MyGraphico and Tuesday Morning Sketches

Well, we survived the recent flooding and our basement is back to dry concrete again. I hope we don't see another drop of rain for a long, long time!! So, today the MyGraphico DT has partnered up with Tuesday Morning Sketches and we've put together some really cute cards. We were able to use ANY MyGrpaphico image that we wanted and man, it was really hard to decide. I had a birthday last week and I need to do some Thank You cards, so I put this one together. (Killing more than one bird at a time here :) I used the pear from the brand new release at MyG called "Ultra Mod Patterned" and you can find it here. I downloaded it, resized it, then printed it on some orange paper. I added some scrap papers, some rub-ons and a few little orange pearls. Super easy!! So, because of the partnership today, you could win a prize both at MyGraphico AND Tuesday Morning Sketches by participating in the challenge this week. Just use the sketch provided, a MyGraphico image, link up your creation and you could win! MyGraphico has so many really great freebies, so if you don't find one for purchase, just pick up a freebie and come join us. Hope to see you over there! Thanks for stopping by today :)

Here's the sketch we used for this week's challenge:

A little Sunday somethin'

This one is a birthday card for a friend. I used some sweet S.E.I. papers, some ribbon from my stash, a fabric beauty from Loralee Designs, some bling and a sentiment that is computer generated and then cut/embossed with my Nesties. I think she's fab! Thanks for stopping by :)

Autumn at MyGraphico

There is a new challenge today at the MyGrafico Challenge Blog and you're gonna love this one! It's a 1 - 2 - 3 challenge: 1 digital image, 2 designer papers, 3 embellishments. This week the design team is featuring this Autumn Elements set:

I chose to use the scarecrow image and I think he turned out pretty cute. I printed the image, colored it, added some stickles and pop dotted the shirt on the scarecrow. I did this in order to add some rafia underneath. The 2 patterned papers are at the top on down the side. My embellies are a couple of flowers, the stickles and some cording. So, thanks for stopping by and if you'd like to purchase this set, go here. Also, if you would like to participate in our 1-2-3 challenge this week, please come join us! It is highly suggested, but not required that you use a MyGraphico image, but with so many freebies on the website, why not use one of those and join in the fun?! Have a great week!!

"School Kids"

This week's MyGraphico giveaway is the School Kids set. So, the other DT members and I were asked to create a card or project using this set. I chose to make a tag for a lunch bag. Isn't she cute? She is just one of the really cute little images on this set. I colored her with colored pencils and shaded using baby oil. Then, I used my Cricut to cut the tag using Tags, Bags, Boxes and more and popped the little lady up with dimensional dots. So, what do you have to do to win this set? Just create a card or project with a Back To School theme, preferrably using a MyGraphico image and leave a comment with a direct link to your project here.

Pumpkin Boy....

Doodle Palace has just released some fab new fall designs and the DT was asked to create some yumminess using some of these goodies. My card uses the new "Pumpkin Boy" design. Isn't he the cutest?? I've used three different patterned papers, some raffia, a computer generated sentiment and my little pumkin boy digi image. I printed him 3 times - once each on white, orange and green. Then I cut up the little pieces and paper pieced him together. I love this little guy and Doodle Palace has more great Fall images for you to love as well :) Head on over to the Doodle Palace and check out the other DT creations and while you're there, pick yourself up a set or two of these fab images.
