Delicious Doodles is BLOSSOMING at Seems a Little Sketchy this week!

Oh I might be back among the living today--My humble apologies to all the ladies at Seems a Little Sketchy for my late post!  There was some stomach flu going around our area and this weekend must have been my turn.
I put together this card with a great image from Delicious Doodles called Blossom several days ago using this unique sketch from SALS and then couldn't crawl to the computer!  I rotated the design and then used clear dew drops for my "flags" at the top-blue satin ribbon for the band at the bottom.  I adore this image so I die cut the embossed card front all the way through so that it would focus on the image/coloring.  A complimentary softer background paper is in the inside and then you can see the rest of the image! There are several different "styles" of these gorgeous gals at DD so go and take a look!  You won't regret it!

I'm CAMPING out at Doodle Pantry for some Ideas!

 I think this would be a great card to send to your "little camper" while they're away from home at Summer Camp! It's made using the Happy Trails Camper set from Doodle Pantry, newly released in July.  From the great woodland paper, to all the camping accessories that are included in the set--it's all very inspiring!  I added the white shape to represent the moon, piled on the sleeping rolls-popping one up for dimension.  Put a little sand colored Flower Soft around the Camp Fire.  The sentiments shown as well as the solid papers are all included in the set.  Today is the last day to get this set FREE with a purchase from Doodle Pantry-and they have so many options for you to choose from!  Thanks for stopping by!

New Birthday card Layout!

I really can't take credit for this creation I've just made--I saw something similar at Pinterest and fell in love.  So much so I went to the internet to purchase the Darcie folder that had the corner butterfly embossed scene.  Luckily, I had some beautiful butterfly die cuts from some dear friends at Your Scrapbook Place 'cause they just Make the card POP!  Then I put some pearls on them for accents.  The inside has a complimentary floral print and a stamped sentiment.  I always need Birthday cards and am so happy to have some new ideas for them-so many different possibilities!  Thanks for looking and hope you come back real soon!

Let's get aROUND to entering Squigglefly's latest Challenge!

 Yep that's right~ This week's Squigglefly challenge for Rhonda's Rowdy Rascals is to make a round card!  Some people, like I've been in the past, are a little intimidated by making circle cards-that it's a little harder to get items spaced around it.  But we'd love to see anything that you come up with!!
The image that I've using this week is called Bird Watcher by James Horvath.  I'm having such fun using his wild and sometimes wacky images!  I thought of this cute bluebird paper by Frances Meyer and used it on a scalloped circle scored card blank by The Paper Cut.  That's the company that I also got my shaker large circle pouch for my seed beads from.  They have a lot of different sizes.  The butterfly and pearl accent are from my stash.  The set also includes some binoculars which I used on the inside along with a sentiment from my computer.  Come on and join in the fun-the winner gets a free image from the vast group of artists!

I'm OVER THE EDGE at Squigglefly this week-Great Challenge!

This week's Squigglefly challenge is called "Over the Edge."  Something on your card must extend over the edge of your card.  That could include your image, and embellishment, or even some lace.  Check out all the wonderful examples below.  We'd love for you to use a Squigglefly image, to be prize eligible it's required, but everyone is welcome to play along.
I used this adorable image called Hungry Dog by James Horvath .  This reminds me so much of OUR dogs waiting around last week when we had a cook-out for my husband's birthday!  He is so cute!  There are a lot of new artists at the Squigglefly shop and James is one with a lot of cute images.  I've extended the card by placing the Grill off the top corner and by making some "smoke vapors" coming off the hot coals that I'm sure are in the grill!  Come on over and play along with Holley's Hobbists as they show you their creations.  Have fun!

New DT team announced for Southern Girls Challenge--Welcome aboard Gals!

I'd like to welcome all the new DT team members to our little home away from home.  This term there were so many great entries that Lou, our leader from NZ, couldn't pass up the talent sooooo she just expanded our 2 teams!  What fun~we're an eclectic group of artists with ones that like page layouts, creations with LOTS of texture and materials, cardmakers, framed pieces--so many options we now have.  Our 2 Teams take turns every 3 weeks and we've had some great sponsors and prizes.  Please if you have time, check out the blogs listed on the side bar for some great ideas from around the world.  It's amazing how everyone has a different interpretation of Scrapbooking in different countries.  So Glad to Have you All on the SGC Team!

A Little "Cookie" for me at Seems a Little Sketchy's Challenge this week!

Our sponsor this week at Seems a Little Sketchy is Robyn's Fetish.  They have been so tremendous to us throughout the year!  This is the sketch we're to use on this 2-week challenge and as you can see, I've turned mine for a different look.  I've got a granddaughter that loves to cook, as does her Dad, so this might be a "whatcha doin'" card heading her way.

This image is called My Little Cook and I colored her with copics, the circle accents are mounted on mini b&w dot paper and are actually clip art images from the internet. I used internet font and a cooking set of stickers for the inside interest.
We'd love for you to come and visit and JOIN in our challenge--the winner will get 3 digital images from Robyn's great site!  So well worth the effort!  See you there!
