Mandelas are here again

Daisy Doodles newest challenge is now open.
It's called New Moon and it's anything goes.
Get your card/project done and make sure it has a digi image and get it posted on the challenge blog.
I just printed three of the mandelas, one larger than the other two.
Sprayed them with some mist..obviously, one green and the other purple.
Used the two small ones to make a rosette
Had to get the Kraft Journal in on this challenge, it wasn't hard since kraft paper is just one of
my favorites.
Added some purple glitter glue to the flowers along the edge, alternating total coverage with just a minimal amount.
The cotton crochet I found at a Hospice thrift store in Mount Dora.
Thanks for coming by!

Catered crop - recipe- layered digi images and rubber stamped
Opus-gluei - Roses or rosettes

Every Flower

Delightful Inspiration inspired me this week to do some resisting.
A 'sorta' emboss resist.
I used Crystal effects on the flowers and leaves, let it dry, and then 
brayered some rubber bands over the colored 'embossed' image
using some glitter mist and angel mist.
I only own two bottles and used them both!!
Thank you, Faith, for a great image to play with and use some fabulous techniques.
I got to use my brand new Tim Holtz die for the folded flowers.
Delightful Inspiration also has a Saturday challenge and this week is anything goes
so will submit this one to that challenge.
Thanks for coming by!

P.S. Made this card this morning before an appointment that I had at 1PM.
Gave it to Annie ( the appt person) for her to give to someone else.
she was flabbergasted and said that she had someone very important to send it to.
Can't go into the details, but she was very moved and it was more than a coincidence
that we had an appt today.

Free Week at Daisy Doodles

Tableau Tuesday is up right now at Daisy Doodles.
Our September Designer of the month is Stephanie from Crafty Teacher.
You can see her card and Sammibug's over at the challenge blog.
My mojo  has left the building or maybe it's just some procrastination on my part.
 Getting the blogs posted and the card made was not on my 
list of things that needed top priority last week or this past weekend...sooooo
I had to think of something quick and easy.
I have several images in my folder so I flipped through it and found the 
daisy, ribbon, butterfly and printed dp from Daisy doodles collections.
The pre-colored images are from some card kits that you can find in Daisy's store.
Just look under categories near the bottom on the left and you will see
Card Kits. the bg paper is from card kit 3 and the images are from Card Kit 0ne.
The Kraft Journal's challenge this week is "Movies, Songs, or Books".
I added a three layer kraft paper die with 'Hugs' on it.
The song by Elton John, "Someone Saved My Life Tonight" has butterflies in the lyrics.
Better get crackin...time's a passin' and the deadline is approaching quickly.
Thanks for coming by!

Faith at Delightful Inspiration created the cutest stitched pumpkins, one with a mouse and one without.
I colored the non-mouse one.
check out the D2Dblog to see the entire set that comes with a border image, also.
I made sure to add some kraft card stock for the card's base to qualify for the 
Kraft Journal 'Anything Goes' challenge.
made my own patterned paper with Distressed Inks and some leaf stamps.
Got out an old stapler to staple the frame to the under layers and staple the ribbons under the button.
Thanks for coming by!

The palm tree is also a DD creation that you can find in the store.
It just so happens that The Kraft Journal is having a challenge...Anything Goes.

Mouse cupcakes

Hit three challenge blogs for this card with the wee mouse and her sweet treat.
She is the free image for the beginning of August, so if you 
don't have her, quick head on over to Delightful Inspiration.
while you are there check out the Saturday challenge...BLING!
Then for the Kraft Journal's "Carnival, Parades, Parties" challenge I added a piece of embossed 
kraft paper that I 'blinged' up with some Stickles.
The card base is a piece of Core-dinations...actually all the paper except the kraft is from the same piece of Core-dination paper. I even used it to paper piece the cupcake liner, then distressed it between the lines
with an old emery board.
OO,OOO her sweet wee face is...kraft paper, too!!!!
Used my Prismacolor pencils to color her ears and give her a bit of blush on her cheeks.
I love to see when crafters mix up the border punches, so I tried it for myself.
The sentiment came with the D2D set which also included a party guy mouse and another sentiment.
The 'core' paper is fab for the embossing folders, just a wee bit 'bleeds' out and if you want more of the 
'color' from behind just use an emery board or your distressing tool of choice.
Thanks for coming by!!!!

If it's layers you want....

..........it's layers you will find.
We made a card like this in club  a couple of months ago.
thought it would suffice for a challenge demanding of layers.
This mouse is usually caught holding a big present with a tag, but I cut that out to put a picture 
of Lily in it's place. I LUV this little fella with the big pink ears.
He's a creation of Helen's at Ellephantastic's.
Our friend Cheli came over one day and took oodles of pictures of Lily 
and this is just one more cute one of her.
Soon as the camera comes out Lil's already in a pose.
Here's a pic of the card 'open'.....
I do believe that Stampin Up calls this style a telescoping card.
In this photo you can see the wee mouse in all of his glory...big present
and ALL. Just click on photo to enlarge.
Once I glued the image down, I ran both through the embossing folder
for that inlaid look.
Lily has not seen this card, YET!!
thinking she just might like her photo on a card!!!
Be sure to stop at Ellephantastics challenge and see all the great layers of
creations the DT has put together. Then join in the fun and
 enter to win a fabulous image of Helen's!!!
Thanks for coming by!

School Time Challenge at Daisy Doodles

 The Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge blog's theme is School Time.
You can use a school image or the colors of your school.
An apple for the teacher and 'A' is for apples is what was going on in my mind.
the children go back to school in just three weeks.
Oh, how I vacillated over which school time image to use from the Daisy Doodles choices. So I just thought about 'A' is for apples and had to choose from only two apple images...the basket or the apple all by itself.
The 'Apple basket' and 'School Time', which has the single apple, can both be found in the store at Daisy Doodles. Just type into the search window whatever you are looking for and presto that image will appear.
Paper pieced the basket and apples in layers as you can see. got out the very old Sizzlits Alphabet, the spiral punch and the very new Spellbinders pendant.
used the computer for the words, and a sheet of paper from a junior legal pad.
The D2D Saturday Designer's challenge is to use any image, but include at least 3 buttons.
Both designer papers from Stampin Up were sitting on my cutting table as scraps from some previous cards.
Thanks for coming by!
