A Few to Share Today

Brenda was the hostess for the Stampin B's this week.  She challenged us to make a card using navy, green, and either stripes, dots, or ? (I forget the other choice).  I used this fab Penny Black image and kept my card pretty simple.  The pearl stick pin is available from Mark's Finest Papers.

We are very excited on the B's this week as we are welcoming two fabulous stampers to our group.  Anne (jdmommy) Harmon is joining us this week.  Pam (Pam124) Lawver will be joining us next week.  Welcome to both of you!!!!  I look forward to your dazzling work!!!

To see the fabulous creations of the DT for this challenge you can go to the Stampin B's Blog or you can use the links on my sidebar to get to the individual members' blogs or galleries.

Cindy is our hostess for the CCEE Stampers' Challenge for the month of April.  She challenged us to create a card using doilies or lace.  I had this new doily die so, of course, I went with that!  I used this image from Verve as my main image.  I successfully used rhinestone flourishes for the first time. ( I usually ruin them.)  After taking the photo I realized I should have used a different ribbon, but just left it with my fav polka dotted one for now.  Will probably replace it before sending it out to someone.

Now be sure to go visit the CCEE Stampers' Blog.  My guess would be that you will see some fabulously feminine cards with the lace and doilies.  Remember you can always use the links on my sidebar to get to the individual blogs or galleries of team members.

Roxie gave us a great sketch on SCS yesterday.  This was the card I created using an image from QKR Stampede digital images and a sentiment from SU.

Wishing you a fabulous day full of sunshine and warmth ....that is what I am hoping for!!!

I just had to laugh. I wonder why you forgot the other choice on my challenge. Whew! Bad week for me. LOL
Your little bunny is too cute in the flower pot. Love the sheer ribbon and stick pin.
I saw that doily die used somewhere else today and it is just so beautiful. On the list it goes. Ugh!
The last card is adorable, too. I am looking for an Easter bonnet just like that one.

Love lace doiley, so very pretty, showcasing the flowers with the wonderful dotted ribbon. The bunny card is so cute and I really like the bright colors you chose for it.

You know what? Sometimes Blogger really ticks me off. I just finished typing a really long comment to cover all three of your cards, hit Post Comment, received a Blogger error message, and it wiped out my comment! Ugh! That ever happen to you? Well, let me see if I can remember what I wrote.

Your adorable bunny in the flower pot is just that: adorable! Great use of those colors.

Your doily card is absolutely STUNNING and BEAUTIFUL!!! I love that doily die in black; it's absolutely striking against the pink and pretty dp. Kudos to you, too, on successfully using your rhinestones!

And, who wouldn't fall in love with that sweet face on your sketch challenge card? She is so cute, and I love the green gingham dp in your design with the pink.

You really know how to bring everything together so perfectly in everything you create.

Wow, you've been busy, Joanne! I love your cards, all of them...but especially the bunny one...such a sweet image, and your black doily is just stunning, and the third is adorable in gingham!! Fabulous stuff there, friend!
Hope your lil puppy is feeling much better, too!

Girl, you've been going to town creating all this goodness!! I love that sweet bunny peeking outta the pot!! And your doily is....well....nothing short of stunning!! Love the beautiful flowers in the center too!! Your last bunny looks like she's sportin' a 'tude!! LOVE it!! Spectacular work my friend!!

Ohhhhhhhh, these are SWEEEEET! The pansy bunny image you used on the first one is one of my favorite PB stamps from the newest release...that bunny just melts my heart. The second card is so stunning with the black accents against the pink, and I love that ornery look on the bunny's face in the third card...looks like she's holding her hand against the wall behind her to "hide" something she doesn't want us to see. :)

I have no idea if you go back abd read your post..
If you do I love your Doily.
I watched a viedo on them.. they are very cool.. My question is it plastic or metal die?
He ran it thru the big shot several times to get it all cut though..
