Muse Challenge #192

This card is made for the challenge at Muse Card Club this week.  I put some crackle glaze on the aspen leaf, but it's not easy to see in the photo.
My inspiration for this card came from this week's muse card by Tracey McNeely:
Thanks for stopping by.
We finally had a little snow on the front range, winter is on the way :)

Read - Relax - Repeat

I made this card for the challenge over at Less Is More this week.  The challenge is to make a one-layer card with the theme Books / Literature and this stamp set from Newton's Nook was perfect :)
My sweet cat, Boo, sits and watches me while I'm on my laptop, well sits and watches is a stretch as he walks back and forth some of the time and steps on the keyboard and makes a mess of things.  I just love the little guy (see my sidebar for his photo).
Happy you stopped by today.  Hope you enjoy reading as much as I do :)

Needed to add a few more thank you cards to my card box so I would have some ready for the times a thank you card is needed.

Happy you stopped by today.  Broncos just beat the Saints, Yeah!!

Ice Cream Birthday

Ice scream, you scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM!  I still say this and think of how we used to run inside for 25 cents (yes, 25 cents) when the Good Humor truck came down the street :)

I made this card for the challenge over at Muse Card Club this week.  The inspiration card is by Anita Bowden:

So glad you stopped by today.  Think I'll go get some ice cream!!

I read, I read a lot.  Books are full of wonderful stories, history, chills, travels, you name it, you can experience it by reading a book.  When I saw this week's challenge at Just Us Girls I knew this was the stamp set I would use.   It's a word challenge and the word is "Encouragement".  There are many books full of encouraging words and phrases so what better card to make for the challenge.

So glad you stopped by.  The Little Prince, now there's a book :)

Vellum Butterfly

I always think of using vellum on my cards, but never seemed to get around to it.  Well, I finally did, the small butterfly on this card is vellum and I'm happy with the way this looks.  I borrowed the butterfly dies from a friend and although it's not exactly butterfly season I plan to make a number of butterfly cards with the dies before I return them.

I am entering this card into 2 challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today. Another warm, pretty day in the Rockies :)

Did someone say french fries....

Another new stamp set (can't help myself ); this set is from Wplus9 and is called Happy Birds.  I love these birds and the sentiments with the set are so funny (see what I mean).  I made this card for this week's challenge at the Muse Card Club.  My inspiration came from Estelle's card by:
  1. The 3 leaves in a row
  2. The geometric shape of the leaves (the birds are somewhat geometric too).
  Here is Estelle's pretty card:

Happy you stopped by today, fries, anyone?  Ha ha ha :)
