Absolutely love this image by Nana Vick.  I love vintage/shabby so when I saw that that was an option for the Crafter Digital Art Center Progressive Challenge  I grabbed it.   I think the image speaks for itself so I just printed it on Kaiser Kraft Sweet Nothings Paper.  Colored the bird with Copics, little glitter on the wing.  Heart was distressed with Tim Holtz Broken China and Perfect pearls.  Added ribbon, pearls and good to go.

I participated in a pretty fun challenge over at "Magic in the Air, Paper Cupcakes" (badge to the right) The challenge was to CASE a card from her DT.  I can honestly say this was difficult,  her DT is very talented and I was overwhelmed by the many options.  I chose to CASE  Kathy, "Daffodil Greetings, #3 card.  I loved her sketch and I really like how black really offsets a card, and she used my favorite punch!

My image was "Sending Love by Nina at Paper Cupcakes.  Colored with Prisma, Gamisol for shading.  I used Glossy Accents to make the balloons shine.  I LOVE my flower!!!  Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers cut from Crepe Paper, and a found a balloon bling for the center to match the card.  DP is all from Basic Grey, Life's a Party

Finally.... My cousin got married a month ago,  I'm  late with the card but I think she will love it!
The Bride and Groom is a Die Cut from Archivers, I shadowed the couple with my Copics, C1 and C3.
The DP is from 7 Gypsy's it was plain white so  I distressed the inside with  Hero Arts stamp and Tim Holtz, Pumic Stone and Soot to get a grey background. The embossing folder is Tied Together, from couture Creations.  Silk butterfly is from stash, and the flower is from Prima, but I colored it with Copics, then Glimmer mist to get a silvery/grey color.
Sentiment is from Hero arts, heat embossed on black ribbon.

I have a collection of tea pots and cups,  so when I saw this image by Sandi at The OutLawz I just had to have it!  Its pat of the Creative Freebie Challenge,  beautiful images 2x month.

Colored with Copics, used chalk for shadowing.  My lace border is from die-namics,  Dizzy Border.
I need to thank Stef at Glitterbabe for letting me case her idea,  I love the tea pouring into the cup idea.
My recycled items are: Lace from an old shirt pocket, leaves are from some silk flowers i torn apart, and my red paper is actually a card that I torn the back off of because it matched the Copic color Prawn perfectly.

I remember begging my parents to buy me these lollipops when ever I saw them.  I don't think I really liked to eat them but I LOVED the gorgeous colors.

I love this image, "Sweet Treat Bella" from Inked Treasures,  colored with Copics.  I used Glossy accents on Bella's nose and my lollipop.  My new absolute favorite toy is my new pinwheel die from die-namics, its soooo fun!!!!  DP is from American Crafts.

Recycled items,  Lace is from an old sweater, (Im always pulling clothing apart) tag is cut from a wax paper bag, (the color matched my bear), and MOM was cut with quickuts out of a piece of paper that I colored with my copics, never used and I dug out of my waste basket because it matched the bears dress (My waste basket is clean just loaded with scraps of paper, LOL)
