NOT a Christmas Card!

YIKES!!!!!  It's NOT a Christmas card!  What's the world coming to anyway!

Nope, no Christmas card here - just a birthday card I sent to a very dear friend the other day.  The image is from Taylored Expressions and the hat from Tim Holtz.  Very simple card but hey, that's what I do.

I had this exact expression on my face the other day.  My daughter keeps giving me things to do (whether I want to or not) and had asked me to redo a wreath for her school.  The sucker was HUGE and the tackiest looking thing I'd ever seen in my life.  Honest!  So, I set up a table and stuck it up there and worked my magic.  (THAT'S a joke since there is no magic at all in my fingers when it comes to things like that.  I'm not a florist or wreath maker or whatever and don't pretend to be either).    Anyway, I had to run to the local craft store to get some things to go on the wreath and this is where "the look" comes in .  First of all I had to park about a half mile away just to get to the store.  This isn't good.  Got in there and if there was one person there were 4,000!  No reason that I could see other than it's close to Christmas.  So, Lynn put the smile on her face and braved the crowd.  Got the stuff I needed and after standing in the checkout line for an hour, came home.  It's no wonder people shop online anymore.  My Christmas spirit left as soon as I saw that wall of people in the store!   But......the good news is that I did finish the wreath and it was passable ok! 

Thanks for stopping by...................and SMILE!

More Plaid

I walked into one of the local craft stores here the other day and was amazed at all the plaid.  Everything and anything was in plaid.......maybe even a little bit too much.  I swear there was a stuffed plaid hedgehog in there!  Seriously!  Anyway, I love plaid.....love, love, love it. 

So, why not make another card with plaid on it.  Using a die from MFT I cut the plaid tree, added a gold star with another die and then stamped the greeting.  Super CAS but since plaid is all the rage right now, I think it'll be great for Christmas.

A New Year is Almost Here! - Jan's Digi's

Time again for another wonderful challenge at Jan's Digi Shop ChallengeIt's an Anything Goes challenge again.  Come on over and enter your card or project for a chance to win.  Jan has gorgeous digi images and so many to chose from. Check out her shop HERE!

It was impossible to get a good picture of this so after about 20 tries I gave up.  I used some Nuvo Glimmer paste in the sponged circle and it sparkles and shines so pretty - but doesn't photograph so good.  The images are from 3230 J New Years Eve.   So many more images are included in the set.    Check them out.  I don't normally send out a card for New Years but with images like this it's going to be hard not to.  Anyway, I did some sponging with distress inks on the circle and then popped up the images for dimension.

Is It Snowing Yet - PIP Challenge

There's a little "snow" on this card and hoping there's not a lot of snow where you are!  It's time again for another challenge from Pammie's Inky Pinkies ChallengesIt's really coming down to the wire on getting Christmas cards done but if you'll check out the images from Polkadoodles (who is our sponsor) I'm sure you'll find a cute one to do.  They have so many different images to chose from.

Polkadoodles provided images for the DT to use and I selected this one.  I think that little boy and girls are so cute - and I can almost hear them singing!  I colored them in Copics, used an oval die cut, and then mounted them on a Sheena Douglas snowy looking embossing folder.   

Be sure and come on over to Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge and enter.  It's an Anything Goes challenge and lots of fun.

Get Honking - It's Almost Christmas - 2CCC

Time to get honking is right!!!  It's almost time for Christmas no matter how you look at it.  It's also time for another challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies!  We'd love to have you join in our challenge this month.  Just be sure to have some type of critter on your card or project.

Our sponsor this month is Beccy's Place and they provided the DT with the images for this month.  I thought this little guy (Grumpy Goose) was outstanding and he's ready for the holidays with bells on his.....not toes, but neck!  He's even got his Christmas hat on too.  I embossed the white panel he's perched on and then mounted that on the patterned paper.  Lots of dimension with this guy too since he was cut out and popped up.

