It is time for a new Thankful Thursday Challenger over at DL.ART.  This time the theme is Patriotic-you can always substitute a thank you card.  Have you checked out the DL.ART Store  Diana has so many fun buttons and bundles.  I used Strawberry Grape from the Strawberry Grape-Milk Chocolate Bundle and  Lavender from Spring Bundle 1.  Diana generously gives my readers a 10% discount-just use the code k34510 at checkout.
This time I decided to make a Thank You card.  Some of my friends gave me donations for Operation Christmas Child  I wanted to send them a Thank you card. I began with a "Anna Griffin Butterfly Layout" available on Cricut Access/  The sentiment is also Anna Griffin.  All of the papers are DCWV. I made a big bow using both Lavender (Spring Bundle #1) and Strawberry Grape (Strawberry Grape-Milk Chocolate Bundle)
I hope to you join this challenge.  Visit the DL.ART Blog to see what Diana and her team designed for this Challenge
I am submitting this to the FCCB SPARKLE Challenge

Good Morning.  It is the beginning of a new month that means its time for  the DL.ART ANYTHING GOES NOVEMBER LINKY CHALLENGE.  There are so many fun products in the DL.ART store.  I love all of the buttons and ribbon bundles. For this challenge I used Mocha from the Coffee House Bundle 2 and Steel Blue from the Blues bundle. Diana gives my readers a 10% discount-just use the code k34510 at checkout.  
Heart felt Creations has the cutest Pampered Puppy stamp set.  I colored in the image using Marvy markers.  Then I cut it out with a Spellbinders Die. The Back ground paper is Paper Studio.  I wrapped the Mocha ribbon around the bottom of the card and added a Steel Blue bow that I secured with brown and white twine.
Be sure to stop by the DL.ART blog to see what Diana and the design team members created for this challenge.  I can't wait to see your projects.

Hello.  It is time for a brand new challenge over at DL.ART.  The theme is Sparkle and Ribbon.  Diana has the most gorgeous bundles of ribbon.  Be sure to check out the great collections of ribbon and buttons at the DL.ART store.  For my project I used Crown from the Gold bundle.  I love this shade of gold, and Chalk from the Newspaper Bundle.  Diana offers my readers a 10% discount-just use the code k34510 at checkout.
For this challenge I made a 50th anniversary party.  The patterned paper and the jewel are from the party invitation.  I cut the heart and the 50 using Cricut Design space.  The pearl swirls are from  my stash.  I mounted the main matt on to some DCWV gold foil card stock, then onto some Quartz sparkly cardstock by Paper Studio.  I threaded the Chalk and Crown ribbons thru the Starfish, then adhered the whole thing to a 5X7 card base.
I can't wait to see your "Sparkle and Ribbon" projects.  Of course you can always enter a Thank You card.  Be sure to stop by DL.ART for inspiration

My husband is Japanese and we eat a lot of sushi.  When I saw this Lawn Fawn "Lets Roll" stamp set, I had to have it. The sentiments are great.  I used "Arigato" which means Thank you and "Soy Happy for you",  I began by stmping lots of images on Canson Water Color paper.  Then I swiped some Marvy markers on to my palette and water colored them.  I fussy cut all of the images and mounted them on the card front.  The papers are Basic Grey "Konnichiwa"

Art impressions are having a Stamp a Scene Challenge.  For this card I decided to a use the Cottage and Die set.I began by stamping the image with Marvy Sepia.  I die cut the widow and door.  Then I watercolored the image using Marvy Markers.  Then I made an A2 card out of Watercolor paper.  I drew around the cottage, cut out the door and window and created an outdoor scene using WC Flower Set 2, the tree is from the  Covered Bridge Set.  The grass and foilage are from WC Foilage set 1.  After I finished the background I adhered the cottage to the front of the card.  Then I stamped and watercolored the inside image using the Make a Wish Set
