What's Shakin'?

Good Evening!  This is a short post, but I'd like to show you this card I made using one of Doodle Pantry's newer released images.  This is from the Crazy Cravings set.  I made it look as if  it's a strawberry milk shake, (just thought you might like to know .   For my card, I used design paper from Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients kit.  The sketch I used is one that my niece, Carly of Sketches by Carly,  drew up and is being sponsored by The Craft's Meow!!  So go check it out here.  That's about it for today.  See you back here this weekend as I'll have another card to show you.  Thanks for stopping by!!  Have a super weekend!

Beautiful Butterfly

Good Morning stampers!  I have a short post for you today.  I wanted to share with you a card I made using a digi from Priscillastyles.  I think I got this way back in June of last year when CDAC first started up.  It was a freebie offered then and is now available in her store and comes in a set of 3 for $3.

I didn't make this for any specific challenge, just as a Thank You for a special customer that I've had for many years. 

Well that's about all for me today, I've got to get ready for work..Have a great day and also a safe and  HAPPY EASTER!

Spotty Dotty Watering Can

Good Morning!  If you haven't had the chance to grab this cute li'l watering can over at the Delightful Inspiration blog, then I encourage you to go grab it now.  Since it's the first challenge of the month, it's free for all.  But hurry, the challenges ends Thursday April 7 at midnight!!

Here is my card using the Spotty Dotty Watering Can!  I used design paper from My MInds Eye called Bright Dots.  I added some roses and used the leaf punch from MS as well as the lattice border punch.  To finish it off, I put on some floral corner pieces from Cuttlebug. 

There's a challenge going on right now over at Card Ideas from D2D.  It's the Spotty Dotty Saturday Challenge and this image is perfect for it.  Of course you may use any digi image but somewhere on your card there must be spots/dots. Doesn't have to be in the image, it can be in the paper, ribbon, accessories, ect.  You get the idea.  We'd love to see your creations using some kind of spots and dots.  To see some more inspiration, head on over to the Card Ideas blog for a real treat.  Thank you for stopping by, have a super day!!
