Little Red Wagon #422

I'm making gift card folders for my grandchildren and I finished one in time to send to Little Red Wagon.
I used the Lawn Fawn Magic Color Slider.  Jennifer McGuire has a tutorial here.
The images are from MFT, colored with Zigs, and the sentiment is from My Craft Spot.
The gift card attaches to the back of the slider. 

One down and five more to go.

Thanks for dropping by.  I'll show you the others when they're done.

Inkspirational #149

Inkspirational has a photo image to inspire us for this challenge.
One "out of the box" card under my belt and now I'm back to my old literal interpretations. 
I stamped the bottles from Altenew in Delicata gold and then watercolored them with the same gold and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink.  Some gold spatters and die cut sentiment from MFT and the card is done.  I decided this would make a nice anniversary card.

Thanks for dropping by.  I'm up to my ears in gift card holders for my grandchildren.  I'll post them when I'm done.

Addicted to CAS #126

Kylie is the host for Addicted to CAS and she chose this as our Code Word.
Everyone loves a little sparkle and I have plenty on my card.
Unfortunately you can't see it all.  Not only does the star sparkle but the tree from C9 is from sparkle paper too.  And then there's the WOS on the word 'sparkle'. 

How will you make your card sparkle?  Whatever you do, you have the chance to win a $10 gift voucher from Happy Little Stampers.

Merry Monday #268

I thought I was in trouble.  Merry Monday wants a Santa hat on our cards this week.  My supply of Santas and hats is limited so for once I thought out of the box.  I mean way out.
I used a stitched slope die from SSS to cut red and white paper to make a hat and fur and stitched circles for the pom pom.  I knew I wanted to use Ho Ho Ho as my sentiment but I didn't have a stamp so I used a 'holiday' die from PTI and did a little surgery that left me with just the 'ho'.  That's it.  A completely die cut card. 

The weekend is upon us so I hope to get some a little more crafting done.  Maybe some sympathy cards since I depleted my supply with cards for my daughter-in-law whose father passed away and her mother.  I also sent one to a dear classmate who lost her grandson in a car accident.  It's been a sad week.

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope your weekend goes well.

Less Is More #357, CAS Watercolor December, and HLS Watercolor

Although my Christmas cards are done I keep making them for challenges like Less Is More who want a red and green card.  I mean that says Christmas to me.

Since I watercolored this PB image with Distress Oxides I'm also sending my card to the CAS Watercolor Challenge where the theme is Anything Goes and Happy Little Stampers Watercolor where the theme is Christmas.

I'm glad you dropped by today.  I love it when you do.
