Father's Day

Hello again.  One more quick one and I think I am going to head to bed.  Hopefully, I will fall asleep this time.

I have been working on Father's Day cards.  I have a couple more to do, but I thought my father-in-law would love this one.  His favorite thing to do during the summer is grilling.  So I just had to cut out this cute little grill.

I am going to use it in the following challenges:
   Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
   A Gem of a Challenge - It's a Man's World
   Cute Card Thursday - The Great Outdoors
   Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes

Chat with you later today.  Have a good one.

SU Lots of Lavendar

Hello.  How is everyone?  What a busy month it has been.  I couldn't sleep so I thought I would clean off my craft table.

This is another card using the SU Lots of Lavendar set.  So many possibilities and just so easy to use.  I just love it.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Tuesday Throwdown - Crop the Image
   Crafty Gals - Add a Flower
   Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
   MFT Challenges - Colors

Have a good night.

SU A Wild Thing

Hello.  How is everyone?  I can't believe it is the 15th of May and I haven't posted anything all month.  I do have several cards to post so I will try to get them up over the next few days.

I have one more card using the A Wild Thing set by Stampin Up.  This will be the last one for a few weeks.  I still want to play with it some more, but I am moving on.

I made this one a front and back Lion.  So when you open the card, you will see the back side of the lion.  I added a small circle on the inside of the card for the sentiment.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   CAS on Sunday - Cute
   Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes
   Craft Challenge - Anything Goes
   Aud Sentiments - Cute + Sentiment

That is it for now.  Chat with you later.  Have a great evening.

CTMH Birthday Elephant

Hello again. 

While I was cleaning my table,  I ran across this cute little elephant.  I started the card and haven't had a chance to finish it.  The elephants were colors but that was it.  I had to cut out the balloons and just put the card together.  I kept it simple.

Elephants are a favorite of mine.  Usually I color them with the C1, C3, C5 markers.  But this time I went with the W colors. 

I am using him in the following challenges:
   Craft Challenges - Anything Goes #16
   Your Scrapbook Place - Anything Goes
   Papercraft Challenges - Anything Goes #5
   Die Cutting Divas - Birthday
   Tuesday Throwdown - Anything Goes #389

Now to finish cleaning off my table.  Chat with you again soon.  Have a great evening.


Hello.  How is everyone doing tonight?  I came home from work full of energy.  And believe me that doesn't happen often.  So I got some housework done.  Now I am hoping to get some play time.

I don't like purple.  It is my least favorite color.  So I don't make cards with it often.  However, I just love the Lots of Lavendar set by Stampin Up.  When I first saw it, I wasn't sure about it.  Then I went to a SU card class and they used the set.  I fell in love with it.  You will see this set again, again and yet again.

I didn't want the whole card to be purple so I added the green ribbon/bow.  I think it makes the leaves pop a little bit.

I am using the card in the following challenges:
   Just Us Girls - Purple
   Papercraft Challenge - Birthday
   Craft Challenge - Anything Goes
   Craft Rocket - Flowers
   Crafty Calendar - Buttons and/or Bows
   Your Next Stamp - Sketch and/or Colors

Off to straighten my table and start my next project.  Chat with you soon.  Have a great evening.

A Wild Thing - Card 6

Hello.  I have been so  busy over the last few days.  Work is absolute insane.  We are getting ready for a huge inspection and we have been going non-stop to get every thing done.  Plus here at the house, I am just trying to get organized again. 

I am still playing around with this set of stamps (SU's A Wild Thing) but I am going to stop here.  You will see more later.  I just can't stop coming up with ideas. 

This is one of the first things I thought about when I saw the set.  Making a swing card.  I love it when there is a matching front and back to stamps.

I think I have gotten really good at the shading on these bears.  I used my favorite markers, my copics.  They  are perfect for shading. 

Here is the final rundown of all of the cards I have made from this set so far.
                      Card 1 - Gray Elephant
                      Card 2 - Front & Back Elephant
                      Card 3 - Front & Back Bear
                      Card 4 - Hello There Honey Bear
                      Card 5 - Lion Birthday Wishes
                      Card 6 - Swing Honey Bear - You are Here....

I am using it in the following challenges:
   As You Like It - Favorite Color Medium & Why
   Just Add Ink - Picture Inspired
   Art Impressions - Circles
   Alphabet Challenges - B is for Bears
   Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes

Well off to see what comes next.  Chat with you later.  Have a great afternoon.

Challenges & A Wild Thing Card 5

Hello.  Well, we are still getting freezing rain.  What a terrible day.  But it have gotten a few things done around here.

I wanted to work on some challenges today.  I feel like I have been missing more than I have entered.  Oh well, that is the way things go..  I will do what I can while still relaxing.

I was going to step away from the A Wild Thing set, but when I saw the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches, I thought the lion would be perfect for the circle.  Instead of another strip of paper, I added twine. 

If you are coming here from a challenge site, I am using the same stamp set and making several cards from it.  I am working with Stampin Up's A Wild Thing.  I just fell in love with this set.  This is my fifth card and I still have a few more I want to make.  Here is the run down of the other cards.  I will be adding a few more as I get them done.

                  Card 1 - Gray Elephant
                  Card 2 - Back & Front Elephant
                  Card 3 - Back & Front Bear
                  Card 4 - Hello There Honey Bear
                  Card 5 - You are Here
                  Card 6 - ?????????

I am using this card in the following challenges:
   Double D Challenges - Twine
   Tuesday Morning Sketches - Sketch #448
   Creative Knockouts - Lots of Layers
   Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes

Off to clean off my desk and see what else I can get made.  Chat with you soon.  Have a great afternoon.
