JCBC - Challenge 33

Our guest designer Vanessa drew up a great sketch this week at JCBC. I received this cute little Chitango stamp and saying in a swap. It fit so perfectly with the sketch this week. I used Colorbok Friendly Forest papers throughout. Thanks for looking, be sure to check out the other DT cards and give the sketch a go yourself.

U R Special... CB Spot Challenge 32

Happy Memorial Day~ This week at The Cuttlebug Spot our theme is to craft using Brown with either Blue or Orange. I found this adorable Owl ribbon in the perfect colors and knew it was a must have. Printed ribbon is a little tricky for me. You can't really tie a bow, twist, etc. I wanted to only see whole Owls also so the turn under not only made it work but added a fun texture to the card.
I used the Spots and Dots folder to emboss the "UR" letters, cut from cricuts Lyrical Letters. All papers and Vellum phrase is Colorbok~ Friendly Forest.

The Cuttlebug Spot ~ Challenge 30

Look Through Our Window is the theme this week at The Cuttlebug Spot.... create any card or project using a frame or window. My little Tilda is framed with branches showing signs of spring, taking shelter from the showers that brings it all to life. I really wanted her to be the focus of the card, yet be alive within it. This time of year I want to be out in the storm, clearing way for the new growth be it rain or shine. So rather then look into the window to see it all happening, to me this card is looking out the window being a part of the work to be done.

I am really inspired with the beautiful work all of The Cuttlebug Spot DT created this week. Surely you will be too so be sure to stop by and take a look around!

Just Christmas and Birthday Cards ~ Sketch 31

Happy Monday~ This week at JCBC I stretched the sketch just a bit to use this great sunflower cut with my Tilda. I adore this little lady and cannot wait for the real flowers to be in bloom! I needed some cheer in my head and craftroom... sunflowers is all I could think of! My sketch this week is a simple one but the ladies have really put it to work so be sure to stop by and see the other DT cards. Fabulous as always!
