On To Christmas!

My cards are all ready to go on Monday.  I stamped them all this morning.  No more Christmas cards to make, just a few tags for presents for the grands.  I ordered the last of their items from their wish lists. Phew.

In the meantime, here are a few cards that didn't get posted.

 this one was for the Inspiration Challenge at SCS.  I saw a beautiful gilded and white bowl, thus this card.

 Here is a step card made with die cuts.  I did add some light blue sponging to give it some definition.  I think it came out really well, and it even fit in a regular envelope.

 This Get Well card is made with two digital images from Cornish Heritage Farms.  I have been on their Design Team all year, and have scads of their wonderful designs.  I went with a monochromatic card, and it will go out to a guy, don't you think?

And last, but certainly not least, I made this pop-up card with an ornament and flakes.  It's in its envelope, and on the way to friends for Christmas.

Thanks for looking.

CCEE1348 Sketch

Here  is the sketch Cindy gave us for this challenge.

......................and here is the card I made for it:

I used some wonderful shades of purple and olive green.  The lilac is out of the box....a technique I love to do.  The papers are just scraps from my file, but I thought they matched really well.

We'd love to have you use this fun and easy sketch from Cindy. 

 Please join us, and link your sketch HERE.

See you next week.

CCEE1347 Embossing and Glitter

Cindy's challenge this week is to use Embossing (dry or wet) and Glitter.

I dry embossed the snowflakes, and used glitter glue on the snow and in the center of the flake.  I think this makes a really cute Christmas card.

Please join us, linking your card HERE, and come back next week for another fun challenge.

CHF40 Thanksgiving

Our hostess for today, Steph, challenged us to make a Thanksgiving card, since it's only a week away.

This is the front of the card I made, using a Cornish Heritage Farms digi stamp.  I colored it with markers and colored pencils, then fussy cut it out.  It's popped up on dimensionals.

The real treat is the inside..............

.......where I popped up a sign post with labels for the holiday, and added a CHF sentiment digi as well.

I hope you will feel free to join us, linking your card HERE.  Come back again next week for another challenge!

CCEE1346 Stitches

This week, Cindy challenged us to use stitches.  Since she didn't say REAL or FAUX, I went with the latter.  I thought my card was busy enough without taking out my sewing machine.....although it really is faster in the long run!!

I hope you like my little Whipper snapper bee and flowers!

Please join us HERE, linking your card, and checking in with the DT!

Thomas Kinkade Week at CHF

The Thomas Kinkade image from Cornish Heritage Farms I have featured this week is called "Streams of Living Waters".  I brayered the stamp with Wasabi green ink, added a sentiment and a strip of ribbon.

The image is so beautiful, I really didn't want to accent anything else.

Please go and look at Cornish Heritage Farms and see all the wonderful treats by Thomas Kinkade.

See you next week.

CCEE1345 Ribbon and Lace

Our hostess for the month of November is Cindy Haffner.  Her first challenge is to use ribbon and lace.

You can see that all I did was thread some black ribbon through the holes in the ecru lace.  I love the way it looks with a couple of bows.

Please join us, linking your card HERE, and be sure to join us again next week for another challenge from Cindy.

CHF39 Get Well

This week I am the Cornish Heritage Farms Challenge Hostess.  I gave "Get Well" as the theme.

This image and sentiment is from CHF's digital stamp category.   The dog is painted in shades of fact, most of this card is brown.  I added some black to give it some contrast.

Please join us this week, and every week, linking your card  HERE.
