HUGS AND KISSES - DT CARD

Hello, Cardies,!  Over at Friendship's Garden, our challenge this week is a sketch!  I am the world's worst at sticking to the absolute true sketch design, but I try to get close.  I think you can see the sketch.  Although it is hard to see, the Focal Panel is actually sitting in a frame.  It's a pretty cool effect in real life!

Supplies:  Neenah Classic Linen Cover - Solar White; Memory Box Dies - Serfina Heart (I ued the negative); Embossing Folder: Couture Creations Pinstripe; Butterfly: Offray - Stylish Accents; Ribbon -Dollar Tree; Sentiment: Inkadinkadoo - Hearts and Love Clearstamp set.  Miscellaneous: Pearls-Want@Scrap; chalk,

Thanks for taking a look!  head over to FG and enter the Sketch Challenge, just remember, no stamping (except your sentiment) is allowed.  Digis may be used but they must be pre-colored.  I love this challenge site.  You really get to use all your wonderful dies, charms, embossing folders and other design elements that usually only compliment a stamped image.  It is a great way to learn how to use paper in more challenging and decorative ways.   IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE COLOR CHALLENGE CLICK HERE!

The Perfect Polka

I created this card for the Sketch Challenge over at the Outlawz.  This paper was so pretty and the polka dots are raised to give it even greater texture.  I just love the Memory Box Dies and it took a while to decide which one to use.  This is actually a buckle but I decided I could hide the slide bar with a row of half pearls and I think it works just fine!

Papers: Neenah Natural White CS; Springhill "Orchid" Vellum Cover; DCWV "Nana's Kids (Purple Polka Dot Paper) 61/2" x 41/4 Premium Stack; Brown Polk Dot Paper (From My Stash); Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots; Die cut:  Memory Box "Ringed Buckle"; Lace: Prima (purchased at The Frantic Stamper); Brad:  Basic Grey Stitched Brads; Ink: Momento Rich Cocoa; Sentiment: studio G

I HOPE I DANCE!

Happy New Year to all my followers and visitors!  I seemed to have lost one follower, which is devastating when you only have twenty-nine, but I am eternally grateful to the remaining twenty-eight. Thanks for your support.

My crafting resolution for 2012 is to "Grow Bold!"  I want to branch out into really bold design elements.  I am pretty sure I will always be in the CAS arena, but I want to use bolder papers, embellishment, and color combinations.  This is so "not me" that it will be quite a challenge but one I undertake "boldly."

I have been blogging for a year now and I hope to make some changes to the site for 2012.  I plan to sponsor a few challenges here, have some blog candy, and a blog hop or two.  I have met some wonderful designers over the past year and I hope to get some of them to drop in from time to time for a GD project.

To start things off,  I wiil be giving gift certificates to visitors who leave comments on the site and those who join as followers. 

Here are some of the prizes:

Gift Certificates:  Crafty Steals, Oozaks, SCACD, Joann's, Michaels

As new members join, there will be a random drawing for a Memory Box Die of your choice.  These drawing will continue until I have reached 100 followers.
