Waterfall Card

I wish we had more of a fall here in Florida.....we are still having temps near 90 degrees here and I live in the northern part of the state. Well, if I cannot have fall colors outside, I can use them on my cards. This is the first waterfall card that I ever made and I am really digging it. When you pull the ribbon, the flaps pull down in a cascade effects and the Happy Thanksgiving sentiment can be seen.

I am entering this in the Cupcake Inspirations Fall Theme Challenge 481

That is about it for now. I will be back tomorrow to share a fun Halloween layout.

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #62

I needed to make a get well card for a friend and my favorite stamp set to use is my older
Lawn Fawn set and I also wanted to enter the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #62.
Here is the card I made:

As you can see, I did not go with a Halloween theme but instead I was inspired to make a horizontal 4.5 x 5.5 card. I used a navy background and the same colors....I even used the hearts along the bottom of the card and enamel dots. Thank you Lawn Fawn for inspiring this card from beginning to end.

Well I hope you had a fun weekend. Thank you for stopping by my blog.

Wishing You a Frightful Howloween

I am excited to bring you the third card this month that I created with an awesome sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap celebrating World Card Making Day (month). I am so honored to have been asked to be one of the guest designers this month. Here is Lisa's awesome sketch that I used for the above card:

Because my image was so large, I decided to make this a 5x7 card. I like switching it up every now and then in my papercrafting. Being in a rut hampers my creativity. Do you find that to be the case?

I just love that little French bulldog image from Simon Says Stamp that I used on this card. I have been collection French Bulldog stamps for a couple of years now hoping that after I retire we could find a Frenchie pup to add to our family. In September this little beauty joined our family.

Her name is Daphne and she is adorable and loving and also at times very rambunctious and mischievous but I guess that is what being puppy parents is all about. It is exhausting keeping up with her and training her but we love her.

I hope you will join along and play with us this month....there is an awesome prize to be had. You can see all the details HERE 

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Halloween challenge.

Thanks for checking out my blog....have an awesome weekend.

I am so happy to be one of the guest designers this month at the Sketch-n-Scrap blog. Today I am sharing my second card with today's sketch:

I just love Lisa's sketches and this sketch was so versatile that I had trouble deciding what to do with it. In the end, seeing that I have a bunch of Halloween cards to make, I inked up my Tim Holtz Zombies for the first time and created this card. I sprayed Distress Oxide spray on black cardstock for the simple background.

I hope you will play along with us this can see all the details and awesome sketches HERE

Thanks for stopping in....have a wonderful weekend.

World Card Making Day (Month)

I am always excited about World Card Making Day but I am even more so this year as I have been invited to be a guest designer at Sketch-N-Scrap for their MONTH long celebration of card making. I love the card sketches at Sketch-N-Scrap and almost always play along every month with all of them. Here is the first WCMD card sketch that I used for the above card:

Of course, I made a coffee themed card which is my favorite type of card to make....I make them for all occasions. I am even in a monthly coffee card swap....FUN!

I hope you will play along with us this month. Sketch-N-Scrap not only has awesome card sketches but the scrapbook page sketches are inspiring and awesome also. You can see all the details on WCMD (month) HERE

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Think Pink Challenge

My Favorite Things Sketch #456

When I saw the sketch at My Favorite Things, I immediately envisioned this card featuring our new puppy. It turned out pretty much the way I pictured it which is always nice when that happens. I am going to send it to our breeder for Christmas this year. I used card sketch #456 from
