I love the Anna Griffin flip it dies that I got on HSN.  I used some My minds Eyes papers.  Then I cut the cat and ghost on my Cricut using the Paperdoll Dressup cartridge.  The sentiment came in an Anna Griffin set.  I am entering this into the FCCB Fright Night

Good morning.  It is time for another Thankful Thursday Challenge over at DL.ART. This time the theme is "storybook".  Have you checked out the DL.ART SHOP.  Diana has so many fun bundles of ribbon-she gives my readers a 10% discount.  Just use the code K34510 at check out. For this challenge I used RAO red ribbon from the newspaper-bundle, which also has black and white ribbon too.
I made this belated birthday card using the "Disney Friends" cartridge on  my explore. There are lots of pieces to this image.  The background paper is echo park.  When I cut out the Spellbinders label, I hadn't cleaned the die from prior use.  I like the way the yellow pieces look. The sentiment was typed on my laptop.  I gathered the beautiful RAO ribbon.
Now it your turn to create a fabulous fairytale project.  Of course you can always make a "thank you" project instead.

Yahoo first Christmas card finished.  Every year I attend a few parties where there is a gift exchange.  I thought these cards would be fun to include with the gift. ART IMPRESSIONS is having a "Till You Wobble" challenge.  The image I used is from the AI Hampton Art Reindeer set that I got at Michaels last year.  I colored the image using a brush and ink from Marvy Markers.  The papers are Sugar and Spice Studio "Rockin' Christmas" available at Hobby Lobby.  The first card is on an Action Wobble.  I used the last one.  The second card is popped up with dimensionals.  The beautiful ribbon is RAO red from the Newspaper Bundle.  I am also entering this into the Show it off Saturday Challenge over at LITTLE SCRAP PIECES

WOW it is 11:47pm, I almost forgot today is my 6 year blogaversary.  I still love blogging and creating new projects.  Reading and commenting on other crafters blogs gives me great joy.  How about some blog candy to celebrate.  Please leave a comment telling me how long you have had your blog and what you enjoy the most about blogging.  US addresses only please.  I'll pick a winner on Halloween.


I made this card for last weeks Mojo Monday Challenge.  I finished the card in plenty of time but forgot to post it.  I used one of my favorite paper pads Graphic 45 Bohemian.  The sentiment is a Unity stamp.

I made this set for my friend Becky's Birthday.  I cut the box with my Cricut Explore. It's the perfect size for a MAC eyeshadow compact.  I cut the grass and hills using My Creative Time Edge dies.  The dogs are Lawn Fawn "Critters at the Dog Park".  The papers are DCWV.  I printed the sentiment on my computer. The sentiment dies are also My Creative Time.

Recently I purchased a few Art Impression Watercolor sets.  I am making a series of fall scene cards.  The one I am posting today is of a barn. I used the Old Barn Mini Set.  Marvy markers were used to color the image.
I am thinking of doing this image again making the trees orange and creating a picture instead of a card.  A few framed images would look great in my dining room

A while ago I bought a Tim Holtz bird stamp and stencil set.  This is my first time using Texture paste.  I had so much fun with it.  After the paste dried I swirled on various Distressed inks using a foam dauber.  I water colored the birds using a brush and Marvy Markers.  Next I fussy cut around the birds.  I haven't added a sentiment yet.  Not sure if I am going to use it as a birthday card.
