Thinking of you...

Hi to all my blogland friends  :)

This weeks challenge at 613 Avenue Create is a popular one, it's our unique Create Your Own Challenge.  Here is our current chart:

I used an image from our new sponsor
visit the shop HERE

The image is called  Mouse toting big daisies flowers/ladybugs 
and it is a pre-colored image.  She also offers B & W images.
from the chart I used:
#1 image/patterned paper  #2 sentiment  #3 solid color paper  #4 stitching  #5 hemp

I made the background paper from scraps.  I glued 1" strips to a piece of CS then cut that piece into 1" strips.  I glued those in alternating directions on the card front.

Stop by 613 Avenue Create to see the adorable creations from the DT ladies!  And to purchase this image please visit Toadstool Printables!


This card should qualify for the following challenges:

Be Yourself

So here's my final post for our Block Party at 613 Avenue CreateCome join us for a new challenge called 1,001 Techniques, prizes and a fun DT Trivia game!  I've also created a card using another one of our sponsors this week Chubby Mermaid
Diane's images are very detailed and I love them but this time I cropped the yoga girl from the main image so I could make a more CAS card.  The techniques I used are the
Bokeh Technique, stamping, Copic coloring, fussy cutting, bow tying.  I really like the technique and will be playing with it more.  Click the link to go to a tutorial.

Stop by our neighborhood at 613 Avenue Create and join our many techniques can you incorporate into one project?

It's Party Time!

Hi Everyone!  It's finally time for the 613 Avenue Create Block Party!  We are celebrating our 2nd Anniversary so come join the fun we have a DT Trivia Contest with 4 prizes available just for that, there are 20 other prizes available you just have to link up, and our weekly challenge has 4 available prizes from some of our favorite sponsors, and don't forget our Awesome DT with all of their inspiration this week!

This will be one of 3 posts for today!  I've been busy!  LOL!   I was fortunate enough to work with and SVG/image set by The Cutting Cafe called BALLOON FUN PRINTABLE & CUTTING FILE SET.  For this project I used the oval balloon to make a Birthday Shaker Wand.  I thought this was a pretty cool idea (if I do say so myself LOL) and I made sure to use a lot of glue so that it didn't come apart while shaking it around!  The stick is a lollipop stick but about 12" long, I have no idea what it's for or where I got them!
#5 colored with Copic marker to match the project

sides of the foam colored with Copics to blend with paper
So come join the party at 613 Avenue Create and you could win some fantastic prizes!
