Happy Halloween!!

It's Monday..and that brings us a brand new challenge at Lollipop Crafts...

The sweetest witch ever is from TGF's halloween collection... and I made a slide out treat holder that can hold a single candy bar or what I did was made a little sleeve for inside and put four mini candy bars...

This sweet treat went out to my October Secret Sister (click here if you want to sign up) along with my other halloween card here. I hope she enjoys them! The sentiment is a freebie from The Twinery, MS spider punch, and the gorgeous paper is from my August SS and fellow DT member, Leanne! She is the sweetest and look at the gorgeous card she made...

Now...pop on over to LC blog to see more from the DT... although we don't have a sponsor this week, we hope you can join the FUN!! and a big THANK YOU to Linda for guest designing during the month of October. It was such an inspiration to us all!

Have a safe a Happy Halloween!!!

Pirate Treats...

Hi All! Today on Lollipop Crafts, our weekly sponsor spotlight is on...
The owner, Ashley, shares how it all started...
Inked Treasures is a new digital(digi) stamp website. Right now there are
3 main animal characters that do fun human activities:
Bella-the bear
Ellie-the elephant
Lenny-the lion
I have always loved coloring images for my cards and scrapbook pages and I wanted to create a digi stamp line that has fun stamps with larger open lines. All the Inked Treasures stamps are just begging to be colored, glittered, glossy accented, flocked and more!!

The DT were lucky to have a few of the fun digis to play with, and I chose Pirate Lenny...
Instead of a card, this time I made a treat bag for sweet goodies! I basically followed this tutorial at SCS, but changed up the size and modified it a bit. Turned out a bit bigger than I wanted, but then you can put more sweets...or for the lucky recepient, get more!! ;p

Here's a peek of the inside...  

Be sure to head over to Lollipop Crafts blog to see more inspiration from the team... and there's still time to play along our current challenge for your chance to win 3 digis from Inked Treasures!!

Cards made with luv...

Happy Monday! What did you do this weekend?? We, my kids and I, finished our christmas cards that we are sending off to Kris, where she and her aunty are having a "Make A Child Smile"card drive. I already started with one from my previous post here, then I asked my kids if they wanted to make some with me. So we got busy this weekend and came up with some fun cards...

these were made by my son...

and my daughter made these...
and I made two more...

They really had a great time making them, especially since they got to use my Copics! Not too often does that happen!! LOL! But it was for a good cause...and they want to do more cards! So there is another drive that we will be donating to, and you can find out more here.

Thanks for stopping by! ;D

Holidays are coming...

Good Morning peeps! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend... I had to work, so not as much craft time that I had planned on. But I did get to finish my card for a new challenge this week for Lollipop Crafts... Make a CARD with NO SENTIMENTS ALLOWED!
My card features Cookie Emma from C.C. Designs. She's dressed in her black velvet holiday outfit and having a warm sweet chocolate chip cookie. The color inspiration is from ATS new monthly challenge called Show & Tell with C.C. Designs - black, burnt orange, and tan. This gorgeous paper is from "me&my BIG ideas" line... an old set of paper pad I got a loooong time ago, that has tropical summer papers. But this one kinda just fits into what I wanted... holiday in the tropics!
I wanted to add some more embellies, but this one is going to Kris for her card drive that she is doing with her aunty. YAYYY! I made one...LOL... but I will be making more with my kids! If you would like to help bring a smile to a child's day, click here for more deets.

This week Lollipop Crafts challenge is being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish. Be sure to stop by the LC blog for all the deets and see more inspiration from the team!

Anything is Possible...

Happy Thursday! Wasn't it just Monday yesterday?? hehee... the days are really going by so fast! So hang onto your seats because today on Lollipop Crafts we have our sponsor spotlight on...
Barbara, the owner, shares some info of how it all started...
Little Miss Muffet Stamps was inspired by a house full of Little Miss Muffets and arachnophobes alike. It isn't too difficult to image how I ended up here since I've been drawing and coloring from the moment I picked up a crayon. Now as I sit in my hobby room I get to share my passion with my own Little Miss Muffets who love to work along side of me.
My motto is still "A stamp a day keeps the stress away" and feel free to visit my gallery at for daily inspiration.

There are so many adorable image to chose from, and my card features Monster Love...
He is so adorable and so much fun to color! Kept the layout pretty simple this time...BG Oliver paper, sentiment stamp from Verve, felt flower & buttons from MM, and a little bit of Twine too!
Stop by the LC blog to see more gorgeous samples from Barbara and the Lollipop Girls. There plenty of time to join current challenge... find out all the deets HERE. The prize this week is aa $10 GC from our wonderful sponsor Little Miss Muffet Stamps!
Thanks for stopping by!! ;D

Hello everyone!! Sorry for going MIA, but I've been recovering from health issues, and I'm so glad to be back!! And just in time for Lollipop Crafts new Monday challenge...HALLOWEEN!!!! Create a card/project with anything Halloween related, and you're in!

My card today features TGF's Ian as Hallo Skeleton...

Over at the Farm, the final FFF challenge for the current team is to case any of the DTs. It's was so hard to pick one designer, they are ALL so fabulous!! But I ended up chosing 1LUVNMAMA and her card HERE. Mama's super talent always produces amazing work, just check out her blog! She's become a good blogging friend, and her beautiful projects always inspire me. But mine never comes out quite like hers! LOL!
Thanks to a fab tutorial by Amy Young at Color Me Copics, I TRIED to color Ian's face using the zombie skin technique. But not having the colors that Amy used, I had to improvise and used E00, W1, W3, and BV23. I also added a touch of YG00 along the edge of the mask and skeleton bones to make it look "glow in the dark".  Now that I look at the picture, I should have darkened his suit a bit more. Think I'll do that before I give it away yet to my October's Secret Sister. Can you believe it... I'll be early this month! LOL!!

Sorry for the long post...but it's been a while! hehee! Time to go over to check out more fabulous eye candy from the Lollipop girls, and all the deets on the current challenge. Our wonderful sponsor this week is Meljen's Designs
and they are offering a fabulous prize of their CUTE DIGIS!

Thanks for all the visits while I was out...and for stopping by today!
Have a great day!! ;D
