A Birthday Card....Can You Handle the Pressure Challenge...

Good morning my friends and welcome.  I'm here this morning to bring you this little birthday card made using an embossing folder.  I used the Anna Griffin Foundry folder and the sentiment is a Heartfelt Creations die called French Courtyard.  I also used some of the flowers from my stash so it was a quick and easy card to make.

I'm entering this in the Can You Handle the Pressure Challenge. This Challenge is Anything Goes Embossing with a twist of Birthdays!  

I'm off for another cup of coffee.  Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!

Card For Hope....

Good morning everyone and welcome!  Well here in East Tennessee we have gone from temps being in the single digits and snow a week ago to 53 degrees and thunderstorms today!  We are on a roller coaster with our weather but I have to admit the rain is a nice break from all that snow and cold we endured last week!  

My thoughts have turned toward Spring this morning so I'm here to share a card I made using the Lisa Horton Calla Lily embossing folder and die.  It reminds me of Easter!

I colored it with chalk and mounted it on a panel embossed with an old swiss dot folder from long ago.  This would make a great encouragement card for someone.

Well that does it for me this morning.  I'm off to work on some bookmarks for my friends at the nursing home!

Can You Handle the Prerssure Challenge...

Good morning everyone and welcome!  I'm here this morning to share a card I made for the Can You Handle The Pressure Challenge.  I have several embossing folders and am trying to use them more so this challenge is just perfect for me.  The only rule is you must use an embossing folder.  The optional them this challenge is SNOW PEOPLE.  

I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder and I think the name is Bricked.  The snowman is from Heartfelt Creations and I stamped onto watercolor paper and colored with my Inktense pencils.  I am a little behind with my birthday cards so I decided to make this one of them.  The sentiment is also from Heartfelt Creations.

Word Power Challenge....

Good morning my friends and welcome.  I'm here this morning to share another card with you and I'm entering it into the new Word Power Challenge.  The purpose of this new challenge is to showcase our sentiment stamps.  

My card is 6 X 6 and I used some of the many flowers I already have made up and waiting.  Mostly they are left over flowers from when I was on the Heartfelt Creations Design Team.  I just chucked them into a huge jug and kept on moving.  Now I'm on a mission to use them.  The sentiment is also Heartfelt Creations from long ago and far away.  In the beginning most of Heartfelt Creations sentiments were of bible verses.  I'm very fortunate to have a few of these and I cherish them.

Happy Birthday Double D Challenge!

Good Friday morning my friends and welcome.  I've been missing for a bit but I've been putting Christmas away...what can I say...I'm slow.  I'm here this morning to play along in the Double D Challenge  and to wish them a very Happy Birthday!  Below is a copy of their mood board for the challenge.

And here is my card:

I used a new embossing folder from Simon Says Stamp called Fresh Daisies.  As I love daisies you will be seeing a lot of this little beauty.  I embossed a piece of bronze cardstock and used white ink to rub over the image.  The photo doesn't do it justice.  Now I just need to decide where to send this one.  I have a few birthdays coming up for family.
