Home Sweet Home - New Home New Baby along with New Challenge at Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge Blog

It's a new month which means a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge Blog????? Here's a challenge blog you are going to want to enter as she offers a once a month challenge the first of every month AND you can enter as many times you would want!!!!!!! 

Jean, not only had a new baby BUT in the process, they had moved to a new home. This is a card I had made for her along with taking some homemade rolls to wish her happiness in her new home. My grandmother had always taken a loaf of bread to wish people good luck and happiness in their new residence and to ensure they would always have "dough" . . . thus, I carry on the tradition. Here's my card I had made using a Create with TLC image, Home Sweet Home:


RECIPE and SUPPLIES:
  • size A2 card using aqua Recollection cardstock with a beautiful cloud paper for my background 
  • Home Sweet Home was colored using Whisper Strokes Markers, Prisma Colored Pencils, chalk, fussy cut around the edges with Stickles and gel pen accents
  • sentiment, "May love and happiness move in with you", had been a previous freebie from Create with TLC is chalked around the edges with rounded corners
  • sentiments, "Congratulations on your new home", had been hand-written by me with chalking around the sentiment to match my background 

Thank you for stopping and visiting today and hope you come back again!!!

On The Good Ship Lollipop With New Challenge at Create and Inspire

It's a new challenge at Create and Inspire - Are you ready to "create" with us??? We have for the challenge this week fabulous sponsor: 




In Pittsburgh, we have what is called the Gateway Clipper Fleet with one of the fleet being called the Good Ship Lollipop. Well, during vacation time, Lily and Adam went on the Good Ship Lollipop for a Pirate's Cruise which inspired me to use Lacy Sunshine Rory Sailing for a lay-out with my wonderful inspiration - Lily and Adam!!!







RECIPE and SUPPLIES:
  • background DCW All About Boys Stack
  • Rory was colored using Prisma Colored Pencils, Whisper Strokes with Stickles and gel pen accents  
  • "Good Ship Lollipop" tag was made for me by Paulette at Create with TLC  which was colored with Tim Holtz Marker and chalked around the edges 
  • sentiment, "Work like a Captain, Play like a Pirate", was part of Create with TLC  July Mega Club which was rounded around the corners and chalked around the edges 
  • anchor button was added to "Good Ship Lollipop" with a wheel and anchor button to Rory's hat
OK, you knew, I just had to do it . . . . ready to get on your tap shoes and sing along with Shirley . . . .
        Now, just for a bit of nostalgia and just in case I would ask you - Jen when she was Lily's age, her first dance show number was "On the Good Ship Lollipop" . . . I need to find a picture now in her dance costume!!!!
