There is a new challenge going on over at Cards in Envy.  So this means that the card should have mainly gray with splash of color.  Remember it has to be an A2 card that fits in an envelope and can be mailed with 1 stamp on the envelope.  You can't make it lumpy or bumpy since the Post Office will charge more. 
The challenge will run from now until February 1.  I hope to see you join us there.

Now I will show you what I have done for this challenge.

I was so excited when I made this card that I used a triangle punch, from StampinUp to make the diamonds and the sentiment is from SRM
  I used a splash of blue to pick up the blue in the accent in the background paper.

Hope to see you over there posting your card.

Hi Everyone,

Well, I have not posted in months, due to the fact my computer did not want to.  So, with no other choice I went out and got a new laptop with Windows 8 and this is so confusing and taking me forever to post.  I am trying but so thankful I am back to blogging.

My first post will be for Cards in Envy whose challenge started yesterday and is over on January 18,  The theme is:  Make it a Banner Year, so we just want to see a banner on your card.  Now remember that the card must be flat so you can mail it using only 1 stamp.   I hope to see you come over and play.

Here is my card I posted: 

Hope you enjoy the card and see you around blog land.

Oh Happy Day

Today I would like to share the layout I did for the Just Imagine Store using the Kreaxions punch #923.
Our subject was the men in our lives and I picked my son before his wedding.  He would not admit it, but he was nervous and relieved some of the jitters by throwing the football before getting dressed.
Here is the layout:
And here is a closer picture to show the punching and the circles.

New sketch up at My Sketch World

Just writing this post to let you know the June sketch is up at My Sketch World Blog.
I hope to see you come over and play.

Here is the sketch:
Such a fun sketch to do, I really love Lucy's sketches.
Here is my take using the subject of my first 5K

I used Jillibean Paper and card stock.  I also used Kreaxions punches to complete the layout.

Many Thanks

A friend of mine is having a Surprize Birthday Party and the ones who scrap with her are making gifts she will use after the party.  I was given the task of making the thank you cards, 25 of them.  So I know her likes are red, hearts, and banners and her favorite is chevrons.  I had to think about this awhile and this is what I came up with.
I used punch number 906 with insert A.

In the last picture you can see the chevrons on the top and bottom, it is red, the flower has a middle center of a red heart and last I even used the punch to make a banner ( just by trimming it after the dip in the chevron between the two points).  I can't wait to see her face next week.

I think I will make the gift pack for the cards like Bev showed us yesterday ( Saturday) and put half on each side.  The punches work in anyway you want them to, just takes some imagination.

Guest Designer over at Cupcards To Go

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to shout from the roof top that I am guest designer for the Month of May at Cupcards To Go  so come and check it out.
This is the kit I was lucky to work with.  It is really cute, especially the birdies.
It is called  "Devoted", go over and. Check it out.

Here are the cards I made with the kit and I still have paper left.

Like I said paper was left, so I made some gift tags.  This kit is very easy to create with.
Check out the site and hope to see you play the challenge.

May Flowers are the new challenge at Cards in Envy

May is here and we have a new challenge over at Cards in Envy.  The challenge deals with flowers, but remember they have to fit in the envelope and can't be lumpy or bumpy.  Last they must be the A2 size.  The challenge will start today until May 18th at 6PM Central Time.

Here is my example:
I used Jillibean Soup Paper and their epoxy buttons (love them because they are so flat and thin), Trendy Twine, and We 'R Memory Keepers letters.

I hope to see you come over and participate.  I know all of you have some kind of flat flowers you would love to use.

Have a great day everyone.
