Classy Cards N Such - Cloudy Day Challenge

The challenge at Classy Cards N Such this week has the theme of a Cloudy Day.  There is an inspiration picture to look at, as well.  The picture had gray clouds and I have seen enough of them so I wanted pretty blue clouds for my card.  I used the Memory Box Madera corner to make my vines.
The top two flowers were made with a Cheery Lynn Fringe die. I also used the IO Birdhouse set,
Poppy Stamp Country Fence IO Small Grass BorderSue Wilson Filigree Bow and birds from the IO Birch Tree die.  I used a cloud template to sponge the clouds and the small flowers were made with a punch.  The paper I used for the bird houses were made with Glitz Vintage Blue Paper.

If you have any questions on my card,  please feel free to send me an email.

Have a great week.

Speedy Fox and Friends - Use Only The Center

The theme for the challenge at Speedy Fox and Friends this week is to use the center only.
 I use a MFP Stamp Shop stamps "Calendar" and "Chill in the Air".  The sentiment is from the
 "Tis the Season" stamp set.

I hope you will come over to the Blog and join us for this challenge.

This will be my last post on the Speedy Fox and Friends team.  I have enjoyed doing the challenges for the past 2 1/2 yrs.   I just need more time to do fun things with my grand-children.  They are growing up way too fast.  The baby is already two years old.  I will remain on the MFP Senior team so you will see my posts for it next week. 

Have a great weekend.

Classy Cards N Such - Cherry Blossoms - Feel Better Friend

The Classy Cards N Such Challenge this week was to make a card with either Cherry Blossoms or Dogwoods.  I love them both, but decided to go with the Cherry Blossoms.   I love making clouds so I used my cloud template and blue ink on the white cardstock that I used a Spellbinders die to cut before I sponged, leaving the paper in the die as I sponged.  I used a  Impression Obsession branch die to attach my punched cherry blossoms to after I used the Paper Blossoms Tool Kit to shape my flowers.  I attached my cherry blossoms to the branch using Art Institute Clear Adhesive.  I used Graphic 45 paper to cut the umbrella from.  I attached it using Joy Foam Pads to pop it up on my card.

I really enjoyed making this card and I hope you have enjoyed seeing it.

For more details on my card please visit the blog.

Classy Cards N Such - Masculine Birthday Card

Hi, stampers.  I wanted to share a card I made for Classy Cards N Such.   I am always in need of a masculine birthday card and usually I have none in my stash.    I used Graphic 45 paper, which is one of my favorite brands.  You probably have already figured that out from previous posts of mine.   This card was pretty easy using the Memory Box Party Music die and the Impression Obsession Greeting sett die.  I needed to dress the card up a bit so I used silver glitter paper hoping to give it more of a festive look. 

Thanks so much for taking a look at my card.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Speedy Fox and Friends # 258 - Only Black and White

It is time for another Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge.  Today we are to use black and white only.  I love black and white cards.  I almost used a flower, but decided that this sun from the
MFP Stamp Shop called "'Sun and Moon" would cute in black and white.
