CC&S #296

 Hello! I'm back with a fun card to share for our double challenge. I've been working on holiday cards recently, and have enjoyed playing with this die set. I chose to flip the sketch  to allow me  more room . I adore snowman , so this die was a must have for me. I've been trying to craft a bit everyday to relieve a bit of stress, my mom is still in the hospital recovering from her stroke. She is getting much better. Thanks for stopping in today.

The Holly and Ivy #38

Hello! I'm plugging along with my Christmas cards. I have recently purchased a few stand alone Christmas dies and wanted to play with those.  I love snowmen , I have 1 whole Christmas tree just of snowmen. I plan to make a few different versions with this die. It has been wonderful to be a bit ahead this year with my holiday cards and shopping. Please join us for our "anything goes challenge". Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! It's been another very stressful week for me and I was happy to be able to have a few minutes to create. If you follow me, you know my mom has been having some health issues recently, well this week she suffered a small stroke. She is doing a bit better now, but it was pretty scary for a couple of days. I am extremely close with my mom, I talk to her twice a day , every day. So this has been very hard for me. I feel like I threw this card together too quickly. I used some scraps left from last weeks card, a snowflake die from SSS and a few sequins to finish it off. Now off to sleep. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! I'm popping in to share my card for this week's color challenge. Patricia picked these colors because October is breast cancer awareness month, so I had to use the pink ribbon. I currently don't have any friends fighting the disease, so I'll save it. I've had a stressful few weeks with my mom, she had foot surgery, had lots of extra bleeding after the surgery, developed C-diff from the antibiotics, and then her husband (who had a brain injury some years ago) had a grand maul seizure. So I've had to call the ambulance twice in less than a week for her and stepfather. I've been extra cranky! and then today 5 coworkers called off. It was a mess, I came home and put on my pj's and will be in bed as soon as I finish this post. Sorry for the whining... thanks for visiting me today.

Simply Create #143

Hello! I'm stopping in to share my card for this month's challenge... shaker cards. I'm not one to make shaker cards, but I recently picked up the MTF card kit that had these handy little shaker cups to make it so much easier. I'm currently hard at work on holiday cards of all sorts.... hoping to be ready to go by Thanksgiving. Thanks for stopping by today.

CC&S #292

Hello! I'm back hosting one more challenge for CC&S. I chose one of my go to color combos, if you follow me you my have noticed I used variations of these colors often. I'm a water sign ,so watery colors really appeal to me. The stamp I used is a SSS/Concord and 9th stamptember exclusive that sold out lightening fast and I was lucky enough to get one . I have already made this guy in several other colors. Thanks for stopping by today.
