 Greetings -

I love the stamps and dies from Newton's Nook Design, so when I saw this Inky Paws challenge I had to play along.

I stamped the NND image in versafine sepia ink and used colored pencils to add color. The sentiment comes from SSS.  Then panel was die cut (Reverse Confettii) and placed on an orange cardbase. 

I am also adding this card to the Time Out Gallery - Festive.  And to the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.


Thanks so very much for visiting.

A quick CAS card for CAS Christmas.  I'll probably make a few more for my stash with other holiday greetings. CAS Christmas is asking for Pine as their theme this month. 

The bough is from Stampin up and I added a few red gems to add small bits of color.


Thanks for visiting.

I am sneaking in almost at the wire to Cupcake Inspirations. The challenge is a color challenge for pink, gray and white. 

I have such a hard time with those darned slimline cards and photographs. I played again with Pink Fresh's Floral Notes.


Thanks for visiting.

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.
