Sentimental Sundays # 139 - TONS OF THANKS - greeting card made with SKdigis

Hello everyone, here is my card for Sentimental Sundays # 139.  This week we have a "Thank You" cards challenge, and I wanted to color this little cute elephant of mine for quite some time, and I did using my Silhouette, for the little piece behind it, I wrap around it 4 different strings of Hemp Jewelry cord I got at Michaels long time ago and barely use it, I think it came out pretty good although I should have embossed the paper before... I know it would have looked much better, but OH WELL!!... next time it will be...lol.  Hope you like it...

Sketchy Friday # 4 - KISS ME - greeting card


SKdigis digital stamp Piggy Holding Lips
Hey there! ... I made this card for the challenge at Sketchy Friday... and I think this is the last of Valentine card I will make this year... lol... I cut all the papers with my Silhouette... it is sooooo easy that way, I am planning to play more often in different challenge blogs.  For now I am DT challenge booked, cause I was just accepted my 4th and last DT I can take.  Will talk about it on Saturday (I think)... I am not allowed to let people know yet...{giggle}...  For this card I did something different, was kind of an experiment and it came out pretty good in the first try.  I embossed a piece of acetate with the Cuttlebug "Love Languaje" embossing folder, and one by one, I colored the inside of the hearts with Sakura gel pens in red and pink, and machine stitched to the card frame.  Doesn't it look cool?  ... now, for the piggy, I used copic markers, and added the white polkadots to the nails to make it look a little bit funky, and how about those green eyes with makeup...lol... I really love how this card came out... Hope you like it to and come join us at Sketchy Friday... see ya!

Sentimental Sundays # 138 - WE BELONG TOGETHER - greeting card made with SKdigis

I am finally able to let everyone know that I made it to Sentimental Sundays design team...YAY! and this is the first card I made as a part of the wonderfully talented design team.  I am not only honored but flattered to be part of it...  and want to thank Nazeema AKA Calypso for taking me in.
OK! for this challenge we have a sponsor and she is...



I received 3 little cute rolls of Washi Tape what?... call me ignorant but I truly I hear about it, but never had interest in it, never "investigate" about it, until now... OH BOY! what a problem... now I want to have it all, it is sooooo nice and easy to use that I am going to start a collection now that I do not have the urge for Cricut cartridges anymore...lol.
That part of the problem was solved with the Silhouette Cameo that I am in love with... :)   So now, if you want to buy new Washi Tape, don't forget to visit Chickydoodle an Etsy store where you can find a huge inventory of Washi Tape... :)

Now onto my Sentimental Sunday Challenge # 138 card.  The theme is "Negative Space"... and you are not going to believe me, but it is the first time I make a card with this technique... I saw some samples on Pinterest and started my card.  I did all the cuts with my Silhouette Cameo and put the card together in a heartbeat.... Truly, it was very easy and fun to make... I will definitely try it again soon...OH! and of course... added a sentiment to honor the challenge even more... Hope you like it...:)

Cardabilities Sketch # 67 - HUGS & KISSES - greeting card made with SKdigis

YEAP! It is Cardabilities time my friends, come on and join us this week.  Karan's sketch is wonderful and very easy to work with.  To make this little cute A2 card I used solid cardstock from CTMH and the patterned paper is Bo-Bunny (got to love it)... I cut the "black doily" with Silhouette and I have a FREE .studio file for you to enjoy (link below).  The digital stamp is one of my SKdigis designs and I colored it with Copic markers and cut around with scissors, pretty good ha?...lol... added the ribbon I had since last year and some pop dots... OH and I almost forgot to mention I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the paper.  Hope you like it...

You can find this digital image and sentiment HERE

Hope you enjoy the file and let me know how much you like it.  Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by.
