Time Out: Happy Birthday


I'm back for the new challenge over at Time Out!  The challenge is a theme challenge to be retro.  My dear cousin, Sandie, sent me this fabulous stencil from Funky Fossil:  Arrowhead so it was absolutely perfect to play along. I never seem to have enough birthday cards (get ready to see a lot over the next several challenges) and I decided to ink up this stencil for a retro feeling guy's birthday card.  

As I mentioned, our sponsor is the fabulous Funky Fossil Designs.   Sarah has absolutely stunning stencils and gorgeous cards to inspire you. Be sure to take a look.

And be sure to pop on over to Time Out to play along with us and gain the change to win three incredible stencils from Funky Fossil - thank you, thank you, thank you Sarah for being so generous!  You can check out her Etsy store here.

And be sure to pop on over to our guest designer Esther for gorgeous inspiration as well!

For Unto Us a Child is Born


My cousin, Sandie, is a guest designer over at Watercooler Wednesdays, and their challenge is to make a card for Holidays Around the World. I'm trying hard to get ahead on my Christmas cards for this year and so I decided to have a play along at the challenge. And to use those Copics I just bought too. Couldn't bring myself to make more than one of these cards but am pleased with how it turned out!

Happy creating friends!  Going ahead and posting this right after I posted another card as the challenge is up soon!


Thank You Very Much


Happy Sunday friends...popping in with a very quick card to share for the current CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.   A little ink masking with Distress Oxides, add a sentiment and we're off!  Love when a card quickly comes together.

Hope your week goes well!  We're working on staying warm here...it is freezing out!  And crossing our fingers that the snow stays away so that the kids can go to their first show choir competition (the first two have been snowed out!).

Merry Christmas

The middle of the week is here....and I hope it is a great one for all of you!  I'm traveling this week for work from Tuesday through Friday and am looking forward to the weekend.  I had it my head that I wanted to make some buffalo plaid Christmas cards.  So off I went...these are being added into the stash for December. My goal this year is to work ahead on birthday and Christmas cards.  Wish me luck!

I'll be back tomorrow with a card for Time Out!

With Sympathy


Hi there...back with another card to share today!  I have no sympathy cards in my stash so I knew I needed to change that...this time of year I seem to always need them.  I was looking around for a challenge to play along and the Inkspirational challenge was the perfect one.  I did try to color those flowers in, but let's just say...that wasn't a success

Happy creating friends!
