Easter Frame


I finally got this frame done that I've had in my head for awhile.  I had seen this phrase on the internet last year and made a smaller version then.  You can see that one here, but I like this one a lot better! 

The die cuts are both Cricut cuts and I've cut three of each of them.  
Fonts:  blue font is Cricut's Baby Steps, 
  E & J are Everyday Fonts-Celebrate and the 
rest are Elegant Cake-Plain 
The "Easter" and "Jesus" are on the inside of the glass and with that and the 3 layer die cuts there's a lot of dimension inside the frame.

Thanks for checking in!

You're One Cool Chick!

http://samistamp.blogspot.com/Hello!  It's time for a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.  This week we are sponsored by Sami Stamps and our theme is "Add Dimension".  This is going to be a fun one|!!!

I've used our sponsor's image "Little Miss Feather Chick" for my card.  What a cute image! 

She's colored with Spectrum Noir markers and I've added some of my favorite---Sheer Ribbon ---with a Gem slide from The Paper Studio and a feather from my stash.  I've colored and cut a second hat to add another layer of dimension.  The background paper is

some I've had in my stash for a long time.  There's no name on the back of the paper so I'm guessing it came from a pad and is probably from Die Cuts With a View. 

This is another card for one of my Zippy Zebra Buddies and inside it says "You're One Cool Chick!" 

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

A Friend Card in Black & White

Good morning!  I'm sharing a card today that I made using the sweet Bugaboo image "Friend Flower Doodle" that we received in the Freebie/Progressive challenge at The Outlawz.  I thought this would look great as a black and white card.  After putting it together, I love how it worked!

Isn't that a neat image?  It's great when it's colored in, too!  Fun one to work with.  Thanks Bugaboo!

I'm entering a few challenges today...haven't done that for awhile!

Wildflower Birthday Card

We have a new challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown and this week we are sponsored by 
Our theme is "Your Favorite Embellishment".  

I've used an image from our sponsor, "Spring Bouquet" and "Ruffled Wild Orchid Sentiment" to make this card:

It's colored with Spectrum Noir Colored Pencils, cut out with a Sizzix die and both are mounted on a Cricut scalloped circle cut. 
I'm not sure I can say this card has just one favorite embellishment.  I love to use die cuts, sheer ribbon (especially tied in a double bow) and gems.  I also love to ink around the edges of my cards!  If I do have to choose just one fave, I guess it would have to be the.....well...I just can't decide!   LOL!  I do love using my Cricut, though!

Come on over and join us!

"Owl" Love You Forever

Hi!!!  It's a beautiful February day as I'm typing this and I hope you are enjoying the weather wherever you are.  I have just a slight touch of Spring Fever, but I know it's too soon to work in my flower garden so I'm not suffering too much yet.  Wait until March!  Boy then I'll be wanting to get started and that's still too soon!

It's Tuesday, so we have a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  I love this theme --- "Heart Strings - show hearts and string/twine".  Our sponsor is the wonderful 
 http://www.mygrafico.com/digital-stamps/cat_95.html and I had the privilege of picking out the digital set we got to work with this week.  I used "Love Owls" from the set to make my valentine.


I love how it turned out...just my own opinion!  :)

The background paper and the beaded swirls are both from The Paper Studio.  I cut the swirl in half and kind of reshaped it to fit my design.  The dotted ribbon is from American Crafts.  The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and cut out with a Spellbinders die, then mounted on a scalloped circle Cricut cut.  The heart doilie was the finishing touch I felt the card needed.  I played around for quite some time placing things before I decided on that!  

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

January Freebie/Progressive Challenge

Well, after a full week of no phone or internet, I'm finally back!  Thank goodness for being able to schedule posts so I had my last DT post ready!  (And thank goodness I didn't wait until the last minute again for that one!)

We've had a busy week at the ol' homestead here.  We had fence builders (who hit our phone line), tree trimmers/cutters and the phone company all to deal with this week.  Plus it was the week for the hubster's treatment and doctor visit, I'm taking my MIL to physical therapy twice a week (she had a knee replacement) and I had to work 3 evenings this week to get team pictures for our basketball/cheerleading program!  And I still managed to complete a card......just one card.  LOL!

Anyway, this card is for the Freebie/Progressive challenge over at The Outlawz.


The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers, the border punch is from Martha Stewart, the doilie and the punch are sprayed with Glimmer Mist.   The gems are from The Paper Studio and the corner punch is also Martha Stewart.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that one of our horses busted through one of our BRAND, SPANKING NEW fences!!!!!   Ughhhh!!!!  Well, it's been a good weekend so far, though!

Thanks for stopping by!

A Little Flowerpot Hello

Greeting Bloggies!  It's time for another challenge at Tuesday Throwdown and this week we are sponsored by 

                                  and our theme is ANYTHING GOES! That's always a popular one!

I've used the cute "Flowerpot Girl" image from our sponsor for my card today:

The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers, the gems are from Recollections, the ribbon is from American Crafts and the embossing is a Cuttlebug folder.  I  used a Studio G chalk ink pad to lightly rub over the embossing and add some color.

I hope you'll join us this week!
