Glitter Ornaments


Hello! Managed to make it to the craft room for a bit to make this CAS card. Awhile back when I was at the Dollar Tree I came across these pks of self adhesive "glitter" paper. Thought it would make some sparkly cards. Anyway I saw the YNS inspiration picture and thought I'd try out this paper. It cut easily and the best way to describe it is to say it's like making your own stickers?!?! They are thin when peeled of the backing but they don't lose there sparkle/glitter. If they still have some next time I go I will be picking up some more. Three 8 1/2x 11 sheets for $1 is a great deal. The ornaments are Impression Obsession and the snowflakes are Art Impressions I think? I need to find a place to buy that silver cord in bulk! I always pick up the spool with 3 colors (Red, Gold & Silver) around the holidays at the "Box" craft stores and run out of silver an end up with tons of the other 2 colors. That's it for now thanks for stopping by!

With Love


Hello! Time for another new sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This weeks sketch is very similar to last weeks sketch but I tried to give it a different feel/look?! The black lacey looking strip is actually from a roll of precut self adhesive decorative tape I guess is the best way to describe it?! Picked it up at one of the "box" craft stores awhile back. The heart and key are Spellbinders dies. Thought this would make for a classy wedding or even anniversary card. Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to stop by and check out what the rest of the DT has come up with this week!

Christmas Lamp


Hello! I've been MIA for a few weeks except for my prescheduled TMS DT posts. I had some major surgery on the 1st and it's been very slow going. I felt good enough for small amounts of time at the craft table this past week. Won't tell you how long it took to make this card! Considering the fact I had already colored the image and picked out the pretty paper previously. It's been killing me not to be able to participate in the month long Holiday card challenge over at Beccy's Place. Now I have made at least 1 for it! Excuse the poor photo I can't move very well yet and guess I was to far away and the picture is a bit blurry. Anyway I'm happy with how this one turned out, looks really nice in real life! That's it for now enjoy you day!

Butterfly Wishes


Hello! It's Tuesday so that means its time for a new sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. It's a quick and easy one this week. This one came together rather quickly with stuff that I had laying around on my desk. The butterfly came in a pk of 3 from M's ages ago, have them in several colors and finally used one. I added some rhinestones to it. The sentiment and scallop die edge are from PTI. Might have to make this one again in other color combos and sentiments? Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to stop by and check out what the rest of the DT has come up with this week.

Never Regret


Hello! It's time for this week's new sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I have flipped the sketch to make it work with the Rubbernecker sentiment (also picked up at the recent stamp show that I went to) that I choose to use for this week. I really like this sentiment! Reminds of another favorite sentiment of mine.....Live, Love, Laugh it's just a bit longer and more detailed! Off to the right side of my card I've used this piercing/embossing die that I've had for AGES. It was fun to use a tool that was forgotten about again! That's all for now please be sure to stop by and check out what the rest of the DT has come up with this week.

Sweet!


Hello! It's Tuesday so that means it's time for another new sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. This week is a fairly simple sketch but let me tell you it sure had me stumped! Still not 100% happy with what I came up with but it's done! My cute little bear is from a TAC (The Angel Company) not sure of the name as I was gifted some images ages ago. The sentiment is from Sweet 'n' Sassy Stamps. That's it for today be sure to stop by and check out the rest of the DT has come up with this week. Challenges are listed below.

Patriotic Thank you


Hello! I'm back for a quick 2nd post/card today.  My earlier Christmas card is below. This was a quick and easy one, only stamping is the sentiment. Lots of embossing and a few die cuts. Oh and a paper crimper on the heart. I think I want to remake this one again later in only Red, White and Blue??! Ok that's it for tonight! Be sure to stop back by in the morning for the new Tuesday Morning Sketch.

Hello! Back with another Christmas card to share with you. Dug out a favorite Impression Obsession Chickadee stamp this round. Colored it with Copics and added a bit of Nuvo glitter markers (another purchase from that darn stamp show!) to the holly and berries. Then I topped it off with some glossy accents on the berries. I used a small black nailhead for his eye. Have some gold accents with the card stock layers and the extra Nailheads. This sparkles in real life. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Bonjour!


I'm Baaaaaack! Managed to squeeze in one final card for the Cat Lover's Hop! Sure hope I can find/remember this one again for next year because it's been a load of fun. Love getting to ink up some of my many cat stamps. This one for example I've had for quite awhile and never used. Unfortunately I have way to many of those! This paper crafting sure is an addiction, but at least it's a fun one. :-)  This reminds me of "Lucky" his picture is on my sidebar. He is one SPECIAL cat. I've had LOTS of cats over the years but none quite like him. LOADS of personality and follows my husband around like a puppy. Love all my cats but this one will really HURT to lose. I keep telling him he needs to break the Guinness World Record which I believe is something like 38 years??!! Longest I've ever had personally so far is 17. He's around 8 so we should be good for awhile yet. Anyway enough about that! Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit again soon. Challenges are listed below.

Naughty or Nice?


Hello! Well I was able to make it to my craft room for a bit today to play. This is one of the cards I made more to come in a bit. It uses Christmas Goose from Beccy's Place. How can you look at this guy and not grin?!! I think another fitting sentiment idea would be Bah Humbug?! He looks a bit like Scrooge. Anyway it was a fun card to make/color. Hope it makes you smile. That's it for now but I'll be back soon with another "Cat" card! Challenges are listed below.
