Just Taking a Break

It's a beautiful day and I have been working outside in the garden area and I will get back out there in a few hours, but I need a break.   And besides, if I pull too many weeds, my wrist will be too sore to craft!  Yikes!  Must prevent that!
Here is another card using up another left over digital piece.  It has been in my "to use up" bin for so long, I can't even find it in my computer.  So I think it is one I lost with my computer crash.  Sorry, can't remember the company who put it out.

 Card base is Brown Kraft from the Kraft Outlet.  Patterned papers are pieces from my stash.  The buttons are three different colors of card stock, cut out with a MFT button die.

Now, back to work for me.

Women In The Military

Along with my thank you cards to our deployed troops, I try to send a few feminine ones.  After all, we have a lot of women military personnel who need our thanks.
I really like this pink camouflage print - fun to use for T shirts.
I cut the T shirt out with MFT Graphic T Die-namic and stamped the #1 with the corresponding stamp set.  The stars stamped with Versamark onto the pink background is from the MFT set Pretty Pocket.
The tag is from The Kraft Outlet.

May 1

It is May Day but I am not posting a card with flowers this time.  Instead I am announcing a new challenge at the Die Cut Divas Challenge Blog.  I'm so excited to tell you that Doodle Pantry is our wonderful sponsor this month.  I was on Doodle Pantry's design team for several years, just recently stepping down.  My heart is still there.  Laurie Wilson's digital images are my absolute favorite of any digital store.
This month the theme for the Die Cut Diva's challenge is Something Yummy to Eat.  There is no shortage of digital images at the Doodle Pantry Store for that theme.  Over the course of the month, I and the other DCDC team members will give you a few samples from the DP store.
Here is my first card:
The pears are from the set  Pears and Raspberries.  Before printing I transposed the pre-colored lips from Kissy Lips and a pre-colored mustache from Mustache Mish Mash onto the pears.  After printing, I cut them out with Die-namic Circle Stax and colored the pears with Copics.  The beautiful background paper comes with the Pears and Raspberries set.

I hope you will check out the new challenge at Die Cut Divas and the Doodle Pantry Store too.

Just Hello

Yesterday evening, I pulled out about 20 images from my bin of left overs, colored, need to be colored, etc.  I was determined to use up some of them today.  When I saw the new sketch at MFT, this little image that I had already colored seemed just right for the sketch.

She is colored with copics and SU alcohol markers.  The papers and ribbon are pieces in my stash.
Here is the sketch I used
