month’s circus theme. She used three images from Imaginisce Snag ’em Stamps: Animal Crackers Elephant, Monkey and Koala. They were colored using Primsacolor Pencils and she created her own “dot” embellishment too!

Aren’t those darling? Be sure to head on over to Make it Colourful challenge blog for details on your free image and let your junior enthusiasts come play with us! Creations using a Little Miss Muffet Stamp are also eligable to enter in the Little Miss Muffet Challenges too!

Circus Tent

This week at Make it Colourful the challenge theme is to color bright colors and I couldn’t resist using the new Make it Crafty Carnival images!

The sponsor this week is Whimsy Stamps so I added a few Meljen’s images for a grand parade. I added lots of embellishments too and of course used my favorite paper from last week! The tent banner was first inspired by one of my teamies who came up with a more creative name… that’s just a teaser so head on over to the Make it Colourful challenge blog to see which one. ;D

Here’s the Circus Tent background before it was mounted on the card. The sky was created with the Copic airgun and I used three of the BG colors to spray it (BG11, Bg72 and BG75). The angle of the airflow was a bit awkward and not what I’m used to. Plus I wasn’t able to adjust the airflow with the single can setup so I’ll have to work at my technique.

Did you know? Wilson Alwyn “Snowflake” Bentley (February 9, 1865 – December 23, 1931), born in Jericho, Vermont, United States is one of the first known photographers of snowflakes. He perfected a process of catching flakes on black velvet in such a way that their images could be captured before they either melted or sublimed. Bentley poetically described snowflakes as “tiny miracles of beauty” and snow crystals as “ice flowers.” He captured over 5,000 images of crystals in his lifetime.
