Handmade Flowers

This week over at Come and Get It Challenges, our challenge is to MAKE YOUR OWN FLOWER(S). This flower is one I have made a few of in the past ( I tried a 2 inch paper rose, but it was just TOO big for a card) so thought I would go with it. I did the flower using printer paper and cut 10 layers with my scalloped circle Nesties. Crumpled it all up, then laid them out and brayered each piece with Pink Passion. When they were dry, punched a hole in the center, added a brad to keep them together, then just puffed if up. This card was SUPER easy, as it is just a Hot Pink base card with a sheet of DP from DCWV's Blossoms and Butterflies Stack. I added Stickles to the flourishes and some MS Butterfly punches, and it was done.
I hope you will come join us at Come and Get It this week so we can see your beautiful creations, too...and to get more great ideas on handmade flowers, of course! Have a WONDERFUL day!

Kick Up Your Heels....

We all know how much I love ( cough ) to make men's cards....well this one was made for a friend of mine for his birthday. He is an Okie, so I thought the Cowboy Boot was just perfect! I watercolored the boot ( go figure) and cut it out so I could put it where I wanted. The Star border is little punches that I glued along the paper needed something and ribbon wasn't it! The sentiment was computer generated which works perfectly when you need to totally personalize a card! He really liked it, so I was thrilled~
This card fits several challenges out there this week, so I will enter it into the following:

Totally Gorjuss - All About Boys
Sweet Stampin' - One for the Boys
A Gem of a Challenge - Let's Hear It For The Boys

Rubber Hugs,

Today I have a little something different for is 9 x 4 inch card. It is the sketch this week at Come and Get It Challenges.
We hope you will all come by and play along~
I used some SU DP on top of Old Olive and Easy Elegance for my Flowers. This has long  been one of my favorite sets. The sentiment is a digital sentiment from TLC Creations. Check them out, they have some wonderful Digis to choose from!
I will be back later with some more creations. Have a GREAT SUNDAY!

Oy I am BAD....

This week at Come and Get It Challenges, we have a Color Challenge using Light Blue, Light Pink, and Light Green. This little Tilda is my DT card for this week. Yes, I am BAD, I should have posted it on Sunday when the challenge went up, and I really have no good excuse. I apologize to everyone for my tardiness.
I used Midsummer Tilda with StazOn and then watercolored her. The embossing folder is made by Cuttlebug, and I cut the ovals with Nesties. I added the flowers and charm, and was done. Quick and easy, then pretty, too!
I will also enter this into the following challenges out there this week:

Allsorts - Free and Easy
Marks Finest Papers - Die Cut
The Crafty Pad - Texture

There are several others out there, but I will save those for the next card. Yes I have others I have made and not posted, so til tomorrow, have a great day!
