Lighthouse

Hello and happy Tuesday! Just a quick post to share a card I made today.  I made this for my Dad's birthday. He will be 85 on Wednesday. As I was making this card, I thought maybe I should be making it in blue but I really like how the different greens came out. Plus the DP is from one of favorite (yet old) lines of paper!

Black & White - Crafting When We Can #81

Hello and happy Sunday! Fall is definitely here. I have been busy, busy, busy raking leaves and I still have a ton more to go. We have been having some gorgeous weather and enjoying the outdoors. I can't believe Halloween is almost here!

It is time for another challenge over at Crafting When We Can and the theme is black and white. The sponsor for the challenge is Lacy Sunshine. With the black and white theme I could have chosen a Halloween image since it is almost Halloween but that isn't any fun! I decided to go with  Santa Spreading Joy.

Hello and happy Sunday! It is time for another challenge at Crafting When We Can and the theme of the challenge is Name It. We want to see someone's name on the front of your card. The sponsor for the challenge is The Stamping Chef. I was able to choose 1000X Thanks for today's card, thank you!

I decided to make a thank you card for my father-in-law. It probably isn't too masculine but I like how it turned out!

Thankful - #58 Creative Knockouts

Hello and happy Thursday! Autumn is definitely here. The temperatures have been quite chilly and leaves are already changing color and falling. My favorite holiday in the US will soon be here, Thanksgiving. Which brings me to this weeks challenge at Creative Knockouts - Thankful.  The sponsor is Doodle Pantry and they were kind enough to provide me with this wonderful digital image - Harvest Bounty, thank you! This is a very versatile set of images and sentiments. Perfect for this weeks challenge.

I colored the images with Copic Markers.  I fussy cut the fall harvest and adhered it with pop dots. The burlap is actually burlap paper from DCWV. I just love burlap! I used my cuttlebug to cut out the photo corner and label. The DP is old paper from my stash.

Just Charming - Creative Knockouts #56

Hello and happy Thursday! It is time for another challenge at Creative Knockouts. This weeks sponsor is Lacy Sunshine. I was able to choose an image to use for this challenge and I picked Eleanor Lil Witch, thank you! The theme for this weeks challenge is charms!

Since Halloween is quickly approaching I thought a Halloween themed card was in order. What I didn't realize is how hard it is to find a Halloween themed charm! I found a blank bezel with an ornate edge detail that I though we be perfect to make my own charm. Easy peasy, right? HA! Somehow I 'misplaced' it and I could not find it anywhere! After looking through my stash and coming to the conclusion that none of my charms would work for this challenge I remembered I had shrink plastic! Even better, I found white shrink plastic in my stash. I stamped this spider with Staz-on Black ink on the white shrink plastic and used a 1" circle punch to cut out the image and my eyelet setter to punch a hole for the twine. Viola, a really cute charm that goes with this image perfectly!

I printed the image on Cryogen white paper. I colored the image with Copic markers and used the Atyou Spica glitter pens on her hat, jewels on her glasses, buttons, and tassels.


Hurry because you only have one week to post your entries for a chance to win 3 digi's from Lacy Sunshine!
