Designers Choice Challenge with Repeat Impressions

Hello it is time for another Designer's Choice Challenge with Repeat Impressions.  Thsi time it is Karen's turn and her challenge is Sparkle, Glitter or Bling.  I decide to go with a little Christmas in July for my card.
I used #8808 Knit Cap Penguin and #8810 Snow Much Fun.  I started by masking the large rectangle area and then sponged the blue background.  Next I stamped #8912 Snowflake Solid large, #8914 Snowflake Solid small, #8916 Snowflake Outline small, and #8917 Snowflake Outline large in different shades of blue.  I purposely stamped out of the blue area to add interest.  I finished the background by adding rhinestones to the center of the snowflakes. Lastly I popped the penguin and sentiment with pop dots.

Now head over to The House That Stamps Built and get all the details of the challenge.  I hope you can join us in this challenge for a chance to win some fabulous stamps.  Don't forget to check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the RI Rock Stars.

Thank you Grillfather

Hello as I promised yesterday I am back with another card for Art Impressions Challenge to use sequins. 
I was in need of a thank you card for a barbeque my hubby and I went to and I knew I wanted to use  The Grillfather from Art Impressions.  It is hard to see in the photo, but there is "smoke" on the left side of the card.  I choose to use a bottle cap for the sentiment because if this were my hubby there would be a bottle of his favorite mirco brew nearby.  He loves to enjoy a cold beer while barbequing.  

Thank you for stopping by.

Bad Day in Progress

Hello I am stopping in with a  quick post to share a card I made for a couple of challenges.


I used Flamingo set from Art Impressions.  Isn't that flamingo darling?  I am entering this card into to The Mod Squad challenge to use a charm.  I made the bead charm hanging from the bow.  Next I am entering it into Art Impressions challenge to use sequins.  Wow that one was a stretch for me.  I only had some really old ones which I used on a card I will share with you tomorrow.  I went out and bought these for this card. Can you relate with this card?  I sure can.

Thank you for stopping by.
