Creative Accents Challenge

At least the sun is finally shining today.  Yesterday was cool and dull.  We had a nice visit from DH mom and two sisters with their husbands.  Jack brought back our riding lawnmower, that he took several years back to fix.  Thought the little guy was big enough to drive it now.  Look out. 
A couple of weeks ago, I stumbled across a blog hop from Creative Accents.  Had a great time checking out all the sights.  Thought I would try their latest challenge.

ABC Challenge
On my card I've used the new apple cidar paper from imaginisce. (just picked up a 6x6 pack the other day, love the line) My alphabet is stamped and embossed in black.  The apples are covered with red glitter and the stems are brown flock for the bling, and the apple itself is cut from chipboard.
Rather a simple card, but hope you enjoy.

Happy crafting ;o)

Project 12 August

It's better late than never.  I just couldn't get motivated this month to get my LO in on time.  My printer wasn't working properly so I was really reluctant to use it.  Then I ran out of ink.  By the time I started it, I would have had to rush to get it posted in time.  So I decided to just take my time.  And here is the finished product.
Just a reminder that you too can join in the monthly challenge.  You can find it at Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine under Project 12.
Here is the sketch for August. 

 Happy crafting ;o)

Autumn is here

After all the extreme heat this summer, we now have rain and cool.  It feels soooo cold.  I'm thinking of turning the heat on soon if this keeps up. 
The kids have been back to school for three days and everything is going great.  The only complaint the little guy had, was his BF isn't in his class, but they get to see each other at recess.
For this card I started out by scoring the front in the diamond pattern, and then distressed it with Brown Distress Ink.  The sentiment is black embossed.  The stamp is a new one from Hero Arts, and colored with markers.
This card is for two challenges:
Sentimental Sundays-Recipe Card-one solid paper
                                                      2patterned paper
                                                       3 embelishments

Rain rain go away

Wow, it's the last long weekend of the summer.  Tuesday the kids are back to school.  We still have the little guys room ripped apart.  His mattress is on the livingroom floor.  Want to have him back in his room by tomorrow.  Most of the furniture can be put back in and out of the dinningroom. 
What a temperature change we have had.  It's gone from overheating and humidity to rain and cold.  I'm going to have get a sweatshirt out today,  it's chilly.  But I'm not complaining because the white stuff will be here before we know it. 

I made another card using the pyramid pics form Reddy Creative Cards.  This one actual came in the package with the last one I made.  I used coordination paper in whitewash blue, embossing it with snowflakes, and sanding for the blue to show through.  Hope you enjoy. Everyone have a great long weekend. 

Happy crafting ;o)

Wishing you peace

With the hot and humid days lately it's hard to think about the cold and Christmas.  But when I was in the Craft Nook the other day looking around, I stumbled over some new pyramid cards.  I love putting together these cards.  This one is from Reddy Creative Cards.  So here is my first Christmas card for this year. 

This card was completed for Card Patterns-Sketch 79.

Five more sleeps till school.
