WW "Sketch It"

Hi my Bloggie Friends, 

Today, I'm here to share another Whimsical Design Wednesday Challenge. 
This week is called "Sketch it".  We were asked to use a Sketch that our DT Sister Nanne created.  
Thanks Nanne for the wonderful Sketch. 

Here is the sketch:

Secondly, we also were asked to use a digi image from 
Shelly Images called "Beary Smart". 
They are our wonderful Sponsor this Week.
Winner will receive a $9.00 voucher 

Here is my card that I created for this week's challenge:

I used the paper from G45 - An ABC Primer collection that I got from my Local AcMoore.
I printed, colored and fussy cut the image out.  I used my copics to color the sweet bear image.   I cut out a tag and mat it with black card stock.  I added the bear like he was sitting on the pile of books.  I also cut out some tickets out from the paper as well.  I used a doily from Julie's Etsy store thepaperbaglag.  I stamped  a sentiment from Whimsical Designs - Whimsical Fun Vol. 1 set.  I thought it when perfectly with this card.  
I also used a Spellbinder die from Floral Doily Motifs for the swirl and added some black flat back pearls from my stash.  
That's it.  I think it turned out super cute. 

MARK your calendars for another BLOG HOP!!

WW Challenge - "Going Green"

Hi Everyone, 
Happy Wednesday!! Do you know what that means?
It's another Challenge at Whimsical Designs!! :)

This week's Challenge is "Going Green".  We had to add green to our projects. 
And we were also asked to use an image from A Day for Daisies, who are our wonderful Sponsor this week. 

The lucky winner will receive a $12.00 Gift Certificate to use on their site. 
Awesome prize.  I really love their images.  

Here is the card and image I used:
Isn't this the cutest image?  I think so and I know what I was going to use this for.  I chose "happy hot air balloon".  I would also use this on a page layout too.   

As you can see, I colored the image with my copics.  I cut some circles out and folded them in half and glue them together to add this 3D effect to this cute card.  I cut out some fluffy clouds from my Memory Box Dies.  Stamped out this perfect sentiment from Whimsical Designs - "Everyday Sentiments".  Then I hand cut the fishtail out for my sentiment.  

That's it.  I will upload my video Click Here for my video for more information.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Please check out the other Designers on their wonderful projects over at Whimsical Designs.  

Hugs,

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!!

Happy Valentine's Day, Everyone!

Love is in the air.  
I have been busy all morning and I had to share some things that I made for my son's class and for his teachers this year. 

I hope everyone is sharing some LOVE with each other today.  

Let me show you the bags I put the crayons in for my son's class. 
 I got the image from internet.  I thought it fit perfectly.  I used some treat bags that i got from Target.  

Here is a picture of one of my son's teacher's gift

I used the target mailboxes and covered it with paper.  I made a 3x3 card with some paper from American Craft and I used my Martha Stewart Scallop Lace punch again.  Love that punch. 

My Kids decorated the mailboxes with trims, foam hearts, felt hearts, and plastic hearts I got last year. 

Their teachers loved them. 

Thanks everyone for stopping by today. 

Have a great Valentine's Day!!  

Hugs,

So here is my card:
 Its a very simple card but I love it. 

Recipe:
Cardstock: Cream and Red Bazzil Cardstock

Punches:  Retired Martha Stewart Scallop Lace Heart Punch and Ek Success punch 
(Not sure the name of it)
Stamps:  "With Love" from Whimsical Designs

Cream Satin Ribbon from my stash.

Valentine's Goodies the beginning

Hi Everyone, 
I can't believe Valentine's is just around the corner.  I was like what!!  
So, right now I'm in the middle of valentine overload here. 

I here today to share a sneak peak of what I'm making for my Son's School Valentines Party.  
They requested "NO Candy" but can be homemade.  
So, I found this idea on Pinterest.  Here is the LINK, if you want to try out too. 

Here it is... It just the beginnings of something.  I will show the finish idea later. 
Are these not the cutest crayons you ever seen?

They are quite big but its ok.  I love them. 

Here is the Silicone mold I used:
I got this at Target for 3 bucks.  

I'm not sure if I'll be putting this on a 3x3 card or just put it in a cute valentine's bag and call it a day. 
what do you all think?

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peak.
I hope you like this and I'll be back. 

Hugs,

WW Challenge "Textiles"

Happy Wednesday, Everyone!!
I really hate being sick so, I'm glad I had finished this project in time for the challenge. 

I'm here today with a project for Whimsical Designs weekly Challenge. 
This week the challenge is to use Textiles.  Such as Ribbon, Lace, Twine or any other type of textiles to our projects.

This weeks Sponsor is Freckled Fawn.
 They will be giving away a $20.00 Gift Certificate for the Winner.
Here is my take on this:

I altered a mason jar with lace, trims and such.  I also turned it into a pin cushion that I got the idea from Youtube.  Here is the Video that I cased the idea from. 
I have been wanting to make one of these and I thought what perfect timing with this challenge. 

I used lace, crochet lace, pleated lace trim, flatback pearl trim, and flowers from my stash. 
I just bought the material for the pin cushion part from my local Joanns.  I love this.  

I plan to either store my buttons in this or use a flame-less tea light inside. 

Thanks everyone for stopping by and taking a peak.

I hope you all have a fantastic Wednesday and don't forget to check all the wonderful projects that my fellow  teammates have created over at Whimsical Designs.  

You are all welcome to take part in the challenges as well.  There will be prizes for the lucky winners.  
You don't want to miss out. 

Big Hugs,