Happy Thanksgiving

T Day is finally here!  If you celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow.  We'll be stuffing ourselves with stuffing and hopefully having a good time.....and I'm sure we'll be eating way too much.  I never have figured out why we do that to ourselves but I guess for one day out of the year it's ok.  Our family is joining with another family and we should have around 30 people show.  We'll be having turkey, dressing, and ham of course - and then counted and realized we'll also be having 23 side dishes!  Eek!..............No wonder we stuff ourselves! 

Anyway, this is one of the Thanksgiving cards I made this year.  The wreath is an image from WPlus 9.   The sentiment has been embossed in gold.  The unknown patterned paper seemed to match the colors in the wreath perfect. 

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see everyone next week...........and have a nice day!

Christmas Penguin

What's not to love about a chubby little penguin!  Makes me want to break out the movie Happy Feet.

This is a very CAS card using a die from My Favorite Things and an image from Taylored Expressions.  It's colored in Copics and as I said, very clean and simple - but fun too.

This may be the shortest post on record but hey, it's Monday.  .

I'll enter this in the challenge at Sweet Stampin' Challenge - A Pop of Red and at The Cats's Pajamas (holiday)

Oh Deer

It's getting a little close to the countdown for Christmas now so you're going to be seeing some pretty clean and simple cards here.  What am I saying anyway..........That's what you normally see here!  Oh well.......

This was really a quickie and it has more of masculine feel I guess.  I LOVE that deer die from KaiserCraft.  I think the sentiment banner die is from Simon Says Stamp.  As far as the sentiment.....your guess is as good as mine on that.  The problem is that I have all my Christmas stamps in a canvas crate type thing and in order to say which set the 'season's greetings' stamp came from I'm going to have to get up, walk over to where the crate is, and then dig through there looking for it.  I seriously doubt anyone really cares where it came from so........laziness is kicking in and I'm not going to look.  If you HAVE to know, shoot me an email and then I'll go look!  Nothing like a little honesty here.

I'll enter this in the Your Next Stamp challenge - #127 Mad for Plaid

Christmas Skates - Jan's Digi's

 This is my second post for today.................

It's time again for another challenge at Jan's Digital Stamps Challenge.  Once again, we have an Anything Goes challenge  and would love to have you join us.

Also once again I used the pre-colored version of Jan's digi image.  It's called Christmas Skates and using the pre-colored version makes for a quick card ....... and we can always use those at Christmas when there's so much else going on.  I used a VERY, VERY old Nestie die - one of the first ones I probably ever got - to frame out the pair of skates.  The background paper was in my stash and I added some Close to My Heart organza ribbon and a bit of gold twine.

Thanks for stopping by.............and check out Jan's Digi Stamps and enter your card or project.

More Mice - PIP Challenge

Here's some more mice for you - and just in time for Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge too!  It's an Anything Goes challenge so be sure and enter your card or project for a chance to win a wonderful prize package from Di' Digi's!

I used one of Di's Digi's images on my card and kept it very simple.  It's colored in Copics and then mounted on some red and white candy stripe type paper - and a piece of twine added.  As I said, very simple - but still think it makes for a cute card for the holidays.  Gotta love those mice!

T Day is Almost Here

Thanksgiving is almost here.  All the turkeys are heading for the hills to escape the butcher.  However, some of them have gone into disguise.  This one is pretty sure he's still going to be around next year since he has his Groucho Marx disguise on.  (If you don't know who Groucho is, look it up and you'll see what I'm talking about - and yes, I just gave you a hint of my age too.  Yikes)!!!

I used this same design on a Thanksgiving card last year but with a different turkey.  It's almost time to get them in the mail so I basically just "CASED" myself I guess.  The turkey is from Art Impressions and all the paper I used was just some scraps.   Another one of my "git 'er done cards". 

I'll enter this in the challenge at Paper Funday Challenges (Anything goes with twist: Thanksgiving)

Thanks for stopping by..............and have a nice weekend.

