WW Weekly Challenge "Winter Wonderland"

Hi Everyone, 
Happy Wednesday!!
Yeap, it's that time again for another Whimsical Design Weekly Challenge.
This week theme is called "Winter Wonderland"
We had to include Sparkle and one or more Snowflakes. 

So, here is my card this week:

Do you all like it?  I thought this reminded me of a Winter Wonderland. 
I just love Snowglobes and I hope you do too. 

I used a stamp from Inkadinkado that I got from AcMoore last year.  I use more of that paper from Michaels.  I can't remember the name of it.  LOL!!  I used this paper on a previous card.  I thought it worked perfectly with this one too.  I embossed the Snowglobe on vellum with detail white embossing powder.  I fussy cut it out and backed it with Bazzil cardstock from my stash.  Punched out snowflakes from my tonic punches.  Added some bling on the paper, snowflakes and banner.  I also embossed Merry Christmas from Whimsical Designs Stamps - Snow Much Fun.  Lastly I added some natural ric rac trim I got at Joanns.  

I hope you all love my card.  
Come back soon for an Whimsical Designs Valentine blog hop this Friday, Feb 1st - 3rd.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Don't forget to stop by Whimsical Desgins Blog to check out the rest of the teams Fabulous projects this week.

WW Weekly Challenge - "All About Love"

Hello My Bloggie Friends, 
I'm hoping you all are having a fantastic Wednesday.  Guess what today is?
Yes, it's another weekly Challenge at 

This weeks theme is "All About Love"
You know that Valentine's Day is just around the corner and this challenge just put me in the mood for LOVE... 

This week we all used the Whimsical Designs Stamp Set 
called "With Love". 
It's such a great set for this lovely Holiday. 

Here is what I created:
Altered TP Roll
 Yes, you heard me... It's a TP (toilet paper) roll.  I thought this would be the perfect project for this week. 
Don't you think?

I'm also entering this into Lydia's (ItripledogdareU on Youtube).  
Here is a Video Link to her challenge, if you are interested in entering. 

I flatten the TP roll on one side only to form a pocket.  I covered the TP with a Vintage Key tissue paper, I got from Michaels with modpodge.  I also modpodge a red doily heart that I got from Target too.  I used a cameo from the embossed chipboard pieces from Michaels.  I covered it with white acrylic paint and used sandpaper to shave off the paint off the raised areas. Added some pearl trim and a butterfly trim piece to the cameo.  I also added glossy accents to the center of the cameo.  Distress the heck out of it with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain distress ink.  I also distress and used some flowers from Trico.  Tucked a felt heart in the back of the cameo.  Stamped the Sentiment from Whimsical Designs Stamps set - With Love in Real Red SU ink.  Cut a banner out and distress the edges.  Added  a stick pin I made for a swap I was in at MSR Ning Site.   At the top and bottom of the TP I added some lace and pearl trim from my stash.  Lastly, I used some flower lace trim for the handle to my TP pocket. 

Thanks everyone for stopping by today!
Have a great week.  I'll be back soon.

Hey Dude!

Hi Everyone, 
I know what you are saying "What another post?" :-)
This one is a birthday card I made for my brother.  His birthday was yesterday... I know, I'm late.  
But it's better late than never, Right?   LOL!! 

So, I had to make a masculine card... You know how I loath them.  
I'm not very good at them but I do my best.  
I used one of my The Greeting Farm Stamps called Special Autumn.
This is the first time I colored a male image and I think I did pretty good. 
It was really simple since I paper pieced his outfit.  LOL!!

Here is my card:

I'm loving these stamps from TGF...  They are so easy to color and I love how proportionate he is. LOL!

I finally busted out my Graphic 45 - Proper Gentermen collection.  This another A2 card.  I used the Spellbinders - Label 1 dies.  I don't know what brand the denium paper.  sorry!  I used the the Sentiment from the Greeting Farm - My Guy Ian.  Then I used the sentiment from Whimsical Designs from the Everyday Sentiments set inside the card.  Lastly, I added some Recollection bling from Michaels.

I think he will like this card.  He may not like his hair... hehe!!

**  Let's not forget the Whimsical Designs Weekly Challenge is Tomorrow.  Please stop by and enter for a great prize. **

I hope you all enjoy this card...  and Yes, I will be back tomorrow. 
Have a Great Tuesday, Everyone!!

Take care and Hugs,

WW "Anything Goes" Weekly Challenge

Hi Everyone!

I'm so excited to share my first project I created for Whimsical Designs Weekly Challenge.
This Week was called "Anything Goes" and I went with a Tri-Shutter 
Birthday Card. 
I love making these cards.  I had to make a birthday card for my big sis and this is 
what I came up with. 

I hope everyone likes.  

I used a 5-1/2 x 12' thin chipboard.  Score it at 2", 4", 8", and 10".  Turn cardstock a 1/4 turn. 
Along the long edge measure in 1-1/2".  Cut a slit between score marks 2" and 10".  Repeat on the other side.  

I used papers from Glitz Designs. Matted the pattern paper with light blue Bazzil cardstock.  I cut out dies from my Spellbinders Shapeabilities - Fancy Tags 3 and Ironworks Accents.  Used Happy Birthday stamp from Michaels (I didn't receive Stephanie's stamps until this Monday).  I also used a stamp from AcMoore, which I always seem to use.  LOL!!  I added some seam binding, a button and black and white flat back pearls.  Lastly, I used my MFT dies the Large and Mini Rolled Roses with the pattern paper.

Please stop by and check out the rest of the teams projects at
