Hot Cocoa....and a new IDEA!

I made a few cards for a few challenges, and another because I was inspired by my WINE GLASS!
First, the card for the challenges....


 The challenges I made this card for are:
CASology #123: EAT! or in this case, drink....and eat the marshmallows!!!
Time Out Challenges #19, embossing with a twist of sparkle!

Now onto the other card I really has me thinking.  Earlier today, I was looking at my Christmas wine glass.....and got inspred to make this card.  So I was thinking....I have a bunch of wine glasses, since I love wine so much, and have seen that there are so many many wine glass designs out there.....would it be cool or fun to design cards inspired by wine glasses? maybe?   I think it might.....i have no idea how to go about it or how to actually start a challenge blog or anything. If anyone else thinks this would be a good idea and wants to help me pursue it let me know, if not, maybe I'll just do it on my own! is my inspiration and my card:

Untitled Untitled Untitled
Actually, now that I think about it, I can probably enter this into CASe this sketch #101, I think it fits actually.....

 So that is my idea....I think it is a good one, if anyone else agrees, let me know! I"ll go back to finishing glass of wine now :)

Thanks for visiting my blog tonight!

Merry Christmas!

 I made this card for a few challenges. First is City Crafter, #239, Techniques. My favorite technique is to spritz my stamps with water and then stamp onto watercolor paper, creating a blended watercolor look. 

The second challenge this card is for is Stampin Celebrations, #92, here is the inspiration:

I think those are the only 2 challenges for this card!   Thanks for visiting my blog!

MUSE #94

Untitled After several failed attempts, I've finally come up with a card that I'm ok with for this weeks MUSE challenge! The inspirational card by Marion Vagg is stunning!

While I'm at it, I'm going to enter the card I want to enter for the DT call for MUSE.   I've struggled, because I want to enter the PERFECT much pressure! I really love playing at MUSE and would be honored to actually get to be on the DT!!!!   So here is the card I'd like to enter in the DT call:

 The style I would bring to MUSE would be an artsy watercolor-ey style! I love playing with colors and stamps!Thanks for considering me for a DT position.
