Love to Create Clean & Layered #123

Hello everyone.  I am so excited to tell you that I was asked to be a guest designer for Love to Create.   The challenge this time is Fussy & Fancy or Clean & Layered. The sponsor is ArtbyMiran.  I was given this beautiful image called Lillian to work with.  I decided Clean & Layered would be the way to go with this one.  The matted layer is popped up, the image is popped, the bottom row of flowers is popped up and I cut the bow off of the original image and layered actual ribbon instead.
As I type this I am celebrating the 4th of July with my family.  I traveled from Ohio to Kentucky to be with them.  My beautiful great niece, Bailey, said she wanted this card.  I brought some cards down with me and I gave my niece and her husband 3 cards.  I brought Bailey one that she had previously picked out from my blog.  She saw the other 3 cards and was upset that she only got one.  She looked at my cards and said this one was hers and she wanted 2 more so that she would have the most.  She is 5.  I just love her.
I hope you like the card and I hope you check out Love to Create and ArtbyMiran.  Thanks to LTC for allowing me to create with them and thank you for stopping by.  Have a great day.

Corrosive Challenge #203 Forever Young

Welcome to my blog.  If you are here for the first time, thanks so much for checking out my blog.  If you have been here before, thanks for coming back. It is time for the new Corrosive Challenges challenge which is Forever Young.  All you need to do is create a project for a baby, child or just the young at heart.  Our sponsor is A&T Designs, home of the Emerald Fairies.  I was given this adorable image called Isabella to work with.  She is so cute.
One of my nieces recently moved and she has three small children.  I thought I would send this to them when they get all settled in their new home.  They love to get mail.  I cut Isabella out and popped her up.  I added googly eyes as an inside joke for my cousin Candy who reads my blog.  I couldn't help myself.
Please head over to Corrosive Challenges and check out what the rest of the design team has created for your inspiration.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

KennyK Challenge #175 - Dots & Stripes

Happy Almost 4th of July!!! It is time for another fabulous challenge from KennyK's Krafty Krew.  It is the usual drill...Anything Goes with a Twist.  Our twist this time is Dots & Stripes.  3 digis to the winner, 5 if you incorporate the twist.  Also, the top 3 get a digi each.  All the details are posted on the KennyK's Krafty Krew blog.

For my project, I made a Step Block Card.  I found the instructions on YouTube.  It is from Dawn's Stamping Thoughts.  The link is here.  I am using Fourth of July from KennyK Downloads.  Since I had already colored this before I saw Dawn's video, I flipped the card around because my image fit better this way.  My stripes are on the image and I added gems to the flourishes for my dots.  FYI, the green on the top flouish isn't really green.  The paper was shiny silver and I was wearing a green shirt when I took the picture.  I hope you like it and I hope you join us for the challenge. Please head over to KennyK's Krafty Krew and check out what the rest of the design team created for your inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
