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.

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 wintersims1@aol.com 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!
