Corrosive Challenge # 227 - Leave a Little Sparkle

Hello out there!  It's been awhile again since a new post for me.  I just can't seem to find the time to squeeze in Blogging anymore.  Hard to squeeze everything in, and something has to take a back seat, so the blog it is.  
I was glad to be able to play along with the new challenge over at The Corrosive Challenge as one of my favorite companies is the sponsor.  A Day For Daisies images are just so sweet and pretty and whimsical, I just adore them all.  I worked with one that is actually a freebie right now!  Holding Fireflies With Wings is available for the Month of June.  Isn't she so pretty?

She is colored with Copics, then fussy cut and mounted to a circle of black cardstock.  I totally cased this from this blog here:  Lately, since I don't really enter challenges, and don't have the time to search for layouts, I often just google the image I want to use and just case a card I like using that image, especially since I am terrible at coming up with a layout on my own.

I used white colored pencil to create the fireflies, then added some stickles to the centers (that's the challenge this time 'round by the way!  Add some sparkle to your creations, show some glam and glitz!)  Everything else is just from my stash, pretty simple really. 

Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there!

Thanks for stopping by,

Ok, here with a quickie, I really haven't stopped making cards altogether, just don't have a chance to blog them.  Wanted to share this one, made for a co-worker/friend/family member.  He loves to celebrate his bag day, so I had to make a great card.  I have had Brianna Blaster printed out for forever, but always found her a bit daunting to color.  I decided to finally give her a go!
She is colored with Copics, and I added some metal brads, gears, and a clock all from Michaels.  The flower stickers were in my stash, as were the papers.  Overall, I was pretty pleased how she turned out!  And I'm pretty sure the recipient liked it as well.

I will be entering the new "Anything Goes" Challenge over at Kenny K's Krafty Krew.

Happy Friday!!
