Leaves, Leaves and more Leaves

Hello again.

If you come to my blog regularly, you know I love the trio cards on Silhouette Online.  I purchased the leaves weeks ago.  I finally sat down and made a card.   The leaves took up most of the space and that is ok.  I don't like a lot of empty space.

I am using the card in the following challenges:
   Pile It On - Leaves
   Wednesday's Inspiration - Anything Goes
   Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
   Crazy Hazelnut's - Anything Goes
   Hiding In My Craft Room - Anything Goes

Off to clean up my desk and table now.


Hello.  I didn't make it home for lunch and when I got home I watched the Alabama football game.  GO BAMA.  Now it is playtime. 

The first thing, I wanted to work on was the Stella Sketch at Catch The Bug.  I haven't done one of their challenges in a while.  I always enjoy the sketches.  Since I was still in Alabama mood, I grabbed one of the Fall elephant images off of my table and colored it up.  You can't tell from the picture but I cut out an extra middle pumpkin and top sunflower, added some foam tape and 3Ded them.

Instead of orange gems on the top corner, I used clear ones.  I thought I had enough orange on it.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Catch The Bug - Sketch #317
   City Crafter - Die It
   Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
   Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes #59

Off to play some more.  Chat with you later.

Thanksgiving Turkey

Hello.  I have been working on my Thanksgiving cards.  I still need to send out some cards.  I am hoping to work on that this evening during the Alabama football game.

I just loved this card from the Silhouette Online.  It is by Lori Whitlock.  I just love her patterns.  She has added a picture of the card and suggested colors for each cut.  It makes the card much easier to put together. 

It was originally set up as a traditional card but I decided to just put my message in the slide portion.  There won't be a lot of space but it will work.  I added goggly eyes and the the leaves at the bottom corner. 

It is hard to tell but the pull out tag was embossed with my dots texture folder.  I don't like a lot of empty space so I thought the dots would help.  I also used hemp cord was by string. 

The Let's Talk Turkey stamp is from a $1 set that I found up by the  register at JoAnn's ETC.

I am using this card in the following challenges:
   Ave 613 Create - Anything Goes
   Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
   Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes
   Cupcake Inspiration - Tags #335
   Crafty Gals - Thankful

I am off to get ready for work.  I will try to post another card during my lunch.  Have a great morning.

Thanksgiving Turkey

Hello again.

I just love Thanksgiving.  It is one of my favorite times of the year.  It starts with Halloween, then Thanksgiving and ends with Christmas.  It is just a great time of the year.  Lots of family and friends.

I have tried the shadow cards a couple of time and I just wasn't sure.  So when my sister wanted to try this card, I was so sure.  But it came out great.  I just love it.  Now a question for you, the frame on the top layer, is it a pattern paper?  No, it isn't.  It was white and I distressed it.  I think it came out great.

I am going to use it in the following challenges:
   Crafty Gals - Autumn Hues
   Crafty Creations - Colourful
   Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes
   Paper Shelter - Layer On Layer
   Simon Says Wednesday - Thanksgiving
   Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
   ABC Challenge - U is Unlimited

Off to clean off my craft table and desk.  Talk to all of you tomorrow.

Quick One

Hello.  How is everyone?  I am determined to get some cards made this week.

Tonight I made a quick one.  I love the how simple it is.  Plus it has glitter and a gem.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   ABC Christmas - V is For Very Cute
   City Crafter - Getting Ready For Christmas
   Clear It Out - Christmas
   Curtain Call - Plush & Plaid
   Fab N Funky - Dies and/or Punches
   Paper Taker Weekly - Anything Goes
   Wednesday's Inspiration - Sparkle

Off to work on something else.  See you soon.

Hello again.  Now for the cards I made today.  I got several cards done.  I don't know if I will get them all posted tonight or not.

The first one is the swirly leaf card from Silhouette Online.  I cut the leaf out of white and then used my Memento teardrops and colored the leaf with several colors.  I really like how it came out.  After that I left the card simple so the leaf would be the highlight.

I am using it for the following challenges:
   Crafty Gals - Anything Goes
   Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
   613 Ave Create - Anything Goes

Back in a bit.  Well, actually I think I will post the other cards tomorrow.  I need to finish up and get to bed.  It is a work day tomorrow.

One Last Halloween

Hello everyone.  I had today off and I spent it getting a few things done around the house.  But I did find some craft time.  So I have some cards to show you.

I actually made this one right before Halloween and I didn't have time to post it.  This was such a cute card.  I really like it.  The card is from Silhouette Online.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Die Cuttin' Divas - Halloween
   Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Halloween
   Tuesday Throwdown - Too Cute To Spook
   City Crafter - Creatures of the Dark
   Gem of a Challenge - Too Cute To Spook

I don't think I will be making any more Halloween cards even though I have a few more Halloween challenges.  We will see.  Have a great night.
