I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas. I know we had a great time with both sides of the family. We always go to my family for Christmas eve and my hubbys side of the family on Christmas Day. I am very happy to be on Christmas break from work, however we have had sick kids the whole time.
This will probably be my last winter card for a while I am sooo ready for flower and butterfly's and hearts and so on. This image is my first Saturated Canary Image, yea!!!! I colored her with copic markers and prisma colored pencils. The DSP is a new one from SU in the sell a bration mini. Its out of a paper stack called print poetry DSP stack. Love this little stack they are perfect for cards. You get 4 sheets of each design 4 1/2 x 6 1/2. The EF I used is also from sell a bration it is called Vine Street (you can choose this or one of the free items with a $50.00 order). The flower is also from the new mini. It is actually a flower ribbon, I just cut one of and sponged it with gumball green ink.
Thanks for stopping by:)

I'm back with another card kit from Heathers Hobby Haven! I have several of her kits so you will be seeing more of these. Love the kits!
This card uses a C.C. Design stamp called Butterfly Lucy, isn't she a cutie. I water colored her with distress inks.

Sometimes you just need to make a clean and simple card. I used the sketch over at The Sweet Stop for this card and the color challenge at Dynamic Duos. Wow time got away from me I almost missed entering this in the color challenge. I have to say those little stamps from the Merry Minis stamp set and the matching Punch Pack are so much fun to play with. The colors are Sahara Sand and Cherry Cobbler. I stamped the Sentiment from the Curly Cute stamp set on the Sahara Sand CS and then embossed it with Petals-a-Plenty EF. The ribbon is the seam binding ribbon in Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler. I felt like the trees needed a little sparkle so I added so Dazzling Details to them.

Wow this was a fun card to make. Of course I enjoyed it cause I got to watercolor, he he! I used the sketch at Paper Craft Crew for this card. It was a bit of a challenge to get the cherry cobbler piece the right size and the sentiment in just the right place so that the image wouldn't cover it up, but I love the result. The DSP is from the Candlelight Christmas in the Holiday catalog. The stamp is from the bells & boughs stamp set, stamped on watercolor paper with stazon ink. I water colored with a water tank brush and my ink pads. Colors used are more mustard, cherry cobbler, and Old Olive. I added some cherry cobber dazzling details to the berries and silver sparkle dazzling details on a few spots on the bells.

Good Evening, This card is made using a kit I got from Heathers Hobby Haven. The stamp is called Chistmas Choir Girl by Whimsy Stamps. I can't believe its been so long since I've sat down and colored an image. It felt sooooo good to color. I love this image. This one is colored with copic markers, one of my favorite things to color with. I also made another card with the same image only I water colored it with distress inks, my other favorite way to color. I will show that card tomorrow.

I made this card for a good friend of mine for her birthday. colors used on this card are Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, and Very Vanilla.

The Flower is from the Field of Flowers Stamp Set Punched out with the 13/4" circle punch and layered and the Blossom Punch. The Butterfly is from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set punched out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch. The Happy Birthday is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set Die cut with the Bitty Banners Framelits.

I can't believe the weekend is over all ready! I made this card using the colors combo at Dynamic Duos which is to use Pool Party and Soft Suede. The stamp set used is French Foliage. I love the Doilies in the Delicate Doilies Sizzlits Die.

Dynamic Duos for my color choice on this card, except I used pumpkin pie instead of tangerine tango. For the focal point on this card I used the Label collection Framelits. I cut a piece with the same size as the one I used on my card and then cut it again with the one size smaller to create a mask. I then sponged with crumb cake and stamped the pumpkins from the Jack of All Trades stamp set and then removed the mask. Love the look of this. Those pearls on the bottom where white but I colored them with my Old Olive marker and then heated them up with my heat gun and immediately dipped them in clear embossing powder and then heated them up again.

Eph 3:17-19 "that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height - to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge."
Happy Sunday! This is a Pumpkin Box I designed for a gift. I found a challenge called stampin' sisters in christ challenge and this week they want us to make a box or a card with an box on it. The scripture above I copied from their website.
For the box I used the scalloped circle die and the 3 1/2" circle and the 3" circle dies. I embossed the top circle with the Vintage Wallpaper EF. For the box I cut a piece of paper 3x11 and scored at 1/2" on the 11" side and then cut slits about every 1/2 inch all the way. Glued the 3 1/2" circle to the inside of the bottom and then glued that to the scalloped circle. For the lid I cut a piece of 1 1/2" x 11 and did the same thing only I glued it to the 3" circle.

Wow I can't believe I have been gone for so long. I am trying to get back to posting more often. This is a scrapbook page I made using a kit I got from my friend France. I did change up the pages to fit the photos I had from my kids State shoot this summer. I have to say it was a lot of fun to actually make some pages with pictures on them, lol. I have so many pictures that needs scrap booked I will never be caught up, Oh well!

I love this Elegant Butterfly Punch! I stamped the butterfly's from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set in Pink Pirouette and punched them out using the Elegant Butterfly Punch and added some pearls. I sponge around the edges using soft suede ink to add a little dimension to them. On the Certainly Celery piece I die cut the bottom edge using one of the finishing touches edgelits and then embossed with the petals -a - plenty folder.
That's it for today. Thanks For stopping by. Have a great day.
