Muse Challenge No126

I decided to play along with the Muse Challenge again this week.....I just loved how Tracey did the stenciling in the background....I couldn't find a stencil I wanted to use so I used some snow flake stamps that didn't have a whole lot of ink on them....I really like how this one turned out!






Here's this week's Muse: Tracey McNeely
isn't it the cutest thing!

Muse Challenge #125

I am playing along this week with Muse Card club... I loved Anita's card, the flower stamp is just so darn cute....its pretty obvious I took inspiration from her whole card....I truly didn't realize how close they were until I was making this post :( I'm suppose to take inspiration from the card not copy it!
But I really liked it...I just added more color and different flowers!


 Here's this week's Muse: Anita Bowde

 I swear I'll get the hang of this!

Dt Reveal wk 2 July Lets Get Sketchy

Happy Monday!!! I could not wait to scrap this picture my hubby sent me from the road...he was traveling from Oregon back to Wisconsin last month....he sent me a message "Brutal traffic in Montana.... I will say that Montana looks much better during the daylight hours... Lol" he takes this same trip at least twice a year and every single time he hits Montana in the middle of the night until now...he said the whole time he was in Montana he passed like five other vehicles!
Anyway as you know Mondays mean a new sketch from Lets Get Sketchy and here is my take on this weeks sketch!





Hope you'll stop on by Lets Get Sketchy  and play along with us!

Scrap Africa no.55

Oh there's a new challenge over at Scrap Africa Challenge no.55 - July Mood Board ......first thought was my wood grain papers (that I might have been hoarding I just love them!) I wanted to pull the wood and the colors from the mood board and make a pretty card that had a country feel to it...I think I did a pretty good job getting my idea to the paper!


 I had these cute little wood flower embellishments from Prima,called Natural bark shapes...I added them under the twine...

Artastic July

I just wanted to share a quick card I made for the ARTastic challenge CRITERIA is to use water (liquid) in some way on your project...
I decided to create my card background using watercolors...I really love the colors in the painting so I tried to recreate them...it really didn't have the effect I saw in my head but it worked for a bit of a gloomy background so all wasn't lost!
I took inspiration from the umbrellas and the colors of the  painting!

CAS(E) this Sketch No131

Good evening my crafty friends....I just wanted to share a quick card I made using the new sketch from
CAS(E) this Sketch #131 I love this sketch! I pulled out some cute stamps that have just been sitting around...there's some fruit and a bunch of trees...I have no clue where they came from or who made them (hand me downs) I never really use them because they don't seem to cover evenly no matter why type of ink I use but I thought that might work in my favor what this type of card....
I really like how it turned out!

Muse Challenge No123

This is the first time I've ever played the challenge over at Muse....but I thought I would give it a shot!
 I took inspiration from the cherries and the grid pattern here is my take.....

I couldn't find any grid type paper in my stash so I took plain black card stock and used my Silhouette portrait and the sketch pens to make the grid pattern..I know my grid isn't perfect but that's kind of what I like about it...I also cut the sweet sentiment and the cherries using my silhouette! I love that machine! LOL

 the Muse card for this challenge is from Joan Bardee
this is such a pretty card and so perfect for summer....

Watercolor Cards

I was in the mood to make a mess so I spread out a couple plain white (heavy weight) cardstock on my table (cut to fit the front of a card) pulled out of random water colors and just splattered them all over...once I was happy with the amount of splattered I misted with water just a little so it spread out....I let dry....yes I got impatient and pulled out the heat gun but the papers curled :( I really hate that LOL


 when it was dry....enough lol I used distress ink and what ever odd stamps I had on my desk and randomly stamped.....lightly misted again.....not much.....
when they were dry I added a sentiment and some ribbon/lace and mounted them to a piece of cardstock then mounted to my card base.....I am loving how they turned out!

OLS18 Sparkle and Shine

One Layer Simplicity Challenge....here is my take on their Sparkle and shine challenge...I've had this little wheel of Gems for quite some time now (one of my thrift store finds) and this was the perfect time to bust them out....
I used a tear drop shape for the leaves and a round gem for the flower center!
