My final card for now, again this is for one of my swap groups using the animal stickers. I love the way they change when you move the card. Hard to show that in a scan though. This is also my entry in the Crazy 4 Challenges contest for this week. We had to use a little red on the card. I chose to mat my cream colored textured paper on red velum. I added a large cream bow and the three tiger stickers. Thanks again for stopping by. Janet


Another card for a swap, for this one I used the sketch challenge on Midnight Madness. This was a fun card to make I used three different cuttlebug embossing folders for the different papers. They were all matted with black and the Rejoice and ribbon are also in black. The cross is in a light lavender to make my pastel card complete. Thanks for stopping by, Janet

Birthday Bears

Another card for a swap exchange, I used some stickers I bought someplace ??? can't remember where but think it was probably the $ Tree. They change when you move the card. I used papers from JoAnn's, versa mark for the Birthday greeting and a small piece of ribbon to complete the cards. The sketch is this weeks Sketch and Stash challenge. Enjoy, Janet

God So Loved the World

I made this card a couple of days ago for one of my monthly group swaps and for the Sunday Challenge on Stamping Sisters in Christ and the Little Paper Shop challenge to use some distressing. The stamp is a new one I bought at JoAnn's, I used colored pencils and a little bit of glitter in the centers of the lilies. I inked all of the edges of the papers to give a distressed look and heat embossed the message on the bottom to finish up the card. Hope you are all have had a good week. I am working for a few weeks and am really slow keeping up with my cards. Been getting some made just not getting them posted here. Will try to find more time during the week so you don't get everything on Sat. Enjoy, Janet

My last card for tonight is for the Cardpostioning system Sunday sketch challenge. The colors I chose are for a challeng on one of my swap groups, I used my Making memoring corner rounder and an EK Success edge punch on my mats. The first two mats were embossed with different cuttlebug embossing folders. The top piece was stamped with a new verse stamp I found at Hobby Lobby when we were on vacation, I finished the card off with three silk flowers with gems glued to their centers. Enjoy and good night all, Janet

Pick One

My third card tonight is for the Etsyinspired Sat. challenge. I decided to use the bold black flowers for my inspiration. The center image is embossed in a flat black embossing powder. I Used the last piece of my crayon background paper, some black ribbon and a heart dangle to complete the card. Thanks for stopping bye, Janet

Happy Birthday

Here is my entry in the Sweet Shop Sat. sketch challenge. I used one of my nestibilities die cuts for the half circle and embossed it with a cuttlebug embossing folder. The center image is another piece of my hand made crayon paper, matted on dk green with green gems in the corners. The whole piece is matted on a glittery gray cardstock from JoAnn's and I have attached a green ribbon to the bottom and stamped Happy Birthday to the top of the card in green. Hope you all had a great Valentine's day and have had time to do a little crafting, Janet

Have a Heart

This is my entry in the Daring Card Makers challenge to make a card using some hearts. I used the cuttlebug heart embossing folder for the mat, a fiskers hand punch for the hearts, a spiral paper clip in black with black ribbon to attach the hearts which swing free on the card. The verse is one I paid $1 for at Micheal's. The colors are for a challenge on one of my swap groups. Enjoy, Janet
