previous post here, I used the same technique of spritzing and scrunching the More Mustard layer. I tore a strip of fabric to maek the ribbon, and I layered, layered, and layered with lots of Stampin' Dimensionals.

this fantastic card made by Jan Tink, and I decided that I needed to try to CASE it. Well, seeing as I don't own the Sweet Floral background stamp, so I quickly ordered and downloaded the Digital Brush set for My Digital Studio, and then came up with a digital layout. Instant gratification is so easy with MDS! I tried it out on a few of the latest In Colours and came up with these variations. It's so easy to change the colours with MDS. Then I printed them out on Whisper White and played around with mounting them on coordinating cardsotck. I couldn't decide on which ribbon to use so I used the Satin Ribbon, the Scallop Polka Dot Grosgrain, and the Ruffled Ribbon with each variation.

Ann Schach. I copied her flower and then mounted it on a flower punched out with the Fancy Flower punch. I printed out the sentiment and images on Very Vanilla card stock, and then I ran it through the Big Shot with the new Designer Frames Textured Impressions Folder. I tilted the fram to give the sentiment a funky look. I tore the paper to the shape I wanted first. The Pool Party coloured DSP behind it was torn, squished, spritzed with water and then scrunched up into a ball and then laid out in the sun to dry so that it looked extremely distressed. The bow was made with Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon which was tied into the bow, spritzed with water, scrunched up into a ball and laid in the sun to dry. Everything was sponged around the edges and sprayed with a Soft Suede marker and the colour spritzer tool. Don't you just love those extra large buttons. This card was so much fun to make that along the way I tried out some other techniques and actually came up with 3 different cards. I'll be posting the other two in the days to come!!

We have a fabulous colour challenge for you this week at Colour Q. Of course I absolutely had to join in this week, even though it's not really my week, but I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE purple and green. So I whipped up this page of us at the PNE last week. Of course I used My Digital Studio. It's so easy to alter the photos to black and white, and use whatever colours you'd like for the page.

So I have a little story for you. I finished up this cute little card tonight and was getting ready to post it, (challenge details at the bottom of this post) but with my photos taken of my card, I realized that my drink was empty, so I headed out to the carport, to get another Diet Coke. I got to the door and ran into this...
And here he is heading back into the carport for another course. He actually spent quite a while emptying out our freezer. We eventually realized that perhaps we should go empty our freezer when he was across the street muching away. So I ran lookout, as Brad went downstairs and emptied the freezer, I kept an eye on the bear from the upstairs window. On the last trip he realized that the freezer was empty, and wandered off towards the trail at the end of the street.

Today I have a cute little project to share. I found this little wooden box at a local craft store all roughed up and ready for some colour. I decided to try my hand at altering it. I pulled out my retired Nursery Suite DSP and went to work,. I struggled to cover over the letters, so I pried them off and die cut some out of chipboard with the Big Shot. I used a sponge and ink to cover over the actual parts of the box that were visible, but once they were inked up, the colour was too vibrant, so I decided to sponge over it with Very Vanilla Craft Ink which added a nice soft feel to the block. This little block opens up into a little keepsake box. This box is perfect for parents who don't know if they are expecting a little boy, or a little girl.
