Digital Tuesday Challenge-Distress It

Hello All and Happy Tuesday!!

Yesterday was a relaxing Monday and it. was. fantastic. :) Pretty sure besides running to Walmart for diapers (no way out of that trip) and working on DT projects I didn't accomplish much. 

*Insert a big relaxed sigh here.*

It's time once again for another challenge at Digital Tuesday Challenge This week's theme is "distress it." I might have went a little overboard with the ink pad, but distressed it is! The image is by Saturated Canary. I'll list my copics below. The flowers are a wide assortment and the brooch from Micheals. I added the sentiment printing it off using Trajan Pro font. The tulip die is from the Storybook Cricut cartridge. Also, added some cheesecloth.

Shewee! What a week! Here's hoping this week slows down just a bit. 

It's another week at Make It Monday. This week we're being sponsored by Meljen's Designs. I have chosen to use Pappa Bear. Thought it would be a perfect image for a Father's Day card. I printed it off on kraft cardstock and then just highlighted some of the areas with copics. The paper is from Basic Grey.

Mother's Day & Winner

I love it when creativity can be swapped!! Remember when I posted about this etsy shop? Well, we're trading talents. :) She needs some Mother's Day cards and I "need" a new purse. I'm convinced I'm receiving the better end of the deal, but it was her idea. I couldn't refuse! 

BTW...she has some new styles in, so you should definitely go check them out! It will be a hard decision.

I was inspired by this card.

I had lots of fun rummaging through my stash to find all sorts of goodies. 

Winner of etsy gift card: LORi

Springtime @ DTC

Happy Tuesday! We're celebrating spring today at Digital Tuesday Challenge. Our sponsor is The Paper Nest Dolls. I chose to work with Sunflower Girl. She seemed perfect to help me decorate this "Sunshine Box" I made for a lady at our church who just found out she has breast cancer. The shoebox is from Yellow Box flip flops. Got my first pair this year!
Included in the box:
Stax Chips-"When life "stax" up against you."
Hand Soap-"Wash your worries away."
Lemonheads-"When life deals you lemons, have lemonheads."
Lotion-"Smooth your troubles away."
Air Freshener-"For when life stinks!"
Kleenex-"For obvious reasons."

She got a big kick out of this! Why not spread some "sunshine" to someone?post signature

Happy Mother's Day

I got out another one of my old Magnolia images today. I was at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago and saw the sunflowers and knew I would pair them with this stamp. Actually kinda surprised that I remembered I had it... :)
I also got out some old paper from K & Company and went with a vintage flair for this card. I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday. The pearls, wooden pieces, and bling are from Micheals. The lace, sunflowers, and cheese cloth are from Hobby Lobby.

Under the Weather?

Got out one of my older Magnolia images to play with tonight. It's been awhile since I've inked her up and she caught my eye, so out she came. Isn't she a cutie? (BTW...do you get out your old images or do they collect dust)?
I followed the sketch from Magnolia Down Under. The bling, wood pieces, pearls, and lace came from Micheals. The flowers are from all over. 

This card is for sale. Thank you for considering!
