Fall Treat Boxes

I absolutely love these fall  treat  boxes!  My favorites are the  scarecrows but he  pilgrims  are  sweet too!  I will be using them for the Scrap Chick  harvest Link Party.  I usually have  25 or  30 for Thanksgiving  Dinner.  I  think I will place a  treat box at each place  setting for my guests.      I will  also use it for the  Incy Wincy's Give  Thanks challenge as well.

Birthday Cake Mouse

My  Best friends grand-daughter has a birthday this week.  There are several blog's also  celebrating  birthday's.  I love Meljen Design's Birthdaycake mouse so for  their   number challenge I  added  a birthday number candle.  I will also be using it  for  the  silhouette online  challenge and the Crafty catz challenge

Cocoa Penguin

My sister  found another new  site for digi stamps.  We loved this darling little  penguin immediately. So I made this card for the challenge at Imagine that and  I will also be using it for Sketch Saturday's drawing as well.

Fall Leaves

Im new to the Incy Wincy site but love some of their designs.  Fall is in the air here so I made this card with fall leaves for their challenge. 

Ship in Porthole

For  Digi darla's Copycat  challenge I decided to put this  fine looking ship in a porthole with a few  nautical stripes and a  map.  It will make a great masculine card for one of my beach friends.

Claudia Loves Christmas

Little Miss Muffett's challenge this month is  Christmas.  I simply love  Claudia!   I don't have a lot of  my Christmas stamping things out yet but I used what I could get my hands on right now.

Card with Tag

For the Eureka Stamps Tag Challenge  I tried to come up with a  fall design but  it just  wasn't working for me. So I drug out a few Christmas things and this is what happened.  I think it will work nicely for the challenge.

Thursday, September 26, 2013


Instead of using the words in the silhouette online store I decided to  build my own with their  letter  boxes.  Then  I decorated them with fall  colored papers.  I'm going to display them on my mantle for the fall.

Candy Corn Jar

For the Cardztv  jars, jams and jellies challenge I chose this jar shaped card and added candy corn to it.  I used acetate to  give it that real look.  Since it also has words from the  Silhouette online store I will use it in the weekly challenge there as well.

Acorn Mouse

Fall is  finally  here and I'm ready to  start all my fall cards  so I chose this darling little mouse from Meljen Designs for their take 5 Challenge.  I also recently tried a  new set of markers from Spectrum and I  really like the various shades that  work together in a  set.  I can see it will effect my  coloring style.  I'm also  going to be using it for the  Tuesday Throw down Clean and Simple challenge.

Birthday gate fold

I didn't  have a lot of time to get an entry in the QKR stampedes  flying high with balloons  challenge so I cut this simple gate fold card with balloons with my  silhouette.  I  think it  turned out nicely or something  fast and simple.

Christmas Pelican

For the Impression Obsession  Things that Fly challenge I decided to try this cute little  Pelican.  I stamped him three times and cut the  stumps so I could  dimensionalize them. Then I added a  few sparkles and  some puff paint for the snow.  This   stamp is  J220.

Red Birds

For Tuesday Throwdown's Things with Wings  challenge I decided to try this cascade fold.  It was fairly simple to cut and put together. It seems I've really been trying new folds this  week.

Bill's Birthday card

My nephew, Bill's Birthday is  this week so I thought since  Parade your crafts challenge was  birthdays I might as well use his  card.  A  birthday cant be complete without  balloons so I added a few!

Football easel Card

For the Crafty Catz Men and Boys Challenge I  just had to make this  football easel card.  Its  that time of  year when we  all become football widows.  I wish  my guys could go  to a game every Sat. because that makes more "play" time for me. LOL.  I  will also be using  this card for the Craft Spot technique challenge.  I simply love the print and cut  feature on my Silhouette.  It makes cutting out digital  stamps so much easier and neater.

Apple Lizzie

For  Whimsy Doodles back to school challenge I chose  Apple Lizzie and added a  blackboard. She is  just too cute!.

