Shower Invite


Shower Invite - It is time for a new challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity and this time we want to see all your creepy crawly critters. That's right bugs!! So where is my bug. Well my bug is not so creepy crawly. A butterfly is a bug too!

My card is an invitation to a bridal shower that I am giving for my grandson's teacher. She is new to our school and we are so very happy for her.

She gave me full freedom to do what ever I wanted. The only clue that she gave me was that she liked fall colors. 

I typed the information and printed it from my computer, then cut it with a SB. After cutting the information, I masked off the center and used 3d paint around the edges. That was followed by popping it up on a dry embossed backing.

I tied a tiny bow using my Bow Easy.


The butterfly is a MS punch, then again used the 3d stamp paint on the edges. I twisted the wire around a small dowel and finished off the butterfly with 3 tiny pearls.

Harvest Pumpkin


Harvest Pumpkin - I have a simple card for my DT project for this weeks Crafts 4 Eternity challenge. Can you guess our challenge? It is harvest! Isn't that fun!

My DP's are K & Company's Halloween Specialty paper pad. The green was a scrap from some long ago project. All papers were distressed with Gathered Twigs distress ink.

The pumpkin was cut with my Cricut and the Freshly Picked cartridge.


The sentiment is SU stamped and punched with SU punches.


I finished off the card with a twine bow tied around the stem of the pumpkin.

Hallowed Witch


Hallowed witch - We are looking for your Halloween projects this fortnight at The Sweet Pea Stampers. 


My image is a Sweet Pea stamp that has been discontinued. I love this image, but don't lose out on getting your favorite images. Check out the Sweet Pea Stamps and select your "Got to Have" images now!

I colored her with Copics and added lots of Stickles to her dress and hat.



My sentiment is from Digi's With Attitude, but they are no longer around. This seems to be the card, that everything is discontinued on. 

The purple sentiment is SU. I hope that one is still around, but it may not be.


I finished off the card with some sparkly bats, a tulle bow and a stick pen.

Mad Scientist


Mad Scientist - It is time for another challenge at Creative Card Crew. This fortnight our challenge is to use BLACK card stock. Fun, right!! So come and join us. While my card is fun and halloweenish, some of my team mates went no spooky at all. We even had one that was Christmas. How is that for creativity!


My image is Delicious Doodles, Halloweenie Crazy Chemist! Isn't he a hoot? Teri Sherman has the best Halloween images. Most are horror, but she did a lot of these, not so spooky, characters too.

I colored him with Copics, then fussy cut him and added some Diamond Glass to his chemistry tube and bottle.


My DP is K and Company's Halloween Specialty pad. I ran it through my Zutter distrezz machine to rough up the paper. 

My trim is cheese cloth that was wrapped with a bumpy yarn.


The glittery bats were something that I found in a craft clearance. It did not have a label, so I have no idea as to who made it.

Baby Penguin


Baby Penguin - Hi friends. It is time for a new sketch challenge at Seems a Little Sketchy!!! This is an easy and fun one!!! 


I have a hard time using a sketch, if I want to make a fancy fold card, so when I create the sketches for us at Seems a Little Sketchy, I have been trying to make some that would be good for a multi-fold card. 

For this this one, I made a sunken frame card. It is hard to see in the photo, but the main image is sunken. This is a really easy card to make, but it makes a big impact on the receiver. I just center the image, then trace around it. I then draw a big X through that tracing and cut on the X lines. The only other thing you have to do, is to score around the frame and give a back to it, to cover up the big X. You will loose about 1/2 an inch so it really does need the back.



This challenge is sponsored by the fabulous Aurora Wings. All of Mitzi's images are just gorgeous! This is one of her more simplistic images. Her mermaids are particularly beautiful, with lots of stunning detail.

This image is baby Penguin. I colored him with Copics, then stamped some snowflakes with a glue pad and added some really fine glitter.


My sentiment is Inkadinkado stamped with red. I scattered some blue gemstones around the card base.
