Shape EZ and a challenge

Oh my goodness!!  Is it July already?  The day we celebrate our independence, and honor those that have given their lives for our freedom!  We've bought our annual fireworks and the food we will bar b que too!  My fathers birthday is the 3rd of July so it's time to get working on something for him in my crafty room as well!  Loads to do!


Anyway, today is a very special project because it's made with two of my favorite products, Shape EZ template "The Rolled Bag" and one of the cutest little digital stamps from That Craft Place Etsy Store.    The challenge over at the Sugar and Betty is Anything Goes, so it won't matter what you make, just enter to win! Best of Luck and I'll be stopping by your blogs to say hi and admire all of your work!

Sometimes, you needed to make a gift for that special little friend tat isn't a girl!  It's hard to come up with something for him.  This is the type of project that you'd be happy to give a little something in to a young man.  A few little toys from the dollar store or a great pair of athletic socks!  The perfect gift!

every one of these new images!

 For my second project I decided to highlight this adorable Candi Bean illustration called "WILD THING"  I wanted to make certain that her and her four legged friend really popped!  Her friend is simply adorable and so cuddly too1  Her hair is luxurious with that gorgeous braid and her little feet turned in is a real show of her affection!  The DP is soft and subtle but has all the coordinating colors to bring all the dies and colors together.

 I created the base of the card with the Darling Square Die Set.  Using the little extras that makes it so simple to coordinate, the two different sized flowers were layered and a brad was colored yellow with copics.  Then the little pearls in the center of the flower flourish were altered too, which are also in the Darling Square Set.  The Darling View,  Dewdrop Border and attached to the view finder style die is the Fluttered Tulip Bodice!!!  All of these dies were an absolute must to add more texture and a childhood friend feel to the card.  The Vintage Affections Sentiment set called "Friends" was a perfect final touch for the project.
