Challenge #169 at Shopping Our Stash is Who’s Who?

Looking for my Clear it Out post? just scroll down a bit and you will find it.

Shopping Our Stash  has a new challenge for you, it’s to use a picture of a person on your project or an image of a person. that shouldn’t be too difficult. I made an Anniversary card for my hubby and I used a Bugaboo Designs image, we have been married 54 years and I thought the sentiment was appropriate.


Sorry the light wasn’t really great when I took this outside.


Now isn’t this the greatest sentiment for an anniversary, I thought so.  I used a rub on from my stash I have had them for two or three years and slowly using them, very slowly

Thanks for stopping by today and find some time to join us in using your stash and enter our challenge at Shopping Our Stash.

Who’s Crazy for Polka dots? The Clear it Out Crew!!!

Challenge  #45 at Clear it Out Tuesday is Crazy for Polka Dots the stash item is use polka dot papers. The sponsors are Digital Delights and Melonheadz. The image I used for my card is from Melonhead\ and I think it is adorable. Have a look at what I came up with.
First of all these are colours I don’t often put together but when I saw the polka dot paper  it was a given that red and yellow be used. The image was coloured with copics and fussy cut as to show off the background paper. I decided to make this a note card to  give to the owners of the Circus Room which is a restaurant at Walsh Station ON located on the corner of Regional road 10 and Highway 2.4
Here is a close-up of the bear and it shows how I popped him up.
Inside of the note card waiting for me to think of something inspirational to say.
I am entering this in …..

Thanks for stopping by today and hope to see your project on Clear it out Tuesday for the Crazy for Polka dots challenge.

Challenge 95 at The Cheerful Stamp Pad ..Happy Birthday

A Brand new challenge at the Cheerful Stamp Pad is to make a Happy Birthday project. The sponsor for the challenge is Stitchy Stamps/  The image I chose to use this time is for a masculine card and a golfer at that.  You can never have enough masculine cards on hand. After sympathy cards men’s cards are the least favourite to make/ it’s always a question do I embellish it? and with what? Well here is what I came up with for the challenge.


Here is how I finished the inside…….

Challenge #44 We want to see some Fancy Folds

Another week another new challenge and Clear it Out Tuesday wants to challenge you to make a fancy fold card. The sponsor for the challenge is Stamp Art by Kathryne.  Head over to the blog  and check out the rules and while you are there see what the rest of the design team have done.


For my card I used this cute little bear from the sponsor, check out her store there are awesome digis there. For my Fancy fold I made a Tee Pee card, there are a lot of tutorials if you google Tee Pee card and I followed one of them. The stash item is to use punches or die cuts and I used Spellbinders large circles.


Here is a picture of the card  flat it fits in a regular A2 envelope. There are several ways to keep the card closed but I used a small piece of velcro. 

Until I get my craft supplies unpacked and back where they belong I didn’t get a sentiment on the card I will find the right one to use probably when I need a Girl baby card.

|Thanks for stopping by today and we would love to see what your favourite fancy fold you came up with.

Challenge 94 at the cheerful Stamp Pad continues…….

Due to circumstances beyond my control I didn’t get a card made for the Cheerful Stamp Pad Blog so this week I have two for you to have a look at.Both images are from Lil[ Diva at Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet
Fun in the Jungle is the name of the digi from Lil’ Diva, I think it is just the cutest image, because I haven't unpacked all the boxes of craft things I brought home I didn’t get a sentiment on the front or inside but I am sure it will be done when I need a quick baby card. I made it 5 184 inches square and used my lacy square spellbinder die, and added a couple of cute buttons .
This digi is Lil’ Cowboy and I coloured him up with my copics and fussy cut him out. I wanted to try  a background using the Tim Holtz brick wall embossing folder. I inked it up with walnut distress ink and put it through the cuttlebug.Again no sentiment as my Happy Birthday Die is still in one of the boxes to unpack.
Thanks for stopping by today and you still have until next Sunday to add your project for the Anything goes challenge at The Cheerful Stamp Pad.

This week’s Clear it Out challenge is brought to you by…

Bugaboo Stamps one  of our favourite sponsors and one of your favourite challenges….Any Thing goes and the stash item is the same ATG. Head over to Clear it Out challenge Blog for all the details and check out what the other design team members have made for your inspiration. There is a DT call so check that out too.
I picked out a sock monkey image to use for my ATC, artist trading card, I coloured with my spectrum noir markers and added white fun flock to the snowballs.  The mini sock monkey is a brad.
I haven’t much more to add to this post except to tell you the reason I have been MIA for a little while is  I am waiting for laser surgery and on my eyes and it’s difficult to colour but really the hardest part is typing the blog post. Along with that my Hubby has had surgery and I have been spending a lot of time visiting him, things will get easier when he is home. Oh yes everything went well with the surgery.
Thanks for visiting today and don’t forget to play along with the ATG challenge at Clear it Out Tuesday.
