CC&S #261

Hello! I'm finally down to the end of my home remodeling projects , YEAH!!! I'm now able to craft some more! I created 2 cards for this challenge, because I LOVED this stamp and wanted to try it outlined stamped and no-line coloring. This week's sketch was a great one I can see myself using it again real soon. I sure hope you will join in the fun, I love to see what everyone else comes up with. Be back soon.

CC&S #260

Hello! It's been a very eventful last week here, not all good.  We are still mid remodel in the basement( yikes the dust) , working, and unfortunately I had to replace my car. I took it in for a recall on the air bags and the dealership shattered the screen to the navigation, rendering it as well as several other things un-usable. Long story  short it, the replacement was as much as the value of the car, dealership took good care of me , so I upgraded. I did end up with the car I've wanted for a long time, so I guess that is good. I'm sharing this fun card for this week's color challenge over at CAS Colours and Sketches. I long for warmer weather as It's currently snowing a lot , but in 2 days it's supposed to be 62 degrees... Chicago weather, go figure. I can't wait to see what fun cards you all will made this week. Be back soon.

CC&S #259

Hello! Happy Tuesday! Since it's the day before Valentine's day I made my card a Valentine. I have been so busy with home remodeling this last week I almost forgot to share my card. OOPS! We repainted our living room, new furniture and rug, no on to the basement family room. Hubby is ripping out old carpet and putting in? , he hasn't made up his mind yet. So I've hardly had time for cardmaking (frowny face) . It will be all finished soon enough and then I'll have time again. I opted for some ink blending hearts for the striped background, I couldn't get mine straight (i threw a lot of attempts in trash) , some die cut hearts and a simple sentiment. Now back to work, see you soon.

Hello! I'm back with another card to share for CAS Colours and Sketches challenge. This week's colors were alot of fun to play with, I thought floral right away and expect lots of florals for those playing along. I used the painted rose stamp set from Altenew, I previously used this set in another challenge in a different color and I knew I would find another use for it soon. Thanks for visiting my blog today, have a great day.

Love U

Hello! I'm popping in quickly (waiting for end table to dry so I can paint it) with a card to share for the Paper Players challenge #379 Valentines. I made a bunch of Valentine's for my coworkers so this challenge came at a good time for me as I was just getting around to photographing them. I photograph all my cards so I can refer back to previous cards for inspiration. I die cut my hearts for gold paper and a piece I alcohol inked. Now back to painting. Thanks for visiting

Swoon challenge

Hello! Starting my busy Saturday already tired! My son had 6 friends over last night and they were noisy and kept me awake. I used the opportunity to make a bunch of Valentine cards to take to work on monday. I'm sharing this one for the Swoon challenge @ CASology, as it's the most CAS of the ones I made last night. Now off to get donuts for said teenagers , then grocery shopping before the snow gets here, take teenager to get permit(need prayers for that) , make soup, and finally paint the living room.... see why I'm already tired ? Be back soon.
