WE LOVE YOU DAWN! OFFICIAL BLOG HOP

We Love Dawn

What an honor to get to post a card in Dawns honor!
We all love Dawn and are so GRATEFUL she is improving everyday.


One of my favorite stamp sets from Dawn is Vintage lines.
The only thing I like better than the stamps is the gorgeous paper.
Nichole's Pen & Ink sentiment seemed perfect as all of us have prayed a lot for Dawn over the years!


I add the little "stamens" to 3 flowers and that is all it needs!
A card full of color for our full of color girl!

WE LOVE YOU, DAWN!!!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

I finally posted a card!!! Its been a while.
I had a HUGE project I was working on and I have had a virus. I coughed for almost 7 weeks!!!
I wasn't sick but the cough was debilitating...

I needed to come up with a design for Thanksgiving cards for my Card party open house so Dawns card was a great inspiration. 




The paper is old PTI. August Psalms and the acorns are from Give Thanks.


Hope my ladies like this one.

I used my cell phone for this picture...didn't turn out very well...

MAKE IT MONDAY #294: MONOCHROME COLOR POP

IMG_4678

Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and monochrome with a color pop.

Fun technique...


I LOVE this Mix and Mat: Pretty Brackets. It is so easy to cut it out and gives a lot of color and dimension.

I used Pinfeather ink to stencil my background with the Woodgrain Stencil.


All 3 pieces of the Mix and Mat were used with pinfeather card stock.
My color pop was White! It worked for me.



I am hoping this will be a masculine birthday card.
Brandon's birthday is the 18th.

Thank you for looking at my blog!

MAKE IT MONDAY #293: COLOR SLIDER CARDS

MIM Thinking Of You Card

-Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and a color slider card.

My oh my!!! What a challenging challenge!

I won't even tell you how long this one took!!!
I wanted an image I didn't have to color...and I had to do it twice because the first one was just too ugly...
I do not have Staz On ink, YIKES!!!
So the one I'm posting uses vellum. I just could not get away with the smearing with regular ink.

I LOVE the technique but you apparently HAVE to use Staz On...

So...here it is...
Not my best work...my image is very hard to see...





Also the line image is a bit too dark so it overshadowed the colored image...
In retrospect I could have used a purple ink on the vellum. I tried using a colored ink on the original acetate. EPIC fail. I got so frustrated, I just let it be!

Probably should have kept this one to myself... :(

Thank you for looking at my blog!

JULY 2017 BLOG HOP

Blog-hop-logo

Blog Hop Inspiration

YIKES!!!

Where did July go??? How did it get to be the 25th???

To say the least...I forgot today was Blog Hop day... :(

So after meeting a lady from Florida who heard about my card mission and wanted to buy some cards, I quickly went to make one for the hop!!!


Why do you notice things about your cards when you photograph them you don't see before...?


My buds kinda look like pink radishes when they are upside down...
I like radishes, tho!


Anyway, a broken record...it's been another busy week!
Does anyone not have a busy week???
If you don't, let me know, PLEASE!!!

Thank you for looking at my blog
