Magical Monday - Things With Wings

This week over at the Paper Cupcake's Challenge Blog; There's Magic In The Air; which you can find HERE.  Danie May brings us our challenge in which she would like to see us use something with wings on your card/project. It can be something winged in the main image or an embellishment. ie. Fairy, Butterfly, Bird etc.  Just as long as there is something winged in your image or on your card.

I made 2 quick cards and thought these cute little bats would certainly fit the "winged" challenge:

The first one I used the image by Paper Cupcakes "Frightfully Cute" with the "Halloween Tickets" by Paper Cupcakes.  I used my colored pencils to color the image and added some stickles to the image and the paper on the candy corn.   



On the second card I used "Just A Little Corny and the Halloween Tickets" by Paper Cupcakes too. I also used colored pencils on this image and added some stickles on the yellow part of the candy corn.


Kept both cards pretty simple and used the same colors.  Halloween will be upon us before we know it and now I have two cards already made.  I guess I should be working on Christmas ones too!

Tuesday is Avery's 9th birthday.  He has grown up so fast, but if you have children I don't have to tell you about that.  I took these pictures last month when I was messing around with my camera settings and made him pose for me.  Millie decided to jump in and be part of the pictures too.   She doesn't like to be left out I guess.  I just loved these two pictures below; especially the second one. 


HAPPY BIRTHDAY AVERY!  You are such a delightful child.


                                                                                                 
ALSO:   Just as a reminder that Paper Makeup Stamps and Party Time Tuesdays Challenge blogs are co-hosting a hop in honor of Jen Scull, who is battling cancer.  Jen was also a DT member for Paper Cupcakes last year.

I didn't know about the hop until it was too late to join in, so I still purchased the stamp set and made a card in honor of the hop, because I so wanted to be a part of it and support Jennifer. I also sponsored one of the prizes along with many other companies and friends of Jennifers. So you should check it out if you haven't already. The blog hop is already half way through and was scheduled to start at 12:00AM Eastern time on August 29th and will run till 11:59 pm on Tuesday September 4.

You can find the beginning of the hop at Paper Makeup Stamps HERE

All winners will be posted to the Paper Makeup Blog and to Party Time Tuesday Blog on Friday September 7th.

You will see a digi set that was created just for Jen. ALL proceeds of this set will go directly to Jen's family.  Included are 2 images and 3 word art digis. Illustrations by Diem Pascarella, word art arrangement by Katie Cotton. If you would like to purchase the set and help donate to a good cause you can find the stamp set HERE to purchase.

So, won't you hop for a great cause and join us? Here is the card I made using the stamp set:

I thought that this was interesting that the image fit our challenge this week too!

Again, you can find the beginning of the hop at Paper Makeup Stamps HERE

Well, have a great week and stop for stopping by and lurking by.

Nina all your cards today are gorgeous. I love the fabulously fun image, colors and papers of the first two for the Things with Wings Challenge and your using the Jen's Sunshine Set is beautiful. You have colored the fairy so wonderfully and I love your little flower touches and double ribbon combo. You have one very good looking son too! I hope he had a wonderful birthday! xx
