"None Of Us Are Perfect"

Today while checking on my favorite Saturday challenges I noticed Crafting With Dragonflies was doing a DT Call/Challenge.  One of my favorite things about this DT is that they get to use any image in their files.  I have so many images but don't get to use them since I'm so frequently using the ones I need to use for my other design teams.  I'm glad there are sponsors, however, I am also glad when I get to play with any image...

For this design team call they are having us use a hand drawn dragonfly and a sweet story to go with it, that goes with the title of my post.  I love the stained glass look, it works so well with the glitter gel pens.  Because I wanted this dragonfly to stand out, I kept the background part of the card lighter, but still versatile enough to have the colorful butterfly added to it.  I went with pink, black and gold.  I used a new die I recently got from Wish.com.  I added some ribbon and some tiny gems.  I added a little bit of Glossy Accents on the center of the dragonfly.

Sad but true to life

I totally love this sentiment, laughed so hard...Makes me giggle ever time I read it, because my mom can't laugh hard without having "tears" run down her legs..

I made another Z fold card but this time I flipped it and had the flip go to the right.  I kept it rather simple, I only added a few silver gems, a string bow and a charm.

Little Boy's Birthday

This fun card was made for the Cute As A Button Progressive Challenge.  This is Aviator.  I did this as a pull-out card.  I used some cute Carta Bella papers, added some cloud dies and some fun gems.  Not my best coloring job, but...how many lil' boys care?  LOL  Maybe the wrong attitude, but, truly!?!?!

Pretty Fun Fold

Tonight I decided to try something new to me...I don't think I've made one of these before.  I love how it opens and closes and still leaves room to leave a message, unlike some of the other fun fold cards I've made.  I used a pre-colored image and paper from The Paper Shelter.  The image is called The Lady & The Fountain.  I added gems, flowers, a porcelain bird, a stick pin I made and some pink & purple pearls.  I drew some stitching around the image.

What is really cool about this fold is that you can make two of these with one sheet of 8-1/2 x 11 cardstock. The card measures 4 x 8-1/2, the strip is 1/2 x 8-1/2.

A look through the window

I've gotten a lot of fun dies recently, and they're still arriving in my mailbox.  I've fallen in love with Wish.com!  I've purchased so many dies and still haven't gotten to how much it would cost in the store.  The only thing is having to wait for things to arrive.  LOL

This card I used the kitty cat dies I just got.  I've had the fence, tree, window dies and the flower edge punch was already in my collection.  LOL  I used a bunch of pop dots between he fence, window and the kitties.  I also added some hemp and some gems.  I chose to make the playful cat orange and the sitting cat black because that is so much like my bf's cats.  LOL
