DD's Feeling Ducky and Winter Fest

My DD wanted to make a card for the Clearly Delightful Monthly Challenge because she loves the adorable duck stamp they are offering participants. She also decided to try her first sketch challenge by using the sketch that Kim Marie created for the Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers (SBS29). She made this card to give to her Great Grandma who is currently in a nursing home recovering from a fall. She took her time, asked a lot of questions, and put together a wonderful card. Look at the sponging! She didn't want the duck floating in the air so I told her how to make a background. She has also been looking at the projects made by other kids and really was impressed by Kayla. I love this card!

I thought I would share a couple of pictures from Saturday. Here a picture of DD and me freezing at Winter Fest. Boy, the wind was COLD but we still had a good time. I also included a picture of my favorite ice sculpture. I was just amazed by the creativity and ingenuity of these artists.
I'll be back tomorrow morning my Lindsay's Stamp Stuff DT posting show some fun ways to package Valentines treats.

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …
It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.
