Last Challenge sponsored by Diane’s Daydream Designs

Leave a comment

Today is a sad day as it is the last challenge being sponsored by Diane’s Daydream Designs. (There is still one going on that I hope to enter in with a DDD’s image but we will see if I get to it!) Diane honored the challenges she had signed up for January because she had no ideal till a couple days before January that the new VAT tax was going to shut down her business. So hopefully you will come over and play in Fan-Tastic Tuesday Challengeone layer card for a chance to win a prize pack of digital images from Diane’s Daydream Designs! Now technically mine is 2 layers because I laid the panel on the black card base but I just couldn’t have an all white card…this was as close as I was getting to a one layer card! I really like how this turned out because CAS cards is way out of my norm. This card was totally inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #82.

I saw it and new it would be perfect for a one layer card. I then saw the sheep and the ideal to put the two together was born!! I printed the sheep and “Love you” and then ran it through the embossing folder. The sheep didn’t look right embossed so I printed a second sheep and stuck it on top of the embossed one. Love my Xyron X!! Added some punched hearts I had left over from another project and there you have a CAS Valentine/Love card.

Love Ewe

Special Lady

The challenge today at Allsorts Challenge Blog is Lace & Pearls. I’m not a lace and pearls kind of girl…give me strips, polka dots and non frilly and I’m good. But I needed a birthday card for my 85 year old Aunt and thought she would like this image. So I figured I could “try” to do this challenge. I even went out and bought some lace!! The lace is on there even if you can’t see much of it! I used the sketch from Digi Sketch Challenge as my inspiration.

They love decorating their door/window area of their apartment.

Snow in Love!

Snow in Love

Oh my I’m having one of those morning that I’m awake but my brain is not! I seriously cannot think past just starring into space! Sorry this post is late but last night after work started to talking to hubby and lasted till bedtime.

I made this since I had been asked for cards that could be given to your better half instead of generic cards that are sent to everyone. I also got to use my new embossing folder I got from JoAnn’s! They were on sale right after Christmas and I couldn’t pass them up. Since I put the big piece of patterned paper in the middle I just embossed the top and bottom portions of the white paper and didn’t worry about the middle since the white is 5 x 5 and wouldn’t fit in the embossing folder.

CHALLENGES:

1) Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge #128 – Holidays! Can be any type of holiday…Christmas, Valentine’s, Easter, etc….or it could be a vacation trip or a place you would love to take a holiday!

SUPPLIES:

Digital Image: Snow in Love @ Deedee’s Digis

Cardstock: Bazzill

Patterned Paper:

Inks: colored in Photoshop then printed on Canon Inkjet Printer

Accent/Tools: Darci Embossing Folder (JoAnn’s)

Winter is warmed by friendship!

Inside: The chill of winter is warmed by friendship (comes with the digi stamp)

I don’t know why but it seems I forget my really close friends birthday. It has always been this way. You think I would remember them since they are my closest friends but what happens is I remember it is coming up then don’t think about it again till after it is gone…or I think their birthday is on a certain day but actually I’m usually a couple days off. So any who I’m always late wishing my bestest friend Cheryl happy birthday which is in November. So I decided this year I’m going to send her a card every month so when it comes to November I will send her birthday card! Plus we need to chat more and I make all these wonderful cards so why not send them to the people that mean the most. That’s my goal this year….let’s see how well I do at it. It is halfway through January but still in January so I’m still good if I get the card in the mail this week!

This month I decided to do a winter friendship card since it fit the cold spell we had these past two weeks. I used Deedee’s Digis Digi of the Month image – Ice Fishing. (when you get to the store click on the area you live in EU residents or Non-EU Residents. Then you will see a tab for Digi of the Month…click on that.) This adorable digi is FREE this month till Feb 1st AND if you make a project with it and link it to the challenge you will get a $10.00 coupon to the store AND next month’s image FREE. Since the store is 75% off till the end of the month you can get a lot free for $10.00. And you can enter as many times as you want.

Cancer Encouragement card

1 Comment

Bone Cancer Encouragment-email

A couple weeks ago I got in touch again with a friend that I met through a challenge. She told me that in December her 18 yoa son was diagnosed with bone cancer…he has 2 tumors in his hips. I asked her if it would be weird if I sent him an encouragement card and she said no that he would like it. She was actually trying to find ways to get cards sent to her son during this journey. So I wanted a simple and manly card since it was going to an 18 year old male. When I saw sketch #93 at CAS(E) this Sketch I knew it would be perfect for this digital image from Diane’s Daydream Designs. Unfortunately Diane’s had to close shop because of the new VAT tax law in Europe but I can still play with her images and pout that they are no longer available.
