Thankful For You--cQc #361--PPA320--JUG #362

September 29, 2016 


I had time to play in the "tepee" today.  I love Fall and received a new stamp from Stamping Bella.  It was perfect for three challenges.  That never happens to me.

The color palette at Colour Q made me smile!  I love Tempting Turquoise.  One of my all time favorite colors.


Dawn's fantastic sketch Pals Paper Arts was perfect to showcase Fay.



Just Us Girls Challenge is all about Fall.  Check out all these challenges for lots of inspiration!




My card is created on a white card base.  The next layers is a piece of retired paper from Stampin' Up!  The stamp set is from Stamping Bella Fay Loves Fall.  I stamped Fay on Neenah Solar White paper and stamped the image in Momento Rich Mocha ink.  I colored her with Copic Markers.  I really am happy with the results.  Linen Thread, Wink of Stella and candy dots were added to complete my card.


THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by!

HUGS!

Give Thanks For All Things--FMS256-Addicted to Stamps #213 and More-The Heart Desires #4

September 28, 2016

I have been waiting for the perfect sketch for this new stamp set.  The Freshly Made Sketches team posted a new challenge and it was just what I was looking for. 



I am also linking my card to the Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge.  They are celebrating "HOLIDAYS."  My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving!  It is a day of family, food and    
football. (for some)  LOL!  


I also found a new challenge to me The Heart Desires.  It has a variety of way to play along.  There is a sunflower in my cornucopia and the colors are all used in my coloring. 




My card is created on Crumb Cake card stock.  The top layer is from my paper stash.  I know this is a retired SU paper.  I cut it using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Party Banners. The main image is from the Stamping Bella-Casey Has A Cornucopia.  I must admit, this took a LONGGGG time to color.  I love the results, but I don't think I will be making many cards with her.  LOL!  I used Copic markers and added Wink of Stella to give her some shine.  The sentiment is stamped in Versa Fine Cocoa ink.  Enamel dots and linen thread were added to complete my card.  



Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.  

HUGS!

Sparkle and Shine--CASology-Cute #217

September 27, 2016

Hi!  I hope all of you are having a great week!  It has been 95 plus in Atlanta every day since the first week of June!  Well, today it was 85 and I was loving it!  I even ate lunch outdoors!  

Today, I am playing along with the CASology challenge.  Now, I know you are probably LOL because is it very difficult for me to make a Clean and Simple card.  The "cue" word is "CUTE" and I am always looking for a fun challenge to make cards for my adorable granddaughters.  




I looked through my stamp sets and found a stamp from Your Next Stamp-Little Darling Fairy Godmother.  I thought it would be perfect for my cards.

Miss Addison loves pink and yellow.



Miss Victoria loves purple and turquoise.



I colored the images with Copic Markers.  I added Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents on the stars.  I used the Reverse Confetti Lacy Scallop Frame Dies to cut the white frame.  The sentiment is from the stamp set and is stamped in Momento Black ink.  

I hope you enjoyed my fun Fairy Godmothers.


Thanks for stopping by!

HUGS!
