Another ABC challenge entry....I'm on a roll!!!!

 Ok, I admit I MIGHT be stretching the challenge theme over at ABC Christmas Challenge this week, but hey, can't hurt to try right?!?!!  Their challenge is the letter B - so you have to use a BEAR (check), and either Bunting (had to look that up to see what it was!), Banners, Brads, Buttons, Bows, and Blooms.  WELLLLL, my ribbon is tied in a bow - NOT a pretty bow mind you but it is a BOW!  BUT for added measure, I included another B - baubles! The Christmas Baubles in Barry's paw - that should count too, don't ya think?? (I can see Samantha now....shaking her head at me!!! LMAO)

Anyway, here is my tent card I made using Barry from The Stamp Fairy
The CS is Kiwi Kiss (SU) and the DP is from Cosmo Cricket - can't remember the pad its from though, it is pretty old!  The ribbon is Riding Hood Red (SU)

 Side view:
(see how the top flap folds under the image to keep it closed and upright?)

 Open view:

Anyway, was worth a shot!!!! LOL  Wish me luck!!!!  HAVE A GREAT DAY!

Simon Says.....ANYTHING GOES!


This week, our challenge for you is ANYTHING GOES!
The DT are showcasing ECHO PARK products, so make sure you check out the amazing selection! The papers are incredible to work with - a nice thickness, wide variety of colours and designs....I must say, Echo Park is MY fave DP at the moment!!!

Here is my project:

I have used Penny Black - Garden Friends stamps set.  The CS is Core'Dinations and the DP is  Echo Park - Happy Days.  I used  Copics to colour the image. The butterfly is a 3 layer butterfly using the EK Success Butterfly layering punch (LOVE THIS!!!) - in real life there are 3 layers of the butterfly, it looks so pretty popping out of the card!!!

ABC Christmas challenge....

Hello everyone!! Happy Sunday!!!!  I decided to use these really cute reindeer die cuts that I bought from ETSY to make some Christmas cards for next year.  These cards are scraplings so are a bit smaller than regular cards, but still cute, all the same.  I am entering these cards into the  ABC Christmas Challenge Blog - Anything Goes

The CS and ribbon are Riding Hood Red and the DP is from Jillibean Soup - Christmas Eve Chowder.  I was able to use up bits from other projects, so that makes me happy when I don't waste such cute paper!!! IF anyone knows which Cricut cartridge these cute reindeer are from, PLEASE let me know.....  THANKS!

Better run and take the dogs for a walk!  We are heading to my in-laws for a Prime Rib Dinner...yummmm! Can't wait!!!!
