I am so bad - I just didn't feel like working today, so I left 2 hours early, came home and found these 2 awesome challenges to play in! [Yep, I have priorities :).]
Moxie Fab is running a word die cut challenge, and Tag Your It #1 is CASEing Virginia's fun tags, which fortunately, had word dies! Perfect.
I picked up on Virginia's color scheme, [kind of nice to get away from blues and greens.] along with her word die.
I used my fun Add a Little Dazzle Gold Craft Metal Sheet. [I get credit if you want to order any of the sheet metal HERE] To strengthen the metal, I adhered it on to a piece of card stock first, and then ran my Avery Elle Hello die through my cutter. I like the fact I get 2 projects out a one cut. My flowers are from the Verve set, One Person [retired].
I also had to play in the CASE Study Challenge #198. My hero, Shari Carroll is the July Muse. Oh my, I just adore this women's work! If I haven't pinned her cards, they are saved to my computer~ LOVE.HER.WORK. [I got to meet her last year at CHA. I'm sure she doesn't remember, but I sure do :).]
I sponged in my [WalMart] stencil and used some Graphic 45 chipboard pieces. The chevrons are from STAMPlorations, Chevron & Arrows, with the sentiment being from MFT, Simply Fabulous Sayings.
Another awesome way to start off my week end~ I hope you enjoy the 4th and you find some crafty time too.
Thanks for stopping by~
