Just for YOU

Hello everyone~Thank you for stopping by today!  I wanted to share with you my take on the card sketch                                         from Mojo Monday 284.  Here is the sketch.

For me it always so much easier to create a card when I have a sketch.  That is the hardest part to get right when I create my own.  First I will show you my sentiment.


This stamp is from Glad Tidings set.  It's a great Christmas set and I have been able to use it for other occasions as well!  Love that!

                                                  Next I will show you my bow.

After I had added my bow and was finishing off my card, I decided it needed something else.  I pulled out my flower basket and got a pale green flower from Recollections out and placed it on top of the bow.  This added a lot to the card and completed it to where I was satisfied with it.

                                                           This is my completed card.

It was nice to see the sun out today!  I got home early from work and whipped up this card before dinner and before it got too dark.  It's staying light a lot longer here in NW Indiana and I'm loving it!!  Thank you so much for taking the time to look today.  PLEASE let me know you stopped by.

Happy New  Year!

Hi everyone~

I decided to make a couple of cards today, but am just posting's the only one that's "post worthy"!

I used my stash....just like usual!  I love to go things that I already have.  I used Tim Holtz rosette die to make a rosette.  Behind it is a Martha Stewart doily.  On top is a sticker that I bought ALONG time ago at a
bridal store.  The center is a Spare Parts brad.

I love the elegant look I got with this card!  Used black card stock for the base and the print paper is from a pad of paper I got at Hobby Lobby.  Next is just some creamy colored paper and then on top of that is a medium colored gray.  I embossed it and cut a scallop using My Favorite Things die.  Next I cut a strip of black card stock and embossed that with Swiss dot folder.  I added some Prima lace and the bling I bought at Jo Ann's   Also used Spellbinders ribbon die and some old paper distress ink.  I just typed Happy New Year on my computer.
Thanks for stopping by....please let me know you were here!! 
Happy New Year!

2nd Mojo Monday 265 post

Well, I got it done!  Made a circle card for one of each for Mojo Monday 265!  YEAH!!

I don't do circle card very often and they challenge me, but I am happy with the results of this one.  Love to use pop ups to give depth to a card.

I punched out some snowflakes and used Glimmer Mist on them, but it doesn't show up in the picture. The little white snowflake I took off of a card I got a few years ago.

The holly and poinsettia are from K&Company. They have been in my stash and I love using them.

Here is my end result!  I'm happy with it and I just took both of the cards outside and put them in a shrub off the patio.  Hope they look ok that way.  Once again, thank you for taking the time too look and to comment.  I love to know that you have been here.  kathy
