My last card today was created for the "Seeing Spots" Challenge over at the Meljen Designs Design Team blog, which you can find HERE! The challenge this week is to create a card or project using spotted doggies, spotted paper, spotted ribbon - anything spotted!
I created my card using a new digi -- Darling Dalmatian -- which is from Melissa's newest release called - 'A Dog's Day'- ! The entire set or individual stamps are both now available in the Meljen's Design Store, which you can find HERE,. I first colored my little Dalmatian with my Copic markers. I used a Scalloped edge die to cut him out in my Cuttlebug and chalked the edges in red to match. I found some 'spotted' paper in my scraps and then simply put everything together on a 5X5 card base. I really love these images and think they are all really fun and always make a cute card.
There are lots of other adorable images and these are a few more of my latest favorites - Bulldogs Bear, Country Time Water Can, and for you butterfly lovers, there is Daisy Butterflies.
And now...I'm pretty exhausted but I did get a lot done today and still otherwise feel pretty good. I hope to work on more cards tomorrow and then relax on Saturday. Sunday I'll be heading to the ANNUAL Indoor/Outdoor Craft Yard-Sale that is held has my LSS - Absolutely Everything. It's an awesome sale and all kinds of other vendors and crafters come and sell their goodies too. There are some fabulous deals and I'm looking forward to it. It's very much like their Black Friday sale, but with more products and more vendors. I can't wait and HOPE it's a good day and that I stay feeling good too!
Right now...my eyes are so tired, that I'm seeing spots!! I think that means it's time to get off the computer!!
A Little About Me
- Northeastern, Massachusetts, United States
- Purple is my favorite color and ironically - Purple is the Awareness Ribbon color for Fibromyalgia, an illness I personally live with. I had to stop working in 2006 due to Fibro and Degenerative Disc Disease. It's been a tough road at times, but I have a wonderful family and fantastic friends. I am a Mom to two awesome sons (Ages 21 and 26) and a wife and friend to a wonderful Hubby. We live in a tiny coastal community in Massachusetts and have lived here all my life. My hubby and my boys are my whole world and mean every thing to me! I cherish all three of my guys!! I am very lucky to be blessed with wonderful friends. I adore and cherish each of my friends as much as my family! I am an avid card-maker and love all types and stamping, and also love coloring with my Copics. I'm very lucky to have this whole new world on online friends that I've met through my Craft Groups. HUGS TO YOU ALL!!
