At "Besties" Challenge Blog this week they have asked for everyone who participates not to use patterned paper!
I racked my brains out trying to come up with something I could do without using it! The first thing that came to mind was to use Spellbinders Fancy Lattice! I just love that die! The image I used is one of Sherri Baldy's Besties! I just think she is such a sweetie! I love her long hair!
Anyway, Hugs, and happy crafting!

"It's A Bling Thing"

This week at Lacy Sunshine Challenge is to add bling! I don't know if you can see it, but I used sugar coated vanilla card stock on the leaves so they are pretty glittery! Plus, I added two gems to the swirls just to finish it off!
The digi I used is Annie Sweet Urchin! She is one of Lacey Sunshine's digis! I just love her whimsical expression! I love the paper I used, so pretty much I let the paper do the talking here!

We could either make a fall, or a Thanksgiving project for this week at My Sheri Crafts! I chose to make a fall card!
This Magnolia screamed fall to me! Probably because of the wonderful background image I found online to go with her! Plus the little added broom, basket, and leaves! I absolutely love how this card turned out! :)
I am trying to get the hang of making clouds right now! I haven't at all mastered them yet, but I keep trying!
Anyway, go check out what the rest of my DT sisters have made at MSC!

Christmas in Pink or Silver

This happened to be a very hard challenge for me! I am a very traditional girl when it comes to Christmas! Being asked to use anything but the traditional reds, greens, or even blue, I tend to freeze!
I absolutely love seeing these colors on Christmas cards, I just have a hard time using them!
I am not sure what the name of this Sherri Baldy image is?!?!

Let It Snow

I truly am loving spending time in my craft room making Christmas cards! :)
I used Sherri Baldy "Besties", Big Eye Big Head Dolls IMG100010! The weather is starting to cool off here where I live! It makes it easier to start thinking Christmas!
I added trees to the bottom of the card, but the picture turned out dark! I couldn't seem to get a better picture of it either! Anyway...
