Squiggle Harvest

Happy Wednesday to you! While surfing my usual blog menu yesterday,
my friend Maria, at Joyful Stamper, had new images from Squigglefly. They are new digi stamps and are just plain CUTE! Since I am traveling in an RV and don't have alot of space, but still have the need to stamp....Digi stamps are perfect.
My card base is Gina K Luxury Chocolate Kiss, DSP is retired Stampin' UP! Ribbon from JoAnns, as are the leaf stickers. I colored this image with my Koh-i-nor pencils and then used OMS to blend. I am so pleased how it turned out. Check out the Squigglefly site, you will be glad you did!
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day and God Bless!

Monte's Big Hurt

Good Morning from Lamar, Colorado! We are
almost to our destination in Texas, only about 8 to 9 more hours of driving left. It has been a nice trip, but I don't get alot of stamping time......
Anyway, today's card is for my BIL Monte. He had surgery last Wednesday after falling from the 3rd step of his deck at 4:30 a.m. I'm thinking of telling him to hire an electrician to install a light out there (HE'S an electrician!! And about the most safety conscious guy I know.....) Well, if he has this lovely nurse chasing him with that big hypodermic needle, he will follow doctors orders, right! The image is one I stamped off at my sis's house the summer (thanks Patti!) It is from the Golden Oldies line, I believe. Card base is retired SU, pattern paper is DCWV. Chocolate Kiss strip is Gina K. Image is colored with Koh-i-nor Pencils and blended with OMS.
I hope Monte enjoys this card and gets better soon!
Thanks for stopping by! God Bless!

It was a color challenge, Light Pink, Hot Pink, Brown and White. (not much hot pink really have to look) I have always loved the stamp set that this image comes from. It is retired Stampin' Up! I've never used it with these colors, though!

Good Morning! Is it feeling like fall where you are? We are beginning to get a bit of briskness in the morning. My card today has fall look to it. It is for the Crazy 4 Challenge, hop on over and check them out! My sis, Patti turned me on to them. The card base is Gina K Chocolate Kiss Pure Luxury (yummy stuff!) , layered with Old Olive (SU), which is textured with a Quikutz embossing folder and my precious Cuttlebug. Golden pattern paper is from DCWV. Twill ribbon is Stampin'Up! as is the fall tree (Lovely As a Tree) I colored it with my Koh -i-nor pencils, then used Odorless Mineral Spirits (Gina K). Brads are from JoAnn's Fabric and Craft store.
I had fun with this sketch challenge, having the layout done for you is just such an inspiration!
Have yourself a great fall day! God Bless and thanks for stopping by!

Chocolate Kiss Tent Topper

Good morning all! I have been having major computer problems for the last week! Gotta love it! Oh well, things seem to be working this morning....for now ;0) !
I made this card last weekend and never got to post it, so here goes....
it is a Tent Topper card, from the tutorial that Beate Johns did over at Splitcoast Stampers last week. Run over there and check it out. She gives a new technique every Wednesday.
My card is made with Gina K's Chocolate Kiss Pure Luxury stock-she is coming out with more colors all the time and they are just delicious! Chocolate Kiss, doesn't it just want to make you reach for one? DSP is from Stampin' Up! I cut the tent topper with my Square Scalloped Nestibilities and Cuttlebug. The sentiment is from Theresa Momber's great Happy Camper Set (available thru Gina K) Ink is SU. Ribbon is Offray (don't love that stripe!) Sticker trim is from SOMEWHERE........I bought them such a long time ago that I'm not sure! :0(
Thanks for stopping by today......hoping for better computer days ahead!!! God Bless!

Mojo 103

Oh Happy Day to everyone......I'll try not to break out in song here! Well, even though I have been staring at the Mojo103 sketch and dreaming about it, I didn't have time until now to complete it. Pretty late, but not too late!
My card base is Gina K Luxury White (of course), the cardstock and Designer Series paper are all from Stampin' Up! (they have such GORGEOUS DSP) Stamped images are "Just So Hippy", designed by Melanie Muenchinger for Gina K. (she has some of the most AWESOME designers on her team!) I colored that cute hippo with my Kohn-i-noor pencils and then used Odorless Mineral Spirits to blend. Ribbon is some black grosgrain from Offray.
This was a fun card to make, the sketch is very versatile. Be sure and check out Julee's Mojo Monday posts each week. So much fun!
Thanks for stopping in....God Bless!

Congratulations Darlene and Travis

Happy Sunday to you all! I hope you are enjoying your long weekend! I am. We will be on the road again tomorrow, I 'm not sure if I
will have internet for a few days. So, I may be MIA for a bit.
Anyway, on to my card. This is a wedding card for a sweet friend of ours who is getting married this next week. I was surfing on SCS when I found Lori's card and just knew it was the one I wanted to do. You can see her card here. Be sure to check out the rest of her gallery too! There is
a link to her blog, the template for the pieces is there. She made everything so easy. Thanks for sharing, Lori!
I changed things up a bit. I didn't have the SU wedding paper that she used, so I ran some black thru my Cuttlebug, using the Argyle folder for the tuxedo. The Bridal gown is from some super sparkly glitter paper I purchased at Target. I used my SU Scalloped Edger for the bottom of the gown also. Black Brads came from JoAnn's and the Pearl at the gown waistband is Martha Stewart. Oh, I almost forgot-cardstock is Gina K Luxury, both the black and the white. Its awesome stuff!
Thanks for stopping by today! God Bless.

Sister Swap

Good morning! No I'm not swapping my sisters.....two of my sisters and myself have a little card swap between ourselves each month. We take turn building or choosing a sketch, then make cards for each other. It is such fun to see what each of us do! We all have different interpretations!
My card is the one I made to send to Patti and Terri this month. I hope you enjoy it girls! (There was no stamping involved in this one) I sure like the ones I received. It was my turn to build the sketch and I think it turned out nicely.

Recipe: Cardstock-Gina K, Stampin' Up! DSP-Stampin' Up!, DCWV, Acorn sticker-Making Memories (I think ), Brads-Making Memories, Cuttlebug, Small Scalloped Nesties. Mat Stack and Piercer (SU)

Enjoy your long weekend. God Bless!

MOJO 102

Happy Wednesday to everyone! My card today is for Julee's Mojo Monday. This is sketch 102 for her! What a great talent she is! I really enjoyed doing this sketch and I liked how the card turned out. Hope you do too!
The card base is that wonderful Gina K Luxury 120 pound! (White, this time.) Pattern paper is from a DCWV stack from way back. I used my Nestibilities to cut the small scallop circle, then a Marvy punch for the plain circle. A Paper Shapers punch did the work on the corner for me. The ink used is Danube Blue from Memento-just love their ink! I find it works best on the clear stamps. Stamped images are by Inkadinkado and the sentiment is from Theresa Momber's "Happy Camper" (GKD). Small oval pearls are Martha Stewart and ribbon is from.......who know? :0)
Thanks for stopping in today! God Bless!
