hAnglar and Cute Card Thursday....

Good Friday morning all,

I am off work today!! YaHoooooooooooooooooooooooooo!! I have been working on a few crafty things this morning and hope to have all done and post on the weekend. I have a card this morning that I have done for Cute Card Thursday Challenge # 66. I have painted a very cute hAnglar image added a bunch of different brands of papers. I am not one of those people that can just use a paper line on my projects. Half of the fun for me is putting all different papers together. That to me is an art all of it's own. I have used a few prima type flowers and few brads, and boy oh boy did I add buttons. LOL....... That cute little bee and ladybug are both buttons that I have cut the shank off of and then I took my acrylic paints and painted them. :o) They were dull and boring so I spiced them up just a tad. And the tan-ish buttons I added dots to with my paint also. But then that is not anything new for me. I am just a detail kind of freak. I tend to over work the details sometimes. I just can't leave well enough alone. *blush*.....I did add wire to the ladybug for antennas and I did sew the buttons on with my sewing machine. :o)
I am going to challenge myself for the next week or so and try to stay away from pink unless it is called for in a challenge. :o) Pink is one of my favorite colors and I love to make cards with it. I need to use other colors too...... LOL........
Anyway here it is...........


Papers: bazill card stocks, Basic Grey, Cosmo Cricket,Bo Bunny,7gypsies

Stamps: hAnglar

Ink: Memento, watercolors pencils and copic markers to color , Distressed inks to shade all edges

Thank you Vicki from Cuddly cards. Have you been there to see her cute cuddly cards? If not then go look if you have a minute or two.

the rules of this award are that I must thank the person who sent it to me, tell you 7 honest things about myself and pass this award on, so here we go................. 7 honest things about me.......
1. I am a craftaholic I get withdrawal symptoms if I don't get to spend a bit of time each day in my room creating. It is therapy for me. :o)
2.I am a designer purse junkie.
3.I do not like the cold. I would rather be in a 100 degree weather than in the cold.
4.I have a fast break candy bar (by Reese) and a diet coke everyday at lunchtime. In my mind the diet coke off sets the sugar from the bar.. LOL........
5.I don't sleep much these days. I go to bed very wee hours of the morning and get up with the sun. :o(
6.And the worst thing about me is that I am a CLEAN FREAK.. I can't stand a spot of dust, a smudge anywhere. I hate things out of place.
7. Everything I wear has to ALL match. shoes/purse...EVERYTHING :o)

I am going to pass this award on to Riet from the Netherlands...... She ALWAYS leaves me uplifting comments. Thanks RIET... now I want to know more about you. :o)
