Are you ready for a Tiffany Doodles Challenge?

7 Feb

Late post here.  Sorry, I have been at WORK all morning.    There is a new Tiffany Doodles challenge for you starting today and there are a few changes to note.  First, the challenge will last for two weeks.  Second, we want to encourage you to use your Tiffany Doodles images — a $10 voucher for the Tiffany Doodles store is up for grabs for a project using a Tiffany Doodles image. 

 An additional $5 voucher is up for grabs for any other entries (TD image or non-TD image).

So our challenge to you is to create a Valentine’s or love themed project.  Tiffany has some fabulous digis in the store that will work perfectly for this.  For my post today, I have made 3 different cards with the same stamp.  I use the digi stamp called STAINED GLASS HEART.

Here is my 1st card:

This was a joint collaboration with my 12 year old daughter.  I told her to color it in any color scheme she wanted.  After she colored the base, I added the glitters and the lacquers.  I think it turned out GREAT!!

 

Card #2 is just a “TOTALLY ME” card.  I love everything about it.  I used my new dies called Wittle Weavers from Cheery Lynn Designs, to create the base of this card. 

 

There are actually so many steps to making this card, I will not bore you with all the detail.  You can just look and enjoy it and know that I did indeed put A LOT of work into it!

 

Since I called my last card a ” TOTALLY ME” card, I guess I need to call this next one the “TOTALLY MINE!” card.

A lot of us on the Tiffany Doodles team think Mr. Bon Jovi is great eye candy, so this card is for ALL OF US!!

I hope you have enjoyed my Valentine’s today!

Make sure you check out the other fabulous DT creations.

HAVE A NICE DAY!!

A lost tradition, found.

14 Dec

Before my mom passed away, she used to buy all my kids a Christmas ornament for the current year. As my number of children got higher in numbers, she still carried this tradition on. For awhile, she handmade each one, customizing them to the grandchild’s current likes in life. I have acorn angels, popsicle stick Santa’s, Pooh Bears, Blues Clues and Baby’s 1st Christmas ornaments for almost all my kids. She also added to my ornament stash every year. While she was alive, I got a new ornament from the earliest time I can remember, she did this for me.

As I was thinking of what to make this week, the thought hit me that my youngest 2 children will not have the privilege of receiving that special ornament from Curly Grandma each year.  So, I need to start, or restart, this tradition for them. When they are older, I will be sure to tell them where this tradition started, when it ended and when it started again.

I only had time to make 2 ornaments to show, but I will be making more for the rest of my children.

Believe it or not, I only used 1 die set. The set I used was: Scalloped Oval – LST103

I took an idea from one of those fancy magazines, no one can afford to buy from.  They had these lovely paper ornaments.  So, I used their idea for my own.  The main body, of the ornaments are made out of vintage piano books that I had lying around.  They had already started to yellow, so I did not need to do much distressing 🙂

Here is the ornament I made for my youngest, my princess, my joy…yep, I LOVE HER~

 

This next one, I had to make just because I wanted to see if I could.  If one of my older daughters loves it as much as I do, she can have it be her 2010 ornament.  If not, it is MINE!!!
Again, I only used the Scalloped Oval dies on this.  Made all from the same vintage sheet music and embellished with supplies I had on hand.


These were somewhat time consuming, but well worth it.  Part therapy, part mom love.  I think I will enjoy doing this for my kids every year.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my Christmas Pretties.

Be sure to go over to The Cheery Lynn blog to see my other team mates creations.

Well, while most of you are probably getting your beauty sleep, I was putting the finishing touches on a card that was a custom request.

A friend needed a card for a specific need and this post is for her.  So what do you think?
