Feeling Spoilt - All Dressed Up New Release

Hi there and welcome to the All Dressed Up March release.  Wendy has given us four new gorgeous images to work with this month and my card is made with Feeling Spoilt.  This leggy gal along with the other three new ones are available now in the All Dressed Up Etsy store.
Be sure to pop by the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog where you can see gorgeous makes by the rest of the design team.  While there, why not enter the challenge?  It's always Anything Goes and the only requirement is that you use an All Dressed Up image.  There is also a Facebook fan page and a monthly challenge there as well.
My photo is a tad crooked... got a new camera and am still trying to figure it out.  I was having an awful time with the old one because the pictures seemed to look so faded so we'll give this one a whirl and hopefully it works out.
Happily, winter is on it's way out here in Saskatchewan Canada and I'll be so happy to see the hind end of it as it leaves.  It's been a very mild winter with very little snow and the temps have been quite mild.  So funny, as soon as we get a day with the temperature above freezing, I see all kinds of people at the mall wearing shorts!  I would be frozen... and what gives me to giggling is that in the fall when we have the first cool day with the same temp, everyone is commenting on how cold it is.  Spring is my favourite time of the year and although we can still have a couple months of winter weather, I know it's not going to last much longer.
Thanks for popping by and have a great week!

Delivery Fairy - A Day for Daisies

Today is the start of a new challenge at Making Memories Crafting and the theme is 'Add Some Layers' so unless you are doing a CAS project, this should be an easy one to follow along.  Our generous sponsors are A Day for Daisies and The Cutting Cafe.  I chose to use the Cute Delivery Fairy from ADFD for my card.
I kept my card fairly simple because I am still trying to familiarize myself with the new craft space.  It's getting easier to remember where I put things, but every time I sit down to make a card, it's like someone sneaked in during the night and moved and hid my 'stuff'.   Sadly, that 'someone' is me. hahhahah.... I do think once I have everything moved to where I want it, this craft space is going to be much better than what I had, simply because it's so much bigger.
Do pop on over to  Making Memories Crafting and check out the gorgeousness the girls on the team put together for this challenge.
Thanks for stopping by.

Love Heart - All Dressed Up

It's time for a revisit the February release at All Dressed Up. There are four new and gorgeous images for this release.  I was lucky enough to be given Love Heart to use.
Even though this is not the kind of image I usually pick but I'm really quite pleased with this card.  I am still struggling to find some things in my craft room because I haven't got it all sorted yet and am at a loss as to where my sequins went.  They were what I originally intended as an embellishment but they aren't visible right now and I get too distracted when I begin looking through boxes.  I forget what I initially went looking for and then start putting a few things away, looking for where I put the rest of 'these things' and well... you know the drill.  I have the attention span of a pea sometimes.
Pop on over to the blog to check out the new images, see what the DT has come up with and while you are there, why not enter the monthly challenge?  As always, the theme is Anything Goes but you must use an All Dressed Up image.  Wendy has some adorable freebies here and you can buy any of her art at the Etsy Store.  You can also join the Facebook group where there's lots of chatter, a challenge and mega talent.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Just Married - Blackberry Jelly

After a long break from card making because of our big move, I am finally back!  Not the most organized yet but I am back.

For Challenge #2, the theme is Valentine/Use Some Red and our sponsor is Blackberry Jelly. The image I chose is called Just Married.

Party Season - All Dressed Up

Welcome back for a revisit the November release at All Dressed Up. There are four brand new and seriously cute images for this release and I was lucky enough to be given Party Season to use.
Love, love, love these gorgeous leggy girls Wendy is known for.  These three little beauties are all decked out and off to enjoy a great night out with friends.  This is a great image set because you can use them all together like I have or each girl as a single image.
I kept this cards super simple and the only decoration is three little brads.  Part of the reasoning for this is that I am mega rushed at the moment and secondly, my craft room is a mess and I cannot find a flippin' thing!
Pop on over to the blog to check out the new images, see what the Dt has come up with and while you are there, why not enter the monthly challenge?  As always, the theme is Anything Goes but you must use an All Dressed Up image.  Wendy has some adorable freebies here and you can buy any of her art at the Etsy Store.  You can also join the Facebook group where there's lots of chatter, a challenge and mega talent.

Z is for Zebra - All Dressed UP

Time for a new challenge over on the All Dressed Up blog.  For my project, I've used the adorable Z is For Zebra which is the perfect image for a baby card.  I've liked this little critter since I first saw it so thought it might be a good time to get ahead with those baby cards.

Have a Magical Evening - All Dressed Up

It's time for another revisit the October release at All Dressed Up and for my card, I've used the cute Have a Magical Evening.  Very difficult to be too afraid of this little witch because she's simply not scary at all.
This card began with all the great intentions in the world but it was one of those that just about hit the garbage can several times and the only reason it did not is because I was pressed for time.  I ended up with a major dark smear of ink when distressing the corners so I tried to fix it by adding some glitter which turned out to be an even bigger fiasco than the ink.  In the end, I managed to 'erase' the glitter (thank goodness for those glue erasers) and then tried to disguise the mess with brads.  I'm not the greatest with a camera but the orange on here is really bright whereas on the card, it's a nice soft orange.  Oh well, after all is said and done and in the end the card is ok and I chalk it up to 'creating another opportunity'.
Anyway, there were four fabulous images released this month so pop on over to the blog to check them out and while you are there, why not enter the monthly challenge?  As always, the theme is Anything Goes but you must use an All Dressed Up image.  Wendy has some adorable freebies here and you can buy any of her art at the Etsy Store.  You can also join the Facebook group where there's lots of chatter, a challenge and mega talent.

Time to Shine - All Dressed Up

Hi there and I hope you are well.  All is good here and it's beginning to look a little bit like winter with the early snowfall we just received.  I don't mind it but I'm hoping it doesn't stay - winter is way too long when it arrives this early.   Our new home renos are getting close to being finished.  The painting is done for the most part with just a few touch ups left.  Cupboards in, counter tops on, sink & taps finished too.  It will feel good when it's finally finished but this has just about done us in.  The work hasn't been major repair or even that difficult but we work at home all week and then head to the new place for the weekend so we seem to be continually busy.  Okay, enough about that...
Time for a new challenge over on the All Dressed Up blog.  I've used the adorable Time to Shine sweetie.  I do love those All Dressed Up images but I have to say, the little ballerinas are my fave.
As always, the theme is Anything Goes but you must use an All Dressed Up image.  If you want to participate but don't have one of the images (really??), Wendy has some adorable freebies here and you can buy any of her art at the Etsy Store.  The challenge winner will receive 3 images of their choice and one of the top three will be invited guest design for the next challenge.  You can also join the Facebook group where there's lots of chatter, a challenge and mega talent.
