Merry Monday #165 and SAS4Kids

Here’s another really short post.  I’ve been working on this card for two days!  Hubby has been off work all the kids are home and my daughter took two day trips and let me with everyone!  It’s been slow going making a card:(  But, everyone is finally in bed and I have a few minutes before I fall over and go to sleep!  This card actually took a while because I had to search for all the components and I changed my mind half way though;)

I’m going to enter this card in the Merry Monday #165 challenge🙂 This weeks challenge is candles and flowers:)  Of course, my card will be going into the Christmas box for Send A Smile 4 Kids! 🙂

165Now, I was going in a totally different direction with this card, I even had the design “approved” by my daughter;)  I was going to use gold glitter paper as my background and gold ribbon.  Well, that’s not what I made;) lol

This is the paper I started with, I didn’t make it, I found it on Etsy listed as Bokeh Christmas Digital Paper.  I love this paper!  It’s actually a deeper red down on the left  and bottom.  I have so much trouble getting all the colors to look just right with the lighting I have available:(

The Bokeh looked like reflections of the candle light to me.  Anyway…..I used an image from Fred She Said called, Christmas Rose Coloured Set.  I cut it out with a Spellbinders die, and popped it up with Stampin’ Up! dimentionals.  I also used Stampin’ Up! 1/8″ Ribbon Taffeta (retired).  The top corner snow is called Snowflake Corner, by Memory Box.

I’m still living partially out of boxes, so I had to search for my ribbon and my Memory Box die, so annoying! 😦  I was going to use what I had on hand (gold) but then decided I really wanted the white:)  I hope you like my card, it really was Simply Made;)

Thanks for coming by to look at my blog! 🙂  Most people will probably be out watching fireworks, but two of my little ones are afraid of the noise, so I put them down early, hoping they would sleep through it.  So sad:(  Lawrence was actually excited about the fireworks until he remembered how loud they are:(   I hope you all have had a safe and happy 4th! 🙂

SAS4Kids with guest

I don’t have a card today that I made myself, but that’s ok, I have a bunch of guest cards for you to see! 🙂  Today my guest is Holly Blaskie, from Sherwood, MI:)  Here cards were sent to me to share with Send A Smile 4 Kids! 🙂  Holly is very generous and has shared cards previously:)

First I want to share the card that I will be entering for Holly into the blog challenge over at SAS4Kids.  The current challenge is Animal Cards for Kids.

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAIsn’t this too cute?!  I don’t know where she got this image, but it’s adorable!:)  Wonderful image, paper and great coloring!

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAThis is a great card for kids, and I do know where this image came from;)  This is a rubber stamp from Stampin’ Up!  I have this stamp also, but I don’t have the set:(  The set is called Fun In The Sun (retired).  Holly did a great job with this stamp using just enough color!

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAI also know where this image came from, Fred She Said, it’s called The Old Truck Digi. I’ve used this image in the past as well:)  This image was pre colored, the set some with 4 pre colored images and also B&W so you can color your own:)  It looks great with this layout and paper! 🙂

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAThis card just makes me think of Summer:)  I think it would be a great card for a teen girl:)

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA    SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

Are these too cute or what?!  I had no idea these existed, I had to go find them!  I found out the balloon animals are from Avery Elle.  I’ve never heard of this company, but I do love these little animal balloons! 🙂  The paper is just perfect, and Holly used little stickers on the left side of the green balloon.  Little silver circles with color in the center.  I’ve used these before, I think they’re a great alternative to gems because they’re easier to mail:)  I can’t remember where they’re from, and I can’t find mine:(  Anyone know?  Please share in the comments:)

Holly has more in her box that I’ll share in a future post, or two;)  I love Holly’s clean and simple style, she does it so well! 🙂

 

Thanks for coming by today! 🙂  I hope you’ll come back soon! 🙂

Merry Monday #163, another guest from SAS4Kids

Sorry, no dogs today, but I do have horses!:)  I love horses, cats and dogs! 🙂  Birds are nice and bunnies…..but today, it’s horses! 🙂  But first, I want to show you the card I made for Merry Monday Challenge #163🙂  The theme this week is Red & White:)

