We have a brand new challenge started at Crafting When We Can. Our challenge is CAS. We are being sponsored by Devil Cait Designs.
CAS has always been hard for me. I don't add tons of embellishing but I do like to add them and to layer the papers. I had this image colored for days before I could figure out how to use her. I finally settled on all white with a frame. I have had this die for quite some time and never used it. I'm pretty sure my sister gave it to me. I still had to add something so I settled on a big crinkly bow.
Please drop over to the CWWC blog and check out all the other DT projects made for your inspiration. Next head get your crafting tiara on and join us in the challenge.
Thanks for your visit and have a blessed day.
Coloring medium - Copic markers, Glossy Accents, Gelly Roll gel pen
Paper - Core 'dinations
Die - Cuttlebug
Ribbon - from a candy win a while back

Welcome once again to a new challenge from "Crafting When We Can". Our challenge is to add flowers. How easy is that! Our sponsor for this challenge is
The image I was given to work with is The Venetian Girl. Isn't she adorable! I love the little kitty in her lap. My sister gave her hubby a cat for Christmas and I tried to mirror her somewhat. She is Calico.
Since she looks dressed for Mardi Gras I thought I would use the colors purple, yellow and green. When I added the flowers to the tulle I kept having to add glue to it...it kept coming off the back through the tulle. So I grabbed my heat gun and got a little close. I loved the distress look it gave them so I decided to distress the card. (Not a big leap since I'm kind of into that right now but who knew the gun would distress the flowers. Not me.)
Please pop over to the CWWC blog and check out all the inspiration the DT have for you. Hope to see you in the challenge.
Thanks for visiting and have a peachy keen day!

Prize: Goodie bag of craft supplies

Prize: 3 images of choice to winner
I was given the image "Bird Flourish and Script Collage" from A Creative Need. The inspiration for coloring the bird comes from my sister's birds. This one is named Rudy. Isn't he cute!
This is Sydney. She is so smart. She sings and does tricks too. She has a red tail you can't see.
The bird I colored is a combo of the two. I colored it twice and did a fussy cut on the flowers, bird and branch. My scissors really need to be sharpened. This cut was not easy. Since the images were so small I put Glastique on them before cutting them out.
The background is a wash using diluted Dylusions. I had never done that before so I had to practice for a while. First I colored the images and added the Glastique before doing the wash. After it dried I added the fussy cut images and popped them up on some black foam squares. I used the black because the flowers were so small the white foam ones would show up and take away from the image.
I decided I wanted some butterflies and when I figured out which ones I was in a bind. I had picked out brads but had already glued the papers down. I removed the back of the brads and just used some glue dots to adhere them.
Because of all the flowers on the front I thought the inside should have something too so I added a floral stamp in the corner. Here's how it turned out.

Our challenge this fortnight is "The Big Bow Theory".
We are being sponsored by
Prize: 3 images of choice
Our very own Leslie
She will be offering a goodie bag of craft supplies
For this challenge I used an image I already had from Art by Miran. This is called "Heartfelt". As I get older I find more of my friends have developed breast cancer. This is so heart wrenching for me to watch them go through chemo and mastectomy procedures.
My good friend and Relief Society President has started chemo this week. Fortunately we are having conference this weekend so she can rest at home and watch. I decided that I would make a card for her. She is such a special lady...so giving and kind. I just love her so much. I hope this can bring a smile to her face.
Big bows are fun to make so I hope you join in the challenge and don't forget to check out all the DT creations at LTSCB.
Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

It's time for another amazing challenge at CRAFTING WHEN WE CAN!
Our challenge is "Based on a Song" and it's sponsored by Karleigh Sue Designs. The image I have is called "Let Me Perk You Up".
This image I guess makes most people think of coffee but since I don't drink it I thought of hot chocolate. That in turn made me think of the song "Hot Chocolate" from the movie Polar Express. It was such a cute movie. I found this cute ticket when I searched the web. It's small and in the corner but it says "Believe". I used to tell my kids that if they wanted presents they had to believe in Santa. Now that they are older the believe is more spiritual for us all.
I hope you will pop over to the CWWC blog and check out all the inspiration from the DT.
Thanks for visiting and have a fabulous day!

My image comes from The East Wind. She is called "Aurora Spring Butterfly". I colored her and the butterfly and fussy cut them out then glued them to another copy of the images. There was not a way for me to cut all the little bubbles in the air and the lines extended on the butterfly. This was the logical choice for me.
I'm really loving the distressed look lately as is evident in the last few cards I've made. I also finally got to use my butterfly ribbon. I got it just before Christmas from a challenge win and I just love butterflies.
Just before this challenge started my niece needed some birthday cards for her friends that are twins. She came to me to get some and picked this card right off the bat. I hope her friend liked it.
Please join us in the challenge and don't forget to check out all the amazing work from the DT here at LTSCB. Have a magnificent day.
