TEXTURED CARDS FOR SEPTEMBER CHALLENGE ON A CREATIVE NEED

FUNKY TEXTURED CARD FOR A TRUE FRIEND



Hello to all,

Yes, I have been a busy the past months. I am writing more, exercising more, reading more, even went out on labor day week-end to see more whales and yes I have been eating more....what? Well that is another topic alltogether. :) 
I just love Deena's september challenge this month (as always) it's all about textures and patterns. Whoo, did I have fun with this one. I added a little textured frame for my sentiment that has been on my craft table for a while, so I'm happy I did and it makes imy card look even funkyer!

If you all want to play along come here to  a creative need challenge blog and just go where your whimsical self will take you. I did and it felt soooo good.

There are some images to be won and of course a beautiful gallery to admire.

I did use  Jen Cochran (Fattire7) card as inspiration for mine, in honor of her becoming the new hostess for the QUEEN FOR THE DAY challenge as our sweet Trish is retiring. Thank you both for your commitment and I hope I can play along as often as possible.

Have a beautiful week-end will see you all in blogland.

TRAVELING THIS SUMMER A CREATIVE NEED CHALLENGE #21



Hello to all,

I am so glad I could join this week in the A creative need challenge. My printer was out because we had a power outage a few weeks back and my sweet son was out of town and could not help with the solution. See, unlike him, I wasn't born with a computer mouse in my hand. How does that song go again...times, they are a changing. :)

Anywho, this week is still about vacations, holidays, traveling and we also are planning on traveling too, but don't know exactly when though. But traveling is part of a good summer holiday for alot of us and when you do, drive safe and be sure to have good sing along songs they seem to make the trips shorter somehow.

Join us all won't you, we always enjoy your company at
A CREATIVE NEED .

Thank you for stopping by, Peggyxo

A DAY FOR DAISIES GETTING CRAFTY & QUEEN FOR THE DAY ON SPLITCOASTSTAMPERS



Hello to all, 

Today I have two cards for two different challenges. My story is this: Above is the second card I created for A DAY FOR DAISIES challenge and getting all KRAFT-Y it is.
Using kraft colors or papers on your project. I really just used my little imagination to make up the sentiment by hand and my little shabby/distressed tearing and little embellies to spruce up the funny kind of blending I did for the little baby geese. :) Still, I kind of like it.


So this was my first card for both of the challenges as I used this week's QUEEN FOR THE DAY NANCY'S CUTE CARD (stiz2003) as inspiration for mine. Although, I forgot all about using kraft papers and colors for A DAY FOR DAISIES, hence two cards for the price of one. :) 
You have to love her (me) right.
I am happy I played QUEEN FOR THE DAY , it's been so long. Glad to send some love Nancy's way in honoring her beautiful work.
Hope you have a beautiful day, I know I am off to my other day job and that is writing.

Hugs, Peggyxo

JUNE CHALLENGE WITH A CREATIVE NEED ANYTHING GOES

Hello everyone,

I am so happy to show these 2 cards I created for the A CREATIVE NEED CHALLENGE for JUNE. Deena is suggesting we use one of her images and  it's anything goes as for our project.

Mine is coffee girl, she is my favorite.

So why don't you join us in the fun, there are always beautiful images for the selected winner.

SPECIAL NOTE: For this month only, Deena thought that if you used one of her images in your project you automatically get an image. Cool idea.

Always fun to see you have stopped by.

Hugs, Peggy

SWEET SKETCH SPECIAL FOR DAD'S DAY


Good day to all,

Today, I tried Karen's SWEET SUNDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE, I am one who needs guidance in my layout always. So this week she is having a little rest along with the team. She did invite us to choose one of our favortie sketch and play along anyway. I thought that a great idea, so I just played along.

I used Sketch 159, it is different but that's the whole idea behind the challenge right.
I'm glad  I played, hope you enjoy!

CASEING ARIELLE


Good day to all,

This week on A DAY FOR DAISIES CHALLENGE, 
we had to case someone's card, so I used 
Arielle's inspiration card shown here:



The changes I have made are in the shape of the card, added the writing on the bottom and 
pierced the bottom corner.
 Instead of using a button, I stapled my embellishment. 
I also used some embossing to soften the scene. 
Hope you like it.Make sure you swing by her blog, it's an amazing blog to surf if you want to go: OOOH AND AAAH alot. Well thank you for stopping by, it's always fun to see you did.

Kindly, Peggy
