I am Late in getting all my posts up this week. Really I'm not a slacker planned to be home early on Monday to finish up all my cards and posts but didnt work out that way. I had worked long hours prior, drove 15 hrs to Texas with my friend to do her sons wedding cakes last week, my uncle had been very ill and passed away, my aunt came to visit my mom had a stroke and airvaced to Vegas. They flew me back to Vegas after I finished the cakes. Went to see my aunt then drove the two hours home and back to work. Yikes too much life and too little time. All that rambling to say thats the reason they are late but here they are now.
My first card:
TUESDAY THROWDOWN Challenge is Sparkle and Bling and our sponsor is The Greeting Farm. They sent us the fun images to use. Mine is the Spring Fairy which I water colored and popped up the flower stickled flower. She was cut out with the Spellbinder scalloped circle, jewels added and then foam dotted on. The Bo Bunny dp it is matted on is stickled and stitched on. The little flowers and butterfly is also stickled. Two shades of dyed ribbon, stitching and a MS punched border finish it off.
THE PIXIE COTTAGE Challenge this week is For Mom or a Special Lady.I have used the lovely lilies by Artish. You will find this and many more stamps plus digis at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More. The lilies were water colored and matted on some Basic Grey that I stitched on. Some dyed ribbon, button and tag finish off the card. The coordinating tag is to tie onto the package.
PASSIONATELY ARTISTIC Challenge is Countdown to Easter. I've used the sweet Heart Song Digi Image Theadore and balloons. Cut out and punched corner rounds. Matted on the blue and then stitched onto the fun Eastery patchwork dp. Big satin bow, buttons and sentiment cut out with the Spellbinder scalloped squares finish this little card.
