Hello

Hello ! I'm stopping in with a quick share for the Color Throwdown weekly challenge. I recently picked up this fabulous stamp from a de-stash. I need to do that one day, but I can't bear to part with any of my stamps. I'm sure they'll take over one day, but that's ok with me. Thanks for stopping by.

CCC #17

Hello! I'm back to share another card for the Christmas Card Challenge. When I saw the inspiration image I immediately thought of using the tree image from the Tim Holtz stamptember holiday set. It is perfect! I stamped the image, embossed it, then smooshed some distress ink over my paper. I plan to make a few more like this in different colors. Thanks for visiting me, see you soon.

Greetings from Niagara Falls. That is where I'll be when this posts. I was way over due for vacation. I have been so scattered lately. When making this card, I had it all finished then I noticed I put it together wrong, it was upside down. Hopefully I will come home refreshed .Growing up I visited the falls numerous times, my grandfather lived in buffalo. I have wanted my boys to see it for sometime now. I'm sharing my DT card for the CC&S sketch challenge. I have made so my sympathy cards recently I felt like making a happy occasion card, a baby card is happy. See you all soon.

My boys are getting older now and don't want to ride their bikes anymore. I plan to have hubby ride our tandum bike with me. I'm sharing my DT  card for CC&S 's color challenge. For those of you that have been following me for awhile knew I'd use some kind of watercoloring. I hope you will play along with us.

Pin-sights challenge

Hello,  I'm still crafting away my day. I feel very productive today. I wanted to play along with The Classroom's Pin-sight challenge ,but thought I ran out of time. Happily there are just a few days left. I took my inspiration  from the cake image . I am not too good at marbling with watercolor... I need work on that. I die cut the Essentials by Ellen Hello sentiment from some shiny gold paper to complete the look. Thanks for visiting.

Happy Sunday

Hello, Happy Sunday to you. I started my day with some relaxing yoga at the lake , only I got there late and had to be in the super sunny spot. I'm very fair, so I turned a little pink. I am going to play in my craft area for awhile today . I recently bought this floral stamp (the ton ) and wanted to water color it an orange tone, then I noticed this week's colors at color throwdown and decided to play along. Thanks for stopping by.

CCC #16

Hello, happy sunday to you. I'm enjoying a long weekend, not much planned . Sometimes just being able to relax is enough for me. I'm stopping in to share a card for the Christmas Card Challenge . I used an older stamp/die set from Hero Arts. I fuzzy cut it out, because the die left too much white around the edge for the look I was going for. I watercolored the background with some distress ink and used a distress marker and a waterbrush to color the ornaments. Thanks for stopping by.

saturday stamping

Hello ! I'm enjoying some stamping time today. My oldest son wanted to have friends over last night, so he cleaned the house before and cleaned up after the friends left. So I have lots of free time today. I am playing along with the AAA words have power challenge. I'm completely out of birthday cards so that is what I'll be making for a few weeks. I went for a more masculine look for this card. Thanks for stopping by.