163I love Merry Monday!:)  Last week I received an honorable mention for the card I made! 🙂  You can see it here🙂  A great honor, thank you Merry Monday! 🙂  Now on to this weeks card:

aaSDC16666aThis card looks even better in hand! 🙂  I used Shimmery White cardstock from Stampin’ Up! (retired) It’s a shame they retired it, it’s great for watercoloring, which is what I did! 🙂  The Poinsettia is from Fred She Said, it comes colored, but I actually colored it myself!! 🙂  I know, strange things do happen! 😉 lol  Anyway….I used  Pointy Poinsettia Flowers DIGI & CUTFILE SET ( I copied that right out of the store) I didn’t realize Tracey had added the cutefile, I cut all mine by hand! 🙂  I would have to cut by hand anyway, I don’t have a cutting machine:(

First I printed the FSS file right onto the Shimmery White cardstock from Stampin’ Up!, then I cut them out, and then I colored them.  You could color them first is you like;)  I used the Aqua Painter brush from Stampin’ Up! and refill bottles of Real Red, and Old Olive.  If you click on my photo and enlarge it, you can see the shimmer:)  I gently pushed some of the petals up and used Stampin’ Up! Dimentionals to hold them in place.

For the base I used Real Red, also the middle strip.  I added some lace that I found in my stash.  The center pretty thing (technical term;) lol) I found at Hobby Lobby.  The white is embossed with Stampin’ Up! embossing folder, Petals a Plenty (retired).  I know it’s so sad to see all these pretty things retired, but of course Stampin’ Up! has more different pretty things! 🙂  I just can’t NOT use craft items that I have;) !

Ok, that’s enough about my card, now on to our guest for today!  I will be showcasing cards from another person who sends cards to me for Send A Smile 4 Kids, her name is Geri Dean:) Geri sent me a box with over 200 cards!!!  She is also sending to OWH until they shut down in Aug. 2015.  Geri doesn’t send a box but maybe every quarter, but it’s a nice surprise to get such a large box! 🙂  Thank you Geri!! 🙂  Geri does have some that are the same, you would have to with such a large number of cards, but I’ve pulled out some of my favorites:)

Geri sent a large number of cards with horses that are great! 🙂  I won’t show them all, there are too many, but here is a good sample:)

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

This card has an awesome 3D hat!  I’m pretty sure it’s faux leather, but it looks real! 🙂  What an awesome card! 🙂

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA  SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

These two cards have the same image, but look very different with the layouts Geri used!

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA  SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

 

I love both of these cards, the single horse has paper on the right that has been embossed.  The running horses is beautiful in hand, I love the image, the papers and the punched border! 🙂  I will have more of Geri’s horses in a future post:)  Here are some other cards that Geri made:

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA  SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

Geri really has a good eye for papers and colors!  This is a great stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAI had trouble getting a good photo of these cards:(  The colors are more subtle than it shows in the photo, more like pastels.  They are so adorable and I have more to show you at a later time;)

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA  SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

Aren’t these too cute?!  Pretty colors for girls, nice layouts and paper:)  That’s it for today, more to come at a later date:)

 

Thanks for coming by today, I hope you can come again soon! 🙂  Check out the Merry Monday challenge, they have a new Christmas themed challenge every week! 🙂  Also check out the SAS4Kids challenge, they have a new challenge every other week! 🙂

Merry Monday #162, Friday Mashup #213 & SAS4Kids

I have a short post tonight with only two cards, but I made both of them:)  I’m actually entering another challenge, but the title was way too long! 😉  lol

My first card is for Merry Monday #162, their challenge is always a Christmas Challenge.  This week the challenge is to add one or more tags to your card.

