Sweet Berries

Hello Everyone,

I hope all are having a wonderful weekend. Notice I didn't say had a wonderful week. Well here in the states it is Memorial Day weekend and many have tomorrow off. The unofficial start of summer so to speak. Everyone flocked to the beaches this weekend. Oh the traffic around here.

Ok on to my card for MayzyArt challenge. The theme this time around is Sweets. Of course most think candy and cakes I went with sweet & juicy strawberries and what better image than this one of Mayzy's. This was an exclusive image for TTCRD magazine about a year ago. 

I have colored her with my copics but I wanted something a little more than a card so I found this fun cameo cut file for a strawberry basket by Doodling Debbie in her Silhouette Plus forum Here  But don't forget to check out her blog too. She is very talented and is a wiz with the Cameo. 

 She even included the strawberry paper too. I found the strawberry sign on google. I was very please with how this all came together. 

I hope you will join us over at MayzyArt for this challenge. 

Thanks for stopping by.

I am entering this into the following challenges.

Mayzy's Amazing May Blog Hop

Hello Everyone,

So glad that you have stopped by today. I have something special for you. MayzyArt is having a May blog hop.There is a fun game she is doing as well so you will have to collect all the secret words along the way.  Mayzy gave the DT's an opportunity to invite guest DT's to join along in the blog hop. 
The hardest part of this was picking out an image to use. Mayzy has so many fun images to use. But I wanted to use one that I could get creative with using the step card. By they way make sure you check at the bottom of this post. I have a video on making this card that so many people make but I have also created a cut file sorry it's just for the Silhouette Cameo but it will be located in the video description as well as below the video. 

This sweetie is Jean, and she is holding a birthday cupcake for that special birthday girl. 
I have colored her with my Copics. I also cut her and the mat for her from the Cameo. 

The paper is from Sherry K digi collection I picked up from her Etsy Store. She has some really cute papers. And many times they are on sale. I like the bright cheery colors that she has. 

I went to town cutting out candles. I love this and the funny thing is they came with the Cameo software who knew.. lol I backed them with the sticker paper and added glitter to match each of the cut out parts of the candles. The Happy Birthday is also a Cameo file.

Now I have to tell you I didn't have charms before but I have found a shop called The Charm Store 24/7 and she was very fast at shipping. She has some of the cutest charms around. 

Here is the Silhouette Cameo cut file for download

Oh I guess you would like to know the Secret word for my part of the blog hop.

Now in case you have stopped here out of the blog hop order I have listed them below if you are right on track then you next stop will be Candy's blog 

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have enjoyed what I have for you today and will give this card a try. Enjoy the rest of your stops.

Dreaming of being on the team!

Happy Sunday everyone,

Also Happy Mother's day to all the Mom's out there. That included moms to human kids and mom's to your pets as well. Got to include them. :-)

Today brings a new challenge over at MayzyArt. We have a fun one for you this time around. It's all about the boys. Yup you guessed it make a card having to do with boys. 

My little guy is sitting here watching big brother play dreaming about being on the team one day. 
This little guy is Tyler and you can pick him up here.

I have colored him in with my copics. I gave him curly blond hair. Just seemed fitting. 

The papers I have used are by Fancy Pants Designs from their Little Sport collection.

The SOCCER is a cut I have done on my Cameo and I backed the ball with white to make it look like a soccer ball or as some of my UK DT teamies call it football. LOL Either way I thought it was cute. 

I hope you will join us for our challenge this time around. And don't forget to watch here for the blog hop on the 18th for MayzyArt. There is going to be some great inspirations and fun games and prices. I hope you will also join us for that. 

Thanks for stopping by today.

May Flowers

Happy Day Everyone,

Yes, it's Friday and that mean another challenge over at The Outlawz. 

This weeks theme is May Flowers.

I have a real cutie this week for you. This is from Sassy Cheryl's. I have really taken a liking to her stamps. There is just something about them. I just thought this little girl was just adorable carrying her flower. The verse was a freebie that TLC offered. I just thought it was perfect. 

I have colored the image with my copics. The picture is hard to see but I have used a glitter pen on the petal of the flower and her bow in her hair. 

We have a sponsor this month over at The Outlawz offering a wonderful prize. You should stop by and check it out. 

When I first did the card layout out I was going for an A2 card but then wanted to add a splash more color but not take away from the CAS of the image. I hope I have been able to do that. 

I do hope you will stop by and check us out. Click here

Hello everyone,

Hope all is well. Today I am bringing you my DT card for our new challenge over at TTCRD Magazine. Is your subscription up to day. This new issue will be out very soon. Need to subscribe or renew click HERE

This weeks sponsor is Bugaboo. They have some really fun images and the sayings that go along with it are such a hoot. 

When I do a Bugaboo image I try to keep it clean and simple. 

I have colored this fun couple with my Copics. The little glitter hearts were brads but I cut the backs off and am using them just as embellishments. 
I stayed with a simple background paper design so the images would pop.

I hope you will join us for this challenge. And be sure and stop by Bugaboo and check out some of their fun images to make fun, fast and very funny cards with.

Penguin Love

Hello Everyone,

I am here a bit late tonight with my DT card for The Outlawz Copic/ProMarker challenge.

This week is The birds and the bees or bugs.

Show us what you have. 

I am using one of MayzyArts Adorable images. This is Adeline with Penguins. Sometimes I forget that a penguin is a bird cause they are just so darn cute waddling all over.

Adeline is here with two of you cute little friends. 

I have colored her with my Copics. Added a little bakers twine for some texture. I used my SU scallop punch to create the border. 

The paper is from my stash. I have put Glamour Dust on all the fur trim. It hard to see the sparkle in the picture but it is really pretty up close. 

The friends stamp is an old set that I have had for years. I believe it came from Joann's.

I hope you will stop over and join us for the challenge this week. 

Also don't forget to check out MayzyArt for her 50% off sale good till tomorrow. Why not pick up some of her images and enter both the The Outlawz and MayzyArts challenge. Lots of fun going on. 

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great weekend.
