Squigglefly Anniversay cards

Hello! I have made a couple of Anniversary cards-I try to keep up with the cards that the lady at Church needs to have, to send out - I have used: SMELL THE FLOWERS by Michelle Bertuzzi from Squigglefly. I love this set-there is so many things you can make with it-it comes with several sentiments as well, but I used an SU stamp for these two. I have made another card with it as well, but you have to come back on Monday for the Squigglefly Challenge to see that one! You still have time to enter this weeks challenge which is Anything Goes! Easy Peasy!

I also wanted to let you know how excited I am about something----it is Awesome, Exciting, Fun-and you do not want to miss out! ONE A DAY IN MAY--from SQUIGGLEFLY! What is that, you ask? Well, you can  sign up for it beginning in April-it is $31 and then in May--every day for 31 days you will get a new digi to download--that is only $1 per digi!! Unbeatable-and so much fun-it is like Christmas in May!!
Have a great day-

Monday Madness Imagine That Sketch Challenge

HI all! This card I have made for Emma's Monday Madness-Imagine that Sketch Challenge. The challenge this week was to use your print only on the Imagine, and follow the sketch. So, I printed the music note paper off of the Imagine More Cart, in the shape. and then cut it out by hand. I printed the blue off of Enjoy the Seasons Cart, in a shape and again cut it out by hand. I used my Stamping up punch for the loops. A flower, some ribbon and one of Emma's Teeny Tag Greeting Stamps used for the sentiment-finishes up the card.
Well, I just got several goodies that I ordered from My Creative Time-in the mail today-so I am off to play and Create! Have a great day!

My Creative time-Link up PAR-TEA

To find the Fresh Brewed Blog Hop go HERE.

Hi all! I received my new MY CREATIVE TIME's stamps this weekend! Two of which were from Emma's brand new release-and she is having a link up PAR-TEA! Here is my card-I stamped up several of the background stamps from the set -COFFEE BREAK and punched out several of the die-cuts as well.(they are included in the stamp set) I also used the other stamp set I got-YOU ARE PERK-FECT to use for the sentiment, and added the steam from another of the stamps from the same set-and stickled them up to make them sparkly.

Fresh Brewed Blog Hop-new rubber release! March 17,18,and 19th

Hi all!

Welcome to FBD's March Rubber Stamp release and blog hop! If you are getting here from Gale's blog then you are right on track! If not, please start off at our artist and designers blog Heather's Coffee Break.

All around the country, it may seem like our calendars are deceiving us. It is only March but there is the growing feeling that SPRING IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER! Here at Fresh Brewed Designs we are getting spring fever!  We are itching to bring out our bicycles, picnic baskets, spring decor and walking shoes so we can fully enjoy the unseasonably warm weather. Our Rubber Stamp Release for March is celebrating all of this as well. We are getting ready for planting gardens,  watching butterflies fluttering about, listening to bumblebees buzzing all around and hearing birds singing. We are celebrating all of the NEW things spring brings. Some of us like to decorate for spring holidays.  Others will be welcoming someone to the neighborhood or welcoming home a new little one. Whatever it is you are celebrating this spring, Fresh Brewed Designs has a stamp to help you create for it!

The new releases this month include Gardening Granny, Come and Knock on my Door, and Wreath Girl. They are each unique and so versatile! Our lovely door can be decorated for any of your needs. New home, new baby, Christmas, Easter, Halloween... you name it! Same goes for our lovely Wreath Girl. Granny is so fun and can be used for anything from serious to humorous. I love her funky style don't you?
I chose to create with Gardening Granny for this release-I just think she is perfect for many different kinds of cards-remember the Grace and Daniels Garden images I used HERE--what a perfect trio they make! I cut the veggies out on my cricut--colored Granny up with copics and used a sentiment again from My Creative Times-Teeny Tag Greetings.

Heather has another special deal for you this month. You can get this package deal during the hop for only $18!!!
The package includes all three just released stamps, one die cut and embossed piece of  Papertrey Inc card stock,  two 4x6 sheets of the double sided embossed i do Viburnums by American Craft paper , two 4x6 sheets of the double sided Heidi Grace Purple Houses paper, 10 clear dew drops, a variety of 6 buttons, 5 purple fabric flowers, and 4 feet of each color of twine. PLUS remember with each stamp you purchase you will get a bonus badge! Collect 5 bonus badges to earn a FREE STAMP!
Head on over to Fresh Brewed Designs to grab yours while they last!
Now, hop on over to Vanessa's blog to see what they have prepared for you! (and wish her good luck n her 10k run this weekend!!)

Since we are talking about spring, we always know that there's always a chance for a spring shower
Just in case blogger decides to make mud puddles or cause us any trouble  during your hopping enjoyment,
we are attaching the hop order so you are able to SPRING right on through.

I hope to get back again real soon!

Squigglefly and Throwback Thursday-Cricut-Less Challenge

Hi all- wow my second post for today! This card was made for two different challenges:
1. Squigglefly Challenge- make your card wobble
2. Throwback Thursday-Cricut - less challenge with Emma. (My Creative Time)

I have used this adorable little kitty--a digi image from Squigglefly-called LOVE ENVELOPE KITTEN by artist Louise Gardner. I colored her up with my copics and layered the envelope and little paws with the Action Wobble to make the letter wobble! I have added a little video for you to see it in ACTION! Heehee-get it? Action Wobble....
The sentiment that I used is from My Creative Times-Teeny Tag Greetings.

Hope you have a great weekend, in case I don't get back before then!

Monday Madness-Imagine that challenge with Emma

Emma over at My Creative Time has a couple of challenges going on...this card is for the Monday Madness-Imagine That challenge which was to use TEAL, RED, and Pink.
I used Best Friends for this, and cut and printed the image -then cut the image twice more and colored with my Copics around the edges for the pink and red. I doodled around the edges and used my Martha Steward punch for the curly q's. I also used a puffies to look like the sun.
For my sentiment I used -Happy Spring - from My Creative Times set called Teeny Tag Greetings, which comes with a die cut as well (which I did not use today). I just recently bought this set and can see I am going to get to use it often--there are so many great sentiments with this set! Have a great day!

Squigglefly Challenge #9-Make your card WOBBLE!

Well it is once again Monday and I have a new Squigglefly Challenge for you--make sure to check out all the great inspiration that Rhonda's Rowdy Rascals has made for you, at the Squigglefly challenge Blog!

This challenge is to make an  image on your card/scrapbook page WOBBLE! You can use the Action Wobbles or devise a way on your own to make it wobble!
 I have used one of the new images just released this last Saturday: Welcome to Home Sweet Home by artist Jackie Mathews (btw-have you checked the Squigglefly site out yet?-so many new images once again!).
Doesn't that make a fun way to send out some address change cards!!

Our weather here has been very weird this winter-up til now we have had much less snow than usual! Until this last weekend, that is! I don't how many inches(ft) we got over the past couple days, but a whole bunch is for sure!! Here are a couple pics of some of the surrounding trees--they are so laden with snow-it is very beautiful-but lots of folks have been without power! Our power went off for an hour or so this afternoon, and I was worried about getting the posts done for this and the Squigglefly Challenge blog done, but luckily it came back on!

We hope you will play along with our challenge! Have a great week!
