Pump with flowers

The top image is my card using the bottom photo as a guide for colors.  The flowers in the wonderful old pail is a free image from Bev Code, Bee Cee Artistic Digital Images which we can use in this challenge.  I have colored the image with pencil crayons.  I used a corner punch from Carla Craft, usually the string would show all around the 4 edges of the card, but I had not left enough room, so I just added the yellow string to the corners.  The dark brown designer paper is from Stemma,- Damask a Scrap pad kit.  The ribbon is from Micheals.  The metal butterfly and colored cardstock from my supplies.

Basket of Flowers

CDAC Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge MMSC96 as pictured above Plain or fancy.  My card leans more toward the fancy.  The beautiful Basket of Flowers image is from Karens Doodles.  The chipboard pieces are from K&Company, Brenda Walton.  The flowers have beads glued in the centers and
all the cardstock and the rhinestones are from my supplies.  The border punch is from Martha Stewart.  This was a fun card to make, but had to keep making my card larger to fit in all the extra pieces.  I don't think this is the best photo I have ever taken, the beads don't show too well.  Will have to work on this.

Think I will stay inside and do some sewing later today.  It is still very cold outside though it is a sunny day. We still have about 4 or 5 inches of snow on the ground.  Suppose to be getting some warmer weather in a few days.  Looking forward to some golf  soon. Our one group has their opening on the 11th of April.

Fancy Dress Fairy

This card is to be entered into the CDAC Embellishment Challenge.  The challenge is to use this free digi from Inktegrity or use one purchased from their blog.  The embellishments are to be buttons (at least three).  I have colored the image with copics.  The Designer Cardstock is from DCWV Nana's Kids with glitter.  I used a zig emboss pen to apply the glitter, it goes on blue, but is suppose to be clear.  When I put the white glitter on it the blue color must have been absorbed into the glitter - thus the blue tinge on the wings.  The buttons I chose to use are small fairies, I cut the shank off the back of them and colored two of them with copics.  I used my EK Success punch for the lattice work down the right side.  I think one of my grandaughters will enjoy receiving this card.

The weather is sure cold here, snowed on Wednesday, and it was windy, a real nasty day.  But it did not keep us home from cards on Thursday, two others went in my car to our friends house.  She lives in the country with a long lane. It's about a 40 minute drive to her house.  Not a great drive on the way, but with the sun out the roads were clear when we came home.  Still busy with curling, we are getting into our finals now.  Our competetive team is in the semi finals on Friday and on Tuesday I am in the finals for our Carousel Series - you play on a different team every week.
