Birthday Card for Mom

Here's a quick Card I made for Mom's Birthday this Tuesday.  Used an Image from Heartfelt Creations and embellished it a bit with Glitter pen, not sure it shows well in the pic.  Then just made a step card and attached it with cosmic shimmer glue, which I love! Then used some paper scraps to finish off then step card and that's it.  Oh I did add some beige pearly bobs to the sides.... All done.  

   That's all for today....fighting Allergies and am feeling yukky so going to go watch a movie with DH.   Happy Sunday all.

Until Next Time,

Last Minute Holiday Cards

HI everyone.  I made a 3 more quick cards, rec'd some from friends and wanted to send some love back.  The items used to make the cards came from a Deb over at Society of Stampaholics , I won a challenge and the package included a ton of cool goodies to make cards with, Thanks Deborah!  Here are the cards, I made with them all in less than 30 minutes total....... The green and red background on the 1st  card was done with brusho powders on card stock.  Love my brusho powders!  

                Stamps used are from Stamp of Approval set, love these too.

        Gold Snowflakes are dies from Stamp of Approval set also.....

OK so that's it for me today.  House cleaning and Pet Sitting are calling my name.  Thanks for popping by and looking.  Have a fabulous day!

Until Next Time

2 last minute cards

Hi I want to share 2 last minute cards I made yesterday.  One is for my Mom, I know I made one already for her, but I gave it to her b/c she was down in the dumps and she loved it.  So made another for her to open on Christmas Morning....And a Sexy Santa one for My Hubby.........

 So there you have it....  I found a Sizzix die in my stash that I got at Convention and never even opened it so that's the one I used to make DH's card.   He will be surprised b/c I never make "Sexy" Cards ever!   Hope he likes it....

Well off to finish picking up the house and freshen up the guest room so my Mom can stay with us with her adorable little dog Christmas Eve Day and Christmas Day.  Hope every one is having a wonderful Holiday Season.  Hugs and love to all of you!


Until next time

Card for my Mom

Hi just popping in real quick with a card I made for my Mom for Christmas.  I have been so busy with something that I will be telling you all about in 2016.  But had to share this.  The stamps, snowflakes are from Stamp of approval set form Stamp Nation.  And the glittery snowflakes are punches.  Did it in blues cause that's Mom's favorite color........ Hoping she will love it.
Here it is......

I am also entering this in the Stamp Nation contest to win Next Months kit free.  Wish me luck! 

Until Nest Time,

Pumpkins and Brusho Powders

Aternoon All, here is another card done just the same way as the Owl Card from earlier today....
I used a wood grain stamp from Stamping Up for the fence.  Really pleased with the way this one came out.  I am just getting tons of use out of that wood grain stamp, never thought I'd use this much, LOL..... Well here is the card:

Brusho Powders and fall theme cards

Morning everyone.  I have been playing around with my Brusho Powders again.  I am loving these powders.  I decided to go for some fall colored pieces this time...

I took water color paper, from Elizabeth Craft, and sprayed it lightly with water added a few dashes of color from 3 different powder colors and some I pounced with a paper towel to dab up the excess water other just let dry for deeper color.......  Let them dry over night.  Then I went through my outline stickers ans found some that I felt were fall related  and fussy cut them out.  I love the way the leaves and owl look so realistic, don't you agree?  Would love to hear what you think?   Added some DP I had lying around and some Bling in the corners of the card.  That's it.  I am pretty happy with it.  Only need 5 more to be done with my Thanksgiving/Fall cards.  Drum roll please..........

Would like to enter in the following Challenge(s)

Christmas cards, again

A marvelous Monday to all my crafty friends.....  It is a very warm day here, supposed to be 98 and sunny definitely does not feel like fall yet!  I have been trying very hard to work on my Christmas cards for this year.  I have made a decision though, I am only sending handmade cards to those who I know appreciate them and know what I put into them and then I am making about 60 to take to the Nursing home where my MIL was at.  They can definitely use them for the residents.  My mom also is making a bunch of lap blankets to give out there too with all the scrap yarn she has left over form other projects.  So now for the cards I have made all since Friday.  

 So have you noticed a them here?  I am a big snowman person.  So I am using all the snowman stah I have not used over the years.  I am having a such fun too, LOL.  Love to hear what you think of all these Christmas cards too.  I guess I need a few cards to that I forgot about hmm maybe work on these today, who knows, will decide once I am sitting at the craft counter and see what mood I am in........

Have a fabulous Monday what ever your doing! 

Until next time

I've been making Card Sets

Hello Crafty Peeps!  Hope everyone is doing great today.  I have decided that I am going to give some of my very close friends for Christmas a set of handmade cards.  Probably 6-8 assorted theme cards.  You know,  Birthday, Sympathy, Thinking of You, Thank You ect...   I also have been wanting to make some envelope boxes for cards also, So of course I did.  And they are so easy to make it's crazy.  I used the envelope make from We R Memory Keepers to make my envelope boxes.  I saw a video by Jennifer McGuire on how to do these,  just search You Tube for envelope boxes and it will come up.  And now here are the cards and 2 envelope boxes I made.  Going to add ribbon to keep them closed.  

So that is all I have for now.  I am in a Christmas card swap so I need to get busy on those and will share once done.... have a great Tuesday all.

Until Next Time
