Hurray for you!

Hurray for you
Happy Thursday, the weekend is upon us! I dug out an old stamp set for this card....I believe the birds are from an old Crafty Secrets set I just HAD TO HAVE, and then never used! The sentiment is from Papertrey....I just love that sentiment set!

This is my take on MUSE challenge # 77, by Marion Vagg....her card is so cute!!!






I'm also entering it into Addicted to CAS, #43, keyword Celebrate.

On another note.....during my time away, when I couldn't see to craft, seems alot of my favorite challenge blogs are gone!  I need some new ones!  Im going to go start searching and see what I can find, but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks so much! 
Looking forward to the weekend! Craft time!

Thanks for visiting my blog!

thanks for the lift!

image As much as I love watercoloring.....this challenge was difficult! Make it Monday's challenge for Papertrey this week was to do a 'no outlines watercolor' So ) this is what I came up with after oh......well.....several (which means a lot of wasted watercolor paper!) tries!

I don't have alot of papertrey stamps that fit the challenge.....so this one had to do.  I like the card, just not sure how good I fulfilled the challenge!!!

I'd also like to enter this in CASology week 105: RUN.  why? because my colors all RUN together :) I'm not sure if it is CAS enough, but, well....maybe it is.  It is really only one layer of card! 
Anyways....
thanks for visiting my blog!

Just Because

 This card is for MUSE #76. I absolutely LOVED the inspirational card by Theresa Calvird....





As soon as I saw it , I envisioned grapes!   I used watercolor paper, distress inks , and an old CTMH set I have with the grapes on it, I think it turned out fabulous!

Thanks for visiting my blog today! no more crafting for a few days.....beach bound for the weekend ;)

You make my heart...

 I made this card for PTI Make it Monday challenge # 172. This was challenging! The challenge was to make a rainbow medallion, using one stamp! I searched through my PTI stamps, and the only one I found that looked like it could work good was the feather! I like how my medallion turned out and suprisingly, this was the first try!  
I"ll have to try this again sometime maybe if I can find another stamp that will work, maybe play with some other color combos too.

Thanks for visiting my blog! ( i'm about to post ANOTHER card for a MUSE challenge that I am sooooo happy with! I hope you will check out that post as well, once I get it linked! )

Hello Friend

hello friend I made this for Papertrey's Make it Monday Challenge # 171, pop up die-cuts challenge.
I used a flower die that I had for the technique.  Then, I cut out a smaller flower and added it on top for even more dimension.  The sentiment is the 'wet paint' stampset also from Papertrey.

I'm not sure how fond of this card I am, I'm much more comfortable focusing on stamping!

Thats all, thanks for visiting my blog!

Love you forever

Love you forever
 Hi! I'm still alive (I think!) A friend of mine emailed me the other day with a 'are you still alive?' Lots been going on....I've been away. Long story short....I lost vision in my right eye for an extended period of time, lots of time and $$ later and I'm mostly better. I missed my crafting! I'm kind of tired now so not gonna go into anything else... Just going to post this card for the challenge at the Friday Mashup (FM167, watercolor wash challenge).  I did my own kind of watercolor with the hearts and tried to keep the card CAS as well, to fulfill both parts of the mashup. 
REALLY hoping I can get more crafting done in the near future, now that I can see again!

PS....since I've been away.....we got a puppy!
