CC&S #408

Hello! A week later I'm happy to report it's not snowing or freezing... YEAH! It's supposed to be in the 30-40"s all week. Hopefully our 3 feet of snow cover doesn't all melt at once. For my card I used images and sentiments from MTF. I smudged the background in one spot, so then I had to add splatters. It's always good to be able to creatively hide a boo- boo. I hope you will join us  this week. Thanks for stopping by.

 Hello! I hope you are all well. I'm really going to make a solid effort this year to have more Christmas cards done earlier. I've been meaning to make multiples of each one I make to have a bigger supply on hand. This one was really easy to make, I used some distress inks to water color the tree diecuts and then used the remaining ink to do the background. I liked the softer look for the background. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! I hope you are all doing well. I've had a bit more time to work on my cards recently, too cold to leave the house. I'm so ready so spring. We had -25 degrees wind chill here this weekend, it's snowed almost every day for the last 2 weeks... and snowing now. But on a positive note it won't last forever. I used this floral image from the Greetery and the sentiment is from Taylored Expressions. I really liked the grey for the leaves .Thanks for stopping by today. Have a wonderful day and stay warm.

Hello! I hope you all are doing well. I've been busy trying not to freeze. We are a couple days into an artic freeze here.. it's awful. So I made my card this week something that warms my heart.. mythical creatures. This adorable stamp came out on leap day and I had to have him. I opted to flip the sketch to better fit how I wanted him to float in the clouds. This made me happy to create, crafting has been a real struggle this pass year.. as I'm sure it has for others. I've been saving tons of ideas on pinterest and instagram in hopes it sparks some creativity. I hope you all are safe and warm where ever you are. Thanks for stopping by today.

 Hello! I hope you are all doing well. We finally finished digging out from a big snow storm . So it feels like Christmas time here. The background for this card was created using a Newton's nook stencil, the circle and reindeer die as well as the sentiment strip are SSS. This is one I could mass produce very easily, which is what I need . Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! I hope this groundhogs day finds you all doing well. I'm trying to step out of my comfort zone with my card making this year. Normally if there is a green of any sort in the colour challenge I do some sort of floral ...not today. This stamp/die/stencil combo is from Taylored expressions, I love their stuff. So much so I'm a  super fan (means I've spent $$$ on their products ). LOL!! I hope you will join the fun and share your card with us. Thanks for stopping by.

CC&S #404

Hello! I hope you all are doing well. I am longing for spring , so I made a spring colored card this week. I used alcohol pearl inks to make the rainbow . I've been trying to make more cards to mail to friends recently, to cheer people up. Also  I finally got around to better organizing my craft spot ( small area in our basement). I don't know why I saved so many tiny scraps of paper? Well I tossed them . Thanks for stopping by today.
