This week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge we have an interesting challenge for you. You are to use White and only one other color to make your festive holiday card. We have some wonderful sponsors, I am using an image called CandyCane Elf from Sami Stamps, who is one of our sponsors, and as you can tell my one other color is red. I have used copics to color her.  I have used grosgrain ribbon and paper from Candlelight Christmas and the sentiment from Petit Pairs all from Stampin Up. I have also used some glitter on her hat, and used Glossy Accents on the candy cane, to give it dimension. Thanks for looking.

Spring is in the Air

This week at Come and Get It Challenges we have a Spring challenge for you, We have a few sponsors there, and I am using an image called Purdy Butterfly Fairy from OddBall Art Co.
I have colored her using copics, and then glittered her wings afterwards. I fussy cut her out and stamped a scene behind her using the Stampin Up stamp set called Watercolor Trio. I have used Daffodil Delight, Strawberry Slush, ink, and stampin write markers in Tempting Turqoise, The bird is a wooden embellishment and I also colored him with markers. The sentiment was stamped and punched using large oval then backed onto Daffodil Delight punched with scalloped oval.
Thanks for looking.
Have a great week.

Flowers for Spring

Hi Everyone, well we are almost at the end of April, and wow, what crazy weather we have had. It is supposed to be spring, but we had snow here yesterday. Mother nature can turn it off at anytime, I want to see sunshine and flowers, such as the beautiful forget-me-nots, which brings me to my project today at the Lacy Sunshine Blog.  The beautiful image drawn by Heather Valentin called
Kenli Forget-me-not Flower Pot Pretty which can be found in the shoppe here


The background paper is the beautiful twilight moonflower paper that was also designed by Heather. and can be found here
I have used Lace, and Lace border punch on the piece behind her and a spellbinders die called Lacy Circles for the border around her. The sentiment comes from the Easter Blossoms Stamp set from Stampin up and is punched with an oval and  mounted on a scalloped oval punched from the twilight paper as well. The colors I have used on the image are on the recipe card that follows

Springtime for Lacy Sunshine

Hi Everyone, for our Spring theme for this month over at the Lacy Sunshine Blog, I have used made a card with a detachable bookmark using two images from Lacy Sunshine. 

For the main card I have used Lizabeth Butterfly Kisses which can be found here
I printed her larger than I usually do, as I wanted to make the card very simple, to show off the image, as it is too sweet. 
here she is 



Here is the recipe I used to create her

For the book mark I used my Silhouette to make it detachable from the card itself.
I then layered it with card stock, and then the image, The top is made with a punch from Stampin Up, I punched a large hole and added an eyelet from my stash then added the Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon. The butterfly is a Joy Craft Die
The image is another sweet Lizabeth called Lizabeth's Spring Music, and she can be found here

Here she is


Here is the recipe to make her


 and this final picture is of the full project. the bookmark is attached to the card and folds inside the card, so it still can be mailed and so it makes a wonderful gift for someone's birthday. 

Thanks for looking

And Baby makes 3 or more

Hi Everyone: Ok the original idea of this challenge was to make baby cards, or cards for a baby.
Well what happens when there is more than one and maybe not the same sex. So I created this card for the challenge to show it is possible. I have used our Sponsors image from Melonheadz in the black and white version and colored with copics. I have used some Coastal Cabana ruffled ribbon for the frame of the image. and the twins came from the pack as well, I fussy cut it out and popped it up. The paper is from a DCVW stack of dots and stripes, it is glitter too, so really sweet, along with the feet which have glitter too, and since I decided on twins being a boy and girl added on foot from each.
Anyway thanks for looking. Have a great week.

Animal Magic

Hi Everyone, After a long break I am back at Crafting for All Seasons. I was needing the break, but now I am all on board once again. I will be gone for a few weeks, as I have holidays coming up in June. but other than that I am there. This cute image is by our sponsor this week which is A Random Fan, and this cute image is called Daisy and Dexter Bunting. What a sweet image. I have used Copics and Promarkers to color it. The bunting and bows come from the Balloon Framelits by Stampin Up. The paper is the Big Top Birthday Paper, and I've added color dots.
Thanks for looking.
