Happy Monday!

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving and hope that you did also. Now on to planning for Christmas. How many of you have already created your Christmas cards? That would be a negative for me. Well, at least I am farther along in the process than I was last year. 

A new challenge is posted for Monday - Greetings group over at the Outlawz Challenges site. Below is the DT card that I created. The image is by SheepSkiDesigns. The image is called, Mika. I love the female images by SheepSki! I love all of their images but especially the female images.

Thanks for looking and have a Blessed week!

Christmas Comes Early

Hello Friends!

Christmas comes early...well at least in Monday Greetings group over on the Outlawz Challenges site.  Why not stop by and check out the fabulous cards that my teammates created for your inspiration. Our sponsor this week is Fred, She Said Designs. Here is the DT card that I created for the challenge.  I used SVG files from our sponsor called, Pointy Poinsettia Flower. It was really easy to load the files into Design Space and have my Cricut cut out the flower layers and leaves.

Thanks for looking.

Hello Friends!

I hope you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend. Now it's back to the grind. Okay, I know you may say, "but you are retired".  Believe me when I say this, life goes on and so does the 'things to do' list. lol

Did you get a chance to check out the Monday Greetings challenge going on at the Outlawz Challenges Site? The DT ladies have some awesome inspiration cards for you. The theme this week is: Rectangle Cards. Our sponsor this week is: Decosse's Dynamite Doodles.

Here is the card that I created for the challenge using free paper collection, called Cool Papers 1, from D├ęcosse’s Dynamite Doodles. l downloaded the paper to Cricut Design Space. I printed the paper out and then used an intricate die to cut out the top layer for the card.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have many opportunities to craft.

Happy Monday!

It is Monday, check. It is Spring, check...wait a minute. Why is it still snowing?!? Taking it as it comes and playing with digital stamps and square cards!

Join us at the Outlawz challenge site this week as Monday Greetings group plays with square cards and stamping. 

Here is my DT card that I created for the challenge. I used background papers from Heartfelt Creations.  My stamp is a digital stamp by Robert Jackson that I colored using copic markers, Wink of Luna Brush pen and Spica pens.  I love this female image.
