Butterfly Kisses and Springtime Wishes With Lacy Sunshine



Hello bloggers, crafters and challenge fans! It's time for a new challenge at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog! This time, we have the perfect one for you, for the season:  Our challenge theme, this time, is Butterfly Kisses and Springtime Wishes at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog. We want to see your Spring time creations, to celebrate the beautiful weather we've been having! We are a bi-weekly challenge blog, so you have two weeks to create and link up with us. You could win a guest designer spot or a fabulous prize from Lacy Sunshine Stamps!



Starting with this challenge, Lacy Sunshine introduces something new - Their Crafter's Recipe Cards! have you ever just loved a project and felt like you just had to know what the creator had used on that specific project?! Well, now you can, with the Lacy Sunshine Crafter's Recipe Cards! Each post, the Lacy Sunshine Design Team Members, will add their recipe card, for their posted project. This way, you can see exactly what we used to create each project - Right down to the coloring medium and the colors we used! How cool is that?! Are you excited yet?! I hope so! I'd love to hear your feedback, in the comments, as to how you like these new recipe cards!

Oh, and now, here is my recipe card for today's project:




As you can see from my recipe card, my card uses the image, Saphira Blue Belle, from Lacy Sunshine Stamps, colored with Promarkers. All papers used are from my stash. My card layout uses the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I've used hand dyed skittles to embellish the card. The flower is hand made, made with Stampin Up Punches. I hand cut a pennant, to stick up under the flower.  I think it's a great effect, don't you?!

Baking Up A Friendship



Whoo Hoo! Are you ready?! Welcome to a new challenge, starting today, at Open Minded Crafting - Fun Challenges! This fortnight's theme is a fun one! The theme is food related - Yes, yes, yes, we want to see your food related projects! This challenge is making me hungry, already! How about you? Remember, we are a bi-weekly challenge,so you have two weeks - plenty of time to play along with us! You could be one of our DT top picks or a winner of of the the fabulous prizes from one of these generous sponsors:
















And now, here are my card details. My card uses the image Granny's Cookies, from Robyn's Fetish. I went with fall type colors, because, for some reason, they remind me of baking cookies.  I decided to go with a friendship theme, since I have an awesome friend that I always send cookies to, whenever I bake! For my card layout, I used the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I've used scraps of matching paper, to make a pennant from out of the sentiment., which is hand stamped. and by Stampin Up! I've used adhesive bronze metallic metal diamonds, to embellish.


I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Winter Escape By The Sea



Welcome to a new challenge! Whoo Hoo! Are you  just sick, sick, sick of the frigid cold temps and nasty weather we've had at the end of Winter, here in the states? I know I am! If you're like me, you are thinking of a nice warm place to get away! Well, let us help you with that - We have the perfect challenge for you this fortnight! We want to see your Winter Vacation Getaway Challenge at Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenges. Of course, if you live somewhere other than the states or live somewhere with hot sticky weather, then you may be dreaming of the opposite and wishing for a colder, snowy getaway - And that's okay, too! We want to see your getaway creations - Whether they're warm, cold or just downright hot! Whatever getaway you are wishing for, come show us and play along, this time, at Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenges! Our challenges run every two weeks, Saturday through Friday - So you have plenty of time to play along!

There are always some awesome prizes to be won.  At Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenges, we are lucky enough to have several kind, thoughtful, generous sponsors, each fortnight. This means many chances to win, for playing along! There are also DT picks each challenge, so you also have the chance to have the honor of being spotlighted!

This time, we are offering up prizes from these super sweet sponsors:




















Wow, lots of great prizes to be won, don't you agree! Remember, you have two weeks, starting today, to play along! Get out your crafting supplies, get your mojo going, and start creating, so you can link up with us, for your chance to win, at Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenges!


While you're here, I'd love for you to stick around just a little longer, while I tell you about my card. My card uses the image set, Under The Sea Set, from Digital Delights by Looby Lou. I used the background provided with the set, then fussy cut around the mermaid, octopus and little fishy, and used foam mounting tape to add them to the background.  All images have been colored with Promarkers. There's lots of dimension going on here, to create this 3D underwater scene! I only used one scrap of designer paper on this card - A really tough task for me, trust me, as I do love my patterned papers! I used a piece of fuzzy lime green scalloped trim across the bottom of the card.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
