Sympathy Flower Watering Can card

 Hello and happy Monday.  Today I'm sharing a card for the latest Anything Goes Catch the Bug challenge.  The challenge is now every other Saturday which gives you two weeks to enter!

My card features Flower Watering Can from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Copics, and the sentiment is from a Stampin' Up's Paper Pumpkin kit.  Simple design, considering the type of card.  I do struggle with sympathy cards and usually purchase something instead, but I'm giving it a go.

I've added a bit of sewing as well as touches of glaze.  Simple layout.  Monochromatic.

That's it from me today.  I thank you for taking a look and hope you have a wonderful week.

This meets the following challenges:  A Bit More Time to Craft: Anything Goes, Jan's Digi Stamps Challenge: Anything Goes, The Crafter's Cafe: Flowers, and Daisy Chain: Monochrome.

Spring Bumble Bee Hello card

 Hello and happy Friday!

I'm here with a reminder about the current Anything Goes challenge at Corrosive Challenge blog.  You have until April 2 to enter.

I'm featuring Spring Bumble Bee by Star Stampz.  I made my background using a hexagon punch, putting yellow punches on yellow CS for an embossed look.

I added a few drops of glaze to look like dew drops, as well as glaze on the petals and other areas.  The layout might seem a bit strange, but that's because I messed up the sentiment and ended up covering it with the image to save the card, and moving the sentiment to the top.  Hopefully it doesn't look too "off."

So you still have one more week to enter the anything goes challenge!  Thank you for taking a look.

This meets the following challenges:  Creative Knockouts: Friendship, Krafty Chicks: All Occasion, Fab N Funky: Flowers, and Watercooler Wednesday: All About Occasions.

Ice Cream Cone Stack Birthday Card

 Hello.  I know it's already March but I just thought of a new years resolution - actually post my creations online!  So let's see how I do from here on out.

Today I'm sharing a card for the latest Catch the Bug challenge: Anything Goes.  Yes, this challenge is just about over, but for those of you who are quick or who have something already ready, please join in!

Either way, I want to share this since I thought the image, Sweet Treats Set from Bugaboo Stamps, is just adorable.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Itty Bitty Banners set, heat embossed onto brown cardstock.  I actually pulled out my sewing machine for this one.

 I added a touch of glaze and popped up the fussy cut image for a little dimension.  The colors are quite bland so I had to throw in some strawberry (or raspberry) ice cream for a bit of pop.

That's it for me.  I wish you a wonderful Friday!

This meets the following challenges: Creative Fingers: Anything Goes, Polkadoodles: Anything Goes, Creative Knockouts: Birthday Wishes, and Crafty Creations: Anything Goes.

Pretty Possums Sunflowers Hello Card

 Hello and hope all is well.  I'm here with a short post today.  I'm sharing a card for the latest Corrosive Challenge: Anything Goes.  It runs through the end of the month so there is still time to get in on the challenge!

I'm featuring digi stamp Pretty Possum's Sunflowers by Colour of Love.  The sentiment is a die from My Favorite Things.  I colored the image with copics, did a little bit of sewing, and left this flat for easy mailing.

So join in the Corrosive Challenge if you get chance!
