Happy Monday!

This week's The Pink Elephant Challenge is sponsored by Pixie Dust Studios! One Random winner will receive 3 digis! The challenge this week is to be inspired by this photo:

YUM Cupcakes! :)  I used the color combo from this photo and created this card using Pixie Pearl:

My 5 year old niece also LOVES to color with me, so I printed out the same image for her and this is what she did.. just gave her some extra help with cutting out Pixie Pearl and the rest was all her!

Happy Birthday {Glitter} Girl

My sister asked me to make her a 1st birthday card for a friend's daughter. I pulled out this Amelia stamp that I can't believe that I haven't colored yet!

Happy Birthday Amelia

Couldn't help but to add some sparkle to her and the patterned paper.. what little girl doesn't LOVE a little sparkle?

TPE Challenge: FELT!

It's time for another challenge over at The Pink Elephant! This week we're challenging you to use FELT!

I had these felt border strips that I've been hoarding... waiting for the perfect project to put them on! (They are from Queen & Co. and they are always a vendor and the scrapbook conventions..and only $1!)

Flirty Anya
I followed this wonderful tutorial made by Amy to give Anya some blue highlights in her hair :)

I also made another one after remembering I had some scrap pieces of felt laying around.. and I LOVE that I can cut them with my nestabilities! & I'm entering this in the Anything Goes challenge on the ATS Wednesday challenge.
Hello Pixie Girl
After making my cards I've decided that I *NEED* more felt in my stash!!
