Add Ribbon

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's time for Delightful Challenges.  This week our challenge is to add ribbon.  I decided that since I was doing a "scene" card, I would use the ribbon as part of the scene so my ground is made of American Crafts dotted ribbon.
For my image I've used Swinging Dolly from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.

I used my Silhouette to cut out this file from Miss Kate Cuttables.
The card is 5x7

Here's a close-up of the digital image.  I did cut off the branch on the top.

I hope you'll join in our challenge.

Button, Button

Our Delightful Challenge this week asks you to include buttons or brads on your project.  My BFF brought me some super cute shaped wooden buttons.  I think these little flowers are just the right embellishment for my Jubbly Hippo from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.

The papers are from my craft stash.  The image mat is a Spellbinders scalloped circle die.  The scalloped circle card base and mats are from SVG Cutting Files.  I used Jaded Blossom's Mini Tag Dies to cut out the sentiment and slipped it under the American Crafts twine.  Jubbly Hippo was colored with Copic markers.

Make a Splash

Hi Crafty Friends,
Today is my design team day on the Digi My World design team blog.   I'd like to share a cute summer project using the Digi My World Mermaids set.

This set has some really cute images as you can see:

I added my mermaid to Jaded Blossom's new Candy Caddy die and also used the Ticket Book die and a sentiment from the Happy Summer set.  The little fish is part of the Fish On set.

I also used my own homemade crinkle ribbon and some Queen & Co. Bubbles.  The waves were cut using a border punch and I colored the mermaid with Copic markers.

Thanks for stopping by.

Close to My Heart

Yes, I took the CTMH plunge and am now a consultant.  I really love the Cricut exclusive cartridges and the CTMH companion stamps.  I'm finding that the CTMH card stock cuts beautifully in my Silhouette and I love the ink pads so I figured, why not!
CTMH provides us with an exclusive CTMH website so that our friends (that's YOU) can order through us without having to attend a party, order a catalog, etc.  Not that hosting a party wouldn't be fun (I would love to get crafty with you!!), but sometimes a girl just wants to get her stuff - that's how I've always ordered.   So here's the link to my website if you'd like to browse.  If you'd like to place an order, that would be wonderful!!!  
Anyway, there are quite a few retiring products (here's the link) along with the July stamp of the month.  If you order $50 (before tax and shipping) you can get the stamp for $5.  
Pretty cool, huh?
If you do place an order through my site, please email me (lsuesart @ aol . com - without the spaces) or leave a comment here and I'll put your name in a drawing for some CTMH goodies.  

Thanks for supporting my new creative endeavor.

Hot, Hot, Hot

Time for a new theme at Delightful Challenges.  We're asking you to make something using WARM colors.  I'm using the Digital Delights by Louby Loo image called Ice Cream Roxy.

The sentiment is from the Flower Power Accessory set and the papers were in my stash.  I love this solid color twine from The Twinery.  Of course I used Copics to color my image.

A note of Thanks

The family on one of my daughter's former softball players raises Walla Walla Sweet Onions.  Every summer they send us a carton.  Hubby has been known to eat an onion sandwich when they arrive LOL!

I always make them something "onion-y" for their thank you card.

The onion is from a vegetable set I found in the Silhouette Online Store.  The card base is from SVG Cutting Files.  I used Jaded Blossom's Flag Dies  and Kind Thanks sentiment set.  Just a little twine bow to finish it off.

Hope you're having a good week.
What day is it?   HUMP day - woohoo!!!  (love that commercial)

Have a Sunshiny Day

Hi Crafty Friends,
I'm having so much fun with my Silhouette and SVG Cutting Files.  Today I made a treat/gift box perfect for summer goodies or, in my case, necessities for a day in the sun (lip balm, hand sanitizer, and sun screen).   The cut file is the Sun Glass Treat Box found HERE.

The monthly challenge at SVG Cutting Files is "only three colors" hence the white, purple, and gray.  I used the Flag dies from Jaded Blossom along with a stamp from JB's Happy Summer set.  I also used JB's gusset gift bag to hold the gifts and finished off the project with washi tape and Doodle twine.
Thanks for stopping by.

Birthday Fishes

Hi Crafty Friends,
The family is gone for a week so my Silhouette, computer, and Cuttlebug are close at hand on the kitchen counter.  I plan to craft as the spirit moves me LOL!

I've been wanting to play with my new Jaded Blossom stamps and dies and also cut more of the fabulous SVG Cutting Files images on my Silhouette.  So today I created a project for Jaded Blossom's monthly challenge, "Anything Summer."

Here's my little treat bag project:

from Jaded Blossom:  Ticket Book Dies and Happy Summer stamp set
from SVGCuttingFiles:  Fintastic Fish and Fish Bowl Slider Card(seaweed).
The fish is on an action wobble.  I also added Bubbles from Queen & Co. and used a wave border punch.  A little inking here and there and the treat bag is finished.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you're having a Happy Summer.

Flower Power Sky

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's time for July's new release at Digital Delights by Louby Loo.
For my Delightful Challenges design team project I'm sharing Flower Power Sky and a sentiment from the Flower Power Accessory set.

I love her bell bottoms and peace t-shirt.  I actually think I had a similar outfit!!
I've used papers from American Crafts, Spellbinders Wonky Rectangle dies, Doodle Twine, and EK Success punches.  This week's challenge theme is MY FAVORITE THINGS and the dies, punches, and twine are some of my favorite embellishments to use.  I colored Sky using Copic markers.

You can join in our challenge by creating something using your favorite embellishments.  Be sure to let us know what they are.  I encourage you to visit our Delightful Challenges blog to meet the newest members of our design team.  You'll get to see their first projects for our group.  While you're there, be sure to link up your FAVORITE THINGS project for a chance to win this week's prize from

Best Friends

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's my design team day at Digi My World and I'd like to share another cute image. This is from the Besties set found HERE.

Besties (BFF)
This is such a fun set.  It also comes in Clip Art if you're not wanting to color the images yourself.

The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Simple Sayings Candies set mounted on one of JB's Candy Charms and Banners dies.

Thanks for visiting.
