Th. 11.29.2018 MOD Squad Challenge

The challenge this time is to use a critter on our creation.  Here is mine.  Three critters using an image from Gina K.'s Spring Fling stamp set, by Beth Silaika.  I colored these little critters with Copic markers.  Some grosgrain ribbon and a sentiment finished this card, to have a Happy Hoppy.

11.24.2018 Birthday Tag

I needed to make a birthday tag for Seize the Birthday Challenge.  I needed to make this one for someone who has their birthday and Christmas the same week!  So I combined the 2 occasions. The penguin was colored with Copics and fussy cut. Little sentiments made it a Merry Birthday tag!

11.19. 2018 J.U.G.S. 467 Color Week Challenge

Here is my card for the Color Challenge at J.U.G.S. 467.  to use yellow, orange and turquoise! I made a non traditional Christmas card.  The colors are bright and totally not Red and Green.  The ornament is on a die cut frame, that I cut out with  my Big Sister machine from Cheery Lynn.  I colored the ornament with Copics after I cut it out.
Thanks for visiting today.

Fri. 11.16. 2018 'Tis the Season

 I came up with a Christmas card today, since 1" of snow put southern Wisconsin in the spirit of the season this morning. It sure didn't last long though as almost everything has melted already.  I heard that a little more snow is expected tonight!
 The circle and the background design are from Melanie's Holiday Frame stamp set from 2016.  The reindeer stamp is a freebie I received as a win from Pink and Main, which I colored with Copic markers. I added a touch of DP and a gem above the sentiment.

Are you in the planning stages for Thanksgiving 2018 already?

Wed. 11.14.2018 A Good Luck B-Day Card


 A good luck shamrock birthday card to share with you today.  I had a good time making this one, as these were my high school colors at St. Patrick Academy. Since I was a member of the last class to graduate before the school closed and was torn down- this is very special to me.

I hope you click on the link above to read a little about the school  see a sketch of the building itself.

Sat.. 11.10.2018 Dream Big Tag


I was playing in my Craft Room today, doing some fussy cutting and using some very old dp, from years ago. Tags that motivated the start of this promise to myself.  It was a lot of fun just playing without having any restrictions! I am going to try and use some of the dp that has been stored for a very long time. Let's see how long I can keep doing this. This is Bella Elephant by Beth Silaika for Gina k. Designs.  I have been creating cards for a super long time now and am still enjoying the creativity!

Thurs. 11.8.2018 Just for Fun

I whipped this one up yesterday as I was just playing around.  It was made just for fun and not for  any particular challenge.  I am extremely happy with all texture , to make this a fun Christmas card.  I love the way the all the CB Swiss Dots  reminds me of falling snow, as a background to the house.  Let me know what you think, please.

Thank you for visiting!

Wed. 11.7. 2018 SC 722 and Double D Wishes

This is the second card made this morning.  I will take a photo of the 1st one and add it to my blog tomorrow, since it is not for any particular challenge.

I decided to work with the Split Coast SC722 to create this Christmas card today.  I added patterned paper and twine to give a festive look, to the Holiday card. I heat embossed the sentiment from GKD (Claire Brennan)'s Noel Stamp set, along with some topaz colored gems to the bottom. This also works for the Double D Wishes challenge.

Here is the sketch.
