CC&S #302

Hello! I'm stopping in with a quick share for this week's sketch challenge. This week we've asked you to re-visit a previous sketch from this year and make it a seasonal card. I chose challenge #300. It seemed like a good one for falling snow. I die cut various size snowflakes and a sentiment lightly misted them with some perfect pearls water and lightly inked the paper to help them stand out more. This one would be great to mass produce. This has been a fun year of color and sketch challenges, looking forward to the next years challenges. We will be taking a short break to enjoy the holidays, so Merry Christmas to you all and see you in 2019.

Warm winter wishes.

Hello! It's been awhile since I've had time to share any of my cards. I'm playing along with Addicted to stamps and more "anything goes and SSS Monday challenge "warm Winter Wishes" , since my reindeer is wearing a plaid scarf I think it works. I love how this looks with the plaid paper, I need to buy more so I can make more of these. Thanks for stopping by today.

The Holly and Ivy #42

Hello! Here we are in December, who's got their cards out ? Not me. I have plenty done, but I signed up for a last minute craft show this weekend. So I will send out my cards from what I don't sell this weekend or I'll spend all day Sunday making more to send out. This is one I mass produced for the previous shows and it has proved to be a good seller. The stamp is from the Ton stamps. Anyone else stalk Effie's videos on you tube? Her coloring skills are fabulous. As always the challenge is an anything goes..so play along . Thanks for stopping by today.

CC&S #301

Hello! I'm sharing my card for this week's color challenge. We've asked you to re-visit our previous color challenges and make one a seasonal card. Mine is from challenge #288, I hosted that challenge and truth be told and made both cards at the same time. I wasn't happy with the background panel when  I made it for the witch card, it wasn't spooky feeling to me. So I made it a Christmas card and saved it for this challenge. It was great to be prepared early. I can't wait to see what color combos everyone picks, should be interesting. Thanks for stopping by.

CC&S #300

Hello! Welcome to our 300th challenge! I'm excited to be a part of it. This is my 2nd year as part of this DT and I really feel I've grown as a cardmaker since joining. I now push myself out of my comfort zone. Sometimes projects end up in the trash , but I keep trying. I really had fun with this card. I wanted to create a fun birthday card for our birthday challenge. I used the birthday ballons stamp and die set from PTI and SSS balloons die (larger balloon) , went with rainbow colors to add a festive feel to the card. I hope you will join in the fun and play along with us. Thanks for stopping by today.

The Holly and Ivy #41

Hello! Only a few more days until Thanksgiving. Who's ready to mail out their Christmas cards? ME!
It has helped so much to create cards all year long. I love snowmen , so this fun die from MFT was a must have for me.  I think I will try this die with another sentiment for a fun winter themed card in the future. I hope you play along with us. Thanks for stopping by today.

CC&S #299

Hello! I'm back with a card for this week's color challenge. Don't these colors scream Christmas to you? They did to me.I used a PTI stamp called botanical blocks IV.  I am very picky about my "Holly" stamps. My older sister's name was Holly, she was born on Christmas. This is my 23rd Christmas since her passing, still miss her. I hope you will play along with us. Thanks for stopping by.
