Gaby and Abby Challenge #7

HI all!
I have a second post today--this one is for the Gaby Abby Challenges that I love to try to enter each week. I almost didn't make this one-but I got 'er done!! Heehee.
This week the challenge was anything Thanksgiving, so I hope that my scarecrow still counts--I hope, cuz the prize this week is the most GORGEOUS paper ever! Moonrise by SEI

The DP I used for this card are from The Autumn Splendor Pack by DCWV. The sentiment is made with SU stamps, and the stickers are from a pack called Pumpkin Pie from K&Company--an early Christmas present from my daughter, as she thought I could use them before the season was gone for the year! She was right--aren't they adorable?!!! Well, gotta go make the kiddos some lunch-Emily has a friend over today--and they are hungry again!

Sunday Sketch and Stamp #42

Hi all! Happy Sunday to you! This week's challenge is sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs, so
I have made a card today to enter into the Sunday Sketch and Stamp.
I do see however that I put my top stars in the wrong place--but hope it still counts! This cute Christmas Tree is available as a digi image over at Fresh Brewed Designs. I used Puff paint for the snow and the stars are cut out from some SU stamps I stamped. I colored with my copics and the DP are from DCWV Christmas Glitter stack.
Enjoy your day!

I am so late.....and a new blog candy winner

I am so sorry! Time just got away from me for posting the new challenge for FRESH BREWED for this week. I don't want to rant about work today-or I'd tell you more....but Hey, I don't have to deal with work today, so....

This weeks challenge is WINTER-CHRISTMAS theme.
Isn't this little gal just adorable?!!! I love the snow buddies!
I have used more of a pastel color pallet today, as I think it is nice to change it up for Christmas--and not always use the traditional colors!
I never did hear from the last gal who was chosen to win my blog candy-so here is the new winner--http://triesmakingcards.blogspot.com/ --if I don't hear from her by Saturday at noon (my time) I will randomly pick another winner.
Happy Turkey day everyone! And again--I am so sorry I am so late in posting this!

Gaby Abby Challenge #6

Whoohoo!! I finally had time to make a card for myself today!! I will be entering it in The Gaby Abby Challenge #6. It seems like this last week has been overtaken with doing things for others--so I am very happy to be caught up and get something done off my personal list! I decided to go with a card for this challenge--and it was to be fall/harvest themed. I have used a sentiment from my new SU stamp set-Day of Gratitude. ( I made a couple cards with another stamp from this set that just turned out awesome--and I forgot to get a pic!!!) The little acorns came from the same set, and the swirlies from the SU set Rustic Rooster. My pizza eating turkey is from Heartwarming vintage booklets..some really cute thing in there!! Designer papers from DCWV -The rustic stack.
Have a great Saturday--and hurry there is a fantastic prize this week--you still have time to enter- go HERE.

blog candy and new cards

Hi all! Just a reminder that I have some blog candy available--check out the post HERE.

I had the pleasure of going to a stamping class yesterday, and we made some really neat cards!
I am so excited about one of  the Penny Black cards we made--that I can't wait to make variations of it! Of course I just had to have the stamp--so now I can and will use it often for this Christmas season!
Come to find out the gal who taught the class (Beth) is actually a design team member for Penny Black-and I actually went to school and graduated with her brother John! How cool is that??!so, want to see the cards we made? (Keep in mind that mine are nowhere near as gorgeous as hers are!!) But hey, I got to experience new techniques and can now try and try again with at least the one stamp--till I get it perfect! I tried to fix a boo boo when I got home that  I had made on the wise men card--and of course ended up ruining it! (the gold).
Here are a couple I made tonight.
