For the Bride

Happy Wednesday!! There's a fun challenge posted at LaLa Land Crafts today, hosted by Jane of " Whoopsie Daisy " who would like us to made WHITE cards! White-on-White actually, where everything is white except your coloring of your image. I must admit I don't do white cards often at all, but they look so elegant! You must check out the DT's card samples at LaLa Land Crafts!   White reminded me of a wedding card, which I need soon as my nephew is getting married in August, so this will go to Sharon, my soon-to-be niece *Ü* I started a tradition of making bridal cards using pieces of my own veil. Of course I would never cut up my wedding dress, but I'm sure my veil will be so out-dated by the time my girls get married that they'll want their own veil. Remember THIS CARD -- I also used my veil for it and it went to my husband's niece a couple years ago. I used Princess LaLa and added Dazzling Diamonds for her tiara, dress, shoes, and edge of veil and

Stenciled Gift Bag & Giveaway

Happy Friday!! I don't know where this week went... just zoomed on by! Anyway, I have one more project to share with you using 2 of the new ART STENCILS from Layers of Color. I bought this large black gift bag and stenciled the Victorian Corner and Vintage Medallion with metalic silver ink, that suprisingly enough was my very first ink pad that I ever bought about 6 years ago and it's still inky!! It was hard to get good lighting on this, but after stenciling the middle medallion, I added crystal stick-ons all around the inside circle. It really dressed up a plain ol' bag. How would YOU like to win one of the LOC art stencils of your choice? Just leave me a comment here and I will pick another winner on Saturday morning! Also, this is the last day to get in on the 15 % OFF Sale going on this week at Layers of Color . It includes everything in the store!! And one more thing before I go... a huge Congrats goes out to Jessica and Laura as Laura announced today on

Mice Wishes & a Sister Challenge

Hello! Hope you're having a great weekend so far? I sure am enjoying the warmer weather here (nice to get the kids outside too!) My card here uses this week's free digi from Designed 2 Delight 's progressive challenge, called " Mice Wishes ."    Ok, now for my " sister challenge " (with Kathy) she got to make up the challenge this week, which was to combine our D2D image with a recipe challenge: 1 Designer Paper 2 images 3 embellishments I used a DP from my Basic Grey pad, " Max N Whiskers ", and for my 2nd image I doodled and added a hand-written sentiment ("HB" for Happy Birthday) and the 3 embellies are my brown crocheted flower (TE KI Kit), a button, and an embroidery floss bow. ☺ I admit, I might have stretched the requirements a tad, but hey... this was my 3rd attempt!! OK, now head on over to Kathy's blog and see how hers turned out and leave her some luv!!

Scrap-Creations BG & D2D Challenges

Here's a little card I made today for Scrap-Creation's Basic Grey Challenge #14 (Birthday card), and also for Faith's Designed 2 Delight , using this week's free digi! I used my new pad of "Capella" Basic Grey paper, along with Blush Blossom cardstock, and a couple other newbie colors that I don't know the names of. I also made this for my "sister challenge" with Kathy which was to combine these 2 challenges and see how our cards came out differently. It's funny cause a lot of times we think so much alike when it comes to crafting, so we get a kick out of it sometimes. You can check hers out at the link above. ☺  Thanks for looking!  Happy Inking :)
