A Spoon Full of Sugar and a Sneak Peek of Showtime!

Yes, today is a two card day! Sorry if this one is a bit longer, but I have two pieces of "business"

First is my Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge card - For our Challenge this week we would like to see you create a card or project using Die cuts or Punches.

I dusted off a Hanglar image for this week. My papers are all from SEI Mimosa collection, and I just loved all the citrus colors... so I colored her in the same colors with my Copics, matted with papers from the collection. All the papers are sewed down with zig zag and straight stitches and a peach colored thread.

For my die cuts for the challenges, I pulled out my Making Memories Slice and cut out the word "friends" and the the flower, once in green and then again in the dark peach color, then layered them. After I put the card all together I didn't think you could see the word well enough so I used my white gel pen... uh oh.. don't like that but it was already very glued down - live and learn.
I hope you will join in this week... common we use die cuts and punches on our cards all the time any way - why not get in on the prize that is offered this week! Go and check it out and all the other DT cards at the Spoon Full of Sugar Blog :)
Now a drum roll for another Sneak Peek for Greeting Farm! And today it is "SHOWTIME!" How cute is this set???

There are lots of pieces to this Anya Set... but the main images are Circus Leader Anya, the elephant, the pop corn and the stars! I colored all the pieces with my Copics, I used a black glaze pen for Anya... so she would shine! I cut everything out including the sentiment "Your Turn to Shine" Then I set up the tent! I used a piece of Sassafrass Lass paper, that is all that is as the background including the scalloped bottom. I traced the scallops onto a piece of scrap red card stock for the top.
And then attached the top, with the stars stamped across it, to the card with pop dots, Anya was also attached with pop dots so she could stand out front, center ring ya know?
I doodled around everything with my white gel pen, then added gold stickles to the stars - this on really made me happy! It was so fun... again I love these Anya sets, they are so much like playing with paper dolls!
One more sneak peek tomorrow and then tomorrow night is the big BLOG HOP!!! Make sure to hop around today and see all the other great Club Anya DT sneaks... and then get ready to make your list of wants - this release has some really cute ones! LOL again ;0)
Have a great Tuesday... me I am sticking around the house today working on a few projects - FYI... Rosie is feeling much better today!
