Wild West Challenge

The QKR Stampede Challenge blog has a new challenge up today and the twist is "Wild West".  You do not have to use a QKR image to play this challenge.

I colored my little Cowboy #14303  with copics  I used white acrylic paint to make the dots on his bandana.  I added a banner in the upper left corner and added a silver star.    The paper I used was scraps that was in my stash. 

Thank you, for stopping by.  Have a fun and safe Labor Day Weekend.

Ruffled Feathers

Here is a card I made using a Flourish Stamp set called 'Tweeting Friends".   I love this set and the sentiment is so cute.  I suppose I will have to ruffle some feathers with someone so I have an excuse to send it.  ~Grin~

I colored my image using copic markers.  I fussy cut the birds and attached them to the stitched oval.  I think it made them pop a little more.

The Stitched Oval and  Lacey Square dies I used are by Our Daily Bread Designs.  The small ovals are by Spellbinders.

Thank you, for joining me today.  I hoped you liked my card.  Come back on Friday and I will have another one for you.  I will be using a cute little western owl, you won't want to miss it.

National Bow Tie Day

It is National Bow Tie Day.  How about that?  Did you know there was such a day?   I sure didn't, but I would hate not to celebrate it now that I know about it. ~smile~  Actually this card is for the CAS challenge on Splitcoast to make a card with a bow.  I used the Stampin' Up Dapper Dad stamp set.  I pulled out my Score Pal to make some lines on the white shirt.  (I hope you can see them)  I have oodles of black rhinestones so I added them to the shirt instead of buttons.

I have a friend who sends birthday cards to her clients, I thought I would make up a couple to send her way.  She is always looking for cute, but quick and easy cards to make for them.  I think I will make the next one in turquoise.

Thank you, for stopping by today.

Barn Gate with Hot Air Balloon

How relaxing to be sitting on the fence in the barnyard watching hot air balloons fly over with a cold glass of lemonade in your hand!   It sounds good to me.  Things seem to be too busy these days.  We need to take time to drink the lemonade.

I am loving this new stamp by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps called Barnyard Gate.  I  colored the image using copics then I used a cloud template to make the fluffy clouds.   I stamped and colored the hot air balloons.  I fussy cut them and added them to my scene. The Hot Air Balloons is also by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  I love hot air balloons so you will be seeing a lot of this stamp.

I hope you have some wonderful plans for the weekend.  The weekend weather is fabulous here.  The days are perfect with 75-80  degrees in the day and the nights are cool.  Makes me want to sit by the fire pit roasting marshmallows.

Thanks, for stopping by.   Have fun weekend and stay safe.

Hot Air Balloon Festival

Here is a card I made using Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  The Blue Knight sets that I used are Relaxing at the Beach,  Hot Air BalloonsBeach Chairs and Accessories and Sand Castle and Accessories.  I love hot air balloons and think it would be neat to go to a Balloon Festival sometime.  I did get to take a ride on a hot air balloon with my sister in California and that was fun.

Have a great week and I am happy you came by to take a look at my card today.

The Green Barn

Here is a card I made for the Splitcoast Stampers Ways To Use It Challenge.   I have always wanted to make this barn green so I finally did it.   That is the good thing about creating cards.  You can color the images any color you like.   I think I like the green as well as I like the barn in red.   Next time, I think I will give it a red roof and silo with the green.

I used the Blue Knight Rubber stamp Barn and Silo.    The scripture is from the Bible Verse 2 stamp set and I embossed it in gold.

Thanks, for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with another post.  See you then.
