Repeat Impressions DCC227 ~ Black, White & Red

Repeat Impressions' Designer's Choice Challenge came out today.  I decided while I was working on Repeat Impression challenges that I would go ahead and do this one.  It had to be a Red, White and Black card.  I hope you like the card I came up with.

I used another Denami Design's stamp.    However, it isn't a chickie.  I wanted to put a chickie on it but my chickies are always yellow and that didn't work with the theme.  

Have a great day.

Repeat Impressions Sketch F2013

It is time for another sketch from Repeat Impressions.  I just love doing sketches.  It gives me a chance to see what others do with the same idea.

I used my new Denami Design's stamps.  I got the new Shamrock Chickies last week. 

The chickies are my favorite stamps to play with.  I have so many of them.  I don't know how Denami keeps coming up with more of them.   I have several sitting on my stamping table so you will see more of them.

It is hard to tell but the light green card has dots on it from my texture folder.

I hope you enjoy the card and have a good day.

St. Paddy's 2

We are getting snow and a wintery mix.  They are predicting 4-6 inches of snow with probably 1/2 to an inch of slush under it.  Tomorrow should be fun.  If all of the slush freezes tonight, I will be in trouble.  Hopefully, we won't lose power.  The lights have flicker a couple of times but that is it.

I finished up another St. Patrick's Day card.  The hearts are a Stampin' Up set.  I really like how it came out.

I hope everyone is having a good week.  Stay safe and warm.

St. Paddy's

I made my first St. Paddy's card tonight.  I don't think I will make many but I do want to make a few.

I saw a similar card on pinterest. 

My Sweetie

For the week of Valentine's, I left notes all over the place for my husband.  Here are a few of them.

The first one is the radio he uses in the bathroom to listen to his audio books during his shower. 

I left this one in his lunch box.

This is his steering wheel in his truck.  The note says "Drive Safe.  You are Precious."  I left a KitKat on his seat also.

This is just the ones I took pictures of.  It was fun and I think I will do it again next year.

Valentine's Day Card with Textures

I somehow sat down my camera and I can't seem to find it.  I am hoping it is at work in my locker.  I won't know until Tuesday morning.  In the meantime, I pulled out my old Canon and retook all of the pictures I needed for this week.

This was my last Valentine's card for this year.  I didn't get to make all of the cards I wanted but there is always last year.   I am hoping to clean all of my Valentine's stamps up tonight so I can move on to some thing else. Maybe I will have some thing new to show you tonight or tomorrow.

I made this card using my spellbinder hearts and several texture folders.  The little flower on the bottom is from Stampin' Up.  

I hope everyone had a good Valentine's Day.

Repeat Impressions Sketch J2313

I liked the sketch over at Repeat Impressions so much that I decided to use it again.  Plus I used one of the Repeat Impressions' stamps.  This little snowman is just so cute and will be used again and again. 

I put glitter on the snowballs.  It is hard to see in the picture but it is there.

Now for a question, when do you stop making and sending snow/snowmen letters?  I usually stop at Valentine's, but I have so many new stamps that I have used yet that I am not ready to stop using them.  I think I am going to keep going until the end of February and then see what the weather is doing.

Honeycomb Texture Folder

I got a small Stampin' Up order this week.  Including in it was the new Honeycomb texture folder.  I just had to play around with it.  I will be using it again and again.

I also used Stampin' Up's new Valentine's Day stamp.  The red hearts are made with the Stampin' Up Heart to Heart punch.

Fancy Friends

Having two days off from work gave me time to work on my Valentine's Day cards.  Here is another I made using Stampin' Up's Fancy Friends set.  The Because I Care stamp is part of another Stampin' Up set with the same name.

You can't tell from the picture but the center of the doily is set in pink and then cut out and attached with 3d foam tape.

I don't usually make my cards out of white cardstock but I seem to be using it a lot lately.

I hope you enjoy the card.  Have a great weekend.
