Alaska in August

My favorite pics from the Alaska Trip! (August 2018)






It's Your Day

I made this card for my son a while ago but never put it on the Blog! This was at the time when I decided to have "choices" for the insides of my cards. So, you will see below there are two occasions for which this card can be used, Father's Day or a Male Birthday!  All you have to do is pick one of the panels and glue it into the frame on the inside of the card and you're ready to go!

I am entering this card in the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge # 141. HERE are some other cards which were entered.

A few elements on this card:  The tie is a Die Namics MFT set called "Terrific Ties;" I created the plaid paper (my first try!) from SSS stamp set called "Jumbo Stripes;" the holes were created using a die from Paper Smooches called "Dots and Dashes;"  and I can't find nor remember the stamp for the sentiment!

Sending Hugs After All This Time!

It's been ages since I posted a hand crafted card! Not my fault.... blame politics! Yes, like many others, I became involved and it took up a lot of my time.

But, now I have a card which turned out very cute, and I am entering it in MFT Sketch Challenge 414 which you can find HERE.

Some elements in this card: Copic colored little girl from MFT "Love is in the Air" stamp; "Sending Hugs" die from Honey Bee; a Martha Stewart Punch for the scalloped edges on the paper I created using a gelli press; cut out hearts from an old MFT Die Namics heart border. I decorated the envelope with a stamp and purple ink for a matching effect. Thanks for visiting my blog!

Sprinkled with Fun

One more post today. This card combines two great companies - Ellen Hutson and Avery Elle. I used two "Pixie Dust" fairies, several stamps from "Bear Wear," the sun from "All Inside," and a sentiment from "Warm Fuzzies."

Valentine "Fur" You

Hello Blog land. I'm back with a sweet card for Valentine's Day featuring a kitty from "I Knead You" from My Favorite Things. It also features a stencil of paw prints which I just purchased recently from MFT, stenciled behind the kitty using Antique Linen Distress Ink. I am entering this card in the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #315. You can see the sketch below. Thanks for checking out my blog today.

It moose be Valentine's Day

Hello Bloggers. It's been a few days since I posted a card, but I have been making more Valentine's Cards for the Cards From the Heart drive for children in hospitals being sponsored by Winter Sims. Her email is if you want to contact her and send cards for this wonderful drive. Thanks for stopping by.
My card today is a little square card which I am going to enter in the 

The central image of the moose colored with copic markers is from Mint Owl Studio - "I Moose You," ans o is the little sentiment "It moose be." The trees are from Lawn Fawn "Toboggan Together." The white heart is from Spellbinders and the green heart is a Savvy die cut. The sentiment on the tag at the bottom is from Technique Tuesday's "Say It Happy" set.

Nuts About You

I have another Valentine's Card. This one is part of a batch I am making for "Cards From the Heart" Card Drive - for kids in hospitals. I am so happy to be able to participate in this drive again this year.
And, I am entering this card in the Sugar Pea Mix it Up Challenge #27 for January.

For this card, I stamped the acorns and used copic markers to color them for the background panel. I used a new fishtale die from MFT for the center piece with my cute squirrel. All of the stamps are from "Nuts About You" from Sugar Pea Designs. I cut off the acorn the squirrel was holding and substituted a heart for Valentine's Day!
