Hello Tuesday

It's a nice day here today, not too hot so I may go for a walk during lunch.  I am back today with another quick card for the Christmas in July challenge over at Scraps of Color.   I made the card using mostly paper scraps from my stash. I cut the tree from the Art Philosphy cricut cartridge, added a few rhinstone embellishments, the sentiment is a sticker from  American Crafts. I cut the little banner free hand, so it has some imperfections.   I have just one more card and then we'll be done with this challenge!

Holiday Greetings

It's cloudy and raining here so I decided to try to get another project completed before I head to church this morning.  The weekly blog challenge over at Scraps of Color was to create a Christmas in July project or one that uses the colors shared in the inspiration picture.  I decided to create another holiday card and use the colors in the picture too!  In addition earlier this week one of the designers from Scraps of Color Espire shared a post on creating using minimal time and effort and of course this was a post about something that I do all the time.  My card uses a cuttlebug folder, I cut the wreath and bow with my cameo and I just added some classy red rhinestones from Queen and Co. and the card was done!  I have just two more cards to complete the five card challenge.  Wishing you and yours a wonderful week.

Merry Christmas

I'm back today with my second Christmas in July card, I have three more to complete the challenge.  Today's card uses sketch #300 from Clean & Simple Stamping for inspiration.  I used paper from the Christmas Wish 6x6 paper pad from My Mind's Eye, a few pearl gems, some TH ribbon and the sentiment was cut using the cricut Simply Sweet cartridge.  I am also sharing this card for this week's challenge over at Hiding in My Craft Room.  This week's challenge is to create a Christmas themed project, they are also having a blog hop so if you are in need of some inspiration and a chance to win some craft goodies head on over there!  Have a great day.

Going in Circles

Hello and happy Monday, nothing exciting and grand to report here!  It's cloudy and humid here but I'm thankful that its not scorching hot.  Today's card is one one that I completed for the weekly blog challenge over at Scraps of Color.  The challenge for week #29 was to use circles on your project, I used pattern paper with circles from American Crafts that has been in my stack for sometime along with a few other items and the card was done!  The sketch inspiration for this card is sketch #234 from Operation Write Home.  Wishing you and yours a wonderful day!

Christmas in July

Today is my Friday as I am off work tomorrow, well I will be working but not at my regular day job!  I've struggled this week to create and share it seems the adrenaline that helped me get through last month's challenge has subsided.  Oh well such is life and we all do the best we can with what time and resoures we have.  I've been enjoying the moderate temps for the last few days after we had thunderstorms the early part of the week, this post is sounding like one of my Wednesday Wanderings.

Today's card is one that I'm sharing for three different challenges; two different challenges over at Scraps of Color.  The blog challenge for week #28 was to create a project using the colors black and white with a splash or hint of one other color and of course I used red.  This card is the first of five that I'll be sharing for the July creative challenge - Christmas in July.  I'm also sharing it for the Super Scraps Saturday challenge #157 over at Hiding in My Craft Room.  The card was created using scraps of paper from my scrap stash, the pattern paper is from a HL paper stack, the ornament was cut using the Artiste CTMH cricut cartridge, the sentiment is an AC sticker along with some bling.

House Blessing

Saturday we went to a house blessing and this is the card that I made for the couple, not sure why I didn't share it over the weekend.  There's nothing fancy about it but I like how it came out, I spent most of my time trying to decide what to do with the inside!  I have lots of embossing folders but I think I use this one more often,  I have yet to try the embossing diffusers that I had to have!  The chandelier sticker was part of a Prima 'Saying it in Studs' embellishment pack that I found at Jo-Ann's on clearance.  Have a great week, try to stay cool.

Thinking of You

It's Thursday and we have been having some really high temps and yesterday some areas heavy rains.  I've struggled trying to post this week as I'm not sure why I haven't been able to focus, just too much going on!  Today's card sketch inspiration comes from Clean & Simple Stamping.  Even though it took me some time to get the card together I just used a small scrap of paper from a MME Moments 6x6 paper pad, a few gems from Recollections, and a Hero Arts stamp.  Wishing you and yours a great day!

Hello Summer

Its Thursday and I'm so looking forward to the holiday weekend, not only because I'll be off work but because Saturday is my wedding anniversary and my DH is giving me my present today (stay tuned) for the LO reveal!  Over at Scraps of Color Rebecca Haynes coordinated a Summer card swap/exchange within the DMV group.  Today I'm sharing one of the cards that I made to send to another member, I used the DCWV Everyday paper stack, a cut from the Life's a Beach cricut cartridge, some decorative edge scissiors and a Hero Arts stamp.  I hope she likes it!    I am also sharing this card for the weekly blog challenge over at SOC, this week's challenge is Anything Goes. Wishing you and yours a wonderful holliday.
