CC&S 224

Hello, hope your week is going well so far. I am less busy now that my son only has 1 afterschool activity. This leaves my more time to create things. I'm starting on graduation cards , I will need several. I liked this sketch because it works well for this small die I've been wanting to play with. I hope you will join us.

CCC #13

Hello, happy sunday. I'm recovering my a craft show I did yesterday. I sold some of my cards. Being of a few design teams , means I always have more cards than I can use. So when I can I try to sell off my extra stock. This week's Christmas Card Challenge features a die cut wreath. I hope you will play along with us. Now off to soak my feet... I was on them all day yesterday.

CC&S 223

Hello, happy tuesday. Only a few more days until the craft show I'll be at .... getting nervous. I set a goal for myself to take 250 cards to sell , not there yet. I see alot of late nights this week. When I saw this week's colors I thought tone on tone floral right away. I can't wait to see what everyone else came up with. See you soon.

Pin-sights challenge

Hello, I'm finally home and have a chance to share this card for the Classroom's Pin-sights challenge. When I saw the pins this month I knew I wanted to do the hydrangea in purple. I love this stamp , it's so pretty.  I love Pinterest ( kind of an addict 30,000 pins ) , so this is a challenge I will embrace whole heartedly . Well now off to bed, it's been a long day and I need to warm up after standing outside in the cold for a track meet. See you soon.

CC&S 222

Hello, hope your week has started out well. I'm really running around these days. My youngest is in track and baseball , I work 40 plus hours and I'm trying to get ready for a craft show I'll be doing later this month. I chose to flip this week's sketch , I just liked it better this way. I really had a hard time envisioning the end result for this one. Numerous attempts in trash . I am pleased with this one. Now off to make more.

MIM #283

Final card for the day, promise. I created this for a co-workers birthday. Playing along with Papertrey Ink's MIM challenge, water color wash. I watercolored the background paper and then added this gorgeous die cut and a sentiment. Simple, didn't take much time (except for the paper to dry) and I'm pleased with how it turned out.I plan to make a few more using this design and other colors and sentiments. Thanks for stopping by.

Still crafting away

Hello, I've been busy most of the day crafting. Enjoying the quiet time alone after a busy week. I'm playing along and trying out for the design team over at AAA cards. As soon as I saw their inspiration photo I thought of this stamp set. I thought about doing more colorful feathers, but settled on a tone on tone color . It just looked less busy, more clean and simple. Wish me luck! see you soon.
