Flashback Friday at M5D!!

Happy Friday!!  I was about to say that after a busy week, I'm glad for the weekend, but since my husband is a pastor, my weekends are just as busy (if not more) as our weeks!! :)

Today, is Flashback Friday at McMahon Five Designs so we are highlighting some previously released images.  Mine is a fun one!!

My image is "Mighty Hunter" a colored image from Draw Me A Daydream.   My DP is Colorbok "Nature Lover."  The border punch is MS.  I hand cut my circles because that size of my Spellbinders set has mysteriously vanished! :(

Please visit the M5D BLOG to see all the creations today!   Also, every month Sue puts out a FREE breast cancer awareness image, so check out THIS POST to see the most recent with links to the newest image and free digi papers to match!! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!!

Old truck for TMS #242

Today at Tuesday Morning Sketches, we have a fun sketch and a great sponsor!

Masculine cards do not always come easy to me, so when anything inspires me toward that, I go for it!  This sketch immediately struck me as one that would work well with a masculine image.  I've been wanting to use this image, so it was a perfect match! :) 

My image is "The Old Truck" from Fred She Said.  The DP is 7 Gypsies "Venice."  (The checked BG is not as hard on the eyes IRL as it looks here!)  The slanted frame is cut using Spellbinders Large Labels.

Here's Melissa's wonderful sketch for you...  this will be great girly and frilly, too!!

Our sponsor this week is My Creative Classroom!!  Play along for a chance to win a seat to one of their classes!!

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to go check out the creations from the rest of our DT...


We'd love to have you come and play along with us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

I used Daffodil + Sentimental Thoughts from Imagine That! digis by Kris.   My DP frame is Prima "Madeline."

My image and frame were cut with Spellbinders Labels 8.  I printed the daffodils twice and fussy cut just the flower and popped it up for some extra dimension.  These bows have been in my stash since I started scrapping in 2005!!!

One layer card!

OK, so technically this is 2 layers because the card base is a layer, but the entire decorated portion is all one.  That's very usual for me.  I love layers and dimension, but I am very pleased with this and it sure will be great for mailing!!

Everything is Doodle Pantry.  I used Classy Styles Digi Paper Pack, Layered Frames, Magnolia, and Sweet Sympathy Sentiments.

If you love Doodle Pantry images and creating with them, you might want to check out the details on the Doodle Pantry Blog -- there is a Creative Teamie Call going on until March 24!!  Check it out HERE

Word Art Wednesday #124 - anything goes (use Scripture or other uplifting sentiment)
{PIN}spirational Challenge #99 - photo inspiration (my inspiration was the flowers)

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #241

Happy Tuesday to you!  Time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!! :)  Want to see my card?

My DP from DCWV Mariposa matstack.  The image is a fun rubber stamp that I've had forever by Rubber Stampede.  I love it, but it is mounted crooked on the wood so can be a challenge to use!!  I used Fleur de Lis Spellbinders.  This set makes a square cut, but I folded my paper (you can barely tell right in the middle) so that I could have a long, rectangle shape. (I cut it only, did not do the embossing step) The brads are Kelly Davis Designs.

Our sponsor for this week's challenge is The Stamp Doctor!!  They have stamps and accessories and tools including a wonderful selection of dies!!!  (I'm starting to love dies almost as much as embossing folders!!! :) )

We've got a great sketch for you by Melissa... I didn't turn the sketch, I just streeetched it a bit for my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to go check out the creations from the DT...


We'd love to have you come and play along with us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Happy Birthday to Ewe - TMS #240

It is Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge time!!   This week is our Judged Challenge with a Twist!!!

This week twist is "3 B's"!  That can be whatever you want... black, brads, bows, blue, buttons, babies, boys, balloons, buffalo...  buffalo???  Yeah, you should try it!  I don't think I've ever seen a buffalo on a card!  LOL   Anyhow, you get the idea!!  We want to see at least 3 "B" items on your card.

Here is my "B" card...

My "B's" are Birthday card, Bow, and Button.  I guess I also used a Border punch and there is a Balloon.  :)  Lots of "B's"!!   My DP is We R Memory Keepers Journal Cards.  I used an MS border punch, Casa Collection ribbon from J's, and a Paper Studio button tied on with baker's twine.  My image is Happy Birthday to Ewe from Bugaboo... our sponsor this week!    Hey, that's another "B" for me!!  A Bugaboo image!  ;)

Owly birthday wishes!!

This was a fun card to make!  I let the paper do most of the work, and this image is so cute and fun that it just made me happy every time I looked at it! 

My image is Doodle Pantry's Birthday Fall Critters.  The image and sentiment were cut out with Spellbinders Labels Five.  My DP is Basic Grey "Fact."  I put some Glossy Accents to make the owl's eyes standout... all my googly eyes were too big or I would have used some.  The ribbon is the last bit of some AC ribbon, and the enamel dots are Heidi Grace.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!!
