February 22, 2014 - Love of Pearls and Bling Aussie DT Challenge

Happy Saturday everyone.  Can you believe that February is almost gone.  WOW it seems like time is truly flying by quickly.  We have been enjoying the warm weather here in FL and looking at the temps around the country looks like some of my friends in the north are getting some pretty decent weather for a change.  Spring is just around the corner thank goodness.

For those of you who know me well know I love "bling" so this was a great challenge for me.  Throw in "pearls" and what a great combo.  :-)   I had so much fun designing this card for our Love of Pearls and Bling challenge and hope that you like the card.

I love this sweet "Bestie", IMG 175.  She looks like she is having so much fun and she puts a smile on my face.  You can find her on Sherri Baldy's Etsy page.  If you are interested you can find her Here

Supplies Used:
Tim Holtz Distressed Inks
Wild Orchid Flowers
Miscl Cardstock and Designer papers from AC Moore
Offray Ribbon
Spellbinders Scalloped Oval Die
Stickles on little hearts
Pearl Swirls were all together and I cut them to fit my design

We would love for you to join us in our Love of Pearls and Bling.  We would love to see all your lovely creations.  You can post your entries for the challenge by clicking HERE

February 10, 2014 -My Besties Aussie DT Challenge - LOVE IS IN THE AIR

I am so please to share with  you all  our new Aussie Bestie DT challenge.  It is called Love is in the Air and we were challenged to use red, black and white. 

 I had so much fun designing this card for you and love the way that the inside becomes part of the outside when you bend the front and stand it up.  I don't know about you, but I love cards with different dimensions, folds, pockets, bends, etc..  :-)  And what a great time for our Love is in the Air theme, since Valentine's is just a few days away.  When I saw this My Bestie digi image, I knew she was the one for this challenge.  If you love her like I do, you can find her Here.  

Supplies used: 
Distressed Markers:  Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Worn Lipstick, Broken China 
Stampin Up Markers:  Real Red, Basic Black
Stickles on hanging hearts and ruffle on skirt
Dies:  Spellbinders Oval
Memory Box:  La Rue Fourish #98218
