Hello! I hope everyone is doing well. This is our last challenge for 2021. We are to pick a previous sketch and make it a holiday card. I picked #417 to use. I made this card using a stencil from Taylored expressions and a sentiment die from Pinkfresh studio. I hope you all have a joyous holiday .

Greetings everyone. I hope you are all doing well. I had a busy evening, our little doggie was not using a back leg this evening, so off to the emergency vet we went. She has a sprained foot. Most likely from her leaf pile jumping adventures the day before. Yesterday I was in a rush to finish clearing our leaves (lots of trees on our lot) , leaf blower and one happy , crazy little dog running as fast as she could into the leaves. Well she overdid it. On to the card, pre-printed panel from Taylored expressions, foiled and then stenciled on this week's colours. These are my favorite, so easy and looks great in almost any color. Thanks for stopping in today.

Hello! I pushed the boundaries a bit with my take on this week's sketch. My circle isn't centered or to scale. I really wanted to use this stamp. It's from Taylored expressions. It was free with purchase , only i didn't purchase enough for it. I saw someone post this for sale and missed out, but someone in the post comments section messaged me she had one and would send it to me... free! She wouldn't even let me pay the postage. How sweet is that? It's nice that people are still willing to do nice things for others. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! I am happy I found the time to play along with this week's Color Throwdown challenge. I saw their turkey inspiration and had to create something. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and I love to create cards for it. I find there aren't enough turkey images or dies, so when i saw this one day i had to have it. Thanks for stopping by today.

Greetings all, I hope you are all doing well. I'm settling into the new job nicely. Still waiting for people to spit fire or heads to spin.. but that hasn't happened yet. My niece is getting better everyday too. For this week's card I decided to break out these printed panels you could foil after stenciling the colors on... my very 2st time foiling and I didn't mess it up . I'm going to try it again... might need lots more foil stuff. Thanks for popping by and have a fabulous week.

Welcome ! I hope you all are doing well. I've been working on plenty , getting ready to do a small craft show at my church in November. So I've been hard at work on Christmas cards for that. I am loving this new stencil trend right now, it really makes it so easy. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! I hope everyone is doing well. I've been dealing with a lot of extra stress in life the past month. I left my very stressful job, had shingles the last 2 weeks there, started the new job right away. 2 days before I started my new job my niece was placed in ICU with severe Covid (no vaccine, allergic to flu vaccine couldn't get it) she almost died upon admit, got a bit better, then dramatically worse and was placed on a ventilator , had a massive stroke, now has a tracheotomy and feeding tube. She is now Covid negative and in a stroke rehab facility. She lives outside of Nashville , her mother (my oldest sister) lives outside Chicago. But in happy news new job is going well. So much less stressful. Now on to the card which I'm sending to my niece. I loved this sunflower die and needed a project to put it on, this worked perfectly. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! I hope you are all doing well. I've been trying to catch up on my garden weeding between the rain we have been having and work. I tried a lot of new flowers this year and am pleased with how most of it is coming along. It's been so gloomy here this week I felt like making something really colorful to brighten my day.

Hello! I know it's the 6th of July, but this week's colors said fall to me. I've had this die floating around my desk for months waiting to use it. I think these colors worked out perfectly. I hope everyone had a safe a happy 4th , we stayed home and enjoyed the neighborhood fireworks and fire... yep one of the new neighbors ( moved in from another state where fireworks aren't legal) got a bit carried away with celebrating and burned his garage with the car in it to the ground, was able to see most of that safely from a lawn chair on my own yard. It was notably quiet the next night... hmm? Sorry if that sounds mean, I don't enjoy fireworks and work in a field where I've seen more than my fair share of eye injuries due to fireworks, I'd be ok if they were illegal. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! I hope you all are doing well. I've been trying to keep up with the pressures of life recently. Things have been very busy, not leaving much time for anything fun. I hope you will join us for another "Anything goes" challenge. I've challenged myself to use non-traditional colors for as many challenges as possible ... let's see how long I can keep it up.
Hello! I hope you all are doing well. Things have been turned upside down at work recently, so that has kept me busy. But perhaps more on that another time... I opted to flip the sketch, but then a sentiment didn't look good so I left it off. I often need blank note cards, so it will be useful in the future. Thanks for stopping in today.
