613 Avenue Create #25

Good Day!!!!!
At 613 Avenue Create we are challenged to make a fat page/card.
They are being sponsored by Lacy Sunshine 

and it just so happens I am using one of her awesome stamps! When you get a chance check them out! I am using 'Eleanor & Pickles-Egyptian (pre-colored)'

Isn't she just fabulous!
I made an easel card. This is considered a hybrid card because I used my digital software (MDS2) to make a frame around her and a small overlay.
I cut it out using Spellbinders, embossed it with an embossing folder from my friend Audrey, the flowers are from my friend Elizabeth, and the flourishes and butterflies are from SU. I also used stickles that my friend Elizabeth ordered for me (love those stickles and Elizabeth found them for me in every color!)  I used a punch from SU and created my sentiment in MDS2.

DDC #68 & Newsletter

It's Monday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Digi Darla's!
Before that I made this digital card front with MDS2 for the newsletter.
I used DD 'Cinderella is a Proof (sentiment)'

Now onto this weeks challenge.
How do you like my easel card using DD'Vintage Sailing Ship'?
Colored it with prisma colored pencils and cut it out along with my easel card with grand nestabilities and I turned it on it's side. I tore my image slightly and then chalked around it. My wood paper & the dropelets are from my stash. I added stickles to the sails and the windows.

Lasting Memories #145

Lasting Memories has a brand new challenge for us this week!
I originally wanted to do a spray of butterflies but I was told butterflies are not for boys!
I love my airplanes! These are pix of my Great Nephew (pre school pictures)
This is not a Digital LO, it's actually paper! 
I used a Digi Darla image 'Living Airplane 6', colored in paintbrush because I wanted to print out more than one. I fussy cut out my airplanes. He adores his Grandpa (PaPa) and his PaPa works for the airlines and drives planes so plane's are perfect! 

Chic Challenges

At Chic Challenges, they have a fab sketch for us to use!

This came out nothing like I had planned but I actually like the way it came out.
Well, technically it's not 100% SU but close to it. My DP is the front and back from SU. I used a lace border punch from SU, cut out my Eiffel Tower and tore it and chalked the edges. Also used a butterfly punch with coordinating stamp. The stickels on my butterfly and flower and the jewels are from my stash. I used a word window punch from SU and so is my sentiment!

LM # 142

HI!!! It's Sunday and that means Lasting Memories has a new challenge for us and it's called
I bet you're thinking what's that?
It's a mixture of masculine & feminine Like Brother & Sister, Husband & Wife, Mother & Son ect...
I took it literally! I made a LO of a leather piece I made in 1987.
Framed it in Lace. (I was cleaning out some stuff and found my leather piece)
This is digital made with MDS2, the piece was too big for my paper and I didn't want to cut it!
