SUMMERTIME MEMORIES

Hello Again Crafty Friends,
While making this card I was remembering all the fun I had as a child chasing and catching lightning bugs/fireflies. I remember the fun times we had at my step-mom's parent's cabin at the lake. There were always a lot of lighting bugs during the Summer nights. I miss those wonderful times and all the fun we had there. We had lighting bugs where I lived at the time, though not as many. Then when I was 19 when we moved to the country, you could see them light up a field. That is what my children grew up seeing as well. There aren't any in Washington, so my hubby has never seen one in person. That makes me feel sad, though I did find some videos online to show him. To me it's another one of God's wonderful creations.

Okay, I have reminisced enough, lol. So here's my card...
 Here's what I used to make this card...

FOR FAMILY FUN

Hello Dear Crafty Friends,
Welcome to the new followers, it means a lot to me!
I want to share two cards with y'all that I made for my sister-in-law and her hubby.
They are always there for my hubby and I whenever we need them. And being they are old enough to be our parents, I just had to make funny cards...besides who doesn't like funny cards, lol. Oh, in case you're wondering, this is my hubby's big sis, actually his only sister. She and her friends like to get together for girls night, so this is the perfect image for her...
This image kinda reminds me of my brother-in-law. Although he is constantly working, even with an illness, he just keeps going and going. I just had make this card for him...
Also, for you Seattle Seahawk Fans - like they both are, I made sure to use the colors.
Go Hawks!

Both of these awesome images are from Bugaboo Stamps...

I hope that you enjoy seeing the cards I made. 
Thank you for visiting. :)
Happy Crafty Hugs!

SCRIBBLES DESIGNS CHALLENGE #54 HOLIDAY HOOPLA

Hello Crafty Friends,
We have a new challenge going on over at...
http://buyscribblesdesigns.blogspot.com 
 The theme for this challenge is...
Holiday Hoopla 
Goal: Create any type of holiday card
Here's my inspiration card for the challenge...
Here's what I used to make my card...
 Digistamp '#717 Groundhog' By: Scribbles Designs
Sentiment Created In PSP
Marco Raffine Colored Pencils
Yellow Napiko 2 Marker
The Paper Studio 4.5"x6.5" 'Mirabelle' 
Forever In Time 3D Pop Dots
  Brown/Yellow Cardstock Papers
Paper Flower Sticker
Here's what I did...
After making the card with brown paper, I cut the patterned paper to fit in the center of it. I rotated the paper slightly right and taped it to the card. Next I cut a piece of yellow paper to frame behind the image and taped it on. Then taped the image onto the left side of the card. I cut another piece of the yellow paper to frame behind the sentiment and taped it on. Then taped that rotated right on the right side of the card, slightly over the image...I also used pop dots on the right side of it to bring it out farther. Next I added the flower to the card and used a yellow pencil to draw some lines and color over the white petals. Then colored the pearl on top the flower with a yellow marker.

And that's my DT card. 
I hope you like it and it will give you some inspiration.
Come on and join us in the fun!

CRAFTING BY DESIGN GDT

Hello There Crafty Friends,
I am so excited and honored! I was asked to be a Guest Designer for...
I was one of their April Spotlight Winners. So excited to have been chosen!
The theme for their challenge is...
Black, White and One Other Color 

Here's my card using this beautiful image...
Here's what I used to make it...
Digistamp 'Lilly' By: SheepSki Designs
Marco Raffine Colored Pencils
Unbranded Frame Die and Corner Die
Flatback Pearls
White/Black Cardstock Papers

As you can see on the image, my one other color is blue. Which I even used on her face. :) 

I made the card with black cardstock paper. I used the frame die to cut out an opening in the font of the card. Then I taped the image on the inside of the front flap. Next I cut white cardstock paper to cover over the whole inside of the card and over the image. Then I glued the corner die cuts on and the flatback pearls.

And that's my GDT card. 
I hope you like it and it will give you some inspiration.
Come on and join in the fun!

Happy Crafty Hugs,
