Craving Sweets!

I created this card for the current Lawnscaping Challenge.  Finally, I created something that matched what I had envisioned in my head. I guess I'm getting better at planning!

The deer is having "sweet" thoughts of cupcakes, ice cream, and s'mores.  Hey, who doesn't?  Unfortunately he only has veggies to eat.  I used the following sets from My favorite company, Lawn Fawn:  Party Animals, Rooting for You, A Birdie Told Me, Baked With Love, Into the Woods, Love You S'more, Best Pun Ever, Bake Me a Cake, and Stitched Hillside Border dies.  Whew!  As you can see, it's very easy to combine Lawn Fawn sets.  I'm entering this card into Lawnscaping Challenge #126/Sweets

I'm working on taking better photographs.  The sun is not a common appearance in Washington, at least at this time of year!  Thank you for visiting my blog. It's greatly appreciated!!!

Stinkin' Hot

I created a card to enter into the current Lawnscaping Challenge.  I wanted to use the adorable skunk from Lawn Fawn's Stinkin' Cute, but didn't have a solid plan in mind. I knew I needed to use mostly black and white with a splash of color, so that's where the night sky came to mind.  It all evolved from there.  I find that my cards usually do NOT end up the way I had envisioned them!  Anyway, I used the following sets from Lawn Fawn:  Starry Backdrops, Love You S'more, Stinkin' Cute, Milo's ABCs, as well as the tree and stitched hillside border dies.  The night sky was created by blending Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire, Hickory Smoke, and Black Soot distress inks.  I also added the Black Soot to the front hillside to get a darker hue since I didn't have a dark gray card stock that worked.  The skunk and campfire were colored with Copics.

I will be entering this card into Lawnscape Challenge #125 Color Splash

Thank you for visiting my little ol' blog.  Have a great day!!
