K is for Kiss ~~ Challenge #52 at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers

The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers is back for another fun filled, alphabet themed year!!! Since Valentine's day is close challenge #52 K is for Kiss is timely, I don't make too many valentines, one for hubby and one for the great grand son. When I saw the challenge theme I knew I had the perfect image to use and it isn't Valentine related.  Have a peek what the rebel has done ~~

I'm Dreaming of Something Warm ~~ Challenge # 237 at Shopping Our Stash

Can you believe it? It's the second of February already...Wow. It's also Ground Hog Day but I don't know yet whether any of the ground hogs have seen there shadow until later this morning. I'll have to check later to see if we have an early spring or the dreaded 6 more weeks of Winter.

Shopping Our Stash has a fabulous challenge ~~ I'm Dreaming of Something Warm, the interpretation is up to you. You could create a project with a cuppa tea, mug of coffee, hot chocolate, a warm beach, anything that is warm and cozy.  Now when I get really chilled I head for the bathroom and get in a really warm bubble bath and just soak it all up, sometimes I take a good book with me to read and try not to doze off and have a soggy novel. Here is what I made for the challenge.

The colours I used are blue and kraft, I added the paw prints on the scrap of kraft and finished it with a cute ribbon  The background is embossed with the bubbles embossing folder.

Finished inside of the card with one of my favourite Birthday stamps.

Almost Late Again for a Challenge ~~~

Since before Christmas I have had a Lacy Sunshine image coloured and been sitting in my scrap pile along with the card stock to create it but as always other things took precedence but last Monday I saw the perfect sketch on Mojo Monday and I had some time to-day to put it together.

I loved the sketch because of the banners, I really wanted to use my banner dies and I did.

Finished the inside with the top note and a sentiment.

Sliding in at almost the last day with my second card for the Jingle Belles Challenge.

At least I didn't miss keeping up with my Holiday Cards, I managed two for the Jingle Belles. I had planned one for each week but that didn't happen. I used the same theme as I had extra deer already cut and the circles cut as well. The reason behind all the deer is ~~ I was making an easel card and thought I needed three sets of deer and I only needed one so that's a joke on me. lol.

I embossed the background with the softly falling embossing folder from Stampin' up 

Finished the inside with a scrap from the scrapbox and my newest favourite sentiment

Thanks for stopping by today, even though this challenge is over Wednesday evening there will be a new challenge on Friday.

Shopping Our Stash challenge #236 ~~ Inspired by a Book

Looking for my Clear it Out Tuesday post? Scroll down or click HERE.

Have you read any good books lately? You are in a good place to join Shopping Our Stash for the newest challenge, Inspired by a Book. I haven't done a lot of reading in the last couple of years, the last book I read was (keep it under your hat) 50 shades of grey, but I already did a challenge for that one. What a time I had picking a book and I took the easy route and chose "The Little Mermaid" as I had a freebie image from Sassy Studio design Facebook page. So here is what I made.

First I coloured the image with Yellow Rose, Sunflower and Persimmon twinkling H2os and fussy cut her out, I had a scrap of shimmery grey I thought would be a great rock for her to sit on. Next on to the background, I'm not sure if the technique has a name but I scribbled blue and green copic markers on a huge plastic bag, spritzed it with rubbing alcohol and put the shiny cardstock on it, the rhinestones were left overs from "My Precious" challenge card and the butterfly was sitting on my table.

close-up of the image and the background.

I was in a hurry and didn't stamp the sentiment on the inside, but it's ready for one.

Thanks for visiting today and don't forget when you enter the Inspired by a Book challenge remember to tell us what book, not all will be as obvious as mine LOL. Check out the rules at the main blog and while there check out what the rest of the Design Team have been inspired by.

Loving You ~~~ is the Theme at Clear it Out Tuesday

Challenge #103 at Clear it Out Tuesday is Loving You and the stash item is red & white twine or ribbon. The Sponsors for this challenge are Robyn's Fetish Digital store and Crafty Sentiments.
Well after a comedy of errors but a lot of laughs here is my Loving You card.

I saw this sketch at Fusion Card Challenge blog and deemed it perfect for my image although I flipped it. You can use the inspiration picture or the sketch or be brave and do both. I just used the sketch.

Rocking the Christmas Trees with the Jingle Belles!!

When the Jingle Belles challenge was posted on January 15th I though I can do this one, then on January 22nd the reminder was posted and I hadn't made my tree card yet and I promised myself to try to make one each week so I didn't end up doing a scramble to finish cards in December,  I had scraps and diecuts sitting so I worked on two cards today. Here is my "O'Christmas tree.

I embossed the background and spritzed it with glimmer mist I had the deer cut already so I just had to cut a few trees.

Finished the inside with my newest favourite stamp.
