You can see my Day 1 card using Mer Ian here. The card above is from Day 2 - using Digi Charlotte - isn't she a cute little Chica?!?

Mer Ian Relay!

Yikes! I think I'm just getting this in under the wire!

The Greeting Farm is having a fun CHA relay - they gave us this free digi print of Mer Ian and you have to post a card by 6 PM CST today to move on to the next round! I just saw this at work this afternoon and luckily I live in EST zone so I have a slight chance of getting it posted by the deadline. So - without further ado - here is my Mer Ian Card.

Isn't he just the cutest little guy? I used Karen's Sweet Sunday sketch for my card. This Cosmo Cricket is just perfect isn't it - and I also added blue dew drops like underwater air bubbles! I even added a tiny little gem to Ian's little belly!

Bear Hugs for Dusty

Today the Teaparty is traveling all the way to Michigan to save little Dusty Bear from the attic and give him a new home with all his new Teaparty friends. Check out the full story here.

I'm bringing little bear Deidre who is hoping she can stay there with Dusty. She thought to bring along a few extra buttons in case Dusty needs to replace any eyes or some such thing?!

The background chevron design is a stamp from Off Beat Backgrounds by Waltzingmouse Stamps and the cute little bear is from The Greeting Farm. (Wild Things - retired set)

The Doubledog Dare Challenge on Split Coast this week from hostess Charlene was to make a card for the Teapot Tuesday challenge - so here we are - one card - two challenges! Come along and play with us! Put DDC in the keyword when you upload to SCS.

A Fancy Friend

Anne Harada (Itsapassion) was the guest host today for the Inspiration Challenge over on Split Coast. Anne was just in NYC celebrating her b'day and she visited a store called Pylones. She loved it so much - she used it's web store for us to get our inspiration from.

I came upon this fun magnetic bird in the office section and immediately thought of the pretty Vintage Birds by The Greeting Farm that I have. (The set must be retired now as I couldn't find them on their web site)And here is my inspired card - I colored the bird with my copics and cut it out. I cut one slit in the wing to put in the first paperclip - then just clipped the rest around the edge. I added the cute Library clips from Stampin Up on the tail feathers.
The panel, bird and sentiment circle are all up on foam dimensionals and I layered a small piece of Magic Mesh under the panel on the right.

I used this week's Taylored Expressions sketch for my card and polka dots which was Sharon's Stamp Simply challenge.
Hope you are all having a great weekend! I'll be posting some fun treat boxes that I'm giving to my guests at a cookout on Sunday along with home made doggie treats so be sure to check back!!

Stamps: Vintage Birds: The Greeting Farm
Paper: Apricot Appeal, Blue Bayou: SU, White, Bitty Dots Basics: PTI
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black.
Accessories: foam dimensionals, scalloped circle punch, circle punch, jewels: Taylored Expressions, glue pen, Magic Mesh, paper clips, Library clips: SU, Copics: Y21, B41, B21, B45, YR04

My Buddy

Quick note: I'm so excited! just found out I got honorable mention for my Papertrey Star Box seen in the post below - check it out on Nichole's blog!!!

Ok, back to earth now ----- This is a two-fer card today - it covers two challenges - the Split Coast CAS (Clean and Simple) challenge - and the Doubledog Dare Challenge I do with some SCS friends (see my side bar for the team names!)

For the CAS challenge we had a sketch to follow . I made my front panel larger than the sketch but used the same number of layers. I stamped my Cornish Heritage Farms toy soldier right on the Cosmo Cricket designer paper. I stamped the sentiment from The Greeting Farm (it's on sale check it out!) on a piece of silver card stock and punched it with the Stampin Up Key Tag punch - looks just like a dog tag doesn't it!! The chain is from Michaels.

Anne (jdmommy) issued the Doubledog Dare challenge this week to make a kids card. I know my son always loved to play 'Army' when he was little - and when he grew up he signed up to serve! (thanks Josh!) I think this would be a fun birthday card for a young soldier! You are welcome to join in on the DDC challenges - just use the keyword DDC when you upload your card on Splite Coast - Beverly even created a Doubledog Dare challenge thread in the forums for us. You can see all the DDC cards here.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Three from The Greeting Farm

Are you as enamored as I am by the sweet images from The Greeting Farm?? I recently ordered some of their stamps and made these three projects.

First up is this 3x6 long card using Lemon Tart and white card stock from Papertrey Ink and Basic Black from Stampin Up. I used the cute Panda Friends set that is actually on clearance sale right now. I colored the image with grey, red and black Prismacolor markers and embossed around it with my rectangle nestability. I punched the little hearts and tied the Papertrey Swiss Dots satin ribbon around the bottom.

Stamps: Panda Friends: The Greeting Farm
Paper: White, Lemon Tart: PTI, Basic Black: SU
Ink: Onyx black Versafine
Accessories: True black dotted swiss ribbon: PTI, rectangle nestability, small heart punch, Prismacolor markers.

My son was in the Army for many years so I'm partial to all military stamps. This Army Ian was just up my alley. I put him on the cover of a coaster photo album and will add pictures of my son when he was in the service (I just need to find them as it was pre-digital camera time and the photos must be tucked somewhere neatly away!!! LOL!!!). I used extra big 1 1/4" wires to bind it with my Bind It All to give it a tough Army guy look!

I covered 4 additional coasters with green, brown and camouflage designer papers for the inside pages and I sponged all the edges. I made the 'dog tag' using the key tag punch and big eyelets - both from Stampin Up. The piece of map is designer paper called Road Map by Paper Pizazz that I got at JoAnn's. I crumpled it up, distressed the edges and sponged it with Chocolate Chip and So Saffron inks.

Stamps: Army Ian: The Greeting Farm
Paper: White: PTI, Medium Weight Coasters, DP: road map: Paper Pizazz, Camouflage unknown.
Ink: Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron: SU, Colorbox Silver pigment
Accessories: Bind it All, Prismacolor markers, copics, sponge, Twill - Vintage cream, ripe avocado, dark chocolate - PTI, Key tag punch, large eyelet - SU, Cropadile, scotch quick dry adhesive, rope: SU

And my third project is a 5x5 card using this cute digital Geisha girl Anya (no longer listed on The Greeting farm site). I colored her with Prismacolor markers to match this great designer paper called Sumi that I got at Michaels on sale recently. I used a piece of fiber that came off a floral bouquet that I had saved (you never know when you'll need something like this!! - I hadn't needed if for a whole year but this day it was perfect! LOL!!) I also added the metal coin to the bottom corner. I cut the flower out of a 2nd image, colored it and popped it up on foam dimensionals. The ovals are nestabilities.

Stamps: Digi image - Geisha Anya
Paper: Vintage Cream: PTI, Choc Chip: SU, DP: Sumi Made in Thailand
Accessories: copics, prismacolor markers, oval nestabilities, net fiber recycled, Asian coin, glue dots, foam dimensionals.
As you are reading this - I am hopefully snow shoeing up at DH's brother's home in VT! I have preposted this entry and hopefully it posts on Wed! And you can bet I'm suffering from withdrawal because I'm not stamping!!

Thanks so much for coming by today!
