A New Someone To Love

This card was made for this week's For Fun Challenge which is anything goes as long as you include ribbon or creative...let's see what you got....bring it on! For ALL the details on the challenge make sure you pop on over to For Fun and get all the deets. You won't believe what you can win! Can't wait to see what you come up with! To make it even more interesting, we are being sponsored by CraftBrulee and the gorgeous flower that you see on my card is guessed it...CraftBrulee! Isn't it awesome! The ribbon is also from there and it is very luxurious.....mmmmm! You've got to check them out....they have some of the most beautiful things I've seen out there. I am in LOVE! The background paper that I used is from Webster's Pages and it comes in this awesome little combo pack which includes both the Lullaby Lane & Life's Portrait designs. This paper is just gorgeous and such a perfect compliment to this beautiful lace flower. The sentiment is computer generated and I added a couple of pearls in the corner just to finish it off. Hope you like it and thanks so much for stopping by!

For Fun Challenge - Just For Fun!

This week's challenge over at For Fun is to create a card with one ribbon, two designer papers and three embelishments. That's it...easy, right? Hop on over to For Fun Challenges and check out what the girls came up with.
 For my card, I chose some DP from a paper pack from Me and My Big ideas called Baby Boy and mounted it on kraft card stock. I used an adorable image from Bugaboo Stamps....I just love their images! I added a twill ribbon as required by the challenge and then added two dog paws that I got in a pack of buttons and one red button which by my count adds up to three embelishments. I used a MS border punch on some red card stock to accent the striped paper, inked up all the DP and image to give it that little boy "dirty" look and there you have it. I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!

Hello my card making blogger friends! Don't you just love Fridays? I know I do. Today I thought I would show you card that I made a couple weeks ago for The Stamping Boutique. Speaking of TSB, why don't you check this out: On Aug 28th at 7pm CST you can join in on some fun with The Stamping Boutique and win some free images. Join Helen and myself for fun, games and of course lots of chatting, try to win a few images at our Digi Day on SNR for For The Stamping Boutique. If you've never been to one of these event....give it a shot, you'll enjoy it.
Now for the card....I used Audrey the Equestrian as my main image. The DP is from the wonderful October Afternoon paper collection along with some turquoise card stock. I cut out a couple of the flowers from the paper, popped them up on some Dimensionals and covered them in Crystal Effects. I also added a pearl accent to the middle and there you have it! I hope you like the card and thanks for stopping by!

Good Friends Good Wine Good Times

Today's project was created for a friend of mine. I was invited to spend the day out on the lake with her and some wonderful friends a couple of weeks ago. Sounded so fun and refreshing but of course....the day I was supposed to go, woke up sick. Grrrr! So, I still have the gift for my friend which I will eventually give to her but it just won't be the same. Oh well, at least I now have time to share it with you.
My project was created out of inspiration that I found at HL through a journal. I immediately fell in love with the colors because green is my favorite color (for today). There's really no rules around making a wine bottle tag. Just cut the tag the size you want it....I slipped the top of the rectangle through a circle nestie just to round off the top, cut a hole in the top and then scored so it would lay flat. That's it. I used SU's Baroque Motif swirly stamp, covered a chipboard heart with some black and white DP also found at HL and created the sentiment on the PC. I threw on some black rhinestones and a green one on the heart just for some pizazz and there you have it! Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!

Fun in the Sun

This week's challenge over at For Fun Challenges is an appropriate one for this time of year.....anything that has to do with water. Anything. Have fun with it....think of beaches, lighthouses, kids swimming etc. I decided to go with the beach theme and use my super funny favorite Ethel from Rubbernecker. She just cracks me up! For the beach I used some good old sandpaper. I added ribbon to the back of it to look like water. I really liked the way that ribbon turned out.
I punched out the word HOT and adhered it to the sand using pop dots. I colored Ethel using Copics and if you look real close....she has a little sunburn! I cut out a sun from the DP scraps and covered it and her glasses with Crystal Effects. On the inside of the card...I threw in a little more sand, sun and a crab and of course I finished it off with the rest of the sentiment. Make sure you check out all the creations over at For Fun Challenges and play along! Hope you like my card and thanks for stopping by!
