 fun to receive  such an amazing kit!

Hi I am so excited to tell you about this fun Christmas group Cathy and Joyce
 asked me to be in. Renee and Suzanne wanted to get a jump on Christmas cards for next year.  They thought it would be fun to make them all year and formed this group of 12. The 12 Kits of Christmas We will each host a month , and send out kits.
 We will all make something using at least 4 items from the kit, and make at least one card.
 This kit was so over the top , I made many cards and posted 4. This is such a talented
 group of card makers , I am very humbled to be included. Please stop by their blogs and see what they have made. Renee has some blog candy for those who visit each blog and leave a comment. I posted all the names and links at the bottom of this post. I made my little wreaths using a little flower punch and glued them close together I learned how to make them from KittieKraft, I used different punches , she has a wonderful blog with amazing inspiration and ideas.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

ColourQ Challenge # 121

Hello ! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Its beautiful here in Southern Calif, now that the wind has stooped a bit! I made this flower with Bloom Builder Die #1 I used the smallest die of the three. I trimmed the petals last min. to round them next time I will do it before with the corner thing. My original idea came from KittieKraft oh my gosh if you like making flowers she is the place to learn. I used a different die .  I know PTI girls showed us this too, kinda, or something like it. At Christmas time this would be a perfect poinsettia .The inside of the flower is Flower Fusion die and then just a tiny punch. Have a great weekend. Ribbon and die are the PTI new Kraft color.  I cut the die apart then glued it randomly .

ColourQ Challenge # 121


                                           ColourQChallenge #121

I was just playing around with this new background stamp I bought and this

The colored hearts are for the inside of he house die from Love Lives Here Die.
When I saw the coulur Q colors I changed one color so I could paly
Not sure what I did think I deleted the original one.

This is the challenge from PTI

The challenge is to  pick your favorite project from 2011 and share it with everyone. To take it a step further, you are challenged to create a second card that is inspired by the favorite project you select. Your new version of an old favorite could carry over the color scheme, the layout or the stamp sets.  

I always liked this one and make many for teams.
Some cards are just better the first time!
Normally I only color in the sport the card is being used for.

This is ok but I would not say better. I didn't want to change it 
up too much. All those who frequent my blog are 
probably getting tired of this one:)
Have a great day everyone!

Cas-ual Fridays Black and White

I decided I love making black and white cards. It's a clean look for me and I like a clean look!
So I will enter in this challenge again.
They are celebrating Penguin Awareness Day which lands on January 20th. As you can see I stamped my background with my favorite paisley stamp. made some sm. flowers with a 2$ punch and the rest is PTI. I have to say I love the matt with Layerz! Thank you for stopping in to see my cards.

Make It Monday #50 Shaker Card

This one has a bow

I took the bow off this one

 Hi , I hope everyone had a good weekend. I had my three granddaughters spend the night on Saturday . We had a wonderful time as I enjoy my time with the girls and they are so much fun.
The little one who is 17 mo. old woke up at 2am and would not go back to sleep until my husband was able to get her back to sleep at 4:30am . That was after I tried for over 2 hours. Ugh!! Long night! The  other girls 6 and 3 slept without waking up until the morning.
Ok I know this card is almost identical to THIS one I made last week , but it's  a shaker card. I needed to make a few more of the same card. Thought this would be a good shaker card.
Almost everything is PTI
Embossing folder is cuttlebug.
Take care!

Way To Much Fun With Garden Variety , Tremendous Treats and Seed Packet Die

I had so much fun making these Valentine treat packets and card. I have had
Garden Variety   Papertrey Ink Stamps for quite some time now.  Didn't use enough because I didn't buy the flowers, that go so will  it.  I now love this set

Just A Note!

I have some extra time today , we had company all weekend and my house is clean. I don't like to stamp unless I know it's all clean.  This is my card for  Clean and Simple Friday All you need to use are scallops.  I made some chipboard hearts again, stamped some paper with my Stampabilities Paisley , everything els is Papertrey Ink. Thanks so much for taking a peek.  Have a good day and Take care.

Hi! I thought I would give this colourQ  another try. Its fun and I did ok last time. I don't use these colors too often, but hey, its paisley and you know how I love to use that stamp of mine. I stamped on a separate piece of paper then die cut six hearts PTI, I guess I sorta made my own chipboard. Everything is Papertrey Ink but the paisley stamp is from Stampabilities.

                           Make It Monday # 49 Ghost Masking
I gave up , just entered for a chance to have a RANDOM win.
This is my MIM card for Papertrey Ink.  I tried several times but I think my velum was too thick. Also I did not really have the proper stamps and dies to do this. But I liked what Betsy did and wanted to try. I know its not done correctly , but I still wanted to post ,so it could be entered maybe for a random win :)  And I used a lot of paper to try this one. Just don't look! 

Birthday Card

Hi! Happy MLK Day!
Hope those of you with a long weekend are enjoying it. I love stamping my own background now that I have some new matching inks to go with all my PTI paper.
All paper is PTI ,Vintage Cream, Autumn Rose and Ripe Avocado.   Ink is Autumn Rose. The background paper is stamped using Stampabilities Tapestry Pattern. Matt Stack 1 and Layerz
I found this little tiny flower stamp at Hobby Lobby ( New in our town) I punched the flower then pressed them in and squished them together and put some liquid pearl in the center of some. 
 I know this looks a bit grand- ma- ish, but its for my aunt and she is even older than me :)  Thanks for stopping by !

Tonsillectomy and Adenoide Card!

Hey ,did you like that title?  One of my grandsons is having his
Tonsils and Adenoides removed tomorroy. Jackson is only 5, 
 he is a little scared.  I thought this might make him laugh, or
 it could really scare him!  He is an old sole and has a great sense 
of humor, I think it will be ok. Hope so ! 
 I cut out the tools and mounted them on the card stock. 
the tools are from Stampin Up
On the mend is from PTI
Robot is from: I don't know!  Michael's ?
Card stock is Smokey Shadow and
Ocean Tides, love this combo!

As my grandsons would say, Slug Bug.

Hi !When my grandsons see a VW bug, they say slug bug and then give a slug punch to one another.   
This is a Anniversary card for one of my sisters and her husband. I will stamp Happy Anniversary on the inside of the card.  I know this is an older stamp set and die but its new to me so I am going to use it a lot. As you can see I did not use my paisley stamp:) I bought a new background stamp. 
I am finally building up my PTI inks and it's so fun for me to use matching paper and inks. 
Everything is Papertrey Ink but the background stamp, its Stampabilities Tapestry Pattern. 
Ok, now I have to stop procrastinating and take down  the two Christmas trees, everything else is put away.
Enjoy you weekend!
