February 14, 2017 Tic-Tac-Toe


This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is Tic-Tac-Toe which is one of my favorite challenges.  

I went for the hearts, pattern paper and buttons, yes there is a button - it is teeny tiny and is on the bow in the left hand top corner.  I used two stamps for this challenge Flowering Hearts 4316-I and Be Mine 1201-I - the Be Mine stamp I cut into to two lines as the second line of the sentiment says Today-Tomorrow-Forever.  This part of the stamp I put in the inside of the card.  I enjoy paper piecing so I paper pieced the pot and the heart flowers, coloring the leaves with copic markers.  Had a pack of Valentine papers - (that I am trying to use up) and it had the pattern paper that I thought would go perfect with my design.  Some ribbon, a bow with a button and the card is complete.  

  Now it is your turn to make a card using the challenge of Tic-Tac-Toe - as you can see there are a lot of possibilities for this challenge.  You have a full month to enter our challenge to win.  You do not have to use Repeat Impressions stamps but if you do you will be entered twice for the drawing of a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions. 

If you look on my right side bar I also have a discounted coupon for you to use when you go shopping at Repeat Impressions.
Now why not take a look at our DT Rock Stars for inspiration and to get you started.

February 10, 2018 RoseBud



We just learned that some dear friends that we met when we adopted our first Rhodesian Ridgeback has lost their beautiful RoseBud.  What a story she has - her people Mom chased her all the way to Chicago to find her and by the grace of God found her.  She was either 12 or 13 and lived a wonderful life with her people parents who loved her very very much.  This was a hard card to make - and I hope it brings some comfort to them both.  We included a donation in RoseBud's name to the Ridgeback Rescue.   Godspeed RoseBud.

February 7, 2021 You have a way with Words

This week over at The House that Stamps Built it is Designers Choice - which is me and my challenge was You have a Way with Words. 

I have had this card in my head for quite sometime - at least the words - then when I got my last order from Repeat Impressions I had ordered the stamp
Pocket Watch 6705-K from the Legacy Series.  What a great bunch of stamps in this series, great stamps for a scrap booker as well as a card maker.  For my word stamp I used Life is Not 6113-K.

I thought the verse with the background stood alone without much bling, ribbon,etc. so I left it as it. 

Now it is your turn to make a card using the challenge of  Way with Words  - as you can see there are a lot of possibilities for this challenge.  You have a full month to enter our challenge to win.  You do not have to use Repeat Impressions stamps but if you do you will be entered twice for the drawing of a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions.

February 5, 2018 - Last of the Craft Weekend

These are a couple of the cards Donna and I made on Monday morning.  She is an amazing hostess - tuna salad (with celery) for lunch and a most delicious ham/cheddar chowder soup for Dinner on Sunday.  I have "my" room when I stay all night at her house (right next to her craft room).  Good time was had by all.  Thanks Donna and Diane.  We truly missed Donna's Mom who is one of our group as well - but she was unable to make it this time.  She did face time us at lunch so we did get to visit with her a bit.

We also made some darling little flowers - which I have not yet used but will be sure to post when I do.

February 1, 2018 - Fun Day of Crafting


This past weekend two of my besties and I got together to do a little crafting.  We each brought two shoebox projects to share.  What a great way to get new and fresh ideas.  I stayed all night vs. driving back home late and Donna and I played some more on Monday AM.  Here are some of the cards we made.


These two cards were my shoebox shares.  Simon Says stamps used on the first card and "old" TAC stamps used on the second one.  Love this flag fold card.



These were Diane's shoe box project - SU - demonstrator - love the doily dress.  


This was one of the projects from Donna - love the fold. This card used a pretty RepeatImpressions stamp - you need to go visit Repeat Impressions web site and look at all the beautiful stamps she has in her collection.    Her other projects were making a variety of backgrounds - so you will be seeing those when I make them up.  We used mostly Distress Oxide Inks and blending on the backgrounds.

JANUARY 31, 2018 Sketch - The House that Stamps Built




This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is sketch challenge - this was so much fun to put together.  With Valentine Day only a couple weeks off I choose to make a Valentine card using 112-H Dancing Mice- aren't they just adorable.  I choose Valentine Day but I think these darling mice could be used for an anniversary card  as well.  For my sentiment I used 1201-I  Be Mine.  

Colored the mice with copic markers, then I started going through my stash of "love" papers and came across the heart cs, and thought the strip pink/red went well.  A piece of heart ribbon, and a couple of heart embellishments.  This may be my Valentine for my hubby.  

Now it is your turn to make a card using the challenge of Sketch Challenge  - as you can see there are a lot of possibilities for this challenge.  You have a full month to enter our challenge to win.  You do not have to use Repeat Impressions stamps but if you do you will be entered twice for the drawing of a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions.

January 28, 2016 - Birthday Cards

Diane's Card

Donna's Card

Getting together today with two besties for a day of card making, new techniques, new folds, fun, lunch and time together.  
I traveled to STL. today for our get together as they both live within a few minutes of each other, so I am going to make it an overnighter.  We try to get together every 4-5 months to craft together and always have a great time.
Diane's birthday was two weeks ago  and Donna's birthday is in February but since I wanted to hand deliver the cards I took them with me.  Both sets are SU - love how they stamp.   Both cards are very CAS - (for me) and I like how they turned out.  
See you in a couple of days with our weekly challenge at The House that Stamps Built.
