It's ANYTHING GOES OVER AT THE OUTLAWZ http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/monday-greetings/forum/topics/greetings-challenge-anything-goes-gcc022916 . Head on over to see all the talent!! 

For my take on Anything Goes is this Door Hanger for my new grand son Ethan. You can't really see that there is some darker blue in the water too but this is the best snapshot I could get. I love 3-D as always, lol.  I have made the girl one which you may have already seen, so now I add a boy one. Hope you like and have a beautiful day.

Christina's Hand Drawn Little Girl

Today I'd like to show you the card I made for my dearest friend Christina Hor. This is a hand drawn digi by her. Make sure to stop over her blog to see what others have done with this "Free Digi".  It is only available until February 29th so GRAB it while you can.   http://memoriescrafter.blogspot.com  and make sure to look around in the blog, as this is one wonderful artist. All her cards are fabulous!!

 I printed out my digi and used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Timeless Rectangle die, in purple. Then I traced it out on a piece of green paper and hand cut it out, placed it behind the die cut frame. I colored the girl using ciao copics and then cut her in a rectangle using a pair of decorative scissors. Christina's little girl also came with the sentiment "Sending Hugs".  To finish it off I added some white pearls. Hope you like and Thank You for stopping by.

Made at Laura's Class

I also made another card for a friend who lives down state from me.  We have been friends since we were 5 years old. We had lost touch for many years but about 10 years ago we found each other again and of course we didn't have a problem refreshing our friendship. We are both horse crazy so we send each other little things that have to do with it.
I got the background free from the internet. The stamp came from Serendipity Stamps and is 1364-Cowgirl. I colored with copics.
Inside the sentiment is a Penny Black sentiment from "sprinkles and smiles". I placed it on a frame from Spellbinders (Card Creator) A2 "Valiant Honor" and last, the boots. They are from in'spire by Spellbinders called "Cowgirl Stomp" This special card is featured on Outlawz Challenges I hope you enjoy.


All About Spring

Over at "The Outlawz Challenges" we are saying good bye to a wonderful artist and Design Team Member and very close friend of mine. She has been not only an inspiration to the team and followers but also to me in my personal life. I am so grateful that we will continue our friendship forever. She is very special to me and will always be.

For the challenge on the Outlawz Challenges, Monday Greetings I have chosen "Fairy Tender HeartF" from Tiddly Inks as my "All About Spring" Challenge. I've used quite a few dies on this card (just sayin). The pink and blue flowers were made from Sizzix Bigz Die, Flowers, 3-D, The branches of leaves scattered is from Impression Obsession DIE055-N, I cut her out with the Stitched Circles from Gina Marie Designs and put a scalloped circle under that from Spellbinders Nestabilities. The birdcage and birds are from Whimsy Stamps called Bird Cage die set, the flourish is from Memory Box and it is called Whimsical Flourish and the back piece of the card which covered in pattern paper (from who knows where!) is from Spellbinders Shapeabilities Bow Elegance. The little trim of flowers at the bottom is from our Wal Mart store. I colored in copics. I thank you so much for stopping by.

Valentine 4

Today I will be mainly shoveling because we got some of the snow from the storm so I thought I would show you a card that my class instructor showed us how to make on Tuesday.  Isn't this the nicest card. I just love it. It has all kinds of texture. It's stamped and embossed too. This class is so much fun!
I won't be posting every day for now because I cannot make a card everyday as I make my cards "full" or "detailed" or it just takes a lot of time! lol So I will post on Monday's with a card from the Monday Challenge Greetings at Outlawz and every other Tuesday from my class. Thank You all very much for stopping by.

My Birthday Cake

Have you ever heard someone say: NAILED IT!! Well on Pinterest they have a funny one going around. They show a picture of what they are going to try to make. Say like marshmallow snowmen. So when you are done making yours (which look horrible! The marshmallow melted and his nose fell off, things like that) you take a picture of yours next to the product picture. Well here is mine!! LOL!! It's my birthday cake!! The box is right next to my cake. It's "Pink Camouflage" Cake.


Valentine 3

Just a quick one today as I am very busy. It is my BIRTHDAY!! Hope you all are having a great day. The ground hog here did not see his shadow so out he came. LOL

Today I'd like to share with you a Valentine card I made. I matted pink and black, then die cut out the labels eight by Spellbinders in white. I stamped hugs and kisses on that.  Then tied a gingham ribbon around it and glue it all on a white card.  I stamped 4 happy hearts with hugs and kisses on them, put on pop dots and layered them on the card. Done! Thank you all so very much for stopping by. Hope you all are having a great day!

Love is in the Air

Today I entered the Monday Greetings Challenge over at The Outlawz Challenges. You should come over and take a look. We have some pretty darn good looking cards to inspire you! Go to: www.outlawzchallenge.ning.com . It was called "Love is in the Air".

Today I used one of the Magnolia digi's that I have because she is throwing hearts, thus love is in the air! LOL I colored her with copic markers (please excuse, I'm still learning) and die cut her out using Gina Marie Design Dies. I used the rectangle with the stitches. Next I die cut out the Spellbinders Bow Elegance. I did the background in white and the design on top. Then I placed her on top. I made some flowers from Memory Box called Fabulous Phlox. I then die cut out some branches from Impression Obsession DIE055-N and stuck them here and there. Then I die cut out from Memory Box the Whimsical flourish. I cut it in half and place one under the top flower and the other under the last flower. Last but not least I die cut some butterflies from Stampin Up Thinlets. and placed them on the card. Hope you like and Thank You for stopping by.
