Thinking of You Card

Decided it was time to join the Memory Box Challenge which is for a "thinking of you or miss you" theme this month.  I used All The Happiness clear stamp set and Pinpoint Leaf Plate on my "thinking of you" card.  The sentiment was done with a label maker.  I colored the image with pastel colored alcohol markers (love this image for coloring).  Hope the weather is nice where you are.  We are expecting storms later so time to batten down the hatches (wink).  Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay crafty.

Happy Easter Cards

I spent a fun and productive morning in my craft room working on cards for Easter.  I'm entering these cards in the Cut It Up Challenge which is Spring.  The stamps are by Simon Says Stamp (Fingerprint Doodles) but the sentiment is by Pink & Main.  Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay crafty.

Inkspirational (Critters That Hop -- I have bunnies on these cards.)


Christmas Plaid Card

We Wish You A Plaid Christmas is the current Jingle Belles challenge.  I found this pretty red plaid paper in my stash along with a pre-printed gold foiled sentiment to match it.  I used a plaid embossing folder on gold foil cardstock to mount the sentiment on.  The stamp image is my Mama Elephant and I fussy cut it out for the lower right of the sentiment panel.  I added a white twine bow for the final touch.  This is a fast and easy card but I loved the plaids on it.  Thanks Jingle Belles for helping me get one more Christmas card made!   I'm also entering this card at the ABC Christmas Challenge. Stay safe and remember to stay crafty.


Best Dam Birthday Card

Got to spend a pleasant morning in my craft room playing with cute new stamps by Penguin Palace.  My daughter's birthday is coming up and she loves camping so I thought Bond With Nature Canada would be perfect to make her card.  I used the sketch at the Penguin Palace Challenge blog for my design inspiration.  This card was lots of fun to put together.   I know my daughter will be tickled with it (especially the birthday money enclosed.....wink!)  Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay crafty.

Caroling Cats Card

The new Jingle Belles Challenge is "Holiday Melody" where there needs to be something musical on your card.  I remembered a cute stamp set I have by Newton's Nook of caroling kittens and decided to work with it.  I think they are singing Deck The Halls (I have a good imagination...wink).  Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you are enjoying the new daylight savings time.  I was able to get a walk in before our supper tonight....nice!!!!  :)

Believe Card

Can You Handle The Pressure challenge is Anything Goes With A Twist Of Plaid.  Since it is a very rare snow day for us, I decided to stay all warm in my craft room.  The embossing folder is by Sizzix and has a beautiful plaid pattern.  I used it on the trimmed blue cardstock plus the woman's stamped suit images (so she is wearing a plaid suit....wink).  The woman plus her clothes are stamps by Stampendous.  The sentiment is by Unity Stamp Company.  Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay crafty.


You're My Bestie Card

It snowed here during the night and we got up to a white winter wonderland.  This is the only snow we have had this winter to do any ground cover.  Course last weekend, it was in the 70's so crazy weather anyway.  With the snow and cold temperatures, I decided to play in my craft room and make cards for challenges. This card is was inspired by the Let's Squash It challenge of Emboss/Deboss. I used an Oriental flower pattern embossing folder (older one by Cuttlebug).  The yellow panel is the embossed side while the lavender and pink die cut panels are the debossed sides.  The cute images and sentiment are by Unity Stamp Company.  I felt the card needed a "little" something so I went hunting in my craft room for an Oriental embellishment.  I found an almost "antique" punch by All Night Media which I thought would be perfect.  I used it for the center two black circles.  Thanks for stopping by on this cold winter's day....and remember to stay warm AND crafty.

Standing With Ukraine Card

I would like to believe the sentiment on my card!  The world's eyes are on Ukraine right now and the images are heart breaking.  I did this card for a couple of challenges plus time in my craft room helps with stress.  The stamp image and sentiment are from a set by Unity Stamp Company.  Thanks for stopping by and remember to hug your loved ones today if you can.


Looking Good Birthday Card

Happy Birthday Time Out Challenges!  They are celebrating their 8th birthday!  How awesome is that!  I needed a card for a family friend so how about that for perfect timing?  Wink!  I used stamps by Art Impressions and a border die by Sizzix.  Easy peasy and hopefully will bring a smile to our friend.  Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay "looking good."  Ha-ha

Embrace Change Peace Card

Here is my card for the Mod Squad Challenge of Standing With Ukraine.  My heart breaks for what this country is being put through.  I used dies from my stash plus used my Silhouette Cameo for the sunflower and peace sentiments.  The sentiment stamp is an old one by My Sentiments Exactly.  Thanks for stopping by and remember to hug your loved ones today.  Peace!
