Going Buggy with WW

Happy Wednesday!

Hello my scrappy friends.  I hope you are all having a great summer.
 It's Wednesday!!  Another DT Whimsical Wednesday project for 
Whimsical Designs.  This week Stephanie challenged us to "go buggy."
We had to create a project that includes an insect or animal.  Our sponsor this week
QKR Stampede was so sweet to let us pick a digi for our projects.  I picked the
beaver.  I love his glasses.  I colored him up with my copic markers.

I made an 8 x 8 layout.  Yes, I am determine to finish my grand daughters mini album.
I didn't layer it to much, again because it's going inside a photo album.  I'm just excited
to finally be working on it.  The paper is from the 12 x 12 "The Neapolitan collection.
Everything else is from my stash.  The sentiment is from the Whimsical fun vol. 1.

Please join us with this challenge.  I would love to see your buggy friends.
The prize is 5 digis of winners choice.

Take care my friends.
Big hugs!

Pile it up for WW

Hello there

Happy Wednesday!  I just got back from Cape Cod late last night.  It's always
great to come home after a few days.  I always forget how beautiful the
Cape is until I'm there again.

Well today Stephanie's challenge with Whimsical Designs is to Pile it Up!!!
We had to make a project that includes at least 3 layers and 2 or more
embellishments.  Our sponsor this week is the same as last week.
Yup!  The Paper Parade!  And here is my card all piled up...

I used the 6 x 6 paper stack "Ginger" from Indie Chic, and another paper
but I can't remember which one. I'm not sure LOL. I did some stitching
with my sewing machine on the paper.  I went around it twice to give it
that look.  I used a rub on from Michael's, which is really a candelabra. 
So I rubbed it upside down to make it look like a chandelier.  Then 
I added some pearls as light bulbs.  I think it's pretty neat.  
The image you see is "Andrea's Halo." Isn't she just adorable and sexy?  
To complete my card I added some flowers,
buttons, and an adorable butterfly.  And of course the sentiment is from the
stamp set "Everyday Sentiments."   Great stamp set!

So let's see you pile it up.  Come play with us and maybe you can be the
winner this week for Whimsical Designs.  Prize is a 15$ certificate

Take care and big hugs

Favorite Color with WW

Hello there!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  It's time for another 
challenge with Whimsical Designs.  Ok, so this week Stephanie
challenged us to create with our favorite colors.  So our sponsor
The Paper Parade asked us what our favorite colors were. Then she 
 sent us all a kit with the colors in it.  I don't really have a favorite
but I do love pink and brown.  So I told her pink and brown.  
Well, I received a wonderful kit and made a 6 X 6 layout.  
 I still have some things left that I will be using soon.
And here it is...

Every thing I used is from the paper Authentique "cherish two" paper.
I added the flowers and bling from my stash.  The "precious" is also from
The Paper Parade.  I'm going to place it in my grand daughter's album that
I'm making for her.  That's why it's not very dimensional.  The sentiment
"Sprinkled with love" is from Whimsical Designs.
"With Love".

So come by and take the challenge.  The prize is a $15.00 certificate.

Have a great day!

Clean and Simple with WW

Hello there

It's hump day!  And yes!  You got it.  It is time for another challenge with
Whimsical Designs.  This week Stephanie challenged us to made a card
"Clean and Simple" with minimum layers and embellishments.  This was
very hard because I wanted to add and I had to back off!! LOL  I kept
saying to myself "leave it, and walk away."  LOL  And I did :-)
So here it is.... my clean and simple card.

I used paper from the 6 x 6 paper pad "Reunion."  The mushrooms are eye lets that
I had in my stash.  The cute image is from our sponsor this week Crafty Sentiments.
His name is Henry the Mushroom Bear.
She was so sweet to send us each 3 images and I picked this one for today.
And then my sentiment is from Whimsical Designs "Everyday Sentiments."

The winner for this weeks challenge will receive 3 digis of winners choice.

Again thank you for visiting me and please feel free to leave a comment.
Big hugs to all

Smash book / junk journals

Hello crafters!!

Boy it's hot out there and I love it!!  My grand babies are in Disney
and so I am catching up with some backed up projects.  I bet you know the
feeling.  Well today I wanted to share with you two Smash books I made
for my daughter's co worker.  They are both 6 X 9

On this one I used Andrea's Halo stamp by my sweet friend Elsa from 
Just a few Designs.  I just love her.  This is my 4th project using her.  I know!
I'm out of control but look at her.  I think you should get one also. 

Then on this one I used the Prima doll stamp which I also love.  I then fussy cut her
outfit.  All the flowers on both books are from IAR.  A lot of Tim Holts goodies
and some embellishments from my stash.

She said she loved them and I hope you like them too.  I hope you continue to
have a great summer.  As always thank you for coming by and please let me know 
what you think.  I love hearing from you.

Christmas in July with WW

Hello my crafty friends

How are you today?  It's raining pretty hard out today.  I just hope tomorrow is nice
since it's the 4th of July tomorrow.   Well, today is another Whimsical Wednesday
challenge.  Stephanie challenged us to "Christmas in July".  First I though,
Christmas?  But you know what?  I loved it!  I love Christmas and the feeling was
wonderful.  So, I am happy to say I enjoyed making this card.

The paper I used for the image and the back round is from Tim Holtz.  I cut the cute
little reindeer with my cricut, using the "Paper Doll Dress Up" cartridge.  The ribbon
is from a swap I did with Gina and then to finish it off buttons and bling from my stash.
My sentiment is from Whimsical Designs "Snow Much Fun"

Our sponsor this week is... "The Robins' Nest"
And the Prize: Christmas Package worth $25

Thank you for coming by and as always I hope I inspired you in some way.
Good luck and have a wonderful holiday tomorrow.
