Digital Two For Tuesday - Fish On!

I am happy to share a little card with you using the sweetest fishing image from Digital Two For Tuesday. My family is made of fishermen and I struggle to find images that work or inspire. This week Cora asked me to be a guest designer for her and these images couldn't have been more perfect for me and the men in my life! With 3 images in all to share with you, be sure to stop by her blog and snag 'em. I know you'll enjoy using them. She provides great images, with beautiful clarity in all printing sizes. Good stuff!

The Cuttlebug Spot - 2x2 die challenge

I bring a festive card for The Cuttlebug Spot challenge this week... check out those flowers!!! I am sooooo in love with them. This week the challenge is to use any 2x2 die or embossing folder (they do not have to be cuttlebug). I feel like I stretched this one a bit. I used the cuttlebug Halloween Sign die / embossing combo for the Happy Birthday sign... it's bigger than 2x2 but ya know... it works! Also, under those yummy 3-D flowers is a cute 2x2 Sizzix die / embossing combo. You can see the edges stick out a bit. The little floral arrangement was inspired by a post I ran across this weekend at The Simply Handmade Blog. There is a post for a flower wedding bouquet that is absolutely fabulous. I added yellow stickles to the edge of the roses, handcut the leaves - crumpled the paper and inked in 3 shades of green. My cousin's birthday is tomorrow. Weather permitting... we're having a little get together on the lake. She is a blonde haired cute little gardener... this Sarah Kay image was a perfect fit.
Have a great week!
