Hope You Can Cling To

Hi everyone!  Today starts the Hope You Can Cling To card drive on Splitcoast and we would love you to play along with us!  You can find all of the information and challenges in this forum!  My goal this year is to get a card done for each of the challenges.  I'm off to a great start!

This card is for Lydia's You Raise Me Up challenge.  We are to use the Paper Tole technique on our card.  It is hard to tell but my butterfly is up with pop dots.

This card is for Lori's Shine On! challenge.  We are to make a card that uses light to convey encouragement and hope.  I used my Gina K Designs Lighthearted Wishes for this card.

This card is for Dina's Hold Onto Your Hope Challenge.  We are to use a handle of some sort for our card so I used my new Lili of the Valley New Hat image.

I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Chocolate

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch challenge and this weeks CASology challenge,   This weeks cue card is chocolate, I immediately thought of a chocolate chip cookie from my Lawn Fawn Milk and Cookies set, cute no?  :)  I heat embossed the sentiment, 
the cookies were colored with Copics, popped up and a tiny dot of Cinnamon Stickles added to the chips.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Tweetie Pie

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches challenge.   As soon as I saw the sketch I thought of my Tweetie Pie image from Whipper Snapper.  This image puts a big smile on my face, too cute!  It is kind of tell in the photo but by accident the paper, ribbon and sequins all match so nicely!  Love when that happens!  Initially I was going to go with the kraft color but the blue fell together so well!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Nutty for You

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks Paper Smooches Sparks challenge!  This week our challenge is:
Even though it has been warm here the last couple of days, the trees are turning and the calendar says it is fall so I wanted to go with that type of color palette.  I went with one of my first Paper Smooches stamps sets and still one of my favorites Falling for You.  I love coloring this acorn, so fun!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Grass

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks CASology challenge, the cue card this week is grass.  My card is also for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  Another great sketch that I am sure I will use again!  Initially I thought of green for the grass but when looking through my stamps I decided on a different direction.  I chose this great image from my Sweet 'n Sassy Landscape Silhouettes set, embossing with Zing Chestnut embossing Powder.  I heat embossed a moon with vanilla embossing powder and then sponged with Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans for a night sky.  I used Washi Tape for the back strips.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!!
