It's Party Time

We have a lot of Birthdays around this time of year.  Today is my Wonderful Amazing Mother-In Law's Birthday.  Happy Birthday Marilyn.  

 Here is one I've created  it's perfect for anyone.  I've used my Silhouette to cut everything for this one.  I did refrain from adding glitter so it was more neutral.

I wold like to enter this into the Daring Cardmakers challenge Balloons today.

Hearts and Love


I've been busy creating Valentines.  Which really wasn't my intention but I guess I've been inspired by all of the beautiful projects around the web I just can't help myself.  Well that and a lot of the cool color challenges have a Red element, which makes it a no brainer.

Today I have a card using my current favorite watercolor medium Brushos and Tulip Tie Dye powder.  The red strip is created using those two items on watercolor paper.  Once it was dry I used a Memory Box stencil Hearts Heart Confetti and white embossing paste.  The patterned paper is from my stash.  The Love in the heart is a MFT die Heart Full of Love cut from a blue scrap and silver mirror card.   For a little more texture I've added some twine with a bow.

 This card is for three challenges:

1.  Daring Cardmakers - January Inspiration Picture
I've used 3 things from the picture first the color, second the twine and third the heart shape with silver around the edge.

2.  Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge - Stencil It

3.  Mojo Monday - Sketch #430

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope your having a Happy Sunny Day!

For A New Heaven Sent Puppy

Good Afternoon.  It's a cold snowy day here so I've been at it some more creating some cards.  I was so excited to use this new stamp set I got last week from MFT - Top Dog.  Mostly because of all the little long dogs as you can see, they are stamped and cut out of patterned paper.  I also ordered the paw print background which I've stamped in Versamark and embossed in Clear all over the background.    The greeting is a combo because I wanted it to represent a new Puppy in the family.  The Heaven Sent is from Mama Elephant - Starry Night the Puppy Dog Kisses is from the MFT - Top Dog set, I just cut apart a longer greeting.  I'm pretty happy how it turned out kinda like I saw in my mind.  I did add a bit of glitter on each puppy but it really doesn't show in the pictures it's so tiny. 
 This card is for a few challenges first the MFT Sketch Challenge #262:

Then the Color Throwdown - CTD #374 -

Lastly the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Something New 

Thank you so much for stopping by again today, I know 2 posts, but it's fun right?  Have a Happy Day filled with Puppy Dog Kisses.  Stay Warm!

Let It Snow Bunny

Good Freezing January Morning!  It's below zero here and it's snowed so this card is very appropriate.  I love love love how the little bunny is looking up at the sky watching the snow fall down.  This one is done for the current Lawnscaping Challenge #121 - Winter Wonderland - Create a Winter Themed Project.

I've used a few LawnFawn stamps here today the bunny is Hello Baby, the snow is a New one for me Snowy Backdrops,  and the trees are from Let it Snow.  The "let it snow" phrase is die cut Let It Snow Border.  The scallop pinpoint circle is Memory Box where I stamped the trees with Wendy Vecchi Archival ink then masked and airbrushed the sky with Copics.  The snow is stamped over that and embossed in white.  I Copic colored the bunny, cut it out and popped it up with foam tape.   I was excited to use some plaid paper I got this past week from MFT and a New to me embossing folder from Sizzix.

Hope you like it thank you so much for stopping by.

Simple Love

Happy Sunday!   I was having fun this weekend creating some cards for challenges!  Here we have a Valentine.  I love how it turned out using only one older background stamp from Stampin Up French Filigree, stamped directly onto the card front,  a die cut word by Die-Versions "Everyday" Compliments and some little heart rhinestones!  I stamped with Ranger Archival Ink.  So pretty. 
I am going to enter this card into 2 challenges today.

First  "Less is More"  - One Layer Card with a Flourish Week 258
Second  CASology - Cue Card - Simple #179

Such fun cards and happy colors!  Have a wonderful day thank you for stopping by.

Pizza Party Time

Good Afternoon!  I've just been coloring which is a great way to start the new year!   Today I've colored a few Lawn Fawn images with my Copic Markers.  First from the new Pizza My Heart set, pizza and pizza box and the animals and  balloons are from Party Animal.  I did cut apart some of the greetings to create the Pizza Party sign.  I had fun building this little scene!   Dave did come by and ask me why my balloons had fish hooks?  As always a very helpful critique....hee hee.  I still Love how it turned out fish hooks and all.
 I'm entering this one in the Simon Says - Party Challenge here
Thank you so much for stopping by I'd love to hear from you if you visit!  Have a Happy Tuesday!

As promised NO more Holiday cards.  Today I have one that could really be anything.  All of the products used are My Favorite Things Stamps.  I love this cloud background die and had to finally use it.  When I saw the sketch below for the Wednesday Sketch MFTWSC261 I knew immediately what I would be doing.  Using my airplane and the clouds was ideal.  This would make a great birthday card or even any type of celebratory event! 

I had so much fun playing along with this challenge!  I can't wait for the next one my new MFT order will have arrived so I will have new things to play with!  Woo HOOO!
Thanks again for stopping by.  Can you tell I'm excited the kids are back to school?   Have a great day!

Last Christmas Card For Awhile

I promise for now.  I'm done now for a bit.  But think of it this way I will have a few when I start getting ready for next Christmas.  This one is for the Fusion - Season Greetings Challenge.  There is a sketch and an inspiration piece, you can see these below or on their blog.

I chose to use both items.  The focal image is a Unity Stamp.  The holly and berries are from Silhouette and the paper is from Echo Park.

Thanks so much for stopping by and putting up with my residual Holiday Card issue.  Have a Happy Monday!

Silent Sound of Snow

Good Morning.  Happy Winter everyone.  It's finally arrived here brrrrrr...... it's in the low 20's here as I type this.   We're all bundled up in our flannels snug as bugs in a rug.  Well until we have to take the doggies out to go potty then it all becomes a thing. Short little dogs with short little legs do not think Snow is "MAGIC".   I however do and I love love love this stamped phrase from IndigoBlu! I just had to used it for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge #281 you can see the sketch below.  I know it's hard to read the greeting on the card with all the little snowflakes about but I've put a picture of the stamp set below.  The background here is is created with Distress Inks and Inka Gold in Silver and Memory box stencils.  Everything is layered onto blue shimmer paper by Coordinations. 

12-24 PPA 281

The fun tinsel twine I found at a little shop with stalls quite some time ago.  I've just been waiting to open it up and use the fun vintagey tinsel!  I did cut the circles and scalloped with Memory Box Open Studio dies.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I promise clearer image next time!  Have a wonderful warm cozy Sunday.  I'm off to work!
