Life is a Journey

So I took part in another challenge today...this time with the girls at Stamptv. Patterned paper is by Graphic45, sentiment is studio G. I used my fleur de lis impressabilities for the embossed dark brown and as a stencil for my card base. Branches are from the storybook cartridge and the little flowers are from a punch i had floating around.
Thanks for checking it out. Stay crafty!

Back into the swing of things.

So I took a couple hours and actually cleared a 12x12 spot for me to work in my creative space yesterday. Since hubby is doing renos most of his stuff has ended up in my space. Anyway, now that i have a bit of room i can get back to crafting. It's just that kinda day here too...kinda gray and rainy. Perfect.
This card was made for a challenge on another blog. The Play Date Cafe. The challenge was Black and white with pop of orange. I never really do black and white cards so i must admit this was a challenge...but i enjoyed it :)

Here's another card i made today:

I used basic cardstock for most of it. The red section is from basic grey, the paper roses are graphic 45. I used my CB to emboss the blue then hit it with silver sugar glimmer mist. The scallops are yellow layered with vellum and the colors are much brighter in person. It's been kinda icky here today, so to get a shot with decent light was a little difficult.

Thanks for checking in guys...have a good one :)
Happy crafting!

Thinking of you

I've been having so much fun lately experimenting with all the different tutorial out there on how to make paper flowers. Here's the latest. Looks a bit like a carnation i suppose. A friend of mine has hit a bit of a rough patch so i'm hoping this might lift her spirits a wee bit.

I also bought my very first spellbinders die ( large labels ) fantastic! I'm in love and i think i may have an addiction brewing ;)

This is the second card i made this evening ( guess the creative juices were flowing )...
It's my sister-in-laws anniversary this month and surprise...for once i remembered. I've been trying really hard to be that one in the family that remembers all the big events and has the appropiate card....that's the goal :)
Anyway, that's what i got done tonight...hope everyone has a great weekend!
