You are something special

Hello! Today is the start of the Aloha Friday Challenge For The Guys- so get busy and enter those masculine cards to win digi's from our sponsors-

and



Here is my project:




This beaver is simply adorable, and I used the sentiment that came with the digi for a Father's Day card for my father-in-law. This image (colored with Copics) and sentiment is from Every Day Animals from Just Me Digital Stamps. I used a Taylored Expressions inside/outside stitched circle on my printed panel, and added a background panel I made with Distress Oxide inks and a Cricut mountain border. I also cut the "dam" logs with my Cricut, and I hope it looks like the stacked logs that beavers cut down to make the dams.

Thanks for stopping by!

Kitty Bee Designer Spotlight

Hello! Today is my spotlight day at Kitty Bee Designs, and here is my project today-


I made this card for my husbands birthday on April 25, and it's from me and the two fur children-Filo Beddoe (Yorkie) and Sophie (Beagle).

I try hard at CAS, but I think I achieved it here. That image is I Heart You Pup, here at the Kitty Bee Designs Etsy Store, colored with Copics. The background paper is from Authentique, and I used MFT's fishtail banner dies and Stampendous dog phrases for the sentiment, and an Elizabeth Crafts Design die (Spiral Pull Card) for the hearts out of red scrap paper.

I hope you like it, and thanks for visiting!

Designer Spotlight at Kitty Bee Designs

Hello! Today is my spotlight day at Kitty Bee Designs, and here is my project today-




This is so out-of-the-box for me! This card is all about the shapes. The background paper (old Creative Memories) dictated the whole color scheme. I used My Favorite Things inside & out stitched ovals and circles for the shapes and a Little B die sentiment, all of them cut out of my scrap bin papers. That image is Cupcake Suprise, here at the Kitty Bee Designs Etsy Store, colored with Copics

I hope you like it!
