Tuesday Throwdown this week is all about flowers - Handmade Flowers, that is. We're being sponsored by Flourish with a Bling. Come on over and enter for your chance to win a wonderful prize package from our sponsor.
I've used a die from MFT to make this flower for my card. The center was done with an enamel dot and the twine looped behind the flower. The patterned paper is a scrap that was on my desk and the sentiment from SU. I did a little splattering with various inks. Sorry for the poor quality of this photo but for whatever reason it just wasn't coming out the bright white that it is. The flower did but the rest of the card just refused to cooperate!
Thanks for stopping by..........and be sure and check out the Tuesday Throwdown challenge this week.

This is one of the Art Impression stamps from Michael's. It was just too fun to pass up - and I'm glad I didn't. I did a little paper piecing and coloring - and fussy cutting. That's about it but think she'll like the card.
I'll enter this in the challenge at Art Impressions (Birthday).
I'm going to be missing in action for a few days - but will be back Tuesday. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

This is a little different but thought it came out ok. The stamps are from Paper Smooches. I added a gold enamel dot, embossed the heart, and added some little die cut hearts. Very clean and simple. Anyway, there you have it.
I'll enter this in the challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More (Clean and Simple) and the Spots and Dots challenge at Simon Says Stamp.

This is Dog Days of Summer from Deedee's Digis. This set comes with several different images either pre-colored or not, sentiments, and digi papers! Can't beat a deal like that! Instead of using the pre-colored image I just colored these little pups myself. Did some embossing, layering of papers, and then added the sun and twine.
Check out Deedee's Digis as we have a progressive challenge going on and you'll really want to play along with the one this month. If you played last month you've already received your free image this month (and it's a cutie for sure). If not, you can get the digi of the month right now at a reduced price. Check it out!

The other day I placed an order with Joann's on line and this stamp - that I'd been wanting FOREVER - was on sale!!!!! Yipee!!! Make me a happy camper for sure. So, I ordered it along with a couple of other things and just couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I'd already planned out the perfect design, sentiment, the works. The package came in the mail and I ripped it open.....started searching for that cute little 2X2 (approximate) Penny Black stamp! Nope, not in there.......kept digging and this big mama came out! WHOA! That is one BIG stamp!!! I never even checked the size of the stamp when I ordered, just assumed it was what I wanted. (Never assume anything Lynn!) Anyway.......it's big but it's still a cutie! I didn't add much color except to the hat of course, a little to the holly, and a smidgen of gray to the cat. Added some Wink of Stella to the hat and that was about it. Done deal!
Another Christmas card completed!

The images in this set (Life is Good) are from Lawn Fawn. I colored them with Copics and then sponged in the sky and added a sun die. Very clean and simple. Being inspired by the color challenge I have blue/aqua skies, yellow sun and sand, and an orange crab. Ok, so I've never really seen a totally orange crab before but it is kinda cute in that color. I think if you can have a blue crab, surely you can have an orange one too!
I'll enter this is the Lawnscaping Challenge (Color Inspiration) and Addicted to Clean and Simple (code word is Sky).

Let's Have a Picnic! That's the theme for our challenge at Tuesday Throwdown this week and we're being sponsored by Meljen's who also provided the images to the Design Team. Be sure and check out our challenge blog and enter for your chance to win a wonderful prize from Meljen's.
When I saw the image it just looked like it needed to be made into a tag and then placed with a yummy apple pie. I got the tag made anyway! The sentiment is an old one from SU and I used some scraps of gingham looking paper. The sequins....I seem to be overloading you with sequins on my projects lately, but they're breeding in my craft room and I just have too many! The stitched scallop piece at the top was done with a die from Pretty Pink Posh.
