I am back with a second post to show you the card I made for the sketch on 2 Sketches 4 You. I also in entering it in Simon Says Challenge, "Let it Snow" and Stampin B's to make a holiday card. I used this cute Penny Black stamp and colored with copics. I used fun flock on her hat and coat. The snow was made by rubbing to styrofoam pieces together and using the shavings. It works great and is cheap and easy, but it is a bit messy. Have a wonderful Sunday and thank you for stopping by.

I know it seems a bit strange to post a Christmas card on Thanksgiving, but I moved on to Christmas about two weeks ago and frankly I am so enjoying Christmas already.
This is my first time making a card for Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger. When I saw the inspiration piece this week I had to make a card. I always want to join in on the fun, but time seems to always be too short. As soon as I saw the delicious gingerbread snowflake this card came to mind and I whipped it up. It was super fast to put together. I also worked in to other challenges which wasn't to hard considering that Stampin B's challenges is to add a snowflake, got it! The third challenges is from Simon Says and their theme is Let it Snow, how much easier can it get? I hope you are enjoying your day with family and friends and lots of good food. Thank you for stopping by.
Hello everyone I hope your day is going well. This is going to be a super short post. I am doing my baking today and the pies are in the oven and the house is smelling so yummy. I am not sure I will be able to wait until tomorrow to have some. I made this card for several challenges listed below.
I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. If you are traveling please be safe. I do have another card I hope to post later today, if not I will try to pop in tomorrow and post it then. I want you all to know how very thankful I am that you come by to see my creations and leave the wonderful comments, I truly cherish them all.
Today's card is for the Gina's sketch on StampTV. I used Very Merry Christmas from Gina K Designs and illustrated by Theresa Momber. This is a great Christmas set, I used it a bunch last year. After coloring the bells and before I removed it from the nestabilities die I sponged around the image.
Here is the sketch this challenge will run until Sunday evening and there is a chance to win a stamp set of your choice and if you use GKD stamps your name goes in twice! I am also entering this card into the Clean and Simple challenge on Spiltcoast Stampers and Meredth's Christmas card challenge.

Hello I hope you had a fabulous weekend. I have about 1/3 of my Christmas cards done now. I had pick up the pace or I will be finishing them after the New Year! I made this one for a few challenges I have listed below. One of them is for iCopic and it is a color challenge to use real red, yellow green, and egg yolk. I used what I had that was closest. The center of the ornament is colored with YG03 (yellow green), but when I added the glitter it totally changed it, much to my disappointment. I picked a translucent glitter thinking it would work. I will be back on Monday sometime with a card. Thank you for stopping by.
I starting to make a small dent in my Christmas card, but I still have a lot to do. Good thing I am off for the next week. I made this one for Gina's color challenge on StampTV the colors are green apple, lipstick red and white. I also used the sketch from Card Patterns, this one I took a little creative license. I am still loving this gorgeous set A Year of Borders from Gina K Designs and illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger. I wish you a wonderful weekend, we are expecting heavy rain all weekend so it will be a great weekend for staying indoors stamping.

This week the challenge for The Cuttlebug Spot is to make a thank you notes for your dinner hostess. It wouldn't be a Cuttlebug Spot challenge without embossing so I went all out and used three different folders on my card. That is a first for me, the most I had every used on one card before was two.
I recieved my latest order from Gina K Designs on Friday and I couldn't wait to ink up Melanie Muenchinger's newest set A Year of Borders. This set has to be one of the best sets I have every bought.

Hello I hope that your week is going well. I have this card to share with you today. I made it for the challenge this week for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge, How Distressing. I am making this a short post today as I am at a loss of what to say... Lately I am having a hard time with the right up on my posts and honestly you would most likely rather see the cards than read my babble. I wish you a wonderful rest of the week. Thank you for stopping by.

The challenge this week for The Cuttlebug Spot is Set the Table: Decoratins for Thanksgiving holiday. I choose to decorate a candle. To start I pulled out my crimping tool and brushed off the cobwebs and crimped the kraft base. For the next layer I embossed the green with a cuttlebug folder, sorry I can't find the name of it right now. The leaves are some paper leaves I found at Michaels and I embossed them with textile texture embossing folder. I added the sentiment and I was done. I made this last Saturday and I am still finding glitter everywhere. I love glitter, but it hangs around like Easter grass!
Here is a close up of the leaves.
This would be a great fast and easy last minute decoration for your Thanksgiving table or how about a Hostess gift. Make sure you go over to The Cuttlebug Spot and see the wonderful creations from the rest of the Design Team. And we would love to see you join us in this weeks challenge. Thank you for stopping by.
Hello I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was good I was able to spend a bunch of time in my stamp room creating and boy it did feel good. I made this card for three challenges. I started by stamping the shells with versamark ink on white card stock and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then cut out the circles with nestabilites. Before removing the circle I sponged with turquoise ink. Next I matted the circles with decorative circle nestabitlites die. I have had this stamp set Gifts From The Sea illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger for awhile and haven't used it much. I need to fix that as it is a great set with a lot of wonderful shell images. I will list the challenges below. Thank you for stopping by.
Hello today I have a card I made Mojo Monday's sketch and Lee Murphy's challenge for Gina K Designs release. I am squeaking in just under the wire on the sketch. Lee's challenge is to make a holiday card using non traditional colors. I went with pink. I did sneak a tiny bit of red and green for the holly on the snowman's hat. This is a short post as I am working on a few more challenges and some DT projects that I will be sharing in a few days. Enjoy what is left of your weekend and thank you for stopping by.
I think I am finally getting my creativity back. I am starting to feel like stamping again, this has been a long stretch. so that means I should get back to posting a little more. This is a card I made for Kraftin' Kimmie's challenge. This week is is Primarily Purple. I choose to go with a monochromatic card. I just love this sassy gal, her name is Polly. I have had her for awhile and just now got her inky. Thank you for stopping by.

I used Autumn Beauty from Gina K Designs and illustrated by Theresa Momber (my sister for those of you who don't already know). I love working with this set as it is Autumn and I get to use many of my favorite colors. I choose the sunflower, after coloring it I cut it out and placed it on top of a ivory piece that I ran through the cuttlebug and sponged with memento desert sand ink. The base is Pure Luxury chocolate brown and a mat and tag in pumpkin pie.
