Christmas in July with LPCOF Round 2


We are continuing the Christmas In July fun with Lil Patch of Crafty Friends!  Our challenges are always Anything Goes and for the month if July, we are featuring Christmas projects!


Our lovely sponsor this time around is Pattie's Creations and I have used Joy 2 for my card.  Slimline cards seems to be popping up here, there and everywhere so I thought I would try them out!


This paper is called Oh What Fun and is from Close To My Heat and was part of our seasonal catalog a while back but I love the colors and whimsical images so though it worked well with this fun image.  Added some snowflakes, CANDi embellies, and I know it's hard to see but I added some shimmer using a clear shimmer brush from CTMH.

I sure hope you will join us...these challenges run weekly right now and then we are back to bi-weekly challenges again come August.

Come along and have some fun with us!

Happy Crafting Friends!

Use up your Scraps with Di's Digis



Time for a new challenge over at Di's Digi Challenge and this week we want you to use up your scraps!  This challenge actually worked out perfect for me as I had just made a card (that I'll share tomorrow) and all the paper left overs and scraps were on my counter still!  I had these super fun Christmas/Winter papers from CTMH that I had out so decided to go with a winter card...and it's still July right, so let's stick with Christmas in July!

I have used Snowman and Robin (ooops, I didn't color the birdie like a robin) and these papers are actually reversible.  The pink has a lighter and darker side and the pattern paper is the trees and lettering on one side and the bi-coloured polka dots on the other!  Fun right and only 2 sheets of paper...and they were left over from a different card:-)

I hope you will pop over to the challenge blog to check out the fantastic DT creations from my teammates and then come on back to enter your card.  Our challenges are open for 2 weeks and while you do not have to use a Di's Dig or CandiBean image, if you do, you may be the lucky winner of 2 digis from Di as well as in the running for the random prize. 

Happy Crafting Friends!

Summer Fun


Yippeee, school is out and I am so excited!!  We don't have any plans to go anywhere or do anything excited, but let me tell you....I am NOT a teacher and am thankful we all survived Covid-19 schooling!

I am excited to be back with a super fun new card for our Di's Digi Challenge today.  Our challenge this time around is Summer Fun and it sure is feeling like summer around here so that is awesome!




I have used this cute lil guy fishing on his boat which is a perfect Summer Fun activity!  This image is called Fishing We Will Go. These cute papers are oldies but thought worked perfect for this card.  Paired it with some adhesive stud embellies and red paper from CTMH and voila!
