Dustin Pike's Challenge - Red, White and Blue

Hi everyone!  Okay, I say it every time but this card was so much fun to work on.  I saw a Triple Easel Card over at .   Well I wanted to make one but I also wanted to make a Flower Pot Card.  Never trying either before I thought why not both at once.  I joined the Challenge over at Dustin Pike’s , Red White and Blue.   He has the best Challenges and images!  Go over and check his site out and enter the contest. 

     I hope Dustin does not mind but I cut the head off his free image “FB050411B” and placed it in the middle of his other image “Peeking”.  I just wanted the little guy to be looking forward. 

Here is the list of supplies:
Images – Dustin Pike’s “Peeking” and “FB050411B” plus some free wall
     paper from Whitney Caroline
Spellbinders Nestabilities Scalloped Ovals
Martha Stewart’s Punch around the page “Vintage Lace”
Card Stock – red, white and blue
Fibracolor Markers – Black, Blue, Red and Green
Offray Ribbon
Stickles “Star Dust” glitter
Dimensional Dots
Word Processor generated “Happy Birthday” and
Scotch tape to hold it together

     It lays flat to mail.  What I love is you pull the flower out and you have room now for a note on each.  I will have fun coming up with stamps and sayings for inside.  Not sure who I am sending it to, I hope they like it. 

    Leave a comment and let me know what you think!

It's a Boy Thing - Pyramid Card

     WOW!  This card was so much fun.  I have never made a Triangle or Pyramid card.  My husband calls it a Star Trek card because it looks like the insignia on their shirts.  It looks hard but is very simple to make.  I am entering this card in the "It's a boy thing" over at Dustin Pike's blog.  You should check his site out at  That is a direct link to the challenge.  You may want to make a card and enter. 

     I used three 6x6 pieces of card stock folded in half diagonally and you layer them one on the other.  I used Dustin Pike images (of course).  The images I used are basketball Dudley "BBdragon", Football Dudley "Pass", Scoccer Dudley "Firekick" and Sports Frame "SPframe".  I colored the images using Fibracolor markers 01, 07, 18, 19, 45, 46, 64, 84, 91 and 100. 

     The paper I used was light blue card stock for the card base and a wonderful green from "Blooms & Grow" paper.  Spellbinder Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Oval was used as well as Nestabilities Classic Oval.  I used McGill "Fancy label" punch for the oval words.  The outer oval I had to hand cut since I did not have a punch for it (maybe next trip to the craft store).  I used Scotch tape to hold it all together.  Words are computer generated.

     Next time I make a card like this I will make it 5x5 so it will fit in a regular envelope.  I will have to make a special one for this card and with all the card stock I will need a bit of extra postage since it is right at the limit now.  I know the postage and envelope will put it over the top.  So go and make yourself a Triangle / Pyramid card.  I promise you will love it!   

As you can see it folds flat to mail.  Leave me a comment and tell me what kind of card you made
or let me know how your Triangle / Pyramid card came out.

Panda Cake

I made this cake for my church's bake sale and cake raffle tomorrow.  First time using this mold, I think it came out really well.  Our Vacation Bible School is going to be panda themed (Pandamania) so I though I would give it a go.

Let me know what you think!  Thanks for stopping by.
