Wishes for you

Another card for this challenge at D2D, I got the image from CDAC (on the front of the card). The stamp inside is from Stampabilities. I used some Glossy accents on the bee, and the butterfly.

It's a Z fold card. Very much a Spring card.

 An open view of the card. I'm including a blank cardstock backed by the purple card stock and has corners made from the flower paper. I'll use the card for OWH servicemen/women.

MelJen Challenge 43

Use a heart...I can do that. I'm done with Valentine, but a card can always use a heart. I choose two images of Melissa's to use on the card. Then picked the dp I wanted to use. Once I had the images colored using colors from the dp I realized it would be too much of a good thing. hmm, so I have another dp as the main background paper and then just a strip of the original dp running down the middle. It had to be a rather wide strip to show all the colors on it. Hope ya like it. No sentiment so the user (OWH) can use card as they please.

D2D challenge 1/21

Wow, I usually have this challenged done before now. Good thing I checked to see if I had completed it or I would have missed out on the next image. Every Friday,for those who participate in the weekly challenge, we receive a free image from Faith at Designed 2 Delight. And I'm telling you, I don't want to miss out on that as her images are fantastic. I always look forward to seeing what's next. Thanks Faith!
I had a lot of fun deciding on how I was going to play with this weeks image, a teddy bear with a present. I ended up using not only that image but two other of Faiths, the Dino balloons and the Dino present. See what I did....

Cute, huh? Go on, get your image and play. Only a couple days left.

Anything *BUT* a card

 That is the challenge at Dude times currently (hurry, just a couple more days left). WELL I struggled with this challenge...what to make, how to make it?  I had ideas running thru my head but no direction. So I looked here and got way tooooo many ideas. I had to narrow it down and quickly, times a ticking.  Ahhh just what I was looking for! A box! This will hold 4.25x5.5 note cards and envelopes.

 Then I had to find a BDD image I could use, Mike to the rescue.
Poor Mike, he's embarrassed
Mike is just a small time mechanic. He can't figure out what is wrong with your car. Uh oh, he's a little pink in the face, being embarrassed.  But he's such a friendly guy you can't be too mad at him.
As you can tell by his coveralls, he does work hard.  hmmm lady maybe there's really NOTHING wrong with your car! LOL

I had a lot of fun with this challenge, it certainly pushed me out of my comfort zone. Still working on the note cards. Enjoy.

EDIT: The note cards will be two each of Grease Monkey Mike, Rough Night Rodney, Gift Bearer Gary. I thought some lucky lady can use the note cards to thank or say Hi to the men in her life.