Moldy Green Cheese Trees

I made two cards similar to this and then realized, well DUH!!!!!  That's cheese for the Christmas trees and should be the color of the cheese.  UGH!  Just think of them as being moldy cheese trees.   YES! 

The stamp set is from Sunny Studio and I fell in love with it as soon as it was released.  There's just something about mice and Christmas......not sure what that something is, but I love it.  The "snowflakes" in the background are from a Lawn Fawn die and the sentiment from Taylored Expressions.

So, no matter - green cheese trees (trying saying that real fast a couple of times!!!!!) or cheesy looking trees, we still have a Christmas card.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets).

On The Road At Christmas........Jan's Digi's


 This is my second post for today................

There's a new challenge - in fact, it's the very FIRST challenge - over at Jan's Digi Stamps Challenge!  Yep, new challenge and my first post as a design team member for this very talented artist.  Yahoo!!   Some of you may have seen her work when Sparkle and Sprinkle blog was around. 

We're very excited to begin showcasing Jan's digi's with this new challenge. It's an Anything Goes challenge so stop by and enter your card or project for a chance to win.  Also become a follower if you wish and then keep coming back for more fun challenges.

For my cards today I used Over the River digi stamp.    Her stamps come in pre-colored or black and white.  For my cards today I used the pre-colored version because there's just too pretty not to!  I went over them with colored pencils to make them pop a little and that was it.


Jan's Over the River set is so pretty and I know you'd enjoy making some wonderful cards for Christmas using it.

Be sure and check out our new challenge HERE and Jan's shop HERE.

Fun Elf - PIP Challenges

It's time again for another fun challenge from Pammie's Inky Pinkies!  It's Anything Goes so stop by and enter your card or project.  The winner of this challenge will receive a gift code to use at Mo's Digital Pencil!

I used one of Mo's images for my card today.  Isn't that just about the cutest little elf ever!  Loving those pointed ears!!  It's colored in Copics and then I used a Taylored Expression strip sentiment.

I got this whole thing done, snapped x number of pictures trying to get everything done just right, got it uploaded to the blog - and OMGoodness!  We have a burned out bulb!!!    I just noticed I colored all the light bulbs on the string - except for one.  I'm so thankful the entire string didn't go out with it like they do in real life!

A Girl and a Deer - 2 CCC

It's time for another challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  It's always an Anything Goes as long as you use some type of critter on your card or project.  Super easy since we all love the critters!  We're being sponsored this time by The Paper Shelter who so graciously provided images for the design team.

I kept my card very simple today using Holy Night.  The image is colored in Copics although this image does come in the colored version also.   I added glitter to the ground, tree, and snowflakes.  The background paper is from a piece that I had in my stash and no idea where it came from.  I finished it off with some ribbon and pieces of gold twine.

Happy Hallo-weenie!!!



It's a Fun Friday - and it's not even Friday yet!  It's Halloween - or as Rambo says, Hallo-weenie!  I'd been looking for him a light weight t-shirt to wear in the house when it's chilly and finally found this one at a local pet store.  He already has a sweater but needed something light weight.  Like it or not he's getting older and just like a little old man, his hair is starting to thin out some.

He doesn't look happy at all in this picture but he LOVES his t-shirt.  The Trick or Treat words even glow at night.  He really thinks he's sharp looking - and he is!

And since we're talking about weenies...................Um..........



A very CAS card for this Halloween.  I used a stamp from Chicken Girl Design - who is sadly no longer in business.  This was one of the first stamp sets I bought on-line and of course it's filled with tiny little dachshunds.  Love it! 

So, Happy Halloween or Happy Hallo-weenie - whichever you prefer.  Have a great day!

Fall

Wouldn't you love to have your Radio Flyer wagon again - or maybe you still have it!  I remember mine.  We'd tie a strings around lizards necks and take them for rides in it...............Back in the dark ages for sure.  Now we'd be turned in for animal abuse.

