Merry & Bright

Happy Saturday friends. Today is a bittersweet day for me as my daughter that I was reunited with earlier this year came out to Colorado for a surprise visit. It's the first time I've seen her since our reunion weekend. Any way, she left last night and I'm sad but I was so thrilled and happy to see her. What a treat for myself and my family.

Okay, onto today's card. It's for the current challenge at showCAS your style where there is a great inspiration photo this week. The DT will be using stamps from the Clearly Whimsy Stamps line but you are not required to use those to play along. However, if you do, the prize jumps up in value.

I used the super fun Sparkle & Shine stamp set. This set has a lot of great snowflakes but it also has a great string of lights with individual bulbs that you can stamp. 

Thanks so much for visiting. I hope you have a wonderful day. Hugs!

Bless You for all That you Do

First off, happy Thanksgiving to my US friends. I hope that you have a wonderful day. And for everyone else, I also wish you a fabulous day.

My card today is super CAS in design even though it might look a bit busier than a traditional CAS card. I used the gorgeous Floral Fusion Cover-up die from MFT for the focal point of my card. 

I am envisioning making this card in multiple colors and giving as a gift. As always, I truly appreciate you stopping by and leaving any comments.

Welcome Baby

Happy Tuesday friends. Before I get to today's card, I wanted to say thank you for all the sweet comments on my last post. I'm so pleased that so many of you liked my card. To tell you the truth I really liked it too.

I was asked by the women's organization in our church to make some baby cards to give to new mothers. I made 8 of this card and then 8 of a boy version which I neglected to take a picture of.

I decided to use the Sunray die-namics from MFT because I was asked to put the text "Teach me to walk in the light" somewhere on the card. I thought this tied it all in a bit.  I printed the verse on my printer and added it to the inside of the card.

Thanks so much for visiting me today. Crafty hugs!

Good tidings to you and Yours

Hi friends. I've got another Christmas card for you today. Let me tell you a bit about how I put my card together. 

First, I applied some embossing paste onto my card front using a fun stencil. After that was dry, I then sponged some Seedless Preserves Distress Ink onto my card front. After that, I went in with Chipped Sapphire around the edges to darken them up a bit. Don't you just love these two inks together?  I know I do and I am anxious to play around some more using them.

I then added my hills, one of them stamped with the sentiment. My silhouette image was then die cut and added. Everything was mounted onto my card base. The star in the upper right corner was a last minute addition as I thought the sky needed just a bit of something.

Thanks so much for your visit.

Penguin Fun for Clearly Whimsy Stamps

TGIF! And it's my last day of work before vacation so a double TGIF. Before we get down to business today, I'm happy to have Sharyn Polesel  from My Crafty Place as my newest follower. Sharyn has some gorgeous cards on her blog.

It's time for a new anything goes card challenge at Sister Act Card Challenge. There's a great sponsor this week. Click here to link up your cards.

My card today features the super adorable Penguin Fun stamp set and matching dies from Clearly Whimsy Stamps. I also used the Stitched Border Trio die set to make my hills.  I just love these adorable penguins.

For my sky panel, I used a stencil and some embossing paste. I then gave some of the snow a bit of clear Wink of Stella. The penguin's body also got some Wink of Stella.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a most wonderful day. Hugs!
