Oh what fun!

Hello! Sneaking away for my mom duties a few minutes to share this card I made for the anything goes challenge at The Holly and the Ivy. I tend to favor green and red for my Christmas cards and I love to use classic holiday images. Not to say I don't like llamas , and fun images like that , but I usually lean toward the classics...Santa, snowmen, reindeer, etc. I'm throwing my hat in the ring for their DT call, I love the idea of helping inspire others to create their Christmas cards all year round. Thanks for stopping by back to laundry, dishes, and baking that carrot cake for tomorrow.

Hello! I'm dropping in with my DT card for CAS Colours and Sketches. This week we have a sketch challenge . I was aiming for a soft spring look with this card. I'm hoping for some spring like weather here soon. My spring cleaning with well under way here, just don't expect the craft area to be clean... I'm a messy crafter. Thanks for stopping by today.

Holiday Blessings

Hello! Stopping by with a card to share for the 1st CAS Christmas Card Challenge "Holly" . I created 2 cards and am sharing them both here. Card 1 made using distress inks to watercolor the Holly image, card 2 I used distress oxide inks to watercolor the image. I'm favoring card 1 because the colors are more vibrant. Thanks for stopping by today

Wednesday challenge

Hello! Happy Wednesday to you all. I've had a busy week with lots going on, fundraiser events to attend, swim meets , track meets, work, dog had to go to ER vet (spider bite ,swollen face) , little sleep. I did find a bit of time to craft. I've been trying to come up with more "Man birthday" cards.. it's really hard! So this week's challenge at Watercooler Wednesday is perfect , also playing along with SSS work it Wednesday. I hope to find some inspiration also. Thanks for stopping by today

CC&S #264

Hello! I'm back with this tasty little number! I love ice cream, frozen yogart, italian ice... all of it! This is my card for the CAS Colours and Sketches color challenge. I have been waiting for just the right color challenge to break out this stamp set (Concord & 9th "here's the scoop") , yes I have some stamps I haven't used yet. If you read my post a few challenges ago.. I refer to my stamps as my collection... no idea how many I own, but it's ALOT!!! and guess what I just ordered more! Someone stage an intervention please. LOL! I sure hope I'm not the only one. I am excited to see what everyone has come up with , and of course see what fun stamps they used.

More crafting

Hello! I'm back to share a card I created for a card making class I teach to a friend and her mother (card I taught was the green one) . I was inspired by the technique Jennifer McGuire used with distress oxides and water. I taught that for the class, but when I got home I played around with adding color back to the areas I removed color from. I'm pleased with the outcome. Playing along with The Flower challenge "Anything Goes" and Watercooler Wednesday  Thanks for stopping by today.

Peep filled marshmallow hugs

Hello! I'm back again with a fun card to share for the SSS Monday challenge "Spring/Easter"and Just Add Ink's challenge . I've been busy crafting away this weekend, hoping to find some more time to craft today. I used some Hero Arts prisma glitter to "sugar coat" the bunnies to make them look more peep like. I wish I could get it to some up better in this photo. Thanks for stopping by today.

Weekend cardmaking

Warm Wishes

Greetings on this blustery Wednesday evening.I am sharing a card I made for a couple of challenges playing along with Merry Monday #281 (inspiration photo) and The Holly and the Ivy 's anything goes challenge. I love to make my Christmas cards throughout the year so I am not stressed when November rolls around and rushing to make 50 cards at once. The only stress I have is do I have enough stamps.. Thanks for stopping in tonight, now off to bed so I can poke people in the eyes tomorrow. Yep I get paid to do that all day.

CC&S #263

Hello! I'm back again with a card to share for this week's sketch challenge. I just recently picked up this stamp ( Kind Soul -Wplus 9) and wanted to use it for this sketch , the die is Pretty Pink Posh.  I like making Thank You's because I always use them the most. I've been trying to do some sort of purge to my craft supplies, so I have way more than I have room for. Hopefully I'll be able to part with some. Thanks for stopping in today.

CC&S #262

Hello! I'm popping in to share my card for this week's color challenge at CAS Colour and Sketches. I spent a few days pouring over my stamp collection (yep that's how I refer to the vast amounts of stamps I own) to find just the right one for these colors. I ended up using the same stamp set I used last week, SSS Showers and Flowers. It might be my new favorite! This was a lot of fun to watercolor. I did do a very light tan wash around the image to make it pop a bit more. I've been purging things in my house the last few weeks and I know I should hit my craft area, but it truly pains me to part with any of my stamps. I love them all! So stay tuned if I can actually do it, it really needs a good purge or maybe I'll just take over more of our basement? we don't really need a laundry room do we?

Anything goes

Hello! Hope you day is going well. It's my "friday" so I'm thrilled to have a 3 day weekend to craft and relax. Lots of recent home improvement projects have left me with a well organized and nice clean house, YEAH! So I plan to make some cards for a few challenges and maybe binge watch something on netflix. I am playing along with the SSS Wednesday challenge today. I love this tree stamp !! I made a bunch of these for my coworker who loves all tree things and the color green. I'm happy to report she LOVED them. I hope to make a few different versions of this card. Thanks for stopping by today.
