Good Afternoon Ladies,
Here is a tag I made yesterday while playing with the new Tim Holtz reindeer die.
Now back to doing laundry..

Today I bring you the winter ice horse from Third Coast Rubber Stamps. This is one of my favorite stamps. Who am I kidding...I love all my stamps. I water colored the horse and added crystal laquer to the snowflakes. There is glitter under the horse's hoofs for snow. You can't see it in the photo but I glimmer misted the whole layering swatch. I edged it in ink and added snowflake brads to the corners. I mounted this on snowflake paper and tied a piece of yarn to finish this card off.
Well off to wake Sam for school...

As you know I am on the hang tag team over at more paper than shoes. This is my second project for November. The requirements were feathers, ribbon, and a raised item. I came up with this thankful turkey tag. It was fun to create.
I attended my first local card swap yesterday and received many beautiful cards. I am in a group of very talented gals. What a kick start to a new club!
It seems like Christmas is just around the corner. I have to make some cards pronto! It always sneaks up on me. Maybe I should just make new year's cards this year and be finished on time. LOL
Well....off to get Sam up for school...

Thought I would post my latest scene card. This is one of my favorite giraffe images. The first step of this card was to stamp and mask the giraffe image. I continued by scribbling my water color pencils across a layering swatch. I of course then brushed it with water. I then added the trees and colorized them with my watercolor pencils. I mounted this panel on glitter paper.
I made a power run to Jo Ann's last night. Their punches are 40 percent off and I snagged a leaping reindeer punch. It should go well with my reindeer border punch.
Well...off to get ready for dog training...

Last week was not a good week for me to post. Sorry about that.
Today I bring you a new Christmas layout. I created this layout using a stamped image from Third Coast Rubber Stamps. I just love their horse images. I used a gold pen to edge the three embellishment pieces. You can't see it real well in the photos, but I used glimmer mist in gold over the merry christmas and the horse. This was a fun layout to create.
I attended a crop last Saturday and I had a great time. I made many flowers with the new tim holtz rosette die. All that paper that you have in your stash that now you say what was I thinking. This is the perfect way to use it. When you get the flower all finished the paper doesn't even look the same. Another paper that you can use is the paper you bought in a pack that you didn't really like. But it came with paper you just had to have. I also made cards with the snowglobe bubbles from flower soft. Photos to come on those.
I am trying to get my craft room back in order. After a crop is always a good time to do this. Let's see how far I get. LOL
Well....off to create...

This is a flower I created using the new Tim Holtz rosette die. My friend had this die at the last crop I was at. She had me use it. Well.....I had to go and buy one. It is so cool and I will be using it over and over again. My mom picked up the new Tim Holtz reindeer die and I can't wait to snag that one from her and use it too.
Laundry is on the top of my list to do today. I don't know how we produce so much of it. My washer and dryer for sure get the hardest workout at my house. LOL

This is my happy dog card. I purchased this stamp at Cafe' Crop. They have some really cool stamps there and of course if it's dogs I gotta have it!
The mornings seem to be more chilly each day. The time change is this weekend.....so we get an extra hour. That's a good thing.
I got to listen to my Uncle tell stories last night. You have to love stories about your family that are really funny. He made me laugh and smile, just what was in order for the day.
Well....off to get Sam up for school...

Here is the tag I created for the MPTS hang tag design team. The challenge was autumn and had to include leaves, foil, and metal. This is what I came up with. It was fun to create and the bear pin can be detached and worn.
I can't believe it is November already. Thanksgiving is on it's way! That always means really good times with family and lots of great food.
I am going to a crop on Saturday. Looks to be a lot of fun with friends. Now to decide on projects and get packed up before Saturday morning. I never know what to take and always take way too much.
I gave my great nieces and nephews Halloween cards on spook night. They had fun trick or treating and were so cute dressed up in their costumes.
Well off to get ready for my day job....
