Happy Birthday Chickie!

Hello there, I'm back with another quick and easy project up at Timeless Twine!   I'm sharing a super cute birthday card perfect for your BFF!  

I've used some scraps and bits and pieces of papers for this one.....the image and "hey chickie" are from Paper Smooches as is the paper die. I used my Tombow Art Markers to color in the little birdie! From Bella Creationz and Timeless Twine I used the Firecracker Twine, clearly beautiful sequins and Happy Days Stamps to complete!  I absolutely love how this turned out!

This is my last post as a Bella Creationz and Timeless Twine DT member!  I'm sad to be leaving, but SOOO glad to have been here for the time I was!!

What's your style?

This week at Clear It Out Challenge, it's about YOUR style and favorite craft product!  This was easy for me!  My style is CAS (clean and simple)!!  The less bulky the better!  My favorite craft product is just about anything!  I love to use up scraps and older stuff before the newer stuff gets opened!  Another favorite craft product (if you want to call it that) are sketches!  I can start with a sketch and by the finished product it barely resembles the sketch!  This one pretty much matches the sketch, but not all do!

Our awesome sponsor this week (actually 2 weeks) is Lacy Sunshine!  This little guy is called Nibbles the Mouse!

I used up a piece of digital paper left over from another project, some ribbon I've had forever and some brads.  Colored Nibbles with my Tombow Art Markers.  The sentiment is from Tim Holtz.

The sketch I used is from MyFavoriteThings, they have a new sketch each week.

Don't forget to check out Lacy Sunshine and get an entry in!  You could win some free images!

The Stars and Stripes!

It's almost that time of year where we honor our country and wear it's colors!  I am up at Timeless Twine Blogspot with a scrapbook layout!

With the kids out of school and the temperatures high, that means it's close to the 4th of July!  We usually are either attending a friends BBQ/Pool celebration or spending time together!

I used Firecracker Timeless TwineStar Sequins and clearly beautiful sequins from Bella Creationz and Timeless Twine!  The background is a piece of plain kraft cardstock.  The paper in the star, the tag, banner flags and strip through the middle were all from a paper pack from WRMK Yankee Doodles.

The current challenge at Southern Girls Challenge is tic-tac-toe!!  So much fun!!

Sadly I will announce that this is my last post on the DT for Southern Girls!  It has been a great run and thanks for everyone's support!!  With that's my project!

Below is the tic-tac-toe board to use for your project!  I went straight through the middle......twine, gold and mist.  I colored my image with Tombow Art Markers, used a doily to mask the background then sprayed with Glimmer Mist in Sand.  Added a gold button from my stash and some natural white twine and a few clear sequins from Bella Creationz.










My image comes from one of our sponsors, The East Wind.

Thanks for visiting and be sure to leave me some love!  It was a pleasure being part of this amazing DT and I will miss it!  Until next time! :)

The Color Blue Challenge!

This week at Clear It Out Challenge it's a color challenge.  Use anything and everything blue this week!

Our sponsor this week is Doctor Digi.  I colored in my image with Tombow Art Markers.  The background is Bo Bunny Double Dot in Slate.  The blue dotted paper is from scraps and the ribbon is also from my stash.  The silver star brads have been in my possession for just about forever!

For the Graduate!

This week at Clear It Out Challenge, it's an anything goes challenge!  Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps!  They really have some cute images, including this sweet graduate!

I used my Tombow Art Markers to color her in.  Some scrap patterned paper and black cardstock.  The twine is from Bella Creationz and Timeless Twine in black and white, solid black and lemonade yellow and white.  Don't forget the graduates in your life!  And don't forget to visit Bubagoo Stamps!!

Personally I have an elementary school graduate as of Friday!  It's off to middle school for my oldest and my baby girl is moving on to the 3rd grade!  Where does the time go!
