It's Almost Thanksgiving



Wow, I can't believe how fast time is moving! Can you believe it's almost Thanksgiving?! I'm ready for that turkey dinner that day, aren't you?!

In honor of Thanksgiving, I have a new card to show you today.  I wet with  fall colors for this cute Thanksgiving/Give Thanks card.  I've used the  freebie newsletter image, Priscilla Pilgrim, from Rick St Dennis.  If you aren't familiar with the work of Rick St Dennis, you really are missing out! He draws awesome digital images! Go check them out in his store! You will be so glad you did!

I've colored the image with Promarkers. All fall colored papers are from my stash. I've used blue card stock for my cad base and matting, to add a touch of color. I've used one of my favorite tools, my crop a dile, to punch four holes in the bottom panel, then inserted a brad in each hole and wrapped orange and white twine around each brad, before securing the brad to the card.  The Twine is threaded through a brown buttons, recycled from old clothing I threw out during a cleaning spree.  Gotta love recycling! The sentiment is by Taylored Expressions and has been hand stamped, then punched with circle punches.

Topiary Tree turned Snowman! Oh My!



HI all! Hope you're having an awesome morning!

I'm back, today, to tell you all about the new challenge going on, now, at C is For Challenge. The theme, this time is "Winter Is Coming."  Uggh I hate to even think about Winter, but unfortunately, we have no choice, at least here in the states!  It's been sooo cold and today we are supposed to get snow here in Ohio! Blah, Yucky! I hate hate hate snow! I think snow is evil! LOL!

Anyway, let me stop rambling and get back to the challenge details.  As always the challenge at C is For Challenge runs for two weeks, so that gives you plenty of time to play along! We're being sponsored, this challenge, by Scribbles Designs, too, so that means a chance for you to win an awesome prize! Want to win and feel like creating a winter project? Then come play along with us at C Is For Challenge.

For my card today, I made a sparkly winter card. This is my second project as guest designer for C Is For Challenge and I'm having so much fun joining in with thier challenges! I've used the image Snow Cap Topiary, by Scribbles Designs, colored with Promarkers. As soon as I seen this image, I immediately thought it may look cute, turned into a snowman - So that's what I did! It was fun to transform the image and I think it turned out so cute! What do you think?! I used two gems as eyes to make he topiary into a snowman. I used an orange Promarker to draw on the nose, and a fine tip black Promarker to draw his smile.  Three more gems were used to make buttons on his middle. A clearstar gelly roll pen was used to ass glitter and sparkle to the snow on each layers of the topiary tree, as well as to the ribbon around the base of the pot. All papers are from my stash. I used a handmade ribbon bow and three blue gemstones to embellish the card and add the finishing touches. The sentiment is hand stamped, with a stamp by Taylored Expressions, and punched with circle punches

I have lots of Birthdays coming up among friends and family, so I thought I'd do a birthday card for today's challenge.  (Besides, I thought you might like a break from seeing Christmas cards!) My card uses the image Bugaboo Cowboy - Fence, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. My stash just happened to have scraps of these fun denim plain and bandanna print papers, as well as these scraps of red and white gingham - So they were perfect for a western themed card!

Gimme Some Treats, Scarecrow!



Top of Altered Treat Container




Welcome to ABC Monday at Catch The Bug! If you aren't familiar with ABC Monday, you should be! LOL! ABC Stands for Anything But A Card! This is the day we inspire you by showing off a different kind of creation - Something other than a card.  There are some fabulous ABC creations, today, at Catch The Bug, so please come over and check us out - Let us Inspire You to get started on those handmade holiday gifts!

I made this cute little treat container, in fall colors.  Originally, this little glass jar came filled with paper flowers.  I saved the jar and recycled it to make this cute treat container! Cute, isn't it?! All papers used are from my stash. I've used the image Scarecrow - Pumpkin String from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with promarkers. I printed the image twice, fussy cutting the first one, to attach to the front of the jar, with foam mounting tape.  The second image, I punched with a circle punch and matted with a scalloped circle, to decorate the lid.  This makes a great gift idea and who doesn't love candy, right?!

What do you have, that you can recycle into a holiday gift this season?!

With Deepest Sympathy




Happy Sunday! It's time for another Stella Says Sketch for you to play along with at Catch The Bug! There are great prizes to be had, so you're going to want to play along with us! Come on over to Catch The Bug to check out the latest sketch, so yo can start creating, for your chance to win!

I've created a sympathy card to show you, today. My card features the image Flower Pot 1, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. I used washi tape in the top right corner.  Two blue gemstones were used to embellish beneath the punched sentiment.  I used the drippy good punch, by Martha Stewart, below the polka dot paper. All papers are from my stash.

Masculine Birthday



Whoo Hoo! Here we are, again, ready for a new challenge, starting today, at Catch The Bug! This week's theme is one of everyone's favorites - Anything Goes! How's that for a fun one?! You can create anything your little heart desires, and jump on over to play along with us for your chance to win fabulous prizes from Bugaboo Stamps! Remember, you have to be in it to win it, so hurry over to Catch The Bug and link up your creations!

Today, I have this cute masculine birthday card to show you.  For my card, I used the image Make It Snappy - Birthday Ewe, by Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. I went with shades of blue and brown, for my color scheme. I used buttons, recycled from old clothing and threaded with baker's twine, to embellish beside the image.  The center panel has sheer brown ribbon, with two handmade bows.  I've used blue pearls across the bottom.
