Guest Designing for Crafty Catz


 Happy Friday Friends!

 I'm so excited to share the news that I have been asked to Guest Design today for the Crafty Catz Challenge Blog.  I was lucky enough to be the winner over on their blog last month with THIS CARD.

The theme this time around is of course Anything Goes but with an option of DREAMING OF SUMMER and the sponsor is The Paper Shelter.


 For my creation, I have used The Paper Shelter 'Having a Good Time' digital stamps. 
Isn't he ADORABLE?

 Having a Good Time! - Digital Stamp

 I have created my scene using Word10 and printed onto 4x6 glossy photo paper.  Along the edge I've die cut a strip of an old Cheery Lynn Designs 'Flower Chain Border' (B132).  I've used pop ups behind each flower and then used Nuvo Crystal Drops for the flower centers.  For my sentiment, I have used an OLD stamp from  'The Stamp Pad Co.' and it was stamped using India Ink since I was stamping onto glossy paper.


The background image is set for a square card but I sized it to fit onto my A6 card.  These digital images are FABULOUS and so much fun to create with ... be sure to check 'em out!

 Once again I'd like to thank Aunty Sue for asking me to Guest Design for Crafty Catz!  Be sure to pop over to see what the DT has created ... awesome fun!  Of course then why not come join in the challenge fun ... who knows, YOU might be their next winner!!

 Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Stay safe & healthy ... PLEASE WEAR YOUR MASK!

 As always . . .

  7. Dear Darlene
    As soon as I saw your card happy memories of snow white and seven dwarfs came to my mind. I used to read the story and imagine that I was snow white.
