DIGISTAMPS4JOY NEW RELEASE

Hello There Crafty Friends!
  I want to share a card with you all that I made using a new release at...
 
I learned something interesting with this image called 'Bulrushes'...
I call them 'cattails' and have liked the look and texture of them since I was a child.
It is so neat how we use different names for the same thing. 
 I also learned that they are widely used for weaving - so of course I think "Crafty"
I have always wanted to weave and there's some not far from my home. :)
One thing important about them is they can be grown as an aid to water purification.

I wanted to keep this card CAS as I think they look lovely as they are.

IMAGINE THAT DIGISTAMP INSPIRATION

Hi There Crafty Friends,
I want to share a card I made with you all.
It's for the weekly inspiration at...IMAGINE THAT DIGISTAMP!

I love cows and think these are the cutest, so just had to make something with them.
 I guess I do need to say that I love cows as long as they are not getting in the garden (walking all over the veggies and eating what they want), not coming up on your front porch and for sure not walking through the kids swimming pool and making holes it in, lol. When my son was around 4yrs old he would stand at the gate and call them in...now that was a sight to see, cows coming from the field to greet him, lol.

...Here's the inside...
Such an adorable sentiment, perfect for this card.

DIGISTAMPS4JOY CHALLENGE #144

Hello Crafty Friends,
We have a new challenge starting today over at
  The theme for this challenge is...
Anything Goes with a Twist 'Favorite Color Combination'

I have a few favorite color combos but really like pink and black together, so that is what chose for theme. I think the image I used for my card is so beautiful and peaceful looking.
She loves her kitty and is trying to get it to eat but it looks like kitty wants to play instead, lol.
So very precious!

I have seen so many beautiful cards with different colored papers cut to sit side by side. I have been wanting to try it, so this is my result. Took me a bit to get it to match up correctly all the way around, not sure how I goofed on the cutting, lol. I couldn't find any patterned paper to work with the image, so decided to make my own. I used an embossing folder on the papers, then cut them in half.
Okay, now I just have to tell on myself. I made a big goof, nothing new for me, lol. I was happily putting tape on the wrong side of one of the papers, uh oh, ugh. That tape sticks really well and as long as it took me to get those papers to work together, no way was I going to do it over again. So I added tape to the wrong side of all the papers and they are 'Debossed' instead of 'Embossed', lol. My hubby made me feel better, he said "I Like It That Way", oh cool, now I am happy. :) 
I added Scotch Foam Mounting Tape on back of the image to make it stand out more.

...Products Used...
Marco Raffine Colored Pencils
Darice Embossing Folder 'Crackle'
Scotch Foam Mounting Tape
Unbranded Frame Die
Flatback Pearls
Plus Tape Runner
Ad-tech Crafter's Precision Glue
Pink/Black/White Cardstock

And that's my DT card.
  Hope you like it and it gives you some inspiration.
Hope you come join us in the fun!

AURORA WINGS DT

Hello There Crafty Friends,
I saw that Aurora Wings is having a DT call. I am so happy I saw that!
I love Mitzi's beautiful images and had a few already printed out just waiting for me.
So I got to working on the card today and want to share it with you all.

...Here's the one I chose to use this time 'Poppy Elf'...
I think she is so very beautiful and so is her flowers! 
I didn't have poppy's to add with her but thought the red flowers I had would work.
Using a rectangle frame die, I cut out the image, then fussy cut around the flowers on top of her head.
After I glued the gauge and flowers on, I thought it needed red pearls. It was actually an accident the way the small pearls got placed below the large butterfly on the paper. It made it look like a trail the butterfly had flown. So I added one more pearl to make it look like it came from the flowers.
