613 Avenue Create - Challenge #56 "Anything Goes"


I have lost track of my days!  This week has been full of crazy deadlines and trying to meet everyone else's schedule!  The challenge at 613 Avenue C this week was Anything Goes w/the optional twist of doing a gift set.  I had the pleasure of using a lovely digi from Kenny K - "Simone" - to make a card and gift bag set.  I was told by a wise young lady (Cassie) to always create 2 of each project, so I'll always have 1 as a reference.  Well, I haven't quite mastered that concept, but I'm getting there.

I decided to do 2 versions of the gift set (same color scheme), so I could use one for my DT assignment and the other for the blog hop at VSDSS (previous post).

Here's my DT entry.  TFL.

The Wiz Relay - Challenge #1

Hello there!

Most people make resolutions at the beginning of each new year.  According to Webster's Dictionary, a resolution is the act of finding an answer or solution to a conflict, problem, etc.  I choose to make declarations, instead of resolutions.  LOL.  So, I declared that I would participate in more challenges this year, and get my name "out there".  With that said, I am dropping off a quick card I did for the Wiz Relay challenge on Scraps of Color - Robert Jackson Digi Group.  We had to use the "Tin Man" image created by Robert Jackson, along with either metal or silver embellishments, OTHER THAN glitter!  Darn it!  (I'm a Stickles fanatic!)  Let's ease on down... ease on down... LOL.  TFL.

Image provide by Robert Jackson, colored with Copic Markers
Foil and patterned paper by DCWV
Silver hearts and buttons painted using Liquid Pearls

Thanks for visiting my blog.  I can't wait to see what's coming for the next phase of this challenge.

VSDSS Altered Gift Bag and January Blog Hop

Greetings Family, Friends and Faithful Followers,

The Village at Stampin' Dymonz Scrap Shack (VSDSS) is hosting its first blog of 2014; and yours truly has decided to participate.  This blog hop will actually carry on throughout the year, alternating months and themes.  I'm not a regular "hopper" or participant, so this is fairly new territory for me.  Nonetheless, the first hop challenge was to alter a gift bag, and create a matching card, for any occasion.  Here's my entry:

The patterned paper is from my stash
The blue trim is from Diva Cee as one of my goodies in a 6x6 paper swap
The glitter card is from a DCWV Card box
Digi stamp is "Simone" from Kenny K
