Die Cut Diva's say goodbye March

Can you believe its the last day of March? I probably should be wearing rain boots right now-we've had so much rain that I can't work in my yard because of all the mud!

We want to thank our wonderful sponsors for the month-

Here is my project-

 I used MFT Stitched Rectangles (You can also use Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Rectangles), Spellbinders Daisy Toppers (or Sue Wilsons Delicate Daisies). The image is Bugaboo's Ava Flower Patch, which is colored with Prismacolor pencils. The button is Studio G, the yellow dots are Stickles, and the sentiment is from Stampendous. Paper is from my stash, so source is unknown.

Thanks for visiting!

FCCB & Farm Animals

Welcome to another Challenge Me Monday...

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #273 Farm Animals

This Weeks Sponsor

 Winner will receive a $25.00 Gift Certificate to Verve Stamps

Make a card or projects using animals you find on a farm.

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

Here is my project:

I found a great tip in some of the tutorials for the Cricut Explore-when you are looking for an image, if you click on the round circle with the italic "i" in it-it will tell you what cartridge the image came from. Handy to know, huh?

Here are the materials I used:
  1. Cricut: barn (Create a Critter), Bull (Noah's ABC Animals) Cloud (Bits & Pieces). All images were cut from scrap stash.
  2. Embossing folders: Clouds (Darice) Swiss Dots (Cuttlebug).
  3. Stamp: Sassy Bessie set (Unity Stamp Co.)
  4. Pen: Uniball white pen.  
  5. Ink: Versafine Onyx, Colorbox White Frost.  
Enter a project for a chance to win Verve stamps!

Die Cut Diva's Spring Challenge

This month Die Cut Diva's are sponsored by:

and by

This beautiful image from Bugaboo Stamps is called Rose Tag, and is colored with Copic markers. I used Labels Fifteen by Spellbinders (But this die by Bo-Bunny would work just as well) to frame the image, and used Fancy Labels Two by Spellbinders for the sentiment. The stamp set is one I got when I first got into stamping many moons ago, before I learned to write on the plastic who made them! I used white scrap cardstock for the sentiment, and Creative Memories paper for the background. The bow was made with Offray sheer ribbon.

My mom passed away last year, and lavender roses were some of her favorite. For you, Mom.

Thanks so much for visiting!

I'm also entering this at Catch the bug Anything Goes Challenge.
