SSW2-Craftwork Card Stamps


Happy Day Before Thanksgiving!!

I have to tell you guys that I made this card THREE times this week.  The first time,  I had a senior moment and got my dates confused.  So I quietly posted it on Saturday the 18th (I had forgotten that Wednesday was when I needed it to post, not Saturday) Sooo, I made another.  It's below ... for some reason, I just hated it; the green and pink wasn't working for me.  Aaaaaand I made a third one (see above).  The good news is, I got three Christmas cards done trying to complete ONE DT project.  Seriously, getting old (and forgetful) really stinks!

Any who ... it's time for another challenge over on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Challenge blog.  This week we are sponsored by our fearless leader, Anne.  She has a stamp set to give to our winner.

I'm featuring an oldie but goodie from the Bugaboo Stamp store called Kidz: Christmas Boy And His Dog.

Why don't you join in the fun?

Stella Says "Happy New Baby!"


It's Sunday and time for a new sketch challenge over on the Catch The Bug blog.

This fortnight I'm using the darling Bugaboo image: Bentley - On The Inside.  It's hilarious and the perfect image for a new baby.  Yep, baby Raylee arrived a tad early so I SUDDENLY needed a "welcome baby" card ASAP.  This image was so quick to color that it really fit the bill.

We hope you join in the fun!

SSW2-125 A Day For Daisies


Happy Wednesday!

Yesterday, a friend pointed out to me that our kids have only 4 weeks left in this semester.  Ack!!  Really?!!  And that means that Christmas is only 5 weeks away.  How can that be?!!  (taking a deep, cleansing breath)  I can do this.

It's Wednesday and the Christmas rush is ON!!

We have another sketch challenge over on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 blog.   We have Tammy from the A Day For Daisies shop as our sponsor.  She is giving our winner a $12 Gift Certificate to her shop.  

Why don't you join in the fun?

3-D Card


I think that it's just plain mean to have snow so soon after Daylight Savings kicked in.  Here we are, trying to adjust to how soon the sun goes down and then add in the super-cold temperatures too?!!  I'm so cold that I'm considering setting my feet on fire!

So how better to deal with the freezy-squeezy weather ... why, make a winter card of course!  The Art Impressions blog challenged us to make a 3-D card and of course I wanted to use my new AI set: Santa Paws.  I decided on a slider; I made my little dachshund running toward his buddies, who are no doubt Christmas caroling.

I love slider cards.  I could play with them all day!
