Happy Halloween!



Hi, there!

I'm back again with a couple more Halloween cards.  And, I think the one above is my favorite one!  My dog, Sheila, is in the cauldron.  Oh, boy!  What trouble did she get into now, lol!  All the dies are from Pretty Pink Posh and the dog image is from La La Land.  This card will go to one of my sisters.

For my next card, I used some wonderful design paper from LDRS.  It made for an awesome background.  I cut out the cute little witch and popped it up in the sky.  The gnome is from Sugar Pea and I stamped stars to his hat.  The pumpkin is from Paper Sweeties.  This card is going to my friend, Nancy, who loves gnomes.




Well, that's all for now.  I've been working on birthday cards lately.  We've been busy around here with different things, but we did have a great weekend celebrating two birthdays.  Our son had a birthday on the 15th and my husband's Aunt Della turned 90 last Sunday.  Such a dear sweet lady!  All her family are so kind and had a wonderful birthday party for her.  It was great seeing my SIL, April, and her husband, Ron, who came up from Tennessee, so fun!

Thanks so much for dropping by today!  Take care and have an awesome weekend, hugs!

Happy Halloween!




Hi, Friends!

It's a cooler day here in NW Ohio.  But, the sun is shining which helps a lot!  I do love fall and it will be here before you know it!

I saw some new goodies from Pretty Pink Posh for Halloween, so I'd like to share with you a card I made.  I'm entering this card over at NBUS Challenge.



The cob web and images are from Pretty Pink Posh.  The first image I did alter just a bit to make it look like my dog, Sheila.  The black cat looks somewhat like my cat, Nicky, but without the white paws.  I forgot to give him white paws.  And, the bunny in the middle because Sheila loves to chase after the rabbits.  The cute rabbits are fun to watch in the yard, but not when they eat my hosta plants, silly wabbits!  All images were colored with copics and the background was made using distress inks.  Enamel dots to finish the card.

I have a couple more Halloween cards made, but I'll share those later.  Thanks so much for dropping by today!  Take care, hugs!!

Dies R Us Challenge September 1, 2022!(Anything Goes)


Hi, Friends!

For the challenge this month the theme is Anything Goes!  It is the 200th Challenge!!!

We ask that you use at least one die on your project for the challenge that Dies R Us sells!  Please come and join the fun and have a chance to win a gift certificate at the Dies R Us Challenge!

Also, this will be the final Dies R Us Challenge.  It is with great sadness to say that it is my last post for this design team.  All of us on on the design team will miss it!  It has been a very supportive and fun design team to be on.  I have been on a design team for nearly ten years with Paper Sweeties and Dies R Us Challenge.  It has been a big part of my life.  But, as you know there are always cards to make and I will be continuing to design them for my family and friends!  A big thank you to Anne, our team leader, Darlene, our previous leader, and to all my team members for their support!!  And, a big thank you to you, my blog friends!!




For my card, I started with a rust colored card base and paired it with a distress inked background for the sky.  The images are from Lawn Fawn and were colored with copics.  The sentiment was embossed with black embossing powder.  I love this set for a fall scene!

I'd like to share with you a couple sunflower photos that we took when we visited a sunflower farm last month.  





The farm had 70 acres of sunflowers.  They harvested them and sent them to Georgia 
to make sunflower oil.  We're already looking forward to visiting the farm again next year!


The links for the dies are listed below...

Dies R Us has a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts



It will ship to both the US and Canada.  Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different.  Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!



My teammates have some fabulous inspiration for you today.  Sit back, relax, and take a look.... (you can click on their name to go to their personal blogs and get more detailed information about each project)

Dies R Us Challenge August 15, 2022!(Summer)


Hi, Friends!

For the second challenge of the month, the theme continues as Summer!  We ask that you use at least one die on your project for the challenge that Dies R Us sells!  Please come and join the fun and have a chance to win a gift certificate at the Dies R Us Challenge!  



I have another summer card for DRU this month, but with a darling flamingo pair from Lawn Fawn.  The frame and trees were die cut using  dies from Lawn Fawn, also.  The tropical leaves are from Cheery Lynn Designs.

For my card, I started with a white card base and added the frame.  The background sky was made using several distress inks of kitsch flamingo, wilted violet, spiced marmalade, mustard, and broken china.  The images were colored with copics.  White gel ink and hand drawn birds for interest.
