Happy Halloween!

I just wanted to say Happy Halloween to all of you.
I really enjoy this time of year. The changing leaves and crisp air.
I love seeing all the trick or treaters. But we have such a long driveway, they don't want to come down.
We have the best candy kids.... here are a bunch of Halloween cards to keep you in the mood.

I hope you have a Safe and Happy Halloween!
Thanks for visiting

Happy hello to all.

Mine was ok, long day at work. But i have made a cute test card at work today.

Today's tip: Using a corner rounder make a card not in a usual shape. Example: above card.
I used a corner rounder to round all corners. i also used it to do the layers on my snowman.

Happy Hello to you!

Hello all. Thanks for hanging around.

I have been trying to get my muse back. I have been reading alot of magazines and getting some ideas.

I just got a email today. I won The Simply Charmed Cart from My Pink Stampers live contest!
I love her blog and am thrilled that i won. I can't wait to use it.

I wanted to show the two cards i have done. I have others but i am going to submit them for the magazines.

Since Halloween is this weekend. i wanted to show you all this adorable card i made with stamps from Penny Black. I also used K and Company paper-halloween. I just didn't color the cat in. Couldn't decide on a color for him.  I wanted to get another card ready for submitting to the magazine. I have gotten two published so far.

I am getting a jump on making winter/x-mas cards. Trying new layouts. This bear is so great for mens cards. i had to pair it up with christmas paper to get the pilots x-mas feel. I still have to take my time to color properly. all paper by dcwv. Love DCWV paper.

Thanks for viewing.

Tip Tuesday.

I decided that i will make Tuesday on my blog as A Tip that i learned that i will send along to you.

Today's Tip:

I learned this From My Creative Time: When stamping peachy keen stamp faces, make sure you color in the eyes with a white gel pen. It makes them stand out.  I loved how these pumpkins turned out. I even cut them out by hand.

I also love doing faux stitching. I can't sew at all. I maybe mend a sock but that's it.
I have done a male card with faux stitching.
I decided to not do a Throwback Thursday challenge. I can't give it the time it takes right this minute. Next one defiantly.
Thanks for checking out the blog today

Happy Sunday!

Sorry i haven't posted much this week. I haven't had much of a muse this week.
I am planning my Throwback Thursday project, and thinking about my Send Love today package.
I hoping to get them done early this week. I have to have the Throwback project done before Weds.
I did this for the challenge at splitcoast. I love using DCWV paper. I used stickers and rub-ons too.
I also love My Pink Stamper stamp sets. They are the highest quality you can find.(this from a final inspector-high praise). I need to get more. Hopefull everyone is happy and healthy.

Thanks for looking

SC302 and My pink stamper challenge

Well i have been a bust little cardmaker today at work. Mostly i do cards on my break and lunch period so i can relieve stress. Plus my co-workers like to see what i come up with.
I did this for Splitcoast Stampers scetch challenge 302. I used paper by the paper company, basic grey and georgia pacific. I love fluffles. and this stamp is great for birthdays. Colored with copics. I also used a cuttlebug folder to emboss the strip. i even handtied a bow.

This is for the challenge 302 and My pink stamper challenge to make something cute. Paper used: paper company, and georgia pacific. Fluffles again, colored with copics.  wanted to so the birthday hat as a embellishment. I think this is cute birthday card.
So what do you think?

Happy Columbus Day!

Well, its been another Columbus day here and gone. I did have to work. (it keeps me in my hobbies). :)

I have done a couple of more cards at work.

This card i did for the CAS88 Challenge on splitcoast stampers. I used recollections paper, Stampendous stamps(short stacks), and Memento ink. The challenge was to do a crinkle. I don't have the super gadget to crinkle my paper, so i had to do it by hand. The images were colored with prismacolor pencils.I like distressing edges.

This is a quick and simple card with no stamping. I used  bazzill paper for the base. the ladybug paper is by Heidi Grace. the epoxy sticker is also by Heidi grace. Can't you tell i hand did the bow.(i really have to work on that.)

I am still trying my hand at this blog, so it will be learning as i go.

Take care my friends
