More from my crafty face time.

Freshly Made Sketches and We Love Stamping galleries will be visited by this card.

I used a bit of a coverplate page cut out from The Greetery, popped in some pearls in the larger openings and then added my winter duo. The snowman is not holding up his side enough so its a bit crooked (at least thats my story! Ha!)  Some copic coloring, and the remainder of that back drop piece will decorate the envelope flap.  (I did flip the sketch to portrait...sometimes landscapes are hard for me to envision elements on.)

Have a fabulous day.

Thanks much for stopping by.

 Happy Saturday...

I had  a lovely crafting time with Peggy via face time today.  

I found my inspiration in two challenges. Simon Says -  Emboss it, and Fourseasons -February anything Winter. 


 I used Simons Refined Snowflakes EF, and die cuts from MFT -pierced fancy flourish, and IO Skates.  The skates had some surgery and rearranging to fit my vision, but they worked out nicely. The greeting is from Lawn Fawn heat embossed in white.


I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  No football tomorrow, so I'll probably be crafting again. Thanks for visiting.

Happy almost Valentine's Day.  I have a couple of cards to share today.  The stamp set from Stampin Up just grabbed me immediately with the adorable cats. There are three, and I have shown two of them here. The third may make a great anniversary card. We'll see.

The first is going to the galleries at Cupcake Inspirations and Inspired by Challenge.

I was inspired by the patterns on Cupcake Challenges, and chose a patterned paper to add color to my base card. The embossed white clouds were inspired by the white heart plates in the photo at Inspired by challenges.



My second card is visiting Tic Tac Toe.  I was inspired by the middle row Red, Free, Love sentiment.

 Thanks so very much for visiting.

I am deep into a particularly nasty round of the vampire hours, I am only awake from 7pm until 8 am and sleeping or feeling dopey the rest of the clocks round.  

I did manage to spend a bit of time crafting.  This is the new spellbinders anemone die cut in gold foil paper and white. The white bits were colored with Taffy DOs, as well as the cardbase.  I wasn't looking for a smooth even blend, I wanted kind of a cloudy pink behind the blooms.

I am sending it to the gallery of Colorful Options (Pink), Festive Friday (Pink, Flower, and something shiny).

Hey There-

Its time for the next calendar page...

Bonnie Klass provided the file, all I had to to was print and cut and decorate each month. Such fun.

This was from a recollections stamp set that was a gift, and the cat holding the heart just seemed perfect. I really kept it simple with 4 markers.  R20, R22, R24, N0

Thanks for stopping in.
