** Sponsor 1 **
Prize ~ £6.75 voucher

Prize ~ 2 Images

I made a card using an image from All Dressed Up. I absolutely love this image! She is called Pretty Bonnet. Isn't she just wonderful!
I actually used a stamping technique to make the background. This is where I got the idea from. It really is a terrific technique. 
I used Alt & New Vintage Flowers stamp set. I colored everything with my Copics. The clouds were made by using Stampabilities, light blue ink pad.

Scrapbook Stamp Society- Shaker Card

Hello my crafting friends,

Today for Scrapbook Stamp Society, I decided to share a shaker card that I made using Fancy Pants Bloomin Besties img179.
I have never made a shaker card before so this is my first time making one. A good friend of mine sent me a shaker card for Christmas. The plastic part looked like it had been sewn so I asked her what she did, or used to make it. She used a fuse tool. I had never heard of it before so I went to YouTube. Here is a link if you are like me and have no clue on what it is. The link you will find here.
So, I went and bought the fuse tool and decided to give it a try. I have to say, it is really easy to use and holds what ever you put inside extremely well. :)
Thank you Larelyn for the tip on the fuse tool!
Hugs, and happy crafting.
Sandy.

Supplies:
Spellbinders- Scalloped Squares
Impression Obsession- DIE096-D (grass)
Nellie Snellen- Heart Fence

I had just gotten the bunny butt die cut and couldn't wait to use it. When I saw this Besties girl in a pot, I thought it would be perfect. The bunny's behind is just so big that I wanted to have it's rear end stuck in a fence. :)
We would love if you would come and participate in the challenges. There is great Besties images to be won. :)
Hope to see you there!

They have two sponsors:
** Sponsor 1 **
Fred She Said Designs
 Prize ~ $10 Gift Certificate
And
** Sponsor 2 **
Prize ~ $12 Gift Certificate
I was fortunate to be able to pick an image from Fred She Said Designs
The cool thing about this image is that it comes with so many pieces to it.
I can change out the words at any given time to fit the need. :) They left one blank as well, so you can fill it in if need be. I love images like this!
This card is one of those cards where I didn't have to much supplies I used on it. I used two different Paper Studios papers. One called Blue and Brown Plaid, and the other is called Tiny Polka-Lime Tonal. I colored it in with my Copics. The star came from Spellbinders, Stars Five. I just finished the card off by using a white gel pen to go around part of the frame.
That's about it.

My Besties International Challnge- Reminder

This is my reminder card for My Besties International to let you know the challenge is still going on for February.
This is one of My Besties Giggle Box girls. The image is called "Giving Thanks" img222.
Ha, this one was a challenge for me because I normally stay away from coloring black hair. It is one of my down falls I'm afraid. In other words I suck at it, lol. I just thought she was cute and had to try and see what I could come up with for her. You know how that goes!
Anyway, I do hope you participate this challenge! There are always wonderful My Besties images to be won. :)
Hugs, and happy crafting,
Sandy.

Color It Create It Show It Of- "Anything Goes"

This is my reminder card for Color It Create It Show It off that the challenge is still going on for the month of February. The challenge is always, "Anything Goes"!
This here is the delightful "Twigs", scann0094. I think it is always hardest to try and come up with a masculine card verses any other type card. You don't want to use flowers, etc, but you don't want your card to look very plain either. It's always hard to try and come up with a design that is perfect for it.

I do hope you come and participate this challenge!
Hugs, and happy crafting,
Sandy.

Supplies-
Tradition- Stripe-N-Scallop
Fiskars- Hello Fabulous (clear stamp set)
Copics, Scraps, and Thin Black Sharpie

Scrapbook Stamp Society- Valentine

Today over at Scrapbook Stamp Society I shared how to make this Valentine gift card holder using the delightful  My Besties image Scan0066.

I used a 12x12 paper and cut it to measure 5x12. I then scored it at 4, and then at 8. That created the fold. I cut off the tips to make the look that I wanted. That's basically it. How easy is that! :)
Her is the list of supplies I used-
Spellbinders- Lace Hearts
Lawn Fawn- Stitched Scallop Borbers
Stampabilities- Love with Heart (paper)
Memento- Tuxedo Black (ink)
Stampabilities- Red

These are only a few I named, but isn't she just lovely!

Scrapbook Stamp Society- Warm Wishes

Hello my crafting friends!

Today it's all about staying warm!
January usually starts winter here where I live in Texas. So far we have had a very mild winter. Really not much of a winter at all. I am sure things will start to change very soon. I made this card thinking of winter and all the people who are having it very cold right now. A very good friend of mine lives in England and I know it gets really cold there.
I absolutely love this Besties image! It is IMG920. If you haven't seen the colored image of her in the My Besties Shop  you should go and have a look. She is colored up just beautifully. Such rich gorgeous colors.
Have you seen My Besties Design Color and Create on facebook?!?! It is a place where anyone and everyone gets together and shares anything they have made. You should go and check that out as well if you haven't already.  It's always good to come together with other crafting gals and guys! I would love to see you there!!! :)
 Here is the link to Scrapbook Stamp Society.  It is a place where My Besties DT gals and guys share their work, and also sometimes have such great tips.
Hugs, and happy crafting!
