CLP #49

Welcome to the next CLP sketch challenge.  Ok so honestly I did use the sketch but I just noticed that some of it may be hiding under all my embellie's.  LOL!! 

I tried out my Tim Holtz distress markers again with some new paper I got at a crop I went to about a month ago.  It's fabulous but only comes in a cream and very very expensive so I don't know that I'll continue to go that route.  There must be more out there!!  Also, I'd like to have white paper so I'm on the hunt still. 

Here's the gorgeous sketch for this month:

So if you get a chance to join us we'd be thrilled to have you!!  Also, the girl's have outdone themselves again so if you need a little inspiration please pay them a visit

To all you Canadians have a great long weekend and to all the rest have a wonderful weekend as well!!  Hugs!

Father's Day Card

Just a quick post today as I have a few things I must get to, which I'm sure we all do today.  I got a chance to pull out the 'ol Silhouette machine but boy oh boy do I need to use that thing more often!  It's so much fun!!  I used it to make the football card and on the inside it says ".....on having you for a dad!"  Had some itty bitty BC Lions stickers that worked out perfectly too!!

I got this image from Kenny K appropriately called "Football" after seeing it on Kards by Katie.  Thanks!!  What a great idea no matter what team!

 I'm going to enter it into the following challenges:

Crop Stop - It's a Celebration***

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Birthday Wishes

I had to make a birthday card for my MIL's friend and wouldn't you know it?  Another purple card.  Hmmm....interesting.  LOL!!  I didn't color this but I used one of those LOTV's "Mice Are Nice" die cut sheets for a quick card.  Ok, it wasn't THAT quick but I did eliminate the few hours of time spent coloring the image.  Besides, they're super cute! 

I added my own zipper flower and just an assortment of Wild Orchid flowers.  As if you can't tell already they are one of my favorite embellishments!!  Love the new border die from Magnolia and the Spellbinders "Fleur de Lis Squares" die as well.

I think I'll enter this card into Wild Orchid Flowers - "Anything Goes" challenge.

Thanks for looking!  Eulanda

Ryan's 15th

So here I was dreading another boy's card .... UGH!!  And 15 no less so that age seems to be even harder but I think I pulled it off again!  LOL!!  Phew!  Used some papers from Bo Bunny called "Weekend Market" collection, added some textured layers, some odds & ends and a ball and tee cut using my Silhouette.  "PAR-FECT"

I'm entering into 2 challenges:

Kenny K's Krafty Girlz Challenges - Pearls and I have used Liquid pearls here.  Who would have thought to add pearls to a boy's card.  hee hee

I was inspired by this sketch from Papertake Weekly:

Well thanks for stopping by to check this one out.
Have a wonderfully creative week!!

CLP #48

Another lovely sketch at CLP this week!!  You must check it out and since we've picked up a number of new members on the DT there are lots of pieces of inspiration to take a peek at.  

Today on my card I've used this lovely dragon image from the Princes and Princesses Magnolia collection and she's called "Lilyrose".  I can NOT take credit for the lovely coloring.  A friend of mine, Cheri or as some of you know her as Graphicat Designs, was here a few weeks back and colored her up but wasn't going to make a card with her so I snatched it up and VOILA!  Don't we make a good team?  LOL!!

I'm a bit short on time today but just had to quickly join you to enter into CLP's challenge for the coming month.  Enjoy your weekend all!!
