A warm hello to all. This weeks Cheery Lynn Designs challenge is "Anything Goes". I started by embossing the background with the Clocks Embossing Plate. This really gives a nice texture. I then cut both pieces from the Alpine Flourish Doily die set and placed one at the top and one at the bottom. I added a vintage photo to the top doily and added some pearls to the bottom doily. The flower is the beautiful Shasta Daisy with leaves from the Flourish Leaf Strip. The sentiment Cherish was placed at the top. I love the black and with  just a touch of color. This doily set is so elegant. I hope you will find the time to join our challenge at I would love to see your creations.

Sparkle and Shine

Hello Here is my card I created for the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge " Sparkle and Shine".  The photo does not show it but it is a 3D effect to this card with  the Santa and sleigh being the front layer and the Winter Neighbourhood Border set back. The front of the card bows out. I used a pattern paper to give the effect of a dark sky with stars. I then layered the  Winter Neighbourhood Border on to it. I hand cut some snow banks and layered to the back of the Madrid Flourishes Rectangle Boutique Stacker then placed the Santa's Sleigh and Reindeer on the snow banks.  I used the Merry Christmas w Tree Sentiment to add to the three corners. I hope you will join our challenge @

Tis The Season

 Here I am with another challenge card for  Cheery Lynn Designs. The theme this week for their challenge is "Tis The Season". I started by cutting the
Joy To The World Wreath  three times and layering them to make nice full branches. I then cut the Christmas Candlelight. Using the Pine Branches  and Wreath Strip  I added a lot of greenery to it. The Poinsettia #2 made a beautiful focal point in front of the candles. I placed the sentiment  from the Joy To The World Wreath  at the top corner.  I just love the look of all the layers of branches that the CLD dies give this card. I hope you will come to and play along in our challenge for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree.  Happy Crafting.

Non Traditional Colors

A warm Hello to you. For this weeks challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs I have done a card following the "Non Traditional Colors" theme. I started with a white base and then cut two of the Snowflake Mesh Border and placed them side by side to give the card front a embossed look. The Icicle Border goes across the top of  the card. I place the snowman image and the tucked the Snowflake Doily behind them a bit. I used the wing from the snowflake doily to cut a black background for it to make the snowflake pop. I also added a black matt and then a white matt as well.  I stacked some styrofoam snowballs in the bottom corner. A bit of glitter to the snowflake and snowballs finished it off nicely. Please come join our challenge @  for you chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree.

Tag Your It

Hello This week at Cheery Lynn Designs we are doing a challenge with the theme "Tag Your It". So here is the tag I created to share with you. I started with a christmas pattern paper and cut it out with the Horizon Coved Rectangle  Stacker Frame so that the lantern was in the bottom corner. I then layered that one onto the Coved Rectangle-Classic LG Stackers. I assemble a couple of poinsettia's from the Poinsettia Strip and added to the bottom. Pieces of the  Holly Lace Flourish  were added behind the poinsettia's.  The  Horizon Fishtail Banners  was placed across the top with the sentiment  for you. Now it is your turn. Please come join the fun
@ for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree.
