Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #13 - Have a Claw-some Thanksgiving


Happy Monday!

Today I'm sending my card over to challenge #13 at Lawn Fawnatics.  Here is the current graphic and this time the challenge is to make a fall inspired card.

 

I used the You're Claw-some stamp set for my my card.  After a bit of paper surgery, my shaker card came together.  It was challenging, but I love the results!

You can play along too if you have time.  Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawnatics blog to see all the fun inspiration for this challenge.

Have a great day and I'll see you again tomorrow!

Make Waves


Hello Sunday Friends!

I decided to try white heat embossing and some water coloring for this Mermaid's Tail from Ellen Hutson.  I've used this stamp set so many times, but I just can't stop.  I think it's the cutest and every time I see it, I want to use it again!

Oh well, enjoy this one or wait for the next one!  Either way.

See you tomorrow!

Tag You're It #73 - This is for You


Hello Friday Friends!

Here is my tag for the current Tag You're It challenge.  Can you believe how pretty the colors are on the inspiration photo?  That purple is just the prettiest!


I used Distress Oxide Inks to make my tag and like the inspiration tag, I spritzed the ink with water to get those fun spots.  I added a white doily die cut to the top of my tag and then a cute little sentiment toward the bottom.  I finished it up with some gems and am happy with the result!

Enjoy your day and I'll see you again tomorrow.

Curtain Call Challenge - There is No Limit to Your Awesomeness


Happy Thursday!

Here is my card to share over at the Curtain Call Challenge today.  I was totally inspired by the colors in this room.


Earlier this week, I promised I'd be using the Oak Leaf stamp and die set from Neat and Tangled again soon and here it is.  This time I used gold embossing powder and colored in the leaves using the colors from the trendy inspiration photo.

My sentiment is from the Mon Ami stamp set at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.  I think it is the perfect uplifting sentiment.

This is such a fun challenge and the team members are all so talented!  Don't forget to pop over to the blog to see what they have created.  And join in the fun if you can!

Have a great day and I'll see you tomorrow!

God is my Rock in Whom I Have Refuge


Hello Wednesday Friends!

A few weeks ago my stamping friend said she was going to order from PaperTrey Ink and she wondered if I needed anything.  Hmmmmmmm.

I discovered that PTI is carrying all sorts of large inspirational quotes and sentiments and I picked up six different ones!  And since I am obsessed with colored embossing powder at the moment, I used three colors on this one.

I am very appreciative of my enabler friend so I'll share more of these great PaperTrey Ink stamps soon.

Have a GREAT day!  See you tomorrow.

Inspired by all the Little Things #64 - Blessed


Happy Tuesday!

This week at Inspired by all the Little Things, the graphic for challenge #64 is just striking.  The blue with the dark copper just made me want to join the challenge immediately! 



I used the Oak Leaf stamp and die set from Neat and Tangled.  There are so many possibilities with this set so you will probably see more of it later this week!  This time I ran a few streaks of water color over my background and let it air dry.  Then I attached my die cut copper embossed leaves over the background.  The simplicity of the card meant a simple sentiment too.  I thought BLESSED would be a perfect choice.  A large brad and double looped bow finished my card.

I hope you have a great day and I'll see you again tomorrow.
