END OF THE YEAR POST

It has been a little while since I last posted so will add some of the cards I have made in the past month.
Also wanting to wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR! Since I wasn't feeling well I didn't get around to wishing everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS. Hope everyone had a great one with family and friends. We sure did even if I couldn't taste anything,lol. Feeling better today so thought I better get caught up.

Here is a card I made for my Michael Strong stamp group. I used his Silhouette panel of butterflys.
The panels are cut apart and layered on some velum but it doesn't show up under them. Next time i will either put something under them on the tag or ink the velum tag up so it shows. The butterflies are some DAZZLES, the sentiment is from the computer.



Here are a few of my CHRISTMAS CARDS I made this year.
These are all made from one card pkg that was Christmas themed that my dd got my last year.

These are embossed then i used inches to make the desgins.

That's all for tonight.

The background is from a book of old style of papers. The tag is a free download from PAPER WISHES. Then added some bakers twine and some DAZZLES.
Here is the inside of it.
I  stamped the sentiment then added some more DAZZLES above and below the sentiment. This is also a free download from PAPER WISHES. Both tags are on the same download. Both tags where popped up with dots under them.

That's all for tonight.

DOODLE PANTRY DIGITAL CHALLENGE 39

DPDC@39 This is I think my second time doing one of their challenge's. Here is a link to the site
http://doodlepantryblog.blogspot.com/. Hope it works for you, been having trouble lately with links.
The card I made is using the free digi of the snowman. He is soooooo cute. I used my cuttlebug and cut him out. He was already colored, thank goodness, but you also get one  that isn't so you can color him how you want. The little square stamp is one from a winter set and can't remember where i got it. I added some pearls and a ribbon to the card and a small line of a boarder  dazzle to where the colors are on the card, which you also get in the download.

The digi is from doddlepantry site.

A FEW NEW CARDS

Here are a few new cards. Seems like a long time since I have posted.
This is for a challenge at the MICHAEL STRONG GROUP. We had to make a card for fall. And fall to me is the leaves changing colors.The card is from WalMart in the cheap bin. It already had the cut out so I embossed some stamps leaves with red,orange and yellow, these where the colors we had to use. Added some DAZZLES under and above the window. The fall is stamped with Michael strong letter stamps and embossed with the colors that I used and saved in a container of just them. The leaf was stamped on card stock then cut out and layered on black.



A simple card with the leaf cut out and layered on some brown card stock. Added a little yellow ribbon at the top. Not sure what the name of the embossing folder is.

This one has some other leaves on it  and two of the i cut out and place on top of them to give a little deminsone to. I just need to get better at placing the stamped image on the card at more angles,lol.

That's all for tonight.

SKETCH 56 FOR THE MICHAEL STRONG GROUP

Here is my card for the MSS GROUP.  This one was kinda fun to do.  The little vase is one I won from the groups leader. Hetty and she is from the Netherlands. She makes some beautiful cards.I destressed it so it would kinda match the background paper but was a bit heavy handed on the first color,lol.
I also used some DAZZLES in the corner,and on the center banner. 

OWH SKETCH CHALLENGE 180

Here is my card for the sketch challenge at the OPERATION WRITE HOME site. This seemed like an easy one to me but as usual I had trouble,lol. Sketche's and me just don't get along, but I do try some of them with good results. Was going to make it a Christmas one but it just didn't turn out like that so hope you enjoy it.
I used some DAZZLES to add some interest to the long side and the little rectangles. The paper is from a chrismtas pack of 6 by 6 pkg. The THINKING OF YOU was from a sheet i got on line and printed out.

A COUPLE OF FATHERS DAY CARDS

Here are the father's day cards I made for my hubby and son in law.
I love this paper and all the colors in it. I think it is by colorbox. The center is a free download from PAPERWISHES. I trimmed the color off the end of it so it would match what I was doing. The happy father's day is computer made from a free download I have had for a long time. I distressed it a bit with a little brown but it is not showing since I got a little bit of a blear image here. Then I added some DAZZLES to the corners.

Same papers  and same download. I used the stars and the box for the father's day message and everything is on popdots on both cards for dimension. I added some DAZZLE STARS to the center of the stars.

