I made some cards for Special people this year.  The first one reminds me of a winter storm and the other was made with non tradional Christmas colors.  I also have a friend that is expecting her first baby and that one is for him. She knows that she is having a boy.

Today I entered a challenge for Stamp TV that required us to use at least 10 layers. Yes, I did say 10. That was going to be one thick card, I thought. But, It was easier than I thought and relaxing after abusy day yesterday. We had a wonderful family Thanksgiving here at home. Evone was there, except my son and daughter-in-law who have moved too far away to join us. Missing them, but so much to be thankful for. Here is the card that I completed.
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and didn't shop till you dropped today.

I wanted to show you that you can never make a mistake when it comes to stamping. In these two cards, I wanted to use the stamp as the images on the backround as well as the focal image.
When I was stamping the backround on the first card, the stamp did not come out bright enought. I didn't want to restamp it as I would not be able to restamp them perfectly over the orginal mark. To remidy that, I used black to stamp over the light areas and them left the focal image in black instead of coloring it. You can see what I mean in the pictures.

I made several boxes of cards with various sentiments for my grandkids to give to their teachers this Christmas. They were fun and easy to do with the directions from Gina K. They are on her site, if you care to make them. I placed them in a clear box and tied with a red ribbon to make them look festive,.

I have not been a very good blogger as I have not posted since October.  But today I have two cards that I completed and they were simple to make.  One is a Christmas card and the other is a Thank You card.  If you look on the challenge for this week on Stamp TV under CASE the DT, you will find the instructions for them.

Last weekend was a girls weekend in Door County. I have wonderful friends that it is fun to spend relaxing time with twice a year. The weather was great and the colors were early this year and at their peak. So much fun, shopping, talking and just relaxing. Looking forward to the next time. So, since I have been back at home, I have spend a lot of time entering StampTV challenges and one for Paper Planet. Here are some of the cards that I made for them.
Hope you have a nice day!

Fall is certainly here in Wisconsin. Our days are sunny, but nights are quite cold. Still hoping for a few more warmer days. I can't believe that I haven't posted anything for more than three weeks. I have been busy with grandkids and entering Stamp TV challenges. Here is the one that I entered for the last one.

I am adding a couple of cards that I made today. I just was not happy with the birthday card for our friend, so I made a new one. This one is much better and I am happy with it. See what you think.
The next one I tried making this door using the nesties long rectangular die. It worked out pretty well and inspired a fall theme.
Have a nice day!

Yesterday, I made 3 cards. One for a friend that will be celebrating his 65th Birthday. We are invited to have dinner with his family and I wanted to make a card for the occasion. Here it is.
The next card is clean and simple.
And the last one turned out much different than planned. I added more to it than I usually do. I am really liking the look and want to put more on the front and inside.
Have a nice day!

On my way!

A few days ago, I made a photo box.  Unfortunately, the pictures turned out rather yellow.  You can see the first picture that I added.  So I got new lights and new white bulbs and that did the trick.  The I took quite a few pictures of the cards that I have on hand and will post them.  Here goes.
