Hello ~

Today, this card will be visiting two challenges: The Flower Challenge, and Watercooler Wednesday.


I used Altenew inks in the Pocket Full of Sunshine set for the monochromatic coloring.


The Flower Challenge calls for a monochromatic flower card and Watercooler Wednesday is for all things feminine.


Thanks so much for stopping by.

I am back from my break. It went on a bit longer than planned. So I feel good and rested.  

I have a card for two challenges today - Fourseasons and Challenge Up Your Life.

This stamp is from MFT, and was sent to me by Greta.  Thank you so much for the darling set!

We had a good snow yesterday and this seemed the perfect card.  There are some pics below.

It still continued to snow after these photos. All in all about 10-12 inches of snow. The 
air smells so nice and fresh too.

This was the view from my recliner yesterday as I sat wrapped up. 
There was tv watching, napping and reading occupying my time.

Today's view from my Crafty space. The melting has begun.

Thank you so much for visiting.  I have visited blogs for the time I was away and saw the lovely creations you all made.  Its a bit overwhelming to leave comments on 3 weeks of posts, so I am back to commenting today going forward.  Wishing you all a New Year filled with health and prosperity.

Two cards, just because. No Challenges.  Just play time after completing all the Christmas cards.

My friend Michele was kind enough to send me some die cut cardstock backed washi images. Thank you Michele.

 These blooms were put on a navy cardstock, so I did as well. I think it makes a lovely notecard.

These blooms were on white card so I simply glued them to a white card base and hand drew the frame.

I am going to take a blog break, and will back near the end of the month.  I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Thanks for stopping by.

I am getting close to giddy...or insane. I have two cards left to make and then...I can just play or more likely take some time off and bake cookies and watch Hallmark Christmas movies.

I was inspired by two challenges to make these cards, Inspired By Challenge and Tic Tac Toe

I used the center column at Tic Tac Toe, and that soft blue/Aqua snowflake inspiration photo from Inspired by and came up with these three cards.  My favorite is the third card...probably the delicate snowflake that had one arm break off...but tucking it in solved that problem.



Thanks much for visiting.  Hopefully by Monday, all my cards will be in the mail. Today is booster shot day. Take care.

I am still plugging away on the local Christmas cards, specifically for the crafty gals group I am in. This is card number 2 of the 9 I'd like to make.  I'm still playing with Newton's Stocking and probably will for all the cards. So you might see a couple more.

I am sending this card to Fusion Card Challenge and Addicted to Stamps and More.  



Thanks so much for visiting.

I am still working on the last few Christmas cards, they are local deliveries. The rest have been mailed out. YAY.

I am sneaking in under the wire at Inky Paws with this one and I'll submit it to Watercooler Wednesday as well.


The stamp is Newton's Nook called Newton' Stocking, the red panel was die cut with Newton's Nook die set Frames and Flags.  I used an MFT stencil English Brick Wall for the 3 small panels. The Stocking was colored with copics. 


Thanks much for visiting and I hope your card making is going well.

I'm still plugging away at the Christmas card stash.  And once that's done comes the addressing, signing and postage stamping.  I'd like to get the overseas and west coast cards out by the end of the month. Cross your fingers for me.

This card is visiting Christmas Kickstart Challenge (snippets) and CAS Colours and Sketches (sketch).

I started by using MFT's Holiday Background in Fog ink. Then I used a leftover piece of glittered paper to cut the merry and the berries. A snippit of green left over from yesterdays wreath had enough left to cut the holly leaves. I hope you can see the sketch in my card.


Thanks for visiting.

 Hi...another start of the week. My agenda is still the same - finish those Christmas Cards.

I have a few cards for a few challenges, starting with The Male Room Challenge and Watercooler Wednesday.


Next up is Double D Challenges and Die Cut Diva's:

This is a mini slimline...and you know what...its the perfect size to pop a check into! 

The stamp is an old beloved Hero Arts stamp, stamped once in the middle of the card then once on each end. Some light inking around the trees and then a double layer of the scalloped frame. Also inked the card base edges.

And my last card for this post is visiting Tic Tac Toe Challenge and the Card Concept.


For my clean and simple card I went with the top left to right bottom diagonal - Plaid, Wreath, Red.

Thanks so very much for visiting. Time to go cook.