162I’m also going to enter my card at the Doodle Panty challenge, Ants in my pantry digital challenge 6.  I know, what a long title, but their images are so cute, check them out! 🙂

abSDC16606

This is a Doodle Pantry digital image called Charlie Sledding.  It’s a pre colored image, and I think it’ll be great for one of the kids at Send A Smile 4 Kids! 🙂   Yes, I start early with Christmas, it’s so easy to get behind;) !   I used an embossing folder by Darice, some silver ribbon from Stampin’ Up!, a snowflake punch from Martha Stewart, and I printed the blue background paper on my computer.  The blue paper comes in the kit from Doodle Pantry:)  Oh, almost forgot,  The snowflake and the two glittery sides are Stampin’ Up! Glimmer Paper, Dazzling Diamonds.  I popped up the tag with Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Dimentionals.

 

My second card is for the challenge over at the Friday Mashup #213.

FM213

This week’s Mashup Challenge is:
  • Create a project with the colors “Cajun Craze, Island Indigo and Garden Green”
  • Create a project with a “Father’s Day Theme”
  • or Mash it Up! and Create a project with “The challenge colors and a Father’s Day theme”.

abSDC15673I chose a Father’s Day Theme because I still had one card for Father’s Day that I had not posted yet:)  I love this card:)  I used a digital image from Fred She Said called, Emma In Her Cool Cap.  I used the pre colored version, but you can also get this image in black & white to color yourself:)  The papers are Stampin’ Up! Real Red and Soft Suede.  The heart border was made with a Stampin’ Up! punch called Confetti Hearts Border punch.  I took a few of the punch outs and added them on the top left.  I just printed the sentiment at the bottom of the image.

 

Thank you so much for coming by today! 🙂  I appreciate your interest! 🙂  I will be back in a few days with some more cards, hope to see you then! 🙂

Send A Smile 4 Kids and guests

Well, we’re leaving May behind and starting June, I can hardly believe how fast times flies by!  I have a one more Father’s Day card to share, and then we’re moving on! 🙂

I did not make these cards!  The cards I have today are made by people who send me cards for Send A Smile 4 Kids:)  I have volunteered to accept cards that are sent in from around the USA, I sort them, label them (if needed) and pack them up to deliver to a Children’s Hospital near my home:)  I have some wonderful cardmakers sending cards in for my hospital and I like to share their talents with you! 🙂

I have two cardmakers to highlight today:)  My first cardmaker actually has her own blog, her name is Andrea La Vigne, from TX.  You can find Andrea and the instructions for her cards here.  Both of the cards I’m showing are on her blog now, you just need to scroll down a little to find them both separately;)

Here is the first one:

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAI love this card, it’s so great for a dad! 🙂  I know that this image is from Fred She Said, I’ve used it myself:)  Please visit Andrea for more details:)

 

Second card for Andrea:

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERANormally, I wouldn’t show someone elses cards if they have their own blog, but I love this card so much, that I asked Andrea for permission to show you all! 🙂   Don’t you love the colors?!!  I wish I had a hundred of these to share! 😉  If you love it too, be sure to go visit Andrea over on her blog to find out how she did it !:)

 

Next I have some cards that were sent in back in February.  These cards have since gone on to the hospital for a child to enjoy:)  I took photos to be able to share them here with you:)  These four cards were all made by Debbie Long, from Goose Creek, SC:)

Debbie sent multiples of these cards, I used some for Father’s Day, and the rest I’ve been using for masculine cards for the older patients.  These are great cards and could be used for any occasion! 🙂

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA      SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERALook at these, aren’t they handsome/adorable?!  I love the papers, colors, and image! 🙂  Debbie did a great job and I’m sure these cards were loved and appreciated! 🙂

I’d like thank all my card senders! 🙂  Everyone does a wonderful job and I know that any of the SAS4Kids hospitals that receive these cards are overwhelmed by the kindness of these gifts! 🙂

May is over, so I will be working on drawing the names for my May Blog Candy!  Anyone who made a comment or sent in cards in May was entered:)  I will have the winning names by June 15th! 🙂  Thank you to all who sent in cards and/or took the time to comment! 🙂

