What a wonderful Friday this is. I am about to leave to go see my daughter, Brittany, at ECU. We are going to the Purple/Gold Pigskin Pigout Party this weekend. It should be a really good time. However, before that, I wanted to post this Sunflower card. I picked this image because I thought it would be perfect with this card design. The sunflower is a digi stamp found at PriscillaStyle Store. I love this digi set - especially the sentiments. I am posting this card on the CDAC Anything Goes Challenge.
The papers that I used on this card are old DSPs from Stampin Up. I thought the colors would be perfect. I hope you enjoy this card!
This is a picture of the card from the front and closed.
The following images are of the card being opened.
If you have followed my post for a while, you will know that I love to go to Wine and Design places to paint, drink, and snack with my friends. We have the best time doing this. Well, I did it again a few weeks ago and am just getting around to posting this here. We tried a new place this time and the instruction wasn't as good as the other place that we go to, but we muddled through and created a night beach scene. The chair was the hardest part of the painting, but I think the whole thing turned out pretty good. As always, I started with a blank canvas!
Then we started working on the sky:
Then we worked on the ocean and the moon.
We started working on the waves.
As you can see, adding colors here and there it starts to look like a painting.
But, it always looks better when it is totally finished. I like this painting.
Today is Tax Day! Well, fortunately I have already completed and sent my taxes. I always dread this day. So glad that it is now behind us.
So, I have created a card with a new stamp set from A|Muse Studios. I think that fruit stamps are in vogue this year. I have seen them all around. As I have said before, I love the sentiments that A|Muse has with their stamps. I used their superfine glitter and clear embossing powder to make this card. And, of course, their twine. Hope you enjoy this card!
Today I am posting a Triangle Tri=Fold Birthday Card that I made. This is a pretty easy card to make. The directions for it can be found on splitcoast stampers. I used a new stamp set that I purchased from A|Muse. I just love the sentiments that they have for their stamps. I used some cupcake designer papers that I have in my scrap bin. I am really trying to use more of my scraps so that I can get rid of them. Every time I look through my scraps, I find some amazing papers that I forgot I had.
I am posting a new card for the CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenge with this adorable rainbow digi stamp. I used glitter on the clouds and made sure I put the colors of the rainbow in the correct order - LOL! Hope you enjoy my card!
Today I am posting a card for the CDAC Easy as 1-2-3 Challenge. This digi is created by Nana Vic! You should definitely check out her digis! Okay, so this challenge had to have one sentiment, two designer papers, and three embellishments. I had fun with this creation!
I have created a card for the Seasonal Fun Challenge at CDAC. I enjoyed making this card. I love the digi that was used on this card. I hope you will love it as well. I used bling - no surprise - and made it into a birthday card with balloons! I hope you will join in on the challenge!
I have entered the card below into the Inspiration Challenge at CDAC. I love making cards based on color combinations. The digi images that I used are created by LilaGrey. I think it is a really simple looking card but elegant at the same time. I hope you enjoy it!
Crafters Digital Art Center, CDAC, has a Progressive Digi Freebie Challenge where you can get a free digi. When you post a your creation, you can then send an email for the next freebie. There are 4 freebies you can receive if you are posting creations that you have made with each of them. I have created a card using the first digi, which is an umbrella. I hope you enjoy this card, it was really fun to create! I used petaloo flowers that we received to create projects for in March.
I love butterflies, not as much as ladybugs, but they are next in line! LOL! I have designed a card with a digi image I received to enter into the Anything Goes Challenge at CDAC. I hope that you will go to this site and join in the fun. I took a maple tag and put a butterfly on it with marker and glitter. This digi is created by Tiffany Doodles and is amazing. I will be using this a bunch.
The CDAC challenges have just begun for April through June.
I am 53 years young and have been crafting all of my life. I first starting doing crafts with my mom when I was 5. We did ceramics and entered them in state competitions. I won first place on several of my creations. I have done all different kinds of crafts but have become very addicted to cardmaking over the last 7 years. I love being able to design, create, and work with amazing people all over the world. I am now expanding my crafting to all sorts of things - most of which you will see on this blog over time.
