C4E Recipe #8 Technique/Theme recipe

Hi Everyone
Here's to a new weeks Challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity!
This week we are proud to be Sponsored By DeeDees Designs who are offering $10.00 to spend on their wonderful digital Images!
Recipe #8
Make an Easel Card

I used the image called "Lucky Teddy" found Here
I used Stampin Up Ribbon, With DP by My Little Shoebox from the line All a Flutter, and a piece of My Minds Eye Quite Contrary line I had left over from my Card I added yesterday.
I used the loop punch from Martha Stewart in a piece of Yellow DP from Basic Grey, and Bazzill CS for the base which is 5X5. The red flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the yellow is from a bag my friend Janene gave me:-) It very well could be a Prima flower Because Janene Loves Prima! Oh and the leaf punch is a MS also. Copic markers were used to color my image.
Please go over to C4E and see what the other DT members have made and why not try and make an easel card and enter it for a chance to win the $10.00 towards images you may like at Dee Dees. Have a great weekend! I'm off tonight to see a Country band here in the U.S called Rascal Flatts with my DIL and Good friends:-)

extension of Cute Card Thursday Challenge and Kraftin Kimmie Challenge

Hi again,
Ok So because I messed up and didn't use a Kraftin Kimmie stamp on my Cute Card Thursday DT Challenge card, I felt it was only fair to do another card and add it in as an extension of Cute Card Thursday with A Kraftin Kimmie Image:-) and I went and found that Kraftin Kimmies Challenge had a nice sketch to use this weeks so I am adding this to their challenge too:-)
I used the cutie image Little Red Riding Hood found Here Somehow my beautiful background shading doesn't look as nice as in the real pic:-( It is all blended much softer, Oh well..
I used My Minds Eye quite Contrary Jack & Jill DP with Stampin Up CS. I colored her with Copic Markers and added Rhinestones. The circles are cut using Martha Stewart Circle cutter.
That's about it
Thank you so much for coming for a visit

Cute Card Thursday-A sketch by Christine

Hi Everyone!
Today is A new challenge for Cute Card Thursday, It's a sketch by Christine:-) I've added it below for you to see. Our Sponsor for this Challenge is Kraftin Kimmie Stamps:-) OK now
I messed up and really should have used a Kraftin Kimmie stamp so to make things right I have another card that I am adding next to enter in Kraftin Kimmies Challenge so there is an image made with her stamps
This card is made with a Sugar Nellie stamp that I love and since this is my last Card as A Guest Design Team member, I got caught up in not believing February went so fast and that I had an awesome time with the Cute Card Thursday Team:-) Thank you everyone for being so nice to me:-)
Here's the sketch that will be used this week

I used Stampin up Paper and ribbon, colored the image with Copic Markers, used Wild orchid crafts flowers, adding a hint of copic R81 to the tiny baby's breath and stickles on the edges of the flowers. There are stickles on the flowers in my little girls hair too! The scalloped punch is Spellbinders and the circles are cut using a Martha Stewart circle cutter. I accented with flat backed pearls.
Another card is on its way
