Sweet Thinking of You

This week we have a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts.  DT Sister Raquel chose the theme "Long Time No See--make anything with missing you, thinking of you, etc.". 

I made this Thinking of You card with the free image from Maken It Crafty that I got through the freebie progressive challenge at The Outlawz.

I've been needing to practice on coloring hair and this image gave me a LOT of practice! It didn't turn out too bad, I guess.  The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and the sentiment is a Cricket cut.  That lace butterfly was a really fun find!  I have a bag of lace that I bought at a yard sale last summer. I've dug through it a few times and used some bits from it, but this time I found a butterfly cut out that measured about 6" and gorgeous!  I don't know what I'm going to male with that but then I found a little clump of lace that had a pin in it.  When I took out the pin, 2 of these butterflies fell out along with a couple of side-view butterflies and some other little cuties!  How fun is that?!

Anyway, I embossed my card base with a Paper Studio folder and a few sequins finished this one off for me.

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

Little Cowboy Birthday card

Hello!   This week at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday our theme is Anything Goes with the twist "Add an Animal!".  We are sponsored this month by 

I made a little boy's birthday card with our sponsor's image "BCFence"

He's colored with Spectrum Noir markers and I added a horse from Cricut's Create A Critter cartridge. They are mounted on a piece of burlap from Hobby Lobby  and then I added a Spellbinder's diecut to frame them.  The sentiment stamp is from "Will and Way" and I hand cut that piece with some decorative scissors.  

I hope you'll join us this week.  This challenge should be another fun one!

Sweet Speedy Recovery Wish

Hey folks!   This week at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday our theme is Anything Goes with the twist "Add Flowers!"  We are sponsored this month by 

I used our sponsor's image "Pretty Flower Girl" to make a sweet get-well card.  

The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and mounted on a Cricut Cut doilie.   It doesn't show up very well, but there is also a strip of lace just above the label.  The sentiment stamp is from Son Light and stamped on a Cricut cut label.  I just inked up the first word for the outside and used the rest on the inside. The paper is from a freebie pack from a papercrafting magazine.  The flower is actually two different ones, both are from The Paper Studio.

I've finished the inside very simply, but it turned out kind of pretty!  I really like that paper!

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

Always Believe frame

Hello and Happy Weekend!  Today I get to play hostess at My Sheri Crafts and choose the challenge theme.  I went for "Show Me Your Decor"!  Any theme, any season, just NO cards this time around!

I made another "floating frame" with a shadow cut from Cricut's "A Child's Year" cartridge and some Paper Studio flowers.

This frame will be donated to the Missouri General Federated Women's Club for a fund raising raffle.  I've used this sentiment before, but I just REALLY like it!  

Be sure to stop by and check out the awesome inspiration projects over at My Sheri Crafts.  The team has made some beautiful things!!!!
