Sugar Creek Hollow Saturday

26 Feb
Today’s Challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow is to make the inside of your card just as pretty as the outside. Here is the outside of my card.  I used the this beautiful Ladies’ frock digi.

Here is the inside of my card.  I kept it pretty simple…but carried over the same elements from the front.

Make sure to check out the Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge this week and play along with our challenge.

PRC #39 – Anything goes

24 Feb

Good Morning!  Today is Challenge day over at the Paper Romance Challenge blog.  Our Challenge this week is “Anything” goes.  So you can create whatever your heart is content on creating.  How sweet is that!!!

I decided to use this adorable High Hopes image (Summer Sweetness) and sentiment (Thanks a Melon).  It just snowed 12 plus inches at the beginning of the week.  Winter is still in full force in Wisconsin.  So I had to create a summer card…I totally skipped spring….LOL!

I colored her with Copic markers and used some Modern Homemaker DP from October Afternoon.  The  ribbon is from my Etsy shop called Spiced Marmalade.   I just love it.  I actually hand died a piece of vintage seam binding and it gave me a great variegated look.

The over all design is pretty simple, because I wanted to show case this adorable High Hope image.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to visit the PR Challenge blog and enter to your card to win a $5.00 gift certificate to the store.   Amy has tons of fabulous items!

Many Blessings,

Mary

Here is the next video that I promised….it’s a few days late. I hope you enjoy.  I mentioned in the video to check out Britta’s youtube and blog for the Distress videos.   Here is the link to here Youtube channel, Waterfilterlove’s.  Awesome videos…. Her blog is full of inspiration too, Britta Swiderski. I think in the video I say “Art is my Sunshine” and I think that’s her old blog name….I totally linked her current blog though.

Thanks Britta for the distress ink inspiration.  =)