Thanks for coming by today to check out the cards! 🙂  I hope to be back soon:)

Blog Candy & Freshly Made Sketches #185

This will be another short post today.  I hope everyone enjoyed their Mother’s Day! 🙂

Today I have a card that will be going into the Send A Smile 4 Kids box🙂  It’s for Father’s Day, yes we just keep rolling along;)  I’m also going to enter this card in the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches #185. Here is their sketch for this week:

FMS Final 185-001ab fathers day glove 1Yes, I do stay close to the sketch;) lol  One day I’ll surprise you all….but not today;)  I’m a little annoyed with this card:(  I printed two papers to use, I wanted to use the other paper first.  Sadly, I mounted it crooked:(  So this is plan B paper.  Since I was in a hurry, because I won’t be able to finish up tomorrow and still submit it on time, I went ahead and used this paper.  I love this paper, it’s from Stampin’ Up! and is called Well Worn.  I actually use it a lot:)  I don’t have the actual paper anymore, it’s retired, but I have it on My Digital Studio.  I just print what I need, whenever I need it:)

Anyway, the other paper is from the same set, so it uses the same colors.  I picked the colors for the first paper, so the Soft Suede, looks a little lost:(  I was going to use Not Quite Navy, but it’s hiding somewhere, because it’s retired:(  I was going to find it before I used this paper. It actually does look better in hand:)  That’s a long story, sorry:(  The colors I used are Soft Suede and Cajun Craze.

The image is digital and I bought it from Fred She Said Designs, it’s called Valentine’s Day-Catch Your Heart.  I took the image over to my Print Shop program and added the “Dad”.  I think it works for Father’s Day:)

Be sure to either scroll down or go here to find out about my Blog Candy!! 🙂

Thanks for coming by today, I’m happy to have you visit! 🙂  Be back soon with more Father’s Day cards! 🙂

UPDATES-Merry Monday # 155 and Freshly Made Sketches #183

I have some updates for this post, I will add them as bold print:)

I have a lot to share today and it wouldn’t all fit in the title!  I have Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, two different challenges, Christmas, images by Fred She Said and SAS4Kids! No time to waste, lets get going! 🙂

I made two cards last night, one for Merry Monday #155 and another for Freshly Made Sketches #183.  Merry Monday’s challenge was to use a cat or a dog.

I received an Honorable Mention for this card from Merry Monday #155.

Honorable Mention  15665

abSDC15665This image is from Fred She Said, and is called Kiss Me Scottie.  I also used an embossing folder with Holly (close enough to Mistletoe) Stampin’ Up! Real Red cardstock, and some really pretty washi tape, also Stampin’ Up! that you can get discounted right now, called All is Calm.  I used the same layout as the challenge for Freshly Made #183, which is coming up next:)

 

FMS Final 183-001Yes, I usually stay pretty close to the sketch;)

 

My ProjectThis image is also by Fred She Said, called Nolan with a Sign/Heart.  I love Fred She Said because you can get your digital images colored or b/w so you can color them yourself:)  I used Stampin’ Up! Pacific Point, Real Red, and Soft Suede cardstock. I think he’s so darn cute!

 

Switching gears, we are on to Mother’s Day with a new guest, Mairead Reid (rhymes with parade)  Mairead is from Ireland and is a good friend of mine:)  She is living in the USA now in the Northwest.

My friend, Mairead, had this to say about the kimono, “A Japanese lady I knew in Atlanta learned that I made cards and gave me a bunch of her old ones for me to “upcycle”. The cards had all Japanese images and of course are very unusual for us here in this part of the world. So I just cut them up and used parts to make new cards. Sometimes I add a border of stitching to make it more authentically mine and more handmade.”

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERATwo different, lovely pinks, the flowers in the first card are also from Fred She Said called Lenten Roses – Hellebores.  I was shocked to discover that I don’t own this design from FSS, I thought I had everything Fred She Said! It comes in 8 different colors.  A beautiful flower and I love the cut-out design!  The kimono is amazing, it appears to be a lazor cut design and it is gorgeous laid over the pink!

