I'm Late I'm Late For a Very Important Challenge Date!!!!!!! It's a New Party at Party Time Tuesday!!!!

It's time to celebrate with a new challenge at Party Time Tuesdays. A wonderful challenge blog where it's always anything goes with up to three (3) entries per week!!!!! Our fabulous sponsor this month is Spectrum Noir 

Spectrum Noir is a range of professional coloring tools. The range includes alcohol markers, blendable colored pencils, inks and marker storage, and is perfect for crafters everywhere.There are a total of 168 alcohol-based, acid-free and fast-drying markers. There are 120 wax-based blendable pencils that are great for using on their own or combined with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. AquaTint inks are intense, concentrated liquid water paints.

For my project, I chose to use Faery Ink Alice and Her Cheshire which Samanth Aquilera had purchased for me for my birthday - as we all know I love Alice in Wonderland as my last few blog posts have reflected!!!!! For my card, I decided to do a cascade story board card which is another favorite of mine lately!!!!

  • K&Co and Recollection Simply Chic for the basis for my card 
  • Alice and Her Cheshire was colored with Whisper Stroke and Spectrum Noir Markers with gel pen accents, was fussy cut around the edges
  • Mad Hatter, Tea Cups, and Drink Me Bottle were cut using Cricut Disney Classics Cartridge
  • Cupcake cut using Cricut Sweet Treats Cartridge and pearl from Miriam's Crafting Supplies

  • sentiments, "a mad tea party", "I'm late I'm late for a very important date" had previously been offered through Create with TLC as a "special" which were cut using 2.5 round punch and chalked around the edges

There's a New Challenge Blog in Town - Are You Ready??????

There's a new challenge blog in town and I'm thrilled to be part of their fabulous Design Team -welcome to Creative Ladybirds Creations first challenge with the theme Anything Goes and with not one but two fabulous sponsors:

Of course for those who know me, I got over zealous and used an image from both sponsors and they're both from Alice in Wonderland - can you imagine that???? LOL!!!!

My first project I wish to share with you today is a page in my journal to help remind me what makes me happy and to smile 

  • background paper is in my "stash" and a piece I just had to have and then comes the question - what to do with it . . . purrfect backdrop for my journal page
  • Dottie Alice in Wonderland was colored using Prisma Colored Pencils, Whisper Strokes, Spectrum Noir with gel pen accents and a tiny little pom pom for bunny tail
  • Cheshire Cat was cut using Cricut Disney Classic Cartridge with Stickles for his teeth
  • sentiment, "take time to do what makes your SOUL HAPPY!" had been a previous freebie from Create with TLC   
  • "SMILE" is from a package of adorable images from K&Co
For my next project, I decided to use Ikes Art Alice and made a gift tag:

  • background paper was from my "stash" and cut two tags using Cricut Plantin Cartridge where one tag was reversed and glued them together to make the tag sturdier and then chalked around the edges
  • Alice was colored using Prisma Colored Pencils, Whisper Strokes and gel pen accents and was mounted on tag with puff-dots
  • sentiment, "A very merry unbirthday to you" had been a previous offer freebie from Create with TLC and lightly colored the cake with colored pencils which was then chalked around the edges and puff-dotted onto the tag
  • ribbon had previously been in a bin from JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts and found its way to my home and was wrapped around the bottom of the tag and then tied into a bow for the top 
  • Bakers Twine was attached at the hole to attach tag to either a bag or package
Now, it's your turn to show me your creations at Creative Ladybirds Creations. I can't wait to see what you will create!!!!!

I thank you for stopping by today and hope you take a moment to leave me some bloggie love as I love to read your thoughts and appreciate each and everyone!!!
