Piggy Dreams

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

It's time for challenge #8 at Open-Minded Crafting Fun.  Wow!  Our 8th challenge already.  We've had such wonderful participation.  I hope you've been joining in the fun.  Remember, there are at least four sponsors for every challenge which means you have at least four chances win!

My sponsor image is from 2 Cute ink.  This sweet little image is called Piggy Dreams, just perfect for our Easter or Pastel Colors challenge.

I've used papers from DCWV Nana's Baby stack, ribbon from my stash (purchased at our local flea market) and clear dots.  The flourish was sent to me by a dear crafting friend who keeps me supplied in delightful die cuts (thanks Sandy).

I colored the image with Copic markers.  I tried a little bit different background.  After using B0000 to bring out the focal image, I masked the image and added the subtle dots that I had punched in the mask.

Here's a list of our challenge #8 sponsors:

Dr. Digi's House of Stamps

Let it Rain

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's my design team day at Digi My World.   I'm sharing one of the adorable "Let it Rain Chelsea" images from the Digi My World store.  I love that the set includes a sentiment.  I think it's one we can all take to heart!

I colored Chelsea with Copic markers.  The paper is Echo Park.  The raindrops are from my stash.  I finished the card with a little twine bow and another raindrop.

Here are all the images that come with this darling set:
Let it Rain (Chelsea)


What the French Toast!?

Hi Crafty Friends,
Sorry I've been away for a bit.  We were driving to Texas to spend some time with our daughter.  We arrived Sunday and I have my temporary craft area set up so I've been creating.
Today is hubby's birthday so I used some cut files from SVG Cutting Files and got busy with the Silhouette.  Hubs loves Hershey Nuggets so how perfect are these little treat boxes?
This is the Candle Nugget Box (it has 6 different fronts!).
The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's So Many Birthdays set.  The paper is American Craft and the twine is from The Twinery.

This little treat box uses two of the newest cut files, Nugget Easel Drawer Box and Kawaii Wine Glasses (I didn't use the Kawaii faces).  The sentiment is another from Jaded Blossom's So Many Birthdays set.
This morning my daughter asked me to make a card for one of her players who got hurt this weekend.  I wanted it to be fun and make her laugh.  What do you think?
I used the Kawaii French Toast file and a sentiment from Jaded Blossom's Kawaii Sentiments.  The papers are Bo Bunny Double Dots and Bella Blvd.  
Thanks for stopping by.  I'll be back on my regular posting schedule this week with a new post for Digi My World tomorrow, Delightful Challenges on Thursday, and Open-Minded Crafting Fun on Saturday.

Hanging With My Peeps

Hello Crafty Friends,

 Today I'm sharing a darling image from Paper Crafting World called Chicky with Bunny Ears.  I love the whimsy of this image.  Creating Easter and spring cards using bunnies, chicks, and lambs just makes me happy.  The animals are so cute and the happy spring colors are so much fun to use.

The papers are from my Easter stash along with the stickers.  I used a Die-namics die for the grass and the sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom Easter Treats 2 set.

Be sure to visit Paper Crafting World to see the wonderful Easter and spring digital images and cut files.  I know you'll find just the right file for your next creation.

Sadly, this will be my final post for the Paper Crafting World Design Team Blog.  I started as a designer for Melin's Cooking with Cricut Challenge Blog and then moved on to her fabulous digis when we added Digi Desserts Fridaze to the blog.  It's been a wonderful experience working with Melin and all of the talented designers who have shared their creativity along the way.

Thank you, Melin, for your talent, creativity, friendship and love.  Paper Crafting World will always hold a special place in my heart.