CARDS FOR THE TEACHERS LUNCHOEN

I made these last month for my daughter to give to the teachers at my grandson's school. The PTO people had a luncheon for the teachers. It was a picnic like lunch. Each teacher, there where 7 of them also received a present.
This was card one. I made 7 cards but some i did doubles of and will show them also.
This is number 2 and I think i made two of these.
no.3
no.4 I think this is my favorite paper to be used. I had my dd and her vp pick the papers and I went from there in creating an easy card. All the teachers had their names on a card. I was pleased to hear that they liked the cards.
That"s it for today.

SOME NEW CARDS

Since I have gotten my blog to be nice just now I will post some of the new cards I have made over the last couple of weeks. Hope it lets me,lol.
This will go to my OWH box. The cupcake is a free download from PAPERWISHES. I added some 3d CRYSTAL LACQUER to the top of the cake to make it more denominational.


This one is for the MICHAEL STRONG YAHOO GROUP and we had to make a card of our first stamp we got, well i couldn't remember if it was this stamp or the vase one so i picked this one.

This one was for a sketch challenge at the Michael Strong group. I have so much trouble with most sketch's,lol. The stickers are from my stash, they are on the left and the paper and flowers are from a win in one of my groups monthly challenges.

This one I had made for a purple challenge but didn't get it in in time so will put it in my stash for OWH. Well that is all for tonight. At least I got this much done will have to check and see what else i may not have posted yet. Getting behind.

OUTLAWZ PAPER ALA MODE CHALLENGE

Hello again! I am going to try a new challenge at the OUTLAWZ  and it can be found here. I see the others made cards so I think you can make either a card or scrapbook page. And this one we had to use a boat. And lucky me just happened to win a challenge on one of my online groups and I received a set of stamps that are by HEIDI SWAP. My first stamps by her. So here is my card.
I used a hello stamp and added some dazzles to the corners and under the boat.

COFFEE TIME

I am going to inter this in the stamp challenge over at Lady Anne's site. You can find it here
This little stamp I got quite a while ago.
I took this picture outside and it seems even using PICASA I still ended up with some shadows in the picture. The miss you is one of GINAK DESIGN again. Love this little stamp. The cup is from a site that was called STAMP AFFAIR but has since changed its name and sorry I just can't remember it just now.
 

Butterfly card

Made this for a challenge at the  OUTLAWZ CAS. It means a clean and simple card, I enjoy making these kinds so I can send them to the troops. But you can't use any glitter and this one has a bit of glitter on it.
The butterflies are from my stash and the miss you is a GinaK design stamps set called  BOTANICAL S


The next butterfly is one I received from my yahoo group friend Valerie as I won her challenge and this one sticks on its own. But I feel it needs something else and not sure what........it will come to me later, but can't be bulky as it will go into my OWH box.
Also I took the picture of these cards outside and not sure if my  flash was working or not. Cold but sunny now.

OWH CHALLENGE

Here is my card for the OWH SKETCH CHALLENGE 171. The miss you is a stamp set from Gina K designs and the Botanical set.
I wish I would have used a solid panel in the middle......The flower is really a brown and beige instead of the purplish color that is showing up.

A MISS YOU CARD

I thought I had already posted this card but didn't so will post it now and may inter it in a couple challenge's. But I am posting it on the VCMD at the OWH and it goes to OUR DAILY BREAD site. I won't be able to post a link to it since my computer is acting slow again.
The Dazzle's are gold and so is the bird but my scanner didn't like them that color,lol. I used a border embossing plate for the strip in the center.

COLOR CHALLENGE AT THE OUTLAWZ

Going to see if I can get this one posted since my computer is giving me grief again and slowing down. This is just going to go to the outlawz site for the colors of lime green,lemon yellow and strawberry pink. And you where suppose to use a button on it also. While I had some felt buttons i had not used yet and they seem to be calling to this little card. Hope you enjoy it.
As you can see i embossed the flowers as well as the card stock. Umm now looking at it i wonder if i should have matted the colors in black....... but I kinda like it this way.
