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.

Repeat Impressions Designer's Choice Challenge~Shaped or Fun Folds

Hello it is time for another Repeat Impressions Designer's Choice Challenge.  It is Karen's turn and her challenge is Shaped or Fun Folds.  I went with fun folds and created this easel card that looks like the inside of a ice cream shop.
 I used the center ice cream from #9008 Cool Treats that I stamped three times and colored with copics.  I started with a standard easel card base that I created the black and white checker board floor to hold the card open in the upright position. The counter is made with a with a piece of card stock that I folded the top inch down to create the shelf.  The holes were made with a standard office supply hole punch.  The awning was created with an old word window punch from Stampin' Up that I believe is long discounted.  This look could be achieved with a scallop boarder punch as well.  The sentiment is #9007 Sweet Things.   Here is a side shot of the card.
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.

Always On My Mind

Happy Monday!!  Today I have a card I made for the Peep of the Week over at Power Poppy.  Have you heard about Power Poppy?  Marcella Hawley (former illustrator for Flourishes) has started her own stamp company called Power Poppy.  Marcella is a fabulous illustrator and I am a huge fan. This is a my card to the challenge.  Azaleas grow very well here and I have several in my yard so I when I say this set I knew it was a must have for me. 

Thank you for stopping by.
