Welcome August....

Another month and the worst of summer will be over!!
Cooler evenings coming, and I can't wait. So here we are another
 new Friends of Speedy TV Challenge. A woven background is the challenge
 this week.My card is a pretty quick cas of sorts. My time has been very limited 
since I'm caring for my friends cat. He has to be fed and medicated 5 times a day. 
Im also taking care of her house, plants and other kitties while she is  gone for surgery. 
The fortunate perk is she is also my boss so I can leave work to do it. I do have 
to say  it  is a blessing to be able to help even if it keeps me extra busy.
I used three different dps in green for the woven part, sort of staggering
 them so they dont make a perfect square.. The Morning Glory image is 
from the Friends Set colored and cut out. The mat is a embossed 
Spellbinder Scalloped Circle. The butterfly was a punched one from a
 friend I embossed and added the antennae.  
The sentiment is from the  Tiger Lilies Set.
Do Stop by and check out all the other beautiful inspiration
my teammates have created!!

New Saturday Challenge

Good Morning Friends!! Today at Speedy TV and Friends 

we are challenging you to Doodle a Frame.
I have used the Hydrangea Image and taken a little liberty with it.
 I've never seen a peach colored Hydrangea but you are seeing one now! 
I used water color pencils and Copics to color the image.
 I have used a older scrap of Pink Paislee dp and a piece of 
some very cool recycled cardboard for a
  border. I wanted my frame to have a more vintage look 
that blended in with the dp instead of being bold. For that look
I doodled with a Stampin Up Soft Suede marker instead of black.
 A little stitching for embellishment and the Sentiment is
from the      Set  with a bit of doodling on it also.
This is such a fun and easy  Challenge I hope you 
all will hop on over and join us this week!! 
Also all my teamies did different things with this
Challenge so you can check out all their fabulous creations
to give you a little extra inspiration.

Whats your favorite color??

 All you need to join the Challenge at Speedy Fox and Friends 
this week is a piece of colored paper and some white embossing powder!!
 Additionally you are to high light your image. I have chosen to use a piece of 
maroon paper with my white powder. MY image is from the  Coneflower Set. After 
embossing the flowers I used the bleach method to high light my image.
 Interestingly as you can see from the close up above it turned it 
  an unexpected pale green!  A thin white mate to separate it
from the base. The borders were cut with the  
Spellbinder border die and stitched on. The center  was dry
embossed with the SU Square Lattice folder. The sentiment is
from the Friends Set was punched out with a
 Marvy circle and foam dotted on.
 Its quick and easy so join us this week!!

Happy 4th of July to my US Friends!

Today starts a new Challenge at Speedy Fox and Friends
The Challenge is to Cut Away Embossing and  no I didnt make a Patriotic card today,
 When making the card I forgot it was the fourth! For this challenge I used the trellis 
embossing folder and used a Spellbinder Edgeability Die to make my cut aways. The flowers are individual blossoms from the Hydrangea Set.First the Sentiment from the
 Rose Set was stamped onto the base then the embossed pieces were added. 
Next a little cheesecloth was added then the  blossoms and leaves were layered on top.
 Lastly the purple border was cut with two of the Spellbinder Edgeabilities and stitched on.
 A fun card with all kinds of possibilities. We would be so happy to have 
you stop by and join the fun this week.
 My teammates have lots of pretty inspiration for you too!!

Happy Tuesday to you all!!

Its that time again! A new Challenge at Tuesday Throwdown and team B's turn. 
Our Challenge is to Frame It and our sponsor is A Day for Daisys. They have lots 
of awesome images and have given us each one to work with. I love my beautiful
 image called Poppy In My Hair.After coloring my image I cut her out with a
 Spellbinder die. I used another Spellbinder to make a frame for her. 
The background was made with some paste and a Heidi Swapp  butterfly stencil. 
After letting the stencil dry I added several different inks . Although it doesnt 
show much of the background is the same green as the base of the card. 
A little stitching to attach it all. The Birthday sentiment was cut with a
Spellbinder Scalloped circle and foam dotted on. My talented teamies 
have lots of great Creations to inspire you. Stop by and join the fun
 and you may be the winner of some of the lovely A Day for Daisys images!!

Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge

Today at Speedy Fox and Friends we are
 Challenging you to make Die Cut Designs on your card or LO. 
 I make several different ones and just wasn't happy with them so finally decided
 on the stars. The stars were cut with the different sizes of Spellbinder Dies. I interlocked
 them, overlapped them and nothing seemed right so did the boring thing and just set them 
inside one another! A little ink added to give them a more worn look. The side border
die is also an overlapped  Spellbinder border die. A little stitching and the sentiment 
added to finish it up. My teammates have some very pretty and creative uses for 
the dies so check out the blog.
