CC&S #247

Hello! I'm back with a card to share for this week's double challenge. I am not sure how I feel about this card, I feel like it needs something. I might still be in my funk?Hopefully I can get out of that before next month or we will have problems.  I spent time with mom today , we went to the cemetery to see my sister ( Halloween will be 22yrs ) , then we had lunch at our favorite spot and did some treasure hunting.I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with for this challenge.

October challenge

Hello, I'm last minute with my card for the October challenge at The Ton's challenge blog. I just picked up this stamp and was waiting for it to arrive so I could play along. I can see myself using this stamp lots. I blended some distress oxide for the background, I wanted something subtle so not to take away from the tea cup . Did you know I collect teacups and saucers? Well now you do .I have a bunch , I have to get a bigger china cabinet for them all. I might even have one similar to this stamp. Thanks for stopping by.

PTI October blog hop

Blog Hop Inspiration
Hello! I was so happy to discover my new stamps on the porch when I got home from work today, just in time for the blog hop too. I watercolored the background like one of the inspiration images , and stamped my sentiment on velum. I ended up going over my watercolor with a little distress oxide to make it more visible after the velum was placed on top. I have several relatives that will enjoy receiving a Christmas card with this sentiment on it, so I plan to make several using this sentiment. I'm really enjoying the year of Psalms series, I hope it goes for a couple years. Well off to hop along and check out what everyone else created. Thanks for visiting.

CCC #24

Hello! It's been a crazy couple of days for me. My mom is out of town for a week, leaving me to care for her husband who is disabled from a brain injury , trying to get my kids schedules straight( she is better at it than me) , plus hubby has been having issues with his shoulder and he is not sleeping well (hence I'm not either) . I completely forgot to link my card to the challenge blog for Christmas Card Challenges. I hope my fellow DT girls forgive me. I love this sentiment in gold, so it was perfect for this challenge. I think i used the same sentiment for the last challenge, OOPS! I hope you will play along with us this week.

CC&S #244

Hello! I'm back with a fun card to share for this week's sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches. I opted to flip the sketch , I need to replenish my birthday card supply. I a birthday stamp from SSS and my zig markers to watercolor the balloons.I know this isn't my usual work. I haven't been crafting much recently because I was really feeling bad about my job change. I left a job I had enjoyed (I felt I had to because of some things going on in the office) , took a new job closer to home , only to find out they told me things that were not true to get me to come there and they had a scary turn over, so I was very upset by all of this. I have worked in this field over 25 years and felt very lost. I have since quit the new job, YEAH! I went back to the practice I used to work for , but in a different office closer to home. I work with different doctors, different co-workers and a different boss. It is so much better, but I'm not myself yet. Job stress isn't for the faint of heart. Thanks for stopping by.

CCC #23

Happy Sunday to you. I was excited by this week's inspiration photo. My good friend loves purple, so I always make her a special purple Christmas card every year...Here it is. I used a stamp for MFT for the snowflakes, sentiment is one I picked up from a de-stash... so I have no clue who it's by. Have you shopped a de-stash yet? I love them . I have a couple of ladies I follow on Instagram that de-stash on a regular basis. If fact all of the stamps I used today are de-stash stamps. It helps my add to my supplies without breaking the bank. I hope you will play along too.

CC&S #243

Hello! I'm back with a card to share for the CC&S color challenge. I was thinking of making a fall card, since these colors are perfect for fall. But I decided that there might be a lot of fall cards, so why not make something different. I'm out of sympathy cards right now, so I made a few using this layout /stamp/die . I love how these flowers look in the pumpkin color, you don't see enough of that color in flowers. I hope you have a great tuesday.
