A Lure and Some Snow

At Dude Time Doodles, the challenge this week is Happy Holidays. This is a great challenge theme for me because I have a bunch more Christmas cards to make. The prize for this week's challenge is a $50 certificate to Its Cheaper than (OM - you have got to check this place out if you love die cuts and Sizzix - which I do).

I used Lure 2 on my card. This image is soooooo cool and it is only 49 cents. You can use it so many ways and it works great for a fisherman. I showed it to my Bunco group last night, and they all flipped over it! Can't you visualize how fun it would be with hearts on the little hook instead of snow for Valentines?

I am in a CAS mood lately (must be due to the fact that I still need a zillion Christmas cards. I am entering this card in the Addicted To CAS challenge #1 (ATCAS#1). If you don't know about this new challenge blog, you need to check it out. Their first challenge has the code word SNOW. The guest designers are some creative gals.

Make sure to join us in the Dude Time Doodles Challenge - here are some reasons you need to do it:

1) Everyone can use just one more Holiday Card or decoration!
2) The prize is really BIG! $50 is a big certificate and Its Cheaper than is a great store.
3) There are only a few more Dude Time Doodles Challenges and then they will go away! (If you have doing the challenge on your bucket list you won't ever be able to mark it off.)
4) The Dude and Dudettes leave some of the best gallery love out there!
5) You can use any image as long as your creation fits in the Holidays Theme.
6) If you want to use a Dude Time Doodles Image - there are some in the store as little as 49 cents (like the one I used) and the store has a ton of Christmas images (just look at some of the cool creations the DT used for this challenge).

And Lastly, if you enter the challenge and you leave me a note here that you entered the challenge (even the Dude Time Doodles DT can enter), I will put you in my own drawing for a prize. The prize will be a hand tied fishing lure made by one of the men in my family. I will get it to you before Christmas so you can give it to a fisherman on your Christmas list OR you could use it on a card like I have been known to do - LOL!

Hugz to all!

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Bit of Tea, Horses, and a Cowboy

 I love when my children follow in my footsteps and beyond (only the cool footsteps, of course).   My daughter, Allie, has developed a love of tea.  She sent me this picture over the weekend of her having tea in her newly remodelled bedroom.   She was drinking Breakfast in Paris tea in one of her favorite thrift store mugs.  This is my ticket to the T-day gathering over at Elizabeth's blog .  To join us, all you have to do is have a drink related post (can be any type of drink).   The neighborhood horses have been gathering in our backyard for some reason. Our horse refuses to come up near our house because the lady who owns all these horses gives her much better treats.  They all jump the fences and visit everyone.  The mule in the picture is actually named after me because I named one of cows after the neighbor (he paid me back - lol). I gave them apples when they came on Sunday, and they have come back every day since - lol.  We had a bit of sadness yesterday when another neighb

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo
