Well this fold was an adventure, first I couldn’t find my cutting mat….it’s probably home but I figured out how to use the score-pal to measure and cut the base. Of course being at the cottage I only bring what tools I need to do the projects I have planned so my star punch was at home, I dug through my DCW stack pads and found some dp with stars on it, the colours didn’t match what I was doing so I cut out 6 large and two small and popped them up on the cute Sunshine Hedge where the flowers would have been.
Don’t forget to check out Lynn’s blog and try he funky fold. Thanks for stopping by today and come back soon.

I was checking out the Crop Stop Blog for the new challenge and was very excited I knew how to make a rosette without a die. I am very fond of black and white and could see how nice the rosette would look in some great b&w dp. The floral background is an embossing folder from Stampin’up, I think it is a very versatile folder great for an occasion . I found the cute flower button in my button jar. I used my black atyou spica glitter pen on the centers of the flowers, the butterflies were punched out of vellum. TFL.
Thanks for stopping by today and you are welcome anytime.

Done with one of my favourite colours……lime green, it looks so great bordered with black. The image was coloured with pencil crayons and oms. Her sign says “Go Braless it pulls the wrinkles out of your face”
I have posted this image before as I have used it for a couple of Birthday cards. The sign says “Put your big girl panties on and deal with it”. It’s a great one for a “good” friend that is having a milestone birthday.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my Dolly Mamas, you are welcome to stop by anytime to see what I’ve been crafting.

I used a stamp set from Stampin’ up called Fabulous Florets, I stamped with versafne black and embossed with clear embossing powder, painted them with my H2os and cut them out. The leaves in the background were cut with a Creatables die from Marianne Designs I purchased from Stamp Art in London Ontario.
Thanks for stopping by to see the challenge I found to do. I hope I inspired you to dust off your Twinkling H20s and create.

I used one of my “funky flowers” from The Stamp Barn, coloured with pencil crayons and oms. The cardstock is a retired colour from Stampin’up, it is one of my favourite colours. I layered it with black and the dsp is from the dollar store, it is so nice as it already has glitter on it. I punched the butterflies out and coloured with tombow markers.
Thanks for stopping by to see what I have been creating and don’t forget to come back again soon.

I was so impressed with Lynn’s card I just had to have a look at Clear it out Tuesday’s blog myself. It was a fun challenge to use anything with wings on a card, wow lots of choices. I used the flower from Echoes of Kindness ser from Stampin’up and the butterfly from God’s Beauty it was a hostess set from Stampin’up a couple of years ago. I stamped the butterfly on acetate and coloured it with sharpies. Since I am crafting in two places I didn’t bring home my stazon ink which would have worked better on the acetate. I also left all three pair of scissors there as well so cutting it out with some kitchen scissors was a feat. I used markers on the image then coloured it with pencil crayons and glittered it up. The embossing folder I used for the bottom layer is Polka dots by Provo craft.
Thanks for stopping by and come back again soon.