PenPal Mouse

As if I didn't have enough to do, my  sister found  another challenge for us to enter.  This  new  site is Catch the Bug. I will also be using him in the QKR stampede Challenge and the Eureka  Stamps Color Challenge.

Toasted marshmellows

For the Cardztv  I made this fire pit card with marshmellows.  It was  a little more plain than I wanted but I  guess my creativeness is  worn out today!!  I may  try  to add something to it  tomorrow but this is it for now.

Heidi 2

A few days ago I  was introduced to Little Miss Muffett Stamps.  I love  some of her images.  This little Heidi is one of my  quick favorites so  I used her in the Repeat Impressions sketch  challenge.

Butterfly card

I'm using this butterfly easel card for the shape Challenge at Eureka Stamps.

the buzz

For the  Silhouette Challenge and the  Silhouette online store challenge I made this  beehive  card and added  the Buzz to it.  I gave it to my  husband to remind him it was time to rob the bee hives again.

Snow Globe

Im not  quite ready for  Christmas Cards yet but since  C.r.a.f.t. 's challenge this week is  Christmas  I  got out a few things to make the card anyway. I  will  also be using it in the Parade Your Craft's anything  goes challenge and the  Our Daily Bread Christmas Challenge.

the  challenge this week at Impression Obsession is Dies.  I don't have a lot of choices as I am  new to their  line of  dies but I am sure I will be getting more and more.
 I used Sled - DIE108-F and Tree Line - DIE027-P.

Pick Up Truck

I am very sorry  Whimsical Designs  will no longer be having their challenges.  I tried to think what to make for the Something New Something Old  challenge.  I pulled out some of  my  oldest  stamp sets.  I need  a guy  card later this week so I decided to use this truck and for the new I used the striped paper I just  bought last  week.

Recess Time

For the  Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons Back to School Challenge I  downloaded their chalk board and  wrote my favorite school time on it!


My friend  Katie had her new  Baby.  Her  name  will be Isla.  I made  this  cute  nursery card for her.  I really loved making this card! I will be using it in the  Cut It Up Challenge!


The  challenge this week at Cardztv is Harvest.   I think this really red card with apples is   quite a harvest!  I will also be using it in the Silhouette Online   fall  Challenge and the Little Scrap Pieces anything goes challenge.

Pink One Layer

The   Challenge at Our Daily Bread is a One Layer card.  It was  very hard to not add embellishments or layers.   I've loved this  sentiment and thought id  also use it in the tender thoughts challenge at Eureka Stamps.


My daughter really  loves horses  so I just had to make her this Barn  step card.  It took a lot of  time to get it sized right but I really like it! I will be using it for the QKR stampede challenge as well as the Little Scrap Pieces challenge and the Parade Your Crafts Challenge. I  will also  enter it into the Cameo Creations  Challenge.

Acorn card

For the  Crafty Catz pleated  ribbon challenge
 I  decided to get started with my  Fall  cards.  I had this acorn left from last year and decided it was time to give him a home.  I wasn't  completely satisfied with the way he  turned out so I might add something to him later but he  will work for now!

Green Sunflower

For the sketch challenge at Meljen's Designs I decided to reuse one of my favorite digitals.  Wasn't  real sure if  I like it or not but  when it was  finished I was quite pleased.

Tuesday, September 3, 2013


For the C.r.a.f.t. Challenge I decided to get a jump on the graduation cards I will need in the fall!  Got  several made then realized I put the wrong date on them! Oh well that's easy enough to change.

Black and Yellow Get Well

My  Aunt Lila had  knee  replacement surgery on Wed. so I made her this  card.  Then thought I might as well use it for the Cardztv color pop  challenge as  well as the Craft Spot  get well challenge.

Pink Explosion Cake Box

For the Silhouette Online I had to decide which shape to use. I had been  wanting to make this  cake box for a friend's  birthday so decided  now was the time.  It was really easy to cut and  put together.  I will be making more of these.
