I made this card for two sisters that I work with. They had some  sadness and death  in their family.  I was asked to make a card for them and this is what I came up with. I thought the colors are soothing and the the patterns are pretty.  I also received  my shimmer paints and just  had to use them ( you can not tell). The image and the large darker blue paper under the tree, are are all shimmery! So very pretty. 
  If you have not seen the shimmer paints from Stampin up.  They are so very cool! What I did was put them in a mister bottle and added some 70% rubbing alcohol.  When you mist it on a card and the alcohol dries you get a beautiful shimmer effect. LOVE IT!!!

I know I have been missing for a few days, I will have some pictures why, It is not me it's my craft room.  It was  such a  total mess that I had absolutely  no creative juices flowing!  This last weekend I did some buying at IKEA and some organizing of my craft room.  I have a few more things to work out and then I will post it all for you.

This is the new Technique for Monday over  at SCS. This one is so much fun.   I wanted to try it right away, here is the link to it. The image is from High hopes and it has been sitting on my desk just waiting for a card background to be mounted on when I saw the retiform technique I knew 
I had found the background I wanted to use. Now I keep thinking of all the diffrent post it note sizes I could use with this technique!

Winter snowflakes.

The colors are very unusual for me, I am very much a traditional Christmas card color person! Greens and reds. Never pink blue and gray! I had to give it a try. This was for the featured stamper on SCS, Riley AKA  Dancerrile.

This is going to be a short post for me, still not 100% I have had a ear infection and not feeling the best this past week. Not the nicest  person to be around this weekend! Yikes!!  Sorry to my family. Looking forward to feeling better.

Winter Sparkle.

Happy Monday to you!

This is my card for the featured stamper over at SCS.  It is the Sunday challenge.  Chris AKA:  glowbug,   is the stamper and her gallery is great!  This is the card that caught my eye.  I loved all the sparkle that was represented in the winter scene.  The colors are perfect also for the winter scene. Thanks for stopping by today

I hope I make it in time for the challenge, my camera was charging and I could not take the picture yesterday after I finished the card and I for got all about it until late today. Ops!!!  for the panels I used the faux linen technique .

Swimming with the fishes! High Hope # 47

I am a big High Hopes fan! I think their stamps are fun and whimsical! Very fun to color with my copic markers, which make me feel like an artist! This weeks challenge was to have layers, well I think this card has enough layers and a very cool fun background technique that was a challenge over at SCS this past summer. The SCS challenge was to use rubber bands and emboss with them than brayer over the clear embossing. It reminded me of the ocean and the light coming through the water. There is lots of glitter on the mermaid, as there should be! The little turtle dude has glitter too!
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

Happy Anniversary

Yesterday my DH and I celebrated our  13th wedding anniversary.  This is the card I made for him.  He brought me roses and we went out to dinner to one of our favorite spots.  We could not  stay out too late like we use to when we were dating and a few years younger!
I  used this stamp earlier this month on another card, went and showed him the card I made and forgot I wanted to use this stamp for our anniversary. I had to make a whole different card for ours! Silly Me!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Birthday card for Mothermark!

yesterday over at SCS I found a cute card and noticed that teapot was in the title, so I just had to follow it and found the group that is continuing the teapot challenges for  Cindy while she is taking a personal break.
I started the teapot challenges late this summer and they were so much fun!  Cindy is such a hoot and the stories she comes up with for her tea pot challenges are laugh out loud funny! Over on the thread I read that her birthday is in October. So.......Happy Birthday Cindy!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Mellow whites

 I got to stamp today, I have been so busy and tired I just have not made it down to my happy place. Over at SCS the color challenge is to use Kraft, moss and white. I love the look of the white on kraft paper, it looks so pretty together.
I also like the technique I learned from Emma F,  with the background.
All you do is ink up the background stamp and lay the paper on it and just touch it with three fingers.  I love how it looks and then you can stamp things in between the background.
   Now time to change hats, off to take my daughter to soccer practice !
Thanks for stopping by.
