Craft US Crazy Challenge 7 - Mother's Day and/or Flowers...

I just don't know where the last fortnight has gone!! Anyway we are on to the next challenge for Craft US Crazy which is Mother's Day and/or Flowers.  You can choose one of these themes or do both if you choose ;o)

We have two fabulous sponsors this challenge....the sponsor for the first half of our challenge is the one and only...
 Meljen's Designs is a lovely stamp company owned and illustrated by Melissa Jenkins. She illustrates whimsical rubber and digital images inspired by her kids and family.  Meljen's Designs has new releases along with a new challenge every Thursday, freebies every Monday and a Guest Designer each month at the Meljen's Designs Blog. Please visit the Meljen's Designs line of stamps at the WHIMSY STAMPS STORE to browse and enjoy Melissa's wonderful images!
and they're offering FOUR DIGI IMAGES OF WINNERS CHOICE!!! How generous is that?? I know everyone has some Meljen's favorites that they would like to add to their collection! So what are you waiting for!?!?!

And we would like to welcome a new sponsor to Craft Us Crazy that will be sponsoring the second half of our challenge, beginning May 5th...and that would be the ever so cute and awesome... 
Your Next Stamp offers a unique variety of fun and whimsical rubber stamps for every occasion!  Their signature lines include Fhiona and Friends, Heather Collections, Dale Designs and the humorous Franfou Collection. Stamps are produced with top quality rubber, which are then mounted onto cling foam, trimmed and are ready to use with any clear block!

YNS has finally joined the social media phenomenon so be sure to check out their new Facebook page!

So onto my designs for this week!  I have done two different projects with the Sunflowerbuggies digi stamp from Meljens Designs.  I just love it!

The first project is an easel card using the Summer Driggs 'A little Spring in your step' papers which I had free as a digital download.  I love the colours on this set and to match I coloured the sunflower image in pink instead of yellow.  The image is coloured with Pro markers.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I made some paper roses and covered them with rock candy stickles.  I added some green ribbon and a bow to the easel bar and that was it!  Hope you like it. 
The next project I did used papers from the same range but this time for a little wall hanging rather than a card;

I used the same digi stamp in the same Pro marker colours to match the card.  I cut out 'flowers' on my Cricut and distressed some seam binding to match the colours.  I made more paper roses but this time I dipped them into ultra thick embossing enamel so they are really shiny (not sure this shows too well in the pictures).  The actual hanging is using a Papermania chipboard sheet out of one of their  mini album packs.

Anyway I hope you like my two little projects;o)  I hope you'll have a go with the challenge this month.
Take care
