Welcome to my little corner of the vast God planned domain. I plan to share mostly my card projects here, you might even possible see some scrapping, quilt projects, and photography. Who knows I may even try other craft projects. Might even share a selection of little recipe cards I have collected over the past few years - scrapped, of course. There may even be some little things of greatness of my daily life. Every now and then, I might even vent!

Sale A Bration sneak

This card is made from the Big Day Sale-A-Bration set I just received a couple of days ago. I needed a swap card for a child's birthday in my swap group; therefore I made this card. Also wanted to use the last sketch of 2014 from SCS and the color challenge from CCMC. I was not so sure about the colors but liked it once I made the card. Liked the sketch as it was very simple and whipped 4 cards out in 15 minutes.

Stamps: Big Day (Sale-A-Bration 2015)
Ink: Basic Black
Paper: Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Real Red and Whisper White
Accessories: Arrows Embossing Folder, retired Label Punch.

Thanks for looking and leaving any comments or questions. They are all appreciated greatly.

Happy New Year

I spent Jan 1&2 making a few new cards. Need to get a few completed before I go back to work on the 5th. Oh my break is almost over. 

The first card was from SFF010215 and PPA234. SFF was a sketch challenge posted 1/2/15 and 
PPA was a color challenge posted 1/1/15.  I am a little disappointed in the way the colors turned out on my card. The "Best Wishes" is stamped in Wisteria Wonder but it looks gray. I layers the 3 colors of ribbon to accent and add some pop.

Stamp: Best Year Ever
Ink: Wisteria Wonder
Paper: Night of Navy, Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White & Shimmery Silver, scrap of Flirtatious DSP
Accessories: Night of Navy seam binding ribbon, Wisteria Wonder ruffled ribbon and Silver ribbon, a fishers border punch, 1 3/4 x 7/8 oval and scalloped oval punch, dimensionals, Wisteria Wonder marker

This above cards is a sketch from OWH245. I absolutely love their sketches and an going to try to make another box of cards for them again in 2015. Hopefully they will get in the mail in the next 4-5 months.

Paper: Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White & Best Year Ever DSP (new 2015)

Need to get back to bloggin'

I have been so busy making all of my Christmas gift sets of cards and almost 200 Christmas cards. I know I have not posted any because I do not want everyone to know what they look like before they get them. Once they are all in the mail I will get to posting again. Besides making tons of cards, I am currently sick with a terrible cold and do not really feel like doing much lately, but for some reason I cannot sleep tonight. Oh maybe it is because I have slept most of the last two days.

We had a great Thanksgiving with my daughter and her husband, father-inlaw, and their niece and nephew. Went to a football game last Sat and that team got to play tonight for the state championship. Way to go Bothell HS.  Praying I can go back to work on Monday as I am now going to be behind missing a complete day of work.

Promise to show my Christmas cards after they are sent. Sure you have seen then somewhere else tho because I did  case most of them.

Thanks to everyone on Splitcoast Stamper for the multitude of ideas and suggestions. Well since it is almost 1 am I think I am going to shut down and try to go to bed.

A Little Kindness

After being gone for a week of camping I am home and ready to play. Also will be going to back to school orientation later this week and then back for the year next Monday. Play time will be cut back a little then. During the week at camp I developed a very sore groin and the pain ran down my leg and into my kneecap. Not sure what is going on there, hope it is not a blood clot but I do go to the Dr. this pm. 

This is for the Color Challenge CC491 today and MOJO354 inspired by stampinChristy. I did change the Bermuda Bay to Tempting Turquoise to go with the DSP I used for the card. Thanks Christy. I really like the layout and wanted to used this new stampset for this week's challenge. I did layer my two printed pieces and added ink around the circle to make it stand out just a little more. Added a little Old Olive for the leaf and cut the ends of my ribbon with some pinking shears.
