Welcome back to my blog!!  I'm super excited to share this card made for a wonderful friend who's granddaughter graduated this year.  I couldn't believe how excited she was when she got it.  So very appreciative of it and those people are the ones I love to commission cards for.  Thank you Marg!!!

As you can see I've used "Lovely" from Saturated Canary and popped her up on a bed of gorgeous papers from Maja Design.  

The grad cap is chipboard from Southern Ridge Trading Company and I've painted it black, covered it with Tim Holtz crackle then "frantaged" it.  Is that a word?  LOL!!

This tag is also from Southern Ridge Trading Company #TAG-047.  I covered it with some Maja Design paper, added some frantage, the "congratulations" labeler sentiment and then popped some pearls on it. 

Don't you just love resin pieces?  OMG if I could add one to every card that would be perfect!!  I'm getting quite a collection so that just might be possible.  LOL! 

Don't forget about my Tiddly Inks giveaway if you haven't signed up yet!

C.C. Designs and K&C Monthly Challenge

This time at Kit and Clowder we have C.C. Designs sponsoring the monthly challenge, which is

I got to play with this new image called "Margarita Time" now available.  Doesn't she look like she's enjoying her drink?!!  I even added some glossy accents to the drink, upon a great suggestion from one of my BF's.  Oh and the same BF helped me finish my image.  For some reason I was about 95% done and I just could not get it done so she came to my rescue.  LOL!!

I've used these new gorgeous papers from Maja Design I bought from Live and Love Crafts called "Coffee in the Arbour".  Seems like I waited FOREVER for new Maja papers!  LOL!!  Also from LLC are the Kort and Godt soft pink flowers called curly roses at the top and the white chrysanthemums. 

I've adorned it with my favorite Wild Orchid Craft flowers, a gorgeous Prima resin butterfly, an oh so stunning pearl rose ribbon and painted it up with gesso.  OH and isn't that "HELLO" paperclip from Maya Road the cutest?!

Short post today but I hope you liked my card.  Thanks for stopping by!

Kit and Clowder Monthly Challenge

Ok so this post is gonna be JAM PACKED today so bear with me!
A friend contacted me to make a few cards for her and sent me this sample to start with.  THE SECOND ROW, not the one with a square around it.  At first I thought it would be easy, until I tore apart my room to find matching papers and NODDA!  OMG NOW WHAT?!!
 M R Designs is what!!  She made up these papers especially for me and they are stinkin' PERFECT!!   Thank you Michele!
This chipboard sign is from Southern Ridge Trading Company so I just added some letters from my labeler and added some gesso!

And my favorite thing to do...add EMBELLISHMENTS and flowers!!  Love my Kort and Godt white chrysanthemums, my resin heart and metal deco from Live and Love Crafts one of the sponsors for this month's challenge at K&C!

So the new challenge going on at Kit and Clowder this month (one of my favorites!):

I have figured out some basics that help when you have to make one....lace, pastel colors, white, distressing and gesso!  That makes it easy!!  Check out all the other DT cards for inspiration at the K&C Challenge page on the website.  

This month K&C has 2 sponsors:

One Bird and One Butterfly

How strange to see something other than an image from me for the main focal point right?!  Well I just thought it showcased these chipboard pieces from Southern Ridge Trading Company so beautifully.  OH AND you even get to see more of my gorgeous Pion paper this way.  Yup, I know I cover lots of mine up but ... I don't believe in TOO many embellishments...EVAH!  LOL!  I actually held myself back from adding more to this one.  hee hee

So this butterfly number is #INS-082 and available in the SRTC store.  I covered it with Tim Holtz white crackle and it's as easy as that!!  LOL!

I kind of went a little crazy on this cutie "bird and leaves" piece but you can't see that.  LOL!  I added many colors of paint and crackle paint to the leaves until it got to this.  I covered the bird with some TH paint and then covered everything with TH crackle rock candy.  A little shiny but I like the finished look.  This isn't on the store yet but will be coming soon!

There you have it!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderfully creative weekend!
