CCEE1444 Make a Scene!

The challenge is to make a scene.  I'm good at that.  Oh!  A card scene......well, I'm not as practiced at that, but here's what I did.

I can't remember what it's called, but I had some ink left on my brayer, and I rolled it on some white cardstock.  I saved it, and used it as a basis for this reflection card.  I added one of my favorite sayings, and I love it!!  Doesn't this look like a wonderful winter scene?

Please join us today, and every Thursday!

CCEE1443 Autumn

Our challenge from Liz and Lynn is to make a card using the rich, wonderful colors of Autumn.

I love the beautiful jewel tones in the leaves, but not the omen they give regarding the end of the year!!  I just got these fabulous die cuts, and was delighted to use them for this card.  Pretty, even if I do say so myself.  Please join us.

CCEE1442 Halloween Fun

Our challenge this week is to make a Halloween card using our favorite ghoul, ghost or monster.

The children and grandchildren in this family have become zombie fans (who can figure!), so this card will go to one of them.  I added a bunch of Halloween stuff that I really like, especially the ghosts and drippy blood, so I guess part of this is MY favorite!  Please join us!

Owl Birthday

Today I made a card using only punches.  White on white is fabulous, don't you think?

I used the Owl punch for the three owls, of course.  The balloon is the 1" circle punch, and the branch comes from the bird punch.  I finished up with the party hat punch.......all these are from Stampin' Up.

you can see that I made a non-standard card.  Usually I make an A2, but this one is 6" x 3 3/8", and will fit in a check sized envelope.

The cord is silver, the eyes are rhinestones, and everything is popped up with dimensionals.

Thanks for taking a peek at my card today.  I hope you are all having a wonderful and relaxing long weekend.

CCEE1440 Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Liz and Lynn are the Hostesses for the month of October, which is also Breast Cancer Awareness month.  We were asked to make a card, and send it to a survivor.  Mom and I are both breast cancer survivors, but I'm not going to keep the card will go to my friend in Pennsylvania who is finally in remission!!!  Here's the card for Elaine:

Please join us, and send a card to someone who will be uplifted by it!
