Today's card I made using Mojo Monday sketch 110! I had fun with this one because I reached in and pulled out this designer paper and thought, "Ok, now make your card from this." So it ended up being a holiday card in a way but also a way to let someone know how thankful and blessed you are to have them in your life, which was my goal for the Sisters in Christ Challenge. It is simple and yet efficient! Thanks for stopping in today- hope to be back tomorrow!

The paper is from the Basic Grey Indian Summer pack- aren't they nice colors for the fall? I love of course that they added those pinks in there too!
So I hope that we will see you participating in the October Challenge because Kelly is so generous offering ups sweet prizes! Also free shipping for another week on orders over $30. Check out all the new High Hopes remembering that these are only available through a couple stores anymore, High Hopes is not selling them directly to the consumers and Kelly was lucky to be able to obtain them.
And have a Blessed Week!

I have finally gotten a chance to use one of my new stamps that I got from 7kids pre-order. I just love this little bear and robin by Gillian Roberts. I wanted this card to have a little vintage look to it so I did alot of weathering on it and smudging some extra ink. PLUS, see the fabric? I used some old cloth that I tea stained years ago and stamped some snowflakes on it. The paper is from my new Cosmo Cricket packs(Oh yeah, another favorite!). As always, my bear is inked in Memento tuxedo black and colored with copics!
I hope you all have a splended day!

This one is a holiday gift card holder. I wanted to make something for my niece as I almost always purchase her a card to her favorite store. This will fit into a regular sized envelope making it easy to mail as well without being too bulky.

So for these tags I used the Hero art Christmas Set, stamped it in Memento black ink and then colored with my copics, much like the cards I did in the past. But you can see how versatile these stamps are: at first I didn't think that I would use them and now I am thrilled that Julie sent them to me. I then added little rhinestones to appear as the lights on the tree. The snowflakes have tattered angel spritz on them so they sparkle nicely as well! I also used stickles on the ornament and snowman.
So- that is it for this week, I hope this gives you a little inspiration to make some tags- I LOVE making them. I think because I can make them in minutes. But have a great weekend and stop by tomorrow for more goodies!

I am working on some basic everyday cards. This card actually has a Happy Birthday Sentiment on it now! The stamp set is SU Baroque Motifs and then the CB folder flowers. I like the simplicity of the card and the black and white makes it elegant. I actually made this card a bit ago for a challenge that I entered.

Over on SCS, Scrapbox had a competition where participants could enter to win a scrapbox award, a makeover shall we say? Well one of my friends, her name is Jilanne, entered the contest. Each person got to post why they needed the makeover and then people voted for those they felt most deserving. Well Jilanne has made it to the top 10! She is so excited.......... now, if you know Jilanne, she is so deserving of this win. She is so generous (in heart, time, talents, and gift giving) she is always willing to angel a s wap and go above and beyond for her fellow crafters. She has just won the hearts of so many of us that call her friend. So I would like to ask you if you would be willing to go and cast a vote for Jilanne? It won't take but a moment of your time......... and it will make such an impact on her. Please..........please, I would love to be able to say that I helped her win. And thank you so much for considering this request. Here is the link:

Details for the box:
12 x 7 1/2 piece of cardstock
Length wise you score at 1/2, 4 1/2, 6, 10, and 11 1/2
Width wise you score at 1 1/2 and 5 1/2
Then you will cut the outside score lines at the 4 1/2 and 6 inch and then the 10 and 11 1/2
Once you have creased all your score lines adhere the 1/2 in score inward. Then assemble the box.
Reminder: there is a attached lid to the box. The flaps that are actually between the 10in and 11 1/2 in score I cut them and wrapped the outside flap around it so that it was a clean box top.
I hope this helps! And have a great day!

Today's card is one that I colored a couple of weeks ago when I was working on some shading and I thought I better use it before the end of summer or at least the feeling of summer is gone. I had used alot of earth tones so I went to my basic greys and found this paper which I thought looked earthy and masculine. I also got to use my newest nestabilities as well! I love it. I know that Kelly still has a few of these Magnolia stamps left so don't miss out on getting him.
Kelly also has brand new Basic Grey stamps coming in HERE.
She is also pre-ordering High Hopes and there are only a few stores ordering Here
Also, Kelly will be doing a DT call soon- so watch if you are interested!
Stamp: Magnolia Edwin on bike
Ink: Momento Black tuxedo, copics
Paper: Basic grey Porcelain
Misc: nestabilities label four
