Hello on a Tic Tac Toe

This fortnight over at Incy Wincy Designs the challenge theme is a tic tac toe board.  We are being sponsored by Fabrica Fantasy.  The pre-colored image I used was "Summer Lynx".  I placed this image onto some rainbow digi paper and added the word digitally as well.  I then printed the image out, I added some "stitching" around the image and added a couple solid colors of cardstock.  I added a bow and some gems, then decided to "pop" the image by added a butterfly on top of the butterfly with a pop dot, and made his head pop as well.

here is the tic tac toe board (I went diagonal):

 thepapershelter = 3 digi stamps

Unfortunately I didn't know about the sponsors until after I'd made my card.  Since I've been moving, my craft room still isn't done, I wasn't able to make anything using one of their images.

The image I made for the theme "Birthday Card" was made using an image from Cute As A Button called Rose Garden.  I added "real" flowers to her hair, I added a rose charm, a sticker sentiment, three gems, some cheese cloth and some burlap.  I used Glossy Accents over her hair.

Singing in the rain

This fortnight at Crafting With Dragonflies the challenge theme is 'Twisted Easel Card'.  I chose to play with an image from The Paper Shelter called The Sun's In My Heart.  I tried a couple of new techniques on this one, for instance, the floating butterfly and her hanging above the edge when it is 'twisted'.  For the butterfly I used one of the 'stems' from the flowers and glued it on there.  I added a lot of nice flowers, some cheese cloth and some fun bling that I removed from an old phone case I used to have.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.

Fly Free

I don't know that I have used this die very many times.  Since the challenge this fortnight at Crafting With Dragonflies was "Dies and/or Punches", I decided I needed to play with it!  I also used a butterfly punch and some butterfly 'scraps' from a border punch (I think I use the scraps more than the border).  I added some gems and drew some "stitching" around the entire thing.

Hap-Bee Birthday

This fortnight over at Incy Wincy Design Challgenges the theme is "Nature and All Of It's Beauty".  There are two sponsors, Sasayaki Glitter and Kit And Clowder.  I used an image from Sasayaki glitter, being a busy busy honey bee (my call sign/email) I had to use the cute bee looking image called "The Fairy Digital Stamp".  I added glittery paper, went with blacks and yellows and added some fun string pearl.  For some reason I love to use string pearls around my image when I do bees and other flying insects...
