GREEN GREEN lots of green...

That is todays Challenge at Speedy Fox and Friends today! 
Green is one of my favorite colors but I couldnt seem to get the ole mojo
going! Not having my sewing machine is a real pain, the edges don't seem finished 
without some stitiching on them! I have used several of the images from the
 Snowflakes Set. I embossed them them cut them out to layer. The small one is
 sandwiched between two Martha Stewart punched pieces. A bit of glitter and a 
jewel to add a tad of sparkle. The sentiment is from the Create With Pine Boughs Set.

Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge

Good Morning Friends. Been a while  since Ive posted. Sorry havent been to visit you all much.
 My family was here for my brother in law's service. Spending time together was the priority. 
Life can change so quickly, my BIL was diagnosed with cancer a few short months ago 
and already gone! Hug your loved ones and tell your friends how you much you care for them,
 you might not get another opportunity.....   
That is my heartfelt advise for the day SO now On with the Challenge..
.Today we are embossing flowers on Vellum.After stamping with Versamark you embossed you
 image then add a little color on the backside of the image. Cut it out and add it to you card...
easy as can be!   I made up a little set of  three/

The first on using the Lily Image. Some sunny yellow, a little dp from Lawn Fawn and
 a MS punched edge. A little string of jewels and butterfly for a bit of embellishment. 
Simple and easy to send thru the mail; The dp was stitched along the edge.
 I think my machine is just about toast, joining the growing group 
of malfuntions at my house!! It will only sew backwards lol!!

The next one uses the Coneflower Image. The dp is one of those year stacks.
 The little edge was cut with a Stampin Up border die as was the little white one.
 The frame is a Scalloped Oval Spellbinder. The dp was stitched on
.This one will be easy to mail also.

The last one is the Rose Image. Got a little carried away on this one not so mailable!
 The the striped dp is from Stampin Up and cut with a Spellbinder Decorative Square.
 The butterfly is a Cheery Lynn and a handdyed bow. The little border behind
 is also from the year stack and cut with my new punch
 from my sweet friend Martha!!.

All the images and sentiments plus a myriad of Stamping Goodies
 are available at MFP Stamp Shop
 Hope you all will stop my at try this technique!!

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge

Good Morning it is time for TT Team B Challenge. It is Thankful and our
 sponsor is DeeDee's Digis. She has generously supplied us with our choice of images
. I am using one from the Autumn Blessings Set. After coloring I was adding a little shading
 to the twigs with a copic and all of a sudden big drops of ink came out. I had to cut a piece
 of to salvage the image to thats why it may seem a little off. A little checked dp and a
 border cut with a PTI die. The sentiment is cut with a Spellbinder banner die. 
This challenge cuts pretty close to the heart today.
 My sister's husband passed away Thursday after a shocking diagnosis of cancer
 in June She turns 60 tomorrow and They would have been married 43 years!She was
 determined he was her soulmate and they were married on her 17th birthday.
 I am thankful he was a part of our family for all these years. He was a tower
 of strength and always willing to help whenever needed. He was much more than 
just a BIL he was more like a brother.  Im also thankful that 
he was a wonderful husband to my sis 
and father to my nephews and niece.
 His passing has left a huge hole in our family but we
 have the blessed assurance that we will see him again one day!

Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge

Today our challenge is to create a background with inks,stencil and water.
You will find the tutorial HERE for the Challenge. I used Tim Holtz
weathered wood, dusty concord and pine needles inks for the color. 
Then. using a  Balzer Design Stencil,  the Mini Swirly Garden,
 I spritzed the water over it and dabbed. It made a nice quiet design.
 I then stamped the flower from the Hydrangea Set and water colored it.
 The sentiment is from the Ivy and Blossoms Set.The little bottom
border was cut with a Stampin Up die .All was stitched onto the
 aqua base, which by the way was a big chore!!
Have you ever tried to sew backwards?? My sewing
machine is joining the ever growing menagerie of malfunctioning stuff around here
It wont go forward it will only go backwards, kinda crazy 
but hey I just went with it and thats why it looks a little wonky LOL!!. 
This is an easy technique that gives
 a great variety of results depending on color and stencils.
 Check out my teammates lovely creations!

It's that time again. Speedy Fox and Friends is challenging you to

 From there I stamped the coneflower fro the Cone Flower Set and cut it out. 
The Sentiment is  silver heat embossed from the Sunflower Set and cut with a Spellbinder
 die then foam dotted on. It looked so plain so I added some "Australian Lace" with 
Silver Stickles.A little harder that doing it with smooth flowing frosting lol! Voila done!! 
Here in the Mohave Desert we are having our last hurrah of heat today 109 and

Here at Speedy Fox and Friends we have a new Challenge for the upcoming week. 
All the team has some great inspirational creations to get you going!
  The challenge is to Stamp over Stencils. After using some blue lavender and green inks
 with my stencil I also used THE Cracked Hello Set to stamp over the
 stencil in random spots.  After that I used the small rose from the  Roses Set
 I stitched on then distressed the edges and dyed a bow to match.I have to say this the jewels
do match, something about the lighting turned them neon turquoise!!
 All mounted on the blue for a pretty quick card.

 I'm on a twofur roll the past couple weeks LOL!! Needed another card and had started this one first and didnt like it, but after I finished it, it's not so bad so showing it too.
Used a triple square stencil in different colors and then just plain stamped over with the
 Rooster and Hen from the Flap My Wattles Set.
 My friends birthday is here and we have been friends for  40 years!! 
This will make her laugh for sure!

Good Morning Friends...

