Corrosive Challenge #136 With A Flourish!

My card this week for the Corrosive Challenge, With A Flourish is a Hanglar Stanglar image. The flourish is cut with a Magnolia Die. It is my favorite of all the flourish dies out there. She was a lot of fun to color. I have one more Halloween card to finish after church tomorrow and I will be finished with Halloween cards this year.

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday.

New Sweet Tilda

I made this card because I couldn't wait to use my new Magnolias from the Sweet Christmas dreams collection. This card is for the my book club, Bookendz. I hope more of you will enter a card because there are really good prizes and it is a fun thing to do and I also hope more of you will join our Bookendz Book Club. We get our new book Nov. 1 at the discussion of the October book. Suzanne Dean has organized the entire thing and she is so much fun.

Fall Tilda!

I've got a cute Tilda to enter in a few challenges. I thought this was one of the cutest Tilda's until I saw the Sweet Christmas Dreams collection. There is some real cuties in it. My favorite is the Tilda holding the snow heart and do I have it, NO! I got the Fall kit and 5 other I ordered but forgot to order that one so will have to wait awhile to order. I spent too much money in Oct. on them.

Thank you SS!

These cards are some more that I've made with my SS package. I've already put 3 or 4 on here that I made with it and so far I have made 9 cards out of the images and goodies that were in my Sept. kit. SS thanks so much for all the great goodies I recieved and giving me so many fun images to work with for all my Great grandkids. You are a wonderful SS.

We got home late yesterday from our Family reunion. We had lots of fun and really enjoyed visiting with everyone.

Wishing my Granddaughter Nickie a Happy Birthday.

For Steve!

This is my son's birthday card. His birthday isn't until Nov. 8 but wanted to make sure I had his card finished. The one below was my Grandson Travis's birthday card. His birthday is already passed, it was Oct. 1st.

I am in a motel in Durant, OK. We are getting ready to go meet the rest of our family for a family reunion. We are going to our Nephew's house to spend the day just visiting and sharing photos etc. Everyone is taking cameras and computers and copying everyone's photos so I need to get off of here and pack this computer.

Have a great weekend.

My Birthday!

Wow! I have had a fabulous birthday today. I received so many birthday wishes from friends and family that I feel very special. Thank you everyone!

I have another Halloween card. This one was for Riley who happened to see it and ask for it. She said she loved it, and would really take good care of it if I let her have it so I did. She is one of my Greats and is 8 yrs. old.

I just have a few more cards to finish and I will be through for another year.
Thanks for stopping by today!

More Halloween Cards!

These two cards and many more that I have made came from my September SS package that she sent me several weeks ago. It was a pretty awesome package filled with goodies that I love to use, rhinestones, felt clouds, beautiful ribbons, darling stamp and lots of fun images. Will have more on my blog next week.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Spiders & Pumpkins!

This is another Halloween card for one of my Granddaughters or Greats. I guess you can tell that I love Magnolias. I have a minimum of 36 Halloween cards to get made and some in the mail, but most I can hand out to the kids.

Hope you are having some beautiful fall weather. We are until Sunday and it is supposed to be 85 degrees and then on Tuesday a cold front is coming in and they say it could be as low as 35 on tuesday morning and then warm up to the 50's. I was hoping for lots of good fall weather, but looks like that is wishful thinking.

I'll have more Halloween cards to post by Friday.

I'm entering this in a few challenges.

ABC Christmas Challenge Blog!

Hi everyone! I won a GD spot from Feline Playful's blog hop. The spot I won GD is for ABC Christmas Challenge Blog on their challenge blog today. The challenge is U for Unused Stash! The sponsor's this week are Bugaboo Digi Stamps. I recieved this cute image to use on my card. The name of this image is Cupcake Christmas lights. They have so many cute images to choose from. Another sponsor is Simon Says Stamp which is an awesome store. If you have never visited them you really should go check them out. Here is a little about the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog:Welcome to the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog,
Our Challenge is to help you prepare for the coming Christmas, It seems to be a common problem that Christmas creeps up on us every year! Challenges are fortnightly and are Themed, if you join every challenge from A to Z you will have create at least 25 cards in time for Christmas 2011.

Now the challenge was to use UNUSED items from our stash. I used this Basic Grey Nordic Holiday which was still unused, this ribbon was still unused and this package of sparkly snowflakes had never been used.

and finally: My card!

It was a lot of fun being a GD for ABC Christmas Challenge Blog! I had fun making the card and I learned a few things about each of the sponsors and their products. I certainly hope I did everything I was supposed to and got the UK time right. Thanks for the opportunity to do this, Feeline Playful.

Catching Snowflakes!

Hello my friends. I hope you all had an awesome weekend. I had a good weekend, good weather and good visits with my Grandchildren and Great Granddaughter Madison(Maddie). This card may be her Christmas card, not sure yet. This is a darling image, of course I think all the images at LOTV are precious.

I have been making Halloween cards for all the Grandchildren. I'll be posting some of them from Wednesday on. I have a guest design team spot tomorrow that I won from Feline Playful so I will be posting that card tomorrow.

Open and closed double Z fold card. I hope I did it right, not sure but anyway I tried. It was fun to make. It is the last Outlawz challenge I will probably have time to make. I wish I could have done more of their challenges. They were fun and forced me to do somethings a little different from my normal.

Fall Birthday card for a Good Friend

This card is my first attempt at using flower soft. I see some places I need to touch up. I saw the flower soft used on the mum on a card at Suzanne Dean's blog and wanted to try it. Of course it doesn't look anything like hers did.

Hope you are all having a great day. I have a Dr. apt. so need to get off of here.

Happy Birthday Megan!

This card was made for my Granddaughter Megan. Her Birthday is Oct. 15. She is the Mother of Jacen and Jevin. I was trying to color with copics looking like distress inks. I watched Suzanne's videos and gave it a try. I see lots of mistakes but it was my first try. I will keep practicing. The important thing is Megan will like it. I distressed the edges of the paper with a distressing tool and sponged the edges of the paper.

I have a lot to do today, have to go to the grocery store. Need lots of fresh veggies. My DH went on insulin today so need to get some healthy foods in the house. I am hoping he will stick to his diet and I am going to go on his diet with him. I need to eat better too.

Have a great day everyone!

CMC Challenge: vintage or color to look like distressed inks

Corrosive Challenge #134-Purple Passion

I used this cute little bat from Doodle Pantry for my card. I thought he was really cute and I knew one of my little Grandsons would like to have him for a Halloween card. Wow! You all really liked the punches or dies from the last challenge. The last time I checked there was 306 entries. Way to go!!

I am going to clean the house a little today. My hubby comes home tomorrow after being in Houston for a week watching the Grandkids. Hoping you have a great Sunday.
