Hello everyone,

It's Wednesday!  Another DT project for you from Whimsical Designs.
I just love being challenge every week with something different.  This week
I was excited because our challenge is an "ATC".  The reason I"m excited is
because I have not made one in a while and I forgot how much fun they are to
make.  So of course I went crazy and made two.  Yes!  Just got it out of my
system.  LOL   Here they are...

Ok so this one here is the one for this challenge.  I used paper from "Pink Paislee".
The image you see is from our sponsor this week.  SKdigis.   They let us choose an
image to work with and this cute little monkey was my choice.
I added some flowers from Wild Orchids and some goodies from my stash.
The sentiment is from the Whimsical Fun Vol.1 stamp set.
And of course both cards are at 2 1/2 X 3 1/2.

With this one here I used Graphic 45 paper "My Ladies Dairy"  The dress form 
is from Lindys.  I also used here some goodies from my stash and the sentiment
is from Whimsical Fun Vol. 1 as well.

And that is it for today.  This week our prize is from SKdigis and their prize
is a $6. voucher.
Hava a great day!  Thanks for coming by.  Let me know what you think.

Day Two ~ New Release for Just a few Designs

Hi and Welcome back to Day Two

How exciting!! I'm back with my 2nd project featuring my 2nd image.
I'm Sassy and I know it!!!!!
Yes!  That is our group name and I can't stop singing that!

Today I'm showing you the cutest little girl.  Her name is Abbie II.  
In case you missed yesterdays post just scroll down to the post before this one.  
My beautiful friend Elsa just released her own stamp set.  10 of them!
They are fun and beautiful.  They will all be available starting tomorrow.
I went ahead and created yet another card.  And, here it is...

I think she is adorable.  As soon as I saw her I though of a card for a sweet little girl.
And I made it happen.  I used the 6 x 6 paper pad "C'est la VIE" by Melissa Frances.
Flowers and ribbon is from Elsa.  The little baby in the cradle is a button I picked up
at Micheals.  Then I finished it off with some pearls from my stash.  I did color her
with my copics as well.  

I hope you take the time to see the other images and go over to Elsa's blog.  Tell her
I sent you and she will be picking a winner from my blog for a special prize.  She 
will also be giving away some kits with every purchase starting tomorrow.

Once again here is the link to the Sassy 6

Big hugs

Just a Few Desings ~ Day one ~ Stamp Release #1

Hello, hello

Today is a VERY big day!  I am so happy and very proud of my sweet and wonderful
friend Elsa from "Just a few friends".  She has been working very hard for this moment.  
And as her friend I am happy to share this wonderful news.  Elsa had created her 
very own stamps.  She has drawn all the images herself.  Today her Design Team 
named by her as the "The Sassy 6" are featuring some of her new stamps.  
There is a total of 10 stamps right now and more coming.  Today is day "one" of
her new release.  But, you want to come back tomorrow because tomorrow will
be day "two" of her new release and then...... Ready??  They will be available for 
you on Saturday June 22nd.

Elsa is having giveaways as well as card kits and
mini clear stamps.  You don't want to miss out.  The images are just beautiful.
Go to Elsa's blog and mention that I sent you.  She will be picking one winner
from each of our blogs for a prize.

Here is the card I made using one of the two images she sent me.
Her name is "Andrea's Halo."  I love her wild hair.  It reminds
me of my daughter when she had long hair like that.

For my card I use the Graphic 45 paper "Le Romantique."  As for the
embellishments they were from my stash and from Elsa who was so sweet to
send us a package.  Here is the link to my You Tube Video.
I really hope you liked my card and I hope you come
back tomorrow for "Day Two ~ First Release"

To be sure you see all 10 images you will want to check all our blogs in
the next 2 days.

Big hugs my friends!

WW Getting Patriotic

Happy Wednesday!!

I hope you all had a wonderful Father's Day.  My daughter and her hubby took
my hubby out to dinner on Saturday and then on Sunday they invited us for dinner.
So I guess it's safe to say he had a good weekend.

