Happy Thoughts of You

Buttons and Bows is the theme for the challenge at Classy Cards N Such  this week.  For those of you who know me well, you know I like pink and I couldn't resist using it in this challenge.

I used the Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight for my decorative frame.  I used the Spellbinders Scallop Ovals along with a regular oval die from the  Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight and stamped the sentiment from the  Impression Obsession Anytime Sentiments on the top oval.  I had these little black card stock buttons in my stash  and put pink card stock behind them.  I added pearls to my frame and a black lace bow.


We invite you to join us for this challenge.  We would love to see your card with buttons and bows.

Squigglefly Challenge - Make a Round Card

Things are going round and round over at the Squigglefly challenge blog.   ~grin~  Well, they are asking everyone to make a round card this week.   I chose to use the Squigglefly  image
"Giraffe Headshot"  by Inid Barnes.  I love Enid's animal images.  They are done in an artistic technique called pointillism.  They are really easy to color, too.   I hope you will join us for our challenge this week.

Thanks,  for stopping by today.

Classy Cards N Such, - Beach Time Fun

Here is my card for the Classy Cards 'n Such challenge , which is a beach theme. I made a box card. These boxes are really cool. They fold up and fit nicely in an envelope without any extra postage.


I cut the card along with the beach embellishments. I used Simple Stories Vintage Bliss Paper along with Kraft card stock.
I put the box together using 1/4" Scor-tape. I took a stencil brush and dabbed it with ink from my ink pads to highlight the flip flops, the sun and the cloud.
I attached my designer paper to the box then I used a Quickie Glue Pen to attach the beach embellishments. The beach ball is attached to acetate so it looks like it is flying through the air. I then took white sheer ribbon and wrapped it around my trusty fork to make the bow. The final touch to the box card was to add the scripture.

Speedy Fox Challenge - Acrylic Block Stamping

The Speedy Fox Challenge this week is to make a card or project using an acrylic block to stamp the background.   I chose to use a 7 X 1 in. acrylic block so I could make a scene with my background.  I heavily misted my acrylic block and I stamped it on water color paper.   I used a oval punch to make the bow.   I used the Mark's Finest Paper stamps "A trip to Lancaster".

Be sure to get out your acrylic blocks and get to stamping.  We want you to join us for this challenge.

Thanks, for stopping by today.

Watch Out For Those Chickens

 The CCEE Stampers challenge this week is "Watch out for those Chickens". This is the first time I have used this stamp and have had it for many years. What was I thinking? :)

I love the title of this challenge. When my daughter was about 4 yrs ago, she was looking out the window at me as I was learning to ride a motorcycle. Her grandparents told me what she said-"Watch out for those chickens". It was so funny because there were no chickens around. There must have been a very imaginative story going through her little mind.

Thanks, for coming by and taking a look at my chicken card.
