Batty For U card

Well, hello again! Thanks for stopping by to check out my creation for Always Fun Challenges Challenge #80 – Monochromatic! I always like these types of challenges because it makes me break away from my usual bright colors and use other colors in my “crayon box”!! Here is my card! I hope you like it and join in on the fun at the challenge! Monochromatic doesn’t mean shades of gray and black, you can do any color but just stay in that color zone and have fun!

May All Your Wishes Come True card

Hello, my crafty friends! I’m back with my Design Team card for Shopping Our Stash Challenge #374  – Be inspired by this:

I hemmed and hawed and couldn’t find anything that I wanted to make until I thought of Minnie Pearl! The lady from Hee-Haw TV Show from my childhood! I was playing with my Disney stuff so this is what I came up with! I hope you join us for the challenge!

SOS#374 Minnie Pearl

This was from a Queen & Co. card kit and it was so fun to put together! Everything is done for you so they are super easy to make! No thinking required! I just swapped out the shaker bits for pearls and done!! The card kits are so fun to make when you just want to create with no pressure or thinking. Just follow the easy instructions and you’ll have 4 awesome cards to use!

I’m going to link this up at AAA Cards CAS Game #125 Inspired by a TV Show. I was inspired by Minnie Pearl of the TV show Hee-Haw or you can even say I was inspired by the TV show The Mickey Mouse Club for that Minnie too!

You’ve Got This Flower card

Hi, there, crafty friends! This is my Design Team card for Shopping Our Stash Challenge #373 Smooshing Technique! This is a favorite technique of mine so this was especially fun to do!

For those who may not know, the Smooshing Technique is when you smoosh your ink pads onto your craft mat, spritz with water and touch your paper to the ink or you can smoosh your ink onto a piece of acetate, spritz with water and touch your acetate to your paper. Either way, you get a nice “water color” look background without breaking out your paint brushes! If you haven’t already, you should try it out and link up your own card at the challenge!

Here is mine:

Dear Friend card

Hello, my dear friends! Here is my Design Team card for Always Fun Challenges #77 Anything Goes! I bought an Anna Griffin card kit and thought the cards might be fun to make! I did have fun but realized that I don’t like to be told what to do! These cards are great for new cardmakers but I feel like I know my way around a card so I decided to do these cards MY way! I added colored pearls, butterflies and pearl pins after I deconstructed the flat pieces that came with the set! Of course, I like my card better and I hope you do too! Please join us for the challenge! This one is easy because you can do anything YOU want! See ya!
