Halloween card

Don't make Halloween cards much any more - the kids are all growed up.....

This I made for the second half of October for the KCUK challange which, of course , has the halloween theme. LOL

Also this is going into the challenge for Fashionable Stamping - which has an 'anything goes' theme this month.  Check it out - you may win some rubber !!!

Now thinking - this card will head south to an Old friend I have not seen for years - but we exchange letters.  She can't make cards much anymore,, but really likes to get them !!!

Christmas Card Published

Yippee skippee.....Just got my Stampers Sampler for Oct/Nov/Dec 2014 and on page 60
I had one of my cards published.

I used, my favourite company, Stampsmith photo stamp.   Using lots of lace and ribbon to embellish the card.  The verse I cut out and covered with clear embossing powder.

The first part of October for our KCUK group is a fantasy challenge.  Well you know I can't put on here what my real fantasy is hahahahahahaaa....

So I have chosen are the two I made .

This first one I used the cut out I got from my good friend Dot.  Placed the white image onto shiney paper.  The saying in the middle is from Artful Stamper. A bit of bling in the middle too...not sure if you can see that.   Used my punch to decorate the bottom - and then all mounted onto white card stock....and a wide ribbon to finish it off.

The dandelion stamp is from Stamp It / fairy from Sheena and the saying from Invoke.
Using my distress inks for this...Plus I spritzed the dandelion with water to restamp.

Again - luvin my butterfly punch !!!

September Challenge

The challenge with my Eclectic paper artist group was to make something with the bird stickers.  I have chosen to make tags.

The tag is covered with Washi adhesive sheet....and the saying is from a set I have from Stampattack.

card for me Mom

Earlier this year we had to put our Mom into a home.  She is doing so much better there, and safer too...... Her mind is going, living way in the past - not knowing people etc.  But I spoke to her the other day....and she remembered I gave her a card the last time I visited and that she still had it.....gave me a tear in me eye !!!  So decided to make her another card for my upcoming visit.

Made a zig zag card.... the stamp used on the front is from Inkadinkadoo.  Embossed with white powder.   The flowers are all punched out and added onto the edges , put some stickles in the middle of the flowers to bling it up a bit.

On the inside I used a stamp from Tim Holtz collection.
