The Lord bless you, and keep you; The Lord make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26

Although my husband and I don't 'celebrate' Halloween, we enjoy the laughter of children when they get to dress up and come to our door for candy. However, living now on an acre+ lot means not many children really come to our door anymore. So to have fun with it anyway, I made this card and sent it to my Mom-in-Law to give her a smile.

This cute witch looks like she found a surprise in the smiling pumpkin. She was die cut from a jet black piece of velveteen card stock so really stood out. The paper and die cuts are from different miscellaneous companies of which I can't remember! The funny part was my husband. He looked at it and said the fence on the left hand side is crooked, what a shame. Some times guys just don't get the subtlety of art do they, lol!

Tea Cup Fun

Last year I had a few friends over for a Christmas Tea Party. It was so much fun I know I have to do it again this year and probably more than once! This cup stamp made me think of that time and the fun planning to be done. 

This stamp is from a set by Mark's Finest Papers that is unfortunately no long in business. I stamped it twice then fussy cut them both out. The basic card is my handmade card stock. 

I will enter this into the Outlawz Monday Greetings Challenge.

Forever Friends

I'm taking a break from my Christmas stash to create this cute card using a stamp set a friend gave me. I love these faces!

The basic card stock is my home made white, basic yellow background, and background from K and Company paper pack. I don't have a name for the two stamps.

I'm going to enter this in the Outlawz Monday Anything Goes Challenge.

Switching It Up!

Here we July. And I'm making Christmas cards! I usually start in late October, early November and am starting early this year to avoid being rushed.

I cleaned off my work table and put even little bits of scraps away. The table has been cleaned and Christmas supplies brought out. This is fun!

This card was made using a Darice embossing folder, stamp by StampinUp and my handmade card stock. The star isn't showing up but it has yellow Stickles to make it sparkle. The deep green is achieved by using only green tissue paper that was to be discarded from last year.

I plan on entering this in the Outlawz Festive Friday challenge that started 7/12.

Anniversary time

It's been a long since I've posted! But I'm still making paper and cards.

My husband and I celebrated out 50th wedding anniversary in May and I made this little sign from a 150 year old roofing slate tile, acrylic paints and a little ribbon, for him. It's copying a sign I've seen in many stores and have loved. The roofing tile is something my Mom picked up many years ago in a 2nd hand store that I 'inherited.'

This card is one I made from a napkin from our wedding. It is using the melted wax on paper technique. Rather messy but pretty when finished.

This second card I made using a maze from My Favorite Things store and a tiny bead given to me by my friend, Lynn Hagen. It doesn't work great but was still fun. Both card bases are my handmade card stock.

 So there you have my first post for this year. Yes, it's July, I know :) With some luck and fun, I'll be posting regularly again. Bye for now!
