The Paper Funday Challenges - Anything Goes with a Twist

Hello and Happy June!  This year is flying by and it's so hot here in Florida already...and it's not even summer yet.

It's time for a new challenge at The Paper Funday Challenges and the theme this month is Anything Goes with an Optional Twist:  Something for the Guys

I created a mixed media Art Tag for my husband instead of the traditional Father's Day card.  I thought it was masculine enough without the usual cars, motocycles, tools, BBQ, etc that is typically reminiscent of Father's Day.  I'm pleased with it and I hope it likes it.


Please join us this month for the challenge.  The prize for the month will be  packages of stickers for your scrapbooking, cardmaking and paper crafting needs.

Until next time,  Happy Crafting!

The Paper Funday Challenges - Anything Goes with a Twist

Hello Everyone!  I hope you are ready for May....where did April go?

Today starts a new challenge at The Paper Funday Challenges and the theme for May is Anything Goes with a Twist:  Something for Mother.

I created 2 Mother's Day cards for my design team submissions.  The first card measures 6" square and is a hand drawn image by me that I watercolored.  I wanted to create something bright and cheery and I do think this accomplished that.


 My second card was created using a digital stamp from A Day for Daisies titled Blooms in a Tea Cup.  It was fun to color up and I think a teacup of flowers is perfect for Mom.  This card is the standard A2 size (4.25" x 5.5").


We hope you will join us this month for the challenge at The Paper Funday Challenges.  The challenge runs until 02 June and the sponsor this month is All Dressed Up Stamps.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Penny's Paper Crafty Challenges - Hetty Clare

Hi, I'm back with another challenge for today.  This time, it's a new one at Penny's Challenges and the sponsors for this week are Hetty Clare and The Paper Shelter.

For my design team project, I've used this sweet image from Hetty Clare named Summer Picnic.  It's so adorable, I just love the ducks!


I kept this 5" square card fairly simple, only adding some Wink of Stella for sparkle.  I mounted the focal image straight to the card base.  Just a lovely Spring/Summer image.

Please join us at Penny's this week, we would love to have you.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Creative Knockouts - Coffee and Cake

Hello Everyone!  I hope you're all well and looking forward to your weekend!  Today starts a new challenge at Creative Knockouts and the sponsor this round is SheepSki Designs, the theme is Anything Goes.

For my design team project today, I used SheepSki's image Coffee and Cake.  I love this image and did some fussy cutting; separating the cake and the coffee to create a scene for my A2 sized card.


My designer papers are from the Bo Bunny Sweet Moments Collection 6x6 paper pad.   I picked up this pad at Tuesday Morning for $2.99...can you believe it?!  What a score!

Please join us at Creative Knockouts for the challenge, we would love to have you and would love to see your beautiful creations.

Also, I would like to invite you to the The Paper Funday Challenges, it's a new month with a new theme and a great sponsor.

Hi!  I'm back with a new design team project for this weeks' challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenges.  We have two wonderful sponsors this week:  All Dressed Up Stamps and Sparkle N Sprinkle

For my design team project this week, I had the pleasure of using the Flowers for Mum digital stamp from All Dressed Up Stamps.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Cardz 4 Galz - Flora and/or Fauna

Hello everyone, I hope your day a blessing to you.  Today begins a new challenge at Cardz 4 Galz.  The theme this round is Flora and/or Fauna.  I chose Floral to create my design team project.

I used a busy floral background and placed a die cut on top.  Added some ribbon and a dimensional floral element from a Dollar Tree package of stickers.  For the final touch, I scattered sequins for some bling.  

After looking at this A2 card for a bit, I felt the background overtook all the other elements in my design.  I feel I should have used a larger dimensional sticker for the focal image.  

Please join us at Cardz 4 Galz this challenge.  We would love to have you.  Also, please visit the new challenge blog The Paper Funday Challenges; the theme for March is Anything But a Card with a Twist:  Use the color Green.  You have until March 31st to enter your creation for a chance to win a fun photopolymer stamp set!

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
