Create with Connie and Mary CCMC442

Image may contain: text

I am playing with this Color Challenge today and I was a bit stumped at first then since I am already dreaming of my favorite season...Summer I decided to do a bit of Glamper Greetings. We love all things outdoors and camping is in the list. We have a little pop-up but are looking to upgrade to something more self-contained one day. This is such a cute set and the first time I have used it!

Dragonfly Dreams

I never thought much about dragonflies until we moved to OKC. There were hundreds around all the time there on the lake and many visited our yard. Now we are in the Dallas area and we are closer to a lake. Looking forward to having these beauties visit my flowers and garden. This is a great card that I will be making with my new stamping friends very soon!

Creating Pretty Cards – Sketch Challenge #67

I am again  playing with the Creating Pretty Cards Sketch. If you have never played...well, they give away FREE stuff just for playing. For every 10 cards submitted, they draw for a month of tutorials! I have won several times. I am addicted to playing. Come on and join us!

For this sketch I used some of the By the Shore DSP with Very Vanilla and Coral Calypso. The stamp set is a Hostess Only set called Pun Intended. The base card is Soft Sky.

Pikachu Punch Card

In the special education classroom that I work with, the students love the Pokemon craze and discuss the chase and collection regularly. That got me thinking about making a special Pokemon card for someone. Here is my fist attempt.

3x3 Valentine Card

How about a cute 3x3 Valentine's card. It would be so great tucked in a lunch box or book bag or even an overnight case. Love the red, white and black.

Hey, Chick

I really do like this stamp set ... Hey, Chick. It is so cute. I am in love with this goofy and fun loving chicken. This is a 3x3 card that is perfect for a gift enclosure.  This is a limited SAB set that can only be earned, not bought during Sale-a-Bration. Ask me how!

Hey, Chick

Here in the Dallas=-Fort Worth area of Texas chickens are big money.  And the breeding of chickens is from the normal to the fantastic! I have seen bushy chickens that look like a family pet and the ordinary chicken who has been engineered to be a great layer. This fun set from SAB speaks to my heart.

Tasty Trucks Again

Here is another tasty truck and this one features cupcakes...another craze on the market today! Who would have thought that something as simple as a cupcake could make you rich! Ahh, it is all in the timing of things. I made another tasty truck using my fun SAB set.

Tasty Trucks

I really don't get it. When I was a teenager there were food trucks running about but they were referred to as Roach Coaches. Now they are all the rage! many events will pay to have them come and you get in line to buy tasty food truck items. So, this stamp set from SAB fits the exact theme of the food truck craze.

Hey, Chick

Hey, Chick or How to Know you need to change your cutting blade. Many of us have to wrestle our tools away from our kids but I have to wrestle them from my husband.  He does embroidery jobs on the side and is always using my cutting tool to cut his interfacing. Well, needless to say it dulls the blade. Then I, unknowingly, come along to make a card and voila!

A fun and cute 3x3 card made using a SAB item.

Vintage New Year's Cards #3

And on to my last card as we welcome the New Year! Welcome 2017 and may it be full of blessings for all. Pray for our leaders and for peace.

Do Not Worry

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[e]? Matthew 6: 25-27
