Stained Glass Window

Here is another creation I did when I got my new dies in some time ago,  they are from Poppy Stamps, and I love working with these dies.

This one, I used two way tape and glitter, and the glitter does not come off once applied, I can now rub my hand across it and NO glitter comes off, I usually hate working with glitter, but this stuff is great.

I made this card for a Demo for our local store.

Thanks for stopping by.

Local Card Swap Creation

Hi All, thought I would post my card that I created for our Local Card Swap.  I have to drop them off today, was time consuming to do, but did it all in steps and then did assembly all at once. The image I stamped is a Lilly Of The Valley stamp, they are so adorable. Colored the image with copics, and the snow flakes with a glitter pen, then did some layers with my nestabilities, and some PP.  The poinsettia was a Marianne Die, and I used this sparkle glue like substance from Martha Stewart, it is thick like paste and when it dries, it dries hard and looks like snow, I am going to try and make a Xmas card with a Tree and put this stuff on, I  think it will look wonderful.  If you have any questions, just give a shout out.
We have 12 people doing the swap, so I had to make 12 of the same cards and then we turn them in at the store, and will get 12 cards back all different , I have being doing this for 3 years now and really enjoy all the different cards I get back. Some times I keep the cards and other times I used them or donate them to Operation Write Home.  I am going to donate all my UN used cards from this year, time to clean out the closet so to speak.

Oh well, may be back to show off something else before I get rid of them.

Thanks for stopping by.

2nd Entry for Joans Challenge #41

Well, it must be a miracle, two weeks in a row I actually got two cards for the challenge done, I don't think I have ever done that, I am usually a last minute person, down to the wire. I can remember as a child, getting yelled at by my mother. I would be given a home work assignment in school, had a whole month to do the report, and there I was at the last minute, running around trying to get the information needed, the only thing we had were encyclopedia's, NO Internet. Kids now a days don't know how easy they have it!! So I guess I have not learned, I still leave stuff to the last minute!! The only difference is now I have no Mother to yell at me, just my husband!!! :)

Oh well, here is my second entry for Joan's Challenge, you can visit the challenge and Joan's site, HERE.

Again, I used scraps from my scrap bin, the last piece of the paper bag, and this stamped image is from Lillie of The Valley. The flower is Memory Box or Poppy Stamps.(Too tired to go look)  :)

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

Challenge #40 At Joans Garden

Hi All, sorry I missed last weeks challenge with Hurricane Sandy hitting our area hard, it has been a stressful week. Luckily we only lost power for
4-5 days, others in our area have lost EVERYTHING, some areas look like a  war zone, so very sad. And luckily we got our power back just as it got cold out, so we did not suffer as bad as others, and we also had a generator, after Hurricane Irene hit here last year, we learned our lesson then, we gassed our cars full the day before and stocked up on what we could, and would need, and I am so glad we did, some folks were waiting in the gas line for 4 hours just to get gas for their generators.
So for us at least the roughest is over, but others have so much to endure. Even my daughter, she works 2 jobs to make ends meet and both her jobs were closed due to no power, no work, no pay, so some how and in some form it did effect us all in this area. Saying many prayers for all those in need!!!

On to brighter notes, for this weeks challenge, maybe I will even be able to make more than 1 entry, that would be a first.

So here is my first entry For Joan's weekly challenge #40, some of if not all products I have used I got at Joan's Gardens or they can be found there, if not, just ask and Joan will do what she can to help you.
For the guideline's and prize for this weeks challenge, just check things out HERE at Joan's Gardens.

And of course we all get some of our inspiration from Selma, from Selma's Stamping Corner, and her sample card for the challenge can be found HERE.  

I have not listed what I use, but if you have a question, just ask and I will try and get right back to you.
And THANKS for stopping by.
