Happy New Year!

The last challenge of the year for me is CASual Fridays #83--to create
a clean and simple holiday card in 10 minutes or less.

I gathered my supplies and a timer and finally inked up some
CASual Fridays stamps. Here's my card.

It took me all of 4 minutes and 27 seconds, which didn't include
letting the Stickles dry before I took the pic.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog
and for your kind comments, too.
Here's wishing you all a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Neat and Tangled--Kindness Matters

December was such a busy month. I was honored to guest design 
for a blog and two stamp companies! Here is my last card as guest designer
for Neat and Tangled using a favorite set--Kindness Matters.

I love the sentiments on this set. I inked up most of the images and sentiments
with different colored inks and stamped them "subway art" style.


And a heads up that there's a year end sale at Neat and Tangled.
All 4x6 sets are now $10.50 and 3x4 sets are just $6.50.
The sale runs from today thru December 31st. Hurry over for the best selection!

Thank you, Danielle, for having me as December's guest designer.
I love your stamps and look forward to next month's release!

Fresh Squeezed Stamps--THANKS

Hello, friends! I hope all of you had an enjoyable Christmas! 
Here is my last card as guest designer for Fresh Squeezed Stamps.

It's a thank you card using stamps from two sets--Games People Play and The Sweet Life.

The bird and game tiles were affixed to some Sassafras patterned paper with 
dimensional adhesive. This card came together rather quickly thanks to the paper.
Note to self:  De-hoard your stash of patterned papers!

And there's still time to play along with Squeeze-a-Palooza at Fresh Squeezed Stamps.
Visit the blog and join the challenge for your chance to win
some Fresh Squeezed Stamps!

Thank you, Ryann and Shannon for having me as a guest designer this month.
I had a lot of fun creating cards with your awesome stamps!

Squeeze-a-Palooza #3

It's Fresh Squeezed Stamps' third installment of Squeeze-a-Palooza 
and the challenge this month is a photo inspiration. You must use Fresh Squeezed Stamps 
but if you don't own any and want to play along, visit the blog 
for the free digi stamp to play with.

There are several photos to choose from and I settled on this one.

And here's my card. I heat embossed a woodgrain pattern and white embossed
the bird, hearts, and sentiment from The Sweet Life set.

The images were colored with Copics, fussy cut and mounted
on the Reverse Wonky Rectangle card base with dimensional adhesive.

Visit Fresh Squeezed Stamps for all the details and we hope you'll play along.
The challenge runs through to December 31st.

There will be two winners--one random and another who receives
the most votes on their project.
We hope you'll join the fun and tell your friends to vote for you
so you can win some Fresh Squeezed Stamps!
