Alrighty then. First up is a card for the current Fusion Challenge. Simply amazing cake in the photograph, but my brain said, "no...you're not using flowers today." I did try to work around it, but the brain seemed only to go in one direction. *sigh* I did use the colors and the sketch as you'll soon see. This card will also head over to SSS Wednesday Challenge where it's 'Anything Goes.'
And I did manage to sneak in a flower despite my brain's objection. Sheesh!
I found this utterly sweet blue polkie dotted paper in a 6x6 pad from Pebbles. Cut an MFT flourish with a yellow scrap and used an Avocado Arts stamp in ME Smoke ink to pick up on the grays in the cake. A yellow Prima Marketing (ancient) chrysanthemum and the white flag is MFT.
I also made a tag card for the Tag You're It Challenge. If this amazing design by Lynn Put doesn't help to bring on the summery sunny skies, then I don't know what will! Check it out:
Uh-huh. Totally love it! I didn't have a strawberry stamp (gee...I should remedy that, shouldn't I?! lol), so I used some cherries.
All the papers are scraps (trying so hard to use them up...yeah, like that will ever happen...) except my Michaels whites. PTI's tags in white and red, LF stamps, MB cherries accented in GA, ribbon scraps, and a few blings. Just kind of fun.
Next, is a little card for Time Out. I'd like to encourage you all to head on over and play along. Miss Deepti is GD there, and as a prize, one lucky winner will acquire her new stamp set. Yes, you heard right, Deepti designed a set (put out by STAMPlorations) that is scrumptious!!! So happy for her! Here is her inspiration card:
There are so many interesting elements on her card. I was inspired by the chalkboard and gingham elements, as well as the flowers.
Using my Silhouette, I printed out my chalkboard 'happy birthday,' and found this scrap in the dp scrapbox. A couple of crocheted flowers, (and as Miss Darnell would say...) "Shazambam," done! I hope it does Deepti's inspiration justice.
And last but certainly not least, a card for CASology, where the Cue Card this week is:
Now, as soon as I saw this, I knew I wanted to play along. It wasn't until yesterday though, that a PING began to bounce off the interior of my skull, and there was no other option. So raise your hand if you've ever seen the film. By today's standards, it's pretty hokey, but still, a love story is a love story. I will disagree with one of the most often quoted lines from this movie..."Love means never having to say you're sorry." Yeah, no. Though I'm never wrong (hahahahahahahahaha) about anything, and never at fault for anything (hysterical haha's now), I actually do say "I'm sorry" to DH (the love of my life). This card will go to him for our July anniversary. Because this is exactly what we have:
Started with a Michaels white base. Found a photo of the iconic "LOVE" online, then went to the Silhouette where I chose a font, skewed the 'O' and welded and cut. Scraps back the square, and the black part of the sentiment was computer generated.
Long post, I know. So I'll stop jabbering now, and get a few things done before I play like a child with four little children. Happy dances everyone!
