Freshly Brewed Contest

Thought this was a cool contest and still trying my hand at paper piecing.

Simon Says Challenge - Fruity

This week's challenge is fruity !
I tried paper piecing for the 1 st time :) I like the look and believe I will be experimenting more with this technique. I went for colors that would make the card okay to give a man. I stamped the image on the lt brown first, then on yellow and highlighted the yellow in brown and green for the peel of the banana and stamped again on a lighter cream for the inside of the banana and also highlighted it in brown. I added a little monkey peeking over the top and pop dotted it up to give it dimension.

Ink It Pink It - Ribbon challenge

So I'm entering this card in the Ink It Pink It challenge. This week they want you to use ribbon

I had some 4th of July stuff out left overs on my desk and I hadn't used ribbon on any of them so figured why not use up some of my stash :)

Another quilling card

I am still trying my hand at quilling and I love the possibilities. Here here is a cute , summery card I made tonight. Hope you like it. Another tip /trick I put small amounts of glue into a contact case to use for dipping my toothpick in to apply the glue , it's small and washes out easy.

"Lasting Memories" Contest
This challenge was right up my alley and had me grabbing pet photos from everywhere to scrap :) My daughter Ciera and her pig Ebony won out for me posting for this challenge . Ebony was a handful, but brought a lot of laughter into our home, she will be missed. Her favorite food was asparagus, she came running anytime she her the fridge open or a bag open, she slept in my daughter's bed and LOVED to be scratched with a back scratcher.

So I'm all up for learning new things and I found my quilling stash I had bought ages ago and never tried actually making anything. I made this card and think for my 1st try it didn't do too bad. I plan to make a lot more quilling projects . One great tip I found very useful is to use toothpicks to apply the glue :)

Simon Says Stamp Challenge This week is an ATC or tag using Tim Holtz products. I used  his Adirondack alcohol inks in current and peach bellini on white glossy card stock, I stamped a flower image and decorated them with stickles to add some bling . I added a metal sentiment that says nature's beauty.
I LOVE how this turned out :)
