Ready for some fun?

Good morning and WELCOME!  Today is the first challenge post for the amazing designer Mary Smith and her challenge blog Createful Heartcards.  I am very humbled to be a part of this new beginning.  I think you will love Mary's designs and her husband is a designer also.  Each challenge for the for see able future is anything goes.  So lets get this party started!  But first the colors I used for this months image...

So my image this month is called sweet hearts.  It is available in Mary's ESTY shop.  Here is what I used to make my design:
SIVO Colored Pencils: (These pencils are from India and have very soft lead)
     Brown, Dk. Brown and Red
Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers
     FS1, FS2, TB4, IG2, LY2, LY3, IG4 AND DR4
3M 45 spray adhesive
Mirror paper from Dollar Tree
Blue card stock from Paper House
Printed ATOM paper from Joanns

My tools I can't live without:
Needle nosed tweezers, quilting ruler, rotary cutter, huge cutting mat and some stuff I will remember next month.

So here is this months inspiration:

See the atoms bouncing around, that is how I figured out the caption for the card.

The inside.  Sorry the picture is crooked.

That is my creation for this months challenge.  Please my friends, share my blog to your crafty friends.  Let's get the word about the new challenge that Createful Heartcards has going.  Make sure to visit Mary's Facebook page Createful Heart Digi's and Designs.

Thank you my friends for showing some love to Createful Heart.  I urge you to share the news everywhere!

Until later, bright blessings,

Super Excited!

So excited.  I was asked to be a guest designer over at Simply Crafty SVGs and also on facebook at Simply Crafty SVGs.  What a great honor.  I love the files that this site has and the owner Sandy is a fabulous designer.  Her design team is top notch.  Their examples with Simply Crafty SVGs 3D files are beautiful.  Please go on over and say hello and look around.

So for my project I wanted to make something for Bobs birthday which is in a couple of weeks.  Bob is a machinist.  We own a machine shop and he is in high demand.  So the file I chose is a 3D Tool Box.  It looks just like the 4 that we have in the shop.  This one is able to be filled with what ever you want.  It has a top section and a lower section.  I used standard cardstock and my ATG gun.  I think I will go to a candy store and look around.  Might be able to put some saltwater taffy in the bottom.  So here is how my Simply Crafty SVGs 3D Tool Box Turned out.

I hope that you will try some of the free files over on the shopping page for Simply Crafty SVGs.  I have to confess, I will be doing more 3D SVGs.  I am totally hooked.  Again, thank you for visiting and see you again soon.
