Hello All,

 Hope everyone had a great Hot Holiday - WOW to early in the year for me.  I have been very busy creating a baby album for my friend Pam and almost forgot the Challenge - So here goes


http://www.atjoansgardens.com/2012/05/this-weeks-challenge_24.html


We have been making so many beautiful flowers and the new dies from "Cheery Lynn" that are coming out will take flower making to a whole new level so for this card I stepped back -
My circle flower is from Tim Holtz layered resting a top one of my favorite flourishes from DiNamics.
Butterfly is Spellbinders LF006 from black card stock with frosted vellum back I used my craft wire for the antenna. Martha Stewart punch for the edging on white card stock that was embossed with Sizzix Music folder.  Kaiser white pearls. Sorry my batteries ran out but I added on the inside lower right corner of the card a silhouette of a bride and groom.

Hello All,

    I have been thanking about the chicken that Joan mentioned in this weeks challenge and I was talking to my grand kids about it and they thought I should do something funny.  So as time is running out this is what I did and they laughed so hard I thought I would share it with you. just for fun.

The car is Tim Holtz die card was stamped with a chicken wire fence (it was in my no name stash)
the chickens are "Inky Antics" stamp, Rocks are "Stamps by Judith" and the flowers and grass are a
"Stampland" stamp. Feathers hum not plucked by me I got them from a bag-LOL I used TH new markers for yellow  and stickles for chickens. Hope this made you smile.http://www.atjoansgardens.com/2012/05/this-weeks-challenge.html

Hello All,

   Time again for Joan's and Selma's challenge #17 - Vintage


http://www.atjoansgardens.com/2012/05/this-weeks-challenge.html

The back ground is rather hard to see because it is shinny (DCWV Luxury Pack-)
Green and white. I did a distressed edge to age the paper -next layer is my stamped back ground
using a Stampland rubber stamp. I used vintage photo Ranger distressed ink on a tan piece of card stock.
The die cut is from Die-Namics dies from Joan's. The hat is made from purple scraps I had on hand from
a basic gray pile of older papers. The hat and stand was cut from Cricut Heritage cartridge. Purple and white feathers. Added another purple feather, small flowers, butterfly and ribbon for embellishments.
