Twisted Tuesday Challenge

Today's card was made for my husband for his birthday.  He loves to fish so I decided to make his card with a fishing theme.  I checked at Twisted Tuesday Challenge and noticed that the card would definitely fit in with their challenge this week.  The challenge this week was to have something that flies on it and the twist was to use 3 different embellishments.  On my card I decided to use fishing flies for the flying theme and several embellishments on the card.  The digital image is from Dearie Dolls.  She has the most wonderful free images on her blog.  I love them all.  My card design was a recessed window design which you can find on Splitcoast Stampers HERE.

Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #163

I guess it is getting to be time to work on my halloween cards.  I went to Tuesday Morning Sketches to see what their challenge is this week and thought my card would be perfect for that challenge.  I love the papers from Authentique.  I used the orange paper with writing and the spider border from that set.  I used a circular Happy Halloween Stamp which I love and I know I am going to be using that one more often.  So I have one card down and a few more to do.

Twisted Tuesday Challenge 2TC23

Today's card was made for a co-worker who lost her husband to liver cancer this week.  This card fit perfectly in to the Twisted Tuesday Challenge which was to make a sympathy card.  I used vanilla card stock and embossed it with the tulip frame from Stampin Up.  I then used a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock for the frame of the stamped image.  I stamped the image with a swirl stamp from SU.  The butterfly was stamped on more calypso coral cardstock and punched out with the SU butterfly punch.  The sentiment was from PTI.  I think the additional pearl rhinestones completed this card.

Birthday Card for Sandi


This card was made for my sister Sandi who is having a birthday today.  I was looking for inspiration in this card and I found a couple challenges that would fit this card.  The first one was Tuesday Morning Sketches with a sketch that worked perfect in this layout.  The other challenge was Twisted Tuesday Challenge which was to make a card with bright colors for someone you love.

This cute image is from Dearie Dolls.  She has the cutest images and I found this one with sisters on her blog.  Please check her images out because they have such personality.  The papers I used were from Country Garden Collection by Bo Bunny.  I also used SU Island Indigo to make the colors pop.  I colored the image with my copics and used some PTI die cuts for the flowers and the border.

Birthday Card


Today I am posting a picture of a birthday card I made for a friend who has horses.  I used one of the die cuts from Heartfelt creations.  I tried my hand with the brayer and really wish I had time to try again. But as usual, I have to put in the mail tomorrow so it will just have to do.
