Thinking About You!!!

Well it's that time again everyone for a new and exciting Challenge going on over at Digi Darla's Challenge Blog!!This time the theme is Thinking About You! And some more exciting news is that Floppy Latte's Digital Designs is our sponsor for this week.. So this week your card has to be either from  Digi Darla!! or one from Floppy Latte!! Can't wait to see what every one comes up with...
So here are my cards that I done for Floppy Latte and Digi Darla! The first card is from Digi Darla called "LOVING ARMS"!
I used and A2 size card and used a scrap for the front of the card can't remember where it came from, The image was colored with Prisma colored pencils and distressed around the edges, The sentiment is from Digi Darla's and thought it was perfect for this Digi (LOVING ARMS). This card could actually be also used for a beautiful Mother's Day Card.. 
I also distressed the sentiment to give is some color and add a ribbon from Off Ray, I love there glittery ribbons. Added some bling I got from Recollections, The beautiful flower is one of the many that me and Dawn made with her punch set... My flower stash is getting low gonna have to make some more they were so much fun to make... This card is going to someone special who is having a very rough time right now!!
On to my second card it is from Floppy Latte's called (CLOWN DOLL).

This adorable little clown was colored with prisma colored pencils, and blended with sansdor...
I used another A2 card and the paper came from my stash embossed it with my cuddle bug folder called Large Petals. I did some more distressing on the card and on the sentiment. On the card I used "Worn Lipstick" by Tim Holtz and on the sentiment I used "Aged Mahogany" I added some stickles to the Clown Doll's hat and shirt buttons, and a rhinestone from recollections for his nose, and then added some colored Google eyes, since clowns always have these cute little painted up faces!!
Also added a couple of parrot birds, since when I think of clowns, I think of carnivals and zoo's
Thanks for all the wonderful comments and hope you enjoy these cards as much as I did making them!!!
Have a Wonderful and Blessed Day!!!

Simple Pleasures!! (CDACPC#16NV)

It's CDAC-PC # 16 time again! An this time I decided to use the Beautiful Bird Cage by Nana Vic, I Loved this image but at first couldn't figure out what to do with it and then it hit, It's a Bird Cage, so that is what i used it for.. The paper is from Basic Grey paper pack Blush called Cherish. Thought it was very appropriate for the image..Colored the image with Prisma colored Pencils, then colored a little blue bird and fussy cut him, put him on the image so it looked like he was in cage.. Then added a sentiment from my stash, and a glitter flower and a few rhinestones to add some bling!! So here is my card for the Simple Pleasures in life!!!

Origami Diamond Fold Card Tutorial!!!

 1.  Cut Paper 11x11. Use pattern paper it works much better than card stock, cause card stock is too thick.

Lay paper on score board with pattern side down, if you have double sided what ever side you want show goes down on score board using guides on top and the left, fold in half diagonally. Burnish edge with score tool.

2. Line up folded edge of paper to the top of score board at 3" and 5.5" score paper, flip paper and do the same on the other side. Press firmly with score tool.

3. Line up you paper with the point facing the left edge of the score board, the folded edge evenly on the right using the scorer marks to make sure paper is straight.

Score a line at the pointed end of your paper all the way down at the 3.5" line.

4. At corners you will see small triangles on each side, cut these out.

This is what it looks like with both small triangles cut out on each side........
Now open the card and add tape to the edges, Don't put any tape on the left side diamond, it has to stay open so top of card fold will go down in it like an envelope lid.
Now fold it back together, and make and origami fold on each side, Place your finger inside of the 2 layers on the right and using thumb push paper up to create a diamond shape. Repeat on the left side. Burnish edges of the diamond.

Now decorate and fold card.. Cut digi  2x2 to go on each diamond and finish decorating how ever you want to decorate your card!!!

Update! Wedding and Doctors

    Hey Everyone!!!! Going to be in and out a lot the next few weeks... My son is getting married in 3 weeks ( MAY 5th)  and we still have a lot of  arrangements to make and things to do.. So I am going to be quite busy with all that!!! But I will be checking my computer every evening to make sure I stay on track, I go to Dr's tomorrow to find out results of my MRI on my back! Wish me luck... If you don't see a comment from me on stuff right away I will be checking my Computer late in the evenings... So excited about the weekly challenge after this one!! Love my Son to death and would do anything in the world for him... But will be glad when wedding is over, Maybe things will calm down a little then for me... LOL! Not to sure about it though, My soon to be Daughter in law and I typed up their wedding vows tonight and then she got to talking about grand kids!! I think she is just scared because she has some health issue's and is afraid that they will not be able to have kids..And she told me tonight that she knew i wanted to be a grandma some day.. Told her that when it comes to the point and time, that she may not be able to have kids. That there are plenty out there in the world that need someone to love and take care of them..
Thanks guys!!
