Bad Doggy!

Any Occasion card
using the "Bad Doggy"
stamp by a dear friend,
Jennifer Dove (Dove Arts)!

I've hung onto this card kit by Jennifer for a long time, and had just pulled it out to practice Copic coloring animals!

I love the monthly challenge at 
that requires using a pet on your birthday project!
And I would LOVE to add some new images from 
My Favorite Things!

Inside sentiment reads :
"Because being YOU is the best birthday gift 
you can give to yourself and others!"

I have so many friends who are fellow dog lovers that this card will be sent out very soon, I'm sure!
Always good to have a few birthday cards on hand!

Well, speaking of dogs, I must go feed my two before they think they've been forgotten!

New Folding Box Card

Anything Goes!

Yet another of the box cards I've enjoyed making this week!

This one will be entered under the "Anything Goes" at 
House Mouse 
as well as
Scrapper's Delight

 It's one I've made for a 
friend who needs a symbolic hug

Newest House Mouse challenge!

this week is:

Christmas/Anything Goes!

I made a folding box card for a friend who is wanting to start making more cards and knew she could use this as a template for some ideas of her own!

I used two different HM images to make the background plus the two little guys in the foreground!

It folds up nicely to fit into a square 6 x 6 envelope.

There is clear acetate over the little "window" to give the impression that you are 
peeking in on the cute little couple!

I also coated the peppermint sticks with Glossy Accents to appear shiny.

As you can see, it will be easy to mail and the recipient will be very happy with yet another 
idea to put into her holiday stocking!

Looking forward to the Fall and Winter holidays!

A Little Painting Fun!

This week's challenge at 

Good thing because I have several more Halloween cards to make before mid October!

I picked an image I hadn't had the chance to color before now.
How cute are these little mice?

And additionally, the 1st prize this week is from Stampendous!

I DO so love me some scrumptious Stampendous goodies!
I used their embossing powders (Aged Scarlet and Green Glitter) for the splats of paints. 
I have been anxious to unpack more of my craft supplies to find my embossing heat gun!
You'll see me use many of their products on my cards!
As always, colored with Copics!

Thanks for sharing in the Halloween "spirit",

Halloween is just around the corner!
our friends in the UK,
have a monthly challenge of 
"Anything Goes"
plus a fun "Progressive Freebie Challenge"!
That means they offer a FREE image to use in a project and win prizes! Their images are adorable, so you might want to join in!

I ran across a cute little SD image that I've had for a long time,
 and with Halloween creeping up on us, 
I thought I'd get a start on  my cards!

Simple, but fun to color!
The "BOO" is a puffy sticker from DCWV!

It's fun to find yet another challenge to take part in, plus I'd love 
to win some new Scrapper's Delights images!  
They have some adorable little gals that would be perfect for my granddaughter's cards!

At five, I have her starting to make cards of her own now!

Thanks for a great time!

MFT Color Challenge

My card for this week's challenge is a holiday one!

So anxious to start working on Christmas projects, even with the weather well in the 
100-110 range!  Fall will eventually come here in the desert!

Also entered at Scrapper's Delights, Anything Goes!

Cool weather can't get here soon enough,
Keep on crafting, my friends!
