The Card Concept #101 Rustic Fall

A rustic fall card for The Card Concept


I was inspired by the fall colors using The Ton Fresh Cut Dahlias and PTI's Autumn Pumpkins in CP inks.
Clean and Simple, but sorry I added the Nuvo drops.  Think I got carried away.



Thanks for stopping by.




Color Throwdown #517 & Birthday Card for Avery

Here is a card for this week's CTD using the colors below

I made a really easy card using Pretty Pink Posh Cherry Blossoms as a background and PTI's Banner Style and Keep It Simple Birthday for the sentiment


This is a card I made for my Granddaughter Avery who will be 13 on November 3rd.  She is quite excited to finally be a teen.  I remember those days, (sort of). Haha!
I used this cute little Santoro Holly that I got from my lovely friend Birgit at our retreat last March and colored her with Prisma colored pencils.
The die is PTI's Pierced Feature Frames - Oval

Thanks for stopping by.

I started my card this morning, my only day of crafting, but was interrupted to go watch my dad from 1-3, so it is hard to continue with any mojo.

And tomorrow I get to go help with those babies who are now 6 months old and are talking, smiling and laughing.   In addition to that, they are on the verge of rolling over.  They are getting so fun.  They were out of town last week so it's been over a week since I have seen them.  Can't wait.



Thanks for stopping by.

Just Us Girls #464 Photo Week


This is my last week as Guest Designer for JUGS.
I want to thank all of you fabulous ladies for asking me to be your GD this month.  It has been so much fun and such an honor.
Thanks again....

This week it is Photo Week
I always take photos so literally and really struggled with this card.  In fact, we had this photo on one of our MM challenges and I think I struggled then too.  
So then, I just decided to just go for the obvious, red and white.
I used a stamp set that came with my Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.  SC Design, Scandi Christmas
After I made my first card and wasn't too happy with it, this came in the mail and immediately I thought this would work for this week's card.
The sentiment is from Neat & Tangled, Merry and Bright.

Thanks for stopping by.

Muse #287 with Kim

I was inspired by the card made by Kim for the Muse
this week.
Well the babies come back tonight, so it will be back to going to help Ramie.  I really missed them, but enjoyed my time in my craft room. Lol

Kim's card
I was inspired by the sentiment being the focal point and the flowers around.  I was going to make this a Christmas card using these colors but they looked more Fallish to me.  So I will give this to my Aunt who will be 83 next week.
Used PTI's Spruce & Spriggs, Inside & Out Birthday in CP inks

Thanks for stopping by.




PTI's Create Along With Us - October 2018

My card for this month's Create Along With Us
My inspiration came from the card below by Michelle
I used a window die that I have.  I sponged Aqua Mist on the background and then used MFT's Snowfall stencil with some embossing paste. 
PTI's Deck the Halls and Cutaway Tags Winter, Aqua Mist Bitty Dots
and my new snowflake background given to me by my friend Loll.
