Tag You're It!

Wahoo It's Friday!

Today starts the next challenge over at Guylou's Inimitability!

This week you need to make a tag!
This challenge is brought to us by Roxann!
The tag must be big enough to allow an image on it,
but other than that the sky is the limit!
Here is what I made using Leah and The Crafts Magazine!

I colored her with Copics.
The paper is from the Out of Print by Basic Grey.
I added some jute, held on with metal clips.
The tulle has little rhinestone stars and of course a few flowers!

Can't wait to see what you create!
Check out the other dt members and the challenge blog!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

OMG I had a draft on here as well as on Scrapper's Delights and
completely forgot to post either one!
here is not only a card I finished using one of the Draco images
from the last release but
a bookmark of one of the adorable bees!

I have never used one of the Draco images before!
And I cannot figure out why!
He is so cute! The look in his eyes is filled with so much expression!
I colored Mr Draco with Copics
used paper from a Top Line Creations kit that I have had forever!
Added some metal corners, metal flower and some tulle with rhinestones!

I kept this pretty simple and kept little Miss Queen Bee centerstage!
Where else would a queen bee be????
Don't forget we have a challenge going on over on the challenge site!

I want to send out a great big congrats to
all the wonderful people out there who have kids graduating tonight!
We made it!
Tyler is going to be walking across that stage
(um field, as it is on the football field!)
and getting his diploma!
Seems like just yesterday he was a freshman!

This is Tyler, on the right at prom...
I could not find a decent picture with him and his date...
so I am going with this one with a great friend of his James!
They all went on a party bus and had a blast!

Here is the card I made for him!

Another easel!
I used one of the newest Sassy Studio Design images!
The back has a hawk for their mascot
and the inside has the class motto!

Congrats to the class of 2012!!!

Triple Easel Card

With having yesterday off my whole week is going to be screwy! LOL

Jerry, the sales person that works for us, got married one year ago today!
He asked me if I would make a card for him to give to his wife, Kara.
I wanted to do something a bit special...
so I decided to try a triple easel card.

This is about half way done...I wanted to take a few pictures of the steps I took
but once I started I got on a roll...

The center is a poem that Jerry wrote himself....
I made it into a flip over so we could put a second poem he wrote inside...

The image is the "Truth Angel" from Crafts and Me.
I printed it twice to surround the poem.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid.
I really like how this turned out...not bad for my first try!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Art With No Boundries                                           Anything Goes
Hooked On Crafts                                                  Flowers
Wild Orchid Challenge                                            Anything Goes

A Hunger Games and A Little Extra Blog Hop!

Wahoo It's Saturday
AND release day at Sassy Studio Designs!
You should have gotten here from SSD...
if not you want to start there and make sure you hit each DT members blog!

This is a wonderful release this month...
we got a few from the movie Hunger Games and a few from history!
Yesterday I showcased Katniss Girl on Fire
and today I get to showcase
Classic Marie!

I kept the card pretty simple to make the image stand out!
She is gorgeous enough of an image to do that!
Lindsay really got a lot of detail into her!

The theme to this hop this month is FLOWERS!
What is your favorite flower? the calla lily!
If you look closely at the card there are two in with the pink flower.
Honestly I don't know why I like it...maybe because it has classy look
and is not as used as other flowers.

This is a picture of some...from the bouquet at my wedding.

It was a bit worn as this was taken later on in the night!

Well I hope you enjoyed my take on the Classic Marie...
and now you need to head on over thecreative Christine's blog!
She always has something wonderful to share.
Make sure you leave a comment on each blog, if you
do you have a chance at winning a few prizes.
Grand prize will be 3 images which will be picked from the SSD blog comments
and 2 people will be picked to win an image each from comments on the DT's blogs!
Never know who's will be picked from!
The hop will continue until Wednesday!
Now go on and git over to see Christine!

New Challenge at Scrapper's Delights!

Good Monday morning to all of you!
Hope you had a great weekend!
Mine was good but way toooooo short!

We started a new challenge yesterday at Scrapper's Delights!
The theme this time is May flowers!
So yes, you must have flowers on your project!
Easy peasy!
 Most of you add flowers on most of your projects!

Here is mine:

For the life of me I could not get the picture to show off what
this really looks like!
I used stickles to color the clothes, bows and flower.
In person it really gives it texture and dimension but
in the photo I could not get it to show right!
Anyway I used For U digi 2 and of course
added flowers...some of which I just got from Wild Orchid!
The brad is from My Mind's Eye and the papers and ribbon are from
my latest kit for Taylored Expressions!
Check out the challenge blog and enter!
Lots of prizes and good stuff!

You've Got The Cutest Baby Face

The next round from CDAC has started!
This newest images are adorable...
and all about baby!
I got to use Emilia by Odds and Soxlets!

I don't do a lot with/for people with baby's so here is what I came up with:

The card has "baby" on the banner and the banner piece is
actually a gift card...on the back is a spot to slide a gift card into.
I figured I would try for neutral colors rather
than specific for a girl or boy.
Hope you like it!
