Are you all ready for another FOSTV Challenge.
 This week is and easy peasy one, Sparkle.
Using the pansy image from the Sending Happy Thoughts Set 
for this one.After coloring it I used black stickles for the 
black center. Its layered onto the yellow. The little jewels
 and the jewel butterfly also add to my sparkle. The dp 
used for the border also has sparkle on the stripes. A little 
embossing , layers and stitching to show off the image.

Our TTSTV  Challenge this week is brought to us by  Lagene and it is call Spirelli. 
 Another first for me. This was a fun one so hop over and give it a try. I cut out 
a Spellbinder Scalloped Oval so my string would have some teeth to grab onto. 
As you can see I started around a second time and decided to stop so one end is
 doubled. I used some Pink Lemonade dp for the background and then cut out 
a white frame with a Spellbinders Scalloped Square. The sentiment is from the
Island Life Set and cut our with a Spellbinders 
Floral Oval and foam dotted on. A little flower for some
 added embellishment and it is done.

Happy Happy Friday to you all!!
 The challenge  TTSTV this week is making a puzzle 
background. It is brought to us by Pat. I didnt want
to make mine different colors so just used
one piece of kraft and used the diamond plate embossing
 folder first then cut it up into pieces. Using some ink I darkened all 
the edges so they would be more noticiable
then adhered them all the my card base.The images
cover up several of the pieces, it did look more
 puzzle like before I added the. I love these old vintage images, 
arent they great!  This is one of the new June Releases Classic Dad you can now
 find at the Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Co. Store. Colored cut out
 and added to the mats. Pretty quick and easy Fathers Day card
 for my dad!.Come join the fun
the winner will receive a free stamp set.
Hope you all have a great weekend!

Seems like the weeks are rushing by doesn't it. I'm hoping they
continue to rush right thru summer!! It has been crazy hot here, like 120 degrees!!
The plants, animals and myself all have our tongues hanging out.
A sweet blog buddy Lisa from A Mermaids Crafts sent me this wonderful 
My Minds Eye paper pad so thats what I have used this week. I like the
 retro feel of the papers, fun dont you think... After some stitching and a little 
inking on the edges I stamped and cut out the apple image.

It is from the Lesson Learned Set. The sentiment is 
from the  Birds and Trees Set. A little decorative corner and buttons 
finish it off. Life is extremely complicated with too much
 stuff right now so Im into fast and simple cards! 

We would love to have you stop by and join the challenge this 
week and the winner will take home the Festive Mini Wreath.

Corn Ears mini stamp set
  Seems life as been way to complicated lately which would mean a quiet
 get away would certainly be my choice, so I have used one of the
 scenes from Island Life. A pretty cas card this week.
 After coloring the image and a
  little embossing all was stitched together and a little button added. 
You will love my teammates creations this week so stop
 by and give them a encouraging word!
One more thing I took the pic a little crooked giving the illusion that
the striped piece is crooked, I measured its not.I know I
should take another but frankly just toooo tired!
