Miracle Two in a Week!! Yowzers!!

Well, I am on a roll for sure!! Two post in 1 week, a record for me, it does take me forever though, this card and box took me a whole day to do and then some fiddling on the next day. I am so slow and keep changing my mind along the way.

Anyway this card and box I made as an entry for the Challenge over at Joan's Garden , you have to create a card, use purple color some where and also some 3D type embellishments, flowers, butterflies, and it has to be a Birthday Card. And you also have to make the box to put the card in as shown here at Selma's Stamping Corner . The card took me a day, the box about a 1/2 hour and the bow about another 1/2 hour, I seem to be bow challenged, usually I use my bow maker, but this bow I am made following Becca Feeken's direction and using her peg bow maker that my husband made out of scraps of wood in the basement. Here is Becca's wonderful site, Amazing Grace, she does some fantastic work as well as Joan and Selma, all very creative women!!!

So I am entering this card at Joan's challenge this week and also the Bling Challenge over at Lilly Pad Card's.

And then of course I will post my work of creation on Hero Arts Flickr site, here, and I guess that is it. I have a list of what I used under the picture on my Flickr page. I upload all my creations to that web site.
Contact me if you have any questions!!
Thanks for looking,
Off to make a fall card for a fall card exchange on our Hero Arts Flickr group.

Fall Card

Well, long time since I have posted, I have been waiting for the cooler weather to get motivated, and it has been a long time coming, we did have a brief spell of nice weather, but the warmer HUMID weather returned with a vengeance and the A/C is back on full time!! I want the 60 degree days and mid 50's nights, I know, weird, but when one is on oxygen, you require different weather!!

So my creating has not been wide spread, but will be showing my latest creation, a simple card, using bazzil card stock, white, cutting out the leaf cutouts with the Lifestyle crafts die cuts, then stamped the surface with the HA Stamp set Real Leaves, CL457, and CL395 Leaf Prints, with various colors of distress inks, and then stamped with the HA Envelope Stamp S5507. Then distress in various places with different colors and then the edges with Vintage photo. I cut one of the small leaves out and colored and then covered with Glossy Accents and when done with all else stuck with 3D dots. On the inside of the card in the center of where I punched the leaves I put the sentiment and bling. I think that about covers it. Will also post another short description of two other projects I did for the Cove in Milltown, for the September Monthly Card Challenge and my homework for another Craft Class held once a month there.

I had also noticed the challenge for a "Bling" card over at Lilly Pad Cards Blog, so I am going to enter this there. There blinkie is on my side bar, so hop on over and check it out!! Great Blog.

Well, it is a lazy rainy Sunday, so I am going to try and spend some time in my craft room and with a good book.
Take care,
