LOTV and Colour Create Challenges!

We have a wonderful color combo for you this week at Colour Create chosen by Liz and it is:
Extra Option - Christmas or Oriental

You are going to love all the wonderful creations by the other design team members!!!!

The sketch I used is from the talented Dawny at Papertake Weekly, this is where I am entering this card. I am using the adorable stamp from Sugar Nellie called "Angel Wishes".  She can be found in the Home Grown section at Funky Kits.  I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEW COUNTRY COUSINS!!!  The papers are from MME and Bo Bunny.  The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts along with the gold pearls.  I used gold stickles to accent the flowers and stardust stickles on the wings and the puppy's hat.  BTW that would be Rambo my precious pup again!


This week at the LOTV Challenge the theme is:

I always seem to have problems with boy cards.  I just don't want to use a star all the time.  I think this image is too cute though and is called "Lazy Afternoon". You can find it at the Lily of the Valley Store.   My brother just had a little outpatient surgery and needs to take it easy, so I am going to send this to him.

The sketch I used is from Sketch Saturday, so I will enter it there. The papers are KaiserCraft Duchess Collection.  I used some button, twine, my EK Success Frond punch and some raffia lace.  I have sewn al the edges and colored with distressed inks.  The postage looking stamp is from Walmart and I think the brand is Stampology.

Again, I think the DT did a fantastic job with all the boy images.  Their cards are adorable!!!!!!

I will be back tomorrow with a card for Just Magnolia, so check back with me.

Thank you all for the sweet emails and comments on my cards.  Sometimes I forget to email you back, please just try me again and I promise I will try to respond.

Big hugs from Texas!
