Rubber Cottage Fox

Good Morning Ladies,
Back to my regular time this morning. Seems to be a cold one out there. The dogs are enjoying it. Me not so much. Soon the season will be on that much more creating will go on. In colder weather I seem to get more done.
Today the card is Rubber Cottage Fox
This card started with the fox. He was stamped on Bristol paper with black Memento ink. Two Stampscapes images were stamped around the edge of the panel. Tim Holtz distressed ink was used to colorize the panel. The panel was then matted with two cardstocks and the card base was covered in a shimmer paper. A Memory Box viney leaf was added at the bottom. On top of the leaf a Tim Holtz rosette was place. I purchased this fox at the Fort Wayne stamp show last year. I needed to use it as the stamp show is coming up quickly.
The inside sentiment is from Stampscapes.

CTMH #1 Dog

Good Morning Ladies,
 I had a restful weekend and am feeling much better. Dave helped out with laundry and cooking which was very nice of him.
The card for today is CTMH #1 Dog
I love the Memory Box stencils I purchased. Here I have used the star stencil on regular card stock and inked it with Tim Holtz Sea Salt Distressed ink. Then the dog was stamped. The dog image is from a Kelly Purkey clear set. The ribbon was created using a CTMH set. Each piece was stamped on blue and hand cut. It was then put together using beacon 3 in 1 glue. This was popped on top of the card with pop tape. The #1 was stamped in one of the stars.

 This is the inside sentiment using the same CTMH set.

Woodland Triple Flip-It

Good Morning Ladies,
I am counted among the living today! I think I am on the mend. I took yesterday off and did nothing except to rest.
The card for today is Woodland Triple Flip-It
 This card started with the Sizzix Triple Circle Flip-It die. I love the flip-it dies. They make card making easy peasy. This card base was cut from natural cardstock. The extra pieces were cut from a tone on tone map paper. Then the stamping began. The moose, bear, acorn, and evergreens were stamped on the circles. These images along with the leave images are from a wood mounted set by Mementa. A friend bought these for me at Tuesday Mornings. The circle edges were inked in brown cat's eye ink. The image wonderful U is from a CTMH set. The front sentiment is from Impression Obsession. The Happy birthday sentiment is from TPC. This made a great manly card.
This is the card flipped out.

Noel Deer Tag

Good Morning Ladies,
This is one wicked cold I have. It is relentless! As soon as I am well enough I am heading straight down to get a flu shot.
Today's offering is a Noel Deer Tag
This tag was created using two A Muse art stamps. The deer was stamped first. A mask was then created using e-clips tape and placed on top of the deer. Next the tree was stamped. Ink was sponged on using Tim Holtz distressed inks. The Noel sentiment was stamped next. This is a CTMH sentiment. A white paint pen was used to create the fog like feel. It was dotted and then wiped with my finger. A metallic art deco pen was used to create falling snow.
