Thank You

Hello. Today I am going to share with you a card I created for the Cheery Lynn Design challenge. The theme this week is "Anything Goes". I started this thank you card using the Royal Scandinavian Border Set  to make a frame. I then layered the largest size of Lords and Commons Boutique Stacker A2 Frame set onto the A2 Frames Rectangle Classic. A smaller size from the Lords and Commons Boutique Stacker was layered on top with the sentiment Thank You #2 place in the center of it. Last I added the Sunflower and Mini Fanciful Flourish  to the bottom corner. I really like that the new border set makes a nice frame. Please come join our challenge @ for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree. Have a crafty week and I will see you next week with another challenge.

A warm hello to you. Today I am sharing with you the card I created for the Cheery Lynn Design Challenge. The theme this week is "Sweethearts". Cheery Lynn has several heart dies which are just gorgeous. I used the  Heart to Heart Doily set for the biggest heart. I then I used my favorite which is the Heartland America Doily to layer on top. A few butterflies from the  Mini Butterflies w/Wings was added to the top corner. For the bottom two corners I used the Tiny Fanciful Flourish Left and Right set. Last I placed the sentiment Love across the tiny heart design. That's it for this week . I hope you can find the time to join our challenge at for your chance to win a $20.00 store credit.

Hi I am back  with you today sharing a card  I made for the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge. The theme is snowflakes. I started by placing the Lords and Commons Stacker Frame on a purple base. I then stacked two different sizes of the Horizon Circle Stacker Frame. One by one I stacked three snowflakes. First on the bottom was the Snowflake 2. In the middle is the Snowflake 5 and then the top is one of the snowflakes from the Snowflakes  Set 2. The Horizon Fishtail Banners  with warm wishes printed on it was placed along the top. I liked the addition of the two stamped images of winter clothing to go with this theme. Please come and join our challenge

Happy Easter

What a great day today. Cheery Lynn Designs has release some fantastic new dies today. Our design team has been busy and has several cards created with them @ for  your inspiration and for you to enjoy. Now for todays card I started with an embossed base. I embossed it with the  Foliage Embossing Plate and inked it up a bit to make the foliage pop. I cut the Spring Basket 1 and the Spring Basket 1 with Angel Wing and placed the  new Chicks in it. I then added one of the new Bunnies to the basket with the chicks.  I place the other new bunny and chick nose to nose in the corner chatting. I used one of the pieces of the Say What set to type the sentiment {What's up with the chocolate bunny and chicks} in . How cute is that. I used the Grass Border along the front. They look so cute in the tall grass. The new sentiment Happy Easter was double layered in two different colors and placed at the top.  I will be back sunday with another card using more of the new dies so check back then to see it. Don't forget our White on White challenge is still on until tomorrow if you would like to join for a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree.

Winter Whites

Hi I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday season and wishing you all the best for 2015. This weeks challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs is "Winter Whites". I stacked three different layers for the base. First the Rectangle Scalloped Large Purple Stackers, second the Madrid Flourishes Rectangle Boutique Stacker Frame and last the Horizon Oval Boutique Stacker Frames. With foam squares in between each layer it gives it lots of depth. I added the Ivy Corner Flourish to the top corner with a layered Tea Rose Medium  for the flower. The photo image of the birds really makes this white card striking. Now it is your turn so please come join the challenge @ I would love to see your creation.

Thank You

A warm welcome to everyone. This week at Cheery Lynn Designs is the "Thank You" Challenge. I started with a barn board paper as my base and added two different sizes of the  Horizon  Square Boutique Stacker Frame. I cut the smaller one from a bird image paper and off set it so it was a diamond shape. I used the Pretty Pretty Bows  die across the bottom to place the Thank and You sentiment on instead of making it into a bow. I placed the  Whistle a Happy Tune  along one side the bird and some of the Add a Flourish  and a butterfly from the Small Exotic Butterflies #1 with Angel Wings along the other side . I used  some flowers from the Tiny Flower Kit  to place here and there adding bling to the center of them. Well that it for this week. I hope you will come join our challenge @

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.