 Mairead gave me this info regarding the three lovely different colored flowers: “The three stamped flowers are colored with 3-D Ink Glaze pens – it gives an embossed look. The stem was a stencil.”

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERABoth of these cards are beautiful, the flowers in the top one are shiny, I don’t know how she did that.  The flowers in the second card also look glossy, and the pink strip is glittery.  The kids are going to love giving these to their moms.  Oh, dear, I forgot, all Mairead’s cards will be going to Send A Smile 4 Kids!  But wait, there’s one more! 🙂

 Mairead gave me this update on the butterfly: “The butterfly on that last one was the left over (or negative) bits from a peel-off butterfly. There is a technique to pick up all the left over bits, so you don’t waste anything from your peel-off sheet.

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERALook at this beautiful cut-out!  It has a very delicate pattern that is hard to see here.  The butterfly is decorated with gold!  This card is beautiful in hand, the photo doesn’t do it justice!

Actually, all the cards shown here today will be going to Send A Smile 4 Kids, they have a blog challenge that you can find here.

Be sure to check out the Blog Candy I have coming up in May, you can find it here! 🙂

Thanks for taking the time to come by and read my blog today! 🙂  Hope to see you soon with Father’s Day cards and more! 🙂

Merry Monday #88 & Fred She Said Christmas Party

Fred She Said is having a Christmas Party Giveaway! From Wednesday Dec. 18 until Monday Dec. 23 Midnight EST.

Come see the Fred She Said DT’s fabulous projects 🙂  Please leave a comment at the Fred She Said Blog for a chance to win one of 3 $10 Fred She Said gift certificates or post a link to a recent Christmas or Winter project  using Fred She Said products for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate 🙂

Also at the Fred She Said Facebook Page there will be an extra $10 gift certificate to giveaway.  All you have to do there is post a recipe ( or link to a recipe) of your favourite holiday recipe or treat 🙂  All details are at the Fred She Said Blog.

I wanted to be sure and tell you about the Fred She Said Party over on the FSS blog! 🙂  Be sure to check it out for some great giveaways!

Now I have three cards to share! 🙂  I’ve already entered one at Merry Monday #88, but I think I can enter one more:) I’ve given all the cards away, so I will have to post details as I remember them.

Here’s their challenge:

MM New Look Sketches-021Here’s my first card:

Poster3This is a very simple card, but I love it!  I know my DIL checks out my blog now and then, so I have to ask her to not tell Matthew this is his card;)  I got the background from Raspberry Road Designs.  It’s called Blue Christmas Paper Set.  There are other Blue Christmas sets to match, including a freebie:)  Right now they are having a 50% off sale, so hurry over there!

Anyway……I picked out the paper and thought about what I would do next.  I flipped the image, and knew the deer would be perfect!  The deer are a Memory Box die called Deer Trio.  I cut them apart and placed them in the “snow”, I glued them down with sticky dots, not pop ups.  Then I looked at it a few days and thought about what I wanted to add.  I decided I didn’t want to add anything;)  It’s clean and simple, and I love it, I hope my grandson will too! 🙂

My next two cards are alike in that they use a technique called Starburst , I found the technique instructions here.  My next card:

Half-fold Card2I just couldn’t get the colors right for this photo, at least not to my satisfaction;)  But the card is gone so I had to do the best I could to present it.  The papers are from imaginisce, the series was called Polar Expressions.  I had a number of the papers and some chipboard stickers.  The bear is a chipboard sticker that is popped up with Stamin’ Up!,  Stampin’ Dimentionals.  I bought it several years ago, but I still love it! 🙂  I used the fronts and the backs of the papers to make my Starburst.

