Oh, deer!




Hi, there!  

I hope you all are doing well!  We recently had lots of rain and blustery winds here for a couple days.  But, today it is blue skies and sunshine.  What a big difference a couple days make.  Anyways, it's been a little over a week since I posted.  I had a couple Christmas cards done from a crop that I went to a couple months ago.  I thought maybe it would qualify for CAS Christmas challenge(plaid), but nope...oh, deer!  I guess I don't make many CAS cards.  Since I used a new die on my card, I'm entering this card over at NBUS Challenge.  

Before I share my card with you today, I have news about my sweet dog, Sheila.  She had to have another surgery on a mammary gland.  It turned out to be Grade 1 cancer again.  It has only been since June that she had her other surgery.  We have to wrap her up like a little mummy because she shakes and shakes until she gets her dressing loose.  Monday won't come soon enough before she gets the stitches out.  But, we would do anything for our little gal, she's a trooper and brings us a lot of joy.




Ok, here is my Christmas card...



The deer die is from La La Land Crafts, which is a new company to me, but with wonderful stamps/dies!  And, the scalloped panel was made using a Mama Elephant die.  I have a few Christmas cards done and many more to go!

Thanks so much for dropping by today!  Take care and have a great weekend!  Hugs!

Hi, Friends!

Welcome to September Featured products Inspiration Day #2!  We are highlighting the Sweet Mini sets this month!  And, you can Save 10% on SWEET MINI SETS all month long in September using coupon: SweetMini!!





For my card today, I am featuring the Sweet Mini/Celebrate set!  Such a fun set with the yummy cupcakes and the sentiment with the large font!  I gold embossed the sentiment and the sprinkles on the cupcakes were colored with copics.  Plaid paper under the sentiment for color.  I added ribbon, button, and gold color shine spray for the finishing touch.  I haven't used buttons in ages, but did love the bright yellow flower to bring out more color for the card.

Dies R Us Challenge September 15, 2021(Anything Goes!)




It's the 15th and time for another Dies R Us Challenge!  The theme is Anything Goes!  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!

I have a spooky card for you today!  Usually I don't do spooky cards, but I did make one of them to share with you today.  Actually, I prefer cute Halloween cards.  And, I think the inside of the card is less spooky with a darling black cat!




For my card, I started with a purple card base and paired it with a die cut panel using Lawn Fawn Zig Zig Rectangle Stackables.  The next panel was made using water colors from Altenew.  The house, pumpkins, and bat images are from IO.  The hill was made using the pond die from Lawn Fawn.  I just turned it more vertical for a high hill.  Black embossing powder and stickles on the hill for a more spooky feel to the scene.  Dots to finish the card.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn, also.  Acrylic white paint was applied to the edges of the pumpkins for interest.  




The darling black cat and sentiment are from MFT.

Dies R Us now 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)