For our challenge this week with Whimsical Designs, Stephanie challenge us to make 
something patriotic and use the colors red, white and blue.  Our sponsor who is 
Eureka Stamps let us have an image for our project.  I picked "Liberty Balloon Holder".  
But as you can see I didn't use a balloon.  Actually I didn't even realize her name until 
now.  So just pretend, as my grand daughter would say, that you see a balloon.  
I think it would look cute. :-)  And here it is...

Everything that I used was from my stash.  Loose paper from Micheals or Joannes.
Stars are from recollection.  The light blue flower with the clear stone you see 
was made by Stephanie herself about a year ago when we participated in a swap 
together.  The sentiment is from her stamp set "Everyday Sentiments"

Our sponsor will be giving away 5 digis of the winners choice.
Good luck and I will be back soon with another project.

Beach Bum Lucky

Hello there

How are you all doing?  Today I want to share a simple card with you that
I created for my DT project with SNSC.  I decided to use Beach Bum Lucky
since it's hot out and a lot of people are thinking about the beach.  So, here is my
cute and simple sweet card. 

I used the 6 x 6 paper pad call "Sunshowers" by Heidi Grace.  The chipboard
embellissements are from Me and My big ideas.  I also added a piece of mesh that
I had in my stash. I did color Lucky with my copics and popped him
up with pop dots.  And so my sweet friends this is my simple card for today. :-)
I hope you are all enjoying your summer so far.
You Tube Video  for this card.

Stay safe and big hugs

Just A Few Friends Father's Day Blog Hop


How are you?  I hope the answer to that was great!! I am because I'm off today :-) Yay!
Today we are having our Father's Day card Blog hop with Elsa at Just a few designs.
Hopefully you started the hop with Elsa and now you're coming to me from Sherain.

Elsa challenged us this month to create a Father's Day card.  It was lots of fun discussing 
this in our  FB group since many of us have a hard time creating masculine cards.  For my 
cards I was inspired by my grand daughters.  Since I will be giving these to them to give 
away I decided to create through their eyes, if that makes any sense to you. 
 I know what they like and so this is what I came up with....

For the first one I used the 6 x 6 paper "Playdate" by MME.  I added some scrabble 
pieces to go with the sentiment which is a Fiskars clear stamp set.  On the second card
the first layer paper is from "On the bright side" also from MME.  The second paper is
from Tim Holtz.  I used a Bingo card and the sentiment is from Joanne's dollar bin.
The mustache is from Spare parts as well as the washi tape.  Then the scrabble pieces,
and two cards done for their Daddy and their Papa.  Here is my YT Video for details.

Since I am the last one on the line up, I want to thank you all for hopping 
along with us.  I hope that we all have inspired you in some way and that you had 
fun.  Maybe tag us and show us what you create.  And have a wonderful
Father's Day with those you celebrate with.

Hello there

How is everyone doing?  Here in Virginia we are enjoying our
Cicadas.  Yes, every 17 years they come out and they are very loud.  But
very interesting.  I know it's driving a lot of people crazy but I'm actually 
enjoying them.  I mean think about it, every 17 years.  That's pretty cool.  
Oh and did I mention as long as they don't touch me that it.  LOL

Today Stephanie at Whimsical Wednesday challenge
us to create something Vintage.  All she asked was for us to give it a Vintage feel.

I altered a small box using Graphic 45 paper "Le Romantique".
I used gold acrylic paint on the box and then Mod Podge to place the paper down.
I added a couple of flowers and added some gold glitter on the edges. Then I added
a Tim Holts ornate plate.  Inside the plate I added the sentiment "Sweet friend"
from the "Everyday Sentiments" stamp set.

Our Sponsor this week isScrapping Memories
The prize is 5 free files of winner's choice.

Thank you for dropping by.  I can't wait to see your Vintage creation.
Have a great day
