Love the new Spellbinders die.  I always seem to love the "looking
in from the out side" at least my house seems to have this
warm and cozy look to it.
The snowflake dies are a Cheery Lynn, the stamp is one from the drawer with no name.
The flowers are Prima.
Thanks for looking.

Well are we ready for some cold weather?  With this global warming
I am not sure whether it will make it for Christmas in Ohio.
This card I used some of the Stampin up products for the stamp under the CHILLY and
the die for the snowflake.  The other three stamps have been in my stash, like Forever.
The paper is an old music sheet from 1900 that I used to create a wreath out of, I know
someone would of loved to have had that old book, but alas who really would.
I am a pack rat at heart. So I was thinking outside the box.
Thank you for looking!
Happy Holidays to all.

Challenge #92 Thank You

I am thankful for so much in my life.  I think most of us are. I owe a lot to my family for
putting up with my addiction to making cards. Most of all for giving
me my time to create!
This card has a lot of company products on it, so I am not going into what they are
unless someone asks, which I will answer with my list.
Thanks for looking and to all have a safe Thanksgiving!

I am entering this # 89 Black Magic
I thought I would put a twist on this challenge by Sweet Stamps. I used a Sweet Stamp stamp for the flower, then
white embossing powder. I colored in the flowers and leaves with chalk. I of course colored on the white
embossing powder with Copic Markers.
The stamps in the background are just done with white ink.
I left some of the embossing powder on the card to look like the wind was blowing the pollen off of the flowers.

Thank you for looking.

So for this I used Tim Holtz ink rubbed on my card then incorporated tags for embellishments. Of course the Sweetstamp fairy was the perfect pick for it. The other stamps are from Jaded Blossom for the tooth fairy phrases.
I used some old lace that was in my mothers embroidery basket. and the other die is from Whimsey Stamips.
