"Happy Birthday" at Tuesday Throwdown

Hi Crafty Bloggies!  Today starts a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown and we are sponsored by
http://www.winniewalter.com/Winnie & Walter and our theme is "Happy Birthday".

I've used "The Big, the Bold and the Happy" clear stamp set from our sponsor.
 I removed "birthday" and "happy", inked up the whole set with black to make my background, then inked up the two words in a deep pink and added them back onto the page.  The burlap flower is from The Paper Studio (I think!) and I tied a double bow from sheer ribbon.


A simple finish on the inside and you can see the dimension on the front.  

Thanks for stopping by and I sure hope you'll check out all the great DT inspiration over at Tuesday Throwdown, then join us!  See you there!

Sprinkles of Fun!

Hi!  I've had quite a rough time trying to get this post made!  My internet works (somewhat) at home, but is SOOOOOO very slow this weekend.  I got my card uploaded to My Sheri Crafts in time, thankfully, but since then I can't seem to get anything done.  It took about 15 minutes to get the picture to upload for my blog post, but then it NEVER did actually go into the post!  So I thought I would email it to my self at work, but then of course my email wouldn't send.  I finally had to take new pictures and bring the card to work and upload it again!  So now I'm 3 days late!  Ugh!!

OK, Rant over!

We have a new and super fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts this week!  Glenda has challenged us to us Ice Cream on our card or project. 

This ice cream cut is from Cricut's "Sweet Treats" cartridge and the doily is from Cricut's "Lovely Floral".  I used the print feature on the Cricut for the sentiment and the paper is from a 4x6 pad from Die Cuts With a View.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you at My Sheri Crafts!

One Layer at Tuesday Throwdown

Oh boy, I missed it!  I had this post almost ready to go, just needed the sponsor info and I got busy with our Rodeo Bible Camp and didn't get it done!  I apologize to my Tuesday Throwdown team!!!

This week we are sponsored by our own DT sister, Kim Sherrod of 
and our theme this week is One Layer!



I've used 2 digis from Digi Darla Stamps and lightly colored them with Spectrum Noir markers.  I wanted more of a hint of color rather than a "colored" image, so I used all #1 shades in True Blue, Coral, Ice Gray and Pale Pink, and Tan #3 for the branch.

The inside is lined with a pale blue onionskin type paper.  The scripture stamp is from Cardztv and the Congratulations stamp is from Pink By Design.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope to see you join us!

Too Cute to Pinch!

It's another Saturday, which means another new challenge at My Sheri Crafts!  This time Sue has challenged us with "Down at the Beach" -  make something with a beach or seaside theme.  With the temperatures they're predicting for us next week, I'm going to wish I was at the beach!!

I used a card cut from Cricut's "Life's A Beach" cartridge for my card this week.  These make really cute, quick and easy cards.  



The sentiment is computer generated, I just wanted a little rhyme for a my new Zippy Zebra buddy who is very young.  I added a little fuzzy yarn to his mouth, thinking it would just make it show up better, but it looks kind of like a mustache! I added the fuzzy bric-a-brac ribbon because I thought it kind of looked like waves and the stickers are some I bought at Dollar General years and years ago when I first started scrapbooking.  I finally was able to throw away the sheet!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll join us this week!  See you there!

Tuesday Throwdown 300th Challenge Anniversary & Giveaways!!

Good Morning!  It's time for a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  This week we are sponsored by
                                                   http://thepapershelter.com/ 
and our theme is "Fairies and Fantasy"!  

I used a cute, precolored image and paper from our sponsor called "Cutest Wizard":


I've imported the image and paper into Cricut Design Space and used the Print Then Cut feature to make a total of 3 layers of the wizard and toad.
The banner is also a Cricut cut using the Print Text feature, then attached with pop-dots.   The stars and "magical" washi tape are from Lawn Fawn.  Inside is a sentiment stamp from Copper Leaf Creations that says "Have a toad-ally hoppy day!"

This week Tuesday Throwdown is celebrating our 300th challenge anniversary!!!!

MHK Designs Birthday Blog Hop!

Hello, and welcome to our SURPRISE Birthday Beach Blog Hop for the lovely Asha!  You should have arrived here from Rachelle's blog.  If not, start at the MHKDesigns blog to complete the hop for more chances to WIN!  We are celebrating a very special lady today, and we're doing so by creating beachy birthday cards to wish her many happy returns!

I didn't get the theme or photo inspiration for this one, but I did make a birthday card!  lol!  

I've used a cute digi  cake and sentiment provided by MHK Designs and foiled it in this electric blue.  It doesn't show very well in the pic, but it's really shiny! The white doily cut is a Spellbinder's Die and the blue doily is a Cricut cut with Colorbok foil paper.  The card is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and I used a distressing tool around the edges.  The current challenge at Tuesday Throwdown is "Distressing" and it starts today also.  Be sure to join us there, too!

Thank you so much for joining in our hop to say "Happy Birthday" to a dear friend!  Your next stop on the hop is Tracey Mowbray's blog!   Good luck in the hop and have fun!!!
