Archiver's Crop, Night Three

***Warning - Picture Heavy Post***

Hey y'all!  Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend.  As you might have noticed, there was no post for Archiver's Crop Night Two.  Turns out I went out with my hubby right after the crop last night, so you get two days worth of work in one post.  Woo hoo!  =D

First, I have a card for the CDAC Progressive Challenge challenge 14.

This adorable image is from A Day for Daisies. Isn't it great? I just love all of the stuffed animals.  It reminds me of when I was little and had a room FULL of stuffies.  It turns out I must have had babies on the brain this past weekend.  A third of the cards I made were either congrats for pregnancy or welcome baby. LOL 

CDAC Progressive Challenge: Round 14

This next card was created with an image from an artist I just found: Mayzy Art.  I saw this image over on my blogging buddy Trina's blog, and thought it was just awesome!  I had to get it immediately.  Trina did a better job coloring the image, but she rocks like that. =D

The front sentiment is from Create with TLC, and the inside sentiment is from Digi Doodle Shop. 


There's Magic in the Air: Less is More

My next project was inspired by this fortnight's Digistamps 4 Joy challenge: Blue Water.  There's a deal going on in the Digistamps 4 Joy CDAC group that if you are a member of the group (or join), create a card for the current Blue Water challenge, link it up on the challenge blog, then link it to the group discussion you will get a free image!  It's a brand new image...I haven't even seen it yet.  I can't wait to see!  =D

It was made with a Digistamps 4 Joy image, one of my favorites actually.  I just love the fairies!  I really like playing with blue, so this challenge is a blast for me.  I hope y'all will play along!  The sentiment is from my head.  I think. I tried forever to find a good water quote, but couldn't really find anything.  I decided to go with this encouragement sentiment.

Now, this next card is one of my favorites from the weekend.  Sassy Studio Designs is having a DT call.  I just LOVE their images, so I decided to apply.  I'm really hoping it works out...wish me luck!

The image is (of course) from Sassy Studio Designs.  The flower was made with Paper Blossom punches.  I wish you could see the card in real life...the sparkle is just thrilling!  I can't wait until someone gets pregnant, hopefully with a girl, so I can give it to them!  =D

Paper Sundaes: Spring Blossoms
Scrap-Creations: Flowers
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge: Handmade Flowers
Pixie Dust Studio: Your Favorite Things (The color pink, Fiolex Girls font, lace, lily made with Paper Blossoms punch)
Sweet Sketch Wednesday: Sketch

My final card was created for my grandma's birthday in August.

The image is from Sassy Studio Designs.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it.  My grandma is a huge Wonder Woman fan, so she's going to flip.  I got to use one of my favorite fonts (SF Comic Strip Shaded), so that's always fun.  I'm really thrilled with how this card turned out.  It took forever to make; the stars on the blue paper were originally a faded yellow/white.  I wanted it to match WW's pants, so I colored every star with a white unibal pen.  It took AGES, but was well worth it!  =D

Whew!  Ok, well that's finally it!  I am so happy I was able to go to this weekend crop.  We had a blast and got a lot done.  Now I'm ready for sleep and to recharge my creativity.  =D  Thanks so much for sticking around to the end of the post and we'll be seeing you soon!
