I made a card using an image from All Dressed Up. I absolutely love this image! She is called Pretty Bonnet. Isn't she just wonderful!
I actually used a stamping technique to make the background. This is where I got the idea from. It really is a terrific technique. 
I used Alt & New Vintage Flowers stamp set. I colored everything with my Copics. The clouds were made by using Stampabilities, light blue ink pad.
It really didn't take all that long to make and yet I really am pleased on the results. :)

Scrapbook Stamp Society- Shaker Card

Hello my crafting friends,

Today for Scrapbook Stamp Society, I decided to share a shaker card that I made using Fancy Pants Bloomin Besties img179.
I have never made a shaker card before so this is my first time making one. A good friend of mine sent me a shaker card for Christmas. The plastic part looked like it had been sewn so I asked her what she did, or used to make it. She used a fuse tool. I had never heard of it before so I went to YouTube. Here is a link if you are like me and have no clue on what it is. The link you will find here.
So, I went and bought the fuse tool and decided to give it a try. I have to say, it is really easy to use and holds what ever you put inside extremely well. :)
Thank you Larelyn for the tip on the fuse tool!
Hugs, and happy crafting.
Sandy.

Supplies:
Spellbinders- Scalloped Squares
Impression Obsession- DIE096-D (grass)
Nellie Snellen- Heart Fence
Martha Stewart- Pine, and Branch 2
Copics, Sequins, and Flowers

My Besties International Challenge- Anything Goes- Option Flowers Are Bloomin

Today starts a new challenge at My Besties International. The challenge runs through April 27th.
The challenge is "Anything Goes" with an option- Flowers Are Bloomin. You get more chance to win if you go with the option. So lets see some flowers on your projects. :)
This cute little image is Scan0118. She is from Giggle Box Dolls called, Bloommin Besties.
I had just gotten the bunny butt die cut and couldn't wait to use it. When I saw this Besties girl in a pot, I thought it would be perfect. The bunny's behind is just so big that I wanted to have it's rear end stuck in a fence. :)
We would love if you would come and participate in the challenges. There is great Besties images to be won. :)
Hope to see you there!
Hugs, and happy crafting.
Sandy.

Lil Patch of Crafty Friends

At Lil Patch of Crafty Friends, the next challenge has started.
They have two sponsors:
** Sponsor 1 **
Fred She Said Designs
 Prize ~ $10 Gift Certificate
And
** Sponsor 2 **
Prize ~ $12 Gift Certificate
I was fortunate to be able to pick an image from Fred She Said Designs
The cool thing about this image is that it comes with so many pieces to it.
I can change out the words at any given time to fit the need. :) They left one blank as well, so you can fill it in if need be. I love images like this!
This card is one of those cards where I didn't have to much supplies I used on it. I used two different Paper Studios papers. One called Blue and Brown Plaid, and the other is called Tiny Polka-Lime Tonal. I colored it in with my Copics. The star came from Spellbinders, Stars Five. I just finished the card off by using a white gel pen to go around part of the frame.
That's about it.
I hope you come participate this challenge.
Hugs, and happy crafting.
Sandy.
