Winter/Christmas + Paper Piecing by D2D

Happy Saturday!  Today starts a new challenge over at the  Designed2Delights challenge blog.   The challenge is to make a Wintery/Christmas card but also use paper piecing.  As you can see here, I used the new Gardening Kaela and paper pieced her shirt and socks.  I also pieced the flower pot.  To make the flower pot, I used the tutorial over at SCS here.  I also used the Poinsettia from D2D and printed it out 3 times in different sizes.  Then added some ribbon and it was done!

Here is another pic of the tag that pulls out.  All the directions are on the SCS tutorial page I mentioned above!  Now to see all the other fantastic inspiration, head on over to the Delightful Inspiration  for more ideas.

I hope you get a chance to play in this challenge, I'd love to see what you come up with!  Thanks for stopping by and have a super Memorial Day Weekend *Ü*

Morning!  I have a super short post for you today.  This card is made using the newest freebie from Designed2Delights progressive challenge, called Summer Days  If you played in the challenge last week then you got this one free in your inbox.

Way To Go Grad!

Good Afternoon!  I'm so glad it's Wednesday, the week's half over..yay!  Today I have a card that I made using two of the newest releases from Doodle Pantry!  This cute li'l duck is from the Ducky Duck set and the graduation hat and sentiment is from the Grad Hats set. 

My niece is graduating from the 5th grade very soon and so I thought this would be perfect to give to her. 

For this card I used dp from Cosmo Cricket Pixie-Licious.  This sketch I made up myself, the flowers are from M5D and the pearls and ribbon I got at the local craft store.  So there you have it!  I hope you hop on over to Doodle Pantry to see what the latest and greatest new releases are and maybe check out some of the not so new ones too.

  Also, remember to check out the challenge we have going on..just use a Doodle Pantry image and you'll recieve the ducky duck set for free!.  Thanks for stopping by,  and have a great rest of the week!

Happy Mother's Day ♥

Good Sunday morning!  First of all, I'd like to wish all the Mother's out there a Happy Mother's Day! ♥

Today I have another card I'd like to show you that is similar to the one I posted yesterday only different colors.  This one is for my mom.  The image is from Designed2Delights progressive challenge and is free this week for everyone to grab!   This pail of flowers is really very versatile and can be used for so many occasions. 

For my card, I used some dp from the Prima Marketing Annalee from M5D. The 2 pearls are from my stash and I used classic circle nesties!  I kinda used the sketch below but didn't put the stringy things on there, so I don't know if this will count!

We do hope you can join in this challenge and if you do, you will receive the next image free!!  Remember to link up by next Thursday night May 12th. 

Also, if you haven't done the Mother's Day hop  yet there's still time.  It ends tonight so hurry.  There will be something special at the end of the hop as well as a chance to win more free digis, just leave a comment on each of  the blogs in the hop for your chance!!

Edited To Add: I can't believe I forgot to mention the other challenge that's going on..Card Ideas has merged with the Delightful Inspiration blog so now you can see both challenges on one blog!!  So this week the challenge is to use a feminine image and this sketch, from my niece Carly, which is being sponsored by D2D.

♥Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great Mother's day and happy creating♥

Flutterby Fairy by D2D

Good Evening!  Here is a card I made using the Designed2Delights progressive challenge freebie.  She is called Flutterby Fairy.  If you were unable to participate in last weeks challenge, you can purchase her in the shop and still be able to get next weeks for free.  Just remember to link your creation by midnight on Thursday May 5. 

For my card I used some design paper I got at my local craft store and the sentiment hmmm...I don't remember where I got that from.  I think it was a freebie at one time so I'm real sorry I can't remember.   I added some tiny gems and also some twine I got from the twinery

Well that's about it for me today, I'll be back tomorrow with a new release and a couple of cards.  Have a great evening!!
