 It’s time for a new challenge over at Seize the Birthday!

and our optional topping this time is Mono- Yellow,

which just means your entire card must exude yellow!

I got this cool candle die cut by Elizabeth craft designs about a month ago and

had this card in mind and it was all I could do not to use it before now! 

Love those candles…aren’t they so cool?

The sentiment is from Close to My Heart.

Now please come on over to Seize the Birthday and join us, and

remember the topping is optional and you don’t have to use it

you can link up anything that is a Birthday theme and your good to go!

See you over there!

Photo Week at JUGS!

IMG_0004

Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 8.23.41 AM

Hi Friends,

Sharyn over at Just Us Girls has this GREAT Summer time photo as inspiration this week!

You wouldn’t believe how many different layers are under some spots on my card,

I couldn’t get this card to come together for whatever reason!

I think it’s the DP I chose.  I wanted to use it because it had fruit on it and

tied in with the photo so perfectly, but I think it was my ultimate demise.

The stamps are a mixture of Stampin Up and Verve.

What do you think of my pin wheels?  

I wanted to make the card mailable and flat.

I am also going to link it up over at Seize the Sketch and

The Pink Elephant where they have a summer theme going on,

at least I got that part right…LOL

Now don’t forget to head on over to Just Us Girls and join us along with

and our Guest Designer this month, Rebekka.

 I hope you will be inspired and want to come and play along.  

If you win Chic of the Week for the month of July, you will be

in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of September.  

See you there and Good Luck!

Just Because…

Hello Friends,

Things have been a little quiet here in blogland due to my BIL passing away unexpectedly.

So, a quick trip to Tennessee and now we are settling in back at home.

My hubby is a trooper and handles things so much better than I.  Love you honey!

It was great to see family, but next time I want it to be for a more happy occasion.

It took me a few days to find my mojo and I finally have something for you that

I am willing to share.  ;)

PLEASE READ to better Explain my Inspiration! :)

The inspiration for my card all started with this great Tag over at

Tag You’re it Challenge!  You may not think by the looks of my card

that that is where it came from but your just going to have to trust me. LOL

I sure don’t expect to win since I really stretched the envelope,

but I sure want to acknowledge this great new and

very cool challenge site that I am really excited about!

Check out this great tag!

TYIC_2

I tried to replicate the transition of colors by scoring my tag and then

inking it up carefully so the scored lines would still show.

Then I heat embossed my leaves to replicate her vellum ones.

My small tags at the top replicate the small tag on Laura’s.

The flowers are from Stampin UP and my sentiment is all Verve!

One of my flowers is also heat embossed on Vellum.

I am also going to enter this over at Curtain Call where they are 

celebrating their 1ST Anniversary with an

Anything Goes challenge along with some fabulous prizes!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by…I so appreciate all your support

in this wonderful hobby of mine!

Take care!

So Sorry You Hurt…

IMG_0002

This card may look very similar to my last card.  I loved the layout and idea so

much and got so much positive feed-back, I thought I would make a similar one.

All stamps used are from Verve Stamps (Leaves, Elegant Flower, and Heartfelt Phrases)

along with some Red mesh ribbon for some added texture.  

The buttons again are from MFT.

The flowers are heat embossed on clear vellum.

I am linking my card up to a few of my favorite Challenges that I stalk on

a regular basis…even if I run out of time to play along.  

There are way to many great stamping sites out there…and not enough time! :)

Wouldn’t you agree?

The Card Concept,

My card today is Clean and Layering…or maybe just a lot of layering. LOL

 Verves Red, White and You challenge!

I decided to use Teal (Bermuda Bay) just like Julee’s beautiful inspiration card.

DIH_July2014

And the Mod Squad where my talented friend Sharyn is hosting

and she asked us to add texture to our project!

That is where my Red Mesh Ribbon comes to play.

 I so appreciate you taking the time out of your day to stop by

my blog and I have the above blogs linked up for you… so what are you

waiting for…go and check them out too!

Enjoy,

Praying…

Hello Friends,

Over at Just Us Girls this week it’s Cheryl’s turn and it’s week 2

 (Trend Week) and she has asked us to incorporate

woodgrain in our card and or project.

IMG_0003

Here is an additional view!
IMG_0002

Here are a few card details:

I heat embossed my SU flowers with white embossing powder.

The buttons and flower centers are a die cut from MFT that I adore and

don’t use enough, which will be changing for sure!

My Woodgrain panel is covered up quite a bit

but was stamped with SU- Wisteria Wonder.  I did the

masking technique once again and that is how I got the perfect white border around it.

The leaves were left over from a previous JUGS challenge

of the kissing technique.  I fussy cut them out.

Lots of pop dots and a tag made with my SU tag punch and it’s

embossed as well with a scallop…but you can barely see it.

I am also entering my card over at Colour Me.

However, now that I have read the fine print of their challenge

I may not qualify because I used two shades of Purple on my card

and I don’t believe that is allowed.   It’s all good anyways!

I enjoyed looking at all of the DT’s creations and it

helped inspire me to create mine!  So all in all it’s a Win!

Have a fantastic day and hope to see you over at JUGS!

Another Mini!

I am back! With another mini for Mod Squad!

ModSquadBadge

This one is also Gina K. Designs from the A little Something Set

and the sentiment is from You Make Me Smile.

The card measures 3 1/2  square.

IMG_0008

I had a hard time photographing this card because the victorian edge is a little shorter so it doesn’t stand perfectly

so I laid it down so you can see the black edge inside the card. 

IMG_0005

Thanks for stopping by!  I so appreciate you and I am not sure I tell you often enough!

Hope you have a wonderful day and find time to be creative!

More Minis!

Hello Friends,

I had so much fun creating my mini trio of cards the other day for the Mod Squad Challenge

and I couldn’t wait to make more!  Although this time I made single ones instead.

ModSquadBadge

Here is the first one!

All stamps are Gina K designs and the set is called Snowflake.

The card measures 3 3/4 x 3 1/2

I am not sure you can see the fine dusting of glitter I put on the center snowflake.

And tell me is it strange to make black snowflakes?  I kinda liked it! LOLIMG_0003

IMG_0002

Okay now I am off  to go get my other mini ready to post!

Don’t go far!

IMG_0002

Hello Crafting Peeps,

Today over at Just Us Girls we are happy to announce we have

Don’t you worry we are still going strong, we are one of the longest running challenge

Okay, TRENDS seem to be one of the new crazes in Card making and we thought it

would be fun to also try WORD week as well.  That one leaves creativity wide open!

Speaking of WORD week…that is what we are starting with today!

Some card details:

My card kinda speaks for itself.  This was the first time I have ever used my SU-Owl punch… YEAH!!

The tree I drew by hand and cut it out.  The leaves were made with the SU- Blossom punch.

The sentiment is from Verve!

Until next time!

Craft On!
