Paper Sundaes #25 Challenge
Thought I'd give this challenge a try, Paper Sundae's #25 challenge is White Plus One....A predominantly white card, with one added color....this should be fun!! Fred She Said is hosting this challenge, check out Paper Sundae's blog for all the details, and what you could win from Fred She Said.
So..Ive been playing all weekend with my new sizzix, and finally using the cricut I bought...the kitchen island looks like the tazmanaian devil just came through...its a perfect day to get some crafting done, the weather is ugly...it's raining cats and dogs right now!!
So on to the challenge....I cut the white cs to a 4 1/2 square, embossed it with the swiss dots folder, cut various circles and flowers with both the sizzix and cricut from white, and parrot green cs...layered them, did a little paper piercing, used white gel pen for the stitching, and then added the green gem, and little hello tag...this one is going to a dear friend who needs a little pick me up this week...hope you'll give this one try, it was fun and not as easy as I first thought!!

Happy 4th all...of course I know its only the 3rd ;) Since my back is not cooperating with me today, Im up and down, alternating standing and sitting...ugh..however, it did give me an opportunity to play a little...Mark's Finest Papers is having a card challenge, the challenge is to use a die cut, so....being that Ive just inherited a sizzix and some dies and folders, thought I'd try a couple...OWH is also having a challenge for a birthday card for the US, this might be stretching the theme a tad, but I like it!
The Red CS is cut to a 5 1/2 square, and layered with a slightly smaller square of a DP in a weathered beige, and DP in stripes and stars, the larger star and circles were both cut with a sizzix die, and the sentiment was a freebie from Create with TLC
I love both of these blogs, TLC always has the most interesting ideas, and fab freebies!!..and Operation Write Home, too has the neatest posts...make sure you go visit!!
