Happy Sunday!  Hope you are having a nice weekend wherever you are!  It's 117 degrees here in Phoenix, and believe me, THAT'S HOT!!!  So I have been inside where it is cool and passing the day crafting.  Not a bad way to spend my Sunday.

This card I did is for my favorite Aunt.  Her Birthday is coming up and I needed to get it done as I am going on vacation.  Between both my DT duties and cards that have to be made before I go, I am VERY busy!  This is a beautiful cut file from My Scrap Chick that I recently purchased.  I LOVE it!  It was cut on my Silhouette using SCAL.  I used glitter paper for some sparkle, added a few flowers and the sentiment is computer generated.  I really love the result!

Now it's back to work, or should I say PLAY!  See you next time!

I did several 4th of July cards for friends.  I finally got them in the mail ~ I hope they get there on time, I'm a bit behind!  This one is a "less is more type of design".  Clean and crisp, without any clutter.  I think that is my favorite type of design.  So how come I do so much other stuff???  Guess it's true, "Variety is the spice of life"!  Have a FUN, SAFE 4th of July!!!

Five Simple Things ~ Anything Goes

Time to celebrate the USA!  And one fun way to do it is to make a great card showing off the red, white and blue!  Over at Chocolate, Coffee & Cards our great sponsor DRS Designs gave us some great images to work with.  Mine is called "Party Cutie Pie Kid".  And she is a real cutie!  I colored her with my Copics, added a bit of bling and a glitter star.  The balloon is raised with pop dots, but it's hard to see in the photo.

Come see the lovely designs our DT have done to give you some inspiration.  You might even win a $10 gift certificate to use on the DRS site.  They have some FAB stamps.  So what are you waiting for, join us for at CC&CC for some fun.  And,

A.R.T.Challenge #3 ~ ANYTHING GOES!

OK, there is no excuse for not getting in on THIS challenge at A Random Thursday, lol!  It's Anything Goes ~ it can't get much simpler than that!  So why not join us for some fun!  For my card I used a new stamp that I got recently.  I think it is so cute!  It's What's Cookin'?

I used bright sunny colors, a strip of paper that is embossed and put kitchen brads on.  I colored the image with my Copics, added the flower with the button and then the sentiment.  That about did it!

Hop on over to ART and show us what you have created, we can't wait to see your designs!  And while you are there, be sure to check out our great DT!

A.R.T. Challenge #2 ~ SKETCH

What a fabulous turn out we had for our 1st challenge over at A.R.T!  Thank you all so much for your support.  Your creations were lovely!  It was very difficult to pick a winner, so many FAB entries

Time for our 2nd challenge and this time we have a great sketch for you!
I really like the simple lines of this sketch, so I chose to do something a little fancy but kept it simple.

Just one patterned paper, a bit of ribbon, the flowers and sentiment, simple.

Now it's your turn to have some fun and create a card with this sketch!  Hop on over to A Random Thursday and join the fun!

OK, This is going to be a FUN one at CC&CC!  How about a game of BINGO!  
Here is the card:
Our super sponsor is KennyK, and with their images this was really a great, creative challenge!  My problem was trying to decide on what items to choose for my BINGO!  Well, since it was such a hard choice, I used them ALL!!!  Look closely and you will see them, lol!

My image is called Happy Hour.  To me it really looks a bit retro, so I went along with that look with the papers I used.

CC&CC is also having a DT call.  We are looking for outgoing individuals who shares our passion for card making and wants to share it with others.  No prior experience is required.  Come on over and find out what the position will require.  If you think it is for you, go for it!  We want to hear from you!

So pop on over to Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenges to join us for this exciting challenge and also let us know if you would like to join a FUN, FAB DT!!!
