                                     Now for my project.

I used the rose file to decorate my card. I made this card for some friends that will be getting married in June. I used their color scheme, black, white, red and a touch of grey. I used a Sizzix embossing folder to emboss the white cardstock, and I used black & red half pearls to dressup the embossing.  I cut a few swirls using the swirls & flourishes from the library in SCAL. I chalked all the petals of the rose and leaves, the leaves are from a Cricut cartridge.

I put black half pearls on the ends of the embossed swirls and a larger red in the middle where the swirls meet.

There is a great video on the Creative Kuts' blog
( ) that is very helpful on how to put
this flower together.

Next up is Connie (CK)-- 

Thanks for "hopping" with us! Hope you will find something you like and that you will be inspired by some of the projects you have seen or will see when you have finished this blog hop!!

It's Summer Time

For my DT project this week, I made a 2 page layout using the It's Summer Time file from Creative Kuts.
I put the door on the ice cream truck and made the steering wheel and seat with basic shapes in the SCAL program. This is a really cute file, would go great with all those popsicle and ice cream pictures!!

The paper i used is from a DCWV stack, called The Everyday Stack. You get 60 sheets of paper and it was on sale for $3.99, normally $5.00.

Sheffield Place Card

Mother's Day card to send to the Sheffield Place. A place for women and children. You can read and learn about this organization here--

For this card I used the standing bear from the Lucky To Have You file. I cut an extra head and made it larger for the rearend and just turned the head upside down looking through the legs. The inside bear is the standing bear.

I started to make a card with flowers and a pretty sentiment or poem but the idea for this bear hit me and made me smile. I'm hoping that it will make who every recieves it smile too.
