AIF Tuesday AND Freebie!

Are you ready for a challenge?
Join us at the AiFactory Challenge & Freebies Blog! For the week, the DT gals had the honor to work with these cutest kids at AiFactory, meet Alicia and Ivan. Aren't they just adorable? And our challenge was to make a multiple layers (at least 3 layers) project. Since I was on a roll of making pop-up cards... I hope you don't mind another one. I cut out a bunch of buildings at the background, colored different shade of grey, and popped each layer. I also used Tim Holtz distress crackle paint (rock candy) to create a icy surface.
Thanks for stopping by, please visit other AiFactory DT's girls' blog and see their wonderful creations.
Don't forget... World Card Making Day is this Saturday, October 3rd. The AiFactory DT members will be there between 3pm to 4pm. Come by, check us out, and see what we are up to....
Oh... one more thing! Want a freebie, go grab it at the AiFactory Freebie Group!!! It's only free for 24 hours, so hurry! :D

Never be too Pink...


I'm so excited about receiving this cute 80's Anya a few days ago. Got to ink her up! And I'm in the mood for pink, pink, PINK. :) I used the sketch from TGF Farm Fresh Friday. I used the designer papers from Sassafras, I colored her with Copic, I dyed the flower with glimmer mist in sweet pea, and I covered the *big* dew drop with pink Flower Soft.

Hope you like it, and have a wonderful day!

Softpencil thursday!

Say hello to Peter!
Peter and his clothes is a whole set... this set not only comes with Peter and he has four set of outfit, two hats, and 2 pets to choose from. How cool is that? And of couse, it's available at the Softpencil Etsy Shop.
I love this overalls, when I first see this, immediately I thought of blue overalls... but I wanted something different ;) So, GREEN is the color!
The challenge this week is "About you", actually about me... my favorite technique or colors, etc... Well, it was kinda of hard. Since I love flower, glitter, and anything shiny. The flowers and glitter just won't fit with Peter, LOL! So, I used one of my new favorite MS punch and the super cool diamond plate Cuttlebug embossing folder for him.... now, he really looks cool this fall.

Blog you later, have to get ready for my extreme card class tomorrow at the Paper Tree.

Softpencil Thursday

I absolutely adore this sweet little witch from Softpencil. I just can't get enough of her. For this week challenge, the DT gals are to make a treat bag. I wanted to make a non-traditional halloween candy bag. And one of my co-worker's daughter loves pink and purple, I figured this will be perfect for her.

I colored the little witch with copics, and I added a special friend for her... her little kitty Michu (which Michu is belongs to the animal set at the Softpencil Etsy shop).

Hope you like it, and please visit the other DT gals' blogs, their links are located on my sidebar.

Have a wonderful day!
