CYP #164-Au Naturale ;-)

Happy Memorial Day!  I hope you have a fun holiday and please take some time to honor loved ones and (of course) past and present heroes.

This week's theme at Craft Your Passion is
Natural Embellishments
Use something natural.  I didn't think my basket weave paper would cut it, so I added some hemp to my card:

The image is from this week's sponsor, DRS Designs.  I love this image.  It makes me think of fishing on the lake with my dad.  Can't wait to see what you come up with this week.  Be sure to leave the DT some love.  The girls did a fabulous job this week, didn't they?!

OWH Memorial Day Bloghop!

Happy Memorial Day weekend!  Hope you are having a fun few days.   I know that I'll be busy all weekend looking at the fun things on this hop.

My card uses OWH Sketch #22.

The paper is by Basic Grey and the stamps by My Favorite Things.  I had to ask my westerns-loving hubby to make sure "much obliged" means "thank you".  Phew!  It does!

Thanks for stopping by.  I'd love to hear from you, so leave a quick comment and then click HERE to get back to the hop.  Ciao!

CYP #163-Party Animals

Happy Monday!  This week's challenge at Craft Your Passion is
Party Animals
Make a celebration card with an animal on it.  Here's my take:

I used an old Deconstructing Sketches Sketch and (of course) stamps from The Alley Way Stamps.  Can't wait to see your party animals.

CYP #162-Playtime

This week's challenge at Craft Your Passion is
Children at Play
Your project needs to follow the theme of children playing.  Maybe it's a good time to have the little one help you with your project this week.

This little card was nearly the end of me.  I wanted to decorate the box that I store my paints in.  But after a family crisis, I was frantically trying to get this done on time.  Then the image was bigger than the box!  And the adhesive wouldn't hold.  And I cut my only sheet of paper wrong.  And... anyways, I ended up with a very simple card.  But I do like the paper and the adorable image is from this week's sponsor.  Be sure you join the fun at Craft Your Passion.  Hope it goes better for you than me this time. ;-)

CYP #161-Floral Delights

Whew, what a crazy week it's been!  I'm glad I was able to unwind and color this weekend.  This week's Craft Your Passion challenge theme is
Floral Delights
Use flowers on your project, but you need to go beyond just flowers in the image.  Does adding flowers to the image count?  I hope so, cuz that's what I did!

Join the fun at Craft Your Passion this week!
