I'm Guest designing for Sue at

Hello, This is such an exciting post for me to write, I was able to work with Sue over at to showcase some of her images she carries in her shop and believe me the pleasure was all mine.  I have three cards to show you today, very impressive for me to have three at one time!

This is a rubber stamp at Sue's store called Sadie's Floral Hat listed under the D'Amour Allure line, I love her name, don't you?  I name all my favorite images, LOL, anyways the minute I saw her I thought of her as 'my' Sailor Girl so I used a nautical theme here with her.  She is going to sail the Seven Seas for me and see the world.  Notice the wood paper in the background, that is also from Sue's store, the wheel and compass is a die-cut off of an invitation I got last summer.  I also sewed on the wood paper a wave design to mimic the Sea.
On this card I used a digital image, an orchid called Orchid (funny how that works!).   To color the flower I used my chalks, and used some Stickles for the flower center to give it some sparkle, a variety of Stickles are available in Sue's store as well.  If you noticed the wood paper I used on this card front, I embossed it, it went right through my Wizzard with no problems.  I am so really for Spring and this is such a nice digi to welcome it in.

 And look at my last card!!! Also a digital called "Lilly with Cat and dog'.  Once I received it and printed in on my printer, I thought - no need to color this one, I love it as a Black and White so that is exactly what I decided to do - leave it as it is.  I did add some embellishments like machine sewing, metal corner holders, black lace, Prima flowers, (also available at Sue's store), a black gingham brad, and a Happy Birthday pin.  I hope this gives you some ideas on how to use these images, I am sure you can come up with many of your own but whatever you 'do up', boy they sure are fun and Sue is a great lady to work with.  So hop on over to and meet her
Thank you for joining me today and sharing my three new cards, I hope you have a good day.   I still have my R.A.K (blog candy) offering in effect, please read below for that information.   Blessings to you,  Jane
