Elliott & Marcel Hugs - Purple Onion

 

Hi there and I hope all is well with you.  We had a bit of snow but it didn't last long and is gone now, thank goodness.  It's cold though, you definitely need a winter jacket.
Today's card uses the sweet image from Purple Onion called Elliot & Marcel Hugs.  I immediately wanted this stamp when I saw it plus I got two more by the same artist.  
For whatever reason, I never seem to have thank you cards on hand so decided to make this into one so I quickly did up a sentiment with my computer.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Sweet Pea - Sandra Caldwell

Hello and I hope all is well with you.  It's good here but like everyone else, I want 2020 to be over and begin 2021 which I am hopeful will come with many positive changes.
This image is Sandra Caldwell's Dizzy Gal and it's a card I did over a year ago but for whatever reason didn't get around to posting it.  I have a couple of friends (hmmm... will have to decide which one to give it to) that would think this card and sentiment will be a hoot.

Believe in Fairies - Three Room Studio Challenge


Hi there and I hope all is well.  It's good here but definitely fall.  A few trees have lost all the leaves and it's very cool and crisp in the mornings.
Today's card is for our latest challenge at Three Room Studio and this week's theme is CAS and the challenge host is Pam.
The sentiment and butterflies are from the Believe in Fairies.  I used embossing tinsel and an ancient Stampin' Up stamp to create the background and two sizes of circle dies for the circular frame.
The challenges are now hosted on the Three Room Studio blog and although there are rules, they are simple and easy to follow so I encourage you to join in.
Be sure to check out the Three Room Studio shop to have a look at the stamp sets, to the Three Room Studio blog, the design team blogs and Instagram.

The Way You Move - Stampingbella


 I've been going through my card box and have found some cards which I have never posted and this is one of them.  hahahha... it's so old the stamp is no longer made.  It's a Diane Duda stamp which was made by Stampingbella and called The Way You Move.  I like the whimsical and primitive nature of these stamps so it's something different from me.  I had pieced the dress and buds from the stamped flowers from a piece of My Mind's Eye Sunshine paper and then added some flowers cut from CC Designs 5 point flower die.  
Thanks for stopping by!

Hooray for Today - Diane Duda

 

Hi there and I hope you are keeping well.  Here is another card which has been in the pile forever and not posted.  I won't be setting cards aside like that anymore because I've got three to post and the stamps are out of print for all of them!  Today's card is Diane Duda's Hooray.  I can't find it in the shop but here is her Etsy digi stamp store and there's plenty of gorgeous images in it.  I like the style of these stamps and have a few more I should get busy and use.
The flower dies are Poppy Stamps Stitched BloomTrio.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Party 2 -CraftEmotion

 

I discovered a new for me brand of stamps and I just love those bug eyed little creatures, so fun!  They are CraftEmotions and I ordered them from Nellie Snellen in the Netherlands.  I wanted 5 sets desperately and the shop is so accommodating with reasonable prices and more than fair shipping charges.  Bonus... it took only 7 days for it to arrive from the Netherlands to Canada so I'm very impressed with their service.  This set is Party 2 and has some silly big eyed animals plus sentiments.
I dug out my Memory Box Honeycomb Stitched Circle which I've had forever but never used and cut it out of glittery black paper.  The sentiment is Elizabeth Craft Designs and also cut out of the glitter paper.  I just knew I had some bee paper in my stash and sure enough, a package of Close to My Heart paper was in the drawer... brand new and unopened!
Stay well and thanks for stopping by.

It's a Ponderful Life - Three Room Studio Challenge


 Hi there and I hope all is well with you land yours.
Today's card is for our latest challenge at Three Room Studio and this week's theme is Birthday and the challenge host is Kevin Bray.  Easy peasy because we all need birthday cards and for me, the majority of cards I make and send are for birthdays.
I kept my card fairly simple and sponged in a background of Tim Holtz's Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans distress inks and splashed it with some large water drops.  The sentiment and butterflies are from the Believe in Fairies set and the lily pad, frog and cattails from It's a Ponderful Life.
The are now hosted on the Three Room Studio blog and although there are rules, they are simple and easy to follow so I encourage you to join in.
Be sure to check out the Three Room Studio shop to have a look at the stamp sets, to the Three Room Studio blog, the design team blogs and Instagram

New Home

 

Hello and I hope all is well with you.  It's good here but definitely fall weather with it being a little cooler and the leaves on the trees are quickly changing colour. 
Today's card was made for someone who has purchased a new home so I sent this along with the housewarming gift I had made.  The cute little mushroom house is a digi from Pink Petticoat but they no longer sell under that name.  She now makes her images available under The Lovely Studio.   I have so many of her images and am very glad I got them when I did because she doesn't have them all listed in the new shop.
Thanks for stopping by, take care and have a great week!
