October 21, 2014 Jake

DP from DCWV - Kraft CS 12 x 12 cut down from TAC, AMuse for brown polka dot DP

This is one of those cards you don't enjoy making a sympathy card.  Our daughter/SIL had to put their beloved boxer Jake to sleep this week - he lived a wonderful long life but the last few months his quality of life was so poor he simply was not enjoying his days or nights.  What a difficult decision this is to make -  Jake you were loved by everyone you met.  Challenges:

October 18, 2014 Stamping Fun


One of my besties, Donna,  called me Monday and told me she was finished with her monthly work and needed a couple of days at the Hotop Hotel!!!  I quick put together some projects for us to share as she did and she arrived on Tuesday am to STAMP!!!  In the meantime one of my other besties Patti called and said she had a surprise for me and when I told her Donna was here she said "wow this will work out beautifully".  You see we had BOTH won prizes from Patti's recent 6th anniversary blog post.  What a fun time we had stamping, lunch served by Mr. Hotop, and then more stamping.  These are just two of Donna's projects - the first one uses all AMuse Studio supplies and the second is a cute digi by Meljens Design - colored this cute little guy with copics and I have a card all ready to go to my little chemo buddy this next week.  There will be more pictures the next few days and one showing the prize that Donna won.

October 11, 2014 Eat Cake

Stamps and  paper by AMuse Studio

You would have to know my son to appreciate this but...a week or so ago he asked me if I thought I could make a card for his director at Headway.  Now he knows I make all my own cards and he even has made a card or two for my hubby (with my assist).  So I asked him if he wanted cute, pretty, funny, and he said "yes".  So here is what I came up with - I hand delivered it to him last weekend when we had lunch together and he was very happy with it.

October 7, 2014 Hand Santizer for Fall

Cardstock from my stash, pattern paper from Farm House and acorn die by Die-Versions, then used embossing folder 

Yea - finally had a play day with one of my BFFs  Pat , the other day and this was one of her projects - we watched the video from Dawns Stamping Thoughts  while we cut and scored and after watching her video it all went together 1-2-3 and is so darn cute.  Here is a picture of it open

I'm thinking all sorts of little giftie here - fall, Halloween, Christmas, Birthday etc.  They are easy to put together and the hand santizers are very reasonable at Bath and Body especially when you have a coupon.

October 4, 2014 Breast Cancer Awareness

Stamp from TAC, paper Stemma, button from my stash, ribbon from stash

I have a chemo buddy with breast cancer so I have a goodie package all ready to send out this week with socks, coaster, pen, and a scarf - when I saw the sketch from Sketch Saturday I knew what my layout was going to be.  This stamp set was released at the last seminar the Angel company had and I have hung on to it (as well as many others).  Colored with copics and added tiny pearls on the bra for some added bling.  I have had this pack of ribbon buttons for a while and this was just what was needed to finish the card off.   Today is Happy World Card Making Day so I hope everyone got a chance to do a little card making.      Challenges:
     Sketch Saturday - follow sketch 
     Eureka Stamps - use some bling
     My Craft Creations - - anything goes

October 1, 2014 Fall in the Forest

Stamps AMuse Studio, DP Farm House, Spellbinders nesties, sequin leaves from stash

Just got this cute set a couple of weeks ago using Fall in the Forest from AMuse Studio and I thought it would work very nicely with the Sketch Saturday sketch this week.  There are 4 little forest creatures including a fox (which is my favorite).  I'm hoping this fall card will cheer up my little senior lady that I send a card and a note to every week.  Challenges:
     Sketch Saturday - follow sketch
    Whoopsidaisy - use 2 or more designer papers

September 29, 2014 Autumn

Leaf  and Sentiment- AMuse Studio, Gorgeous Grunge, SU, ribbon from my stash, colored with gelatos

Last weekend our friends came down - mister helped my hubby work on our deck remodeling (vinyl) and Diane and I got to spend some much needed time in my craft room.  This card was "cased" from Pintrest but we both really like the look.  I am having so much fun coloring with my gelatos and experimenting with different techniques using them.  I love the sentiment - and this card is in the mail to my new chemo buddy.  Challenges:
     Creative Corner - brown and Turquoise and Brown     
     Brown Sugar Challenge - anything goes
