Happy Spring-- Tic Tac Toe Challenge #tttc036 and Stamp Ink Paper #138

February 22, 2018

It's time for a new challenge at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge!

We have a fantastic board for all of you!





We would love for you to take some inspiration from the challenge board above, using three elements in a row of your choice. Whatever row inspires you is what we challenge you to create! Don’t forget to link back to us, and to use our hashtags #tictactoechallenge and 
#tttc036

My card is on the Diagonal:  Fancy Border, Green Popped Up

I am also entering my card in the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge.  I love bright colors and Spring, so this set makes me happy! 







My card is created on a white card base.  A white rectangle was stenciled with a raindrops stencil using Stormy Sky Distress Ink.  The green polka dot border was cut with a Lawn Fawn border die. The little girl and umbrella are stamped using Simon Says Stamp Abby's Spring Showers stamp set.  I paper pieced her rain jacket and umbrella with the same paper that I used on the border.  She was colored with Copic Markers.  The sentiment is stamped in black using the same stamp set.  





Thank you so much for stopping by today, please pop over and see more inspiration from the rest of the Tic Tac Toe design team and I hope you have a chance to play along with us this week!
  HUGS!

You Leave Me In Stitches--PP381

February 18, 2018

It's time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

The lovely LeAnne is our hostess this week and she has a fun "Clean and Simple" challenge for all of us!  LeAnne loves sewing and card making, so this is just perfect for her!  We can't wait to see what you create!


OH MY GOODNESS--I know you are thinking this is not a CAS card. You are correct!  I made my card a few days ago and started to write my blog last night and realized I didn't notice the CAS on the challenge picture!  I wrote LeAnne to apologize.  I offered to skip this week, but she said NO!  So, I will share my card and continue to beg forgiveness.  


LeAnne might love sewing,  me, not so much!  But, I was so proud of the stitching I did on my card.  I dug through so many boxes of paper looking for something that had to do with sewing.  I loved the paper I found.  I have had it for years.  I know it is by Authenique, but have no idea the name of the pattern.  I also had a set of stamps that I bought years ago at Michael's that had sewing items in it.  I only used it once.  I had a friend that loved sewing and I made a card for her.  I don't know the name of the stamp set either.  I let the paper do all the work, except for stamping the sentiment.  The ribbon, button and hat pin were added and that is why I struggle with CAS!   I thought the finishing touches were perfect and made me smile!

You Are My Sunshine--Sketch Saturday #501

February 17, 2018


It's time for a new challenge at Sketch Saturday!



 We have one of our favorites joining us as sponsor this week.
The super prize this week is 
two digital stamps of the winner's choice.



My card is created on a white card base.  I rotated the sketch to fit my design.  I added Lemon Twist paper behind this fun piece of  DSP.  I added Bermuda Bay squares (1 1/4" punch)   Then I used a 1 " punch for the Lemon Twist squares.  A pair of sunglasses was stamped and I colored the lenses with Copic Markers and added Glossy Accents for shine.  I cut a sun out of yellow card stock and cut it in half to make the sunshines. 



I hope you will join us this week!
