Chase Your Dreams JUGS85

5 Thoughts

Hello :-)

It’s hard to believe this school year is ending!  I’m ready for summer, but I’m not ready for my kids to grow up this fast!  This fall, all our kiddos will be in full-day school (sniff, sniff).  It’s a good thing I get to soak them up all summer!!!

Today’s card is great for a new graduate, or anyone making a change in their life (such as a new job…hint, hint, Jos!).

Chase your dreams CP116 JUGS85 (Large)

I LoVe this girl!  She’s from MTME Chase Your Dreams.  I had a lot of fun playing with her in Adobe Photoshop.  If you click on the image, you’ll be able to see the coloring better.  I overlayed patterns on top of colors to create different textures.  I’m loving digi’s!!

The shapes were all cut using Nestabilities and my Big Shot.  The blue “sky” was also embossed using Quickutz Polkadots embossing folder.  The “grass” was fringed using some super-cool fringing scissors I picked up at WalMart!   For the sentiment, I cut it with a Spellbinder’s Tags 5 die.

I also participated in this week’s Just Us Girls Color Challenge JUGS85.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello :-)

I’m excited to show you my card today, it was a fun one!!  I try to think “out of the box” with my hubby.  He always appreciates my creations, crazy or not (or at least he knows what he’s supposed to say, hehe!)!

Today’s My Time Made Easy Pretty Palette colors were perfect!  Try them out and show us your creation here!


I used Card Patterns sketch 115.

For my hubby, who is a fantastic daddy, and loves to play golf…
MTMEPPC10  Father's Day 11 Tim (Large)

Isn’t it fun?!  I made the golf ball with scallop circle nesties and a polka dot embossing folder.  I sponged the edges and surface in Garden Green and Close to Cocoa to give it a used look.  The flags represent the flags at each hole.  I cut ribbon, wrote numbers on them and attached a thin piece of cs.  The grass was cut using a grass die and my Big Shot.  I hand cut a golf tee and laid it in the grass.  What about that sentiment?!  It is one (of many) in the newly released For Dad stamp set from MTME.  I love so many of the sentiments in this Father’s Day set.  I had a hard time choosing which one to use :-)

Be sure to check out the rest of the MTME Pretty Palette Team’s creations!!

I hope you play along with us this week!

Thanks for looking!
