Today is my last post as guest designer for Beccy's Place.  It's been a fun experience.  Beccy is so sweet and easy going.  She creates lovely things.  Like I said last week, I love her flower digis.  This one is called 'Bullion Roses Set'.  You can find it in Beccy's Shop.

Card Supplies:

Paper A La Mode Challenge - Fashionista

The Outlawz Paper A La Mode has a fun challenge this week.  It is "Fashionista".  This week's sponsor is Rick St. Dennis.  Some of Rick's designs are rather edgy but I like his Fashion Ladies and Hat Ladies.  The image I'm using for my project is 'Adriana'.   I think she fits our challenge nicely.  What do you think?

I haven't colored too much in black & red but I wanted to try it.  Don't know if I rocked it or  not.  Think I need more practice.

Card Supplies:
5X7 card base
Paper - 3 pieces of different color cardstock cut 5X7, 4X7, 3X7.  Edges are cut & embossed using Anna Griffin dies. 
Image - Adriana by Rick St. Dennis
Jewel Flourishes

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making it, although while I was coloring the red and black, I wasn't sure how it would turn out.  LOL.  Enjoy your week end.  God Bless You!!!! Peggy

Beccy's Place - Dog Tales

Beccy Muir of Beccy's Place Blog is a talented artist.  She designs digistamps.  She has a variety of stamps in her shop.  I love a lot of her designs, especially the flowers.  I wish I could get them all.  I have a flower card to share with you next Friday but today I want to share with you one of her August releases.  It's called Dog Tales.  I especially loved the little dog I used.

Card Base - Silhouette Online Store file #50360 Paw Print Spray Card by Suzanne Cannon.  
Image - Bassett from Beccy's Dog Tales Image Set. This one is pre-colored.
Bones - Another Silhouette File but I couldn't find the ID #.  The name is Bone.  I cut several sized of these. 
Sentiment is computer generated.  

I didn't take a picture of the inside but it had a bigger bone like the one on the front and it said "Sorry you're sick."  I gave this card to a friend who was just diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.  He is struggling terribly so your prayers for him will be appreciated.  I hate cancer.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope all your news this week will bring joy to your heart.  God Bless You!!!!  Peggy

Eureka Stamps Challenge - Something With Wings

The Eureka Stamp Challenge for today is Something With Wings.  I'll bet you can't guess which item with wings I chose.  Oh, you cheated.  You looked at the picture.  I love butterflies and the fact they represent New Life.  I made this card with no coloring and I loved it.

Card Supplies:
5X5" card base - it is actually a label I bought from the Silhouette online store.  The item # is 40390.  I opened the label in Silhouette Studio, sized to the size I needed, mirror imaged it and welded the two together.  I think it made a pretty ornate card.
Image - Eureka Image #40403 Happiness Like a Butterfly
Die Cut - Anna Griffin Die
Flowers - large flower made with Cricut Cartridge Mother's Day Bouquet.  Small flowers are from a punch.
Butterflies - Martha Stewart punches
Ink to highlight the edges

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you will visit the challenge and see what the other DT members came up with for this challenge.  God Bless You!!! Peggy
