The Holly and the Ivy #32

Hello! I'm re-visiting an old card idea I used some years ago . I changed up the colors, but the basic layout is the same. Do you ever do that? Sometimes I like a layout so much I'll create several cards in various colors . I have lots of friends that enjoy religous cards at Christmas time so I always try to make a few of those too. Thanks for taking time to stop by today.

Hello! I'm stopping in with a quick share for this week's sketch challenge at CC&S. I am really really last minute with this card and I threw it together with some scraps I had laying on my table .... no joke! I've been in a bit of a mojo slump the last few weeks.Hopefully it reappears soon! Maybe checking out what cute cards everyone else made will help. Off to do just that, thanks for stopping by.

Smell the sea

Hello! I'm stopping in with a share for the CAS Watercolor challenge. Since the theme is Ocean I choose this sentiment from IO , it's one that really speaks to me. I will be sending this card to my cousin , he works in the cruise industry so I always send him sea or boat cards. Quick post tonight as I've just returned home from yoga class and am very sleepy. thanks for stopping by today. 


CC$S #277

Hello! I have had a busy few days. My mom was out of town so I had to keep an eye on my Step Father (who had a brain injury 16yrs ago) , he is a hand full and gave me a hard time. Now that she is home I can relax. I wanted to make something fun and playful with these colors, so butterflies it is. I love to be inspired by my fellow DT members cards , as well as all of you who play along each week. It really helps each of us to think outside of the box. Thanks for stopping by today.

Challenge #31

Hello! I'm back with a card to share for the Holly and the Ivy Christmas challenge. It's been really cool here recently, lots of rain . The weather has me feeling like a snowflake card this week. I used distress oxides over glossy paper and the stamps are PTI (snowflakes) and SSS (sentiment). I like blue backgrounds for snow cards ,but I need to try other colors. Thanks for stopping by today.

CC&S #276

Welcome! Thanks for stopping by today. I'm sharing my card for this week's sketch challenge. I wanted a more interesting background for this sketch. I used broken china and peacock feather oxide inks over glossy paper, then some distress glaze , and buffed with a dry cloth. I added a simple birthday sentiment and that was it.    I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

Thanks a ton

Hello! It's been a very busy weekend here, my oldest got his driving permit, errands, laundry that never ends, and got together with a longtime friend. I finally got a chance to play along with this months challenge at CAS watercolor , also playing along with the Create along with us challenge at Papertrey Ink . I love all things ocean so this challenge really spoke to me. The whale and sentiment are from PTI , I used both distress ink and distress oxide ink for the background. I hope to make 2 more for this challenge before it ends as I have a few more ideas I'd like to try. Thanks for stopping by today

Welcome back ! I'm sharing this week's color challenge card . Wei from our DT choose colors that work perfectly for Flowers!!!! Thanks Wei. I've had this floral stamp ( modern peonies by Wplus9 ) on my desk waiting for the right color challenge. These colors and this stamp seemed like the perfect match. I'll be interested to see who else makes floral cards . Thanks for stopping by.

Simply Create too #139

Hello! Welcome back for another fun challenge at Simply Create Too. This month the theme is "for a male" . Now I struggle with cards for men badly. I lean towards florals or butterflies, so if I can't use those elements I'm lost. So I'm really looking forward to all the entries this months, I know I'll find plenty of inspiration. Thanks for stopping by today.
