One more card

Hello! I'm back with one more card for The Ton's tic-tac-toe challenge. I used the same stamp as my last card, but in a different color. I wanted to try this flower in white. I stamped the flower in antique linen and then use a white watercolor over  that . I wanted the lines to show, but not stand out. Thanks for stopping by. See you soon.

CC&S 225

Hello, happy tuesday to you. I am happy to have a short week at work, as I'm sure many of you are. We spent the holiday weekend catching up on chores at home, so exciting. I did sneak in some crafting time. I created this for CC&S 225 , a double challenge. I admit I really struggled with this one , but in the end I'm pleased with the outcome. I hope you will join us, see you soon.

Holiday stamping

Hello! I've been very busy this weekend. We stained our fence, cleaned the garage, yard work, cleaned the house, lots of laundry, and I still found time to stamp. YEAH!!! Playing along with The Ton's tic-tac-toe challenge. I chose the bottom row... no-line , non-rectangular card, water color. I am very limited on my stamp selection ( hopefully not for long) so I don't have a lot of sentiments yet. I was thinking about making this a sympathy, as recently I've needed several. Thanks for stopping by, see you soon.

CC&S 224

Hello, hope your week is going well so far. I am less busy now that my son only has 1 afterschool activity. This leaves my more time to create things. I'm starting on graduation cards , I will need several. I liked this sketch because it works well for this small die I've been wanting to play with. I hope you will join us.

CCC #13

Hello, happy sunday. I'm recovering my a craft show I did yesterday. I sold some of my cards. Being of a few design teams , means I always have more cards than I can use. So when I can I try to sell off my extra stock. This week's Christmas Card Challenge features a die cut wreath. I hope you will play along with us. Now off to soak my feet... I was on them all day yesterday.

Pin-sights challenge

Hello, I'm finally home and have a chance to share this card for the Classroom's Pin-sights challenge. When I saw the pins this month I knew I wanted to do the hydrangea in purple. I love this stamp , it's so pretty.  I love Pinterest ( kind of an addict 30,000 pins ) , so this is a challenge I will embrace whole heartedly . Well now off to bed, it's been a long day and I need to warm up after standing outside in the cold for a track meet. See you soon.

Hello, hope your week has started out well. I'm really running around these days. My youngest is in track and baseball , I work 40 plus hours and I'm trying to get ready for a craft show I'll be doing later this month. I chose to flip this week's sketch , I just liked it better this way. I really had a hard time envisioning the end result for this one. Numerous attempts in trash . I am pleased with this one. Now off to make more.

MIM #283

Final card for the day, promise. I created this for a co-workers birthday. Playing along with Papertrey Ink's MIM challenge, water color wash. I watercolored the background paper and then added this gorgeous die cut and a sentiment. Simple, didn't take much time (except for the paper to dry) and I'm pleased with how it turned out.I plan to make a few more using this design and other colors and sentiments. Thanks for stopping by.

Still crafting away

Hello, I've been busy most of the day crafting. Enjoying the quiet time alone after a busy week. I'm playing along and trying out for the design team over at AAA cards. As soon as I saw their inspiration photo I thought of this stamp set. I thought about doing more colorful feathers, but settled on a tone on tone color . It just looked less busy, more clean and simple. Wish me luck! see you soon.

CCC #12

Hello, happy sunday to you. I hope you weekend is going well. I hope to find time to relax.... my youngest has us on the run lately. He is in track at school and a local little league baseball team and they over lap most days. I wish I had the energy my 12yr old does. Today's card is for Christmas Card Challenges. I rarely use my cricit , it collects more dust than anything. I used a Christmas cartridge for the tree and added some ruby slipper nuvo drops for ornaments. I hope you will join us. Now I'm off to take a nap.
