Speedy's and the Crazies....It Must Be Saturday!!!


The Crazy4Challenges has a sponsor this week.....a  fabulous company with a great sense of humor, which is a good thing, as our challenge this week is to have humor involved on your card.  I used the newly released set, Cowgirl Dottie, from Totally Stamapalicious.  She is a rootin' tootin' western brawd with some real sass!!!  AND.....I actually succeeded at cutting her out....my peepers are being nice to me at the moment....lol!!!!

Be sure to stop in at the Crazies Blog.  You are sure to be amused AND inspired!!!!
For the Speedy's Friends Challenge this week, we were to make a card/project that was tone on tone.  I used my Bearded Iris set from Mark's Finest Papers to create my card.  I used an MS punch for my border and added some rhinestones.  AND......tah dah........I, cutwork challenged as I am....I actually cut out this iris and was happy about the results.  Always nice when something is a success which is usually a failure.

Be sure to check out the Speedy's post to see the outstanding work of this fabulous team.

Both of these cards are eligible for Our Creative Corner Challenge which was to frame it.

I love how this turned out. Great job adding the rhinestones to the edge of that scalloped paper. It really adds to the elegance, doesn't it?
