Catch a Bug?

This week's Designed2Delight digital image is actually a whole set - I love it and I love Glossy Accents!
Here is the inside - another sentiment that came with the image set.

Hopefully you can see better in this photo how the Glossy Accents made the jar look like glass - cool, huh?!

Angel Caroline

This week's digital image from Designed2Delight is Angel Caroline. Iwas telling a friend that I'm obsessed with entering their challenge each week - I don't want to miss out on any of their cute images!.

"Delft tile"

I found this technique on fb this morning, posted by Splitcoast Stampers, and thought I'd give it a try. Little did I know I'd have to take a trip to Joanne's to buy a background stamp! This one isn't quite right for the technique, but I'll use the stamp set for other things, I'm sure.

"50 Sucks"

Here's my completed "bouquet", suckers and all. Easter grass - what a mess!

NSSS challenge #3 - use a 6" cricut cut. This ladybug is 6"wide, not tall, but I thought the hosts might like it posted here instead of the anything goes  category if possible.

NSSS challenge #4 - Anything goes
NSSS challenge #5 - 4 pics on a LO
NSSS challenge #6 - altered item - This is for a friend's 50th birthday party next weekend. I don't want to add the suckers until closer to then; I'll also cover any open areas on top with Easter grass.
NSSS Challenge #3 - Use a cricut cut at least 6 inches

NSSS challenge #7 - A square card with a spring theme. I thought a rose was maybe pushing it for spring, but Amy says that in Texas it gets so hot so early that her roses get confused and bloom!
I was inspired by Kendra to try this technique. The rose is stamped and embossed in white on vellum. she colored hers with paints; I had to use markers as I didn't have large enough areas to paint in.Hmmm...maybe I don't have enough stamps?!
NSSS Challenge #2 - using the color combo of pink, yellow, and purple - perfect for a spring/Easter card!
Another card for Challenge #4 - Anything Goes. This card goes along with the notebook gift for a friend. I"m working on a "50 Sucks" bouquet for her party too - stay tuned!

Challenge #5 - a layout using 4 pictures - I do lots of these! this is part of a series of birthday LO's I'm working on - my son's 17th birthday in 2009. I'm just a little behind!
This is an altered composition book for my friend - I'm posting it on my NSSS group's weekend crop/challenge #6

Another sign of spring that's not quite at my house yet - this week's digital image from Designed2Delight is this pot of daffodils. I experimented with glitter and Glossy Accents on the flower pot - I like how it turned out!
