Paper Hugs and Die Cut Dreams

Guess what???

I am the July Guest Designer over at Heart Hugs for the ETSY INSPIRED CHALLENGE!! Woooo Hoooo! Yay me!!! Anyway - enough of that! LOL
Let me show you my card - and I was even able to pile on the challenges!



  • Obviously - First and Foremost - Heart Hugs Etsy Inspired Challenge. This week's shop is called Which Goose. Everything is flowery! So although they have real looking elegant pieces, that's just not me. So I translated flowers into "Vicki Flowers" and this is what I cam up with.
  • 365 Cards - I am actually going to get two out of this one for 365 - which I don't normally do, but....there hasn't been a lot of time making cards lately, so....#124 - Something Digital - the blue daisy paper is digital. It comes from a shop called Funky Fairies and #126 - Red, White & Blue
  • Paper Play asked for flowers -the challenge is actually called Paper Roses. The flowers CANNOT be purchased - you had to make them. Mine is made from a QK die.
  • Color Chef #12 asked for Red, White & Blue
  • Three Clovers asked for Red, White & Blue
  • ABC - U is for - USA - again, to me, this translates into Red, White & Blue
  • Cuttlebug Spot - Celebrate Your Country. Now I know one of these CB challenge blogs requires you to use your Cuttlebug - and I did. I just happened to have been to cut out my QK flower! LOL :)
  • Crafty Creations asked for Celebrations! Now this card being what it is - it could be used for many different occasions.
  • Flutterby Wednesday #64 - open challenge - just use a butterfly
  • The Pink Elephant - Favorite Color Combo - this is my second card for them this week - both using Red, White & Blue. Also, although it doesn't really count, this was their sketch last week, so I figured I should not that too!! Loved it - just didn't have time to play it til now.
And that's all for this one! Thanks for stopping by!
