Some Twisted Stitching!


It's time for new challenge over at 
The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and our optional twist is to incorporate some stitching...real or faux!  That means you can get out all those twines, threads, sewing machine, or a gel pen or colored pencil!  Possibilities are endless!  

I used a rustic board print pattern paper from Polkadoodles and combined it with the versatile Happy Flowers Digi Set.  I chose this floral stamp set because there are so many options!  Perfect for anniversaries, birthdays, get well, thinking of you, etc!  You can also use bits and pieces and create backgrounds as I did for this card!

This card was designed in Cricut Design Space using the Print and Cut feature.  I flattened the blooms onto a rectangle shape and cut them from multi media paper so I could do some "faux" water color using Marvy and Tombow markers.  I simply scribble some ink onto a palette (tile from hardware store) and watercolor it on using inexpensive water brushes.  It doesn't take much water at all, so be aware!   

My flowers are off to the following challenges:

Relax!



Relax is the new optional them over at Path of Positivity!  There are so many ways to encourage those around us to relax and take it easy.  I thought it would be fun to remember some fun relaxing moments my little grandgirl had over the summer.  

And talk about relaxing, what could be more relaxing than making a digital scrapbook page!    

My page was created in my Notes program on my Mac using the delightful summer themed papers and embellies from Taste of Summer!  The papers are full of texture and summer fun!  Everything you see here is from Decosses Dynamite Doodles Taste of Summer Kit!

Be sure to come on 
over to 
and see 
what the team 
thinks about Relaxing!

Let them eat cake!....with veggies!


There's a new challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge!  

The team is challenged to create something related to Cake.  
Come and join us at where it is Anything Goes; can't wait to see you there!  

My card shows off Plant Pot Bunny from Polkadoodles!  I love carrot cake, but I'll confess this is not my recipe.  So, if anyone tries it before I do, let me know if it is a good one!  I really like a moist carrot cake with cream cheese icing, but I've gotten off track!

About this card...it features a recipe card for a friend who likes recipes!  I thought this bunny would be perfect since she has carrots around her.  I chose to embellish with a large orange gem and some carrots from the Polkadoodles Cottontail Craft Die Set The orange geometric pattern paper is from Polkadoodles Winnie Fruit Punch Paper Heaven 1!
