SU Regarding Dahlias

SU Regarding Dahlias for the Friday MashUp # 130

For a while now,  I have played along with the wonderful participants at the The Friday MashUp Challenge site. I  have always loved the examples the talented design team displays each week.  I decided to apply when they had a DT Call. WooHoo…I am doing the happy dance because I was asked to be on the team starting in November! I am not only excited but also nervous. I hope I can inspire the players as I have been inspired week after week. Go on over and visit the site…the challenges are always so fun and creative. I hope to see you play along!

Here is my submission for this week’s Challenge # 130 where Tara asks us to Fussy Cut and Rip Something.


I used the SU Regarding Dahlias stamp at classes this week and thought it would be a reasonable one to fussy cut since that isn’t my strong point. So I set to cutting that gorgeous flower up and liked it. I enjoyed the paper tearing, too. It is something I have not done in many years, though it was one of the first techniques I learned  to use on a card around a decade ago ! This is a VERY clean and simple design, it just lets the Dahlia stand out. However, after seeing Amy White’s card (jaw drops) – I know that the Dahlia dresses up and struts her stuff so well- her card is stunning!

I’m in my craft room spending the last day with my daughter before she goes to start her senior year of Nursing School. She is making brochures for her nursing fraternity/sorority while I made this card for The Dynamic Duos #66. We parallel play well;)
