Trick or Treat!!!

I was in the mood for making another Halloween card tonight. They are so fun. The designer paper sure make things alot easier as I said before and this layout has helped me alot too. I am not a person who is good with colors but at least with Halloween you know what colors to use.

This card I used my Autumn Apparitions Set from Su and also some $1.50 stamps from Michael's. They come in handy so often. I also used some die dimensions that I got from Michael's also. They are by K & Company. They come in such a big package that I think it will take years to use them up. The ribbon I got at the $1.50 bin at Michael's also. I bought a few of them.

Well I am off to bed.

Got some new stamps in the mail today so you will probably see something else new tomorrow.

Good night

See you later.

Happy Halloween!

I bought this designer paper awhile back and just couldn't figure out a way to use it that I was pleased with until I saw this pattern on Splitcoast the other day. I decided I like it so much that I was going to copy it. I think it is so cute and I love the layout. It came together so quickly. Patterned paper makes things so easy to do.

What do you think??

Have a great day :-)

Another Thomas Kinkade

I am having alot of fun with these new stamps from Thomas Kinkade. They are just georgeous images. I bought two but I was just telling my dh this evening that I think that I am going to have to buy more.

This one I stamped with SU Night of Navy on SU Whisper White and then colored in certain parts with my Primsacolor Pencils and Taltine. Then I applied some two way glue and added some gazzling diamonds. I am very pleased with how this turned out and I don't think that it is the last of these that you will be seeing.

Have a great weekend :-)

Card Sketch SC147

I have wanted to get a chance to do the weekly card sketch that is on Splitcoast for awhile now but for one reason or another I just never got to it. I started this card last night and finally got a chance to finish it tonight. I bought this stamp for Thanksgiving and had this image already colored but could never figure what layout to use in it and when I saw this one on Wednesday I knew that I would finally get a chance to use it.

I colored the image with my primsacolor pencils and used my taltine with stumps to color it with. I love the effect the create. The colors are so vibrant. I also got a chance to use my faithful cuttlebug. I just love that thing. There are so many things that you can do with it.

I am pleased with how this turned out so now it is time for you to tell me what you think.

Good night
Sleep Tight

See you later

Happy Birthday Everett!

This is a card that I made for my hubby for his birthday today. I really never thought that it would take so long so I came home from work and had hoped to have it done before supper so that I could give it to him and boy was I wrong. My poor hubby had to go to work this evening and work all night for 12 hours without even having a card from me for his birthday today. I felt so bad but I had to wait till he was gone to work to get back to doing this card. I found this pattern on splitcoast. It was just what I was looking for. My hubby is always fixing something around the house and if he is not doing things around our house then he is busy helping out someone in my family. What a guy he is! Gotta love him.

Tomorrow morning when he gets home I will give him the card. I told him that I was working on his card when I spoke with him this evening at work and he was fine with that. He knows that he always gets a special card for occasions now. I must say that he does appreciate them too. He has the cards that I gave him on the wall in our rec room.

I can't wait to see his face in the morning when he sees this. I have had those tools for years now and have always intended to make something for him out of them. There are three more yet so I will have to make something else out of them for another occasion.

Happy Birthday Ev! See you tomorrow morning! Loves ya!

I am heading off to bed now.

Have a great evening and see you soon!

Take care

Thomas Kinkade

Finally got my Thomas Kinkade Stamps Silent Night and Village Christmas. From the first time I saw these I knew that I just had to have them.

These were only simple to do but I think they are quite elegant. They remind me of some old fashion dishes that my parents used to have. I particularly like the ones done in Navy.

What do you think???
Stamp Camp Christmas Card

We made this card at Stamp Camp last Wednesday night. It was so much fun to make. It was done with a technique called criss-cross card. It is not that hard to make. We had alot of fun making it. We used SU designer paper and it co-ordinates great. I will definately be making more of these for sure. There are five different punches used in making this card.

What do you think?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Another contribultion to World Card Day. I am having fun with this. This Sunday is Thanksgiving in Canada and this year for the first time I am having my whole family over for dinner. All 14 of them. Yikes... Hope I can handle it. I am not used to cooking for that many. Looking forward to it though. Anyway, after rambling off on the dinner I forgot to say that I wanted to make something to put on the table that I made and somehow it turned into a card. I never intended that but just went with it. I am pleased though with how it turned out.

This is a set called Thoroughly Thankful and I have had it for awhile but never got around to using it until today. I colored it with the faithful Primsacolor Pencils and Tantine with stumps. That always works out well.

Tell me what you think.

Have a nice evening and Happy Thanksgiving.
Happy World Card Making Day!!

Today is World Card Making Day so I decided when I got up seeing that our time was so much ahead of everybody else's that I would make a Halloween Card. I am going to try and sell a few of them this year. I have been stamping for over two years now and have never bought any Halloween Cards.

I think this set is so sweet. I just had to try and make something with it.

I am not completely satisfied with this one but it is only the first of what I hope will be many more to come.

Today is another beautiful day here in St. John's so I need to get out and enjoy it. Fall is such a beautiful time. I love the colors and the crispness of the air. It is just a shame to not get out. Soon we will be stuck inside wishing that we can get out. You know that dreaded word "SNOW" could happen anytime now. Winter is not my favorite time at all. Actually I hate it for so many reasons. Driving in it, shovelling it, freezing in it.. The list is endless.

Have a great Thanksgiving Weekend!! Get our and enjoy the weather!
