Hello! Welcome back , I've been trying to come up with new Christmas card ideas for the supplies I have already... but this stamp was calling my name. I plan to try new things or color combos with some of my older supplies. I have plenty to work with, just need some fresh ideas. For the watercoloring on this card I used my distress inks. I hope you will play along with us.

Hello! I hope you all are doing well. I've been struggling with the mess I made in my craft area. I need to set aside a few hours to do a deep cleaning and organizing. How long have I been saying that? too long. So for today's card I used an embossing folder for some texture . I like how it adds a little punch to the card without being too busy, this is a CAS challenge. I hope you will play along with us .

Hello! I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. There has been some new rioting/looting in Chicago ( I live in NW Indiana very close , if you look at a map where Illinois and Indiana meet at lake Michigan that's me)So it's been a bit stressful, add in a monster thunderstorm and getting rear ended on my drive home it makes for a really bad day.  Luckily I was able to come home and craft away my day. I made this colorful card for this week's sketch challenge. I hope you will play along with us .

Hello! I've been trying to get a jump start on my Christmas cards. I picked up the TE Baby it's cold outside kit and have been enjoying making lots of cards. I'm a sucker for all things snowman ! We have a tree in our dining room with just snowman ornaments at Christmas. I'm thinking with the state of the world right now, we all might be sending extra Christmas cards . So I need to be ready. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! I hope everyone is doing well. I've been working on organizing my basement, purged out a bunch of stuff, sold some, and tossed some. It's a work in progress right now, but it's getting better. I'm going through all my holiday bins to purge out things from those too. My goal is to put in some lower cabinets and a counter top on the side I use to craft (plus take over a little extra) . I'd like to make room to have a larger table to work at. One day! So for this week'color challenge I used this I used budding beauties, sprinkled with kindness and petite eucalyptus stamps and dies from the Greetery. I'm crazy about this watering can, I'll be making more with it soon. Thanks for stopping by today.
