Penny Black

Hello.  How is everyone?  Ready for another week? 

I have had this set for a while and I always forget about it.  I decided to use the dump truck stamp.  It is a little bigger than I would normally use, but I do like it.  I just feel like it takes up the whole card.  And because of that, I added my sentiment in vellum. 

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Tuesday Morning Sketches - Sketch #386
   Crafty Gals - Use a Heart
   Little Tangles - Anything Goes

Chat with you later.  Have a great evening.

Fluffy Winter Snowman

Hello.  Where did last week go?  It was just so busy.  Hopefully, I will be around more this week.

I saw these new cut files from Lori Whitlock and I just fell in love with them.  You will be seeing more of them.  After I put the card together, I just had to add something to the top of it.  my sister thought the Fluffy Snowman from Penny Black would work and she was right.  I just love him on there.  As before, I paper pieced the scarf and hat.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Die Cuttin' Divas - Blue & Silver
   Simon Says Monday - Chill Out
   Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
   Paper Shelter - Shades of Blue
   Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes

Chat with you later...

Hello and how are all of you today? 

The challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas is Dinosaurs.  My son is all grown up and I don't have a lot of need for dinosaur cards, but my niece has a 2 year old.  I thought he might like this card.  I started with the Happy Birthday dinosaur card from the Silhouette Online store and changed it to fit my needs.  I am sure Liam will love getting the card in the mail.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Die Cuttin' Divas - Dinosaurs
   Crafting When You Can - Anything Goes
   Aud Senitment - Anything Goes

Valentines, Here we come

Hello.  How are you on this sunny Sunday?  I am so glad to see some sunshine.  It has been so rainy lately.  I have said it before but I will say it again, I would rather have snow than rain in the middle of the winter.  Rain is ok during the summer when it is warm/hot, but cold rain is just.....

I have a quick card for you before I get ready for work.  I really needed a lots of layer challenge for this card because it is loaded with layers.  Oh, well.

The image is from Bugaboo.  The image comes with the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment or without it if you want to use it for something else.  I added lots of red for Valentine's. 

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Tuesday Morning Sketches - Sketch #385
   Penny's Challenges - Anything Goes #311
   Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
   Brown Sugar Challenges - Anything Goes #233
   Paper Shelter - Ribbon and/or Lace (one of the banners is a ribbon)

Off to straighten the bedroom while I am getting ready for work.  Chat with you later tonight.

Cut It Up Challenges

Hello.  It is time for another Cut It Up challenge.  I have missed some of them but it is good to be back into the swing of things.  This was fun challenge and I hope everyone has fun with it.

The theme is It's Snow Fun! You must add a snowflake on your card some where.  The challenge starts today and ends January 25th.  The sponsor will be Scrappy Dew.  She will be giving a $10 gift certificate to the Scrappy Dew store.  Lots of great things to choose from.

I decided to purchase one of Scrappy Dew's set to make my card.  I picked up the snowmen set.  Four adorable snowmen.  I only used two so you will see the other day later....

I made a tri-shutter card.  I added lots of snowflakes from the Silhouette Online Store along with a winter scene in the middle of the card.  It took me a while to cut every thing but it was a lot of fun to put together.

Have a great day and upcoming weekend.  Chat with all of you later.

Cleaning Day

Hello.  How is everyone today?  I haven't made any thing new over the last few days because my desk/table was all covered up.  So today, I am taking the time to clean it up.  Tonight will be play time.

I had these cards sitting on my desk.  I made them a couple of days ago and I didn't post them.  So here they are.  I found both of them in the Silhouette Online store.  Both of them are by Lori Whitlock.  I just love these cards.

I used glitter paper behind the snowflake.  And on the snowman one, I embossed a swirl on the snowman for some texture.

I am using them in the following challenges:
    Hiding In My Craft Room - Anything Goes
   Glitter N Sparkle - Anything Goes
   Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes

Chat with you a little later.
