Merry Christmas to all.....hope you all have a good one...

I have a card here that was ordered by a neighbour...who wanted a card for her boyfriend's  birthday....and also Christmas Combined...with a sweet message.

this is what I came up with...and I think its very romantic!!




This is also for our Twisted Sisters challenge, and that is to use and Embossing on your card, wet or dry...I brayered my embossing folder with SU: Bordering Blue ink, (retired)  and ran it through the big shot...




It's an easel card....I love easel cards...a little more work...but they stand so well....






I also did one for my dear friend from church for her anniversary...she fell in love with it....its not an easel, but she wants to frame it...so good I didn't do easel!






This is a close up of the romantic one.....

Hi everyone... Winter is here for sure...we got got dumped on for the last 2 days with snow....so now time to plow out...

 I made a card to fit 3 challenges, 

 This is my card:



 And lesson well learnt.....that is when you put your gems on your tree...do it after you cut out your oval in your bigshot..or cutting machine you use...









lolol...mine got squished...but left them ..cause it worked out..they don't shine as much...but then thats cause I didn't plug them in yet...will wait till dark.....lol.


Ok...my 3 challenge spots...


1. 
ODBD: is to use 4 letters from the word blessings, I used B = Bow, S= Square, N= Netting, G= gold...ODBDSLC218..

(2) Is for the tuesday Teapotters; MMTPT330, and to make a card using wrapping of some sort or gift wrapped, I chose the tree with gifts under...all wrapped!

(3) is for our Twisted Sisters; TSC1128..and the challenge is for Something Homey, or warmth..again my tree is at home in the living room, all decorated...

My card is 5-1/2 x 5-1/2 didn't plan it that big...just how it worked for the tree, and didn't plan with the mesh...but that worked out good too...

Thanks for looking... Merry Christmas to all....

Hi Everyone...Welcome to my world....

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.

Recipe:
Stamps: ODBD Carried to Heaven, Dies: ODBD Angel Wings Dies, And Ornamental Crosses,
Paper: Pink, white
Ink: Memento black
Accessories: SU Ribbon retired, EF, Feathers, Tiny Bow, Foam tape, Liquid Glue, Glue Gun, & Love:

QFTD231 - Queen Darbaby

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:

I love the layout of the card cased...think I will make a few more in different colours.

Thanks for Looking
Blessing to all.
