Hi Everyone, my DT post today is for 

Our sponsor for this challenge is the wonderful
Drawn by Krista 
"Krista's first love has always been drawing. Ever since her father gave her the book "The Art of Disney," back when she was a kid. She was lucky enough to live her dream and work as an Animator for over 15 years. 10 years of which was at Walt Disney Feature Animation Florida, up until the studio closed in 2004. Since that time she and her husband settled in the midwest with their two beautifully spirited children. Krista began a new career in illustration and design. And so, DRAWN by Krista was born."

A Greeting

Hi Everyone, today my card is for the Outlawz sketch challenge. One I like to participate in as it's always a challenge to use the sketches.

This time I used a sentiment instead of an image, quite a change for me. I stamped it in black, but it was too stark, so stamped it with the aid of my stamping platform a few times in pink on top of the black, I think it worked?

Anyhow, this is my card.

pearls - stash

sentiment - stamp free from magazine

Hi Everyone, my DT post for

"Little boys"? with so many men in the family, I consider ALL of them to be little boys at heart, hence this will go to one, for a gift I have in mind. I didn't know what to do and didn't feel enough mojo to make a card, BUT, to play with the Cameo? oh! YES! I went looking for a "toy" and found this wonderful tractor for "free". I cut it out on the Cameo and hubby and son LOVED it and had a laugh "like little boys". It's a gift box and it will hold without effort 3 mini Mars bars. It will take 2 larger bars even though I have made it slightly smaller to fit the card I used. I hope you like it too. I just HAD to take the piccies on the lawn.
