All Fall Down


I am so ready for fall weather, but our part of the state hasn't figured out that summer should be almost over.  I guess the only way I can "feel" fall is to design in fall colors and that's this week's challenge at Delightful Challenges.

I've used the Flowering Watering Can from Digital Delights by Louby Loo on this horizontal easel card.  



The mats are Spellbinders scalloped squares cut on the Cuttlebug.  The flowers are Prima and the leaves were cut using the Martha Stewart double leaf punch.  The image was colored with Copic markers.

This week's challenge is being sponsored by 

I hope you'll join in our crafty challenge at Delightful Challenges.

Simple Times


This week's challenge for Delightful Challenges is "Simple Times."  I find that the clean and simple style is the one I lean towards most so this challenge is perfect for me.

I'm using the Jubbly Panda file from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.
If you haven't tried coloring the "Jubbly" animals, you're missing out on some coloring fun.  You can also get them pre-colored if you love the files but don't want to add the color yourself.


I love this paper - the leaves have a slight flocking on them.  Add some mats, ribbon, and gems and call it finished!

You Inspire Me


Hi Crafty Friends,
Can you tell how much I love the Besties set from Digi My World.  Here is yet another image from this delightful digital stamp set.


The gorgeous papers are from the Authentique Grace 6x6 pad. The ribbon is from my stash but I think I picked it up at Dollar Tree.  The leaves were die cut, inked, and embossed using Spellbinders Autumn Harvest Shapebilities.  The darling besties were colored with Copics.

Don't Be Square!


Hi Crafty Friends,
It's time for a new release at Digital Delights by Louby Loo and a new challenge at Delightful Challenges.  This week's challenge is "Don't Be Square" - use any shape card EXCEPT a square.
My new release image is Flippity Frankie's Magic Carpet Ride and a sentiment from the new Wicked Sentiment set.


I chose to make a pedestal card using My Mind's Eye Boo to You papers.  I also used the MS Drippy Goo border punch, some gems, and Wink of Stella glitter brush pen.

Here's a look at the entire release:

Layer It!


It's time for another Delightful Challenge.  This week's challenge uses one of my favorite techniques, layering.  I love, love, love selecting papers and layering different mats to enhance my paper choices.  Today I'm using the Pelican Set from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.




I found this paper with the seagulls in my stash so other than the wave border punch, I didn't have to embellish the card.  To go with today's challenge, I layered the mats, the waves, and then popped up the sentiment and pelican.  As always, I used Copic markers for my images.

So Proud of You

Hi Crafty Friends,
Today I'm sharing a cute little back to school treat I made using an image from the Bushel of Memories set from Digi My World.

I colored the image with Copic markers and attached it to a goody filled gusset bag from
Jaded Blossom.  I also used Jaded Blossom's Mini Tag Dies 2Fancy Topper Die, and a sentiment from the JB's Fitness Junkie stamp set.

I hope you'll stop by the Digi My World Design Team blog to see more adorable digi creations.

Happy Birthday

Today I'm sharing some cards I've made for two special birthdays.
The first one is a 13th birthday card for a youngster we've watched grow up.  He loves the outdoors and all things nature.
This adorable tree frog is a file from SVG Cutting Files as is the rounded top card base.  The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's So Many Birthdays set stamped onto a banner from the new Mini Tag Dies 2 set.  The papers are from my paper stash.
The next card is for his sister's 18th birthday.  She loves all things Cowboy/Cowgirl so the DCWV Yee Haw paper stack was perfect along with this cute image from Great Impressions stamp co.
I colored the image with Copics and decided the horseshoe from Jaded Blossom's St. Patrick's Day die set was the perfect embellishment.    I also used JB's gift card die on the inside.  This is such a great die to have on hand.

I love making cards especially for the special people in our lives.
