A Tisket, A Tasket

Have you gotten your image from Hambo for this weeks challenge? Did you play last week? If not you can buy this weeks image from the Hambo store and play to get your free image next week. This week it is a cute basket just plum full of hearts. A nice sentiment is included with the image. The requirements...use both image and sentiment, add some lace and flowers.
Here is my card;

For the lace I used a paper doily that I distressed with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink. I also used this on all the dp and card stock papers used. My flower is one from my stash I bought at Hobby Lobby. Oops, can you see the drip on the top heart. I forgot I had added more glossy accent. Oh well, it'll look great after it dries. Some hearts have the glossy accent, some stickles.

Happy Crafting,

Fluttering by

Happy Monday Challenge has a new challenge-Fellowship. The challenge is to make a card for an elderly person you know. They, like us all, need to have people checking in on them. So my card is a HI card, using a Deedee image. The sentiment I made from Microsoft Word. I colored the flowers with Copics and the buterfly with Sharpies and Bic markers. Stop your elderly neighbor and just say HI!

Happy Crafting,

April 25

It was a good card day yesterday. Here is a group picture, then I'll break it down per challenge. First I forgot to include a pinwheel card I made...:( It is pretty to!
The bottom two and the pink/black one on the right are not for challenges. Well, the brown one could be OWH mid week monochromatic challenges as well as the Sunday's sketch challenge. OK two of them aren't challenge related. I CASEd Dixie on the upper right one.
First challenge...KING Hambo! I didn't have a cuttlebug embossing folder I wanted to use, so I scored the yellow paper on my Martha Stewart scor board in a diamond design. The purple heart button is a glitter button that I sealed with Glossy Accents. Got that tip from Yolanda's blog. Thanks Yolanda!!
The next challenge is for D2D- Bullfrogs and Butterflies. When I first saw this, I thought blue and yellow for the flowers. Why? I don't know, it kinda looks "Dutch" to me, now that it's done. But I like it.  I added the corner flowers also included in the set, FREE, if you played in the progressive challenge last week. Mr Bull has googley eyes, the two big flowers have bling in the middle, the corner flowers have glossy accent and I added a blue butterfly button.
Here's hoping we all don't float away in the mid west area.
Happy Crafting.
