Happy St. Paddy's Day!, CDT member Kelly Stone, DSO color Freebie

Hi Everyone,
Are you shocked? I'm posting once again and it's only been a few days since my last post! LOL!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I have a great card in honor of the Holiday Deb Cole made. She used my
I Love You Card file. However, she put a very creative twist on it by turning the heart button into a clover! How clever is that!

I promised to announce my Creative Design Team so I'm back today to announce Kelly Stone. She is a very talented! She is best know for her attention to detail and her love of embossing. Below is a photo of Kelly and a few words about herself.

"My name is Kelly Stone and I will be 33 this March. I am happily married and work full-time with my husband running a small computer store. Currently it is just us and our 3 cats, but we are hoping to expand our family this year. We live in upstate NY, although each cold winter we talk about moving further south. (Maybe someday . . . LOL). I own a blue Wishblade and KNK Studio GE. I am an avid card maker and really enjoy the sketch challenges at Paperthreads that Shelly hosts. They are a great source of inspiration. I have done a few scrapbook layouts, and I am hoping to do more this year. I am delighted to be a member of Shelly's Creative Design Team."

This card uses my Cupcake Card file and Sentiments Variety File. I love the sparkles and embossing! I actually designed this file to be used independently as a shaped card but Kelly had a fabulous idea of putting it on a rectangle card.

The card below also uses the cupcake file and sentiments variety file. This time however, Kelly made the cupcake much smaller. What a great idea!

This card uses my alphabet charm letters file for the inside of the card and also Paperthreads Designs Swirly Flower Block for the front. I have to say I never thought to add any of my files to the inside of cards...it looks great though!

Last, this card used my build a snowman file and Christmas word charms file. I love all the snowflake patterns on this one.

As you can see Kelly does excellent work and I'm so proud to have her on my team!

Now I finally got my little mini kit done for the DSO color challenge. You can download my freebie by clicking on the links below the preview. Kim B picks out such excellent colors don't you think? If you like what you see visit the forum to download many other mini kits and see some great layouts using the colors swatch. Please leave a comment as a little TY goes a long way! Oh and I don't use 4shared!

Sorry about the broken links! They should work now! Oh the wonder of technology! Thanks!

Pretty kit, was able to get the first set of papers. Couldn't get the second set or the elements. They would only go a little way and then slow down to under 20kb a minute and never go anywhere. Perhaps whatever server you are now using is on overload.

Shelly said...

I removed what I could from the server. I don't think there is much on there now. I tried all three links and they worked perfectly. So please try again!

I love your mini kit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much :)

just tried again and it hung at 1%, 218kb downloaded with 3 and 1/2 hours left to go. This was on paper 2. Didn't even attempt to try elements. Hope it is still up Saturday as I will be off tomorrow. It is a pretty kit and hate to miss it; however, tried 2 browsers and still no luck. thanks for trying. Not many comments here, so I wonder if others had trouble and just gave up.
