For You

I think the little jewelry ornaments are so neat. The one on my card is a 1x1 square.

Mon Amie

My card was created by using an embossing folder then adding layers and layers of color. I then sprayed iridescent gold glimmer mist over the card. I cut slits in the card to tuck the leaf ribbon behind the roses.

A Teacher's Prayer

The first and second image is of the front of my Teacher's Prayer poem card. The third image is the inside of the cards. The author is unknown. I needed a card for two different teachers and thought I'd post them for the {caardvarks} challenge to decorate both the outside and inside of a card. Here's the link for the current challenge....

The blackboard can be found here.... and the children here...

Thank you Cathe Holden for your wonderful inspiration and artwork!

A home is made of love & dreams

I absolutely love fall. I love the warm earthy colors and sweaters. I am glad to finally see the trees changing colors and the weather getting cooler here in Tennessee!

{Caardvarks} Sensantional Stickers Challenge Part 2

Ok I finally tried a Halloween card for the {Caardvarks} Sensational Stickers Challenge to scraplift from another designer. Again I chose Eva's Halloween card because it is so darn cute! If you look closely you can see I used black crepe paper to make the cape. Isn't the bear cute!
Here's the link ...
The bear is retired called Big Beary. I think it is just too precious. A huge thanks goes out to Phyllis Long aka SparklePlenty1000 at SplitcoastStampers. I would have to say she "introduced" me to the bear stamp ;) You can see why I feel in love with the stamp here...

Fright Night

I can't help thinking Of Edgar Allen Poe when I see a black raven. The graveyard scene was downloaded here....;pg=2
It's such a neat site that has illustrations from old books. This one was from World's Best Music (1900).
The gray area was created by taking glossy white card stock and waving it above a candle. I then stamped Happy Halloween, which removed some of the soot. So cool but creepy all at the same time.

I just love my Jack Skellington cards.

Damask Thank You

I absolutely love the chocolate brown velvet ribbon on my card. I started with a plain white piece of cardstock. I sponged the card brown and pink. I then stamped and heat embossed the brown damask pattern all over the card. Stamped thank you and popped up with foam tape.
