Another Christmas Card.....

Good morning my friends and welcome.  I've been working toward getting some more Christmas cards finished and some ready for the Nursing home as well.  Of course I used Heartfelt Creations flowers and pretties and all against a Spellbinders Christmas embossing folder called Scenic Poinsettias...what more could you ask for?

All the images were colored with inktense watercolor pencils and a waterbrush.  I did many of these pretty images so I can make quite a few cards before I need to replenish my stash!  Christmas is coming!

I have decided to enter this card into the Peace On Earth Christmas Challenge.

Especially For You.....

Good morning my friends and welcome.  Come on in and lets have coffee!  I'm here happily sipping away on my first cup and I can say I'm just happy this morning.  Not too many aches and pains and up and moving...what more could I ask for?

I'm here this morning to share another card I made using Heartfelt Creations products.  I'm not going into a lot of detail but I still loving making their flowers!  I'm entering this card in the Can You Handle the Pressure Challenge.  

I have been on a journey to find a card that can mail with a first class stamp and I think this one qualifies.  The pretty little die behind the flowers was one that was lying on my desk so it was perfect for my card.  I love it when that happens.

WOYWW 750.......

Well I slipped off for a few weeks and didn't post here.  I'm sorry but truth be told, I didn't craft much at all.  Sometimes I get in a slump and just don't do anything....this was one of those times.  If you have an interest, our hostess Julia at Stamping Ground is the place to be.  Go have a look around and join us if you like. You just take a photo of your workspace and post it there and then you can visit all the links and see what that person has going on in their world.

Here is my mess.  I recently purchased a Spellbinders BetterPress System and these are some of the plates for that. It is a pack of sentiments for many occasions that I just received in the mail.  I use Ranger Distress watercolor paper to imprint on and that is lying under the package.  Also some clear stamps I just received...I had the idea to use this on the center of my flowers.  Not sure it will work out but that is the idea.  Just more stuff here and there and lots that needs to be put away.  Maybe today I will get around to that.

Well that does it for me this morning.  I'm off to link up and then to visit some of the ladies participating.  But first a cup of coffee for me!

Wishing You All The Best....

I received a new to me Betterpress plate and decided to make this card to add to my stash.  I'm always looking for ways to add cards that can mail with one first class stamp and this card works perfectly.  I love these pretty plates and the impression they give is truly amazing.  I love running my finger along the image and feeling the dimension!

The image is stamped with BetterPress ink onto to Ranger Distress Watercolor Paper and colored with Inktense watercolor pencils. It is called Pressed Bouquet. The sentiment is also from Spellbinders from the Butterfly Wishes set. The background white cardstock is embossed with my Crafters Companion Pretty Florals embossing folder.

Well that's it for me this morning.  I hope you enjoy my card because I really loved making it!
