We have snow again....for the second time...hope it leaves again...but our fall has been wonderful!

I have a card here I did for our twisted sisters challenge and that was.... TSC1107, opened to anyone who would like to join.

to use a brayer and ink up an EF....this is my take on the challenge....




The two colours I used was Not Quite Navy ink,  on Baja blueCS,.both from SU, and both retired.....I love these two colours together.

The poinsettia is from spellbinders, and the Merry Christmas from SU: not sure if I know what set...





The snow is from Michaels, and called powered glitter...it is quite different from regular glitter...gives a powdery effect.

Sweet baby - Sympathy

Hi Everyone...

I have a card here I was asked to make for a couple who lost their sweet 5 month old baby girl.....So sad...

Here is the card:




I just got these angels wings a short while ago, they are a ODBD die cut, The paper is SU Prettiest Pink,(retired & missed) and whisper white, the ribbon is also from SU (retired)

The Cross is from ODBD... also a die set... I used 2 of them, the smaller on top of the larger.






 A very simple card to make, I wanted to keep it soft...I thought the feathers added that perfect component.

Paper: Pink, white
Ink: Memento black

Hi Everyone...welcome to my world...

I did a card for the Queen for the day challenge over at SCS, this is the card I cased...

And this is my card....





I love the layout of this card... the camera didn't do it justice...the flower is a 3D sticker from Michaels...





My papers are a bit more blue/turquoise combo....trying to find papers that go well together is so hard....I like to put all my colours together in baskets...cut into 6x6....then can flip through the colours...and still hard..lol\


Recipe:
Stamps:    SU: Elementary Elegance, 
Paper:     DSP from stash, blues
Ink:   Marina
Accessories: Rhinestone, Flower Sticker from Michaels, Foam Tape, Liquid Glue, & Love:

MMTPT322 - TSC, After the Rain:

Hi Everybody...Welcome to my world!

I so much enjoy the teapotters Tickle me's...this is my second one, I don't have the time to join in every week...so I like to be able to get the tickle me one in.

This time we are to do something associated with rain...I chose to do SU'S Ark.

This is my card:



This was a fun card to do...I started out with the BG...sponged a sun, and sky, they are under the velum clouds( which are SU's ef, I coloured the backside of the clouds with white Copic paint, comes in a jar)

I also sponged white SU ink on the waves with a make up sponge.



I painted the ark, and fussy cut it out...

Now for the story:  

Can't find Noah, He's somewhere on the ark hunting for two stowaway mosquitoes! He's looked high and low...But they are very well hid...their passports are null...their  pictures were blurred, and we all know ya got to be able to see the eyes.

Sure hope he finds them before they find land...the rain has stopped and the dove has been sent out...so time is running out! Oh well....I think we all know the rest of the story....Ouch!!

Recipe:
Stamps: SU's Congratulations, 
Paper: WC paper for base, SU Baja (retired) Mustard for Sun & BG, Navy, and Vellum.
Ink: Copics, SU's Blues for sky BG. Copic white for clouds,
Accessories: Spellbinders Waves, Sheer two-toned ribbon, Inabilities Sponger brush, scissors, Foam Tape, Liquid Glue, Glue gun & Love!
