This Is Your Day

Hello friends, today at The Sisterhood of Crafters 
we have a new challenge theme and it is
DOTS AND/OR STRIPES.

As you can see I went with dots for my card using a 
Memory Box Large Ringlets (2014) die.
I have used this die before but not in a long time
so it felt good to get it out again and put it to use!

I also added a flower from my Spellbinders stash of
handmade flowers and a sentiment from The Ton Easy Expressions.
The dotted background paper is from My Favorite Things.

Come on over and visit us at
The Sisterhood and check out all the beauty from my 'sistahs'!

Guest Designing At Word Art Wednesday

 Hello friends, this is my last guest design spot for this month over at
Word Art Wednesday challenge
and I have created the card below using the scripture sent to me
for the challenge.

My card is a 5 1/2" by 5 1/2" square card that I am hoping will fit in a
6 inch envelope.  The background papers are from Mintay Birdsong
and I used a  Gina Marie Designs die to print my scripture on.
The flowers were created using Concord & 9th Picked Posie dies,
one butterfly is Cheapo dies and the other is Sue Wilson.
The strips at the bottom are Pretty Pink Posh.
A few gems were added for a bit of bling!


We would love to have YOU join us at Word art Wednesday
and I want to thank Karen and the team for having me guest design!!

Sketch Saturday #745

Hello friends, it time again for another sketch from 
Sketch Saturday 
and it is a pretty easy one at that!

We have an OPTIONAL twist of to feature GREEN!


For my card, I turned it to go up and down which suits my style better.
After all they say to make a sketch your own as long as the sketch can be seen!
I used a few just purchased Reminisce 'Irish Kiss' stickers from a 12x12 sheet of
St Patrick's fun!  The background paper is from the same packet.


Come on over and join us for our fun sketch at Sketch Saturday!!


Squares/Circles Challenge

Hello friends, it's time for a new challenge at
Can You Handle The Pressure and our 'OPTIONAL' theme is
CIRCLES AND/OR SQUARES!

I chose circles for my card using a 3D embossing folder from
WeR Memory Keepers 'Dotted' folder.

I kept my card simple and had a dire need for a sympathy card
so chose to go that route!
The greenery is a PoppyStamps Sylvan Sprig
and the sentiment is from The Ton Easy Expressions.


My card is actually a lighter green in color but to capture
the circles on the bottom of my card I had to darken up
my photo!

Come on over to Can You Handle The Pressure,
get those embossing folders out and have some fun with us!!

Patterned Paper

 Hello Friends, it's time again for a new challenge theme at
Double D and it is PATTERENED PAPER.
We have a mood board  for inspiration but you can create
with any of your pretty papers!!

I made a couple of cards, only because I didn't care too much for my first one
but came up with THIS card that I like a whole lot better.

I had a new to me paper pad from Echo Park 'Bee Happy'(2023)
that is full of beautiful mostly black and yellow papers.
I added some of my homemade flowers, some from Spellbinders, Concord & 9th and some from Pretty Pink Posh. 

Funny, but this is not what I had intended to do but where it ended up!
The sentiment is yet again from The Ton Easy Expressions!


My second card  is using some paper from
P13 Spring Is Calling (2023).
The base is a Spellbinders Candlewick Rectangle
and the Tulips are Memory Box Dancing Tulips (2012).
The sentiment is stamped on another Spellbinders die
and is a TH stamp.


So get out all those patterned papers you are hoarding
and get busy and join in our challenge at Double D,
always a fun prize up for grabs and lots of beautiful inspiration
from the teams too!!

Birthday Wishes


 I saw where Time Out challenges were celebrating their 10th
birthday of being a challenge blog.
Being a co-owner of 9 challenge blogs I know how much time
and effort is put into running challenge blogs
and wanted to join in with their birthday celebrations.
Just to keep it going for TEN years is quite a feat!
I also mentioned it to my partner in crime(Dar) that
we both should join in and she jumped at the chance to
create something then other for our own challenge blogs.
and you can see her card HERE!

For my card I used a beautiful Altenew layered stencil
Golden Days.  I have used this stencil before but never in
these colors, which are Altenew's 
Blush~Rouge~Crimson and Velvet.


Happy Birthday Time Out!!
