The sentiment is stamped in the darkest color. A little distressing and a 
sheer ribbon attached with a teal button finishes it off. My teammates have

Our Tuesday Throwdown Challenge this week is Too Cute to Spook. 
Our sponsor is 2Cute Ink

and my teammates have some Great inspiration for you, so stop by! I have used the

 The image was water colored and cut out with a Spellbinder die
 then foam dotted on.
 The boo was cut with a Stampin Up punch.
Wanted it to look fun and cheery not really halloweeny so added
 it to the aqua base.

Saturday again and time for Friends of Speedy Fox Challenge.
 Round the corners is your challenge today. So its is
Easy peasy, you can round corners on any part of your card!! 
Hop over and share your creation with us!!
 I used a image for the Block Flowers Set.
 Stamped with versamark and heat embossed with some brown powder. 
I cut it out and attached to the mat then rounded the corners. The dotted dp is cut 
with a Spellbinder Label # 17. I just did a little meandering stitch around the edges 
because it looked so plain. Rounded these corners also. The Hello is from
 the  Chrysanthemum Set cut with a SU punch. Im hoping this publishes

Do you like to watercolor??

Hope so because that is our challenge at Tuesday Throwdown this week!
 Our Sponsor is Freckled Fawn and they have provided us with these pretty
 little silver puffy hearts.There is a whole page of them in a variety of shapes and sizes. 
They reflected the shadows and look dark but really they are light and 
look very soft and pretty on the card. I started with green, blue ,purple and
 yellow water colors. Letting them puddle, run and dry. The image is an
 old Carol Wright that I also watercolored and cut a portion of it out 
with a Spellbinder. This was a fun card to make. I also
 made up several other background with  other colors since I was at it.
 Hope you stop over and show us your watercolor creations!

Lemons Lemons

Yes Im using some sunny lemons today for the Friends of Speedy TV Challenge. 
Our challenge is to use 3 panels on your card. It could be for your background or for 
your images. I randomly stamped the Lemon Image all over the panels then colored them 
with water color pencils and a bit with copics. I used chalk for the blue background.
 A little faux stitching around the panels, then added to the yellow base. 
The sentiments are from the  Dogwood Set and the Bring on the Sun Set
After matting I foam dotted them on and it was a pretty quick card.You can find

My talented teamies switched it up using the panels several different ways so 
check out their awesome creations and then come show us yours!!

you to Collage Stamping.
Using different stamps to create a collage effect. I have used several different 
Marks Finest Papers Happy Birthday Stamps and created the background using 
different colored inks with the different stamps. Then using different inks
