This weeks challenge at TGF is to add 2 or 3 textures to your project...well, I think I accomplished it!

Last week I found this adorable EK Success Picnic Border Punch (at 40% off), soooooooo stinkin' cute and I knew exactly what I was going to use it on...the adorable Cheeky Cherry Pie stamp. For texture I dry embossed the white oval, the cherry leaves, and the red paper. I added the border and put white paper behind it to show the design. I added flowers, ribbon, and cherries (from the HK cart) that had sitting around for over a year! YAY for using up older supplies!

Thanks for stopping by, it's always fun to have company! :D

TGF FFF Color Combo 2-11

This is the color combo we were challenged to work with this week:

This is what I came up with using Cheeky Shooter...she is so stinkin' cute, isn't she? Do you recognize the paper on the lollipop flower? If not, look at my last post...lol! I decided to use some scraps to make the flower and the pattern was perfect for this weeks challenge too.

Lastly, WooHoo for me....I won last weeks challenge and am now the proud owner of Cheeky Howdy! Thanks GFS!

TGF FFF Sew-Easy Challenge

The challenge this week is to add sewing to your project...hand stitching, machine stitching, faux stiching...as long as it looks sewed on.

I pulled out my Bazzill In-Stitches template and piercing mat to add the flourish on the bottom of the card....not an easy feat when piercing and sewing through 6 layers of paper! I colored with Copics and AtYous, pop-dotted the 3 layers of flowers, and added Stickles to my Glossy Accents for the bubbles (love how it turned out).

On a positive note....I was finally able to link my George cartridge to cut the scalloped circle I had made on my Gyspy, now I can adjust the size according to my project, easy peasy!

Thanks for visiting... :D

GFS CHA Relay Challenge


This is a great challenge over at the GFS blog and the winner will get a set of the new February releases. I'm not expecting to win, but definately couldn't pass up the challenge! We were given 10 things to incorporate onto our project: A GFS image, Copics, patterned paper, cardstock, flowers, a punched border, ribbon, buttons, bling, and stitching. Here's what I came up with using the Hula Anya image and a wonderful sheet of hycinthia pp I picked up at HL this morning.

If you want to participate in the challenge you have until noon tomorrow to join, I'd love to see some friends over at one of my fav sites.

Thanks for stopping by, it's always fun having visitors!
