Crafters of Faith

I must change my moniker.....instead of "Speedy", I am reinventing myself as "The Procraftinator" once again!

I have known the them for this month's challenge, thought about my project, and planned it my head! LOL

We were to use blue and water this month.

Aha! Wouldn't a D. Morgan stamp work great?? ...yeppers! I used From Far Away and colored in with Spectrum Noir Markers and chalks. To complete my project (I like to think of it as bathroom art), I painted two pieces of cardboard white using a foam brush. I kept brush strokes on it, then added some blue chalk and a hint of yellow to the frame which I cut out of the cardboard. I added three rolled flowers with green leaves I cut out of some ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by! Make sure you stop by the other Crafters of Faith blogs!

Cute and Cuddly

The Calendar Girls (check my sidebar for the links) are at it again!

Theme this month was supplied by Linda, the wonderful Linda!! She is wanting to check out all things cute and cuddly!

I went with Mr. Riley the Moose, who although I don't think would be cuddly IRL, is amazingly cute!! Our own CG, Kelly, is on the DT for Riley and Company; and I decided to play along with their current challenge (a summer activity and use yellow). I also went for a CAS approach, using the current sketch, #38, from CAS(E) this Sketch.

So, without further card:

Thanks for stopping by!

deets....all CS by Carta Bella, stamp from Riley and Co., Memento Rich Cocoa ink and assorted Spectrum Noir markers, sentiment from amuse.

Cool Creations

Debbie was our hostess this month and sent a brilliant kit! It contained:
DP & Ribbon: Ice Cream Parlor by Stampin' Up!
Image: Good Ol' Summertime by Stampin' Up!
Paper Straw: A Muse
Buttons & Flowers: SU! and Michael's or Joanns
Craftworkcards Candi – pink dots

I love summer! Love lemonade, in fact! And ice cream and frozen yogurt.....smoothies...yep, I love it all!

I have to admit to be going through a frozen yogurt stage at the moment! {it could be because a new store front just opened and the toppings are endless and they switch out the self serve yogurt every couple of weeks!}

Here is my card:

Make sure to check out the entire duel....the links are on my sidebar!
