While blog hopping today I saw a LO page with these colors, and wanted to try the same color combo. I remembered I had this PP left from a card a made a while back, and thought it would be perfect. The daisy image is a digi stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy. I colored just the center with yellow marker, and used a grey marker for the stems and leaves. I added some glitter to part of the petals. I trimmed it down, and layered onto black CS. I layered the PP onto a black CS base, and layered the image into that. I was going to put it straight on, but thought the tilted CS looked a little different. Last I added the yellow ribbon and bow.
Well, that is all for now. I hope to spend some of my holiday weekend (Memorial Day in the USA) doing some crafting to share with you too. I also finished my DH's father's day gift and will try to get that posted today or tomorrow. I have to find a time to sneak it upstairs to photograph it...I can't have him see it yet...lol. Have a great day!
I stamped the fishes on white CS and cut them out. They are from an old SU set that I have had for a couple years now and honestly say I don't know the last time I used it if ever at all...lol. I colored the fish with colored pencil...notice the bottom right one is green and all the others are orange. I hand wrote the sentiments "Dare to be Different". I thought this would be a good encouragement type card, or just a general thinking of you type card. I also thought of sentiments like "Go against the flow", "Different is good", and "There is always one in the group that has to stick out." Last thing I did was add some stickles to the felt waves as well as the fish's fins. Now...it is YOUR turn! Head on over to the Creative Belli Challenge and see what flat embellishments the other DT ladies found. Then create your own using the sketch and flat embellishments and link them up to the Belli Challenge #92. Thanks for stopping by!

Morgan used a bird on a branch stamp from SU. She colored it with markers, and cut it out. She picked a blue piece of Coordinations CS for the base, and picked the flower embossing boarder. I then taught her the cool trick to using Coordinations CS...sanding to bring out the base color. She really liked playing with that, and even did some sanding to the edges too. She layered that onto a brown pre-cut scalloped card I got from SU a couple years back. We found some brown with blue dots ribbon in my stash to add to it. Then she learned how to set eyelets with the crop-a-dile, and added a little blue flower brad. Last I showed her how cool white gel pen looks on dark CS. She added some little dots, and traced the scallops onto the bottom layer/inside of the card too. I thought she did a pretty good job, and actually love her brown and blue color scheme too.
If your kids want to play along, they have until the end of the month to play along with the NATURE theme. There will be a new theme for June...Thanks Little Hands Do Crafts for such a great challenge blog!

As you can see I punched holes and added some eyelets I have had laying around. I used this great digi image from our sponsor Sew Many Cards called Olliver the Owl Celebrates. I colored him with colored pencils and added some crystal effects to his balloon. (A little hard to see from the photo, but I wanted a shiny balloon.) The sentiment is from the same digi set. I added a little blue eyelet (hole) to the "i" in birthday too. This is a very CAS card, but I thought it was perfect for a man...which is who I had in mind when making this. My FIL's birthday is this month, and I thought a nice simple card was perfect for him.
We would love to see your "holey" cards too, so be sure to play along with this week's Belli Challenge and link your creations so we can see your take on hole punches.

I really wanted to use my create a critter cricut cartridge, and I thought the monkey was perfect for these colors. I thought it came out pretty cute, and was so excited that I was able to complete the challenge. I even got a prize for completing it! I won a free crop night...which I hope to be able to use soon.
I was thrilled to come home from such a great day with some accomplishments. I was able to finish all of January and February in my 2010 Year in Review album. I also got some of the stuff ready to put together the teacher's gifts for end of the school year. They turned out ADORABLE too...I will post them when I get them all done...only 6 more to go! Well thanks for stopping by, and I hope all you moms, grandmas, and aunts out there had a wonderful mother's day.

Well that is them! Hope they like/liked them as much as I like the way they turned out. Happy Mother's Day to all of my blog readers too!

I used this cute birthday hat image from Sweet 'n Sassy Digi stamps. I colored it in with colored pencils. I layered him and another square onto some PP from SU...which is really old, so I couldn't tell you the collection it was from if I tried...lol. I stamped the sentiment on the 2nd square and added some little cupcakes (which I colored and added red stickles to the cherries). I rounded the corners of the squares and added some diamond stickles to the birthday hat.
Well be sure to stop by the Simon Says Challenge blog to see all the great DT samples as well as enter your own card.
So she said she wanted purple butterflies. She then "colored" them with colored pencils. She picked some garden printed paper to layer it onto. Last she cut out her butterflies with some scalloped scissors. Not to bad for a 3 year old...ha ha.
Thanks for looking, I know it means a lot to my girls to share their creations like mom does.

I colored Sow Leah with colored pencils, and layered onto some light purple CS. I added some floral PP from TAC, and last some gromlets. I have never used gromlets before, but had some on hand so I thought I would try them out. Interesting little gadgets...ha ha. Well that is all for now and be sure to stop by the Whimsie Doodles Blog to check out their DT ladies blog hop too.

This was my first time using flower soft. I really like the way it turned out on here. Last thing I did was add the sentiment, which is from TAC.
Well that is all for now. Now I need to get this in the mail....lol...I am so bad at mailing out cards.
I found this chalkboard paint at my LCS, and added it to these little wooden heart plaques. We will be adding some sentiment to the top banner part, just haven't gotten that far yet...lol.
