Once again a 3-card-Friday!

This is going to be a long post again - got three cards to show you!!

First up is

Now, it's my SECOND Halloween card ever, lol. The main reason I decided to go with Halloween theme is that Phindy has those breathtakingly cute Halloween cuties and of course I HAD to use one. Look at this card and tell me you have no idea, why! I dare you!

Colouring is done with Copic Markers and Prismacolour pencils. The papers are from OA, ribbon and lace from my stash. Those cool Halloween tickets are from digital set released by Whimsy Stamps yesterday. Made it a breeze to put this card together!!
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
 Simon Says Stamp - inspirational photo
 Stamps R Us (2 weeks, 2 entries) - halloween
Wild Orchid (2 weeks) - ribbons and bows
Craftalicious (2 weeks, 3 entries) - autumn colors
 Stamptacular Sunday - fall colors
 Card Patterns - sketch
By The Cute and Girly - Spooky

The next card is for
We have a lovely and very easy sketch for you to try out with any of Phindy's images. The choice is fabulous so come on, have a go!

I used one of Phindy's newer images called Ta-Da!. Perfect for a standby baby card - I never have one when I need it!!

The colouring is done with Copic markers. The papers are from Cosmo Cricket Togetherness pad (7 Kids College Fund stocks Cosmo Cricket now. Is it wrong to get horribly excited about it??). The flowers are die cut from the same pad, inked and slightly shaped. And some pearls added. The punch I used is a deep edge punch from Martha Stewart.

 I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Sentiments - border punch
Little Red Wagon - make your own embellies
Wee Memories - make your own flower
Pile It On - Cute and Charming
Crazy Challenge - No ribbons or Buttons
Tuesday Throwdown - punch
Creative Card Crew - Bloomin Marvelous

And the last card is for
Our sponsor this week is Sweet and Sassy Stamps who also gave us images to use. I coloured that cute mouse with Copic Markers and stippled the background with Memento inks and the very edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

The papers are once again from the Cosmo Cricket Togetherness pad - I feel an obsession coming on. Other that that it's very simple - just some Dew Drops and my beloved twill ribbon. I'm running short on that - any idea where to get some, girls??
 I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
Mojo Monday - Sketch
Paper Pretties - animal or animal print
Crafty Calendar - Autumn Birthdays
Cupcake Inspiration - photo
Penny's Challenges - Circles

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

Your are one amazing crafter, my dear! I don't know how you do it, card after card, but they are always totally gorgeous, right down to the very last detail. Another perfect batch here. That Phindy's Halloween image is truly adorable and I love the colors and DPs you chose for the chick card. And even the little mouse is fab the way you have him colored. Another rockin' Friday by Annika!

Lori said...

Three amazing cards...OMG you always always amaze! This colouring is ridiculously sick (in the best form of the word), Just totally inspiring each and everyone card. I am totally stealing your faux stitching on the round panel, I cannot sew round for the life of me and usually leave the rounds

Linda Coughlin, the funkie junkie said...

No leaf die? Email me your addy at and I'll cut a bunch out of plain white CS and mail them to you. You can have the fun of dying and scrunching them.

LOL!! Looks like that litle kid is getting carrots and peas! He's so little he won't know any better. :-D
I have to say your chickie card is my favorite but then I'm partial to creatures with feathers. Great job, Annika. Love your coloring!

I hate these cards! lol,only kidding but I think I have used up my huge knowledge of complimentary words over the last few weeks and I don't want you to think I'm getting repetative,you know you're my crafting hero!!Have a great weekend,Julie.x

Tracey said...

Hi Annika, what stunning cards as always: the SFTW card I love the hint of green & the stitching, the baby boy card is gorgeous with the freshness of the yellow & the flowers are fab & the last (but def not least) card is perfect for a celebration & I love the papers you've used. Your colouring as always is perfection!

You were asking about my flower stamp & unfortunately I can't remember where I got it from or what it's called (sorry) but it is by Make Me if that's any help.
