Crate and Barrel Providence Print
I freehand watercolored it using Peerless Watercolors and changed up the colors a bit. I matted in gray and popped it up. Used Memory Box DP on the inside and punched my swirl for the envelope with an EK Success Punch. I hope you like it! Thanks for looking and have a safe and happy holiday weekend!

QFTD11 Challenge 5/28

Hi! This is the card I did for our Queen for the Day and this week the spinner landed on Scrappigramma2 aka Grace!!! Wahoo!! I simply cannot believe you have not been FS yet!!! Your gallery is simply amazing and your talent is outstanding!!! And you are such a sweet person as well!!! I did not base my card on any particular card of yours Grace...your cards are so intricate I felt I would not come close to your expertise. So instead I did a card I thought you may like from what I have seen in your gallery. See her great gallery here.
Grace`s Gallery
Look for it to arrive soon! I chose another Penny Black image and watercolored it. I matted and popped it up on a panel that had been embossed partly witha new SU Sizzix Folder. The word hello is from PTI and the butterfly on the inside and envelope is from HA. I also used a border punch from SU on the inside. Added my treasured tiny gems from Peggy and was done! Congrats Grace!!!!!!!!!!! Just know you have to wear that heavy crown all day!! I hope it does not give you a headache! LOL I am so glad we are honoring you today!! Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day everyone!! Hugs to you all!!
Aloha Sis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Double Challenge Card 5/28

Hi! I did this card for today`s Free 4 All challenge brought to us by Dawn. You can read about it here.

We were to be inspired by a collection of ours...not craft/stamp related. Well I collect cranberry glass but did not have an appropriate stamp for that. So then it hit me that the card I just did for the Way to Use It challenge was also perfect for this challenge so if you would like to see it is the post below this one. I too love birds, nature, and flowers. So anything related to that including birdhouses and flowers was perfect! Thought these would make a nice set of could always add a sentiment inside. I wanted the focus on the picture so the only embellishment I used on this card as well were the doodads from Anne Ryan that I used inside and on the envelope. I watercolored, matted in black, and popped the image up. Hope you are not getting sick of these Penny Black stamps but when I ran across that box with wins from ebay I just can`t stop using them! I just love them and hope you do too. Thanks for looking and have a safe and happy holiday weekend! Our son and his wife will be coming so I am a happy gal!! And yes...I am up late again!
AHOY SIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I watercolored with real paints. The cute image is from Penny Black. I cut out using a Circle Nestie and sponged my sky and ground. I then popped it up. I tore my Memory Box DP with a deckled ruler and used half on the front of the card and half on the inside. I used a strip on my envelope as well. I added tiny gems from Peggy (thanks again gf!) for her buttons and as an accent on the circle. My butterfly is a SU Sizzix Cut and Emboss Die. I stamped just a note from Memory Box. Thanks for looking and have a great day! I want to do another but have to do some weeding first!

I think I have rubber left knee and right wrist and ankle have swelled up and bruised and I bet I will be sore tomorrow but it could have been much worse. I think I scared 10 years off my dh!

Featured Stamper 5/23

Hi! I did this card today for the Featured Stamper challenge. Read about it here.
FS172 Challenge

It is Nikki!! Yay! You rock girl!! You have a lovely gallery. It was hard to pick one but I finally decided on this card.
Nikki`s Card
I really liked the soft subtle coloring. I changed the orientation of my card, changed the colors, and used a candy dot rather than use ribbon. I kept the tree theme but changed mine to a fall landscape. I think this card could even be ok for a guy. I sketched my tree placement and watercolored with different size brushes and Peerless Watercolors. Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day! Enjoy your deserved week in the spotlight Nikki!

Amy Atlas Events
Read about it here.
IC233 Challenge

I did not even move past the first page for my inspiration as I have so been loving yellow right now. And combined with black and a slight bit of orange I knew what I wanted to do. The 2nd challenge is for this week`s Flutterby Wednesday where Kris has challenged us to use a flower with our butterfly, angel, or fairy. My stamp is from Impressions Obsession and I colored it with Copic Markers and used the Dimple Punch on the corners and added tiny gemstones. I mounted it on black cs and my next layer was Core`dinations yellow to give some texture. I added a seam binding bow with a clear button and twine. I left a sentiment off until I know what I am using it for. The inside top corner is punched with a MS punch. Thanks for looking and have a fabulous Saturday!

