Lacy Sunshine #20

It's 'Anything Goes' at Lacy Sunshine but I feel like Christmas and her new release 'Polly Poinsettia Flower Pot Pretty' is just the sweetest!
This is a Middle Step card and I colored her with copic markers and prisma colored pencils. I then fussy cut her out (Got just a little fussy! LOL!) and popped her up.
My DP is from SU. but she needed something else...
Oh Yah...Stickles. I put stickles on the bow on the pot, center of the poinsettia's, her head band & the ruffle on her dress, and her antenna's.

DSC #59 with Lacy Sunshine

This week Digitally Sweet is having Anything Goes with Lacy Sunshine.
She has such cute digis and she gave us all one to work with but I had to use more! LOL!

I used 'Pumpkin Boo, Jack-O-Lantern Snow Globe and Leaves Digi bits'
I colored it in Paintbrush but they were all PNG'S. I went online and found the FREE lollipops as clip art and made them look like trees in the snow globe. I didn't use my digital software at all, I did all this on WORD (I just kept clicking buttons to see what each one would do!)

CWLC #62

First, I have to apologize for waiting for the last day but...
Our challenge this week is to add real or faux sewing at Created With Love Challenges and I admit, I LOVE THIS CHALLENGE and it was totally fun to make this card!
This is a hybrid card, the background and the sewing machine are made with digital software by SU (MDS2) and the sewing, I don't like to use my machine on paper because it dulls the needle and somehow jams my machine quite possibly something I am doing! LOL!
I used my framelits from SU and a matching stamp for the dress form and then popped it up with pop dots. Also I used a frame punch from SU for my sentiment. I didn't (from my stash) have enough tiny buttons for the dress so the remaining I applied stickles. The other buttons are from my stash also.
