Darling Daisies

A warm hello to all. This card I want to share with you today was created for the "Lace Challenge" for Cheery Lynn Designs. This card has a two piece front on it where you can hide a little sentiment behind the flap. The flap is cut from the  Kaleidoscope Lace French Flair. I attached the Dancing Doily Lace along the edge. The Darling Daisies were cut and arranged along the bottom with the layers of Grass Border to ground them. With and Sympathy sentiments turned it into a nice sympathy card. The cutest tiny dragonflies from the Tiny Things with Wings set were placed here and there. A touch of glitter on their wings made them look cool. I now invite you to come join us in the challenge @ for a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree. I would love to see your creations.

Gift Box

Glad to see you here. I am sharing with you a cute little gift box that I created for the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge " Die Cut Flowers".  This little box is cut from the  die Matchbox Large. It is so quick and easy to cut and assemble. Like 2 or 3 minutes maybe. There are three different die sets that each cut a different size of box. Just put something little inside and it will brighten up someone's day. Plus they are fun to decorate and good for any occassion. I started decorating the box by added some mesh, ribbons and beads. I then added the Large Rose and stuck the leaves from the Tea Rose Medium in behind. Two of the Add A Flourish were used for filler. I then put Alison's Ribbons around the sides of the box. A beaded corsage pin was stuck in behind. Now how easy was that! I invite you to come join the "Die Cut Flowers" challenge for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree @

Things with Wings

Today I am here to share my "Things with Wings" for the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge. My blue base is the Coved Rectangle Scalloped Stackers. The  Oval Scalloped Stacker was the next layer. The third layer I used the Horizon Oval Boutique Stacker and embossed it with the Diamond and Starburst embossing plate. What beautiful  texture that one has. I added the Fanciful Flourish then layered two of the Small Exotic Butterfies . Happy and Birthday were glittered and placed. A bit of glitter make the butterflies look great too. That's it for this week. Please come join the challenge for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree @

All About Texture

Hello I am back with the new challenge @ Cheery Lynn Designs. It is "All About Texture" this week. It's the perfect challenge to play with my CLD embossing plates. One of my favorites is the Foliage. So I embossed the base with the Foliage embossing plate and then inked round the edges to pop it a bit. I like this effect as it kind of frames the focal point of the flower arrangement. I assembled three flowers from the Black Eyed Susan Strip and then used the leaves and stems from the Orchid die. With the Grass Border, Wheat Heads, and Tiny Fanciful Flourish  it finished it off nicely. If you haven't tried the CLD embossing plates out yet you should give them a try. They really do add nice texture to your projects. Hope you will join me in our challenge for you chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree @ Have a great week.
