Sympathy with new Cheery Lynn

I decided to play with my new Cheery Lynn Fiona's mirror frame.  I stamped the La Blance image and colored it with copics and cut it out to pop up on the frame.  I added some ribbon, roses small and medium and flourish leaf strip from Cheery Lynn with their small exotic butterfly.  To finish this I cut up a strip of pretty gems. 

Anything goes for Our Daily Bread Design

The challenge at ODBD is anything goes. I decided to make a very clean and simple card.  I used the pretty Daffodil corner stamp and colored it with copics.  The pretty saying is from the seeds set.  I cut some corners with a Martha Stewart punch and added some pearls.  I used a torn paper towel and tumbled glass distressed ink for the clouds.

Summer challenge Our Daily Bread Design

I made this cute 8x8 page for the challenge at
 Our Daily Bread Designs summer challenge.  I used the saying from Scripture Collection 7 with a spellbinders die cut, and added lots of goodies for this page.  The paper is from the Garden party by DCWV and I added the cute pink circles, not sure who makes that die cut, it's white metal?  The rest of the die cuts are from Cheery Lynn.
 Fanciful flourish, mini fanciful flourish, which is new,  olive leaves, roses large and medium, cuties 1 and 2 with exotic butterflies small and medium.   
This darling page is also for the challenge at
The Shabby Tea Room soft and sweet!!

The challenge this time on Flourishes during the sneak peeks is to "pop it"  I used their beautiful pear stamp and stamped and colored an extra set of the pears and popped them up. I also popped up the center of the beautiful Dutch doily frame die from Cheery Lynn. I cut a flourish leaf strip also from Cheery Lynn to use up the side of the frame. The background is dots by cuttlebug.  Be sure to check out the gorgeous new sets from Flourishes and join in the blog hop this week.

A pirates "real" treasure

What a treasure for a pirate to find!! The challenge this month on our Stampscapes II yahoo group is going to be pirates. I was giving them some ideas even if they don't have pirate stamps.  The Mermaid is from Rubber Stamp Ave and the rest of the stamps are Stampscapes.  I colored them with copic markers and the air compressor system.  I'm also using this for the Craft a Scene beach theme.
