You're Awesome

Hi all!  Happy World Card Making Day!!!  Yes, for my non-crafty friends, it IS a thing!  ;)  I HAD to make a card for this special day so here ya go.  I used the MFTWSC248 sketch to create this card.  SCS is having their Hope You Can Cling To Challenge going on right now.  It's all about supporting breast cancer research and creating cards to send to some amazing patients at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.  Today's challenge is "I am a Warrior", so of course, this image from the You're Super set was perfect.  I embossed her on watercolor paper then colored her with my Zig pens.  I used several MFT die-namics to create the layers.  The rounded stitched rectangle was done by smushing some Picked Raspberry Distress Ink onto watercolor paper and spritzing it.  Once it was dried, I laid the Starry Night stencil over the top then pressed onto with a wet paper towel so that it would pick up the ink where the stars were - clear as much??  Lol!  You can see the subtle stars here and there - totally love how it turned out!  And I love that silver glittered paper!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you find some time to get crafty!  :D

Coffee is always a good idea and a Giveaway!!!

Hi all!  Here's a card I made for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  I always love participating with this fun group!

For my card, I used the coffee ring from the Thanks a Latte set from YNS.  I stamped it off to the right because I used the CTS142 sketch.  I also added a coffee cup die that I lined up with one of the rings for fun ;) The sentiment, from Clearly Sentimental about Coffee, was stamped on a fishtail flag STAX.  Just a quick little card, perfect to invite a friend to coffee.  :D

Now for the giveaway!!!!  How does a copy of the Creative Cards magazine Vol. 1 by Scrapbook & Cards Today PLUS a set of dies sound???!!!!

Hello, Friend

Hi all!  Here's a card I made for a two challenges - CTD361 and MFTWSC247.  I first watercolored my background with two Ranger distress inks (twisted citron and mustard seed), then cut it out with the four way chevron cover up die-namic and layered it over some primitive white card stock.  I thought these gnomes could use some love, so I colored up this guy from the You Gnome Me set with Copics.  The sentiment is also from the set, except that I had to selectively ink up 'Friend' from one of the sentiments to go along with the 'Hello'.  I stamped them on one of the Blueprints 1 elements ( I used this one quite a bit!).
