Congrats, from all of us

Wow!!  That's all I can say, Wow!!!  I attended Scrapbook and Cards Today's Crop and Create last weekend. So much fun and inspiration. Was happy to meet the teachers and, actually, this was my first time attending a crop!!  Boy was that a learning experience and I hope to do more real soon!!!  I took 4 classes, two using the Project Life method and I was really surprised how much I enjoyed them. Can't wait to work on my albums. One is a Christmas theme. 

Crop and Create had a color challenge (below) and I decided to join since I needed to make this card for a co-worker anyway. Her shirt, the shopping bags and purse were paper pierced. 





Stamps: Stamping Bella's Teddybella, Amy R's Big Words & Handy Additions
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Regal Rose, copics
Paper:  MME's Stella and Rose Gertie, SU Lucky Limeade cs, kraft cs

Happy Halloween

And another Halloween card - this one is for The Less is More challenge - One Layer Witches and Wizards.  I'm also entering it in Kraftin Kimmie's Clallenge - Back in Black. Hope this one counts lol, not a lot of black other than his nose and the sentiment. We'll see :)  I'm also entering in Ribbon Carousel's Challenge - RCC 86 - Fall and Halloween and The Shabby Tea Room's challenge #188 - Fall. 


It was fun just doing the one layer and best of all super fast. And I got re-acquainted with my copics :)

Boo!

Alright....I'm on a roll!  This time Halloween.  I've had this stamp set for so long and I've put off using it because of the masking I knew I had to do but today I just jumped in and I'm thrilled!!!  I think this a CAS card.

Merry Christmas - gift card holder

Hello!!  It's October 10th and I've made my first Christmas card this year!!!  I'm ahead :). Actually I have some left over from last year so I'm not doing so bad. 



Love this card / gift card holder and I've decided to prep a bunch for a crop I'm attending in a couple weeks. This is my first crop!!!!  Excited - I've registered for a bunch of classes too, woohooo!

Here is a link to the tutorial for this card. Only thing I did different was I used a kraft card base rather than dp. I wanted it to be sturdy. I think this would be great to give a few packaged together as a gift for someone else to give and I have someone in mind for that.

I'm entering this into Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge #45.
Stamps:  Hero Arts Holiday Sayings, Amy R's Christmas Card Greetings
Paper:  Fancy Pants Tradition and My Family dp, Kraft cs
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  SU Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding ribbon, SU button, twine, 1"circle punch, Martha Stewart score board
