That's Mister Old Fart

Is this the best image and saying or what??  My dear ex-husband's birthday was last week - so I made the card and kept it for this post!  I love the saying and we're always teasing him so this was perfect!  I used the Bugaboo image because this week is "ANYTHING GOES" at Lollipop Craft Challenge Blog!'s my submission!  You have no excuse not to play this week!  Use whatever you want! I used a Wonky Square Nesite and the positive and negative from a Spellbinder border!  and my Stampin up punch for the sentiment!  really very simple!  Now, go check out what the girls have come up with and remember - No Excuses this Week!!  Show us what you do!!!

Well, this is a fun week at Christmas Card challenges - for me a tough one!  The challenge is:
liquid applique

The toughie for me is - I don't have it and they didn't have it in any of the stores locally - I could order it - but it wouldn't get here in time!!  So....I used Gesso!  Afterwards - puffy paint was suggest, and lotsa other stuff!  So....use what is puffy to you!  The gesso was 3d and so I added some re-inker and glitter!  It's on the tree and the ornament in Santa's hand!  I decided to incorporate Sassy Cheryl's challenge and add PINK!  This is a Sassy Cheryl's image and so - Why not!

Now head on over to Christmas Card Challenges and check out what the design team has come up with and if you don't have liquid applique - it's a-ok!  Use what you've already got!  Show us what you make and you could win!!  Have fun!!

Merry Christmas

This week at Sew Many Cards Challenge Blog is use 2 background papers.  Well, I took that to mean to Design Papers - I guess in theory it could be solid, eh??  Designer's Choice!!  Anyway - you just gotta check out the images at Sew Many Cards!  Too fun!  Now really, don't you think this hippo is just too hip for words!   I did the gate fold card this time- i don't do it too much but thought it was perfect for this with a beaded oval from Nestabilities! Oh - and the flourish is from my beloved Cricut!  The paper is winter and the sentiment is Christmas but you could easily have made it a reindeer saying "happy birthday", eh??  Anyway, go check out the challenge blog and see what the team has to inspire you!  You will love it and check out our freebie (or almost)!!

Don't wait, don't hesitate - the week will be gone before you know it!!  Check it out baby!!

Little Star Sleeper

Do you just love this image of the mother and child??  This image is from A Day for Daisies!  I think it is as sweet as can be - I cut them out with my nestabilty along with the mat.  This sentiment came with the image.  I used a Doodle/Flourish and doodled with my embossing pen on the moon, stars, etc.  I love the shine.  My daughter walked up the next day and asked if the card was still wet??  In person - it really shines......Simple and fairly monochromatic and sweet!
