365 Cards and D2D cards!

Aloha and welcome to another wonderful Wednesday! First up is my sample for this week's 365 Cards challenge which is a color scheme.
I was so happy when I discovered these colors are an almost perfect match for My Mind's Eye "Merry Little Christmas" patterned paper! The only color that's not in there is the brown so I threw that in through the coloring of the bear and the floor. The stamp is Yuki from Sister Stamps...not sure if you can buy it on-line as I get mine at the local Ben Franklin Crafts store. So here's some other challenges for this one:
1. 2 Sisters Challenge Blog - anything goes
2. By The Cute And Girly - Christmas Girls
3. C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - cute
4. Mami Doodles: Digital Stamps - Christmas
5. Speedy the Cat’s Friends Challenge - favorite technique: mine is coloring with copics
6. Paper Pretties - non traditional Christmas colors
7. pile it on - traditional Christmas
8. Really Reasonable Ribbon - CAS Christmas + ribbon
9. Saturday Challenge - Spots and Stripes
10. the sweetest thing... - sketch
11. Totally Gorjuss - Christmas Traditions
12. Wags ‘n Whiskers - Christmas Themed

Next up is my sample for this week's D2D Delightful Inspiration Saturday challenge which is "baby."
I went a little funky on the colors for this one and I think it would be cute for a boy or girl! The image "Bearing Gifts" is really probably supposed to be a birthday image but I think it's perfect for a welcome baby card too! I colored the image with my copics and even used my brand new Copic ABS-1 system to airbrush the background...LOVE IT!! I also blinged the heck out of this one...trying to use up some of those rhinestones I've had around for years (I went through a bling buying phase a few years ago and need to use them up). Here's the other challenges for this one:
1. 4 Crafty Chicks - baby-themed
2. BasicGrey Challenges - mix 'n' match: the patterned papers are from Lime Rickey and Sugar Rush
3. Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge - digital image
4. digital tuesday challenge - cute and cuddly + digi
5. Eat Sleep Stamp - sketch
6. If The Shoe fits... Scrap It! - try something new: using my ABS was brand new!
7. iCopic color challenge - backgrounds
8. OLLCB - bings: ribbon, diecut, sparkle
9. Stamps R Us - bling it on
10. The ABC Challenge - D for Dazzle

Thanks for stopping by and can't wait to see what you come up with!

Hugs Kate xx
ps I have some new candy if you are interested:)


Waking up to see not one but 2 beautiful cards made by you is making for one good start on my Wednesday!

The 365 card is sweetness at it's best! How lucky to have the exact PP colors that Pam picked out. Love the copic coloring.

Your D2D card perfect for a new baby. The bold colors make it such a happy 'welcome baby' card.

Again, your time spent in the copic classes was well spent with gaining new ideas on how to get the best use out of copics and how to spend more money on more gear! LOL!

As always,
Love, SAm aka MOM