This is an image from Impression Obsession that I've had for a long time.  It's called Wagon (SHU:H1884). I try to use it every fall because it's so neat looking.  I colored the rocks in the background a little too dark for my taste, but it's done and will still be ok for a card.  It's mounted on some very dark green polka dotted paper.  Looks almost black in the photo.  I added a strip of orange paper and then the frame piece and some twine.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Impression Obsession (Harvest Treats).

A Bear

Yep, it's a bear.....just sitting around doing nothing.  I guess he's being a bum like I am on some days.  I needed a couple of thinking of you cards so I made these the other day.  I used a stamp set from MFT that um.......I bought last year before Christmas and still hadn't used.  Shame on me!

Anyway, as I said - it's a bear.  Sitting.  Doing nothing else but thinking of someone.  I did a little stenciling after masking the bear and that was it.  Both of them I made are already in the mail now.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More (Clean and Simple).

Charming

This is so like what my life goes like at times.  I saw a challenge somewhere and really don't even remember where it was - but you had to use a charm on your creation.  I got really busy and made this clean and simple card using a snowflake looking charm I've had close to forever.  I framed it out with one of the new SSS sets of stamps and called it done......and even liked it.  Went over to add it to the challenge - and realized I was looking at the last weeks challenge instead.  So typical but it's ok because  now I have another card for Christmas!

All Signs Point to Halloween - PIP Challenge

I used some Halloween background paper for my card today.  The "Boo" sentiment is from an older CTMH stamp.  Of course I just had to add that die cut bat and give him some googly eyes too.

Boots and Bags



Believe it or not, I think this may be the last of the litter on Halloween stuff.  I sent two of the granddaughters a gift box and these little bags with a necklace were included - among other things.     The cards were tossed in there too.

For the cards I used the boot and sentiment from Taylored Expressions and swiped some distress ink on them.  The black was sprayed with the Glitter Dust stuff - and that's one of the reasons for the terrible photo - too much shine or something.   The other reason for the terrible photo is probably due to operator error -----

I used a Lawn Fawn die for the little bags and then also used some stamps from there too.  Made a few clouds, added the bat, and they were done.

I really think this winds up Halloween around here so it's time to move on to Thanksgiving and then Christmas.

Halloween Gets the Boot - or Shoe



Giving the boot (shoe) to Halloween with my card.  The boot/shoe and sentiment are from Taylored Expressions.  I used some different colors of distress inks on the boot/shoe.  Added the black frame, big bat, spider web, and spider die cuts.

For some reason I've made a few Halloween cards this year - and remember, I'm the one that doesn't even like Halloween!  Eek!  The kids have fun though so I guess it's ok.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Cute Card Thursday (Halloween) and Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets).

Thanks for stopping by...........oh, and in case you haven't noticed - I'm not doing any commenting on the weekends.  In fact, I seldom even look at Blogger then.   I'm not being rude, but this is giving me time to make a few cards, catch up on computer emails, etc. and just generally being a bum.  I'm getting pretty good at the bum business too!!

Fall Colors

I'm loving those wonderful colors of fall ........ and I'd really love that wonderful weather of fall too!  We really are cooling down a bit around here though so that's good.  Anytime we can get a "cold front" that cools us down to the 80's around here we're excited!!!

Using a stamp set from Impression Obsession (Solid Tree)  I made a one layer card today.  The trunk of the tree was stamped with some distress ink and the leaves were stamped using some Taylored Expression ink.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Impression Obsession (colors of Halloween or fall)

Summers Last Frog

I received a reminder the other day that I hadn't done a Funny Friday is a long time.  It's actually been right at a year now.  Maybe it's time to start them again ever so often.................Right, Connie?

I mean you just HAVE to smile when you see this cute frog from QKR!  She's a doll isn't she....and everyone should be smiling today since it's Friday!

This is actually the second frog that I colored.  I got the first one all done and it was on my desk waiting to go on a card and the next thing I knew Bentley the BEAST (my daughters dog) was gnawing on it!  Ugh!  It must have fallen  off my desk - and believe me, anything that hits the floor in this house belongs to him....shoes, socks, paper, TV remotes, telephones,pencils, towels....you name it and it's probably in his belly.   In fact, the other day we had to take him to doggie ER due to swallowing a ponytail scrunchie.   Rambo just gives him a "you've got to be kidding me" type look.

