Newton's Nook

Hello.  I can't believe it has been almost a month since I have posted.  I have been making cards but I keep forgetting to post the cards, so I am taking the time tonight.  

I just love Newton's Nook.  I have been playing around with the cats, trying to get better at coloring them.  I think this one came out pretty good.  I won't tell you how many I colored before I got one that I liked.

I cut an extra cat head and put a  glue dot under it to make the head pop a little bit.  I also added a thinking of you sentiment at the bottom of the card.




I am using it in the following challenges:
   613 Ave Create - Anything Goes #194
   Aud Sentiment - Animals
   Cupcake Inspiration - Cats
   Paper Play Sketches - Sketch #37
   Newton's Nook - Colors

Chat with you later.

Lori Whitlock Stacked Heart

Hello.  I am so sorry that I haven't been posting alot.  I have been on a reading hit and not making a lot of cards.  And the ones I have made I forget to post before I stick them in the mail.  I will try to do better.

My sister and I have fallen in love with Lori Whitlock's stacked cards.  She has so many to choose from.  Since Valentine's is right around the corner, we decided to use one of the heart ones.  I just lvoe the flower on this one.  I am sure you will see it again. I added glitter to the love.  I want to do a red one next so hopefully I will get it done before Tuesday.

I am using it for the following challenges:
   Curtain Call - XOXO
   Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes
   Cupcake Inspiration - Hearts, Glitter or Colors
   Di's Digitals - All About Love
   Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes

Chat with all of you later.  Have a great evening.

Fun In The Snow

Hello.  Just a quick one.  This may be one only way I will see snow this winter is on my cards.


The stamp is by Mulberry Woods.  This snowman is so cute and brings back a lot of memories of growing up.  I am from the South and we didn't get a lot of snow but when we did.  It was so much fun sledding down the road by my Grandmother's house.

I put stickles on all of the little falling snowflakes and added a snowflake on the corner.  A friend borrowed my snowflake punches so I pulled out one of my dies.  And then I added a gem.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes
   Crafty Sentiments - Dies
   Die Cuttin Divas - Snowman and/or Snowflakes
   Tuesday Morning Sketches - Sketch #387
   Fab N Funky - Ribbon and/or Pearls
   PINspirational Challenges- All Bundled Up

Cut It Up Challenges

Hello and Happy Friday.  I hope everyone is ready for a nice and relaxing weekend.  I still didn't take as much time as I would have like this week to just relax in my craft room but what else is new.

I have a new challenge for you over at Cut It Up Challenges.  This will be fun.  The theme is HOT DRINK.  It must include a hot beverage; coffee or tea and it has to have a die cut some where on the card.

The challenge is sponsored by Newton's Nook Designs.  I just adore their stamps so this was so much fun to play with.    The winner will get a $20 store credit.


I used the set called Newton Loves Coffee.  Newton is my favorite cat (next to my living cat of course lol).  I am getting better at coloring him.  The sentiment is also in the set.  I will be using this set over and over.  Just so cute and some great sentiments included.

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.  See you over at Cut It Up.

Have a great Friday.

Penny Black

Hello.  How is everyone?  Ready for another week? 

I have had this set for a while and I always forget about it.  I decided to use the dump truck stamp.  It is a little bigger than I would normally use, but I do like it.  I just feel like it takes up the whole card.  And because of that, I added my sentiment in vellum. 



I am using it in the following challenges:
   Tuesday Morning Sketches - Sketch #386
   Crafty Gals - Use a Heart
   Little Tangles - Anything Goes

Chat with you later.  Have a great evening.

Fluffy Winter Snowman

Hello.  Where did last week go?  It was just so busy.  Hopefully, I will be around more this week.

I saw these new cut files from Lori Whitlock and I just fell in love with them.  You will be seeing more of them.  After I put the card together, I just had to add something to the top of it.  my sister thought the Fluffy Snowman from Penny Black would work and she was right.  I just love him on there.  As before, I paper pieced the scarf and hat.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Die Cuttin' Divas - Blue & Silver
   Simon Says Monday - Chill Out
   Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
   Paper Shelter - Shades of Blue
   Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
