Challenge #6 Anything Goes

Hello Hello!  So happy that you could visit.  My daughter is having Thanksgiving day dinner at her home this year.  I am so proud of her.  I thought I would make some table place cards for seating. I knew right off the bat exactly what I would create with this image. Here we go!

The image that I have chosen for this month is Pumpkin Patch Kitty.  Miss Mary, the owner and designer of Createful Hearts Digi's has sketched this adorable kitty sitting in the pumpkin patch.  What a beautiful image and a dream to color! 

So now lets see some pics (it's heavy with pics this week). 

First I figured out the dimensions of my project.   

I have used a 5 1/2" square.

I thought that this paper would be great. 
It has metallic gold leaves also.
I thought you might like seeing where I work.  This is
a butcher block tool chest that Hubby thought would
be just perfect in my craft room.  He was right!  I love
this chest.

These are place cards for daughters first Thanksgiving Dinner!
Here are min and hubby Bobs.
Here are the daughters!

This was a very fun project.  Remember to check out all of Miss Mary's Esty site.  Her (& Hubby Mark) designs are wonderful and many perfect for any occasion. 

That's it for this month.  We have a big surprise coming up so make sure to visit our Facebook page for news updates and FREE Digi's.  Please use one of the freebies and join our challenges!  Hope to see you very soon!

Bright Blessings, Jana

Createful Hearts Challenge #4

Welcome, welcome and welcome.  So very happy that you could join me.  I have a fantastic birthday card for your inspiration.  Let's get to it!

Here in Albany, where I live, for the past 25 years the city has been carving and painting carousel animals for a authentic Dentzel carousel.  Well the dream finally became real in August 2017.  I absolutely LOVE carousels.  I have been riding then all my life.  I told the story to Mary (owner and designer of Createful Hearts) and low and behold she drew a beautiful carousel horse for me to color and feature in this challenge.

So that's the background story.  To make this card I used the following:
*Neenah embossed card base
*light pink, pink and yellow squares stacked
*Misc. stickers
*Free Carousel background fussy cut
*Sivo Vivid color pencils (India)
*1/4"  round sticky jewels
*Many OTT lights
*Needle nosed tweesers
*most important Mocha Mix from Costco

I used my imagination to color the horse.  (As the only time I have been on a real horse was many moons ago)  I hope that it does represent a horse.  I fussy cut the Carousel background that I printed on my printer.  Then I put the card together.  So here is what I created!

This is the front of the beautiful Carousel card.

Here is a closeup of the stickers and round jewels

Here is the inside.

I hope that my creation gets your mojo up and running.  I try and get a boost from my design team members each week.

Thank you so much for visiting.  I will be back sharing another creation for Challenge #6.  

Bright blessings and have your best week ever!  Jana

Createful Hearts Challenge #2 ATG

Hello all!  So glad that you could join me today.  Challenge #2 is starting over at Createful Heart Cards For the time being each challenge is anything goes.  Createful Heart Cards would love for you to use one of their images (but not required) and make sure you read all the rules.

OK on to my creation.  Mary (the designer) has hand drawn this wonderful grouping of poppies.  I dislike making sympathy cards and decided to use this bouquet for the focal point.  Here is what I came up with.
The red version

The gold version

I just couldn't get a pic to show that each flower and leaf are foiled in total red or total gold.  Maybe these pics will help.

Now you can see the red and gold foil.  Foiling just adds a beautiful fancy effect.  I am sure if needed, these sympathy cards will warm the heart of the person receiving it.

I will have another beautiful creation featuring Mary's hand drawn designs in a month.  Meanwhile Team Createful Divas will show off their creative designs in 2 weeks.  

So take care my friends, bright blessings, Jana
