StampInsanity Challenge #4

I was intrigued by the challenge this week at StampInsanity, so, I decided I needed to play along.;)  This week’s challenge was to create a Stair Step Fold card.  I’d never tried this before, but I really enjoyed it! 


This one’s a little blurry, but you can see the steps better…


Lita digi stamp from StampInsanity.  She rocks!

I’m going to give this to a friend of mine, hopefully she’ll like it!


Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge #2

I needed to make a Thank You card today, so, I decided to do one for the challenge over at Off the Wall Craftiness!  I really liked the colors in the inspiration pictures for this week’s challenge.  Also, I decided to try something new on this card, flocking.  It didn’t turn out perfectly, but it was a learning experience, and I think I’ll do better with future projects now that I know what to expect.:)



My camera just would not capture the true color of the teal paper, it kept looking bluer than it really is.  Oh well.

Thanks for looking!

Friends Having Fun Sketch Challenge #1!

I’m excited to show you the card I made for the very first Sketch Challenge at Friends Having Fun!  I’m honored to be working as one of the Sketch Sorority Sisters!  Every second Monday of the month we’ll bring you a new sketch from our leader Dani for you to work with!

Here’s this month’s sketch…

And here is my card…



Paper/Cardstock from DCWV, Recollections, Creative Memories.  Digital stamp from Prairie Fairy.  Colored with various colored pencils.

We have a wonderful sponsor this month!  Prairie Fairy was kind enough to let us work with some of her beautiful images, and whoever wins this month’s sketch challenge will win 5 Prairie Fairy images!  You have until midnight May 7 to enter, so, there’s plenty of time to play.

Also, be sure to check out the projects from the other Sketch Sorority Sisters:  Dani, Juanita, Margie, and Tonya.

Thanks for looking!  Hope you get a chance to play along!:)

A little madness…

I made a card!  I feel like it’s been forever since I made one.  I did this yesterday, before coming down with the plague my children have.  I do try to teach them to share, so, I guess I can’t complain too much.;)  Anyway, on to the card…


And here’s one without flash, in natural light…


Challenges – Oh, Alice!:  Chapter 7:  We’re all M.A.D. here (monochromatic and distressed)

This card was really fun to make.  I love distressing!  Hope you like it!  Thanks for looking!

FHF – Kaleidoscope Krew’s Color Challenge #1!

Yes!  Today is the very first Kaleidoscope Krew Color Challenge on the Friends Having Fun blog!!  I’m so excited to be a member of this Krew!  The first Monday of each month we’ll have a Color Challenge picked out by the fabulous Alison.  Here are the colors Alison chose for our first challenge…

Aren’t they such pretty, happy colors? 

I actually ended up making two projects for this challenge.(I tend to get over enthusiastic sometimes);)

Here’s my first project…



It was a mixed nuts container! 

The toile print paper is The Paper Studio.  I’m not sure what the other papers are.

And here’s the project I finished last night…




My son flipped on the tv the other day and it happened to be a crafting show on!  They were making these little accordion style albums and I thought they were really cute, so, I decided to try one.  It was fun!

Paper from The Paper Studio, Creative Memories, and others that I don’t know.  Stamps used were JoAnn Craft Essentials Monogram Stamps.

Thanks for looking!  Hope you’ll join us with our challenge!:)
