My last challenge card for SCRS

Hello my Friends!

Today’s challenge at Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps blog is my favorite kind of a challenge – sketch challenge. It is also my last card for Karber DT… Six months went by so fast, and I enjoyed every minute of it. I was so lucky to be in the most amazing group of people! Thank you Sparkle and all talented DT girls! I also would like to thank you Stephanie for being the BEST DT Coordinator. She really makes life in the team so easy and so well organized.

I could of stay for another term… But I couldn’t take this oppurtunity at this moment. My husband is looking for a different job right now, it means we may will move. We will see….

Okay, back to the challenge and fun sketch. I played with Witch Millie for this layout. I also added a piece of cheesecloth (tried to give an illusion of spider web).

Would you like to join us for this week’s challenge? Please, visit SCRS blog for more inspiration. And don’t forget if you use SCRS stamp you could win a free stamp!

Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your comments!

Happy smiles and hugs to all of you,

My favorite song from childhood

Hello My Friends! Today we have a very interesting challenge at Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps challenge blog – card inspired by your favorite song.

Lately I miss my home so much… and my childhood especially. Time when you don’t need to worry and think about tomorrow. Anyway all these sentimental thoughts reminded me about a song that we were singing for Mother’s Day in Russia.

Я пеку, пеку, пеку
Деткам всем по пирожку
А для милой мамочки
Испеку два пряничка
Кушай, кушай мамочка
Вкусные два пряничка
Я ребяток позову
Пирожками угощу.

The idea of this song is that I bake some little pies for all the kids and for my sweet Mom I will bake some ginger breads. I tried it to translate it word by word but it sounded so weired. Sorry about this…

As you can see I chose Sweet Treats Emily stamps which is perfect for this song from my childhood. I loved making this card; it brought to me so many wonderful memories. :)

For the layout of the card I followed Card Patterns sketch. SCRS store is sponsoring Card Patterns sketch #133 this week! Another chance for you to win some stamps from the Sparkle Creations store.

Our challenge is open to all players. Each week a random winner will be chosen. In order to qualify for a prize, you must use a Sparkle Creations image on your creation. Most importantly, have fun! We can’t wait to see your creations!

 Are you ready to play along? To play along in our challenge, please upload a photo of your project to the SCRS gallery.If you haven’t registered yet, it just takes a few seconds to create a login and upload your photo. Deadline for this week’s challenge is Sunday, September 25th @ 9 PM PST.

Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your comments. Wishing you all a wonderful day,

Case the DT Challenge at Sparkle Creations

Hello!

Another Tuesday, another challenge at SCRS blog. I can’t believe we hit number 60 already. This week’s challenge is very interesting – it’s free style for DT, and case the DT for participants. Sounds like lots of fun!

I inked up cute Fairy Millie and… I embossed the image using white embossing powder, then I sponged inside the circle die-cut with some chalk inks I had in stash. I wanted to try this technique for so long… And I finally made it! :)

Would you like to play with us this Tuesday? Just visit SCRS blog and get inky! You will find so much inspiration here, really did you see what our wonderful DT created for you?

I will be back tomorrow with a card that I made for my co-worker. Thank you so much for taking your time and stopping by. Thank you for leaving your comments.

Have a beautiful day my friends,

Elena
