Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 29 – Add a Door or Window

Hello everyone,

I had to think long and hard with this one.  I have a porch on the front of my house with a picture window and when I thought about it I thought it would be nice to recreate my dream front porch.  I so enjoy sitting on the porch on a warm summer evening and looking out into the front garden.

Since this week the blog challenge at Cheery Lynn is to use a Door or Window, this was my perfect opportunity.  I absolutely LOVE the new Cheery Lynn window dies but I must admit, I have struggled with using them.  I was determined to find a way.  I seem to always be inclined to look “outside the box” no pun intended 🙂  although I love their intended purposes.  Another one of my favorite Cheery Lynn Design Dies is the picket fence die.  I have used this die for so many projects in the past and once again it was my “go-to” favorite.  I thought it was perfect to make a garden bench and with a little perseverance I was able to make it work.

I love flowers, arbors and swings (actually, I love anything to do with the garden)  so here is what I was able to come up with:

For this project I used:

Cheery Lynn Window A

Cheery Lynn Victorian Picket Fence

Cheery Lynn Flourish Leaf Strip

Cheery Lynn Cuties 3

Cheery Lynn Princess Tree

Cheery Lynn Exotic Butterfly Small

Cheery Lynn Small Angel Wing

I also wanted to send kudos to the DT for such wonderful inspiration this week.

Thanks so much for popping by.  Hope to see you again soon.

JustRite Friday Challenge #073 – “Anything But Square”

Hi everyone,

Sorry I have been away for a while.  I have been working on a big project that I will be able to announce shortly and I have finally finished it!!

Tonight I wanted to create an entry for this weeks JustRite Friday Challenge #073 – “Anything But Square” Challenge.  I so enjoyed the inspiration from the Design Team.  They always do such a fantastic job.

The challenge this week was to create a shaped card in any shape as long as it is not square.

I wanted to create a special gift for a friend to thank her for everything she has done for me.  The last time she was over she admired a dish that I used for some snacks so in addition to the thank you card, I also wanted to recreate the dish as well.  As a bonus, I will fill it with her favorite chocolate  🙂

Here is a picture of the dish I was talking about:

And here is my version:

I really hope she likes it 🙂

Thank you for visiting my blog and have a great evening,

JustRite Friday Challenge #072

Good evening ladies,

Tonight I want to enter a challenge that I really enjoyed doing.  The challenge is the JustRite Friday Challenge #072.

The challenge this week is to create a 3D project that is either a gift item or something for the home.  Sheri has created a wonderful project for inspiration.

I was watching something on TV (can’t even remember what) and they were talking about the Queen of England.

What a lovely hat ……………. why don’t I make one?  Better yet, make it a box so you can put sweets inside!

Well, I did.  I once again have to give a thumbs up to my Sure-Cuts-A-Lot software.  Without it I would truly be lost.

Here it is:

Thank you for visiting my blog and have a great day,
