contributor's showcase

due to professional committments, it is with sadness and regret that i will no longer be on the team of fairies. at this time, i have declined any further involvement in the contributor's showcases  at cute and some blog.  however i will continue to support the fairies efforts to encourage crafters to submit their creations for others to enjoy and be inspired by their talents!

contributors showcase #3

Monday, April 19 is the beginning of registration for Contributors Showcase #3. We would really love to showcase and reward your talent, so if you have a new craft (even one prepared for another challenge/contest) why not register it in the showcases too! We are also working on some exciting new things to introduce into the showcases in the near future; however, this will only be possible if we can get enough contributors.

We believe your projects are very special, that you are very talented, and would love to present your creations to as many viewers as possible. We believe you can inspire and motivate others through your talent, so we're challenging you to show your crafts in our showcases! at cute and some, see link in my sidebar!!

elephant card

this thank you card was created for a co-worker who wanted a quirky card for a friend who loves elephants. i went into design studio (ds) to determine if i had a cart with an elephant and while ds did display carts with an elephant image, i did not have any of the carts on the list!  somewhere in my overdraft memory (lol!) bank, i thought i had a elephant image so i just kept clicking on the carts i had that may have the image and when i clicked on everyday paperdolls i did not immediately find the elephant but i knew i was in the right cart because surprisingly, it has many animals including lion, giraffe, monkey, ostrich and more! what a bonus! 

i don't know if i hit the quirky factor as i originally wanted to cut the elephant out of an animal print paper...i have giraffe, tiger, leopard and more but with that overdraft memory bank!  i couldn't remember where i put those papers.  perhaps i should revisit how i organize...?  the shell buttons under the word "thanks" is a coverup for a smudge i made with my inky fingers, oops.

susie's and vikki's christmas club challenge #12

the theme at susie's and vikki's christmas club challenge this week is silver and blue or blue and i created the above card with paper from my christmas scrap stash, the tag from a paper stack i bought about 5 years ago, the snowflake brad from my embellishment stash, the thicker silver snowflakes from a garland purchased at the dollar store about 8 years ago and cut up and finally the "believe" came from an embellishment pack from a liquidation store!  i'm still meeting my goal of using the products i have on hand.

the above two cards are my recycled christmas cards in each case i just added embellishments from my stash.  three more cards ready for christmas!

look what i won from cute and some!

i won a flag book!!!  it arrived on thursday but i have been out of town visiting my mom and brothers for easter.  i have used the photo that audrey from cute and some had posted of her flag book because my batteries are not working :(  i intend to use the flag book to make a small scrap book of scamp, my fur baby or if the truth be told, the fur baby that lives in the house as her loyalities are for the person with food or the most comfortable bed!  audrey also included matching papers that i will create embellishments with and there were rub ons with small scale designs suitable for a small book!  when i get batteries for the camera and get the printer issues resolved to print scamp photos for the album, i will post my finished project. thanks audrey!
