Hello my scrappy friends!
I have been wanting to make a new card for Cherry Lynn Blog for the past two weeks and everytime I try to sit down to make it... something comes up and I wasnt able to finish... :(
Today I finally.....finished a card inspired by this week's Mojo Monday # 381 and sweethearts from Cheery Lynn Challenge #168. No title on the front of the card...kind of rare for me...but I love it just this way. 

It really a bit lighter pastels in real still loving shabby chic.

A closer view....I layered the doily then pop dots with the larger pink heart then another pop dot and the smaller white heart on top. All the flowers are made with the miniature rose diecut. 

Diecuts used:

DL 128 Two Of Hearts
B178 Flourish Leaf Strip
B152 Miniature Rose
DL 103 Italian Flourish

Here is this week's fabulous sketch for my inspiration! 
Thank you 

Thanks for stopping by! 
Have a great day!

Disney Elsa Birthday Card

Good Evening everyone!
Tonight Im sharing a card that I made for a girlfriends little girl. Every year I make her a birthday day card that my friend places in a shadow box for display to give to her daughter someday.
 This year it is all about Elsa from the Disney Frozen. I think all little girls love the movie. Im not a great colorer or even drawer, so I have been looking for the perfect Elsa picture. 
Finally I seen it on Friday with my girlfriend at the local store. It is part of a Disney Elsa valentine set. Perfect!

A side view. This is a 5 x5 card with lots of blues! 
I had a little bit of pom pom left for the bottom...I thought it was great for snowballs. :)

I used lots of spellbinders diecuts and the snowflakes are from cheery lynn.
I also added pearls from a stringer throughout.

Inside view of the bottom left hand corner is more Elsa! 

Love the icicles from Spellbinders! I also embossed all the blue paper...

Hello my scrappy friends!
Today I made a new card for my daughter and her fiance. It is a card way overdue, but now it will be a total surprise to her and him. I used the Mojo Monday #380 sketch and then I added the congrats below with a typewriter and paper. The background paper is embossed brick and the other pieces are scraps from DT in the past. I choose these colors because the wedding theme is to be a vintage-country. Last night my daughter and I were thinking of colors and I told her to talk to her fiance....but we started to had towards whites, creams, beige, taupe, and browns?  What do you think?

I added some ribbon, lace, pearls and of course flowers! 

Here is the actual finished card and the date he proposed to her....
The typewriter is a spellbinder diecut and the white leaves are from Cheery Lynn

A closer view....

Here is this weeks fabulous sketch by Teresa...Thank You! 

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!

S.W.A.K. Thank You!

Happy Saturday everyone! 
I was looking at all my Christmas decor today and Im sad that the season is over... We haven't taken down anything yet and I was debating if I should tomorrow or next weekend? My hubby says leave it up till July! lol I have lots of red in my christmas collection, since it is my favorite color. So today I wanted to make a red card and enter it in Cherry Lynn Designs Blog Challenge #165 this, Thank You! I made this card for my mother who sent my children and myself some wonderful Christmas cards and she sent me some Lamer for my skin! Totally love the smell and the way it feels on your face.  My mother loves cats, so I bought this stamp a while ago to use it for a card for her. Of course, since it is my mother, I wanted to seal it with a kiss or two!

I was thinking about making roses, but I think Im a bit rosed out lately. So that is what is so great about Cheery Lynn's diecuts you can make other flowers with them too! 

I added pearls in the center of the flowers. 
I also used the smaller of the swak diecut for the outside. 
I was also thinking outside of the box! lol Placing kitties in the birdcage instead of birds! 

Here is the inside with the larger swak and love the lips! 

I also wanted to add some hearts for I do love my mother so much! 

Here are the diecuts from Cheery Lynn that I used today:

DL 128 Two of Hearts
B198 Bird Cage 
B374 Sealed with a Kiss
DL102 French Pastry 
B241 Rose Leaf Strip 
B152 Miniature Rose

PS I would LOVE to design again with Cheery Lynn! 
(Forgot to add it behind my name) Oops! 

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks! Mojo Monday #378

Happy Holiday everyone! 
I hope you are having a great holiday season with family and friends. 
Today, Im sharing with a new card made for this week's Mojo Monday #378.
A beautiful sketch as always and lots of layers on my card. I originally was planning on making a 
New Years Eve card, however it took a turn a twist into more of a country shabby look? I dont have any thank you cards in my stash, so I figured I sure could use some quickly. 

The papers are from Donna Salazar, I have had them for a while now.
They match up so nicely! 

The wooden clock is part of my stash, sorry I dont remember who made it :(
Added ribbon and pearls....but no flowers! lol
I fussy cut some extra butterflies from an extra patterned paper and placed pop dots behind them. 

I used the same paper in the front for the inside is just beautiful! 

Here is wonderful sketch this week! 

Thanks for stopping by!

...And To All A Good Night!

Good afternoon everyone! 
Happy Monday! 
Today, Im sharing with you a new card I just finished for the holiday season. It was inspired once again by Mojo Monday #375. I love the sketches and it always helps me get started. When I seen the circle in the middle, I knew I wanted to make a wreath. So here was my problem? My cricut died and I always used it for my luckily I have lacey circles from spellbinders. So, I printed up my font then cut it out with my diecut and added all the branches and pearls. whew!!! 

The papers are vintage in colors, so I chose a cream for the background. It always looks white for some reason when I take a photo? hummm..well it is cream.

I added some cream lace and added more of the font for the bottom of the card. 

Inside I added the spellbinders icicles until I finish the rest of the card. 

Here is the fabulous sketch this week once again from 
Julee Tilman! 

Have a great week!

Just Around The Corner!

Hello everyone, Happy Saturday!
Today, Im sharing with you a card inspired by this week's Mojo Monday #374!
I just cant believe that Christmas is just around the corner. Lots of red in my home this year so the colors of this card blend right in with my theme. I wanted to use some of my old old stickers that get thrown in the drawer and seem to never come back out again. The felt stickers are from Martha Stewart, Ive been wanting to use them for years and now I found the perfect card to use them.

The red foil letters are super shiny from thickers. I found an old snowman border and used a few snowflake diecuts from Cheery Lynn. I then added a ornament diecut with some ribbon and pearl for the christmas font.  

I wanted to add some snow the the bottom of the snowmen for a 3D look. This is liquid applique and I heated it up with my heating tool. 

Here is the fabulous sketch this week! 
Thanks to Julee Tilman! 

Have a great weekend!
