Hearts A Glow

Nice to see you here. The challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs this week is "Hearts A Glow". I started by placing the beautiful Sweetheart Frame and then adding a piece of decorative paper behind the center of it. I layered another heart on top with is one of the dies in the Two of Hearts set. The sentiment Cherish was layered on top. The Horizon Fishtail Banner is along the bottom with some of the small hearts from the sweetheart frame I had just used. I took the Lock and Keys set and cut them in black , then added glossy accents to them. The flowers in the corner are so quick and easy to make. They are the  Cutie Fringe II, Cuties 4 and Cuties 3. With a few Olive Branches added it was complete. I would really like to see your creations so please come join the challenge @ for some fun and your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree. See you again next week. Happy crafting.

A warm hello to you today. Cheery Lynn Designs challenge this week is "Doilies". Doilies always make such elegant cards. CLD doilies are the most beautiful and detailed doilies. The background was embossed with the Black Eyed Susans embossing plate. I started with The Emperors Swan doily popping the middle up. I then spliced and tucked the Manon's Wedding Garland doily in behind that. I also used pieces of it on the corners. The flowers are from the middle of the Manon's  Wedding doily. The Mini Fanciful Flourish and Fanciful Flourish Left were placed behind the flowers. The sentiment Love was place on the Pair of Tickets. Please come join the challenge @ for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree. See you next week with a new challenge.

Friendship is the Wine of Life

Today I am sharing with you another Cheery Lynn Designs challenge card. The theme this week is "Anything Goes". I started with a paper that has leaves and grapes on it.  I layered up the new Happy Halloween Twiggy Wreath and the new Wine and Grapes together. I tucked the Birdhouse w Lattice in behind that and added the Add a Flourish and Branch for filler as well as adding the Sweet Christine flowers. I printed my sentiment on the computer and then cut it out with the new Pair of Tickets. The add a flourish is so delicate that it worked well to add a little around the tickets too.  Please come and join the challenge @ for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree.
