Christmas Card #2 - Anna's Layered Cards 2

There are 2 Christmas cards on the Cricut cartridge Anna's Layered Cards 2.  I showed you the first one yesterday.  This is the second.

I love the little cut out Christmas trees on this one.  I will probably save the cut outs and use them on another card.  I will add a sentiment later.  

Thank you for visiting with me today.

God Bless You!!! Peggy

Christmas Card 1-Anna's Layered Cards 2

I received my auto ship Cricut cartridge from HSN last week.  I really have to stay away from HSN because I love Anna Griffin products.  It's hard on my purse.  This cartridge is Anna's Layered Cards 2.  I've been making some of the cards on it and I will show them to you over the next couple of days.  This is the first is one of the Christmas cards on it.

All you have to do with this cartridge is decide on your colors, cut the layers and glue them together.  

Thank you for stopping by today.  

God Bless You!!!! Peggy

Second Card For DS4J New Releases

The second image we were given to use for a project from the new releases at Digistamps4Joy is named Mermaid.  You can get her in black and white to color or pre-colored.  This is my card with her.

I colored her with Prismacolor Premium Colored Pencils and I love how she turned out.  She's not perfect by everyone's standards but I'm pleased.  She is another of JenLee's drawings.  The little fish are from a set of stickers I just happen to pick up at Tuesday Morning on one of mine and Donna's excursions.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Be sure to visit the DS4J Store to see all the new releases.

God Bless You!!!  Peggy

New Release Sunday - Digistamps4Joy

Time for a new release at Digistamps4Joy.  Team B (of which I am a member)was given 2 of the digis to play with.  For my first card, I chose this cutie.

This little guy is called My Little Tree.  I colored him using Promarkers.  The trees are another digi I had and the little deer is a print then cut file from Cricut Access.  I tore some white paper and added some Stickles to make it look like mounded snow.  Thank you JenLee for allowing us to create with your new release.

Thank you for joining me today.  I hope you will go to the DS4J Store and check out all the new releases.  Come back tomorrow for my second card.

God Bless You!!! Peggy

Mod Squad Challenge - All That Glitters

Today begins week 4 of the Mod Squad Challenge.  That's the week Kathy Krug and I are responsible for.  We chose the theme "All That Glitters."  We ask you to add glitter to your project.  We have 2 lovely sponsors, KatScrappiness and Sparkle n Sprinkle,  along with 2 great prizes.  So you will want to enter.  You may enter as many as 3 times.

This is my card using the digistamp Fancy Butterflies from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  
The background paper and the die cut is glitter paper.  I used the pre-colored butterflies and added glitter to them.  The sentiment is from an Anna Griffin Cricut cartridge.  

Thank you for joining me today.  I hope you will visit again soon.

God Bless You!!!  Peggy

613 Avenue

Design Team A is responsible for the inspiration for the new 613 Avenue Create Challenge this week.  Our sponsor this week is Rick St. Dennis and the theme is Anything Goes with a twist of Create a Tag. I chose the image Isabella - Sunny Days for my tag.  

I must admit the tag is rather large but the background came from a pad of KandCompany Mega Tags which I got on sale a while back. I almost forgot I had them until I needed to make a tag for this challenge. I colored the image with Promarkers and the sunflowers are from Martha Stewart.  I think this tag would make a good addition to any present.

Thank you for joining me today.  I hope to see some of your creations in the challenge.  

God Bless You!!! Peggy

Digistamps4Joy Progressive Freebie Challenge

Digistamps4Joy Progressive Freebie Challenge for June is full swing right now.  JenLee donated a lovely image for us to use again this month.  Her name is Misteri-Graduate. This is my card using her.

These box cards seem quite popular right now.  This one came from the Cricut cartridge All Occasion Box Cards.  I cut it out with my Cricut Explore and improvised on it a bit.  I colored the image with Promarkers using the colors of my kids High School.  I think it turned out cute enough.  Now if I only had someone to send it to.

Thank you for visiting with me today.  I always love to hear your remarks.  

God Bless You!!! Peggy

    Mid-Month Post for June DS4J Challenge

    The 15th of the month marks the mid-point for the DS4J Challenge.  It is always Anything Goes.  This month we have a twist of "Fairies".  

    I just returned from Virginia but I wanted to play with this little image.  Her name is Fairy Wishes, drawn by JenLee.  She is in the Digistamps store.  I printed this pre-colored image on white cardstock along with the sentiment.  Then highlighted the edges with pink ink and added crystal beads to the dandelions.

    This Clean and Simple card will go to my daughter-in-law's mother who is fighting a serious infection in her leg.  We would appreciate your prayers for her.

    Thank you for joining me today.  I hope you will go by the Digistamps4Joy Challenge Blog and see all the great inspiration by the Design Team.  

    God Bless You!!!
