Congratulations!

Today's card is one that is inspired by "Less is More" a clean and simple challenge blog.  If you haven't seen their blog check then out here.  They have some pretty amazing cards on there!  Anyway, I made this card for a bridle shower for one of that gals at church.  I guess I should have taken a side view picture so you could tell that there is a heart cut out and the top piece of Very Vanilla is raised using dimensionals with the congratulations stamped on the base of the card.

Apothecary Art ~ Thinking of You

Today's card is for some dear friends that lost their mother/grandmother this week. :(  She was such a lovely, wonderful woman and will be missed!  She always had a kind word to say, and was friendly and easy to talk to.  I had actually made this card for my upcoming February stamp a stack, and as I was going through my sympathy/thinking of you cards I decided this was the one I wanted to send.  


Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Apothecary Art Birthday

It's time for another sketch challenge from the Red Hot Stampers.  I thought I'd use some colors I haven't used lately and the new set Apothecary Art with the Framelits Labels from the new Occasions Mini Catalog.  To see some other cards with this sketch go to the Red Hot Stampers blog.  Play along too if you'd like!


Yes, I finally did something on the inside of my card!  Kind of plain and simple, but better than nothing. :)

Boho Blossoms Birthday

Here's my last card to share with you from my January stamp a stack.  It's definitely more of a spring  card, but when I was planning my cards it was more like spring out anyway. lol  Wow has that changed over the past couple of days!  I think we're finally having winter here...at least for a couple of days.

Fabulous Florets Watercolor

Here I thought I was doing a little better blogging and my router decides to die on me...and, of course, all my pics are on my laptop and I can't send them to my blog w/o the internet!  Well, I finally managed to get the laptop (from my daughter...after all, it's not working) and find just the right cord to hook up to my laptop so I could get a picture to my blog...whew! lol  Anyway, this is another card I did at my last stamp a stack.  I thought I was really going to be challenging the ladies with the water coloring on this one (using the aqua painters).  I did a little bit, but their cards all turned out lovely!

RHSSC19 - Amour

Well, I sure have been enjoying the snow we've had so far here in Michigan!  I really don't like being cold, but I do like seeing everything covered with the white fluffy stuff. I especially enjoy seeing the trees covered in white. :)  Now on to today's card...it's Sunday so that means it's time for another Red Hot challenge.  Here is my take on the sketch. I'm not big into Valentine's Day, but thought I'd do a card that's half way there by using some Valentine colors and adding "amour". :)  


You can join in the challenge too if you'd like.  Just head over to the Red Hot Stampers blog here.

Hello Kitty Birthday

Today's post is a tradition I've started with my nieces for their birthdays...making them a purse and card, then putting a couple of other fun things in it.  I saw a Hello Kitty pattern by Lynn Pratt here and thought it would be the perfect thing for a four year old.  So cute!!




Thanks for looking and have a great day!

RHSSC18 - The Open Sea

It's time for another Red Hot Stampers sketch challenge and here is my take on this week's sketch.  As soon as I saw the diagonal on this sketch I knew I was going to make a masculine card and use The Open Sea set.  Love this set because I don't have to think a lot when I use it.  Of course, it helps when I have a great sketch to follow. :)  To see other cards using this same sketch click here.
