I carefully slid my thumb under one side to lift up
3rd pics simply show how the tissue looks as you
The card also meets the criteria for Crafty Creations.
Now next comes sweet new baby lo of Max:
I will be doing more baby lo's, because other's in our family have had a new baby - Heather and Blake had a beautiful baby girl named Olivia! I'll be working on those lo's very soon, I hope!
Next, I want to show you a few cards I made recently. Two of them were made for the MSW World Card Making Day Crop. The first is a Christmas card that I was pretty happy with. It was Lucy's Sketch 1 for the crop. I love all of Lucy's sketches!
Here is one more made from one of Lucy's sketches. We had to make a boy or girl card, and I chose girl, so I could use PINK! : )
The base pp is brown with a shiny orange. I wish you could see it irl to see the shine and texture. It is by SEI. The pp adhered next with the turquoise, orange (pumpkin) and more brown is by My Mind's Eye. They have been making gorgeous pp lately. I stamped my images on a cream Basic Grey pp (one side of a two-sided paper). The pumpkins and sentiment (except for the word FALL) are Darcy Clear Stamps. I stamped those with a mixture of orange and rust inks, and of course green for the leaves and swirls. The orange leaves are stamps from River City Stamps. I stamped them with a rust color, colored them in with Copics, cut them out, and fluffed them up before adhering them for some dimension. The word FALL is a Pink Paislee stamp. The flowers are Primas. They are actually turqoise, even though they look more blue. Brown flowers layered on top were attached with copper colored brads.
The link to both of the sites for these challenges are in my sidebar if you would like to take a peek. I am just learning about Creavtive Inspirations, but it looks like a really fun challenge blog with lots of talent. Christian Paper Crafts is a site with a forum etc. There are some wonderful Bible studies going on right now, along with their fun stamping and other crafting challenges. In fact, we will be starting a new book at the first of October called Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World. There is a wonderful group of ladies there who would love to have you join in!
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you all have a blessed Sunday!
Also, here are some cards I did. Not going to post all of them, just a few of my fav's except for a couple that are getting mailed out to someone. Don't want anyone to see his or her card ahead of time! Remember, this was an ABC Challenge. So, this Happy Birthday card was for H.
The next lo is for an ad challenge at From Here to Scrapternity (the link is also in my sidebar). I really loved the ad, which was a vintage sort of pic of a lady holding a bday cake, with some text down in the lower right hand corner. The color was a lovely mixture of tones of a kind of rich burgandy. So here is my take on the challenge:
The photo is of my mom and her friend. My mom is on the right. She is 19 years old in 1941 and so pretty. I was happy with my colors inspired by the ad. I love the BG lace doily pp. I also love my Prima flowers. I took the sticker of the watch from Crafty Secrets and layered it on top of a chipboard circle that I cut with a circle punch, then put that on pop dots for dimension. The journaling diecut is from K & Co. I colored the design on it with my Copics. Have to use my growing collection of Copics whenever I can! I am trying to find all of the photos I can of my mom when she was younger, scrap those and get them in one album for Matt. She passed away in 2001, and we all miss her. I treasure every photo I have of her and only hope my lo's can begin to do them justice!
Be sure and stop by FH2S and check out their other challenges and the friendly folks. (You'll find those at both sites!) Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!
