A Little Twine

Hi everyone,

I'm sharing a card I made for a great Sunday CAS challenge over at Outlawz this week....use baker's twine on your project. 

Come on over and play with Outlawz, they've got lots of challenges and TONS of great give aways!!!!

Here's my card for the Sunday CAS Challenge.  It's my mother's birthday card....she'll be 87 in June and she loves roses.

For this card I used Gina K Designs stamp sets, "Nana's Needlework" and Nana's Needlework Sentiments", by Nina Brackett, and my favorite CS Gina K Pure Luxury White.  Memento inks, "Rose Bud" and "Angel Pink". 

Thank you so much for stopping by.

A Rogue Redhead Designs Challenge

A very quick post - (if you're one of my blog subscribers (big hugs), you'll be getting two today....sorry to crowd your email.....I try not to). 
I'm playing along with The Rebel Challenge over at Rogue Redhead Designs called Frosty.  Use vellum on your project. 
I have loved playing with this stamp set Milliner Misses so much that I never put it away....it's always sitting on my craft table.  These ladies are always calling out to me, so in order to quiet them for awhile, I grabbed them for a really quick (10 minute card) CAS card.

The vellum piece is the window frame which I colored on the backside with a Copic marker.  I liked the streaks in it, as it looked like an old, badly painted window frame and this lady was walking by looking in the window.  Polka dots on a black background (dp is from BG "Little Black Dress" 6x6 pak) depicting snow falling on a late evening walk.

Here's my challenge card for The Rebel Challenge #7 - Frosty.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Stamp of the Week Challenge

Hi Stamp'n Friends!!! 

I'm joining my first Stamp of the Week challenge as a member of the Design Team - Rock Stars at Repeat Impressions.  I'm so thrilled to be a part of this team.

The STAMP OF THE WEEK is this Moose Snow Globe -depicting a common winter scene in many parts of Maine and other northern states. 

I was inspired by the spectacular and phenominal "Northern Lights"  (Aurora Borealis).  If you've ever seen them you know the spectrum of deep blues, greens and purples they display as they dance their majestic dance across the winter sky.  I've seen the Nothern Lights many times and I wish everyone could experience this majestic display of nature's light show.  The moose in this globe is just basking in those lights.   

The image was colored with Copic Markers, stamped on Gina K Pure Luxury white CS.  The bg paper is a very sparkly paper by American Crafts POW Glitter Paper that I bought at AC Moore.  The base is Gina K Pure Luxury Smokey Slate.

You can purchase this fabulous stamp at 50% off this week only by going to The House That Stamps Built Blog and getting the code.  Put this code in the special instruction area at Repeat Impressions. 

Enjoy the hop and the inspiration and thanks so much for stopping by.
