Light Bulbs

Over  the weekend  my husband finally completed an  electrical project  I'd been waiting  rather  impatiently for him to do.  he is out of  town this week so I made this card to put in his suitcase to let him   know I appreciate him finishing the job for me.  I decided to  use monochrome colors so I could use this card in the Cute Card  Thursday monochrome challenge and because it just seemed to fit  that way.  Through the Purple Haze has a  romantic challenge.  After  36 years.  This is called  romance at my house! LOL

Red Flowers

I really  like the way this card turned out.  I used a textured polka paper at the  bottom to give it a special look.  I think the  plaid green makes the  flowers really  pop.  I layered the  blue bottle and flower to  give the card some depth.  
Just Add Ink has a  Texture Challenge
Art Impressions has a flowers and foliage challenge.
Cards TV and Jo's Scrap Shack both have anything goes challenges.

Owl Shadow Box

I love these  cute little shadow box  cards I found in the Silhouette Store.  I'm sending this one to my friend Basie who loves all things OWL.  Also I want to use it in the Simon Says Wednesday  Pop Up challenge.  Word Art Wednesday and Cards TV both have an anything goes  challenge.

Ice Cream

I made this one last night and forgot to post it.  Good thing I spent  some time cleaning off my desk this morning.  Fab N Funky has a  "For A friend" challenge.    What says friendship more than sharing a delicious bowl of ice cream?  City Crafter has a  Summertime  theme.  I  simply love ice cream in the Summertime. 

Little witch

I found this  sweet  witch in  my left over stash from last year and decided she was a  perfect fit for the Tuesday Morning Sketch.   I love the  spider web paper behind her.  Marker Pop  has a  Halloween themed  challenge.

Well, as usual I didn't get as much done as I had planned but that's ok  tomorrow is yet another day.  Die Cutting Divas has a 3d, shaker or Shaped card  challenge.  I went with 3  D  this time.  I've been seeing a lot of these twist  pop cards and wanted to  try them. I used several leaf  punches and  a couple dies too.   It was a fun card to put together and I am  sure I  will do more of this  style soon. Through the Craft Room Door has an  anything goes challenge.  Crafty Sentiments has a die and punch challenge

Wishing you a Happy Birthday

Wow! Has  my  last post really been in July? Where  did all that time go?  My  house is a real chaotic mess right now. With my daughter and  my two  Grands  living in  the house I  seem never to  have time to sit and do anything.   But I'm working on  changing that so I can atleast  have a few minutes each  day to relax.  I will be  posting several cards today that I've worked on during this past week. 

This card is one my sister copied from somewhere but I do  not  know where.  I saw it when  she finished it and then went on to make mine just a wee bit  different.   I'm always in need of  Birthday cards so I made 6 of these in different  colors.
