Peony birthday - C4G #204

 It's time for our new challenge at Cardz 4 Galz.  Our theme is "P is for..." (Anything that starts with the letter "p.")

Here is my card with peonies on it...


I dry embossed a Kraft panel with Darice Honeycomb.  The peonies are The Ton Stamps Peonies Cardmaking Memories.  The leaves and "happy" were in my box of extras.  The heat embossed "birthday" is Raisin Boat.  A few sequins finished it off.  My placement of the sequins is not the best, but the one I wanted higher was the last one I placed, and it fell off of my jewel tool on that spot, so I couldn't move it without leaving an ugly glue spot. LOL

Faith, Hope, Fight, Love - TMS #717

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  The card I've got today was simple to make, but not easy to make.  A dear friend has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, so I made this for her... 

I don't have much purple and thought the lavender would work, but I realized it was too light.  I cut 2 layers of Die-versions Whispers Awareness Square in lavender and one in black, layered them for some dimension, then colored the top layer with a purple Spectrum Noir marker.  

Here's our sketch...

Happy birthday cool cat - C4G #203

 Happy Thursday to you!  Thanks for stopping by to check out my creation for Cardz 4 Galz #203!  Our theme is "cats or kittens" so we've got some adorable cards!  Stop by the blog to see them!  Here are my kitties...


These cute kitties and sentiment are MFT Love You Furever.  My paper is DCWV Playful Pets.  The frames were easy as I used Sizzix Stacked Tiles and was able to cut all 5 at once! The sentiment is cut with Kat Scappiness Wonky Wavy Stitched Fishtail Banners.  A triple twine bow and some adhesive dots finished it off.  
I need to take a photography class... this looks dull and dark, but it is bright and cute and girly IRL.  

And here are my real kitties!  We currently have 3...

Pixie is the definition of 'fraidy cat! LOL  But she's beautiful! 

These boys are proof that all orange cats share one brain cell!  LOL  
But they are fun! 

Please come and play along at our Cardz 4 Galz kitty challenge!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Christmas in July - TMS #715

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I know it's summer, I know it's hot, but I'm celebrating Christmas in July, so I made a Christmas card. ;)  (Actually, I got a new stamp set and really wanted to use it!) 


My ornament is Concord & 9th Yuletide Ornament.  I colored it with a couple of Copics and then used my Wink of Stella pen so it shimmers.  My paper is Graphic 45 Christmas Carol. 
You ever plan a card then have to change it mid-creation?  I did!  I had the card laying upside down, so I glued the banners on the bottom corner.  Grrr!  Fortunately, I realized it quickly and pulled them off, but there was some glue damage. :/  The sentiment had to go there instead of on the lower part of the ornament as I'd intended.  Oh well!  

Here's our sketch (I made it tall)...

Thinking of you - TMS #714

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Here's a card I am sending to a dear friend who is struggling with some physical trials right now...


Both of these paper scraps were sitting on my desk and the flower and banner were in my "extras" pile, so I ut my diamond shape, stamped my sentiment, and put it all together.   The flower is Sunny Studio Hawaiian Hibiscus and the sentiment is from Raisin Boat Stunning Silhouettes. 

Here's our sketch...

Jingle all the way - SCC #150

 Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian family and friends!!  I'm still hoping to one day spend Canada Day in Ottawa! 

And since it's July 1st, it's also time for another challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenges!  This month's theme is "include gold."   I heat embossed my sentiment in gold on my card...


My paper is Recollections Christmas Plaids.  My sentiment is Colorado Craft Company Merry Everything.  My image is actually from a Stampabilities wedding set. LOL  Hey, a bell is a bell. :)  I colored it in with a VersaMarker pen and heat embossed it.  
Here's the sentiment up close...


The year is officially half over, so come play along at Sparkles Christmas Challenge and get your Christmas cards ready early. :) 

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!
