You Color My World and Clear It Out Challenge #72

Join us this week at 
to start your Spring cleaning!

I worked with this adorable digital image by

Let me tell you, the wheels were turning with this. 
I have loads of hoarded items but wanted something 
different. Rory demands different, ya know?
I dug into a draw filled with "I might need that one day" items.
I found the paint brush and I remembered the pink polka dot straws. 
So, I snapped the paint brush handle down in size and cut the straw.
Applied some glue inside straw and slid paint brush in. Viola! 
Perfectly Pink Paint Brush using 2 hoarded items. 
I used my Silhouette to cut the paint splash and cans. 

Ribbon,Lace and Pearls with Dream Valley Challenge #103

It's all about Ribbon/Lace and Pearls this week 

I have to tell you I'm not a Lace and Pearl girl! At least, I didn't think so.
However, once I started adding layers to this card I couldn't stop. This adorable 
digital image is by All Dressed Up, Abi Ballerina! She really made 
it so easy to dress up the card. I had so much fun with this. I'm looking forward 
to my next "girlie" card.

I love this image with the daises layered on the yellow and green papers.
