Come join us over at Sewn Together! This weeeks challenge is to use one of your favorite images on the Sewn Together site. You can use one of the free images posted or purchase any of the great images she has on her site! The winner will receive three digital images of their choice from the Sewn Together store!

I don't know if I can say this is my favorite image, as I have sooo many that I just love, but as soon as I seen these two images, I knew what I wanted to do. The below digital images are of
Tayla the Tiger. Angela has soooo many cute images so be sure to check out Tayla as well as all her other cute characters!!

Card Front....Tayla was colored with Prismacolor Pencils, using the Gamsol technique. She was printed out 3 times and then I cut areas to layer. Taylas witches hat is embellished with 'Yellow' Stickles on the stars and 'Yellow' Ice Stickles on the band of the hat. Papers are from the DCWV Halloween Stack. Photo corners are free hand and then embellished with 'Grape Ice' Ice Stickles. 'Peek A' are some 3 dimensional letters I had laying around that I went over with 'Frosted Lace' Stickles. I used a piece of cord to make the string thats tied around Taylas tail
Inside of Card...Tayla once again was colored using Prismacolor pencils and the Gamsol technique. Layered multiple times to give Tayla a dimensional look of hanging out of the 'Boo'. Papers are also from the DCWV Halloween stack and then inked around the edges with black stamp pad. Pop up feature used on the Boo.



Thanks for looking!!


Did Tayla scare ya?

My new adventure...in the land of.....

I received an email Sunday from Angela telling me that I was one of those folks chosen for her new Design Team over at Sewn Together. I'm really excited since this will be my first Design Team and Angela has such cute images in her store. I can't wait to play with them. I've already got a few ideas for some Halloween cards, so I can't wait to share them with you and get your opinions on them! Be sure to check out our other great Design Team Members. Their blogs are in my right sidebar. Very talented women in our group, so I hope I don't let anyone down!

Happy Birthday....




I made this card tonight for my Father in laws birthday. It was totally inspired and cardlifted from Okie over at Okieladybug's Scrap N' More. Ever since Okie posted it on the Cricut MB last year, I knew I wanted to make this card, and who better for, than my father in law lol Thank you Okie for sharing your talents with all of us!

Ok...The mountains, mountains shadow, donkey, and rope was made from the Paper Dolls Dress Up Cricut cartridge. Sentiment was cut with the Base Camp Cricut cartridge. I'm not sure about the sizes because I used Design Studio to size, but the size of the card is 6 1/2in x 5in, if that helps any. The background paper is from the Debbie Mumm Baby Stack. I went over the clouds with white flock and used black flock on the mane and tail of the donkey. The eye, nose and hooves are accented with Glossy Accents. I went over the rope cut with Westrim Crafts Jute Packaging Twine.

Thanks for looking and hope you like!

Together Forever

Here's a card I made today for my nephew and nieces anniversary. It was totally inspired and lifted by Donna Mundinger from a card she posted on the CricutMB Card forum. Be sure to check out her blog, Popsicle Toes also!! Her work is awesome! Donna was nice enough to emboss the middle panel for me, and sent me more than enough for all the anniversaries in my future lol Thank you Donna!!
I tried to change it up a bit and make it my own, so it wasn't copied to the T...but hers was so beautiful I didn't want to stray far!
SU! Whisper white cardstock embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and the new Cuttlebug Frame Folder. DCWV paper between the two embossed panels. 'Together Forever' was done with a sizzix embossing folder that Donna was nice to share with me.
Flowers are by Prima, and then gold rhinestones to accent.
Hope I was able to do Donna's card justice!
Thanks for looking!
