50 Shades Of Grey

Hi everyone,
Today Im sharing a card that I made last night, inspired by the 50 Shades of Grey from OPI.
I actually havent read the books, but my sister has and she says they are pretty steamy!!! I know the movie is also coming out im debating to read the books first and then see the movie or just watch the movie? Hummmm....
The sketch is from this weeks mojo monday # 382. Thank you! 
I also loved how the double layering of hearts looked on a previous card of mine so I did it again for this weeks Cheery Lynn Designs Anything Goes #169

Lots of diecuts from Cheery Lynn, Spellbinders and Our Daily Bread.

I really love the banner with the cute bows on the end, also the tiny stamps that go perfect with it. These are my first of hopefully many Our Daily Bread collection! 

I didnt make it tall and skinny, but I did try my best to follow the sketch! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks A Bunch

Im sharing today a card that I made last night for a Neurosurgeon, NP and the office girls. My youngest daughter injured her back earlier this week. So my hubby and I took her to the office yesterday. Everything was fast and smooth, but the best part was she is ok!!! So I wanted to say our thanks by making a beautiful card and send them some treats.

MME papers and the stamp is from heartfelt creations. The leaves are from Cheery Lynn. 

Bunches of flowers and bling!

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...

Thanks for stopping by!

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!
