Guest Designer at Love To Create

It's a fun day for me today!  I am guest designer over at Love To Create!  For this challenge they want to see "fussy cuts".  That is so right up my alley.  I think I like cutting even more than coloring.  =)  We got to choose any image from their sponsor "Stamp Art Designs by Kathryne".  I picked this adorable stamp called "Owl-Ways Thinking of You".  I fell in love with those giant eyes!!  I printed the image on Watercolor paper, and the two different colors of brown cardstock.  I colored the eyes, beak, and feet using the watercolor paper.  I just counted and my owl is 5 layers high.  Oh yeah, I love to cut.  I hope you will come on over and join us this week at the Love to Create challenge!  I wanna see your fussy cutting!
I would like to submit this card into these challenges:

Get the tools out

I love this tool set from Doodle Pantry.  All the men that are in my life are very handy with tools so this set is so perfect.  Plus I love a good pun and this sentiment is a great pun!  I used tin foil on my card just for a different look.  It was hard to get a decent picture with out a weird glare.  The brads are too perfect with this set.  This fun set is called Classic Tools and I think it is a must have for male cards.  Hop on over and check it out.

Happy Delightful Thursday

Happy Delightful Thursday to you all!  Today I have two scrapbook pages to show you.  This summer we took a day trip with the two granddaughters and went to the zoo in South Dakota.  We had a great day and here are two pages from the scrapbook.  I used several images from Digital Delights.  The first page below I used Jubbly Zebra and the palm tree is from the Jungle Buddies Accessory set.
Page two of the layout is below and that uses Jubbly Giraffe, Jubbly Monkey and another palm tree from the Jungle Buddies Accessory set.   
We had a great day and I had a lot of fun coloring up these cuties for the scrapbook which is already getting enjoyed by all.

It's about time!

Happy Sunday to all of you!  Hope your day is going great.  My feelings were all over the chart about this card.  When I was just starting with the ideas for this card I was excited, then as the card progressed I was getting disappointed.  Then finally as the end product came to be I am happy with the card.  Does that ever happen to you.  I guess it looks so good in my head and I can't seem to get that out sometimes.  But, I am happy with it now.  This beautiful antique clock is from Doodle Pantry.  The clock and sentiment are part of a new digital set called Ageless Antiques.  
I don't normally do this but I was afraid you couldn't see the acetate butterflies so I took another picture of the card laying flat.  They are being held on my brads. 
I would like to submit this card into these challenges:
City Crafter - Something Clear
