Showing Off Summer



Welcome to our new challenge, at Hobbycutz. This fortnight's theme is your favorite and mine - Anything Goes! Whoo Hoo! You have two weeks to play along and there's great prizes up for grabs! We are so excited to see all your creations, so come play along with us!

I went with a summer themed card in bright, summery colors. My card uses the image, Ashley 3, from The East Wind, colored With Promarkers. I used a pair of flip flop buttons in the bottom right corner. In the top corner, I used a wooden flower diecut from Hobbycutz, then quilled vines to go on each side.  I added a shiny crystalized gemstone pearl to the center of the flower. The sunglasses on the image have been given that "Glass" look, with a clear Glaze pen.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Show Us Your Inner Animal With Chessie Catnip Flower Pot Pretties



Wow! Time sure is flying by, isn't it? Can you believe August is almost here?! Anyway, its time for another challenge and we have some new releases to show you, too?! Our theme, this fortnight, is flowers.  Come over to  Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog to play along and see our new releases! Remember, you have two weeks to play along, as always, so we expect to see lots and lots of fabulous entries, this fortnight! The prizes are the usual - There's a random winner to be chosen, Top 3 spots and a guest designer spot up for grabs! Plenty of chances  to win, from Lacy Sunshine! Come see the awesome talent of the design team, at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog!

I have to admit, this project was quit challenging! We were given a digi "Puzzle," I like to call it. Each part is printed separate and you're able to piece them together, however you want.  I have to say, it was a lot of fun to  figure out how I wanted to put it together.  I hope you like my finished project!

My card uses the image, Chessie Catnip Flower Pot Pretties, from Lacy Sunshine, colored with Promarkers. I used this fun paper, from my stash, with hearts and animal footprints. I thought it would go great with this fun kitty image! I fussy cut each part of the image and put them all together, individually, to create this 3D image. I used striped paper across the center of the card.

It's A Christmas In July ABC





Well hello there! Are you enjoying the Christmas In July festivities this week, at Catch The Bug?! The Design Team sure is having fun! We hope you are, too! Hopefully you've been playing along in our daily challenges, too!

Today, our challenge theme, today, is to use a particular color scheme, for your project. You can see the color scheme today, over in today's challenge post, at Catch The Bug - But, basically, the colors are shades of green, purples and pinks.

Today is normally ABC day at Catch The Bug - so Its my assigned day to do an ABC - Anything But A Card.  I chose to do this fun Christmas Ornament. I used a miniataure train track from Mayberry Street Miniatures, painted it with Silks Acrylic Metallic Green paint and used lavender ribbon to hang it. Then, I attached this fun image, Christmas Kids - Boy 2, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. I thought it was pretty creative! What do you think about it?!
