OK, now here's my card for the Hop!  The image is from Ginger Loft and it's appropriately called Musical Clown.  Printed and colored digi with colored pencils.  Embossed the back ground on plain red paper with a Cuttle bug folder. Edged the white card base with red Marvy ink pad.  Glued musical background and digi image down with glue stick.  Then I added the music note sticker and black bling, all from recollections.
Made me think of someone singing Happy Anniversary...........

Birthday Card for a friend

Morning all.  Made a quick card yesterday for sweet dear friend's birthday, she loved it.... I used a pocket template from another dear friend, Deloris, in my card group and printed it on Denim look paper added some faux stitching and glued to card base, cut small denim square and stamped Happy Birthday with some more stitching and glued in place.  Then glued the flowers and feathers as if popping out of the pocket.  And of course some bling on the pocket and card corners.  Touched up the card edges with blue Marvy ink pad. There you have it......

 Afraid that's all I have for today. off to do a bit of house stuff I have neglected, YUK house work, but someone has to do it right!  Thanks for popping by have a great day.

Until next time,

DT Post for Challenge #51 - All About Dogs

Hello everyone.  Soo this week's DT post and Challenge over at CWLC Blog is "For dogs".  Your creations need to have something to do with dogs. Our wonderful sponsor this week is Stamp N Doodle.  And the digi image I used from them is called "A dogs work is never done."   I colored the image of the mice and dog with colored pencils and then backed with some bazzill paper to match then attached this onto a white card base.  Made the sentiment with a Spellbinders tag and used yellow chalk to highlight a bit around the words. attached with foam dots then I sprayed a very light layer of pearl shimmer mist all over card front.  After it dried I put on the cute summer beach accessories with foam dots.  And that's it all done.  Hope you like it and hope your staying cool where ever you are today.   Hope to see your creations over on the challenge site.

Have great Monday.

Unitl next time,
 Stay Cool......

Summer Birthday Card

Happy Monday all.  Just popping in to share a card I made for a friend in a card group I belong to.  I am unsure where I got this digi from.  I know a card making friend sent it to me but when I filed it it away a managed to forget to mark who sent it and where it was from. Sorry.  I do love this cute cat though....

I am entering this card in a few challenges too.

Until next time

DT Post for CWLC Blog - #50 Anything Goes

Happy Monday Crafty Friends.  I'm back with another DT Challenge post for Created With Love Challenges Blog.  This is one of my favs card actually, not sure why except that I love green....Anyway this week our sponsor was Bugaboo Stamps and This challenge, #50 is "Anything Goes".  And the image I rec'd is called "Love Conquers All".  I printed the digi off and added just a bit of color to the flowers and the butterflies with Copics .  Then I matted my white card with black and green bazzill card stock scraps & attached the digi with double sided tape.  Oops,I also added some green polka dot and striped washi tape to the green card stock before adding the digi. Then I decided of course it needed more pop, I love my bling!!. So I added the bow and attached with glue dot. Then I thought how about some bling, on went the pearl flourishes.  And I know you it is not visible in the picture but I did add a very light mist of Pearl Shimmer spray.  And viola, it's done.  Hope you like it. 
Alrightie, that's all I have right now for you.  Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to say hello and tell me how your doing and what your up to.  Have a wonderful week.

Until Next Time,
Tootles all
