Simon Says Stamp and Lawn Fawn Challenge

Welcome back to Crafty Time 4U, I am happy to be back sharing with you my entry to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, "anything goes" and for the Simon Says-Lawn Fawn Flickr challenge "using craft cardstock"
I took some pictures while I was creating the card so I have sort of a mini photo tutorial, I hope you'll enjoy this card, all the supplies are listed below.
First, I stamped the whole image on craft cardstock and fuzzy cut the entire image.

Second, to added dimension to the box, by using Tea dye distress ink.   
Third, I stamp the image on Copic friendly cardstock, I only needed the cat, so I just had to made sure I have the whole part with cat, the whole image wasn't nescessary.

Fourth,  I used Copic markers, YR 21, and YR 24 to color my cat.
Then, I carefully fuzzy cut the cat only, and adhered on top of the cat on the box , using Tombow mono multi glue, them I placed my whole piece on the card, using foam adhesive, all of these added more dimension to both the cat, and the box

And here is my finish card!

Critter's "Selfie" For Lawnscaping Challenge 100th Celebration

Welcome back to Crafty Time 4U! Yesterday was a especial day, because our friends at Lawnscaping Challenge are celebration a big milestone; the 100th challenge! Actually these whole two weeks will be special. To congratulating them, I made a card especially for them! 
I do remember the time, that  I participated on the Lawnscaping Challenge for the first time, I was like: OMG! scared actually, because there so many talented people who participate every time, and I thought, that I'd never be noted! I was wrong! (Thankfully)
Any how I wish them the best and I also wanted to thank all of these ladies for putting together these fabulous challenge, every two weeks, I enjoy creating for them!
My inspiration for this card was a famous "selfie" that Ellen DeGeneres took on the Oscar Awards last year!
I made one of these cards last year, I gave it to a friend, and I never publish it on my blog! 
I wished more of my critters would fitted the Polaroid, however, I wanted to put mostly terrestrial critters.   
Here is my card fir this celebration, I hope you'll like it!

MY Favorite Things' First Cards and Challenges

Hey there! my dear friends, readers, and visitors! It's Super Bowl Sunday night as I write this post. We had a massive blizzard here at the Midwest today, so I've been home all day long doing one of the things I like to do the most: crafting! 
I own quite a few Dienamics dies, Ink pads, (which are my favorites) from My Favorite things, but for for some reason I did'd have any of their stamps, last week I ordered a really cute one, (BB Sweet birthday wishes). The other one at the top of my wish list is out of the stock right now, so I have to wait. (BB you have my heart)
I've been a follower of the MFT blog for a long time and finally I decided to entered their challenges: Color Challenge No. 14 and the Sketch Challenge No. 213
Being challenged is one of my favorite ways of crafting, I love the pressure of good challenge, such as time, or colors, that's how I got into blogging (10 Minute Craft Dash).
I had heart broken over my card for the sketch challenge, but I just decided to get over it, and go on with the card! (see my Instagram for details on that LOL)
It took me a long time to make this card (sketch challenge), I tried different colors of mats, and I came with all of that! That is the only stamp with images and sentiments that I own from MFT the other one is a stripped background. So my options were limited. The card for the color challenge was much quicker to make
I hope you like these cards and enjoy them, supplies bellow.
