Happy Birthday

A friend of mine turned 60 last week. She spent her birthday in New York visiting Jazz clubs. There sure are worse ways to celebrate… :) Here is the card I made her.

Grattis I 3

The flowers (Posy patch flowers PreCut Set) from Heartfelt Creations) are masked and colored with copics. Need to practice more on that coloring technique. But I think they turned out ok, and I’m really happy about this card.

I’m playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch #96.

I have a second card to share, a Halloween card. They are so much fun to make but we don’t celebrate Halloween. But after seeing Audrey’s Haunted House Tour, I sure wish we did!

This week’s colors over at Poppy sketches called for something spooky, so I pulled out an old favorite from The Rubber Café.

More masking on this one.

The rain is pouring. It won’t stop until late afternoon. I’m so happy we are playing golf today… NOT! :)

Have a lovely Sunday and thanks for stopping by!

Birthday card

My ex mother in law turned 82 the other day and I decided to make her a card. Spring flowers and butterflies might not be the most obvious theme for a fall birthday card – but hey, they are pretty, right! Being born late September I know everything about no strawberry cake and tulips for my birthday. :) I say no more. :)

I really like how this card turned out. Simple but the papers are absolutely wonderful. Everything is from Reprint, and this card with product information is up on the Reprint Blog today.

I used last week’s sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches, really liked that one. Too late to play, though.

I’m going to Princeton in November. Sooo looking forward to go the the US again! Never traveled beyond the city lines of New York last time, this time it’s New Jersey. It will take me some time to cover the continent… Anyway, any scrappy shopping possibilities in the Princeton area??? Give me a shout out if you have any tips!

Thank you for stopping by!!!

Miss You a Latte

Hello! Hope you all have had a great weekend. I took some time and made a couple of cards but spent even more time browsing the web and lost myself in all the amazing inspiration out there. It’s been a good day! :)

I bought a few MFT sets a while back and now I finally inked one of them up.

Miss you a latte

I’m playing with My Favorite Things Get Sketchy Challenge this week.

 

Now it’s time for an episode of Game of Thrones with my boy. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Monday!

I have a quick card to share today. I am working from home and treated myself with an hour lunch break spent by my craft table. I love my work! :)

It’s another Christmas card, I’m playing along with Jingle Belles again this week.

Believe

The challenge prompt is We Three Kings – to use at least three patterned papers. I used some fab Christmas Song papers from Riddersholm Design. The stamps and die are from Heartfelt Creations.

I used this week’s sketch from Mojo Monday. Love it! :)

And I’m entering it in Simon Says Wednesday Challenge – anything goes.

Back to work for another hour or so. Have a great new week!

Together

Happy Wednesday! I’m up on the Reprint blog today with a card made of a paper I totally adore. Love, love, love the soft text pattern and the rose buds along the edges. I knew I’d use it at once I saw retrosketches #133.

Together 2

The sentiment and butterflies are embossed with copper. Kept the design clean to let the paper and embossed stamps shine.

Here is the fab sketch:

I have a second card to share. I’ve been playing with my Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. It was a long time ago and I’ve missed them. I teamed up a few of my favorite sets and had some fun.

Hello 1

I used this great sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches:

I’m also entering the card in Creatalicious Challenge – flowers. I meant to use a lot more flowers, but the clean gene hit me. On the other side, the one flower is the center. :)

Thank you for stopping by! Have a fab day!
