CCEE1344 Dog Theme

 As my last challenge for the month of October, in honor of Adopt A Shelter Dog Month, make a card with a dog theme.

I just LOVE this image from Mo Manning!

My DD and her DH adopted a mixed breed dog named Nitro from the Sterling MA animal shelter, and he is the loveliest dog.  He is so well behaved that when the TV goes off at night, he gets up, stretches, and goes to his bed.

Please join us this week, linking your card HERE, and checking out what the DT has done with this challenge.  If you upload to SCS, don't forget to add CCEE1344.

I am hostess for the CCEE challenges this month, and the theme I chose for this week is flowers, the more the better!

I took a picture of my card on an angle so you can see all the layers that I cut out (and I won't do that again soon!) and popped up. I also stamped flowers all over the bg layer.

I hope you will want to join us in this easy-peasy challenge.  Please link your card HERE  where we can enjoy it too.  See you again next week!

CHF Palms

About this time of year I start thinking about island breezes.  I guess the prospect of Winter approaching gets the better of me.

these palm trees come from Cornish Heritage farms.  Don't they look inviting???

CCEE1341 Football

My challenge to the team at CCEE this week, in honor of Bret Favre's birthday, is to make a card with a football theme.

I love this image made by Bonibleaux Designs (that unfortunately went out of business) of a Tight End named Ted.  I wouldn't want to be facing him on the field!!

CCEE1340 Ovals

I am the CCEE hostess for this month. 

Opal is the October gemstone.  Since they are oval, I challenged the Team to make an oval card or to use ovals.

My card has four ovals.......I guess that's enough!

Please join us, linking your card HERE, and be sure to come back next Thursday as well.

Snowy Night

Today I used a basic sketch from SCS.  I adjusted it a bit to make it fit the idea I had........

Mom and I are making our Christmas card stash, and having fun making a mess.  My craft room is so overcrowded we are forced to use the kitchen.  Bit by bit, we will have everything in two rooms a wreck!!

We are off to enjoy a lunch at our favorite place.....we sit at the bar and have a glass of wine while we wait for our order.  Who could ask for more?

Have a fun day.  Whatever you are up to, I hope you enjoy!!

Thomas Kinkade from CHF

There is a new group of images at Cornish Heritage Farms, all from Thomas Kinkade.  The stamps are fabulous!!

For this image, called "The Good Life", I brayered with Spanish Moss, and highlighted with markers and sponges.

The sentiment is also CHF.

Please check out all the wonderful new stamps at Cornish Heritage Farms.  See you again next Tuesday.
