SAF leather card #2

I'm back again with my other leather look card to share. I am not as happy with how this one turned out. I had a hard time getting it to flatten out. I like how the "leather " piece turned out, but when I placed it on the card base it just made the base curl inward. I will try this again to see what I did wrong. Thanks for visiting me.

SAF Leather

Hello, Trying to share my cards for SAF before time runs out. I wanted to make more, but between working and kids I didn't have enough time. I loved how the paper turned out on this card, but I wish I had used black ink. I feel like it is hard to see the sentiment. I used the same technique for the flowers. Hoping to sneak in another card or 2 before the deadline.

Greetings ! Only a few more days left at my current job, ready for something new. I've been so busy training people to take over some of my duties that the 2 weeks is flying by. I'm ready to try something new. I'm sharing my DT card for CC&S  's double challenge this week. I did not watercolor anything on this card, can you believe it?  But I did dip the pink flowers in water (does that count)  and then crumple them up.I hope you will play along with us.

CCC #20

Greetings ! I'm stopping in to share my DT card for Christmas Card Challenges. Our theme this challenge is colorful glass ornaments . I had a few of these SSS watercolor panels left from last Christmas , I was happy to find I hadn't colored this one. It fits this challenge perfectly. I added some glossy accents to all the ornaments , not that it showed up on the photo. Thanks for stopping by, off to check out what everyone else made. Be back soon.

CC&S #237

Hello ! It's been an eventful week since I last posted. Follow up with rheumatologist went better than expected, might be a false positive (fingers crossed ) , weight loss -14 lbs, and I got a new job closer to home.  So lots to celebrate here. I watercolored my 3 panels instead of using paper... but then I watercolor everything these days. I hope no one minds the wonky shapes, i kind of like it this way. More organic looking. I hope you will play along , I love seeing other crafters take of sketches.

Hello! Welcome back. I"m sharing my DT card for CAS Colours and Sketches color challenge. These colors have a great summer feel to them. As usual I chose to watercolor with them. I like to have lots of thank you's on hand . I think people don't send them out enough. I'm sending this one to my dad's girlfriend (funny i still call her that since Dad passed 6yrs ago ) for my birthday gift.  I hope you will join us.

CCC #19

Hello! I'm popping in to share this card for Christmas Card Challenges. This week's theme is snowflakes. I stamped my images ( all PTI ) in versa mark ink and dusted them with blue and white pearle ex . I always have such a difficult time getting good pictures of shimmery cards, anyone else ? Thanks for stopping by.

CC&S #235

Hello! I hope your Tuesday is going well. I've been busy getting the boys ready to go back to school. My hubby took them camping this weekend , so I had plenty of time to sort over their stuff, purge out , and clean . I am planning to re-organize my craft area this weekend. I started already, I picked up one of those 3 tiered rolling carts to organize the tools i use the most. I came across a few stamps I forgot I had, Like this lovely floral. This might be one of my favorite sketches for CAS Colours and Sketches. I can see myself using this one again soon. Be back soon.

CC&S 234

Hello! It's tuesday again and you know what that means ? I have a card to share for the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge. I struggled with this card alot. I've been a bit detached from my crafting lately, I recently found out (on my birthday, how crappy is that? ) that I have a rare disease . I currently have very mild symptoms. So hubby decided we should drastically change our diets... no dairy, no caffeine, no sugar, no wheat, no corn.... so as of now I'm a rabbit. So I'm a bit off. If you know me you know I loved my diet pepsi. But I will get thru this without it. I will keep crafting, it keeps me sane. I hope to see you soon.
