VCMP Challenge #9: Cut It Out

VCMP Challenge # 3 : Funky Fold

The Funky Fold card was so much fun to do after getting the cut on the card stock right. I realized after cutting a whole piece of card stock wrong that you can't do this in the dark! I love this design and can't wait to try it with other themes. This little French Scottie reminds me so much of  the three Scottish Terriers that we owned or should I say owned us. We had a Wheaton Scottie named Duchess, and the two black Scotties were Jacque and Tara. I love Scottish Terriers and I see one in my future but until then I will keep coloring Scottie digi's. 
 Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!

February ODBD Challenge

The Challenge was to include Yummy ribbon On our cards. One of my daughters bought this ribbon for me and I don't know the company.. I have been hoarding it for several years and thought it was about time to use it. I believe it goes well with the Doodle Pantry Falling Ants stamp.

The paper is Colorbok Summer Kiss. Have a blessed day and thank you for stopping by!

I used just the flowers and the sentiment that came
with this adorable digi set.

OWH Midweek Throw down Challenge

I finally got my OWH midweek throw down challenge done fairly quickly. Thanks to Paula S. with OWH who gave a tutorial on cutting and organizing our card stock and designer paper for the card fronts. I got busy after reading her tutorial and started cutting and organizing my paper and card stock into mats for my A2 cards. I also went through die cuts and digi stamps that were colored and matched the papers to those. It has really been nice to have the card fronts together instead of wandering around my craft room searching for the right paper. I still have more to organize but I have a great start. Thank you Paula for a great tutorial; you have no idea how much it helped me. Thanks to my awesome daughter Holly who printed a bunch of cards for me with the OWH stamp printed on the back. Those were already cut and folded so between Holly and Paula I am good to go! Thanks to both of you!
 The SVG cut for the street lamp is from Images by Heather M. The paper is Prima Botanical  6x6 paper stack.The Bible verse was done on my PC.  The park bench is a digi stamp and I will have to  post later and give credit to the designer. The bench was colored with Copics that Holly gave me for my birthday in December.
