Thankful

Hi guys. Just a quick post to showcase a Thank You card I made. It's actually a mini-card -- just 4x3...but it's cute. :)

Since everyone is into thank you cards right now (due to the US Thanksgiving I guess) ...I figured I'd join the flow and make one too. :) So here's a look at it:

God Be With You

Hi guys. I'm back to showcase another card.

Today I used some designer paper on my card, which is actually a challenge for me. I tend to stick with just textured cardstock or using embossing folders. but why not go out of your comfort zone ever so often?

I stamped a flower stamp from Stampin' Up and cut it out. Punched out a few leaves and lifted them a bit with some foam to give the card a bit of dimension. I wanted the sentiment to take the focal point of the card, 'cause it's a beautiful stamp. It turned out great -- and it was done in less than 10 mins! LOL

Our Hearts are with you

Hi guys. Summer came and went. Autumn is almost over as well. The year sure flies by!!! Especially when I think of our little guy who was born in January -- seriously where did those months go to!!! He sure made them interesting...and busier than usual...leaving very little time for scrapping and card making (which is why I haven't posted much in the past few months).

With the cold days keeping us inside these days though, I'm finally getting some time to craft. :) Guess there's a little bit to like about winter. :p

So without further ado...on to my card for today...

Simon Says Stamps blog is having an "Anything Goes" challenge. It happens to be my favourite challenge -- simply cause I can do what I want. :)

Of course I had to use my Cuttlebug (all-time favourite crafting tool) and add some embossing. It just adds so much more detail.

I stamped a beautiful sentiment on a small scrap of cardstock and simply stuck it on top of the border and the background. And because I love them -- a butterfly punch finished off the card. :) Love the result! :)


Of course I looked around for some challenges to enter it in. And here's the list:
