Oh Christmas Tree

Happy Sunday everyone.  Hope your having a great weekend.  I'm posting my card quickly before I run out for a concert tonight.  My aunt had nobody to go see Michelle Wright with, so I agreed to go.  Should be good, it's an acoustic show.
On to my card.  I'm stuck on Christmas cards.  This is for Crafty Card Makers-Fancy Folds.
I just recently purchased Card Makers Magazine all on folds.  There are some cool folds in there.  This one caught my eye, and I had the perfect paper to use inside.
When opened up it looks like a Christmas tree.  You can't see in the picture, but I put glossy accents on the wreaths, and the scallopped dots I dotted with red, green, and crystal stickles.  That really defines the tree.

Have a great end to your weekend.

Happy crafting ;o)

Card Class

What a great Saturday I've had.  I attended a card class from the local craft store.  Five hours and 12 cards.  That Lilian is a real slave driver.  But what a wonderful pair of ladies.  Keep up the great work.

Happy crafting ;o)

Rain Rain Go Away

Fall is definately here.  Rain, cold, grey skies.  At least the rain held off last week when I was away with my daughters grade 6 class at Yearly.  An outdoor education centre.  What an amazing place.  Two days of learning about the outdoors and survival. 
On to card stuff. 
My patterned paper and cat are downloaded from Do Crafts. (Daisy & Dandelion)  The spiderweb is embossed with a cuttlebug folder, and cut into three.

There were two cats on the page, so I had to make them both.

Creative Juices are Flowing

It's been awhile since I've posted.  I fell out of my groove, but I'm back.  A couple of day with the family does wonders.  A belated Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends.  Hope everyone had their share of turkey. 
Our time this weekend was spent doing yard work.  We always leave it till that first snow fall.  This year we are so ready.  Raking up the many pine needles gives you alot of time to think.  I was able to plan out several cards, and even had a bit of time to sit down and do a bit of crafting. 
I managed two cards, this one is for 365 Cards.  It's been awhile since I've done one of their challenges.  It is for Day 224-Super Sketchy Sunday.
Here is the sketch.
This one is for Crafty Card Makers
Challenge #31-Step away from the square.
  you were to use no square cards
  I cut this out using a scalloped nestability.  It is cut from a card we received last year.  I just glued it to a white card cut the same shape.  I even used the sentiment for the inside of the card.

Have wonderful day.