Last card for tonight:

Half-fold Card1Now the colors in this photo look awesome and I don’t know why, I took the photos one after the other.  This card uses a chipboard sticker from the previous pack of stickers, but the paper is something I found on ESTY.  I am so sorry to say I don’t remember where on ESTY:(  It was listed as Christmas paper, but it looked a little Spring like to me.  Finding Cardinal papers was almost impossible!  I do love how it turned out though! 🙂 I attached the Cardinal with glue dots.

Well, I’m off to get more done.  The grandkids will be home from school for two weeks, so I have to use my time wisely…..if that’s possible;) lol

Thanks for coming by today, I hope you’ll come again! 🙂  Be sure to check out all my links for special deals! 🙂

In case I don’t get back, please have a safe, peaceful, and very Merry Christmas!!!! 🙂

Fred She Said, Merry Monday #88, Friday Mashup #139 & Send A Smile 4 Kids

OMGoodness, I have a lot to share today!  I have three cards! 🙂  All of my images today are Fred She Said, they are having a contest with prizes!

Fred She Said is having a Christmas Party Giveaway! From Wednesday Dec. 18 until Monday Dec. 23 Midnight EST.

Come see the Fred She Said DT’s fabulous projects 🙂  Please leave a comment at the Fred She Said Blog for a chance to win one of 3 $10 Fred She Said gift certificates or post a link to a recent Christmas or Winter project  using Fred She Said products for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate 🙂

Also at the Fred She Said Facebook Page there will be an extra $10 gift certificate to giveaway.  All you have to do there is post a recipe ( or link to a recipe) of your favourite holiday recipe or treat 🙂  All details are at the Fred She Said Blog!  Check it out!! 🙂

This first card was supposed to go to Freshly Made Sketches #116.  I was too late to enter:(  So….since it fits with the theme of the Friday Mashup #139, I’m going to enter it there! 🙂

Fm139Here’s your Mashup Challenge:
Create a “Winter themed project (Non Christmas).”
Create a project using “Embossing (Dry or Heat). ”
Or Mash it Up and create a “Winter Project using Embossing.”

Half-fold Card2The image is from the Fred She Said store called Emma & the Snowball.  Isn’t she just too cute! ? I used some new paper from Stampin’ Up! called Winter Frost.  I love it!  It has two sheets with Silver accents.  I used one of the silver here, it’s kind of hard to see how shiny and beautiful it is:(  But trust me, it’s gorgeous! 🙂

Now, my next two cards use the same image from Fred She Said, but I made them up two different ways;)  One of them will be entered into Merry Monday #88 this week.

MM New Look Sketches-021

Here’s the first one

Half-fold Card3And now the second one

Half-fold Card1I love this image from Fred She Said called, Catchin’ Flakes! 🙂  All of these cards will be going into the box for Send A Smile 4 Kids!

Thanks for coming by today! 🙂  I hope to be back at least one more time before Christmas, but just in case that doesn’t work out, I’m wishing you all a very  Merry Christmas!! 🙂

Merry Monday #87, Doodle Pantry Dec. 2013 & SAS4 Kids

Wow, it’s been a long time!  Sorry for the lack of cards:(  I have actually been making cards for projects that I can’t show on my blog yet, but will be coming up soon;)

For today, I have two cards for challenges, but they will both be going into the box for Send A Smile 4 Kids🙂  My first card is for Merry Monday #87.  They have a challenge this week with mittens:)  MM New Look Sketches-020Because it’s very late here……. again, I will be adding very few details.  You can always ask for any info I don’t supply:)  So here is my first card:

Half-fold Card1The main image is from Fred She Said, Emma & the Snowball.  I have been having tons of fun with this image!  She comes ready to color or in three different colors.  This is only the first one you will see;)

My next card is for the challenge over at Doodle Pantry #41.The challenge is for the entire month of Dec., so you still have plenty of time to join in:)

Half-fold Card2Isn’t this so cute! ?  I actually requested a Winter Birthday theme from Laurie over at Doodle Pantry and I was lucky enough to have my wish granted:)

Thanks for coming by today! 🙂  I hope to be back very soon!  There is something special going on over at Fred She Said this coming week so watch for it! 🙂