Double Challenge Card 5/19

Hi! This is a double challenge card. First it is for today`s sketch challenge brought to us by Roxie based on a card by Sparklegirl, who is amazing I might add! Read about it here.
SC281 Challenge

I tried to get an oval sentiment on the card but I don`t have any printer ink (ran out awhile ago and I need to replace it!) because I thought of using a computer generated sentiment. So had to go to Plan B and I used a sailboat charm in place of the oval. Boy...the challenge police may be after me this week! I sketched my image and used Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol to color. I used Core`dinations CS for my panel and on the inside of my card and envelope. I sanded and distressed and added twine and the charm. Added a few silver pearls and was done. The second challenge is for Teapot Tuesday. Barbarar20 is our gracious hostess this week. Thanks for filling in! Great story line this week! Read all about it here.
I am heading over to the lighthouse with a sailboat to help Seth with whatever he needs! Thanks for looking and have a fabulous Wednesday! If you see the time I am posting...yes it is a sleepless night. LOL So may as well stamp!

I kept the same number of layers but changed the image, distressed mine, and added an embossed border at the bottom rather than a sentiment. The envelope is embossed as well. I also added pearls rather than a butterfly. The inside has a HA flower in the corner and the sentiment from Whipper Snapper reads ~ I hope you will be back in full bloom soon!
It also qualifies for today`s CAS challenge to do Shabby Chic. Read about this challenge here.

SC280 Challenge
Fun sketch...a bit challenging for me. But after I decided to make a Father`s Day card for my dh I had no problem! My layers are all Archaic Basic Grey DP mounted on PTI CS. My base is Kraft.

Sweet Vicki Dutcher!! 3/12

Hi Peeps! Well, I got up this morning to a pleasant surprise! Sweet Vicki Dutcher had passed on a Beautiful Blogger Award to me! I so admire Vicki as a person, crafter, and am proud to call her my friend! Please stop by her blog, All I Do Is Stamp , but make certain you have plenty of time to be inspired by all her fabulous creations! Thank you Vicki! You are a gem.
I am now supposed to pass on a few things about myself. Well most of you already know common things about me so these are things you may not know.
I love all things pink and girly although I am more of a tomboy myself. I love changing my hair color, getting my nails done, and got a rose tattoo on my leg at the age of 51!
I love puppy breath, the beach, a good book, Bon Jovi, lobster, oysters on the halfshell, sushi, and a bloody steak.
I love cranberry glass, red lobster suckers that you get at Cape Cod, and Real Maple Candy that come in a box and are in the shapes of leaves.
 I love my BMW, the smell of my sheets after hanging outside, and Windows 7 because I am a PC and Windows 7 was my idea. :-)
And now I get the honor of passing this fun award on to two fellow bloggers who do indeed have beautiful blogs and have been so supportive of my blog! Michelle Joy Wecksler and Lorraine Mastalski. Please visit these two special people and be delighted with their creative blogs! Visit Michelle at Figments of My Imagination and Lorraine at Paper Vernissage You two can just grab your award off my sidebar.
May try to fit a card in later today...if not I will be back tomorrow!

Double Challenge Card 5/11 Hero Arts

Hi! This is a double challenge card. 1st challenge is today`s Color Challenge which was to use Melon Mambo, Soft Suede, Neutrals and the dessert option was wood. Read about it here.
CC270 Challenge

I thought my embossed bg resembled wood paneling. The 2nd challenge is Teaparty Tuesday. Read about it here.
MMTPT93 Challenge
We are off to the Bat Cave and I brought along these poppies to pretty it up and have it smell good.I stamped this Hero Arts image with HA Chalk Ink and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. I then stamped with brown Memento Ink on white cs and colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol then cut the blooms out and popped them up. The inside has SU DP and I used a SU Border Punch. I tied twine around my main panel. The envelope is stamped with another poppy from HA. I got this idea from the HA blog. Thanks for looking and have a fabulous day! It is dark and dreary here today (although I am not complaining as we need rain) but it made it very difficult to photograph. That is why I have included 2 photos. One is too dark ...the other too light! Thanks for stopping by! I hope you like it!

