For Me?

For Me 2012

Hello to everyone. We are having our challenge for the Outlawz Twisted Thursdays challenge and our twist for this week is all about TEDDY BEARS. The image I used is from Squigglefly and the image is called Love’s healing hands boy. I can just see this with any one of my boy when they where little wanting to bring home this sweet teddy that needs a little repair. My boys all had some kind of stuffed animal or blanket that they had to have when they where sleeping. Did some faux stitching with a white uni-ball signo medium size and a black pilot precise extra fine pen. The paper is from Die Cuts with a View called the home spun stack  and the crafty stack.

The little decorative trim in blue with the bears and hearts is from Hobby Lobby. Added buttons, cheese cloth and scrappers floss colors orange, yellow, cream and green.

I want to share my Texas Rose house plant with you it is doing so wonderful this year, I’m sure it has to do with all that hot weather we have been having this summer. It has never had so many leaves and flowers on it.

Friendship

Friendship 2012

Hello all my wonderful friends! You know that nice cool weather I was talking about it is gone, today it is 88 degrees right now so it is back again. One thing that is really nice about living in Wisconsin is wait a little while and the weather will change. Here in Wisconsin we can have all 4 seasons in one day. I have experienced it, several time. I would go to work and it would be in the 80’s and I would get out of work and we would have 3 inches of snow and the temp would be  20 degrees. So anyway it is time for our challenge at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and for this week the twist is all about Friendship, I thought I would use my Art impression stamp #UMT4136 and the sentiment is also from Art impression. I think these girls are so much fun.

Friendship right 2012

 

Stamped the stamps with memento tuxedo black on crygoen card stock. The paper used is from my scraps. Sponged around the sentiment with distressed ink color dusty concord. One of Martha Steward border punches sorry I tried to find the name and I could not find the punch on line????

Used the rest of the purple ribbon and had some purple flowers in my stash. This the inside of the card.

Summer Fun

Summer Fun 2012

First I want to say I’m so sorry I have been gone for awhile. I have had computer problems so I have not been able to do much but everything is all fixed now so I’m all good to go now. I sure have missed everyone. I do have a lot of emails to try and get caught up on. So I have missed last weeks challenge at The Outlawz’s Twisted Thursday but I have my card done and I will share it with you after I share this weeks challenge with you. So the twisted for this week is all about BOATS, SAILBOATS AND CANOES. The challenge starts today and ends on Wednesday August 21, 2012.

The stamps I used is from Northwood's stamps and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. Used X-Press it blending card stock. Used Memento Tuxedo black ink to stamp everything. Twine colors are orange, green and lemondrop. I found a couple of stickers for the inside and front, flip flops and the inter tube (ok help me, can’t think of what they are called)!!!

Summer Fun right 2012 

Die cuts with a view is the paper and it is the summer series. Inside is Memory box delicate vine and Spellbinders labels 8.

So last week our challenge at the Outlawz was all about ribbon or lace and a birthday sentiment. This is what I created. The sentiment is a little bit of a joke around here and the images is from Squigglefly called doubled kissed. The card shape is from Spellbinders grand labels 23.

Cup of cake 2012 I sponged around with distressed ink dried marigold. Added a charm. Was some lace I already had and added some pearl in front of the lace.

As you can tell I also add just a little more pearls (ya right!) with the pearl pen color salmon.
