As for me, I just received my November KOM early this week, and OMG I love it. And yes, I'm also waiting for my Ippity stamps too. :) For now, I used 2 of my favorite stamps from the monthly kit.
First card - Unity to the finest! Love, love, LOVE this stamp! So sweet and simple!!!
I used the layout from PCP sketch challenge. I inked the image with dew drop brilliance pearlescent poppy and graphite black.
Second, I cannot pass out these super cute shopping chicas. So, I made a paper bag.

Be creative is the theme this week, and what do you think about this image? The super cute image is created by Natalia, Elizabeth's sister, and it is called thinking of Santa. And it's available now at the Softpencil's Etsy shop among with many others new wonderful images... especially the Christmas images and the new 2010 calendars!
So, I really got out of my comfort zone this week... I went VINTAGE! I covered a mini notebook with Graphic 45 dp, inked all the edge with Tim Holtz ink pad in antique linen and tea dye, cut out a very cool Santa, colored the image with copic marker and spica pens (E00, E40, E55, E70, G29, R29, R37, W2, chocolate, lemon), stardust pen. And I love the little holly and leaves, it's actually an EK Success punch, and I used liquid pearls in ruby red to add some dimension. Hope you like it.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Huh? You see... of course, today is Softpencil Thursday. And OMG, the new images... have you seen them yet? If not, click here! They are soooooo cute! I'm in love with them. Oh yes, the story about 007... For this week's challenge, we have to use this adorable image called Michu is giving gifts away and the decorative element is golden touches. So, I kept thinking GOLDEN FINGERS or maybe chicken fingers. Hmmmm... I'm hungry or maybe I have gone crazy. LOL

So, I have to list five things I like to do and then I have to pass this award on to five people... (oh man, why can't I pass it on to all my friends from blog land)
- when I'm not crafting... I love to play Wii (my favorite game is Rayman, it's hilarious!!! Ok, a few runner-ups: Rockband, Guitar Hero, Mario Kart, and DDR)
- I love traveling... especially trying out different cuisine
- I love watching Food network (it's a channel everything about food)... and I can probably watch it 24-7
- when I'm crafting... I always twirl in my chair... and yes, I do get dizziness, LOL!
- Always trying to figure out, how am I going to find a $$$ tree or win the lottery... if it does happens, I'm going to have a plaza with a Spa, coffee/bistro, craft store (of course!), gym with a day care, and it'll have a computer store or home improvement store for the husbands near by...

It's AiFactory Tuesday and the challenge this week is to use chipboard with the image that we already have. So, I used the digi papers from baby willy which I got free from the November AIF kit club. And the gift is a freebie from Christmas decoration tree, clipart & digital stamp. I added a chipboard heart which is covered with turquoise stickler, and colored the gift with Copic Markers (C1, B62, Y21) and stardust pen.
So, are you up for a challenge? Hop on over to the AiFactory Challenges & Freebies blog!

This is suppose to be for the 4th Challenge. The challenge is to find a picture of a costume or type of dress for a specific period of history and base your card on that.
History lesson? Oh man, you are killing me... I'm a science geek! Well, as I explained to the Amuse gals... Once upon a time, at the world of Kerry's land, she found a picture of this dress....

It's Girls' Night Out... A few good friends and I are going to a local restaurant called Unwined! I heard that the food is really good, and of course wine too. What a perfect combo! So, I decided to ink up my wine and cheese stamp, then match it with the sentiment eat, drink, be merry.
I used the shimmery papers from Amuse, colored the image with Copics (BG000, C1, E44, E51, R59, V99, Y23, V99) & chocolate spica pens. The layout is from Mojo Monday.
Glenda's Random Amusing Challenge #45... to make anything but a card, so I made an ATC.

I hope you like PINK! I sure do. When I recieved this week Softpencil assignment, I was soooo excited, we have to use buttlefly, pink and white digi paper, and pink "hello" tag. They are so pretty. I kept my card simple and very pink. I used the peony spellbinders, the dark pink cs is actually white cs (but sprayed it with sweet pea glimmer mist). I also added a couple flowers (the bottom flower, I painted with Shimmerz in bubblegum). What else... I colored the image with copic markers (ROO, R20, RV00, RV09), Copic spica pen in blossom and pink, and stardust pen.
Oh, I almost forget.... did you see the new Christmas Softpencil stamp? Oh my goodness, they are so cute! Check them out here!

What you need:
My card measures 4"x4", so you will need to cut a piece of card stock 4"x8".
First, measure half way up from the bottom (which is 4") and draw a line horizonally .
Then measure 1/2" from each side.
From the middle "center" line, measure 1" above, 1" below, and 1" below again. (please see below picture), then you can create this box.
Then score only the COLORED horizontal lines (in blue and little 1/2" red lines, NOT the pencil one).
