Daisy Doodles Free week!

Hey everyone-

It is our free week at Daisy Doodles so that means you are allowed to do whatever as long as you used a Daisy Doodles image!  I am so bad at this because I have a had time with being FREE since there is no schedule so I am lazy!  This means I am trying to get 2 cards done instead!  I can’t seem to have leniency because I procrastinate!

Well I made a card using Freddy (from the Freddy series) for a 1 year old birthday.  What is better yet is there is only one candle too! Let me show it to you:

Free week 2-24

Supplies:  Freddy, Ribbon:  ?,Paper:  DCWV, embellies (Cupcakes) No idea, Spellbinders, Stickles, Prismacolor and Gamsol.

I used a sketch (kinda) from Cardmaker’s Birthday sketch book changing it up a small bit.  I did the bow separate from the other ribbon so that I could put it where I wanted it.  I really like how it came out!  I also wanted to have a sparkly frosting so I added Stickles to the cupcake and the part Freddy is eating plus the drip!  Hope you like it!  I will be back on Monday with Happileigh Scrappin and Daisy Doodles sketch challenge!  I have a great project for this sketch!  Make sure you stop back!

Inspiration photo challenge at Dude Time Doodles

Hey everyone-

I almost blew it today by revealing my blog hop card thinking it was already next week!  I had to get it done because the girls and I are going away for the weekend since James is traveling for work!  So I was working ahead of time which is unusual for me, LOL!!

It is only photo challenge week!  The colors are wonderful in this makes you think of Spring and Summer!  Let me share it with you:


I chose to use this months freebie for my card.  Here it is:

Daisy Doodles Challenge-Valentine with color and shimmer!

Hey everyone-

First things first, the reason you came.  If you are visiting today it is to see what is going on at the wonderful blog of Daisy Doodles!  There are awesome images available by Jules!  They are cute and best part is they can be used for almost everything!  If you check out the challenge 27 you will get be able to get the Valentine Sentiments free and it is what I used for my card this week!  It is a great set of sentiments especially for free! 

I recently did a major shopping spree for myself, well kind of.  It seemed like a big spree but everything was small!  LOL  I did get a couple new books and one was to help me use my Spellbinders better!  I tried one of the idea’s in the book and there are great tips too!  Anyway, I decide to try one of the ideas which was to make a window card!!!  It kind of worked but kind of didn’t!  LOL

Here is my so called window card:

Feb 14th challenge

What do you think?  I would say that if you tried this technique not to use the foil paper (my red strip) since it makes easily!!!  I also tried another technique which was to use the die and color around it.  I waited until after the sentiment was cut so it did not work like it showed in the book but pretty close.  I use red and left a white edge around it.  Next time I will color around the die first with ink then cut it to give it a layered look but I like how this came out!  The sentiment is actually on the inside of the card so you see it through the window.  I then added the tied red bow and the heart to add an extra touch to the window.  The sketch is one I saw at Paper Craft Planet with some changes!

Supplies:  Image, Paper:  Martha Stewart & Kraft, Ribbon:  $1 bin Target, Gems:  Recollections and Heart:  Dress it up!

Thanks for stopping by!  I will be coming up with some questions or polls for all of you regarding card making, challenges, and groups!  Check back soon!  As always please check out my team mates fantastic creations!!!!!!

For the Happileigh Scrappin challenge please check the last weeks post as we are continuing that weeks challenge!  Smile
