Just Us Girls #638 -- PHOTO Week



Vivacious Vicki is hosting PHOTO week at Just Us Girls.  Vicki would like us to incorporate elements from the photo to the left in our card designs.  I love summer and here in Florida, it is pineapple time.  A small family farm up the road from me just opened their roadside stand.  So I focused on these sweet treats and pulled out my watercolors which I rarely use!  Improving my watercolor skills is one my New Year resolutions.  It is June and I figured I better get to it!

LucieG is our guest designer! Please welcome her and check out her fabulous work!

Please check out the design team.  These ladies work hard to inspire you each week.  Drop by their blogs and leave them a little love.

Enjoy!  I am looking forward to your inspired creations in the galley.

Christmas Card Throwdown June Theme Challenge

This week at Christmas Card Throwdown, the theme is VINTAGE.  My Santa is vintage for sure... it is a piece of red rubber that I have no idea who the designer was!  You know those stamps you save no matter what... just cause you like them.

Enjoy!

CAS Christmas June Challenge

I almost missed it! So glad you are back after your absence and in plenty of time to get lots of cards made.  This week at CAS Christmas, the keyword is WREATH.  I used a very old die to create a very simple wreath.

Enjoy and welcome back!

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #546


This week at Cupcake Inspirations, we are working with the colors Lavender, Purple and Pink.  This was a harder color combination that I thought it would be... though I struggle with all color challenges.  I attempted to color the image above only in purple and pink with a few neutrals thrown in.

Enjoy!

FUSION - Wheel Wreath


This week at FUSION, we are working with inspiration from a photo of wheels and wreaths.  I didn't have a wheel but thought a very circular wreath might be a good option.  In order to give the impression of multiple wheel wreaths, I added partial wreaths to the corners of the card.

Enjoy.

Retro Rubber Challenge 185 - Mod Circles!


It is theme week over at Retro Rubber and I am thrilled to be guest designing for the team!  Our theme is MOD CIRCLES.  I made two circle cards.  I am partial to the Cupid card but I think both are a great way to use up scraps.


Enjoy!  I am looking forward to your circle creations in the gallery.
