CHF43 Winter

Steph is our hostess for the very last day of the year.  She challenged us to make a Winter themed card.

I used a digi stamp from CHF called "Winter Chapel" (#2344), and a sentiment from the stamp set Night Before Christmas (colored with two markers).

Here is what my card looks like when it's closed.  I wanted you to see both.

 I hope you have enjoyed what the Design Team at Cornish Heritage Farms has shown you this year.  I also hope you have been stamping right along with us, and have shopped on occasion at the store.

I wish you a Happy New Year, and the best of everything for 2014.

Monday Challenges

Grandson John hit the hot tub bright and early this morning.  Very cold, but not to kids, I guess.  Mom and I made two cards, one for the Clean and Simple, and one for Technique (shaker).  Now, I'm going to show you both of them, but please forget them soon, as one or both of them may be off to you in the near future.

This is a simple case of Jen's card with a row of little bunny bottoms, which I did in white emboss, and added a simple knotted ribbon and a teeny cotton ball.

Here is the shaker card, which is filled with green and gold glass beads.  I haven't made a shaker in a long time, and had forgotten how extremely messy they can be .......like all over the room.

Now remember what I said ......... look, and then forget!!

Blue Music

This card was made for two challenges, the queen For The Day, and Free4All.  I used Elvis double-sided paper, and the layout from our Queen, Dara.  Not making too many cards lately, what with the Holidays, and our grandson John staying with us.  Thanks for looking.

Couple of new cards

It's been a busy week with Dr. and Dentist apppts, so here I am a little late posting a few cards I just finished.

This went to the girls in my Dentist's office.  I saw them both Monday and Tuesday.  They are always so cheerful!

The Gibson girl on the front is popped up, and I added some flourish leaves and a lacy background, as well as a popped poinsettia.  I thought they might enjoy a shaped card, rather than a regular rectangular one.

This card was made with a brand new stamp set  I got from my UPS guy yesterday.  The set is one I thought about for a long time, and when the price was reduced, I couldn't resist.

The layout is the sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers today.  the background is embossed, and so is the RED strip.  I painted the image, splattered it with some caramel color ink, and layered it popped up on the green and white.

I hope you like these cards.  Thanks for visiting my blog.

Thomas Kinkade Week

This week the Thomas Kinkade image from Cornish Heritage Farms is done all in sepia.  The title of this one is "The Village Lighthouse".  His coloring of it is fabulous, but since I am not HE, I took the easier way out.

Take a look at all the fabulous Kinkade stamps at Cornish Heritage Farms yourself, and see how gorgeous they really are!

CCEE1349 A Stocking

Frances is our Hostess for the month of December (which will only be two weeks of challenges).  
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house 
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
 The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
 In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.'

So Frances told us to include a stocking.  Here is my card for the challenge:

I love this little image from A Day For Daisies.

Please join us, linking your card to our blog HERE.  See you next week for our last challenge of 2013.
