You are pawsome

Hello, hope you weekend is going well. I'm trying to sneak in some card making time, not much luck. Our furnace didn't turn on for the season and a new one is being put in. My crafting area is in the same room as the furnace, so not able to work. I created these cards really early this morning for the Case this sketch challenge #196. They were asking for cards to donate to a humane society.. so this is what i came up with.  Thanks for stopping by.

PTI blog hop

Hello, I've been waiting all day to be able to Hop along . I start work before the Blog hop starts and when I got home those pesky kids of mine wanted to be fed... so crafting had to wait. Since all my boys are occupied with some baseball game on TV i can play in my craft space. This is my take on the inspiration photo. Thanks for stopping by.

MIM #265

Hello , hope you had a nice day. I am sharing my card for this week's MIM.. dry brush technique. Since I own no re-inkers( i know how sad) , I used white and gold paint mixed together over the red cardstock. I am happy with how this turned out. Thanks for stopping by.

A fun color challenge

Hello, hope your monday went well. I had a very busy day at work, but it went by quickly. I came across a new color/sketch challenge blog the other day. , and guess what they are looking for new design team members.. exciting ! So I'm going to throw my hat in the ring and give it a try.. Here is my card for their color challenge. I saw these colors and thought Christmas card right away. One must make more , since i sold all the ones i made to hubby's co-workers. One of the perks of hubby working with all women. I am off to bed now, so i will be well rested for work tonight, no one wants the person poking them in the eye sleepy.

Late night crafting

Hello, I'm at it late this evening.  I was cleaning the basement , in hopes of expanding my craft area a bit. Fingers crossed hubby will see my vision . I created this card to the Curtain call Glittery gourds challenge. I just couldn't leave the pumpkins plain. Have a great night. 

Flipping the sketch

Hello, I saw this sketch and knew i wanted to make a thanksgiving card. When i was laying it out i flipped it . I think it looks better this way. Going to try to craft some more , have a nice night.

Hello , hope your week is going well. I have been really busy with my boys so far, so this is the 1st I've had to stamp anything. I am in need of male birthday cards, so i wanted to do something more masculine colors.  I am so thankful my sentiment covered my goof ... i didn't allow the ink to dry long enough before pulling the mask off and tore a tiny piece . thanks for visiting.
