Challenge Masters Color Challenge

Happy Friday everyone! We're having yet another snow day here. My girls are mad because I won't let them go sledding, one has pneumonia and the other a cold. What's a mom to do? At least they can still play with the neighbor girl, and I can work on scrappy stuff.

I wanted to share a card I made for the color group challenge over at Challenge Masters It's a great site, lots to take part in. Our colors to use for this particular challenge were fire, blush, chocolate, and vanilla. They were taken from a beautiful picture in a Pottery Barn catalog.

Supplies I used were: card stock-Bazzill, patterned paper-Imaginisce (polka dots and stripes), The sentiment sticker is from K & Company, leaf and bling -Prima, and Stickles. I also used some ink on the crinkled brown circle and the rim of the card.

Thanks for looking, off to clean the fish tank(blah!!) and hopefully make some more cards to send out. Have a great day enjoying whatever weather your having.

Page maps challenge

Hello, and happy Monday morning to you! It's sunny here today, we're supposed to get rain/snow later, so I'll enjoy the sun for now. Today I'd like to share a LO I did for Page Maps. Every month they send out fantastic sketches to play along with. This month the prize is given from Scrapdango. You can check them out here -- A very nice place with great kits. My LO is 8 1/2 x 11, which I don't normally do, but I enjoyed a change. The pics are of my daughters in my nieces wedding. The papers are from GCD Studios, ATD Story of Us.I know you can't tell, but they are pearlized-very pretty. The bird I cut out using my Slice, still loving it! The alpha stickers are foam, by Thickers--of course. The flower is Prima, journal paper is Making Memories and I used Stickles for the birds eye. I can't for the life of me remember who makes the background card stock- the black that is glossy embossed, if you know, maybe you could remind me. Well, I better run, gotta walk the dog and get to work. Thanks for looking, have a great day!

Valentine's project

One more day! The kids are itching to know what they're getting. We always do something little, this year they are each getting a book. I still need to make a card for them, I guess I better get on that! I thought I'd show a small project I did. I used 8 x 8 paper, then used the heart punch by fiskars for the border on the black. I don't know the manufacturers, it's paper I've had around for a long time. Then I used my slice to make a bunch of 1 inch hearts, which I crinkled with a pencil before attaching to the scalloped heart -also done on the slice. Lastly I added a small Prima flower and pearls. I got the inspiration from a woman named Sue, check her blog on the right-it's called of photos and paper. She is superbly talented! Mine's a little different than hers, but I'm pleased with the end results. Well, I better get going , housework needs to get done today. Thanks for looking.

Whoa! That's alot of snow!!

We've gotten 42 inches of snow in the last five days! The kids( and the dog) are having a wonderful time, as far as me and my hubby go, not as much. Lots of shoveling! But it was a beautiful site.I felt like we awoke to a land of marshmallow fluff! As you can imagine there has been no school. The girls were disappointed that it was cancelled again today, because they miss their Valentines party. Hopefully they can have it on Tuesday. I hope so too, I made treats for the teachers and bus driver. That's what the first pic is. The rest are obvious, snow!!!Thanks for looking, I'll be back with challenges I did for Page Maps and Challenge Masters.See you then!

Valentine Cards

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Do you all have plans for tonight? We have a party at our church where we all bring our lawn chairs and watch it on the big screen. First we have soup, hot dogs and grilled cheese along with a potluck of snacks. We use a canned good offering as admission to support our local food bank. We're looking forward to it.

Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I thought I'd share two cards. The first is one I made with some scraps of American Crafts paper and Bazzill. I used my Slice to cut out the heart and then put an American Crafts chipboard heart on top. Very simple, but I like the colors.

The second is just Bazzill, that was embossed with a Cuttlebug template and inked. Then I cut out hearts from the same American Crafts patterned paper as the first and made a flower. I topped it off with some bling, a ribbon stem and a Prima leaf. Well, I still have to make my praline dip for tonight, so I better get going! Thanks for looking.
