My Sheri Crafts Challenge- # 149- Valentine's Day

Hello to all of you,
Today's challenge at My Sheri Crafts is to include a heart! That seems easy enough! I am hoping we will get more participation this week! :)
I used one of Sheri Baldy's images! I have 6 granddaughter's and I thought this little treat holder would be nice to give to them on Valentine's Day! The Heart Doily Border is from La La Land Crafts! The Open Spring Sprigs is from Frantic Stamper! I used From The Heart die from Verve! The paper is from my good  friend Sue Crease so I have no clue what it is called!?!? I colored her in with my Copics! That's about it! I cut a 5x5 paper slightly to give me the pocket shape I was going for!

Anyway, I hope you get a little inspiration when you come and visit!
Hugs, and happy crafting!
Sandy.

Bee Mine- New Release at Digi My World

This is Sandy here from A Little Piece Of Heaven!
My Project today is... this fun fox fold shaped Valentine card!
I love how simple this was to make!  If you are interested in this fold, you can find it here!
I used Memory Box,Corner Bow, and then added a gem! In the top corners of the card, I just cut the swirl from the same die and added Stickles, Crystal! The cute little fox image was colored with Copics! I then used a white gel pen to add the little stitching to finish it off!

Digital Delights- Wednesday- 3-D Month

I am excited to start this year as being a DT member at Digital Delights!
Jane Savage and I will be taking turns posting, so I will be posting every other Wednesday! If you haven't seen any of her work, you need to stop on by her blog! She is an extremely talented lady!!!
The two of us decided we are going to be doing a themed month every month, and for this month we chose to do 3-D card/projects!
So... here is my card!
Here is a side view of it!
I chose to use the Teapot Shaped SVG card base found here! The image is called, "Poor Luvvy" and can be found there as well! It comes pre-colored as well!
I used Martha Stewart's, Arched Lattice, and Spellbinders, Scalloped Circles on my card! I colored the digi with my Copics! I am a Copic girl, what can I say! I just LOVE them!!! :)
With it being winter and all, I thought this was pretty fitting! So many colds, and the flu bug, etc going around! Knock on wood, we haven't suffered from any of it yet, but it has ran through the family already!
Anyway,
Hugs, and happy crafting!
Sandy.

My Sheri Crafts Challenge- #148- Let It Snow

Welcome back for another year of My Sheri Crafts!
The challenge for the next two weeks is: "Let It Snow"! Include a snowflake on your card/project!
Sheri picked the theme to start the new year! It's so perfect for this time of the year! I woke up to 28 degrees weather outside this morning! It has been pretty darn cold!
The image is called, "North Pole Enchantress" and she is one of Heather Valentin's digis from Lacy Sunshine!
 I had got a few new crafty things for Christmas and couldn't wait to be able to start using them! :) Stampendous, Frantage embossing powder was one of them! I think with time I will get better at using it!
Anyway, come start the new year off right by participating in the challenge this week!
Hugs, and happy crafting!
Sandy.

Delightful Challenges- Flurry The Snowman

Wow, do you believe we are only a few more weeks until Christmas! :)
Hi y'all, it's time for another Delightful Challenges! This week the challenge is; "Bundle Up" (Winter Theme)!
I thought I would do something a little bit different this week on my card! I opened the back to stand! I also used my Brayer to create the background!
I am using Flurry The Snowman from Digital Delights By Louby Loo!

I didn't know it, but if you order Flurry the Snowman in JPEG form, he doesn't come with all the detailing on the scarf, hat, and coat! I was totally fine with it though because I always like adding a little bit of detailing myself! He will look like this if you order him in PNG form! He is cute either way! :)
Counting down until Christmas! If you are in need of some cute digis to finish off making those Christmas cards, Digital Delights by Louby Loo really has some really cute images! Go check it out here! Come participate this week also! :)
Hugs, and happy crafting!
Sandy.
