An Angel and Some Poinsettias

I just love this sweet image from Sassy Cheryl called Catch a Falling Star (it is available at Squigglefly and the Sassy Cheryl store). In making this card, I used THIS lovely card by sistersandie at SCS (she is this week's featured stamper - FS358). I also used the Christmas Poinsettia by Elizabeta Kushner.

I am entering this in the Sassy Cheryl challenge for this past week which is Ribbons and Bows - my image has both on it.

I passed my test so now I am a Certified Quality Auditor! I have to tell you I was worried about that one! Now I am so far behind in my Christmas preparations that I am going to have to PUNT (seriously!).

I promise I am going to get around to everyone's blogs and catch up soon!

  12. Congratulations on passing your test! I know you are glad to have that all behind you. Your card is so sweet. The poinsettias are amazing - you colored them just beautifully and I'm in awe of your cutting skills! The gold you used to punch the prances is really nice!

    Again, I'm loving this lacy oval diecut with that sweet image, and those poinsettias look just beautiful!

  14. Congratulations on passing the Auditing test. People with attention to detail are good auditors-it's no surprise that this is the way your career is going. Your cards reflect your attention to detail. For instance that cute little star that you have accented to poinsettia with compliments the star in that little girl image. It's all in the details! You are going to be a fantastic auditor!
    Bear Hugs,

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
