It has been a VERY long time since I had  written on this  blog.  Life seemed to get in the way and  I simply did not have time. Now things have slowed down a  bit and  I hope to have more time to craft and participate in a few challenges along the way.

Lawn Fawn   Mice
I saw someone post a card very similar to this a few weeks ago.  I  just love the little mice blowing bubbles and playing in the field.   This  set is  from Lawn Fawn and I intend to enter this card in the Lawn Fawn challenge (Joyce’s Bubbles of Joy Inspiration! | Lawn Fawnatics).  I have so many Lawn Fawn sets I really need to use them more often.  Somehow I keep seeing other sets I want.  Winning the challenge would surely help feed my addition.

I really this this sweet image from Bug a boo stamps.  my glitter maker kinda smeared and made a  slight mess but It will be ok. Not everything must be perfect.  I followed the Stella sketch for this card. These sketches make my card making so much easier.  I also used a Valentine candy heart embossing folder I've had for along time. Tuesday Throwdown  has an Embossing  Challenge.  Crafty Creations has an Anything Goes challenge.

Cold Weather

We have certainly  had our  share of  cold wet weather.  It is so nice to snuggle in  front of the warm fire.  Today I  used the sketch from  Sketch Saturday. Their sketches make putting cards together so much easier for me. Dream Valley, Crafting From the Heart and Through the Craft Room Door all have Anything Goes Challenges ending soon.


My  picture does not do justice for this elegant snowflake.  I love the  white on white image with just the simple glitter embellishments to give it sparkle.  Addicted to CAS has a snowflake challenge.  Cupcake Inspirations has a  Something New Challenge.  My new thing is a new Cuttlebug.  I had completely worn my old one out. City Crafter and  Simon Says Wednesday both have a CAS  challenge as well.

Liam's Train

I wanted to cut this train before Christmas and  just never got around to it.  Today I decided to go ahead and do it for my Grandson, Liam.  He loves trains. He wont even care if its a Christmas Train or not.  He has a special Mailbox  that little cards and other trinkets sometimes get placed in side.  I also  noticed Fab N Funky has a For a Child Challenge. Creative Knockouts and CardsTv both have Anything goes Challenges ending soon.

Flowered Heart

Today Im  in a  Clean and Simple mode.  I'm making a few  Valentine cards to take to the local nursing home.  Just a little something to give to some of the patients who don't have a lot of visits from  family.  I used the  Poppy Stamps curved heart border and the Cheap O Dies Heart to make this.  Dies R  Us has an Anything Goes Challenge.  Both  of  these dies were recent purchases that I hadn't had a  chance to put to use.  so I am also using them for the Something New Challenge at Simon Says Monday

Warm WIshes

I can not believe it has been since August that I last posted.   The last  6 months has purely escaped and I don't know where it went.  So much  going on and no time to slow  down.  Anyway today I made this card using the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  I used a Newton's Nook image that I just think is too cute.  I picked the image before I even looked at  their current challenge but after looking at it I went with their color scheme.  Both Crafty Sentiments and Through the Craft Room Door have Anything Goes Challenges.
