Aloha! Pineapple Girl Doily Card...

Hi there, friends!  I know it's been a week since my last post but time always fly by so fast in my home and it was only yesterday that I was able to make this fabulous card I am sharing with you today.  It's been cloudy and rainy here for a couple of days now and though we don't see snow commonly here, the ever changing Texas weather is not easy to deal with so, when I saw this fabulous Pineapple Girl Image from Mo Manning, all colored and ready (I colored it a few months ago with my Promarker and Prismacolor markers), I was inspired to make this Hawaiian, summer inspired, 5.5-inch card.  I think she is so pretty that I cannot just make a simple card for her so, I cut a couple of doily cards with Kraft and Red CS (using my Cricut Wildcard cartridge) attached them together and started embellishing.  I cut several circles in different sizes with 3 different DP's and used them to layer my card.  I cut 2 flowers with my Sizzix die, embossed it with my Cuttlebug, layered some Prima flowers on them, attached with brads and glittered.  I also cut 3 Swirly vines with another Sizzix die and added some glitters on them.  Then, I included some gems for added dimension.  The sentiment is from Hampton Art Stamps.  And yes, as you will notice, I did a ton of sewing on this card.  All in all, I had a long, fabulous time crafting and it turned out great.  What do you think?  This card is entered into the following Challenges:

1.  Playing In Paradise featuring "Stitching: Real or Faux"
2.  Crafty Ann's featuring "Bold and Bright" 
3.  Digi Doodle Shop Best featuring "Anything Goes" 
4.  DP2 featuring "My Sentiments Exactly" 
5.  Cute Card Thursday featuring "Flower Power" 
6.  Delightful Challenges featuring "Use Your Scraps" 
7.  Fab 'n' Funky featuring "Try Something New"---I combined die-cut flowers and Primas
8.  Crafty Catz Weekly featuring "Favorite Things"---I love glitters, flowers, swirls 
9.  Do You Stack Up featuring "Layers"
10.Paper Crafting Journey featuring "Make it Cute"

12.Crafters Companion featuring "Anything Goes" 
13.That's Krafty Thursday featuring "Use of Kraft CS" 
14.SSDS Challenge featuring"More Than Two Layers"





After all the fun time crafting last night, I was very sleepy today (the cool and rainy day helped me feel that way too...LOL) and I am glad I found the strength to post this card after dosing off several times in our sofa.  Oh and I had an exam with my Bible Class last Thursday and I think I got a perfect score (I'll know for sure next Thursday) so, thanking my Father Almighty Who is ever so faithful to me in spite of my imperfections.  He surely reminds me daily how the blood of Jesus washed me clean of every sin in the past, present and future.  To Him, I give all the praise.  Okay guys, time for me to go and hope to hear your comments on my card soon.  Have a wonderful weekend.

    Jo Ann you don't really need any qualifications for DT work.Basically you just need to be able to make cards or other projects(which you do beautifully),meet deadlines,post on your blog and be committed to commenting.You'd need to check individual team calls to see exactly what they want from you.Take a look at Feline Playful ,they have a section for DT Calls,or any challenge blogs.Why not give it a try?

    1. Lisa...Thanks for sharing some info about DT work and I will surely look into the link you shared and the many other challenges out there that calls for DT. Big challenge for me is time and I know that when I commit, I give my all but may mean sleepless nights so, had to see if I can handle that.
