Heart 2 Heart Challenge: Color Me Happy

This week at Heart 2 Heart we are all sharing our favorite colors in our projects.  Sounds easy, right?

Ha! From Millan.Net

Asking a crafter to choose their favorite color or combo is like asking a parent to choose their favorite child!  And while I may have some children...COLORS...I meant colors, From Millan.Net that I like to create with more than others, I just couldn't pick one or two...or even three.

So my card has a whole subtle rainbow of colors!

From Millan.Net
Stamps: Card Chatter-Birthday
Inks: Black
Papers: White Daisy, Hollyhock, Ruby, Sunset, Honey, Topiary, Sky, Pacifica, Gypsy
Accessories: Sparkles
Tools: Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, Piercer, Corner Rounder, 3D tape

I pulled this card together quickly with the AP cartridge.  The butterfly is found on page 41 of the handbook.  I cut one of each color + White Daisy at 1.25".  They are attached together at the body with a rolled up mini glue dot.  Each of the sparkles are colored with the coordinating marker, besides the three clear ones of course.  I did trace several "flutter" lines with a pencil until I was happy with the look.  I used the piercer along the line and place the colored sparkles as I went.

This may have to be a hand delivered card...there are 11 layers where that butterfly is!

Thank you for stopping by and playing along with BOTH design teams this week!  I'm sad to say this is the final week of my term on the team.From Millan.Net  I've enjoyed being back and a part of the group.  And I hope I'll be able to keep up with the new ladies starting the second term!

If you want to play along, visit the H2H blog and get inspired by all the beautiful artwork.  Then get cracking on your own!  Just remember the few rules to play by:

1. Use CTMH products when you can.
2. Link your blog post (not just your blog) with the Linky found at H2H.
3. Share your favorite color or color combo!

Have fun this week!

Convention 2013, Here We Go!

Right about now we are on our way to Walt Disney World so I can attend the Close To My Heart 2013 National Convention with 2000 of my closest friends!
From Millan.Net

I wanted to make some special friends something to remember this awesome trip by so I put together matching bracelets for us all!

(Most of them are on their way as well so I know they won't be peeking at my blog any time today!)

I think we all like to wear some bling, so I made sure to choose super sparkly beads for us! From Millan.Net

I'll try and share some of the great things we'll see in session, but if I end up having too much fun on the Pirates of the Caribbean From Millan.Net it may have to wait until I get back!

Heart 2 Heart Challenge: Tool Time

Good morning and welcome to another weekly challenge from Heart2Heart!

Summer is upon us and that means one of two things. From Millan.Net
Either you are super busy with travel, swim lessons, backyard parties, and countless trips to the library...or you don't have kids.  Just kidding!  I have found that summer can be a hard time of year, you're either over run with activities or a total lack of energy to do anything.  And that my friends is where the wonderful world of tools come in!  Anything to make life easier, right?

My Mama (grandmother) told me once, and I'm sure we've all heard it at one time or another, "Oh you make the cutest things!  I could never do that!"  I told her anyone can do anything if they have the right tools.

And so for this week's challenge, we want you to share something you've created using your very favorite tool...or three if the case may be.

With Father's Day just around the corner, I made a little something for my Dad using my favorite tool, the Cricut!

Stamps: Perfect Fit-Dad
Inks: Barn Red, Outdoor Denim, Desert Sand, New England Ivy, Indian Corn Blue, Chocolate
Papers: Colonial White, Kraft, Outdoor Denim cardstock
Accessories: Brown and Tan Sparkles
Tools: Artiste Cricut cartridge, tweezers, micro-tip scissors 

The ties are found on page 75 of the Artiste handbook.  I cut them out at 3".  The circle is 2" and just the right size for the "award".

There were six of us growing up, hence the six ties for my dad.  Now all I have to do is be sure and get it in the mail! From Millan.Net

So time to get creating!  Be sure and follow the guidelines...CTMH items, link to your blog post, etc.  You know the drill.  Have fun and be sure to stop by the other DT members' blogs and check out their favorite tools, too!
