The Pixie Dust Studio Challenge this week is to use buttons in your project. I chose the gnome with baby image. I colored my image with Copic Markers. I used Crate design paper and PTI cardstock. I added ribbon, a button, twine and dimentionals. I used the sketch challenge at Card Patterns to inspire my card. I also participated in the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge of making a card that is Out of This World. Make sure to check out all of the other DT members for inspiration. I cannot wait to see what you make for the challenge! You would be amazed what a little magic and pixie dust will do!

This week's challenge at MelJens is to make a clean and simple card. I tend to be the direct oppostite of clean and simple. My cards usually have so many layers and embellishments that I can barely fit them into an envelope:) I used MelJens new release image Robot Boy and colored him with Copic Markers. I used DP from Cosmo Cricket and cardstock from PTI.

August is such a busy month. My friend who works at Hallmark says that it is the biggest month for birthdays. My husband and I just celebrated our 19th wedding anniversery yesterday and Sunday will be my birthday. Normal Augusts have my daughter returning to school. However, this year, she started HS on July 18th (year round school). I guess what I am saying is for us August is almost as busy as Christmas time. I bet if you have kids, you feel the same way also. Well, how does all of this tie into card making? I made my new release "Gnome World" card a birthday card. I chose the Gnome Swingingthe new image from the Gnome World release to create my birthday card. I colored my image with Copic Markers. I used Crate DP and PTI cardstock. I added a button and a bow.
These images are perfect for any type of card from birthday to get well. Take a little time for yourself in this busy month to make some cards and get your creative juices flowing. There is nothing better to help with the stress:)
Also, I have an announcement. We have two new Pixies who are joining our team: Cyndi and Melissa! They are extremely talented!
Make sure to take a look at the Pixie Dust Studio Blog and take a look at all the wonderful images in the store. With a little magic and pixie dust anything is possible!