Can you believe August is just about gone? We are supposed
 to be cooling down into the low 100's by next weekend, woohoo summer is winding down!
So anyways onto our Friend of Speedy TV Challenge this week. The card 
that none of us really wants to make. A Sympathy Card is this weeks theme.
My friend's son passed away last week so I made two trying to decide
 which one to give her.  The first one I used the image from the
 Oriental Joy Set with a little bit of coloring. I didnt want to use a
 sympathy sentiment so the thinking of you is from the Chrysanthemum Set.

For this card I stamped the tule images from the Marsh Silhouette Set as is the
sentiment attached with a brad.
Stop by and join the Challenge this week!!

Happy Saturday Friends....

Candles is the challenge, cut out, embossed or image.

 Since I didnt  have an image or folder I have cut my candles 
out of some red paper adding a little shaddowing, drips and flame atop.
 My papers are from Paper Studio Country Christmas Pak. 
After cutting out the candles I punched and die cut the foliage and pinecones with 
Spellbinder dies and Martha Stewart punch. The matted sentiment is from the 
Poinsettia Set. The candles were easy and fun to make and it made a quick 
and easy card.I added a little doodling across the top to go with the hearts.
Stop over for a little jump start on inspiration.
 My teammates have used a variety of ways to make candles.

Tuesday Throwdown.  Team B is Challenging you to use Texture!
Now with all the different medias available the sky is the limit on this one so join us!!

Our sponsor is Lawn Fawn and they have generously supplied us with a set of our choice.
 I am using the  Cruising Through Life Set. This is the cutest set with lots of fun pieces.
It would be great to use for a friend or mate either one.
 You will want to drop by Lawn Fawn's Shop and pick a few of their awesome sets.
They also have matching dies for some of their sets!
So I first created a background with the gelatos and them added texture with two
 different folders, lines for the grass and swirls for the sky. Next I added clouds and 
used a daisy stencil for the sun.
The flowers are from the set and I added dimensional paint to them.
 I stamped the fun sentiment from the set along the bottom . The bicycle was stamped 
colored with watercolors and some silver sparkle paint. Cut out and attached and the 
whole thing attached to the green base.  I made this to give to my hubby to encourage 
him a bit. He was hurt over two years ago and it has only worsened with time, 
he cant work or do much, so wanted to make him smile a bit!

Good Morning Friends

Hope your week is off to a good start!
  This week at Tuesday Throwdown Team B has a Sketch for you to use.
 Our Sponsor My Grafico has given us a fun Set Pretty Mermaid to use.
 My granddaughter turns 8 Friday so I have made this card for her. They live in Oahu and 
I cant be there for her birthday so Im hoping she will enjoy her card.  I have taken 
quite a bit of liberty with the sketch as you can see. I used the wall of seaweed for the 
strip and the fish for the button. The rest of the seaweed 
 and sweet Mermaid for the second square. After printing
 and coloring all the pieces I cut them out. The base is colored with Gelatos, 
embossed and stitched on the aqua base. After attaching all the pieces I added 
the jewels and stickles to the sentiment.

Check out all the fun ideas my Teamies came up with!!
You have until next Monday eve to join in the fun...

Welcome August....

Another month and the worst of summer will be over!!
Cooler evenings coming, and I can't wait. So here we are another
 new Friends of Speedy TV Challenge. A woven background is the challenge
 this week.My card is a pretty quick cas of sorts. My time has been very limited 
since I'm caring for my friends cat. He has to be fed and medicated 5 times a day. 
Im also taking care of her house, plants and other kitties while she is  gone for surgery. 
The fortunate perk is she is also my boss so I can leave work to do it. I do have 
to say  it  is a blessing to be able to help even if it keeps me extra busy.
I used three different dps in green for the woven part, sort of staggering
 them so they dont make a perfect square.. The Morning Glory image is 
from the Friends Set colored and cut out. The mat is a embossed 
Spellbinder Scalloped Circle. The butterfly was a punched one from a
 friend I embossed and added the antennae.  
The sentiment is from the  Tiger Lilies Set.
Do Stop by and check out all the other beautiful inspiration
my teammates have created!!

New Saturday Challenge

Good Morning Friends!! Today at Speedy TV and Friends 

we are challenging you to Doodle a Frame.
I have used the Hydrangea Image and taken a little liberty with it.
 I've never seen a peach colored Hydrangea but you are seeing one now! 
I used water color pencils and Copics to color the image.
 I have used a older scrap of Pink Paislee dp and a piece of 
some very cool recycled cardboard for a
  border. I wanted my frame to have a more vintage look 
that blended in with the dp instead of being bold. For that look
I doodled with a Stampin Up Soft Suede marker instead of black.
 A little stitching for embellishment and the Sentiment is
from the      Set  with a bit of doodling on it also.
This is such a fun and easy  Challenge I hope you 
all will hop on over and join us this week!! 
Also all my teamies did different things with this
Challenge so you can check out all their fabulous creations
to give you a little extra inspiration.

  an unexpected pale green!  A thin white mate to separate it
from the base. The borders were cut with the  
Spellbinder border die and stitched on. The center  was dry
embossed with the SU Square Lattice folder. The sentiment is

The background was made with some paste and a Heidi Swapp  butterfly stencil. 
After letting the stencil dry I added several different inks . Although it doesnt 
show much of the background is the same green as the base of the card. 
A little stitching to attach it all. The Birthday sentiment was cut with a
Spellbinder Scalloped circle and foam dotted on. My talented teamies 
have lots of great Creations to inspire you. Stop by and join the fun
 and you may be the winner of some of the lovely A Day for Daisys images!!
