Weathered Deer Family

Here is a card I made using a Blue Knight Rubber Stamp called "Deer Family".  The Free 4 All challenge on Splitcoast is to use a old background stamp.  I always liked the weathered stamp and it was perfect to use on my masculine card.  I used the ODBD Lacey Square die and added a piece of ribbon.  I used copic markers to color the image.

QKR Stampede - Darn Those Cookies

Hi, I am bringing a card with the QKR Stampede image Santa Stuck in Chimney #16901.  The cute sentiment is Darn Milk and Cookies #16902.   I can definitely sympathize with Santa, those milk and cookies sure don't do much for the waist line.

The QKR stamps come in both digital and rubber.

I colored my image using copic markers.

The QKR Stampede blog challenge this week is Christmas in July.   I hope you will come over to see us and upload your Christmas card and you just might win digi stamps.

Have a fun and safe weekend.  Happy 4th of July to all of you in the United States.

Sail Away - Leave Your Troubles Behind

Hi, Everyone.   I hope you are having a great week.  I don't know about you, but my week seems to have just flown by.

Today I am sharing a card I made for the Splitcoast Challenge which was to make a sea worthy card.  I used stamps by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  ( Misty Mountains,  Mini Greetings 1 and Beach Chairs and accessories)  I colored the image with copics and did a little sponging on the water.   I used the die Lacey Tiers by Just Rite.

I would love to have used rhinestones or pearls on the die cut, but since it is going to a guy,  I thought I would leave it plain.

When I look at this peaceful view,  it makes me think I might like to sail away and leave my troubles behind.  How about you?

Thanks, so much, for coming by today.

QKR Stampede - Quilting or Stitching

The QKR Stampede Blog challenge is to make a card using quilting or stitching.  I think I have that covered with my card.  There is stitching on the blue panel and the quilt covering the mouse has quilting.   I used the QKR Stampede stamp Sleeping Mouse #17502.  My sentiment is computer generated. 

I hope you will come over to the Blog and check out the other team members blogs.  Be sure and make a card to enter in the challenge.  You could win some cute digital stamps.

Thanks, for stopping by today.

Keep On Truckin'

 I was needing a card for a gentleman that goes to my church who isn't getting around so good. He used to be a trucker so I thought this stamp set was perfect for him.   I used today's sketch challenge from Splitcoast Stampers and the stamps I used are from MFP Stamp Shop called Big Boy's Toys.  This was a fun card to make.

A Lighthouse View

Hi, hope everyone is having a good week.  The temps here have risen and it is a little muggy already this morning.  Up until now the summer had been good to us.  I think we are now going to pay for the nice weather that we had last month.

The card I made today for a color challenge on Splitcoast Stampers was made using a Blue Knight Rubber Stamp called Lighthouse Silhouette.   I used distress inks and used the direct to paper technique. 

If you haven't visited Blue Knight Rubber Stamps lately, they have some wonderful new releases. 
Follow the link provided and check them out.  

Have a great day and stay cool.  I hope to see you again soon.

Blue Knight Antique Vehicles

Here is a card I made for the Splitcoast sketch challenge today.   I changed the main panel on my card and omitted a banner that was to go across the circle.

You probably have guessed that I really love this image since my last post was made with it, as well.  I honestly find it very easy to color.  I usually use three copics when I color images, but only used two on this one (B32 and B34).   I like the way it turned out. 

The stamps I used from Blue Knight are Antique Vehicles and it has three stamps in the set.   The sentiment is from the Mini Greetings 1 set.

I used Spellbinders Circle dies and MFT Blueprints 11.

I hope you having a great week and have enjoyed your visit to my blog today.

Blue Knight - Antique Car - All Geared Up

Father's Day is almost here so it is time to get those cards for Dad in the making.   This Father's Day card was made using the Blue Knight Antique Vehicles.   This set has two classic cars and a air plane.

The sentiment is from the Blue Knight Mini Greeting set.  I used a gear die and layered the sentiment over it.  

I used a piece of scrap paper from my scrap bag to give my card some color.  The image was colored with copic markers.

Have a great day and I will see you here again soon.

QKR Stampede - Anything Goes

Hello, blogging friends.  Wow, here it is Friday again.  This week really has flown by. 

The QKR Stampede challenge for this week is Anything Goes.  For my card,  I decided to use the QKR Stampede image Couch Potato #8503.     I added a computer generated sentiment that says,
"From Hot Potato to Couch Potato".   On the inside it says " That is what happens when you get old.
Happy Birthday".   (another computer generated sentiment)

I hope you enjoyed the card I shared today.  I had a fun time making it. 

Thank you, for dropping by today.
