Bee Mine!

It's been waaaaay too long since I last crafted. Felt inspired today.....I think it was the sunshine. This is my version of this week's Jitterbuggin' challenge. Follow the sketch.....use stripes.....and something yellow! I used the little bee from Paisley....cut at 2 3/4" Wings are metallic blue and I added details with black/white pens and some dimensional paint. Scalloped circles (button from Paisley at 2 3/4" and 2 1/4") are embossed with polka dots......some doodling and pop dots. Background squares and the card are trimmed with my pinking edged shears......added plaid frame of purple ribbon. And just because it still didn't look quite right....and the sheet of rhinestone dots was in front of me.....I framed it out with them!

Wedding Wishes

My eldest nephew got married this past week-end, and here's the card I made for him and his lovely bride. I used Martha Stewart Punch Around the page Loopy Loo.....a Bildmarna stamp colored with Prisma/Gamsol....and MS heart punches, embossed with Swiss Dots. The flower embossing is Sizzix. I followed this week's Jitterbuggin' sketch.

Winter Warmies - my Toasted Marshmallow Snowman

The challenge at Fantabulous Cricut this week is Winter Warmies......and what could be warmer than a little toasted marshmallow snowman! The snowman is a freebie from Little Scraps of Heaven this week.....I added some Doodlecharms arms and a hat from Paper Doll Dress Up. Paper is from an old DCWV paper stack....added a little rick rack....and a pink stamp that shows up better in person. Embellies are MS snowflakes punch cut out of metallic paper. Sketch is Jitterbuggin' this week.

To enter at Fantabulous Cricut, include a Cricut cut of some winter apparel on your project. For Jitterbuggin', you can use this sketch, add something blue, and include something "snowy." This card also fits with My Sheri Crafts "Winter" theme this week.
