Some Fish, A Pumpkin, A Wreath, and a Kitty

I stayed home all day yesterday (in my PJs with no make up even!) and made several cards - it was a great day!

This is a case of catdidit on Splitcoast Stampers (FS351) - I cased THIS card. Cathy's gallery was so fun to peruse! I used MFP's Koi Fish set; I cut out the pieces and drug them through SU! and Tim Holtz inks to get the cool shading.

This card is for Sassy Cheryl's Halloween Challenge (you have two days to enter if you are interested). The image is available at Sassy Cheryl's store and Squigglefly and is called Sassy Sally's Prize Winning Pumpkin. I used a Tim Holtz Skull Die and some little skull punches to finish this one off.

There are a few hours left if you want to enter the Squigglefly Leave Me Be challenge (use leaves or an image that shows leaving. My image is available at Squigglefly and is called Wreath Nest by Marla Shega.

This was the last one I made. I made it with I Miss You by Lynne Stansbery. I have loved this image for awhile and had to break down and get it from the Squigglefly store. I am entering it in the Pile It On challenge which is to use at least two embellishments (I have die cuts, lace, flowers, and leaves) and the Crafty Girl Challenge which is Anything Goes.

Hope you all are having or had a great weekend!

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
