Hey All! Just wanted to share some exciting news with you....I'm now a member of the Creative Inspirations Design Team! I couldn't believe it when I saw my name on that list! I'm so excited and can't wait to start sharing some new DT projects with you!
Hope your all having a great day!
The Merrie Merrie was actually on the paper already, I just managed to be able to cut it out just right. I did, however, stamp "Christmas"...don't think I've done an easier sentiment, lol
Here are the new flowers with crackle paint...thanks to a commenter catching my miswording that the flowers were painted b4, giving me the idea to paint them..Thanks!
The whole card was sprayed with glimmer mist.
Well, that's it for me...I'll had some links and add a little more info later, but it's after 3am and I gotta get to bed. Next stop on the hop is Carissa and I'm sure she'll have something fabulous for you. Thanks for stopping by!

Sorry I have been MIA for a while folks...life's been a bit crazy around here lately! We've been getting ready for school, which starts Friday, and had some family come, but I'll be back into the swing of things real soon! Thanks for sticking with me. There's a DT call going on with a new challenge site called Southern Girls and this is my entry for that! I was also hoping to get this into Scrap Girls challenge, but it seems I'm a day late. Anyway, I got this idea in my head and came up with this...hopefully it resembles my idea of a snow globe. Ok, well, there's a few pics today, so I'll get on with it!
Here's a close up of Tilda when the card it closed. I liked the idea of a winter scene behind her and thought that DP was perfect...sorry, I'm not sure where it's from, it's pretty old. The paper snow is DCWV glitter paper and the loose snow is some Diamond Dust and some Holiday snow from Hobby lobby. I have put some polar white flower soft on the bench...so some is always there...and also a few bits on her.
Here's Edwin close-up. Isn't he a doll! This is my first Edwin and I
just adore this image. Edwin is sitting on a velvet ribbon and the red beneath him is a flourish imprinted felt that I found at hobby lobby.
Here's Tilda in full snow globe mode. The bench she's sitting on is from ATS. Doesn't the snow at her feet look fab!
This is what the card looks like when opened. Sorry, I couldn't get it to stand flipped oopen...probably cause there's so much stuff on the globe part. The little flowery things are from the trim I used to put around the globe.
The snowflakes and the sentiment have raised edges which I achieved by using hot glue...this looks really cool in person. I don't think these pics really do the card justice! All that white paper is completely glitterfied...it's so hard to get that glitter to show. I also put glitter on the sentiment and the red part of the snowflakes.

My papers are DCWV and all the sparkle is stickles. The rhinestones are basic gray. The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment is computer generated. Oh, I almost forgot the sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen and the winner gets a 10 voucher to her store. So, stop by and see what the rest of the DT has to offer then get your thinking caps on and do some crafting!
Have a great day!

Good day everyone! Hope you all have had an excellent start to your week. Things have been good here, but a little busy. Anyway, I got this golfer dude as a freebie from Kenny K's a while back and thought he'd be perfect for my BIL's birthday card. I haven't colored too many boys and I know nothing about golf, so this was a little challenging for me. I've had him colored up for a couple of days, but just haven't had the time to finish til now.
I decided to base my card on this sketch at MoJo Monday. I think it follows pretty well, but I'm not all that certain about my sentiment...guess I should look into getting some more.
Here's a close-up of my golfer. I tried out a new color combo for his skin, and I think I've found one I really like, YAY! It seems I am forever changing skin tones and never seem to hit the right one. If you're wondering I used YR00, E000 &0000 and I think his skin is perfectly peachy!