Hi! This is a double challenge card.1st challenge is the Inspiration Challenge. Thanks for filling in again Anne! Cool site called Huset which means the house in Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian! Read about it here.
IC231 Challenge

I was inspired by rather than replicating this week. I chose this platter which can be seen here.
My Inspiration Piece

QFTD08 Challenge
 I finally chose this card.
Lynn`s Card
I love the simplicity. I thought my card or Lynn`s would be perfect for a set of notecards. I just stamped my Hero Art`s butterfly and added one silver pearl. Knotted some SU Gingham ribbon and attached and on the inside glued a line of ribbon down. Added a PTI sentiment and stamped my envelope with a flower from the same HA set. Thanks for peeking and have a fabulous day...hopefully with those you love!

Triple Challenge Card 5/6 Hero Arts

Hi! This is a triple challenge card. The 1st challenge is yesterday`s Sketch Challenge brought to us by Roxie. Read about it here.
SC279 Challenge
The 2nd is Flutter by Wednesday 108 which you can read all about here.
FBW108 Challenge
The 3rd is today`s Way to Use It Challenge ~ Which was to use pins. Read about it here.
WT269 Challenge
 I opted for a Tim Holtz Safety Pin to hold my Gingham Ribbon and my Sentiment tag. I am disappointed in the colors of the is not a true orange it is more a golden color. The new Butterfly Garden stamp from Hero Arts was stamped half and half with HA Chalk Inks and then I splattered a bit. These colors match a line of Layering Papers from Hero Arts called Hero Hues. That is what I used for my layers. Inside I used a EX Success Corner Punch and on the envelope I stamped. Sat on my hands as I wanted another CAS card. Thanks for looking and have a fabulous day!
Danny is home (which tells me he is feeling worse than lousy!) and went for an xray yesterday to see if he had pneumonia. We never did hear back and he returns to the doctor tomorrow so we will see. I need to get him better!!!

Double Challenge Card 5/4

Hi! Well this is a double challenge card which has not been uploaded to SCS yet as they have asked us to not upload anything while they try to get the dreaded red x problem solved. I suppose those who are uploading have not seen the message posted on the homepage and under Site Suggestions and Questions. First this card is for the Color Challenge which was to use Cameo Coral, Gable Green, and Lovely Lilac. I did not use the dessert option of using clear cs. Read about it here.
CC269 Challenge
 I first stamped La Lettre from Hero Arts with Distressed Ink and sponged some on as well. I then overstamped the HA Wildflowers using SU Markers Direct to Stamp and spritzing with water. I then just made 3 tabs with todays colors using the SU Word Window Punch and added one white Candy Dot. Inside I used Basic Grey Green at Heart DP and punched the opposite corners with a MS Corner Punch. I stamped the envelope with just one of the flowers. It is also for todays Teaparty Tuesday where things are disappearing! My memory must have left me as I did use a bit of Bermuda Bay on my flowers. So I hope the challenge police don`t come after me for I did not do this 42,000 times but once. Read about it here.
So I guess that is about it for today! Hoping things return to normal at SCS...think we have all become reliant on the site so it feels strange to not upload there! Have a wonderful day!

Triple Challenge Card 5/3

Hi! This is a simple Triple Challenge card today. The first challenge is yesterday`s Featured Stamper and she is Eliotstamps aka Michelle. You can read about it here.
FS169 Challenge

I was not that familiar with her work so had lots of fun going through her sweet gallery. Love her style! Congrats to you Michelle! I finally chose this recent card to case.
Michelle`s Card
I changed the orientation of my card. Rather than using a dp I embossed vellum. I changed the colors and rather than a stamped circle I used a Prima Aqua Flower. Enjoy your week Michelle!
The second challenge is today`s Technique Challenge which was to emboss vellum. The bonus was to make a Mother`s Day card. We no longer have a mom,mil, or Godmother in our lives so just did this in their honor. Love you mom! Not a day goes by that I don`t think of you. You can read about it here.
TLC271 Challenge
The third challenge is today`s Clean and Simple challenge which was to use May Day Flowers or Mother`s Day as our theme. So I used both actually. My mom could not see so I tried to make cards with texture that she could feel. This embossing with the satin ribbon, rose, and rhinestones fit the bill I thought. The envelope is embossed as well though hard to see in the photo. I hope she knows it was made with love. Read about it here.
CAS65 Challenge
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!
