If The Broom Fits



Today is the last day to leave comments for my giveaway of the Blending Stencils from Picket Fence Studios. You will want these I promise you, they are so much easier to use than masking paper. 
Just leave a comment on all my Picket Fence Posts since Sept. 14th to be eligible to win. 

I used the smallest of the set to create this card which took all of about 5 minutes no kidding.
White top folding card base, the blending stencil by Picket fence, a couple halloween sets by Picket Fence Studios, If The Broom Fits and Wicked Together and a cloud stencil by My favorite Things.

My Tribe



It's tine for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More and we have an inspiration photo for you. You can choose the words, colors, or any image from the photo, there is a lot of inspiration on this one photo so have fun!


For my card I drew inspiration from the colors as well as the orange flowers. My card is also for the CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers which is Frame it- use a frame on your card. 
The set I used  Simply Wonderful is by Picket Fence Studios 




So Much Sympathy



It's time for our September encouragement challenge at Calling All Sistahs
How our challenge works is that we give you an inspiration photo and you are to make a project using it as your inspiration It doesn't have to be a card for someone who has cancer, it can be for someone who has lost a loved one or just needs a pick me up. All we ask is that you actually mail it. Ya'll I have had to mail so many sympathy cards lately it just breaks my heart, yesterday I mailed out 10 sympathy cards and two card to cancer patients.  I hope they do bring a little happiness in their sorrow. I have a facebook group (Because Kindness) if you would like to join to help share some kindness with those who need it 

Here is the inspiration photo



To create my card I started with a white top folding card base for a one layer card, I stamped the flowers from the set Truth Is one of my favorite sets and it's retiring (insert sad face) and colored them using a Copic marker. The greeting is from the set Peaceful Garden.



oh and there is a prize involved 
a $25 voucher to CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and if you use CAS-ual Fridays products and are the winner it will increase to $50

99 Days


Happy Monday!
I am back with another card using this her cute String of Lights set by Picket Fence Studios. I can't believe that Christmas is less than 100 days away!
It seems like it was Christmas like a couple months ago. 
To create this card I started with a top folding white card base and a white panel cut down a quarter of an inch smaller. I stamped the string of lights with Versamark ink and then embossed with gilded embossing powder by Brutus Monroe, there embossing powders have become a favorite of mine. 
Remember to leave a comment on all my Picket Fence Studios posts this week to be eligible to win the set of blending stencils. You have until this Thursday 11:59pm to do so.

September Reminder Post




Today is the 17th and that means it is time for your monthly reminder to check yourself and get your Mammogram if you haven't yet this year.
 Mammograms are good but they are not enough, if cancer is caught your odds of beating it are better and they way to do that is to check your girls. Our challenge is a reminder for you to do so. 

You can also help find a cure by purchasing products from the Calling All Sistahs line where 50% of the profits go towards breast cancer research.





To create my card I started with a top folding card base and a white panel cut down with a stitched die. I stamped the butterfly from the Be set and masked it off and then stamped the Hope Ribbon with with Gina K inks. To finish this super simple card I added the "never give up" greeting.

Picket Fence Holiday Release Day 3



Happy Sunday! 
It day 3 of my week long giveaway and I have another card using the holiday release by Picket Fence Studios. To create this one layered card I started with a white top folding card base, the Small Blending Stencil and Santa's Sleigh Ride both by Picket Fence Studios.
I stamped the reindeer and masked him off and then placed the blending stencil over the card front and used the negative space to blend the Gina K ink. I removed the mask and colored him with Copic markers and then added the greeting underneath. To finish the card I added some ruby red slippers nuvo drops to his nose to make him Rudolph.
