Well…(insert bad word) Howdy!

So….the inside of my card could say….
”Well... %@$# Howdy! …It’s your Birthday …again?!
I’m not saying it does….but it could…. Winking smile
My card today, is for the Red Challenge over at SSCC and image is the adorable Cowgirl Marci from La La Land, and…she happens to be in stock right now at StampingScrapping.

Scrappy Frogs Fruity Tooty Challenge

Good morning! I hope you’re enjoying your Monday. I’m am trying, but I have to wonder why do Monday’s have to come so fast…and Fridays seem take forever to get here. I spent a lot of time in my craft room this last weekend looking for my mojo. I’m pretty sure it was buried under a large mess on my craft table. Also, I had recently taken the Inspiration Showcase Online Card with Jennifer McGuire and was itching to get back at it. I had such fun learning new techniques and just playing. I’m hoping… it just might have been the "little blue pill” my mojo needed. Winking smile
Starting today, Scrappy Frogs is having a fruit challenge, so I was happy to be able to use one of my Papertrey Ink Stamps, Fruit Fusion Cherries along with it’s matching die. Super simple card!
Thank you so very much for visiting!

So…I’ve been having fun in my craft room with my McGill Paper Blossoms Punches again!
One of the punches that the design team will be showcasing on the McGill Blog this month is the Geranium Punch. When I think of Geraniums, I think of window boxes and planters overflowing with gorgeous flowers. My patio has lots and lots of Geranium inspiration.Unfortunately, something is making a smorgasbord out of my geraniums at the moment.
For my flowers, I punched the petals with my Mini Petals Punch and sprayed them with Glimmer Mist to add depth.
The leaves were punched with the Small Geranium Punch and inked with Distress Inks. I added the individual leaves to the punched Pine Branches.
After shaping the flowers petals, I adhered them to 1” Styrofoam balls, cut in half.
The video for the Hydrangea Flower explains in detail, the basic steps for creating a Hydrangea Flower...which are pretty much the same as the Geranium Flower …and here is a PDF for the Geranium Flower.

Scrappy Frogs Goes Vintage

Every once in a while…I make a card and cannot wait to be done with it!
Sometimes, I make a card and want to gaze lovingly at it all night long. This is one of those cards for me. In fact…I just want to be alone with this one. Winking smile
I have become a teensy bit obsessed with Papertrey Ink and if you know me, you’ll know that when I say teensy bit obsessed, what I really mean is, needs to be locked up obsessed.
Thank you so much for visiting today and be sure to stop by the Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog to see the rest of the DT inspiration.
