Strong is the new SKINNY {SS}

Happy Tuesday!
Today is my day to post on the Challenge Blog over at
I created this fun CAS card for one of my exercising friends.
I love this Felicity digital from Sweet Stamps.
This is a one layer 3X3.25" card.
I just colored her using Copic Pen, added a few sequins 
and my own mixed font sentiment.
Easy peasy....
I hope you'll skip over to Sweet Stamps and check out
the latest challenge.
This weeks' theme is Paper Piecing.

Have a super day today!!

Sun Screen {CDD}

Today is my design team post for 
Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party 
hosted by Tara of Craftin Desert Divas!

Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a 

new semi-weekly linky party and you could win fabulous prizes!!
This linky party theme is Summer and you have until June 7th to play along!

The sponsors are: 

The more you link up, the better chance you have to win.  
Visit Craftin Desert Divas for all the rules and to play along.

Here is what I created for this linky party....
"Sun Screen"
{I sure thought I was witty coming up with that title}
 Using the Banner Dies and stamps from Summer Lovin'
I created this fun folded card.
I think this would be so fun as a little display.
I added stickers from my much ignored stash
they are by Jolee's. 
The directions for this card are :
Card Base : 4.25 X 11"
Score at: 2.75", 5.5", 8.25" and fold in opposite directions
I used the banner dies oval to cut the bottom for the appearance of a stand
added designer papers and die cut ovals along with the stickers and fun sentiments.
Easy peasy...
Hope you will Craft It Up & Link It Up!!!
