CDAC Seasonal Fun!


Here is another creation that I just finished and this card is for the CDAC "Seasonal Fun Challenge". Valentines Day is just around the corner so I made this cute card using one of my newest images called  "Candy Hearts Jar". You can purchase this image and many more by going to my store. Just click on the name and it will take you there. 
I colored my image using Photoshop and cut it out with one of my Nestabilities dies. I made my own plaid background paper, added some heart gems, ribbon and a stick pin. I hope you like it!

Fried Pickle Spears


Hello everyone... Today I have a new creation and this one is for the CDAC "Anything Goes" Challenge. I love pickles!!! I had Fried pickles last week and I decided to make them and create a recipe card using my newest image called "Pickle Jar With Cover". You can purchase my image by clicking on the name. 
I colored my image using Adobe Photoshop and added some Glossy Accents and Liquid Pearls to the pickles. This is my very own recipe and I have posted it below! If you are not a member of CDAC and would like to join just click HERE...