Anyway, since it's October now I can safely say that everyone around here has put up their bikini for the winter - and are wishing summer was already back again.

I'll enter this in the challenge at QKR Stampede (anything goes) using my QKR image and the challenge at Cute Card Thursday (anything goes).

Flowers and Meditation

Flowers............what more can you say about this.............

I used the Zigs to color the flowers (MFT) and then stamped the sentiment (Wplus9).



Rambo's meditating....................Actually he's just soaking up some sunshine.  I hadn't posted a picture of him in a while and know you were probably dying to see him.   He's happy.  My daughter has a part Schnauzer and part Yorkie that Rambo and  I call the BEAST.  He's only a little over a year old and wants to play all the time of course.  Rambo wants to sleep.  Whenever he can get a chance like this for a little peace and quiet, he loves it  (In other words.......Bentley the BEAST is driving him nuts)! 

I'll enter this in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (Think Pink).

Splat, I Love You THIS Much-2CCC

YEA!  It's time for another challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.........and this little guy definitely is feeling the craziness!  Or maybe he's just in love?   He's one of the images of a set from Beccy's Place called Frog Hop.   Beccy's Place is our sponsor this month and has such cute images so be sure and check them out.

The fun frog was colored with Copics, cut out and placed on the distress sponged brick wall. (It sorta looks like someone threw a frog against that wall and it stuck - Splat!!!!!  YIKES!!!!)  The sentiment is an old one from Stampin' Up.  I added a couple of tiny hearts and it was done.

Be sure and stop by 2 Crafty Critter Crazies and enter your card or project for a chance to win.  Just be sure and have some type of critter on your card.

White on White on White

I just heard on the news that Texas may be getting a pretty good cold front in next week.  I doubt very seriously if we'll see any snowflakes like this here but the cooler weather will be welcomed for sure.  I do hope it snows this winter though so I can see if Rambo is going to love it or hate it!

Lots of white here - but with a little gold embossing too.  I used a stencil for the background "snow" and some texture paste.  The snowflakes were made with Impression Obsession and Lawn Fawn dies.  I also added some clear "whatever they're called".  The sentiment is from Sugar Pea Designs.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches (sketch) and Rudolph's Day Challenge (Christmas).

A Couple of Roses



Just a couple of roses today using a stamp from Sugar Pea Designs.  The first one, being yellow, would have to be the yellow rose of Texas I guess.  The second one, in red, is just a rose.  I'm still not sure why I tried distress ink behind this one but I did so it is what it is.  Looks a little dirty or something!  Yikes!

They were both colored with colored pencils and that's about all you can say about them I guess.

I followed the sketch at Case This Sketch so would like to enter that challenge.

Foxy for Fall - PIP Challenge

Time again for another challenge at Pammie's Inky Pinkies and our sponsor is Lawn Fawn!  Be sure and enter your card or project for an Anything Goes challenge for a chance to win $25.00 from Lawn Fawn!  How exciting is that!!!!

Today is the first day of autumn - well, unless you're living in Texas.  Autumn probably won't show it's face around here for a while and we may be lucky if we even see it.  Sometimes we go straight from summer to winter.  Anyway, back to my card...........

An autumn card for the first day of autumn......   I used Into the Woods from Lawn Fawn and created the scene inside a piece of white wood looking card stock.  This was then added to a piece of wood looking patterned paper.  (Lots of wood looks around here!)  I added some die cut leaves, cloud, and twine.  The "smile" speech bubble was also in the same stamp set and I heat embossed it with a platinum embossing powder.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Cut it Up (use die cuts - and I used several different ones including the fox, cloud, leaves, etc) for  Into the Woods, Creative Knockouts for Anything goes) and Pixie's Crafty Workshop for snippets.  

