Challenge # 31

MFP Challenge this week is to make a different kind of card. I made a pocket card .
 After cutting the card I covered it with some lavender dp and added the Stampin UP border.
 My tag is cut with a Spellbinder Die and tied on .The sentiment is
 from the Oopsy Daisy Set.  My flowers are from the Friends  Set, I created
 a new hybrid color LOL!! As you can see I added a couple to my tag
. The top is cut with a Spellbinder die too. Simple but a nice change, you can
 tuck a gift card, little book etc in the pocket. 
We would be delighted if you come join us this week!

The tag
I also finished the inside of the pocket

Todays Challenge is

a color one. MFP Challenge is to use the color tan. It should be the predominate 
color but you can used black, brown or white as well as a small amount of
 1 other color. Tan was a bit hard for me, I like color!
Using a brown and tan plaid to add some color to the tan base helps.
 I decided on brown leaves instead of green, seemed
 to go better with my  tan & brown flower and  the
 background. I used a Spellbinder die for the leaf spray.
The sentiment is from the Sending Happy Thoughts Set..
Simple and relatively quick. You have the week
 to join in the fun so stop over!

Tuesday Throwdown Team B

Good Morning our Tuesday Throwdown Challenge this week is use your
 Favorite Embellishment!
 Our Sponsor is Poppy Power and they have the Most Beautiful images!! 
If you love Botanicals this is the place to shop!! So I have used the
  beautiful Clematis image for my card, coloring it in reds. I love Clematis but
 unfortunately they dont like the desert and wont grow here, 
so have to be satisfied with them on a card!
I dont  know that I have a particularly favorite embellie but
 I do love ribbons and pearls. I didnt have any pearls so used some sequins,
 jewels and a hand dyed ribbon to go with my clematis image. My tag was
 embossed with a Stampin Up folder and the dp is a Teresa Collins World Travel
 piece. The pretty border is a PTI die. My teammates have some beautiful
 cards to inspire you so stop by and visit them!!

A different kind of card....

Today MFP Stamp Challenge has a new challenge. 
It is to make a rocker card, with instructions HERE. I havent made one
of these before but pretty easy. I have used some coordinating dps in coral 
tones. The images are from the lovely Asian Delights Set.
 Geisha girls are beautiful and I love their kimonos. 
I  have a beautiful one 
from when I was in Japan. After coloring
 all the images in the set I finally decided on this one. Cut her out 
and mounted to show her up a little better. 
The border is cut with a Spellbinder die and a little ribbon wrapped around.
 A quick card and fun. Dare ya to try it!!

Happy Saturday Friends

Today MFP Challenge is a Tie Die Technique. 
 Im dating myself of course when I say Im from the tie die era lol!! I remember when we 
had so much fun tie dying our tee shirts etc. Well this is a little bit different, no rubber bands 
bunching up fabric. Just some ink and paper. I dont have any foam dobbers so I just
 dropped the ink on and spread it with some water. The background is a little bold, 
but you get the idea. My  Pansy Stamp image is from the Sending  Happy Thoughts Set 
 and the sentiment is from the Chrysanthemum Set.
We would love to have you stop over and join our fun this week.
 We have a tutorial  Here....

Happy Saturday!!

Today is a new MFP Challenge and it is a CAS with a picnic theme. 
 I have used the fruit bowl from the Celebrate Big Set and the sentiment is from
 the In the Den Set. These CAS are So hard for me, just way to plain lol!! So
 there you have it lots of white with one stamped image and sentiment.

I'm Very excited to say that my mom is being released tomorrow and it will be
 such a blessing to have her home. She only lives a few blocks from me, 
 so no more 45 min drives each way after work and weekends !!
 She will need some help but it will be so much
easier having her home!! 

For those of you in the U.S. have a Happy Fourth of July!
