A Special day..

This is the birthday card I made for my sister.I was able to play with the new Authentique papers.I just love these blue tones,and combined with brown...in love ! ! Really like how good quality papers they are.I'm finicky when it comes to the thickness of paper.

Anyhow,as you can see I used a Magnolia image. I added some flowers and ribbon,which is new at Creative Accents.They got a boat load of new ribbon(actually they always have new stuff arriving-hard on the bank account,lol)I also added a butterfly form my stash and some die cut butterflies as well.It's hard to see but each layer has glitter as well as the butterfly.Oh and my flourishes...

I am entering the following challenges

Thanks for looking ! !

Ho Ho Ho... Mojo

Grrr I was supposed to post a couple of days ago but the card I had made ,my daughter spilled her juice on it.Sooo I had to make another.I haven't been feeling well,darn flu.So this card is very simple and quick to do but effective.Gotta love those cards,instead of my typical 2-3 hours.I used Mojo Mondays sketch.
The image I used is Santa Moon.My papers are from SEI.This pad has some versatile looks.
From Elegant to whimsical.
My Ho Ho Ho's and Season's Greetings are from Hero Arts.
You still have some time to enter into High Hopes Challenge.The theme is Ribbons,Lace or Twine.Just remember you MUST use a High Hopes image.

Here's a close up of Santa.....I used glitter on his hat and liquid applique on his beard.

Three Little Pumpkins

Well I think this is probably my last Halloween card.But when I saw this stamp in at Creative Accents by Whipper Snapper ...I HAD to have it.Way too cute ! ! I teamed it up with Graphicat Sketches Challenge for this month...which by the way ,you still have time to enter.I tweaked the sketch and flipped it on it's side.I just love all the layers.

I used papers from We R memory keepers and used the fab sentiment already in the pad.I couldn't believe it when I saw this little poem diddy and how it matched this stamp.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges

Peace..Love ....Joy

OK I'm starting to get into the mood to make Xmas cards.Pretty much only because I don't wanna be scrambling to be making cards at the last minute.Christmas always seems to sneak up rather quickly.So I am going to slowly but surely start on my stash.
For this card I used the good old Magnolia snowman.Always will be a fav of mine.
Nothing screams purty like some sparkle! ! I cut out some double sided chipboard stars from QK and adhered some glitter ritz.LOOOVE this ! !The border punch is from Martha Stewart,lace.

Glitter is my prozak....

Hello...Hope your weekend was good.I was able to take my girls and nephews to an event called The Pumpkin Patch.Such a fabulous idea.It had great photo ops and the kids got to pick a pumpkin.Entry was by donation and all the money went to our local literacy program.And as a added bonus the weather was perfect.

So onto Scrap Creations challenge theme this week....use Digital Image and/or Paper.
And for this week Kristen is hosting the prize of  a $10.00 GC. Commentors that leave their TOP 3 favorite DIGI companies( Their Favorite must be their #1) Next Monday Kristen will randomly pick one commentor and giveaway a $10.00 GC to their favorite Digi company. How sweet is that.??

Today my card uses The Sweet Stop sketch.They are also adding a little special theme to use PINK.I didn't use a lot but it's there. So some of my favorite Digi company is Paper Shelter which I used here.Since this week's challenge at The Paper Shelter is "ANYTHING GOES``I`m entering this card.And the sentiment is Graphicat Designs .Adding to my list of favs is Kenny K,Just Inklined and Tickled Pink Stamps.

Birthday Betty

Ok So I am soooo late posting this,although it was received on time to the recipient.LOL.Which is usually always the other way around.This was for my dear friend Cheri...well and my boss.Here's her birthday card.She liked it,thank goodness.

You always cringe making cards for friends,You want them to be perfect,but also the fact that she's in the "industry".They are the ones to notice ANY flaw so ,sweating bullets was a happening! LOL
The image is from Simply Betty Stamps.

You're Retired...

So,have you had a chance to enter into High Hopes Challenge yet.If not hop on over and check it out ! ! Last week High Hopes had a sale on some fall stamps.This fella was one.He seemed perfect for my girlfriends man who retired.Too young I'd say...lol.
He's been"farming".They live down south in the nice warm weather,so he's been planting more fruit trees to their yard .So he's kinda fruit farming to spend his time away.

I used some old but good Basic Grey papers,Papyrus.The sentiment I just printed up on the computer.Some distressing and some twine..that's about it,for a man's card.

Fall is here..

For some of you...it's definitely feeling like fall around here.This is my FAVORITE season.I love the fresh cool air.The colors in the leaves...it's just a beautiful season.Oh and hey who can forget the kids in school.LOL.Of course that tends to also bring the flu bug in the house.Which has been hitting this house quite nicely.LOL.
So anyhoo today at Scrap Creations our challenge theme is
Here's my card I made for the challenge.I used the image from our sponsor this week

Party Time at High Hopes..

Today  at High Hopes is Challenge day.The theme is "PARTY FAVOR" We would like to see you put your party hat on and make something creative as a party favor.The team has been featuring a Halloween theme for this challenge but you can go any theme.
My daughter helped me make this ...very quick and simple especially if you need to make a lot of them and your child could help.My daughter did a little coloring and added some stickles to the pencil topper.Tied some ribbon around the bag filled with candy and voila.You could go more elaborate but I think kids just tend to rip off whatever to get to the candy ! ! !

Now as a different theme I decorated this cute little pad.You kind find them at a dollar store or I found mine in the bargain bin at Micheal's quite some time ago for a $1-

The possibilities are endless for themes...let's see what you come up with!!
