Snowmans Delight

Well, here is a Snowman card that I did for a challenge over at Cheery Lynn Designs Blog,to use what Dies you can of Cheery Lynn and to make a card anything but Square, so I used a spellbinders die to get the shape of my card, and then used a older stamp that I had of a snowman, and cut it out, colored it with copics,
Used the Italian Flourish Die, and also used parts of the Victorian Romance Flourish, and also some of the Pine Branch's set, along with Olive Branch's to make the wreath.
And that is it, oh added some bling to the wreath and the little bow to the wreath as well. If you have not used the Cheery Lynn dies yet, I highly recommend them, they are great, I love them along with my spellbinders of course!! :) Check them out, they have a lot of gorgeous dies, and ship quickly as well, in that they are better than spellbinders, :) !!!
I also used one of Martha Stewart punches for the edge at the top.
That is all for now, may be back later, who knows.
Have a great rest of the week.

Winter Scene

I know it has been a while, but with the Holidays upon us, my time is not my own, and my diseases have had a hold on me and I have had a bit of a time dealing with them, but Hopefully my mind will win over them!! Enough about my issues, on to my cards.
So first, I have created a few cards today, will post separately.
I also was very busy with getting 39 cards off to Jennifer McGuire for a Drive they have been doing for the last few years, Cards that Care, where in they collect Christmas cards to send to the seniors that don't have family in Nursing homes and such, check it out, the drive is over now, but keep it in mind for next year, I work on them through out the year for this drive. So I was busy filling in and writing in each card, so that took me some time.

My first card is one I did for a challenge at Joans Gardens, a wonderful website, check it out if you have time!! She carries great products and will order for you what you need if you want,if she does not have it in stock !! Great lady.

I did the back ground on this card with a technique I learned from Selma's blog, it makes the card look like it is snowing, check out Selma's blog for directions, (one very talented lady, does awesome work), which you can see much better on the card in person, than in the photo here, and then according to the challenge you had to have an animal in the picture, use a die, use some form of embossing (sentiment is embossed in white embossing powder), and to create a scene, so hopefully all is covered with my entry. Obviously I did the scene, and used the die to cut out the deer, (Memory box die) and another die to make the flower (Cheery Lynn die). That's all for now.
Be back shortly with another post.
Hugs for now,
and thanks for stopping by

Gift Bag

Just a quick post, not much new. Made this cute little gift bag to use for a git card.
Not sure for whom or when, so I left the label unstamped for the time being. I only adhered it with temporary adhesive so I can remove and stamp what I want when I decide.
A very easy gift bag to make, here is the blog where I got the idea from , it is "Scrap and Stamp with Frenchie" , a very enjoyable blog.
Well that is all for right now, will post a picture of the bag I made.
Thanks for stopping by.
Off to make chocolate chip cookies with my granddaughter!!! Don't you just love grand kids!!!

Gift Box

Well another week, and another challenge over at Joan's Garden's, we had to make a gift box with a ban, using Graphic 45 paper and we then had to decorate the ban, was going to use a pretty bow, but decide to make a pretty poinsettia instead using Spellbinders die, I think it came out pretty. Does not show much in the picture but I used a new spray Mr. Huey's and boy does it glisten, used it on the inked veins of the leaves, and just the veins of the leaves.
Made the little box, which will be great for giving gift cards, over here at Selma's wonderful blog, if you like go check it out.
Well off for some more creating, busy month.
See ya soon,

Getting There!!

Hi All,
Well, slowly but surely getting back to normal, trying to recoup after catching my husband's cold, so nice of him to share!! The head cold is gone, but I feel so weak and drained, everything take such an effort. This card I made over the last few days is a new method I used, well for me, I had seen it before but did not do it. If you are curious you can check it out here on Selma's web site, she is so very creative and makes such wonderful cards. She is the creative designer for Joans Gardens, whom of which I created this card for her challenge this week, here. Joan is another very creative person and has some wonderful challenges. So if you want, check them out and take a gander.
So that is the method I used to make this card, and the stipulations in Joan's challenge is what got me to create this card, I have to say, it is one of those cards that looks better in person than in the picture.
Well, off to take a well needed nap, and then maybe make antoher card. I am donating all my Christmas cards to Vera, whom sends a bunch of cards to various nursing homes for the elderly, this year she is teamed up with Jennifer McGuire, so if you care to help, cling on the blinkie on the right that says, Cards That Care! I did this last year as well, I have about 20 cards to send her so far. You can read all about on her blog.
Have a great day and Thanks for stopping by.
