MMTPT343: Hooked on Fishing

Hi Everyone!!

Here we have a challenge from last week , and that was to do a Get Well card for Harry...

This card is for Harry, the hubby of yabadodo, our very own teapotter.
We were told to use wood, and my scriture reading is inside which says:

"I will restore you to health...declares the Lord.
Jeremiah 30:17

Get well soon Harry!





PS: forgot to mention...the big one got away...had to mount the rod & reel!! lol

I just made a simple card...used WC paper for base, Espresso brown, and DSP...3 sticker type brads....glue and lots of get well wishes.


Thanks for Looking
Blessing to all

TSC0220 : Nathan's Girl

Good Evening Every One...

I am behind in my posts...got the cards up at Split-coast...but never over on my blog....

I better hurry and get caught up...

This card was for a Twisted Sistah challenge in Feb.




This must be one of my favorite Layouts...I seem to use it lots...but i love layers...

This is a Tilda...and the little girl is called Rachelle...and yes she liked it very much!!





A little closer look...I used crystal effects on the balloons...Love how this makes a 3D sheen on images!

I use WCpaper for card base....gives it a good firm base on which to stand....
Then I used White to stamp on with memento ink, and coloured with copics..
A few little gems and rhinestones for the corners...and a little lace and viola...you have a nice card...

Thanks for Looking:
Blessings and Hugs

Happy Birthday Fish Tank....

Hi Everyone...Wow ...another post...sometimes I don't get a post up for weeks, and here got 2 in one day....I must be slipping....lol

I have a card I did for a friend for her boyfriend...He has a fish tank, quite a hobby...so she wanted a card with fish on it...so this is what I came up with....




My daughter send me some DSP with fish on it...So I used that for the BG, and then fussy cut out some of the plants, and some more fish from another scrap piece, and popped them on foam dots...





There is no way I could catch the depth on camera, but it is all popped on foam dots, and I added gravel, shells, etc. on the bottom of the tank...

It did turn out very well....and looked realistic....

Thanks for Looking...this was a fun card to make!!

TSC0123: Key to My Heart

Hi Everyone..Welcome to my blog....Come sit for a while, and have a peek...

I have a card I did for our Twisted Sisters, and the challenge was to have red on the card...better if its a Valentine's card...but don't have to be...




The hearts are Cherry Lynn die cuts, and the border is a MS punch, the ribbon is Cherry red seam binding...





The little rhinestone gem on the heart, is a little heart in itself...not sure that shows up....





A different view...shows a little bit of the layers, and depth...
The Verse is from ODBD....from the set of " Key to Heaven"

Thanks for Looking...

MMTPT336: Sister Heart

     What a beautiful day we have here...but so icy...was freezing rain...but so nice with the sun shining...


.I did this card for the teapot Tuesday, and this card goes to Joyce... her story broke my heart, about losing her close sister!

I couldn't find a flower for the corner that suited...so this bird...just popped up and said "Use me, use me...I fit perfectly!! and guess what...she does!!

I hope my card cheers her up alittle...

inside verse: May time heal your heart, and memories comfort your soul. With Sympathy.

(and believe it or not...that verse is from an ODBD Paw Prints set...lol animal sympathy.)




here's another view....




I realize I should have had this up sooner...

This was a fun card to do and colour...my copic skills are not the best...but have learned a lot by doing...and looking at other with tutorials etc.


Thanks for Looking
Blessings & Hugs
