Try it, you might like it!

Welcome to my "try it, you might like it" blog post. This week at Lala Land, the challenge is to make a shaker card. I've never done this because it looked really hard. I've really wanted to, but again, I thought it would be too hard. Well, thanks to this wonderful SCS tutorial they linked to in the challenge, I was able to make this card so easily! I used mega deckled rectangle nestabilities to make the shaker package from Bo Bunny's back to backs Mellow Yellow Dot cs and used some pink glitter on the inside. The dp is from echo park paper co's Sweet Summertime collection. It's called pinwheels. The birthday sentiment is by Kolette Hall and of course the star of the show is Birthday Lala (I cut her hair again!). I used stickles in various places to add some sparkle. Oh, I also paper pieced the present she's holding! I hope you enjoy and try something new today, you might like it!


OH! I almost forgot to remind you! The Lala Land Birthday Beach Bash starts tomorrow! I'm sure it's going to be a blast!!!

Lala Land Challenge

This week's Lala Land challenge was to make a black & white card using just 1 other color. I chose to use hot pink, though some of the pink doesn't quite look hot! lol I've used Mermaid Lala, Bo Bunny black & white polka dot cs, a white prisma flower with hot pink polka dots (which I cut in half), hot pink ribbon, stickles & dew drops (I was going for some sort of bubble look...not sure if it worked out that way or not, though!)

Join the fun at Lala Land and you could win a $10 credit to the store! Awesome!

D2D & Double Delights

Hi! Here's my card for the D2D & Double Delights challenges this week. I've never made a card with a chicken on it, but I really like how this turned out. It's simple and could be used for a variety of occasions! You can see in the picture that I cut out a second chicken and "popped" him up (which is this week's challenge at Double Delights). The dp I used is by Karen Foster, the image, of course, is from Designed 2 Delight, flowers by Prima & rhinestones by Kaiserkraft. I also used yellow stickles in the scallops of the circle I cut with nestabilities. The brad is from some that I've had forever and I don't know where I got them.

So, don't forget to join in the fun at D2D and Double Delights! You'll be so glad you joined them!

Card for Challenges...

Good afternoon! Today I have a card I made using Designed 2Delight's free image of the week! Pop on over to the D2D blog to see how you can get free digi's, too! The flowers are a dark magenta, but it doesn't show up well in this picture. They are actually a beaturiful color, IRL! Thanks for stopping in to take a peek! Oh! I just purchased a couple of digi's from Mo's and I can't wait to use them! I've got a busy week planned, but maybe I'll get a chance to make a card later this week! Have a blessed week!

Double Delight & Designed 2 Delight

Today I have my first entry for the Designed 2 Delight challenges as well as my entry to the very first Double Delight challenge!

Designed 2 Delight gives away an image at the first of the month and if you use it to enter their challenge, Faith will send you the image for the 2nd week of the month for free, then if you use that to enter their 2nd week challenge, she'll send you the image for the 3rd week and so on. See how that works?

Double Delight challenge is to use the image of the week from D2D along with another type challenge. This week it was to make a tent card or a tent topper card. I've never made a tent card, so that is the one I chose to make. I also had to cut down the image, so I cut off the outer scallops and used just the inside circle with "wish".

What do you think?

Happy Independence Day

Good evening! I already have another card to share with you today!!! It was super easy and so cute! I used dp by Reminisce & American Crafts. You probably can't tell by this horrible picture, but the striped dp and blue dp are both shiney. I used this adorable little summertime Tilda, stickles and rhinestones. I picked up some "In Stitch'z" by Bazzill to use to create my flourishes. I think I need to work on those flourishes, but I think it will come in time. :)

I'm entering this card in the follow challenges:
