Thank You

A warm welcome to everyone. This week at Cheery Lynn Designs is the "Thank You" Challenge. I started with a barn board paper as my base and added two different sizes of the  Horizon  Square Boutique Stacker Frame. I cut the smaller one from a bird image paper and off set it so it was a diamond shape. I used the Pretty Pretty Bows  die across the bottom to place the Thank and You sentiment on instead of making it into a bow. I placed the  Whistle a Happy Tune  along one side the bird and some of the Add a Flourish  and a butterfly from the Small Exotic Butterflies #1 with Angel Wings along the other side . I used  some flowers from the Tiny Flower Kit  to place here and there adding bling to the center of them. Well that it for this week. I hope you will come join our challenge @

A warm hello to all. This weeks Cheery Lynn Designs challenge is "Anything Goes". I started by embossing the background with the Clocks Embossing Plate. This really gives a nice texture. I then cut both pieces from the Alpine Flourish Doily die set and placed one at the top and one at the bottom. I added a vintage photo to the top doily and added some pearls to the bottom doily. The flower is the beautiful Shasta Daisy with leaves from the Flourish Leaf Strip. The sentiment Cherish was placed at the top. I love the black and with  just a touch of color. This doily set is so elegant. I hope you will find the time to join our challenge at I would love to see your creations.

Sparkle and Shine

Hello Here is my card I created for the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge " Sparkle and Shine".  The photo does not show it but it is a 3D effect to this card with  the Santa and sleigh being the front layer and the Winter Neighbourhood Border set back. The front of the card bows out. I used a pattern paper to give the effect of a dark sky with stars. I then layered the  Winter Neighbourhood Border on to it. I hand cut some snow banks and layered to the back of the Madrid Flourishes Rectangle Boutique Stacker then placed the Santa's Sleigh and Reindeer on the snow banks.  I used the Merry Christmas w Tree Sentiment to add to the three corners. I hope you will join our challenge @
