Happy Anniversary

I wanted to make a card for my ex-bosses for their Anniversary which is this week.  I dug into some old SU! stamps and came up with this card.

The flower is from the retired set titled Embrace Life and was colored with Copics, trying to match the retired papers.  I began by stamping the En-Francis background stamp first after masking off the area for the flower.  Then I stamped the flower and colored it, adding a few dots with a White Shapie  for the stamens.  My final step was to add a couple of sequins and cut it out with SB dies.  I decided not to put a sentiment on the card front because I hand wrote a message on the inside.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Wishing you all a great day.

Home Sweet Home

I'm sorry I've been MIA for a while but I've been busy getting an apartment ready for a young ex co-worker move into.  Also we are experiencing close to freezing temps this morning and they say it will freeze by tomorrow morning so we have been busy taking things in and preparing everything on the outside for this weather.   Well anyway here is my card for my little, sweet co-worker.

I used a pre-colored image from Deedee Anderson's set titled "Home Tweet Home" and the sentiment is by her set titled "Home Sweet Home".  The heart border is by MS punch and the paper is from my stash. The mats are Garden Green by SU!.  Well that is it for  me this morning.  Wishing you all a warm, pleasant Sunday.

Thank You

Happy Thursday Everyone.  I have been quite busy away from the house this week and haven't got into my craft room too much at all, but I did manage to sneak a few minutes in here this afternoon because I really needed to make a Thank You card.
I started this one by rubbing  yellow and pink Distress Inks onto my craft sheet and spritzing water on them and then placing my white panel down on them.  Then I decided to add some dots with an older Outlines Rubber Stamp with a light brown ink.  I stamped the Hero Arts sentiment in black and cut everything out with SB dies.  I added a flat white bow onto the oval.  I used some retired SU! paper and embossed the pink and designer paper with a Swiss Dot folder.  That's about it for me today.  Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy the evening.

Good Saturday Morning All.  I'd like to share a card I made for World Card Making Day.  Deedee's Digi's is having a great Tic-Tac- Toe game to celebrate the day.   She has some great prizes you could win and a chance to win a Guest Design Team spot on our team so how about if you hop on over there.  Here is my card.

I used row 5 Across on the Tic-Tac-Toe card (which you will find at Deedee's Digi site) which is to " Use Autumn Colors, Make a card and send it to a friend that needs encouragement and Use a Button.  My image is from Deedee's "Sunshine and Sunflower set".  This is a terrific set for autumn cards or scrapbook pages. I used the pre-colored image and just added some dots for my background and sponged the edges.  The sentiment is also from the same set.  I had my background paper and button in my stash. I added the black gems and green twine also from my stash and I was done.  I wish I had as much luck with my gardens as this little cutie does.  Those are some nice big sunflowers.  I'd like to wish you all a fun Saturday and thank you for your visit today.

W2SB Fight Like A Girl

I can't believe that W2SB's challenge this month is  Fight Like A Girl.    I just made this card a couple of night's ago for a friend of mine who, next week, will be celebrating her two year anniversary being free of breast cancer.  I hadn't got around to taking a photo of it yet, so tonight I immediately did.

I got this set titled "Passionately Pink by DeeDee Anderson a long time ago and made a card for my friend reminding her to "fight" and she will get the Survivor card on her anniversary. This is an amazing set by Deedee with the best images and wonderful sentiments to go along with them.   

This is a fantastic challenge to take part in and I love the idea the girls at W2SB had, if you don't know anyone that needs one of these card now, give a card to an Oncology Center near you and have them give it to their newest patient.  It is so important to let these women know we are thinking of them.  I have gotten away from card making a bit because I got involved in making hats for chemo patients and I just love spending most of my spare time loom knitting hats. The women tell me they especially love the "sleep  caps" to keep their heads warms at night.  I think anyway anyone can help is wonderful.  
Penny Ward, Congrats on your one year anniversary.  Consider this card for you also.   
Thanks for stopping by and I encourage to play along this month at W2SB.  

Deedee's October Challenge

Hi All, I'm here today with my card that I made using Deedee Anderson's Digi Of The Month Set titled "Pumpkin Patch". As with all of Deedee's sets, this one has tons of possibilities.  If you played along with last month's challenge you have already received this set via email.  If not you can purchase it at a very low price ( just $1.25) and then you will receive next month's set completely free.  Can't beat that!  You have almost an entire month to play along but why put off tomorrow what you can do today.

I used the pre- colored set and added a few of my own coloring touches and sponged in a sky with SU! Bashful Blue.  The background paper was in my stash and then I added the Brickyard punch in black backed up with a piece of white paper that I colored with the same color I used to enhance the pumpkins.  I have to enhance most pre-colored images because of my finicky printer.  I matted everything with black and I was done.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hope to see you again soon.  I am trying hard to get more card making time in.
