Knit Happens

This week I used the sketch over at the Share Joy challenge to make this card. I love puns and this Grumpy Grumplings stamp set is perfect.

Tic Tac Toe

This weeks Share Joy Challenge was another fun one. I chose to do the Tic Tac Toe as I had never done a challenge like this before. I went for the middle row and used sequins, twine, and embossing. I also made a birthday square for a fourth spot. I have 3 birthdays next week so it was nice to make another card to send. I also love using my Grumplings Birthday stamp set.

Perfect Pearls Wreath

Today I created a card to play along with another challenge over at Papertrey Ink. I was inspired by Nicole Heady's use of perfect pearls on this wreath card. So I made my own wreath card and used perfect pearls on the berries and flowers. I just received the stamp set Twig Wreath and was very excited to use it for the first time.  I see a lot of possibilities for this set.

Camouflaged Pocket

This weeks Make it Monday Challenge at PapertreyInk is to make a camouflaged pocket tag. I just got this Uncorked stamp set in the mail and couldn't wait to use it for a thank you gift. This challenge was perfect timing. I also used the little greenery from the set Happiness in Bloom and a little cork backing to go with the wine theme. I can't wait to give this gift to a wonderful health care provider that went beyond her duty with me. I think the handmade tag makes it even more special.

Share Joy Challenge #1

I'm so excited to be playing along in the first Taylored Expressions Share Joy Challenge. Woo Hoo! For this challenge you can use the sketch and/or the colors. I tried to use the sketch but it just wasn't working with the stamps I wanted to use, so I used the colors.
I used the Dotted Lattice embossing folder which is one of my favorites lately and the Simply Stamped- Zinnias. I can't wait for the next week and the next challenge.

Watercolor Beer

I love my new die and stamp set from PaperTrey Ink. It makes the best masculine cards. This weeks challenge was to watercolor with a die. I think my shadow turned out pretty good. Love the new TH Hickory Smoke color.
