Hi! I hope everyone has had a great start to their weekend. Yesterday was very rainy but it looks like the sun is coming out today. Woo hoo! I have had a great beginning to my weekend. My computer is back!! I no longer am borrowing someone elses. I am giddy with excitement to have it back after a month! My colors on my computer are so much more vibrant and I can click into my own files. It was so hard to see if the dullness of the photos I took were my photography or the computer I was using.

Today two new releases are available at Our Daily Bread Designs: Jesus and Happy Birthday! They are such awesome sets. The Happy Birthday set has such wonderful verses and sentiments appropriate for a birthday and it has flowers and butterflies. I made a card with it today for the new release!

I used the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge, WT228 Charm Me,
DTGD09bevmom- Sew Unexpected, DTGD09genie1314- Tag Art, DTGD09blondie090277- paper tole, DTGD09Becca_stamps- Cut it out with punches and dies, DTGD09-Spread you Wings, DTGD09Craftycaro- Anything but Average, and DTGD09lauraly- Tie One On, DTGD09DeborahLynnes- Taken with Texture, DTGD09krystielee- Clearly Creative. There are so many awesome challenges listed for Dare to get Dirty in Splitcoast Stampers. I still have a few more to try! It is definitely a fun perk for being a fan club member!! Today's challenge is purple at OCCC! This card fits perfectly for it!

I had so much coloring this image and adding flower soft. I think it makes the image come alive somehow. The paper is from the new Basic Grey Lemonade line. I just love the flower from Prima Windsor Roses that ODBD carries in their store. For this card I used the Hampton set.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- Happy Birthday
Paper: Basic Grey Lemonade, Rich Razzleberry,
Embellishments: Clear Rhinestones, Jumbo brad, gold cording, Rich Razzleberry Ribbon from SU, Dark pink Flowersoft, Flowersoft Glue, Prima Hampton Windsor Roses , Heart Charm
Tools: Cuttlebug Textile Embossing Folder, Oval Nestabilities, EK Success Fleur De Lis Punch

The design team made more sneak peeks for you using these new releases. Please swing by Angie, Angella, Connie, Silke, Deb, Wendy, Loretta, Jane, Judy, Lorelie, Sandee, and Betty's blogs.

I hope you have a great day!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Sooo very pretty, Chris!! Such a wonderful use of the sketch! I really love how the spout of the watering can comes off the tag! That flower soft is just so pretty too!! I am so lovin' that stuff! Makes the flowers you used it on look like bottle brush flowers!

Amy Johnson said...

wow! Beautiful card! I think I'm in love with this new ODBD Set. I love all the detail you put into this card. Its breath-taking. Good luck with the design call too--I read your post below about it. It seems like everyone is trying out for this team! I would love to try out for it, but I don't have any of their images. I know you don't need to use their images, but I think I won't be taken as seriously if I don't.
