Merry Monday #264

Hello, I'm back with a card to share for a new challenge to me, Merry Monday's challenge was Kraft and Red. I right away thought about this poinsettia stamp , I love this stamp. I embossed it in gold , then used some watercolors . I working hard at making lots of Christmas cards right now so playing along with Christmas challenges is what I need to inspire me. Thanks for visiting .

Sleigh bells ring are you listening ?

Hello, Stopping in with a card to share. I'm just starting to make more Christmas cards, trying to be ready early. I blended some distress oxides for my night sky, I wanted to add snow , but flicking white paint activated the distress inks. So I used a uniball white pen to make snow. The reindeer die is from SSS. I am playing along with AAA blending challenge and Happy Little stampers Anything goes Dies challenge. Thanks for visiting me.

Color throw down #467

Hello ! It's been a busy weekend for me. My youngest turned 13, so we took him to dinner friday night, he had friends over saturday, and today we had family for his birthday celebration. I made way too much fun, and stressed about the cleanliness of my house WAY too much.  So now that it's super clean after all the celebration I might relax a bit. So i'm taking time to play along with some challenges I enjoy, 1st up is the Color Throw Down challenge. I really liked the colors for this week's challenge and haven't had much time to play along lately. Thanks for stopping by.

CCC #25

Welcome back. This week the challenge at Christmas Card challenge called for you to use a cat .....just so you know I don't like cats at all. I had to go buy this stamp as I had nothing on hand. I made this as a mini-card to try something different. I hope you will join us, I'm sure someone out there likes cats more than I do and will love this theme. LOL!

Blog Hop for Dawn

We Love Dawn
Hello Lovely! One of my favorite sentiments from the Raspberry suite line , paired with my favorite floral stamp in Raspberry fizz of course. I tried to make a true "Dawn" card to send to her. I love that the stamping community has decided to do this for her. Dawn is one of my 1st blogs I started following when I began my card making journey. I was introduced to PTI through her blog... as thus the addiction began. I hope lots of crafters send their cards to her. Mine is going in the mail tonight. Thanks to Nichole for hosting this hop.


Hello! I'm hiding in my basement away from loud 13yr old boys. They have already ate everything I set out and then some, so I will take some time to myself to craft. I used some alcohol inks for my background, not sure if you should emboss over Yupo paper, but I did . I used snowflake flurry from MFT and the Peace die is an Essentials by Ellen. Playing along with the following challenges : The Classroom Mix up, The Holly and Ivy Christmas challenge  #18 Anything goes, and Addicted to stamps and more #266 Anything goes.
