Challenge # 657 - Something fishy going on


It´s Wednesday and time for a brand new Challenge.

 Doni here and my theme for you this week is " Something fishy going on".

This just means that I would like to see a fish somewhere on your project.

Here's what I did:


I totally fell in love with this designer paper I found in my stash.

It made the perfect underwater scene for my little fishies.

The bubbles are the best part...here you can see how they sparkle:


If you would like more inspiration, check out what the Girlfriends have made. 
 Then head on back here and link up your project. I can't wait to see all your fishes!

Congratulations

Hi! 

This week at Little Red Wagon for Challenge #656

Chrissy wants us to use our lace.

First I had to search through my sewing stuff to find some lace.

This is what I finally ended up making with it:


 

 I didn't put anything on the inside yet.  

It's pretty basic, so it could be used for a lot of different occasions.

I used some embossed specialty paper from my stash, a Congratulations die from

Simon Says Stamp and of course...lace!

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Easter

Hi! 

This week at Little Red Wagon for Challenge #650 

Chrissy's topic is Easter...what did you make for Easter?

Other than food, which was really good, I made this Easter card.

                                   Too late to send out for this year but I'm one ahead for next year!

I used a stamp from Art Impressions called Bunny & Egg.

The sentiment came from a stamp by Lawn Fawn called Eggstra Special Easter.

The background was blended using Distress Inks - mowed lawn and tumbled glass.


Thanks so much for stopping by, if you really want to make my day, leave me a comment.

Even if it's just to say hi!

 

'till next time,

Doni

Easter

Hi!

This morning I'm playing along with the Easter Challenge over at Double D Challenges.


 

 I love making shaker cards.

I used the nested eggs die from Simon Says Stamp. 

That made the egg shaped border really easy to do!

The cute little bunny embellishment has been in my stash forever...so glad I finally got to use it!

Thanks for looking.

Birthday Fishes

 
Hi! Today I'm playing along with the Featured Stamper Challenge
over at SplitCoast Stampers.

 First I blended some distress ink and splattered it with water for the background.
Then I used the Horizontal snow drifts cover from My Favorite Things
 to add the curvy black lines.
Next came the stamps from Rubbernecker called fish group
and the words and the top fish from a stamp set by Simon Says Stamp called Best Fishes.
This was a fun card to make...even though I have no idea what I'm going to do on the inside!

Thanks for looking.

Pockets

The theme for the challenge over at Double D Challenges is Pockets.

Well, I have lots of stamps, but none with any pockets...then I thought of my Kangaroo and Kangaroos have pockets!  Then my mind went to the TV commercial where the girl asks "what's in your wallet?"

This is what I ended up with!

                        The Kangaroo on the paper Smooches stamp does not have anything in her pocket.

So I found a picture in free clip art ...cut out the baby kangaroo, cut along the Momma's pocket line with an craft knife and inserted the baby. 

                         Even though this is not what you normally think of when you hear pocket, 

                                            I hope it meets the challenge requirements.


Thanks for looking,

Winter bird

 Today I'm playing along with The Way To Use It Challenge at SplitCoast Stampers.


Haven't decided what to put on the inside. I'm thinking it could just a note card to stay in touch with someone or it could say Happy winter birthday in the inside.

Whatever!....hey, at least I got the front done :)
