3. 1. 2018 MOD Squad Challenge

The MOD Squad Challenge is to have a bunny or chick as the focal point.  Well, I have 2 of each to satisfy my focal point!  Waiting for Spring, Easter and warmer weather inspired my design for this card.

Thank you for stopping by.

Wed. 2.28.2018 The End of February- Hope you are healing!

Are you as happy to see the end of this month?  Spring will be here before we know it---fingers crossed!  I have quite a few friends that this card would be welcomed to receive  this, by any of them.  So many incidents happened this year!

So glad you stopped by for a visit!

Mon. Feb. 26, 2018 Maybe a Party?

Today would have been a 70th Anniversary for my parents, but sadly they divorced after 30 years.  My Dad passed quite some time ago but Mom, - lives with Alzheimer's in a Senior Facility, at 87 years old.
I created this card as a Happy Party card, just to make us all smile. No stamping involved- just die cut bows from lots of colored card.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Sun. Feb.25, 2018 Sympathy card with Trees

I just love this tree stamp from Gina K. Designs.  I found it works perfectly for Sympathy cards, and I have learned to have them ready- for when I least expect to send one. It makes things so much easier than having to make one-when sadness is in your heart. Keep a couple handy to send for those last minutes Sympathy wishes.  This seems to work as a very simple design, that expresses my feelings rather well. 

Sun. 3.25.2018 Lattice and Tulle

I came up with this design yesterday using the flowers from the Merry and Bright set, in blue instead of Christmas colors.  I wanted this thank you card to look more Spring Like!  The soft colors really work to create this card, that added to all the texture going on.
 Thank you for visiting!

Sat., FEB2018 Challenge-- Take a Peek

I made these two cards yesterday.  The 1st was another with the Shaving Cream technique and a Die cut sentiment to finish up the card front.

The 2nd card was for FEB2018 Challenge from The Gina K Release party, Thursday night. I die cut the trees from the Merry and Bright Kit and popped it up on a background of white CS and a little bit of black.  The only color is that little punched and colored star.  It is so much fun to work with a stamp with a matching die. 

I like that it is black and white and will come in handy as a Get Well card.  Seems like quite a bit of illness going around this winter, right?

Thank you for visiting!

Fri. 2.23.2018 Tree Thank You

I found this tree, that has been on my desk for years.  It was cut  on my Silhouette Cameo a long time ago, and I saved it.  I added the sentiment that was a Spellbinder cut and covered with Gina K. crystalline drops, to add shine and dimension.  This design is simple, but I think it grabs your attention.  At least I hope so.

 A  4.5 " square, really works for this simple card!   Let me know, please.

2.22.2018 Another Lattice Creation

I had so much fun making the other one, and I wanted to make this one today.  I really like the look of this card, even though it is a little fragile.

The flowers are actually from the Merry and Bright Gina K. Christmas kit.  The poinsettias look quite different when stamped with pink ink and a small amount of  Stickles are added to the flower centers.
Much more Spring like and I am definitely ready for that! Thank you for visiting my blog!  I read all comments, and am thankful for any you leave!

Wed. 2-21-2018 Two for Today

I finished up making two cards today.  The shaving cream one was started yesterday and finished this afternoon. Then I went ahead and using the lattice pieces that I die cut, I got pretty creative with the floral card.  I hope you let me know your thoughts, ok?

Two totally different cards to see today.

Thank you for checking my blog today!

2.20.2018 A Shaving Cream Background

After watching Gina daughter's video using shaving cream, I just had to make a card.  I hadn't done this technique in many years, and you should try it.  It is so much fun!

 I made another as well!

Here is my card for F4A417 Go West, using Theresa Momber's "Out West" stamp set, from Gina K. Designs. I colored with Copics after stamping the image with Memento.

Mon. Feb. 19, 2018 To Brighten a Gloomy Day

  I played around this morning and using this patterned paper and adding a silk flower made me have a happier time on a gloomy day, here in Wisconsin.  Maybe the sun is shining in your neck of the woods! 
Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Friday, Feb. 9, 2018 We got a lot of snow!

More than 8" of snow fell last night.  It sure looks different than yesterday morning. It is definitely a crafting day as I have no intention of driving anywhere today!

Here are my latest creations from yesterday, that has me wishing for Spring time.

 So glad you stopped for a peak.

Wed. 2.7.2018 Two for Today

I made two cards today, one for the MOD Squad challenge and one for the Split Coast SC683 Sketch.

Thinking this is the best thing about a snowy day and you are inside staying warm and crafting! 

Here are those 2 cards!  I took out my Royal Sovereign, to do some foiling.  It has been quite a while and I wanted to make sure I could still do it.  So happy that it worked out beautifully.  I have read that many of you were having issues.  I did let the unit preheat for about 30 minutes, and I did run my foils through 2-3 times to be sure it was doing a good job!

Take your time, and be patient!

Tues. 2-6-2018 Hubby's Birthday today -SC681

Today would have been my late Hubby's birthday, so I created this card in his memory with many hearts.  I used sketch SC681 from Split Coast Stampers, which I turned to be horizontal. I added rhinestone gems to the hearts, because he was the light of my life, and will always have my heart.

Mon 2.5.2018 Get Well with Snowflakes

I  punched lots of snowflakes out today and decided to stick them onto a piece of black CS that I could then make into a Get Well card for a friend!  This is my creation.

Sun. 2.4.2018 More Texture with Black and White Fun

Lots of texture,  silk flowers, and a brad with some gingham ribbon- to use up a lot of scraps that were on my desk.

Sat. Feb. 3. 2018 Black & White Fun

  Happy Saturday,

 I was playing with all sort of scraps, ribbons and a image from the Frisky Felines stamp set from Gina K and Alicia Krupsky and came up with this card.  The cat images in this set are so much fun to work with.

Fri. Feb. 2, 2018 Quilted Fun

Today, I met someone that quilts, and I thought she'd get a kick out of receiving this card. Her husband is the fabulous technician that has kept our computers running smoothly for years.  I mailed it today so she will get it before Saturday, I hope.

I embossed the background with a favorite Cuttle Bug folder that I have had a very long  time.  The giraffe was colored with Copics and fussy cut, so I could pop it up with dimensionals. The image is from the Gina K Design "Genevieve Giraffe" stamp set by Beth Silaika.

Thank you for visiting and please leave me a comment, ok?

Thurs. 2.1.2018 SC682 Sketch

This is what I came up with following the Sketch 682 Challenge on Split Coast Stampers.

I used images from the Gina K Designs Stately Flowers 10 by Melanie Muenchinger.  The sentiment was from the Cottage Garden by Claire Brennan for Gina K.  I hung those little butterflies with pieces of wire, after I fussy cut the butterflies. 

Thank You for visiting and taking a look today!
