Christmas Card Challenges #21 -- Ho, ho, ho

Ho, ho, ho. It's time for another challenge at Christmas Card Challenges. This week's optional challenge is to make a card with a sleigh or Santa.

I found this gorgeous paper in a pack from Bo Bunny. A sentiment from MFT was added in gold ink all on top of some red shimmer card stock.

Thanks for stopping by. Crafty hugs!

Wishing you the Sweetest Things

Another Friday is here (YEAH!) so that means there's a new challenge posted at Sister Act Card Challenge. It's always an anything goes challenge and there are often prizes to be had.  And every week, there is a winner showcased.

I was taking a look at my patterned paper the other day and decided that there was way too much. Why do there have to be so many pretty papers out there?  

Any way, I really need to get some of it used up -- so this is what I came up with. I cut the three various patterns all at the same time. I can now make 4 more cards just like this.

Supplies not listed:  Black enamel dots from Michaels

Thanks for your visit. I hope you have a great day!

An Easter Basket

I had fun playing with lots of MFT goodies on this Easter card. I thought it would be fun to add some grass to my basket and eggs.  I also really love the large rubber background stamp I used on the card front -- so much fun!

I'll be linking this up to the current challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges which is to get your egg on.  As I was looking up their site, I realized that my card is somewhat similar to Barbara's there, one of the DT members. I hadn't seen her card when I made mine but I guess great minds think alike?
I hope you are having a good Wednesday and week. Thanks so much for stopping by.

I'm Here if you Need Me

Can you stand another card with Distress Inks and a stencil?   If not, then look away.  If so, then please continue reading. :)

I love this card and am glad I will have a sympathy type card on hand for when I need one, which hopefully won't be for a long time.  I stamped my flowers in the black ink from Memento Luxe so that they would have a nice crisp impression. 

I'll be entering this into Virginia's View Stencil Challenge along with the challenge over at Think Green Recipe Swap at Catered Crop.


Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you are having a wonderful day and that life is treating you well.

Christmas Card Challenges #20 -- Kraft, red and white

This week's challenge at Christmas Card Challenges is a color one. Use kraft, red and white together. I just love this color combo and had a lot of fun working with it.

I used the gorgeous Santa from MFT's Clearly Inspired by Christmas for my focal point. Some festive patterned paper and some twine finish the card.


Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you are enjoying your day.
