Make it Monday #38

Hello,  I'm back with a take on PTI's Make it Monday #38 challenge.  Sadly i do not own any of the fabulous PTI impression plates(sigh!) , so i used a sizzix folder.....spent all my money on stamps and dies. I used the new aqua mist ink here, love it! i can not wait for the rest of the colors to come out. Thanks for visiting me today. Sam

Tuesday Trigger

It's me again, trying to get in a few extra challenges this week.... i work alot of hours and usually come home really tired so when i get time i try to squeeze in a few extra challenges, hence the 3 posts today.... so here's my take on this week's "Tuesday Trigger" . The colors just seemed very falls like to me, so i optied for a fall card here. Thanks for stopping by, Sam

PTI October blog hop

Greetings,  Happy tuesday to you all who hopped in . This is my take for this months blog hop.  I have been making tons of fall themed cards and wanted to make something other than a fall card......err truth be told my pti order arrived today and i was dying to use the goodies in the box.  Fellow pti addicts, have you ever added up what you spend in the wonderful stamps, inks, paper, ribbons or dies that you simply must have? Well i did tonight before i posted this, just because i noticed how many invoices i had..... so far i've spent $718.00  this year( hangs head in shame)  I think an intervention is greatly needed.  I knew i had alot of stuff, but really ? Wow i have it bad . So to Nicole Heady.... remember those of us who are helping those cuties of your's with the college fund... hehe Sam

Another friday night of crafting.......

TGIF everyone!!!! yeah i made it to friday.  It was a stressful week.  So to un-wind i like to shop and craft.... ordered myself some new stamps, can never have enough and than created some cards. Now feeling much better.  This little number is for the friends with flair challenge @ Unity  and Cas-ual friday's # 25.  I used my copic markers to color the image in and rubbed a little pearl ex over the moon(not sure if it shows up) to make it stand out more.  I plan on using this for dh's cousin Jenny who after years of trying is having not one, but 2 girls soon.  Have a great weekend, i'll be back soon.

Our creative corner's transparent challnge

Greetings from outside the windy city, where it's very windy and rainy today. Thought i might have seen a house blow by earlier... LOL. So while i still have power i'm posting my card for Our Creative Corner's transparencies challenge.  The transparency is over the stamped image(hope you can see it, kind of hard to photograph).  I wanted it to look like a framed portrait hanging on the wall. thanks for stopping by, now i'm off to bundle up. Sam

Tuesday Trigger

Hello, happy sunday to you. Here is my take on moxie fab's tuesday trigger "finses the dress" .  I realised after that the metal thank you charm doesn't photgraph well.  Stamps are pti, i used versa mark and rubbed grey chalk over it, the ribbon is cream seambinding... since i had no grey i used a copic marker to change the color.  I ws pleased with the end result.  Sam

Hopeful that with everyone's help she got what was needed.  I thought this was cheerful enough to bring a smile to soemone's face.... i hope. Have a great night all. Sam
