My Texas Card

Popping by to share the card I made for my Parents.  They are getting older and I finally convinced them to move here close to me and to my surprise they agreed.  They will be here in August, Yay!! I am so excited to have them so close by, they'll be 10 minutes from me.  And now here is the card to Welcome them to Texas.

I am using it as my challenge card for the card group I am in too.   All in all I am happy about how it came out and I know they will love it.  Even if it has a few shakey hand ink mishaps, from my arthritis, they will still be touched by it!  I can't wait to have them here.....

Until next time,
Keep on Crafting

Another New Card

Evening Peeps! I have been busy crafting cards this week, still need to finish 3 DT cards and come up with a Welcome to TX card for my parents who are moving here, YAY!  And DH is away til the weekend so I have a lot more time to craft.  The card I am going to show you now I made for my card group challenge.  It will be a RAK (random act of kindness) for someone in another Card Group.......  First I Punched the border with Friskars Bubble punch, added a backer card colored with Copics to match the tiny buttons (from Micheal's) added down the side in bright cheery summer colors.  I then embossed the buttons and stitching with Cuttlebug  EF's (embossing folders) and lightly colored them with chalk.  Added alittle faux stitching around the card edges and then the sentiment was attached.  That's it easy peasy......... So here it is:

 I still have a lot of cards a to make and share so it's going to be a busy week crafting here :)  Thanks for popping by and viewing my cards, makes me happy to share all my creations with you all.

Until next time,
 Don't let the bed bugs bite...................

DT Post for challenge #47- 4th of July

Howdy all and a Happy early 4th of July to you all.  The challenge over at Created with Love this week is "4th of July" where I am on the DT.  Our sponsor this week is Stamp and Doodle and I choose this cute and adorable lil dog image to use from them.  I had a hard time deciding how to use them but after playing around a bit I came up with this card front that I made a stand for and it will be used as a table decoration to celebrate July 4th.  The image is called : "Blowin in the wind".  I am a Pet Sitter so this was natural choice for me.  Hope you like it!

Well that's all I have today.  Now you just need to come join in the fun over at CWLC Blog and you could just be one of the lucky winners, who knows.  Hope to see your creations there.

Until next time
Bye Ya'll

Some Thank You cards

Hey there everyone,
Just wanted to share some Thank-You Cards I made yesterday afternoon.  We all need to have Thank you's in back stock right?  So these where very easy to make and I really love how they turned out.  I used Momento inks, Pearl Ex, rubber stamps (Stampabilities - dotted background, Magenta-Floral, Sentiments- Hero Arts), and a little bling.  They made up quickly too. The last one was done with the Pearl EX and has a really pretty shimmery effect, but you can't see that shimmer in the picture, sorry.  So here they are:

OK they are very basic but that's what I was shooting for. I am happy with the outcome!  Thanks for coming by and visiting. Don't forget to leave me some love.......

Until next time,

A new card

Hello and a very happy Sunday to all.  First thanks for stopping by and leaving all the sweet comments.  I do read everyone on them and it means so much to me to get them, Thank You!

Now I made a card yesterday and it's a Thinking of you card.  I got a new Martha Stewart Punch, one of those ones that punch all over the page.  It's called "Caning Pattern".  I Love it, Love it Love it! It's so pretty.  I made a very simple card.  I used ivory card blank, some pretty Yellow floral scrap paper I had around and of course the punch.  Layered the two up one one side of card from added a small lace ribbon and some shimmery bling.  I then embossed Thinking of you.  I really like the way it turned out, kinda has a oriental feel to it.  And Here it is:

I am entering this card in the following Challenges:

Card Camp #21  -  Bingo Card - choose 3 

Through the Craftroom Door - Anything Goes 

Have a fun Day!

Until Next Time,

The digital image is from a lady, named Anne Fenton.  She is a great artist and gives some of her images away over at Outlawz Group online every once in awhile.  I also used my spellbinder dies and embossing folder.  Colored the image with my colored pencils and OMS.  Attached everything with glue dots and added a bow, that's it.

So come on and join us for some fun and great prizes.  Hope to see your wonderful creations at the blog this week.  Thanks for popping by and visiting and stop by often, I'm creating some new stuff......hope to share it all soon!  Have a fab, fun crafty day.

Hi, It's time again for another Fab and Fun "Anything Goes" Challenge over at CWLC Blog, where I am now a Full Fledged DT Member as of this Challenge.....WOOHOOO!  I love making cards and sharing them with you all, really I do!  Hope you go by the blog and join in the challenge.  But I must be a downer for just a moment and remind everyone of one of our rules that some people seem to be not following.  You can only enter your card/project in a total of 10 challenges, if you enter it in more it will not be eligible for a prize, it will be shown on the blog but you will not be able to win any prize.  So please try to stick to this.......OK, I don't like to see any your crafty items be disqualified.... :(

Now for my card:  I used a Doodle Pantry Image and my Inkadinkadoo stamp set and color box inks.  The inside says " Your Scentsational! "  I am very happy with it.  Hope it inspires you to come join in our challenge and who knows you could be a winner!  Thanks for coming by and visiting me.....
