Here I am back with my creation for the "Roses" challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs. Cheery Lynn Designs really does have some awesome flower dies and the rose dies are no exception.  Just look at the beautiful roses made with white paper and a little distress ink. My base was embossed with the Clocks Embossing Plate and some ink applied to make the clocks pop more. I layered the Large Sunflower Doily and the Sophie's Heart Mini. The beautiful Birdhouse with Lattice was place along the side. The Tea Rose Small and Tea Rose Medium  were used to make the beautiful roses. These detailed leaves come on the die strip with the roses.  The humming birds and dragonflies were from the Tiny Things with Wings set. Last I added the sentiment Mother. Now it is your turn. Come on over to and show us your creations for a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree.

Gone Fishin

Hello to everyone. This weeks challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs is "Make It Manly".  I had some photos of bears fishing so I wanted to work around one of them photos. I used the Celtic Chain Rectangle on a black background. I then place the photo and added the Old Barn Board with the gone fishin sentiment and hook on it. It is a three piece die set which is great for man cards. The Ships Compass was place in the top corner. I think these dies have made a great mans card. I invite you to join this challenge @ for a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree.

Ankara Designs

I am back this week with the "Dry Embossing" challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs. I cut a cream color paper and cut the Fancy Corner Cuts #1 on two corners. I then dry embossed it with the Black Eyed Susans. I placed chocolate paper behind the embossed paper. I place a chocolate strip up the side and layered the Ankara Lace Border along it. I cut the Ankara Lace Doily and place the angel wing in chocolate behind it. The sentiment Hello was placed in the center of the doily. Below the doily I placed the Mini Fanciful Flourish with some flowers from the Tiny Flower Kit. I hope you will join this weeks challenge  for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree @ Check out the other design team members creations as well @ There is lots of inspiring designs to enjoy. Until next week happy crafting and Happy Mothers Day.

The Emperors Swan

Hello I'm back today with a new Cheery Lynn Designs challenge creation. The theme this week is "Lots of Layers". I started with a dry embossed base using the Diamonds and Starburst embossing plate. My next layer is the new Margarita Border along the left side. I  added another layer using the outside of The Emperor's Swan die and then layered the Swan on top of that layer. The Steampunk Corners where placed on the top and bottom of the right side. The Add a Flourish was tucked a bit behind the swan along with the flowers from the Baby's Breath Flower Kit. A few pearls finished it off. Now I invite you to come join the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge for your chance to win a $20.00 store certificate.  See you next week for the "Dry Embossing" challenge.
