Speedy TV Inspiration Challenge - Colorful Hot Air Balloons - Last Challenge

While much of the East Coast is getting heavy snowfall and while we are just having cold temps, I am dreaming of sunshine and hot air balloons.  A PINK  hot air balloon at that.  ~smile~  Anyone who knows me very well, knows I do like my pink.  I made my card for this challenge and for the Technique Lovers Challenge at Splitcoast this week.  I really liked the technique and it was a new one for me.  We white embossed our images on white card stock.  I will do this technique again.

This will be my last post for the Speedy TV Inspiration challenge.  I have been the challenge hostess for about a year and a half.  I notified MFP of my decision to step down as the hostess.   They decided to discontinue this challenge.  There are other fun challenges at Speedy TV so please check them out. 

Have a good week.  If you are on the East coast with all the snow, stay safe.

Classy Cards N Such - Use Letters


It's time for another challenge at the Classy Cards N Such blog.  Today we are putting letters on our cards.   Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I decided to make an Easel Valentine card.    This was fun to make because I love the red foil that I used and the ornate bird cage.  For all the details on how I made this card and the products used,  you can find them HERE.

Thanks for stopping by.

Challenges:

Brown Sugar Challenge Blog - Valentine

Squigglefly Put A Little Love In Your Heart


This is a very sad day.  This will be my last posting for the Squigglefly Blog.   Squigglefly will be closing at the end of the month.  If there is any images you want from the store,  be sure and get them before they close.  

Today I am using an image from my favorite Squigglefly artist, Lynne Stansbery.  Lynne's images are always cute and so easy to color.   The image I used on my card is called Pinky Swear and it comes with three sentiments. 

I hope you will come over to the blog and join us for the challenge.

Thanks, for coming by today.  See you again soon.

Challenges:

Brown Sugar Craft Blog - Valentine 
Eureka Stamps - Hearts 
Simon Says Stamp - Hearts 
Crafting From The Heart - Anything goes

Speedy Fox And Friends - All White Card

The Speedy Fox Challenge for this week is to make an all white card.   I used a couple embossing folders on my layers to give them some texture, added white pearls  and embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder.  The sentiment I used is from MFP Stamp Shop and it is called "
Love, Love, Love".   It is a perfect stamp set to use for Valentine's Day.

Thanks, for stopping by and have a great weekend.

Classy Cards N Such - Beautiful Blooms

The gloomy cold weather has really been getting to me so I made this ray of sunshine card for the Classy Cards N Such blog.   I really love yellow and black together so I knew that had to be the colors of my card.    I chose a stamp set by Sweet N Sassy called Flowers in Bloom and it can be found here.   For more information on my card, go over to the Classy Cards N Such blog.

First Christmas card of 2015

I made this card for the Featured Stamper challenge at Splitcoast Stampers, I used the SU
Ornamental pine stamp set.  I had gotten this way before Christmas and it had not seen ink yet.
I really like the silver embossed pine.
