Peace and Comfort

Another beautiful image from Faith this week entitled "Peace and Comfort". I really don't like making these kind of cards, but if I need one in the future I will now have one. I hope I don't have to use this card for a long time.

I didn't go all out on the this card, as the simplicity speaks for itself.

I hope you like it and welcome your comments.

Peace & Love

BOO~Scaredy Cat

HI everyone!!
This weeks image from Faith is perfect for my favorite holiday - Halloween! Scaredy cat is so cute, I couldn't wait to play with it. You can get this image over at Designed 2 Delights digi stamp site or even easier - play along with us and get the next weeks image FREE!!!

This past weekend I was @ Scrapfest at Mall of America with my girlfriends. We had a blast - learning and playing around with some new techniques. I still don't have all my supplies unpacked yet, so this image didn't get my 'full attention' I guess.

It may be hard to see but, I flocked up the spider, colored in my image w/watercolor pencils and then blended them in. Put some Clear Star shimmer on the face of the pumpkin to make him look light he is 'glowing'. I then wrapped midnight twine around my stamped saying and popped up my flower w/dimensionals. You can't see it the best - but I colored my 2nd petal w/CI Paints Pumpkin for some shimmer, and dabbed my base flower in some white ink to give a cobwebby look. Then added some bling here and there and TA DA!! Then while taking pictures - it occured to me that the green under my image almost resembles a cresent moon~how weird!!

Well, hope you like it. Till next time : )

Sew Beary Kind

Well, another quick posting. Been really busy at work with people out sick, etc~plus I am finishing up my packing for my Scrapfest trip to Mall of America tomorrow with my girlfriends!! I CAN'T WAIT!!

Faith has another adorable digi this week titled "Sew Beary Kind". If you haven't checked her blog out - GET OVER THERE!! It's great and I get a ton of ideas by looking at stuff on her site.

I again stuck with the falls colors, as I love the colors of fall. Rust, yellows, reds......God's little treat to us before winter comes : )

Then over at Double Delight - the weekly challenge was sewing. OK....I am defintely not a sewing kind of gal, but I improvised as best as I could. I pierced my paper and threaded thru the paper to make look as if I had sewn my image onto the paper. I then added my own lil homemade needle on the end! I also followed the Sketches by Carly design on the Double Delight challenge as well.

I also added a lil shimmer to the thread using my Gel Roll Clear Star pen, and gave my teddy some bling for buttons!! Hope you like!!

Got to go finish packing!!

Finally Fall…..almost

Sure feels like it around here!!  Been cool here lately, but that’s ok….I LOVE FALL!!

This is the first challenge of the month from Faith entitled “Oak Wreath” at Designed 2 Delight.

Want some FREE digi stamps? Play along the first week of the month, and you will get a new freebie next week via email. Otherwise, check out Faith’s digi shop at and download your favorites.  It’s so much fun to play along each week.


I once again used my Photoshop Elements program to color in my digi stamp.  I then traced the ‘twigs’ w/my Clear Star gelly roll pen.  And then topped it off by putting some Diamond Glaze on the acorns for a lil pop!!  Then last year at ScrapFest @ Mall of America I picked up alot of bling in the Archiver’s store.  I came across this brown one that went perfect along with the fall theme.  And actually – that was the challenge at the sister site of Double Delight this week – Fall Colors.  When I think of fall, I think of shimmery, wet looking leaves.  So I used my CI Paints Fairy Dust to ‘dust’ my leaves that I punched out to give them a little shimmer, as if they were wet. 


Hope you can play along with us ~ it’s so much fun!!!

Have a great night everyone!
