Tall Tulip

I always do the Queen for the Day challenge on Splitcoaststampers and I am here to honor this week's Queen by doing a case of one of her cards....found here. The new queen is Dawn aka TreasureOiler.

I was going to use my Top Note Die as Dawn did but it won't go through my Grand Calibur and I broke my Cuttlebug a while back. I sure wish I could find that smaller size again instead of a wide carriage. No one has them anymore. My Grand Calibur has the wide carriage and I don't need another one. I loved my Cuttlebug.

I am using Stamps by Judith for my image. I love the little coffee bean because there are several ways to use it. I wanted to use it as a tulip this time.  I added a Martha Stewart bow from a punch. I would say this card is very CAS.

Paper is Stampin'Up Cherry Cobbler and the ink SU Cherry Cobbler and  Memento Bamboo Leaves. The green paper came from my local scrapbook store with no name.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Flower Garden

What a week! I won't even go into it except to say my house is destroyed and won't be the same for weeks. Well, it isn't really destroyed, but I feel that crew is here. Need I say more?

On to the challenge at CCEE Stampers this week. Charlene Merrick, our hostess gave a color challenge:
Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi, and a neutral of your choice. I only had one of those colors and could have substituted but I just decided I would sponge in some colors that were in the family.

I stamped a Rubber Stampede Fern Frond on my base and then stamped my image from Crafty Individuals that I won a while back. It doesn't have a name on the package, just CI-176. I sponged with these colors:
Memento Bamboo Leaves
Memento Danube Blue
Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler
Stampin'Up! Crushed Curry

The sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy-Poppies and Greetings

All that was left was to add my black embellishments.

Hope you'll join this week at CCEE Stampers. Check out the rest of the  DT's samples and get out your crafting supplies and go to work. Then, link your creation.  That's it! Have fun.

Friends of Speedy TV challenge

Good Morning morning..hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I went out of town and relaxed a bit and visited a good scrapbook store, picking up some goodies.

Monday is the beginning of a new challenge at Friends of Speedy TV located at Home of Speedy TV.  This week the challenge is to create a Memorial Day card. I'm using an image from Mark's Finest Papers called Fabulous Dogs.

I stamped my dog twice, colored him, cut out, and popped on. He is paper pieced with Mark's Finest Papers Old World Gold cardstock. The banner was made with a Fiskars scallop banner punch and the middle star was punched with a Fiskars small star pop up punch. I added the two sticker stars and the bar at the top and strip at the bottom are Creative Imaginations Liberty adhesive stickers. The sentiment is made with a Spellbinders Shapeabilities die called ribbon banners. I typed the sentiment.

The stamp set you could possibly win if you play the challenge at Friends of Speedy TV this week is Hello Trucks.

We would love if you came over to Speedy TV and joined us this week.
