PTT Challenge

It's Anything Goes on the Party Time Tuesdays Challenge blog.  This week the design team used some cute images from our sponsor  Stamp Fairy. I used adorable Spring Barry to make my card...

I love this little bear image. He's perfect for cheering up a friend or just to say "Hello".
Be sure to check out what the rest of the Party Planners created. Then join in the fun. Anything goes!!

Tic Tac Toe...

Three in a row! That's the challenge at Party Time Tuesdays this week. Here's the Tic Tac Toe card...
I used the items down the middle. Here's my card using rhinestones and black pearls on the front ...
 and twine inside!
The image, Brew Your Coffee,  is from Paper Pretties. I used stickers from SRM to decorate the front. Inside I used a sticker and a small glassine bag also from SRM to make a holder for the gift card, from Starbucks, of course!

Color/Photo Challenge

It's time for the April Color/Photo Challenge over on Party Time Tuesdays challenge blog. Here's the inspiration...
Here's my project...

I used the English Teacup image from one of our sponsors, Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps & More, to make a thank you card. I attached the sentiment with some twine to make it look like a teabag. Like my stitching? It's stickers from another one of this week's sponsors, SRM Stickers. Click here to check out projects by the rest of the DT and join in the fun.

A Beachy Treat

My granddaughters stay with us at our condo at the beach every summer. I always have a treat for them when they arrive. When they were little it was easy...a new Barbie or My Little Pony or small toy or stuffed animal. Now they are 10 and it's a little more challenging. They love to go to the Boardwalk and to the Arcades. For Party Time Tuesdays Anything But a Card Challenge, I decided to make a tag and treat box that will hold some money and a roll of quarters so they can have a fun time playing games and eating junk food on the Boardwalk!

For my beachy tag and treat box I used Daisy Flip Flop image from Oak Pond Creations and a clear pillow box and stickers from SRM, two of this week's challenge sponsors. I tore Kraft paper for the sand, punched and stamped blue cardstock for the water. I glued them onto Confetti Cream cardstock, making it larger than the die. Then I cut through all the layers with the die. I printed the Daisy Flip Flops image on patterned paper and colored on it with Copics. The sentiment and cute pennants are stickers. I inserted some beachy patterned paper inside the clear treat box and added some ribbon and twine. I only made one so I need to make another one with purple flip flops for my other granddaughter. When you have twins in the family you get used to doing everything x 2 but you also get twice the hugs and kisses as thank yous!

I've entered my project in Oak Pond Creations' Birthday Bash Challenge. Check here for details and join the fun. You might win a fabulous prize!
