Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #16

I have loved the whimsical images from Lawn Fawn Stamps for a long time. I believe this stamp to be the very first Lawn Fawn stamp I bought and it is still one of my favorites. When I saw the current challenge at Lawn Fawnatics to use your oldest LF stamp, I just KNEW that I was going to pull this well-loved stamp out. I paired him up with some beautiful Lawn Fawn plaid paper and topped my tag with a pretty red felt bow from Bella Blvd.

I am entering this tag in Challenge #16 at the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge Blog.
A fun lady from the UK named Di runs a challenge online called the Snippets Challenge. Her intent is to get us to use up our snippets, or little scraps of paper otherwise destined for the trash can. I do not know about all of you but I find it hard to throw away scraps of paper because it might be just the perfect scrap I need for a future project. One thing I never throw out is pieces of my Copic paper as that stuff is a little pricey and I can always use a little piece. Such was the case for the owl on this project. I found a small piece of Copic paper in my stash which was just the right size on which to stamp this Winter Owl from Lawn Fawn.

Tags are perfect to use up snippets of paper also. The stars were punched from scrap red and aqua paper and I heat embossed the sentiment on a snippets as well.

In addition to the Lawn Fawn challenge, I am entering this little tag in Di's current Snippet Challenge. She is offering up two awesome prizes and I would LOVE to win both of them....thanks Di!

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Pumpkin Pie?

I had a lot of fun coloring and making this card for my dog-loving granddaughter Abby. I think she will really like it as it looks like her dog Titan. I love these dog stamps from Tim Holtz and I do not use them near enough.

I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday It's A Stitch Up Challenge. The panel with the dog on it has faux wonky stitches on it.

That's it for tonight. I am officially on vacation now for 9 days and the first thing I am going to do in the morning when I get up is drink several cups of coffee and then clean up my scrap room. It looks like a tornado swept through there!! Are you a messy creator?

November Mix It Up Challenge

I love to play along with the challenges on the Ellen Hutson blog whenever I can and I was thrilled to see that the Mix it Up Challenge this month was a collaboration with one of my favorite companies....My Favorite Things.

I heat embossed my sentiment from My Favorite Things with silver embossing powder, spattered some navy card stock with white paint and colored that adorable image from Ellen Hutson with my Copic markers. I was able to get this tag down in under an hour.
I am also entering this tag in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Snow White Challenge.

Thanks for stopping in and checking out my project. I will be back tomorrow to share a Thanksgiving card (or two).

Chalkboard Tag

I decided to create the above simple chalkboard-look tag for my third tag in Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags. I was inspired by the chalkboard tag below by Amy Kolling on day 6.

There is loads of inspiration and prizes to be had also. For all the details in how you can join the fun click HERE

Because I have snowflakes and a snowy scene on my tag, I am entering it in the
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Snow White Challenge.

Thanks for your interest in my creations. Hang on the weekend is almost here.


25 Days of Christmas Tags

I have been so inspired to get busy making tags for Christmas because of Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags. There are some great prizes and awesome tags. I have a whole list of tags I want to make this month. This is my second tag I want to share. I was inspired by Tracey's Hipster Bunny tag on Day 6. I have the same Lil Inker stamp set as Tracey so I stamped the same image and colored him very similarly to Tracey's hip bunny. There is plenty of time to get in on the fun tag making. Check out all the details HERE

Because the bunny looks like he is all ready to hit the slopes or enjoy some other outdoor winter activity and my card has snowflakes on it, I am entering this tag in the
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Snow White Challenge

Thanks for popping in. I will be back shortly to share another project.....

Happy Anniversary

This is the second time that I used my new floral stamp set from My Favorite Things. Can you believe that I did not own a floral stamp before I bought this one a few weeks ago? I am not much of a flowery type person, preferring instead graphic images and cute critters/children for images to color. But I am so glad I broke down and bought this set. I actually really love coloring these blooms. I arranged a few of these images on a dry embossed background and it just seemed like the perfect anniversary card for my husband's brother and his wife for their upcoming anniversary. I used the colors of the current

That is it for this evening....thanks for stopping in to check out my blog.


Have a Magical Holiday Season

I love making tags at Christmas time. Some of them end up on Christmas cards but most add that special little something to a Christmas package. I have been very inspired by Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags. Day 3 featured one of my favorite stamp companies....CAS-ual Fridays. I used a non-holiday stamp (the ballerina from the Tutu stamp set) paired up with the sentiment and snowflakes from Snowy Sayings. I am entering this tag at the Anything But a Card Challenge at the CAS-ual Fridays blog.

I am also entering this tag in the Wednesday Simon Says Stamp Christmas Gift Tag Challenge.

Thanks for stopping in....I have one more project to share tonight and then I hope to hit the sack early as I have not slept well the last two nights. Don't you hate when that happens?

Sympathy Card

A member of our extended family lost his grandfather last week and I wanted to make a sympathy card for him. These are my least favorite cards to make and I must admit to just resorting to buying sympathy cards in the past. But recently I got a floral stamp set from My Favorite Things and over the weekend I set out to make a card to send our condolences.

I used this sketch from My Favorite Things:

I am entering my card in their Sketch Challenge. You still have time to enter and you can see the details HERE

Thanks for stopping in tonight to check out my creation. Have a wonderful week.
