Muse Challenge 185

I am just loving these  Muse Card Club challenges.  I recently added Altenew's Hennah flowers to my stamp collection and when I saw the pretty flower card  Aileen Ryan made as the muse card I knew these new stamps were going to fit the picture :)  Here's Aileen's Muse card:

I can't seem to stop making flower cards.  A few months ago flowers started appearing on all of my cards and I'm just not ready to move on to Halloween, Fall and Christmas cards yet.  I better get moving though, it will be October 1st tomorrow.

So happy you stopped by today :)

My card was a Top Pick at Inkspirational on October 15, 2016.

The challenge at Inkspirational this week is the word "Glamour".  A few ideas came into my head for this challenge and my card above is the one I chose to enter into the challenge.

I have had this dress stamp by Hero Arts for years and I never get tired of using it, it's so pretty.  I was inspired to use the cut out shapes on the card by a card Birgit made, please check out Birgit's blog HERE.  She makes fabulous cards and I get much inspiration from her.  I typed the sentiment on my computer, I have a stamp with this sentiment but it was too big for the space on the card.

So glad you stopped by.  Enjoy being your Glamorous self :)

I have recently made a bunch of Birthday cards, so what's one more?  I made this card for 2 challenges this week:

Case This Sketch - sketch below and Seize The Birthday - Soft & Simple

Thanks for stopping by today and a pretty day it is here in the Rockies :)

You Are Amazing...

Our visit to Africa in August was just that, Amazing!  So when I saw this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches I die cut some Penny Black "on safari" dies and chose this color set for my card.

Here is this week's sketch:

Happy you stopped by today!  Isn't Life Amazing :)

Muse Challenge #184

My card was a Featured Member card at Muse Card Club on September 26,  2016!

I made this card for the challenge at the Muse Card Club this week.  Blue and green are my favorite colors so it goes without saying Turquoise is a fav too.   The pretty Muse card done by Jenni Murray for the challenge this week is so pretty I was inspired right away; here it is:

Happy you stopped by today.  Enjoy the pretty flowers, winter is on it's way soon :)

Black, Yellow & Red

I made this card for the challenge at Just Us Girls, color week - black, red and yellow.  One can never have too many birthday cards and this little cupcake was perfect for the JUGS colors.

As it turns out, TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY!!  I share the same birthday with Sophia Loren and anyone who knows me well, knows this fact :)  ha ha ha.  My sweet husband bought me a birthday cake and took me to lunch at Pappdeux today.  Delicious!

So glad you stopped by today and a happy day it is.

Woof Woof - Hot Dog

I have 2 friends who have dachshunds "hot dogs" as I call them, so when I saw this cute little dachshund stamp I had to have it.

This card is for my friend, Karen, and I also made it for this week's challenge at Casology:

Thanks for stopping by today, if you have a dog go ahead and Bark!

Cascading Flowers

The Penny Black Flower Cascade stamp is so pretty; I have seen many cards created with this stamp and I had to add it to my stamp collection.  I fussy-cut the flower cascade after coloring the flowers with my Zig markers and although I am color challenged most of the time, I'm happy with the colors I used for the flowers on this card.

I made this card for Challenge #360 over at Just Us Girls this week, Add Sequins.  

Thank you for stopping by today.  Sprinkle some sequins around and shine :)

So glad you stopped by today :)

Love Rocks!

I added this heart stamp set by Ranger to my ever-growing collection today; got it at Tuesday Morning for $2.99.  Just couldn't believe the price, I love this heart and it is a perfect fit for this week's challenge at the Muse Card Club.  I am also submitting my Love card to the challenge at the Simon Says Wednesday challenge - Anything goes!

Here is the Muse card from this week's guest muse, Sarah Platt:

I've been missing in action for a few weeks because my husband, Mike, and I were in Africa.  We were on safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana and we ended our visit with a few days in Cape Town, South Africa.  It was a wonderful trip, exciting and restful at the same time :)

So glad you stopped by; Love does indeed Rock!
