Early Christmas

Good morning everyone!  We have a new challenge for you over at Dream Valley today.  This fortnight's challenge is to make your own flowers and/or embellishments.  

I have used an image that I had colored a while ago (try 6+ months lol) when I was using some watercolors. You all know that I don't use a lot of flowers or embellishments on my cards, but I thought that this image needed a little something.  

I used a cricut cartridge from Close to My Heart and cut out two flower patterns.  The flowers then had to be rolled and held together with some glue dots.  I found glue dots to be the easiest this time around because the flower was so small and glue dots don't ever let go!

The next step was to use some Cherry Splash from A-muse Studios.  No, I'm not brand specific, I'm an equal opportunity crafter! LOL  I topped the flowers and the image off with a little bit of glitter.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

Crimbo Crackers - Christmas + how long?
DRS Designes - Letter B - Bird
Cute Card Thursday - fly like a bird
Ruby's Rainbow - things with wings

Have a great week!  Happy crafting!

Father's Day/For a Man

Hello!  It's been a long time since I have blogged!  We have a new challenge today at Dream Valley.  In honor of Father's Day the challenge is Father's Day, or something for a man.  

I have to say I did the for a man bit!  This is a thank you scrapbook page that I made for my daughter's softball coach.  I won't show you the signatures, but all of the girls signed the back.  Sorry for the picture, I was trying something new with a tripod and ended up cutting off the top!

I also wanted to say a very Happy Birthday to my daughter!  

I hope you have a great week, and please play along at Dream Valley!
