CC&S #294

Hello! I'm popping in to share my card for this week's color challenge. Patricia picked these colors because October is breast cancer awareness month, so I had to use the pink ribbon. I currently don't have any friends fighting the disease, so I'll save it. I've had a stressful few weeks with my mom, she had foot surgery, had lots of extra bleeding after the surgery, developed C-diff from the antibiotics, and then her husband (who had a brain injury some years ago) had a grand maul seizure. So I've had to call the ambulance twice in less than a week for her and stepfather. I've been extra cranky! and then today 5 coworkers called off. It was a mess, I came home and put on my pj's and will be in bed as soon as I finish this post. Sorry for the whining... thanks for visiting me today.

Simply Create #143

Hello! I'm stopping in to share my card for this month's challenge... shaker cards. I'm not one to make shaker cards, but I recently picked up the MTF card kit that had these handy little shaker cups to make it so much easier. I'm currently hard at work on holiday cards of all sorts.... hoping to be ready to go by Thanksgiving. Thanks for stopping by today.

CC&S #292

Hello! I'm back hosting one more challenge for CC&S. I chose one of my go to color combos, if you follow me you my have noticed I used variations of these colors often. I'm a water sign ,so watery colors really appeal to me. The stamp I used is a SSS/Concord and 9th stamptember exclusive that sold out lightening fast and I was lucky enough to get one . I have already made this guy in several other colors. Thanks for stopping by today.

The Holly and the Ivy #37

Hello! I'm back to share another Christmas card for the Holly and the Ivy anything goes challenge. This was fairly simple to mass produce. The snowflakes are a background stamp from hero arts , and the sentiment is from PTI.  I like to make extra Christmas cards to send to senors in nursing homes, anyone else participate in the lasting hearts card call? I work in eye care, specifically retina... most of my patients are in their 80's -90's. So I know the impact of simple gestures like a card in the mail. Thanks for stopping by today.

CC&S #291

Hello! Fall is just starting here, and my allergies are suffering badly. I spent a good deal of my saturday outdoors watching my boys run. My oldest had his best time ever at his XC meet and my youngest ran his 1st 5k in the evening with my husband and had a great time. I'm sharing my card for this week's sketch challenge. I've enjoyed pushing myself to try new things with my card designs. Thanks for stopping by today.
