ADFD #122 Challenge - Use 3 Patterned Papers

Hi Everyone, I've got an entry up on my blog today for A Day For Daisies Challenge this week which is using 3 patterned papers on your project.  I used an image I've had for a while called Sunday's Wash.  It was actually the first image I'd seen of ADFD online that drew me into their store!  There are sentimental emotional ties to seeing that wash out on the line, it takes me back to being a kid and hanging our clothes out to get the best fresh air smell!  Play Here with ADFD

The great mat dies are by MFT and the hello die cut is from Wplus9.  Patterned papers are from the Jack and Jill and So Happy Together packs by Echo Park.

I really, really enjoyed putting this happy card together and appreciate your visit!  Have a great day and create beautiful things wherever you go :)

Hiding In My Craftroom
Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge Blog
Chocolate Coffee & Cards

Sentimental Sundays Challenge #261 ~ Mocha, Tea, Latte

Good Sunday morning to everyone!!  Today, over at Sentimental Sundays, Scrappers Delights is sponsoring our challenge using a Mocha/Tea/Latte theme.  We are showcasing some of their wonderful digital images!  

For my card, I used the stacked tea cups from the "Tea Sentiments" set shown below.  I water colored the top 2 cups with distress inks, then paper pieced the bottom cup and rimmed it with a Perfect Pearls gold line.  The die mat is by MFT DieNamics Inside & Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangles and then mounted on Gina K Dark Chocolate cardstock.

Thanks for visiting my blog, have a wonderful day, create beautiful things wherever you go! :)

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #229

Hi everyone!  Today, I've just finished this pretty little poppy card and wanted to share it with you.  Yesterday, I received some big news that I'm unable to share with the rest of the world.  So until it's finalized, (don't want to jinx anything), I need to stay quiet, (not easy for me).  What better way to do that, than to hole up in my craft room? :)

So I'm entering this in the MFT Sketch challenge, Click Here to Play!!!  Here's what this week's sketch looks like:

I just turned it on it's side and started with some MFT Natural Cardstock as my base.  The poppies, leaves and banner were all created using MFT's "Pretty Poppies".  New to me is a product called "irRESTISTible" Pico Embellisher by Imagine Crafts.  I was able to make these super awesome dimensional dots (the little gold dots) and when they dry, they stay rounded.  Comes in all sorts of colors, I'm buying all of them, lol!

Thanks for stopping by, have a happy Memorial Day, thank a Veteran if you have the opportunity, for the freedoms we enjoy every day.

Mid-week coloring indulgence!

Hello everyone, it's middle of the week and wow I'm slammed with work...that I'm supposed to be doing right now.  However, making this card this morning was a lot more fun.  Crafting gives me a little balance at the start of the day, so this, along with my coffee was just a tiny indulgence.

A Day For Daisies is currently sharing this lovely digi on their challenge blog for FREE!  Isn't she gorgeous?  I think about my grandma in old black and white photos, looking much like this as a young girl.  Don't wait to get over there and grab it for yourselves!  I'm even helping you by linking their current challenge, where you'll find her Click Here!!!

I followed along with the gorgeous color challenge below.  A Day For Daisies is truly one of my very favorite digi stamp companies.  I love many brands, but ADFD just speaks to me.  I hope you enjoy my creation and will play along too!  Have a wonderful day and create beautiful things wherever you go!
