The F4A409 Challenge this week was to use fruit images, so I used these lovely grapes from Gina K. Designs, from a stamp set called Better with Age. Memento ink to stamp and copic markers to color the fruit and leaves. I placed the image on a scalloped oval and added some dimensionals, to give additional interest.

This is for the MOD Squad Challenge- a Winter Scene and also for the double D challenge for a Winter card. The snowflakes are little metal embellies, but I did fussy cut the house and Santa, after coloring with Copic markers.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!

This is for the F4A408 Split Coast Challenge, Sweet Treats, with a Masculine flavor. I used an image from The Sweet Thing stamp set from Gina K. Designs and then I added the sentiment from this set also. The frosting was colored with Gamsol and colored pencils. A few gems anchored the sentiment panel to the CS base.

Here is another Christmas creation. I love these trees from Gina K. Designs. I added a few gem stickers to the center tree for a little sparkle, and some Stickles touches to the other two trees.

This is another really old stamp set that I was playing around with yesterday and decided I should make another Christmas card with it. I think 2011 was a year I received a lot of stamps that needed a little love and use again. I added some pearls to spice it up a bit too. I am sure it is long ago discontinued set!

I was just playing in my craft room today and decided to make a Sympathy Card with a stamp set from my stash from 2011. Yes I still like these trees and these trees are perfect for this type of card. After I was through making it, I shocked myself as to how long I have had this set! Boy, time really goes by quickly, doesn't it?

I guess I am thinking about the snow that will be here before I know it. I chose to fussy cut and color this cute snowman from Gina K. Designs. It is only 53 degrees here today, but.....
Thank you for visiting my latest card!

I made this card yesterday while waiting for my friend to come over and we could go to lunch. I had so much fun creating this one. Apparently we will be getting snow here before we know it. It is December, right?

Time is flying by so quickly, and now I have a Christmas Wreath card to show you today. This is for the Mod Squad Challenge to have a Wreath Focal point. I decided to make my card look like a front door that is decorated for the Holidays. Glitter berries shine on the wreath, as it hangs on the door!
I used SC673 Sketch to design my card yesterday.

Today I wanted to share another Christmas card I just finished, using Copics, glitter, Gina K. Designs card stock and a little sponging behind the stocking. A Happy Holiday sentiment finished it.
I appreciate you taking a peek!

I was playing with my stash yesterday and decided to make a Christmas card using Non-traditional colors. I was thinking this might be a good card for someone who might be tired of red and green colored cards! The snowflake and sentiment are from the Gina K. Holly Jolly stamp set. I added a few silver pearls to finish things off and get this ready for you to view. Have a great day.

I was gifted with this fun stamp set from Power Poppy and after it was delivered yesterday I had to play with it and make this card. I stamped with Memento black ink and then colored with Copic markers. I added some gold twine to the background to match his hat band!

I made this for the Just Us Girls challenge- to use Turquoise, Gold and Brown. Got it done with my autumn card. My leaves were all cleaned up yesterday, so I made this card for the wonderful person that got it done for me. The colors were perfect as our sky was a pretty turquoise yesterday as the sun was shining. Happy that it got done before the rain today!

Here is a tag I made after watching Cat's video yesterday. I used a Spellbinder die cut , and added poinsettias from the Merry and Bright Stamp set from Gina K. Designs, which I colored with in and Copics. I added some sparkle and dimensionals and the finished it off with some elastic cord. Black Nuvo drops finished the flower centers. I am thinking this would be great to add to a bottle of wine to take to a friend's house.

I made this tag card using an Embossing Folder that was inked as the tag. I added a few Spellbinder details to the sides of the tag after I used some twine as a bow detail for my tag. I inked a CB folder to give detail to the tag. A couple of pearls added some more texture at the card's bottom.
What a fun project!

Well, snow is predicted so I thought I would make this fun card using trees and a snowman. A background made with a CB folder and some awesome bg paper that I had made a while ago. Love this little snowman, don't you?
Gina K. Designs made all this possible!

This is for Sherri's challenge STV17MON45 Tag You're It. I made the background using Yupo Paper and then added a sentiment. Before I added the string the tag was attached to a matching piece of card stock to make it a bit stronger. I am thinking of hanging this tag on a bottle of Olive Oil to thank a hostess for her dinner invitation.

Yesterday's schedule got a little mixed up, but I did manage to get this card done, but couldn't get it on my blog here until this morning.
Copics on my die cut poinsettias and leaves, along with glitter centers on those flowers, and a 3d touch to the Holly centers, which I placed on a Spellbinder background. I am really excited to be using the Merry and Bright kit from Gina K. Designs.

This is an easel calendar I made for 2018. It was a fun project to make and so different from the cards I usually make- something other than a card!!!!! I added die cuts in green card stock, and numbers that were make a long time ago. A little flower was put on the front to soften the look a little.

I made this card and matching tag for the STV17MON44 Challenge and to add to the MIUM Challenge also at Gina K. Designs.
I used to stamp set called Christmas Greenery and Purrfect Christmas, along with the twine, eyelets, brads and Copic markers. Super fun set, don't you think?

My dear sweet neighbors are getting a new puppy- a Goldendoodle- so I just had to make this card for them. I am so happy at how it turned out. I used a Darice Embossing folder called Paw Prints and then added the puppy from the Basket Buddies stamp set by Melanie Muenchinger and Gina K. Designs, which I colored and fussy cut.

Since today is a rather gloomy day, I thought to play in my craft room--haha
Something different for me???? NOT.
I used the Purrfect Christmas stamp set from Gina K. Designs. I am loving this set especially because of the cat images!

Here is another Christmas card using the Gina K. Designs Merry and Bright kit with cats, gems, and a textured background. The background was textured with a couple of Cuttlebug folders, scallops that I made with my Spellbinder die. The Stickled touches made the tree look like it was lit up. The star was colored with a gold paint pen and put on with dimensionals. Thank you for stopping by to look around!
