Challenge Card for 7 Kids College Fund!!!

I just got my new Magnolia stamps from 7 kids, and decided to join in on their challenge! The theme was fall colors, my fav, so used these fall looking papers, and colored her dress in "bright" fall colors! I made an easel card, but with a little twist to it!! The front of card is a smidge bigger then the back, so when it folds up, it looks like a regular card, no way do you see that it's an easel!! But, it sits up as they normally do!! I used one of my fav laces around edges, added Prima flowers, distressed the papers, and added my MS punched fence for a little fun!Oh.......and I punched out a bunch of branches, and made them look like a hedge around the front of my fence!! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin' a peek! Teresa

Halloween card for Waltzing Mouse Challenge !

I found this new site with AWESOME stamps, and ordered some which I am waiting for them to arrive! But, since they were having a challenge, I decided to join in on the fun! I used Graphic 45 papers on this, cut all those little stamps out, and added a mat to each one! Also inked and distressed the papers. The top paper is also embossed, but you cannot see it very well in the picture! I made the spider web, cat, and spiders with my new Cricut cartridge! I also added a picture of inside of the card! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin'a peek! Teresa

Happy Halloween!

I had so much fun doing this one..........except when I added the picture of Meankitty ( upper right corner of picture). I made this in memory of him, he used to be the one that got "dressed" up during the holidays! The poor ole' guy discovered this summer that he could catch tons of mice (which he brought home) in the pasture.......and we have been having trouble with coyotes, and unfortunately he became one of their victims. We miss him soooooooo much, it's just not been the same without him. So, Dorothy will be the dress up kid around here this year....and I'm not to sure she wants the job! I used Graphic 45 papers on this one. I layered them, then cut middle out making a scallopped edge, and added those cats to each scallop! I used my Cricut to make cats, and cob webs! Added some Prima flowers, distressed the papers, and added some ribbon! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin'a peek!! Teresa

My second "step" card!!

This is my second step card, and it was so much fun! Used my new Cricut cartridge to make the house, cat, spider web, and tree! The digi image is from "Just Inklined", they have some pretty cool images over there, you should check them out! I used my distress inks to color him, and really did a ton of blending to get the colors I wanted! I also used last years "My Minds Eye" halloween papers for background! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin' a peek! Teresa

Magnolia Card!

I made this easel card for two challenges! The Magnolia/Basic Grey challenges! I used their template for card design, but then also made it into an easel card too! I also added my Martha Stewart picket fence to the front of card! I love this new punch, I think it's so darn cool! I also added some flowers from Prima and Zva, and punched the leaves! I punched some flowers out of the matching paper also, which fits into the Basic Grey challenge for paper piecing! And the little jump suit and slippers were also paper pieced! Was a ton of fun to do, hope you like it! Thanks for stoppin' by! Teresa

Mo's image Christmas Card!

I made this card for the challenge over at Mo's digi pencil challenge! I soooooo love that image, I think it is adorable! Part of the challenge is card folding and using flowers! So, this card has a "drawer" at the bottom, and the drawer pull is the flower! I also "cut" the flowers and leaves out of the paper, which is the new Basic Grey Christmas line!! I also cut the small tree and snowman out of the paper, and propped them up with just a small piece of paper!! I colored the digi image with distress inks, and used my Martha Stewart punch for the little picket fence! thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin'a peek! Teresa

Sassy Cheryl's Snowman card challenge!

I made this for the challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's! I used one of her stick snowmen, since the challenge is "Snowmen"! I used distress inks to color him! I also used Basic Grey's new Christmas line of papers, which included some snowman paper!! I also punched some leaves and added prima flowers, a small button to star on snowman, and some bling on the corner of background to snowman image! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin' a peek!

Get Well Card

I love this image from Mo's digi stamps, it's one of my favs! I used distress inks to color image. I also used some of the new Graphic 45 papers.I added some stamped butterflies, also with distress inks, and my MS fence punch! The card opens with pockets on the inside with tags inserted! On the inside, I scanned my finished image, then reduced it's size to add to inside pockets! I really like the effect! Thanks for takin' a peek!! Teresa
