I made this simple Christmas card for the Stamping Royalty challenge #205. The challenge is to make a card with Snowflakes. I made it simple and only used one. It didn't come out the way I envisioned it, but it will do. I am going to have to tweek it a little more but I am not feeling well so it will have to wait. Merry Christmas everyone!

I made a card for the Case this Sketch challenge, #52. Here is a picture of the sketch below:
I used Stampin' Up!'s new Festive Flurry die and some silver glimmer paper to make the snowflake. I also used the new Photopolymer Christmas stamp set: Endless Wishes
It is a very cute set! It has a lot of sentiments and some snowflakes. You can find it at Stampin' Up!.com
I'm also entering this in the following challenges:
Hi all, I am still here! I've been exploring classes and trying to thoroughly clean my house, and other stuff, so I haven't been doing many projects. I did order this kit from Stampin'Up! though. I filled some cellophane bags with treats for the kids at church. The kit is Simply Created from SU in their holiday catalog. You can order them until January 4, I think. I am not a demonstrator but I work for one. Her name is Dawn Olchefske and she has a blog called DoStamping with Dawn. If you visit her blog tell her I sent ya, thanks!
The packages are really simple to put together and the kit is not expensive. I think it is only $9.95 but the stamp set is extra. (only around 10 bucks too) You could easily just write something on the tags too.
Well, that is my post. I hope you come back again. Thanks! Have a Happy Fall season. (I have a ton of leaves to rake!)

Hi everyone! Back with another birthday card. This one is primarily for the Color Throwdown challenge #257
I love the colors of this one and just had to join in. I made a pretty simple card this time. I used a background stamp and multi-colored it. I then embossed it to give it a shiny appearance and hopefully make the colors more intense. I used a simple birthday banner and topped it off with a button.
Thanks for visiting and come again!
This is my original card-I took the picture without flash (below). I added the pink background to it, (above) after thinking that it needed more support to stand up and for strength. The white card stock isn't that sturdy. I could have added any of the colors that I used in the medallion to give it whatever feel I wanted. I think green would have made it a little more masculine.
I am also posting this on the Make It Monday blog challenge #156-Anything Goes

I had so much fun making this card. I really like how it turned out. It is a
little -LOT-different for me, but I like it. It is so much fun to explore and create-don't you think?
I made this card for the Paper Players Challenge #160:
And I also combined it with the challenge on the color Q blog:
The colors are so pretty I just had to try to make something with them!
So, what do you think? The colors aren't exact but I think that is okay. It's what I had to work with.
I used Stampin' Up!s Patterned Occasions stamp set. I think it was one of last year's Sale-a-bration sets.
I also used some off white burlap under the striped ribbon.
Thanks for visiting!

I have made a card for a couple of challenges this time. The first challenge is the Seize the Birthday challenge:

Hi all, it is time to play with the Paper Players in their challenge this week. I found them just yesterday and thought I would play along. It is a color challenge this time. Here are the colors that they want you to use:
I haven't been making very many cards lately and I didn't today either, but I made a 6x6 scrapbook page!
I love this picture of my grandson, he does make me smile, all the time.
I've really got to get back into the swing of crafting! It is so fun!
I used my new large scallop punch from Stampin' Up! and my new doily punch from EK that I purchased in a craft store. Then I punched another smaller scallop, stamped my image and punched that out too. I sponged the verse with the baked brown sugar to make it pop a bit. I actually used a card sketch to make the layout. This is pretty flat so it will fit into my page cover real nice and into my 6x6 page album!
Thanks for taking a look and please leave a comment if you can, I appreciate it!
This is for the Paper Players challenge: #154

Just letting those of you who are faithful followers to me that I am still here but my grand-kids are staying for a week and I can't get into my craft room to do any cards or just about anything. Next week I will be back in the swing when my life settles down a little! Thanks for visiting, see you soon!

Hi followers, I am going away on a vacation, Yeah! I will be gone for about 2 1/2 weeks. I won't have any posts until I get back and I will be ready to post again when I do return. I appreciate you sticking with me. I gotta go and help my mom, far, far, away. So, I'll "talk" to you again when I return. Thanks, Shari
