Two challenges come together to provide the inspiration for this card. 

I used Pink Fresh's Floral notes Stamp, Stencil for coloring and Die to cut the image out.  It makes for quite a quick card, and I love the big image.

My card will visit the galleries for:

Just us Girls - Stencil  

Addicted to Stamps and More - Die Cuts and Stencils


Thanks so much for visiting.



I have two cards to share today.  They'll be visiting a few challenges.

This card will be visiting Can you Handle the Pressure  where use of an embossing folder is required and the optional twist this challenge is Dogs/Cats/Pets! and Festive Friday also with a dog theme, I've included elements of Dog, paw prints, and texture.


My second card is:

This card will be visiting Two Old Bats Halloween challenge. I'm not one for scary Halloween, but I do like cute.  I liked the black and white in the lower left photo.


Thanks so much for visiting.

 Hello there-

The temps are starting to come down some, so I am spending more time upstairs. It seems the humidity seems to linger upstairs so even with the AC the stickiness bugs me and I tend to stay  downstairs where it is cooler.  

Again I have two cards for you which were inspired by three challenges.  In order of challenge closing:

Less is More has a theme of Butterflies.  I hope just one will do... I used the sketch from Just Add Ink for the card design,


My second card goes to Double D Challenges with a Theme of Lighthouse.


Time to go make some food, thanks so very much for stopping by!

I finally found the umph to sit down and play with some challenges.

First up is Color Throwdown using white, black, brown and green.   


Next is Time Out with a photo inspiration. Its a gorgeous photo and I took a literal approach to my card.



Time to get ready to visit the farmers market, so these are it for today.  I am quite happy with both cards. Thank you so much for visiting.

I finally found some energy and time to sit at my desk and make a couple of cards.  I am determined to keep to my 5 cards a month for Christmas.  These two will bring me current to 36 (1 extra, so I'll just need 4 next month).

Two challenges provided the inspiration for the cards, one Less is More - traditional Christmas, and Christmas Kickstart - snowfolk.





Thanks so much for visiting.

Finally the wash is done, the suitcases are unpacked a couple of organizing projects and house straightening is done. So I am back at my desk to make a card.

This one is going to a young lady I met in Utah, she is the granddaughter of my Dad's wife.  I hope she likes it.  I got my inspiration from the Tic Tac Toe Challenge, using the middle row Birthday, Flowers, and Sequins.

It took quite a bit of time for me, well over 90 minutes.  I am so out of practice after more than a month.



Thanks so much for stopping by.
