All Dressed Up store -} here. 

We will randomly pick a winner to receive 3 images of your choice, and our DT will choose their top 3 creations. All winners will be announced at the end of the month.
***I decided to jump onboard the "Slimline Card" train and try my hand on one-they are a lot of fun!  The image I used from All Dressed Up is called " I Love to Bake".  I added the black and white checked tablecloth, the pennant banners from KKS using a stencil and two of their rubber sentiments.  As this was my first SL card, it was a little awkward at first but it won't take long to get the hang of them and make several! On the inside, I was already to add a floral print with a black background when I happened to turn it over and found the b&w hounds tooth pattern!  What a perfect piece to use.  I'm so happy with this addition to my Birthday Card Stash!

The All Dressed up team hope you will play along with us and you have until the evening of the 14th July (UK time) to enter your cards with the link below. 

And don't forget to visit our Etsy Store to see all of Wendy's fabulous images. 
We can't wait to see what you all make!
See you again soon

And Relax.......

 All Dressed Up, as part of it's New Release, partnered with Kit and Clowder, providing them one of their newest images called And Relax.  It's just what we need to do in this crazy world of ours!

The image of the girl meditating is what can be found in the ADU Shop.  I added to the scene with png images of a yoga mat, a blank window, a floating candle shelf, and a potted plant.  These wonderful images were from downloaded digital files I ordered from TGF.  I used some paper for the wallpaper from a Honey Bee Stamps paper pack.  The TGF window I embellished with a hand drawn outdoor scene.  The baseboard was cut in a strip from a wood panel paper.  The sentiment is part of the image from ADU.

On the inside, I used a golden parchment paper and stamped the rainbow and sentiment from Gina K's stamp set, Be the Rainbow.  A saying I'd like to think I try to live by: "Be the rainbow in someone else's Cloudy Sky".

Hope you have a wonderful day and be sure and check out this image as a free drawing page on the K&C website.

Featuring Stay at Home image from All Dressed Up-New Release Day!

 Awww, Home Sweet Home....It's got a whole new meaning to us as a Nation, doesn't it?  Here in my State, we are still being asked to shelter in place and it definitely is getting a little old.
But like this sweet image, I love to read and my animals are always around.  So between that and working out in our rural garden, we are passing the time in a productive manner.
This Image called Time to Read can be found here in the All Dressed Up shop.  It's one of the new releases that we are revealing today from artist Wendy Burns.  This image includes the chair, reader, cat and dog.  I say this because I got a little creative and decided to do some paper piecing and using some other png images, I colored and fancy cut them and incorporated them into the "scene".  The rug, plant and framed picture on the wall all came from purchased scene builders from TGF.  The wallpaper is some complimentary paper and then I added a baseboard, moved the pieces around and created something that we can all relate to!
On the inside, I stamped a sentiment that works well with the setting.  This was a lot of fun to create-I'm hoping that you'll try it sometime with Wendy's images.  They come to you in a png format so you're able to move them around in your printing program and bring them forward and put them behind to create depth.  Let us see YOUR creations now!
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
