THIS Is Why..

I don't do the Technique Lover's challenge most of the time!! Talk about tricky!! I don't know if it was me, or lack of sleep, but I swear the directions are written in Greek.....thank goodness for pictures, LOL!! What am I babbling about, well, today's TLC was to make a card of project using this triangle fold medallion. You can find the directions here. I decided that I would try to use up some scraps, so I dug out my retired Ginger Blossom DSP from SU and got to work. I made my medallion according to the directions and then added a flower brad to the center(don't remember the brand, but I got them at Archiver's). I layered it on another piece of the DP and then layered it with River Rock, Groovy Guava, and Ruby Red. The base is Whisper White with the flower stamp from Embrace Life stamped all over, colored with my markers and ink pads, and then the edges were sponged. I added some GG and RR stitched ribbon and also some spiral clips and brads. The sentiment is from Flourishes, part of the Many Sentiments set, and the hardware is from We R Memory Keepers. I am super tired tonight, so I am off to bed!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

MFT Monday..

So, it is Monday and that means it is time for another Who's That Girl challenge over in the MFT member company forum. This weeks challenge was to use the My Favorite Things set, Gone to the Dogs, along with at least two different patterned papers and 3 buttons. You know me and my DP and embellishments...I was ALL OVER this one, LOL!! I stamped my Gone to the Dogs image on Whisper White with Black Stazon, as well as two different pieces of Sweet Always DP from SU. I paper pieced the shirt and skirt and then colored the rest in with my SU markers. I layered the image with Pink Pirouette, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip. I then placed two pieces of the DP under the image and added some layered ribbons to it. I layered the Pink Pirouette WIDE grosgrain, Chocolate Chip wide stitched and some White Taffeta. I then did some piercing and added a ton of white brads. The flowers are from the SU Flower Fusion 2 packet and the two pink buttons are also from SU. The orange button I got from Paper Pretties. My sentiment is from the Essential Sentiments set, isn't it cute!! I punched it out with my word window punch from SU. I hope you decide to play along don't forget, if you upload your card to the gallery using the keyword MFTWTG10 by midnight on Wednesday, November 19th, you will be entered into the drawing for a $5 MFT store certificate!Well, that is it for me for now, I will hopefully be back later with more crafty goodness for you to oogle. LOL!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
