Christmas Crafts All Year Round Mid-May DT Inspiration Post

Howdy folks!  It's that time of the month again.  That's right, it's time for the CCAYR Christmas Belles team to dazzle you with our makes for this month's challenge, which is "Anything Goes."  Here is what I created:


 This is IMG911, which was a freebie that Sherri Baldy had offered up as a freebie a few months ago.  When I saw her used on a card with a link to that freebie, I practically *RAN* to the My Besties site to grab her.  I just think she is SO CUTE!!!
I colored her in my favorite blue alcohol marker combo, and then decided to keep the blue going with the rest of the card.  It may not be matchy-matchy, but I still think it looks good.

Challenges:

12 Months of Christmas Link Up #41:  ATG or optional "Make it Feminine"
C.R.A.F.T Challenge:  Christmas
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper:  ATG using patterned paper
My Besties International:  ATG or optional "Girls just wanna have fun"
Christmas at Sweet Stampin':  ATG Christmas
Crafting by Designs:  Enjoy the little things
Crafty Gals Corner #165:  Add a flower
CHNC #385:  ATG Christmas or optional "include a tree or 2"

Thanks so much for stopping by this evening!  Make sure to check out the CCAYR blog for this month's challenge, and join in!

Take care and God Bless!

Sasayaki Glitter May Challenge: FLOWERS

That's right it's all about those "May flowers" this month at the Sasayaki Glitter blog!  So let's get right to it, shall we?  


I used the adorable Lucy's Flowers image for my card.  The designer paper is again from the Hello Sunshine 6x6 pad from Doodlebug.  Spellbinders Curved Rectangles was used to cut the layers for my card, and....


I made an easel card!  Sometimes I get bored with making regular old rectangular or square shaped cards, so the easel card is an easy way to deviate from the standards.  For my sentiment, I wanted to do that a bit differently also, so I grabbed my Enjoy stamp and die set from Jillibean Soup.


I wanted to use "Enjoy" as my stopper, so I die cut it from white fun foam to glue underneath the stamped image.  Before I glued it down to my base, I used the banner die to cut the Life! sentiment from the same set, and glued it to the bottom of the "j" and "y".  And that was it!

Challenges:  

Sweet Stampin':  Flowers
Create and Inspire #73:  ATG or optional use dies or stencils
Outlawz Monday Greetings:  Flowers with some green

That's all for me tonight!  Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, and I hope you will take some time to stop by the Sasayaki Glitter blog to check out what the other Dt members have created.  Don't forget to check out the gallery too!

God Bless!

Christmas With The Cuties-----Let It Snow!

Howdy crafters!  Sorry my card is so late for the challenge over at the Christmas With The Cuties blog...there was a bit of a mix-up, but all is well now!  Have a look:


Our sponsor for this challenge is Pink Gem Designs

Their images are so cute!  The one I chose to use is Chilly With Birdhouse, and I used the pre-colored version.  I love having a pre-colored version, especially when pressed for time, as I was this month!  LOL!  My sentiment comes from the Merry and Joy stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps.  I was practically drooling over this stamp set when it came out, and this is the first I have ever used it!  Shameful, I know.  The cute designer paper comes from the MME Merry 6x6 pad.

Challenges:

12 Months of Christmas Link Up #40:  ATG or optional "Feline Festive" theme
Crafting by Designs:  Getting ready for Christmas
Fab 'n' Funky #391:  Christmas
The Paper Shelter #336:  Die cuts (I used Spellbinders dies to cut out my image and the mat underneath it)
Happy Little Stampers Christmas:  ATG or optional "jolly" twist
Happy Little Stampers:  ATG w/dies
The Cutie Pie Challenge:  Delightful Digis


Well, that is all for this evening.  Thanks so much for stopping by...if you have the time, please also stop by the Christmas With The Cuties blog and check out the other DT creations, and those of the participants!

Sasayaki Glitter-----April Reminder Post

Greetings bloggers!  I hope you are all having a good week so far...Happy Hump Day!  LOL!  It's all downhill from here...


But anyway, I am here to show you what I made for the April reminder post over at the Sasayaki Glitter blog:




I apologize for the lackluster photo, but I was in a hurry to get it posted, and it was past my bedtime!  LOL!  This cutie is Elly the Elephant Dancing...isn't she adorable?  She sure looks like she is dancing like nobody is watching.  I wish I could feel more like that at times!   LOL!  The cute green checkered paper comes from the "hello sunshine" 6x6 paper pad from Doodlebug.  Although this paper was released in 2014, I just recently purchased it at Hobby Lobby, and I love it!  So cute!!  I happened to have a green card stock in a pack of brights that was a perfect match, so I went with a monochromatic look for this card.  The sentiment comes from a miscellaneous alphabet set.


Challenges:


The Cutie Pie Challenge #122:  Delightful Digis (use a digital stamp)
Sweet Stampin:  Animals
Create and Inspire #73:   ATG or optional use dies/stencils




I used the top row across for my BINGO card, the image is cut using a Spellbinders hexagon die.

CHN Patterend Paper:  ATG with patterned paper
Happy Little Stampers:  ATG with dies



Well, I must head off to bed now, so I'll sign off.  Thanks for stopping by, and have a great rest of the week!  

God Bless!

Sasayaki Glitter March Reminder Post

Hey bloggers!  Sorry this post is so late compared to the Sasayaki Glitter blog post, but I got sick with strep on Saturday, and have been down for the count ever since.  So without further delay, here is what I created:


Aren't these Winter Bunnies just so cute?  I was so glad to be able to add them to my arsenal of adorable Christmas digi stamps.  I decided to break out this cute piece of tree paper from the Gingerbread Cottage Craft Smith 6x6 paper pad, and let that determine my coloring and card stock choices.  The sentiment comes from the Lawn Fawn Christmas Dreams stamp set.  I just thought the hand written font fit the image pretty well.  I added some sparkle to the snow with some Stickles, and used a white gel pen to add some details to the scarf of the white bunny, and to the hat of the standing bunny.

Challenges:

The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up #39:  ATG or optional "beary Christmas" theme
Happy Little Stampers Christmas:  ATG or optional "reindeer" twist

Well, thanks for stopping by to visit today!  Be sure to visit the Sasayaki Glitter blog to join in the March challenge of "Friendship," and to check out everybody else's makes!  Until next time, take care and God Bless!
