two in one

These cards were made for this fortnight's challenge at Incy Wincy Designs.  We have two great sponsors this time around - The Paper Shelter and Angie's Digital Stamps.  The challenge theme is Enchanted Garden and/or Christmas In July.

For my First card I used an image from The Paper Shelter called Waiting For Santa Too.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I love The Paper Shelter for those quick and easy cards.  The image and DP are all one image, I just had to add the sentiment and it's "box".

Married Honey Bunnies

 This card was made for this fortnight's slimline or shaped card challenge at Incy Wincy Designs.  The sponsor is Polkadoodles.  I'm not sure where to find this image or if it is even available anymore...??  I chose to make a wedding card in the shape of a heart.



Thanks for looking!

Bugaboo Postssss

 Hello my friends!  I am so terrible, this whole house buying thing has got me so mentally weighed down that I've gotten behind on my DT posts.  I make all of these cards way in advance, then forget to get them on my blog and scheduled to post.  So, I am going to post all of the cards that should have already posted...  I'm going to start with the most recent to the oldest.

This card is this week's Bugaboo Friday Freebie, this is Sunbonnet Beach.  For this card I used an image of a beach chair in the back ground, and then used the image twice (making one smaller and flipping her).  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.


 

This card was made for this fortnight's Anything Goes challenge.  (on a side note...) Bugaboo is now doing the challenge and the Stella Says Sketch challenge bi-weekly, alternating weeks...This is new!

For this card I used two different Bugaboo images Relaxing Guy and Heart Cats, the sentiment is mine.  The friend who's house I'm staying at until I get my new home, he has two sweet (in his opinion) cats, Razor is an orange and white tabby cat who is still somewhat young and a black cat named Salem who is around 14, but you'd never guess it.  You can certainly tell they are his furry overlords!!  LOL  So, for Father's Day, since he does not have kids of his own, I made him this card.



This was last week's Friday Freebie - Monkey Pirate-Shovel, it looks like the link is still available!  For this one I found a picture of a deserted island, then put the monkey image over it.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.




This card was made for the current Stella Says Sketch challenge.  For this one I used two Bugaboo images 3 Silhouettes Set and Silhouettes butterfly flowers.  The papers are from A Bit More Time To Craft.  This is the current sketch:

and this is my card


Last but not least...wow, 3 weeks behind, this is truly terrible!!  This was the Friday Freebie (looks like this link may still be available as well!!).  I love these images where you can use it just as the card itself...The sentiment is from Create With TLC.


Thanks for baring with me as I played catch up.  Hope there is something here to inspire you!  ;)

Wedding Congrats!

 This card was made for this fortnight's ATG challenge over at Catch The Bug


For this card I used an image from a Bugaboo set called Make It Snappy - Congratulations.  That is all I did, it makes a card all by itself!  I am totally missing my craft room!  I'm missing my ribbon, gems, pop dots, papers, etc...  One day, I'm hoping soon, I will have a place to live where I can have my craft room back!  I've been looking all over the USA for a job/home.  I seem to be stuck in the Boise area where homes and rent are just way too expensive without having someone to help pay the rent/house payment.  

As some of you know, I am a wedding officiant.  Today I have 4 weddings to go and perform.  I will be traveling from Boise, ID. to Ontario, OR. to do these weddings.  There is nothing more wonderful than sharing one of the most important days with a couple!

For this card I used a fun image called Glass of Wine a Day.  I added a small bit of "stitching" and the "frame"; both from Scrapbooks Gone Digital, behind the image and called it good.

 This card was made for this month's 'Anything Goes' challenge at Pattie's Creations Design Challenges.

For this card I used the image called Baa To You.  So, I need to share a funny thing.  I had both images colored and cut out (using my Cricut), then couldn't find the other one.  It's lost, still haven't found him.  So...I ended up using only one.  I used a fun image in the background, added a sentiment cut using the Cricut and added some flowers, gems and a twine bow.