Thanks for stopping by..........Be sure enter at Pammie's Inky Pinkies!  We'd love to see your creation.

A Couple of Ratty Looking Cards

Well Rats!!!!!!!!  Pretty ratty looking cards for you today.

 Even I can't believe I'm finally playing along in the Twofer Challenge!  The theme is critters and critters is one thing I have plenty of in my stamp collection.  I've had this stamp set from  Katzelkraft for a while and just haven't inked it up until now.  So, it's the first time using the set and the first time playing in the challenge!

Both are very clean and simple and pretty well self explanatory as you can see, so I won't go into everything I did (or didn't) do. As I said - the rats are from Katzelkraft,  The sentiment on the one of the right is from Taylored Expressions.  Not sure where the sentiment on the left is from.

So anyway.........there you have it - a couple of rats!

Raking it Up - Not In

I think if I post more cards for fall or autumn, the weather will change and we'll start having cooler temperatures.  Don't want snow like some places are actually having now, but a little chill in the air would feel good.  Raking the leaves like this little guy is getting ready to do wouldn't feel so great though.

I used an image and sentiment from Darcie's and it's colored with Copics.  A little layering of papers, some twine, and it was done.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Cute Card Thursday (Autumn) and Pixie's Crafty Workshop (Snippets).

Thanks for stopping by............and have a great weekend.

This STUFF

I'm so disappointed because you can't see this STUFF on my card!  Bummer!!!! 

I'm now considered a "city girl" since I live in a city now I suppose.  Not sure you can take the "country" out of me though.  Anyway, one of the advantages of living here is that a couple of the big box craft places are right down the road.  I've never had that luxury before so it's a little different knowing if I run out of something, I can just run down the road and get it.  Before I'd make about one trip every couple of months to the city and stock up on things. 

ANYWAY.......back to business........I was in one of the places the other day and found this STUFF.  I'm sure everyone reading this has a can of it and has used it before but I'd never even seen it.  I guess I was so busy trying to stock up on things I never even noticed it.  

Glitter Dust!!!   Oh my!  That stuff is wonderful.  I finished my very, very, VERY simple card and decided I'd try it.  Took it all outside and sprayed away (Rambo looks like he's ready for a night of partying with glitter all over him too)!!!!!!  Even though you can't see it in the picture, it really did make it shine. Nice!  

As far as the card goes..........the usual..........distress inks, sentiment from Simon Says Stamp, some clear sequins, and that glitter dust. 

Thanks for stopping by............

A Little Boo and Fantastic News!




First of all -  FANTASTIC news!  I was asked to be on the design team at Pammie's Inky Pinkies challenge blog and of course said a big YES! It's a wonderful challenge blog and I'm so excited and honored to be part of it.

We don't have a sponsor this time but PIP will be offering  a wonderful prize in the form of a gift certificate to Mo's Digital Pencil.    Fabulous images to choose from  as you well know.  It's an Anything Goes challenge and we'd love to see what you create.

Halloween will be right around the corner, so I've used one of Mo's images for my card today.  It's colored with Copics and the sentiment is from MFT.  I added a little patterned paper and twine and the card was done.

Thanks for stopping by.........and be sure and enter Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge.

A Couple of Horses - 2 Crafty Critter Crazies

It's that time again - another critter challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  We'd love to have you join in on our challenge - just make sure you have some type of critter on your card.  We're being sponsored this month by QKR who also provided us with some wonderful images.

First up  - all in grays and blues.  I LOVE this image for a masculine card.  I didn't even attempt to color it because I think it's so dynamic looking just as is.  I did run a little bit of green over the grass but that was it.  It's framed out super simple and the large silver circle star was added with some twine.


I'd like to enter this card in the QKR Stampede Challenge - Anything goes

Since I'm still trying to do more than one card with either a stamp set or an image, I have this pretty horse framed out with some green plaid and solid green paper.  The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions.  Guys need to be told they're fabulous every so often I think.

That's it for today, but be sure and check out 2 Crafty Critter Crazies and enter your card or project.
