Enjoy the Journey


I made this card for the Muse Card Club challenge #229.  We were given an adorable card made by Tracey McNeely as our muse (see below).  My inspiration was taken from the following:
  • Blue background
  • Lower right image
  • Upper left sentiment
Here's Tracey's card:

Thanks for stopping by today; enjoy your journey!!

Heard you caught a Bug


I made this cute, little card for the challenge at Less is More; the challenge is to make a one-layer card with a vehicle.  I used stamps from 2 sets for this card: 

Taylored Expressions - Wheely Great (VW and sentiment)
Poppy Stamps - Ornamental Butterflies (flowers and butterflies)


So glad you stopped by today :)

City Crafter Challenge #375 - You Don't Bring Me Flowers


Marina is the host of this week's challenge at City Crafter and she is asking us to make a card that has "NO FLOWERS" on it.  I chose to make my card using this Louis and Bronte stamp from Mo Manning.  I love how Bronte is licking the chocolate chip cookie Lewis is eating, and there is not one flower on my card :)

Please join us this week at City Crafter!

Multi-color Flower


I made this card for Muse Card Club challenge #228. Anita Bowden made the Muse card for inspiration this week and it's such a pretty and inspiring card (see below).

I used a die from Memory Box called honeyblossom sprig and a few different Stampin' Up inks to color my card.  I cut the die from watercolor paper, sprayed the cut die with water and smooched it on an acrylic block covered with a few different colors of ink.

Here's Anita's card:

City Crafter Challenge Blog - Paint Chips Inspired


This week at City Crafter, Kirsty has challenged us to make a card using paint chips.

Paint Chips?  I have to admit, this challenge stumped me.  I tried and tried to come up with something and just couldn't get there.  I came up with the card above and decided it was the best of the bunch, so here it is :)

I'm looking forward to see what you can do with paint chips!

Please join us at City Crafter.

Today is all about YOU


I like the challenges over at the  Fusion Card Challenge because you can choose to use the sketch, or the photo, or both.  This week I chose to make my card using the sketch as inspiration.  The sentiment and die cut are by Penny Black and the rose paper is by My Favorite Things.  

So glad you stopped by today :)

Juicy Oranges....

I put this card together for this week's CAS challenge at Casology - Juicy.  When I saw the word "Juicy" I immediately thought of oranges.  There is nothing like biting into a nice, juicy piece of a sweet orange.  The stamps on this card are by Purple Onion designs.  I used Inktence pencils for the orange pieces.

Happy you stopped by today.  I just may go and have an orange now :)

Horses, Horses, Horses.....


I made this card for challenge #227 at the Muse Card Club - Anything Goes.  I used Distress Oxide inks, twisted citron and ocean spray for the background and stamps by B&J Art's stamps in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
Thanks for stopping by today :)
