A Day to Remember

Sorry, it's been awful quiet here again.  I really do have the best of intentions to get cards made and posted, but it just isn't happening.  Maybe once the snow flies (dare I say it!) I'll be spending more time here at my desk!

I actually had my card for the September SFYTT made a few weeks ago, but I never got around to getting it posted.

My parents had a wedding to attend, and my mom asked me to make them a card.  I had just got some new goodies from Verve Stamps in the mail, so they were the perfect choice!

I used the new set, Treasured Words and also the Rounded Rectangle die for the sentiment panel.  Other dies I used on this card are Leafy Sprigs, Floral Circles and the Flourished Trim die.

  Thanks for stopping by!

Challenge Complete!

With this.....I give you a completed challenge!  For the first time in what seems like forever, I have actually completed a challenge!  I adore my There She Goes stamps, and so wanted to get all the Birthday Celebration challenges completed.  Who could turn down a chance at winning $75 in TSG Stamps? (not me!)

The 5th Challenge was to create a card using at least 3 embellishments.  I used 1 ribbon and 4 brads!

After using the present from Warmest Wishes on my last card, I had to use it again.  I absolutely love how it turned out!

The sentiment is from Sentimental Birthday.

All the paper is from Echo Park Hello Summer.

Another Happy 60th!

A friend asked me to make a few cards for her, with two of them being 60th Birthday cards.  With all the celebrating happening over at There She Goes, it was perfect to join in on the fun with these cards!

The 4th Challenge was to use banners.  With all the banners out there, in paper form, or dies, this challenge was super easy!

I started by stamping the "Happy" and "60th", from Numbered Days, onto Kraft cardstock.  I then stamped the present, from Warmest Wishes, onto 2 different pieces of the designer paper, This & That by Echo Park.

The present was then cut out using the Warmest Wishes die.

The sketch is based on the Mojo Monday Sketch #258.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy 60th!

Good Morning!

I'm back with another There She Goes Challenge card.  This card is based on the TSG Inspiration Challenge.

This card didn't end up exactly as I had envisioned it, but I do still like the result!  I began by stamping the present, from Scent-sational, then colouring and cutting it out.  The numbers were stamped onto some Early Bird DP, cut out then mounted onto the white cs.

The sketch is Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #167.

I still have a few cards to get made, so stay tuned....I'll maybe get all these challenges in!

Thanks for stopping by!

For The Boys

Good Morning!

The second challenge for the There She Goes Birthday Challenges is creating a Masculine Birthday card.  This is the one I made for my brother!

I started by using the Oh Crop set, one of my favourites!  The images were all coloured with my copics, and cut out with my nestabilities.

The paper is from Cosmo Cricket.

Happy Birthday

Good Afternoon!

Did you know There She Goes Clear Stamps is celebrating 4 years in business?  Well, they are!  To celebrate they have been hosting challenges, with a chance at some fantastic prizes too!

Last week, each day was a different challenge, featuring a birthday theme.  It just happens I have a few cards that need to be made, so these challenges were the perfect starting point.

The first challenge is a Birthday Numbers Challenge.

My SIL is having a birthday soon (guess I can't hide her age!), and this is what I made for her!

I started with the Mojo Monday Sketch 257 as the layout for my card.  The numbers were stamped using the Numbered Days set, and the sentiment is from Sentimental Birthday.  The paper is from Echo Park Hello Summer.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I'll be busy getting all the cards finished for these challenges!
