So Happy

I'm so happy that I have a card I can enter into the challenges on the Simon Says Stamp Monday and Wednesday blogs and the Word Art Wednesday blog.
I made another card featuring Inkadinkado's stamps and a sentiment by Digi Shack.  Because of this sentiment its a perfect card to send to Operation Write Home.
I colored the image using Ranger Distress inks and a water brush.  Really gives the image dimension.  I popped up the image on foam dots as well as the flowers.  I added Stickles to the edge of the sentiment to match the glitter die cuts.

This card will be entered in the following challenges:

Thanks for looking,

Snow Day Card

We did not have snow, we had lots of sleet and freezing rain.  So most places are closed today.  I have extra time to create...Yah!!
I pulled out a old Stampin Up set from 2003 that I got at a thrift store of all places.  The rubber looked a bit old, but stamped just fine.
My son & his wife are trying for child number three, so hopefully I'll need this card soon.
I think the sentiment is real cute and fits the challenge on Word Art Wednesday.

Here are the challenges I planning on entering:
Hope you enjoyed your visit!

Geisha Girl

The card I'm presenting today has a Geisha girl by Inkadinkado. Its more of a bust of a girl.  Well, see
for yourself.
I created a watercolor background using Ranger Distress inks and water (duh!).  Unfortunately my sentiment is not perfectly straight....but you didn't see that, right?!

I'm really happy to be able to enter in the Simon Says Monday challenge and the Word Art Wednesday challenge.  I like these sites very much. Okay, now for the challenges. 

As always, thanks for coming by.

Happy Birthday

It must be somebody's birthday out there, and it would be truly amazing if that person was reading this!  The odds of that are probably better than winning the lottery.
Anywho, I've made a birthday card featuring Stampendous' Fluffles the Cat.  Poor Fluffles is being carried away by the balloons!
I colored the images with Ranger Distress inks and a water brush.  The icing on the cake is done with a pearl pen.
Even though I only have one word on the front of the card, I plan to enter it into the Word Art Wednesday challenge.  On the inside is the rest of the expression, "Birthday" with some more designer paper to make it pretty.
The following challenges will be seeing my card:

A Love card

Hi All.
Today I have a simple card which is, more often than not, my style.  I used an old Stampin Up stamp and old paper.  Everything I have is old since I haven't crafted for a couple of years.  Poor Hobby Lobby was probably hurt financially!!
I stamped the sentiment on water color paper, embossed with white powder and rubbed Distress Inks on it to make the word pop.  Then I used a Spellbinders die cut.  I added some glitter hearts and a wonky bow and called it done!
I'll be entering it in the following challenges:
Thanks for coming by and having a peek!

Is it Love?!

I think my card is about love and I hope you will agree.  I designed this card following a sketch on Die Cuttin Divas' blog and I plan to send it to Operation Write Home for our troops.
The image is by Inkadinkado. The sentiment is "I miss you" by Clearly Wordsworth.  You have to love someone in order to miss them, right?!  That being said, I 'm entering the card in the following challenges:

With a Friend's Help

A friend of mine, Fran, has a Cricut and one day we cut out some stencils using vinyl.  I have used one of them colored with Distress inks for my card today.
  At first I was a bit stumped as to what to do with the swirl thingee, but I played around a bit and came up with this final card.  I'm entering it in the following challenges:
