World Card Making Day!!

I joined in the WCMD Challenges at SCS and you can to by clicking on the link! **To be considered in the drawing for a prize for participating in the challenge, all challenge cards must be uploaded no later than Monday night at 11:00 pm EST. This was for today's special festured stamper sherrylc05. She has a Fabulous gallery and I'm glad I got a chance to take a look!! I was inspired by Sherry's card here:;ppuser=77415
This stamp is adorable and is by Rubber Romance. Thanks Pat for sending me a couple of images. I had fun with it!! This is colored with Copics. I used a Cuttlebug for the background, stickles on the cake, nestabilities, a pearl from hero Arts for her earring, the SU scalloped border punch and some awesome ribbon from Michael's.

This is for today's sketch challenge. The image is a little bigger than it should be for the sketch, but I really wanted to use it! The inside reads Happy Halloween Grandma, but next year remember it's bobbing for apples not your teeth!! Haha! It took me forever to make this card! Even though it looks simple the image was really hard to color with my shaky hands and I ended up doing it several times!! I wish it was smaller, so I could have put the Happy Halloween on the outside!! I colored it with my Copics and used some K&Co. Designer Paper for the strips on the side. I forget what the sparkly dots are called, but they are fabulous!! After I photographed this card I realized I forgot to color inside the cup handle, so I took care of that and covered the glass and the bowl with Crystal Effects. I'm trying to decide if I am too chicken to add some black stickles to those little tiny fingernails!!
Cameron made this card for the sketch challenge. He wanted to join in on the fun today and this is what he came up with! Then he quit on me because his Jim gave him a couple more of his presents (Star Wars movies). We were at the LSS a couple of weeks ago and they were making pop-up cards. So he has the woman with the beach ball sitting on a bench and the man standing up googling at her. I was pretty surprised, I'm not sure I could do this!!

Thanks for looking and I will add more as I finish them!! I have another one drying right now, but it still needs something so I'm staring at it for a while. I really wanted to add a ground and sky, but there is no way I can cut all the stuff out for masking today!!

They're all so good! Love your boys card too!

So you have a cuttlebug & nestabilities! Lucky you - I'm thinking of finally breaking down and getting a diecut machine - I'm looking at the Big Shot and trying to decide if I *need* it kwim!

Aww Deb - you do make wonderful cards - I'm glad you've got some mojo back anyway!! Here's hoping it stays a while and you fell able to make more because you're a whizz with the copics!
And how cute of Cam to make one too!

OMGosh, these are great. That ole lady is awesome. I would blow it with the stickles for sure. I can never get them where I want them. That is quite a young stamper you've got there. Love his card!
