Posted by Lena Nunn at 8:54 PM 8 comments
I made this 4th of July card for the fostv challege. When I think of independence day I think of our soldiers who work so had to ensure we have it. Therefor I wanted to add the yellow ribbon for the troops. The poppies are a new release from Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. called Welcome Poppies. You should play along this week too, there is a great stamp set up for grabs .

Posted by Lena Nunn at 12:00 AM 7 comments
Hi everyone! Happy weekend! I wanted to share with you a card I made for Speedy Fox and Friends challenge 113 which was to use score lines. I loved this challenge because I have a score board and never use it but, when  I do I always love the results. I made this card using the Scenic Selections set from Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. I love this set because you can build scenes or just use them as accents. You should go play along because there is a great stamp set up for grabs!!!

Are you all melted yet? It was 107 here yesterday!!!! To me thats right up there with death. I hate the heat !!!! At least I was inspired for the Friends Of Speedy TV challenge which was a summer card. As I was sitting there wilting I had fantasies of being at the beach. Playing in the sand. aaahhhh. Cool water. I wanted to use a new set from Marks Finest Papers and Stamps, A Heinrich Co. called Silly Shells . So I made this card which was the closest thing I got to the beach. You should play along and you could win this awesome stamp set :

Posted by Lena Nunn at 12:00 AM 7 comments
Happy weekend friends!!! I don't know about you but this weekend is NEEDED!!! What a long week. I hope this week you will have time to play along with Speedy Fox and friends because the challenge is Vintage and there is an awesome stamp set up for grabs!!! Go check it out here.  As always if you enter your name will be added to the drawing to win the stamp set. If you use a Marks Finest Papers, a heinrich Co. set then your name gets entered twice!!! I made this card using the Pucker Up set , which I won on a challenge before I was on the DT. I stamped my lemon using Memento black , I then colored using prismacolor pencils and Oderless mineral spirits (OMS) . I wanted to use mostly black for the coloring to make it look older. I also used this ribbon because it reminds me of old kitchen curtains. This card was...easy peesy Lemon squeezy. hahahah I crack myself up ( come on you know that made you smile) .

Go check it out here to play along for a chance to win a great stamp set! I love this set which is called Pucker Up!  and is a Marks Finest Papers , a Heinrich Company set .  Although those who know me, know that I lovvvee lemons.

FOSTV Challenge 23 , buttons and bows

Posted by Lena Nunn at 12:00 AM 9 comments
I know I shared exciting news with you all yesterday but I have more good news today!!! I'm actually on two of the Design Teams for Marks Finest Papers a Heinrich Company. This card is for the FOSTV challenge 23 which is to use buttons and bows. Go over and enter for a chance to win some awesome stamps!!! I have to admit this was a bit of a challenge for me since I don't normally use much ribbon or bows. . I did however just get this set Buffalo Spring and thought it would go perfect with this brown ribbon and the light blue button.  The happy birthday sentiment is from Pansy Riot.
