~ Crafty Secrets Design Team Challenge ~ Childhood Theme

CSbaby4
CSbaby1
Back today, with some special projects for Crafty Secret's DT June challenge. We got to pick what we wanted to make, so long as it fits in the "childhood" theme. I guess that wasn't too hard for me as I'm kind of barely out of that phase of my life!!! Haha.

CSbaby3
Made with my favorite things! stamps, ink, pearls, twine, ribbons, and lots of other goodies. Can't just pick one.
This is also my last week as guest DT member for the shabby tea room! *weep* ...
and this card fits that challenge perfectly, My Favorite Things.

CSbaby2
Crafty Secrets supplies: Love Mail creative scraps (pale aqua and floral image), Little Blessings creative scraps (little girl image), Artsy Banners stamp set (banner and text background), Angel Blessings stamp set (sentiment).

One more childhood project!

See that beautiful floral patterned paper? and the one with dotty green ferns too? those are from the new Creating with Vintage Patterns CD!! it is FULL of gorgeous prints, great for both digital art and printing. I ~love~ it so much, and will be using it endlessly. Pretty little image is from the Little Blessings creative scraps.

Another snippet of the beautiful new paper available in that CD. I simply accented the digital lace with pearls. The stamped sentiments come from the Tea with Alice stamp set and Material Girl stamp set. Just did a little bit of "sneaky" stamping, using some tiny text images from both sets to create my custom sentiment.

  12. First of all, I hope you are feeling better. It seems very early to have a flu bug going around, doesn't it? I am going to admit my stupidity here, and ask you what you mean by "I simply accented the digital lace with pearls"? That lace looks like we could touch it, so I'm confused. TIA Linda S. in NE

  26. Viola, I have been visiting your blog for a couple of months now and you are just an amazing creative young lady. Your cards are just breathtakingly beautiful! On this card, you took a pennant, which I usually see and view as fun, whimsical, festive, and you made it beautiful and elegant to match your card. You amaze me. I hope that you feel better soon.
