A Productive Weekend!

Happy Monday Friends! I hope that you had a wonderful long weekend. Things have been so busy C*R*A*Z*Y here lately...we just finished cleaning up the yard from all of the storm damage, I have cleaned our home from top to bottom, I am up to my eyeballs with work from my graduate class, and I made oodles of cards for my principal! Throw in some Christmas shopping and a lot of family time and that about sums up my weekend. I also managed to squeeze in some stamping time for myself too.

My first card is for the sketch from the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club. You can find all of the details here. I used this cupcake lovin' cutie from the MFT Pure Innocence Hello, Cupcake set. The sentiment is from the Pure Innocence Birthday Princess set. All of the papers are from My Mind's Eye. Copic Markers (E000, E00, E01, E23, E25, R11, R37, R39, R81, R83, R85, Y21, and Y26) were used to color up my image. I also used the Die-namics Simply Scallops die, the Die-namics File Tab die, and the Die-namics Tag You're It die. My other accents include some mini pearls, some machine stitching, and some craft twine.

My other card is for this week's "Food Fight" Challenge from The Cat's Pajamas! Susan Liles is the Hostess for the Mostess this week, and she didn't really want us to start throwing food around (although, after today's lunch duty at school, I'm not so!) She really wanted us to use any TCP stamps with food, and as a bonus...use the Icing CutUps. I've had this cute little guy from the Like You a Latte set in my stash for awhile now. I decided it was time to ink him up. I'm going to say that the food is the soup in his cup...wink wink! He is colored up with Copic Markers (E000, E00, E01, E23, E25, and R11) and paper pieced with My Mind's Eye papers. All of the patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye. My accents include a couple of buttons, the Icing CutUps, and the Seeing Spots embossing folder. I also used the November Sketch For You To Try from Jen Del Muro.

That's about all for tonight. Thanks so much for visiting with me...Toodles! :D
