CC&S #242

Hello, glad you stopped by. I'm sharing my card for this week's sketch challenge over at CAS colours and sketches. I thought snowflakes as soon as I saw this sketch. I used a stamp/die set from MFT and broken china distress oxide . I'm happy with how this turned out. I am excited to see what everyone else comes up with. See you soon.

CCC # 22

Hello, happy Sunday to you all. This challenge's theme had me digging thru my supplies for just the right stamp. I noticed I need a few more religious sentiments and nativity images. There are some really good ones out there, I plan to pick up a couple. You can never have enough Christmas sentiments. I used a sentiment from PTI and the image is Hero arts. I look forward to seeing what others will be making this challenge. Thanks for stopping by.

CC&S 241

Hello, welcome back. I'm still trying to adjust to the new job, not really sure I like it. But that's a story for another time. I plan to make most of my upcoming challenge cards birthday cards, as I'm completely out.... how does that happen? This week's colors were fun to use on this stamp. It's from the Ton stamps. It's a border stamp , but I only used a small part of the stamp. I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with. Be back soon.

CC&S #240

Hello, It's Tuesday so that means I have a card to share for CAS Colours and Sketches weekly challenge. I played around with a few ideas for this sketch before settling on this card. I've have this stamp for months and really wanted to make fall cards. I have been playing along with the 30day coloring challenge and colored these images the other night , but wasn't feeling good so I didn't get around to my card until today. I hope you will play along with us, I love seeing everyone's creations.Have a great day.

CCC #21

Hello, welcome back. I'm sharing another card for the Christmas Card Challenge DT. This time the theme is "coookies " ..yum ! Oh wait I gave up sugar (yep I'm nuts , and a bit crabby ) so  this is the only cookies  I can have right now. It's getting closer to Christmas now, so I've started doubling up on my Holiday cards. I should be good to go by Thanksgiving. I hope you will play along. See you soon.

CC&S #239

Hello! Today I start my new job, not gonna lie I'm nervous. When I interviewed I noticed all the twenty somethings working there.... I'm old enough to be their mother. Hopefully they don't notice. I'm looking forward to having more time after work ( short commute) .I wonder what they will think of my ink stained fingers? This week's colors shouted Halloween to me right away. I inked my background and hills with distress oxides , I embossed the pumpkins, colored them with Zig markers and fussy cut them out. I am not the best fussy cutter. I used a black marker on the edges to hide that. I'm left handed , so I have a hard time with cutting. Thanks for stopping by.
