Birds of the Earth and Sky

Hello. Here I am back this week with another step card for the Cheery Lynn Challenge with a theme of "Frame It". I am so hooked on this Step Card die that I used for the base. Can"t say enough about it. I added the Daisy Lace Frame to the center of the step card.  I place three daisies in two sizes from the Daisy Strip and some leaves behind them from the BAF #2. The new Birds of the Earth and Sky die was used to cut the three birds that are hiding in the Mini Fanciful Flourish.  These birds are really priceless if you are a bird lover like myself. Well that is it for this week. Please do stop by the Cheery Lynn Design Challenge and join the challenge for a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree. There's lots of new dies to choose from if you win the challenge.

Friendship's Fragrant Garden

Welcome back. This week the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge theme is Doilies. I used the Oval Doily Stacker One and the cute Two of Hearts doilies. I then got carried away making flowers of every hue just as the verse says. I used several flower dies including the Gardenia Strip, Black Eyed Susan Strip, Judy's Blooms, Embellishment 1, Embellishment 2, Shasta Daisy, and Cutie 1 to come up with such a nice variety of flowers. I wanted the beautiful flowers to really stand out so instead of adding  leaves this time I decided  to add just the Victorian Romance Flourish and pieces of it here and there. The butterfly is from the Sm. Exotic Butterflies #1 w/ angel wing . This was all done on a wooden wall plaque.  Please join us this week in the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge for a chance to win a $20.00 store credit. Everyone can always use more new dies.  You may want to check out all the other inspiration by our other Design Team Members. Have a wonderful week .

Christmas Advent Calender

A warm Hello to everyone. First I really want to thank Cheery Lynn Designs for designing such awesome dies for us to create with. I have played with several of the new ones now and am so impressed. This week the Challenge theme is "Fun with Letters".  I have been wanting to try out the new Medium Matchbox Die so what better to use it for than a Advent Calendar. Cheery Lynn Designs has made the matchbox dies in small, medium and large. A nice variety of sizes. I have used six matchboxes on each side giving me a total of twenty-four . I used the Merry Christmas sentiment on the front for my letters. I have placed the Snowflake 5 on each of the other three sides with a red gem in the center.  I used the Alison's Ribbons along the bottom edge.  I did a flower arrangement on the top using the Poinsettia Strip, Gardenia StripBlack Eyed Susan Strip, Holly Lace Flourish, Holly Leaves , Rose Leaf Strip and the Snowflake 5. I know a lot of advent calendar are usually enjoyed by children but what about us chocolate lovers that are grown up. Thus why I did the flower arrangement for a grown-up chocolate lover. I invite you to join the Cheery Lynn Challenge for a chance to win a $20.00 store certificate.

Laundrys hung.Works done.

Hello Cheery Lynn Fans.  The theme for this weeks challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs is "Anything Goes". So I thought halloween would be fun. So here is my step card using some of new Halloween dies. For the base I used the new Step Card and placed the new Spider Web Mesh Border along the top. Next I layered the Chicken Wire and then the Victorian Picket Fence . The teen witch was colored with copics and is seen standing in front of the fence. The new Witchs Laundry was hung on the chicken wire. This Witches Laundry is just so priceless and really makes me smile. Especially being the cat was hung out to dry too. The Fall Pumpkins were popped up on the bottom right corner. The three small flowers on the top corner are from the  Embellishments #2. For the inside of the card I used the Happy and new Halloween sentiments and the Lace Corner Deco H.  I hope you have been inspired and will join the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge for a chance to win a $20.00 store certificate.
