Furry Friend

This week's challenge at Simon Says is Furry Friends.  The challenge is featuring Newton's Nook stamps; I just Love Newton's Nook stamps so have quite a few and used one of my favorites for this card.  I used my Zig markers for the blankets and Derwent Inktense pencils for Newton.

Thanks for stopping by today :)


Christmas is a joyful time of year, the Joy die on my card says that so well.  I made this card with 2 challenges in mind:

Muse Card Club - Christmas card by Ardyth (see below).  I took my inspiration from the tree.

The Card Concept - Retro Christmas.  I used the clean and layered style for my card.


So happy you stopped by today :)

White on White

The Paper Players blog is hosting a color challenge and as you can see from my card the color is White, white on white to be exact.  This is the first time in all my years making cards I made an all white card; I've not participating in all white challenges before because I just couldn't come up with something.  Well, I'm taking a chance, hope you like this.  I had to add a little color for the sentiment, because I am a colorful card maker most times :)

Thanks for popping in today :)

Warm birthday wishes

I just love the challenge I recently discovered called Cupcake Inspirations.  Every week there are different cupcakes to inspire us and who doesn't love cupcakes and a card challenge.  I used an older Hero Arts stamp set for my fussy-cut leaves and a sentiment from Stampin' Up.  Added some designed paper and a few gems too.

So happy you stopped by today :)

City Crafter Challenge - For the Boys

Hi City Crafters!  This week Amy is our host at City Crafter and she has chosen "For the Boys" as the inspiration for this week's challenge.  I used stamps from My Favorite Things for my card, this cute little bear and his balloons shouted "little boy" to me.  Please stop by the blog to see the wonderful cards made by the DT, join in and have some fun!!

So happy you stopped by today :)

Autumn thank you card

Autumn!  I made this card for this week's challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  I recently bought some Autumn design paper and I was so excited to see this sketch as I knew just the paper I would use on it.  In addition to the design paper, I used a leaf from Hero Arts, sentiment from Stampin' Up and wreath from Memory Box.  

Got this card done just in time for the challenge, whew!

Happy you stopped by today :)
