First snow of the season!!

I thought you might enjoy seeing our dusting of snow!! This moring we woke up to a nice little snow fall. I am not sure I am ready for this but oh well!! It is cold and wintery today and I think I may just make myself another cup of coffee!!


This card is a combination of SCS Color Challenge to use Kraft, Basic Black and Real Red, and the Mojo sketch challenge . In my opinion this is a great combo for those hard to make male cards. So I took advantage of the challenge and mad a B-day card to add to my stash--with 3 brother-in-laws and 19 nephews I am always needing male cards.

I used my slit punch to make the scalloped boarder. I am one of those who does not have the border punch yet--it is on my wish list!! I don't think you can see it in the picture very good but I added a piercing in each loop of the scallop. The wheel was cut out and attached with a brad. all the edges were sponges to give it an aged look. As I assembled the card, I added a ribbon to finish it off!!

Thanks for look!! Ahoy Mates~have a great day!

This card was so much fun to make!! It is a combination to 2 challenges found on SCS. Friday's challenge was to use only acrylic stamps--luckily for me I have a few from Verve. Saturday's challenge was an inspiration piece that I loved--felt scarfs. I ecided that my Flower Fusion flowers from Stampin Up were a must!! How could you not look at those beautiful scrafs and not immediately reach for these felt flowers. I layered them on top of pieces from the Roof Garden die cut set from Stampin Up, and help them in place with Rhinestone square brads. My main panel is layered on Kiwi Kiss and then attached to a CBed piece of Chocolate Chip. To give the card some depth I attached it to the base card with 3D glue dots. The finial addition to this card was the ribbon and sentiment. The sentiment was stamped in Choc. Chip and layered with Kiwi Kiss.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope your enjoyed this card!! Have a great weekend!! Today I am going to go scapbook with some friends--Maybe I will have some pictures for you tomorrow!

I must say that I have not been very consistant with writing on my blog!! I do have an excuse, but doesn't everyone. I opened by blog and made a few entries when our Internet Safety software started blocking all blogs! My DH worked on it over the last few weeks and finally we just had to remove it so that I could get back on.

Here is my newest card, created for the Color Throwdown found here: I love this combination!! And I think it goes so perfectly with this Bronco Buster stamp set from Stampin Up!

I used my paisley Cuttle Bug folder to emboss the Bordering Blue Background, Layered all the panels in Bravo Burgandy, Used nessties to cut out my main image panel, sponged around the edges and paper pierced the scalloped edge. To add some dimension I added linen thread for a rope and a Star brad to the empty corner. I hope you like it!!
