Wedding favors

My niece is having a wedding reception this weekend
and I am making these party favors for each guest.
They are bags of popcorn that say 
"Thanks for popping by"
 The name and wedding date of the bride and groom underneath.

My husband helped me to fill them all and that
was a big help!

Now on to making cookies for the wedding.

Autumn Blessings

I made some Fall cards using napkins.
I added a sentiment and some embellishments and
these make a gorgeous simple card.
I cannot wait to send them to put smiles
on the recipients face.

World Card Making Day 2016

Today is world card making day
and these are the cards I made today to celebrate.

More Napkin cards



My crafting friend Ann M. sent me these lovely napkins.
I worked for several days creating these gorgeous cards using the 
napkins and some Mod Podge.

I love the look.  I am sorry the pictures do not show all the glitter
and sparkle.
The pictures just do not do justice as to how beautiful
each of these cards are.

I love to do napkin cards as they are so colorful.

I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I
enjoyed making them.

Piano Cards

Today is my sister's birthday and she is a pianist.
I decided to make some piano cards for her gift.
I made 10 of each of these for her.
I love the way these turned out even though I take terrible pictures.
I was gifted the die cuts from Deb Fischer and Therese Mays.

Key Chain for Carl

One of my great crafting friends Ronni passed away
last week and I ordered her husband a key chain
to remember her by.
I thought it came out beautiful
I got it on Etsy!

Sympathy cards

I woke up at 4:15am this morning as I could not sleep.  
I had all these cards done by 7am.  
I have been sending lots of sympathy cards lately
so I thought I would make some to have on hand.

The first set of cards uses Darice embossing folder and Inkadoo stamps.

The second set is Stampin Up Flowering Fields
colored with Wink of Stella markers.
The sentiment is from a set I got at a garage sale.
Sorry no name on the set.

Christmas cards

I got these napkin packs at Marc's
for 33 cents.  I thought I would make some
pretty Christmas cards with them and I 
like how they turned out.
I just might make these my
Christmas cards this year.
They would be different from any
I have ever sent.
Which one of these 3 do you like the best?

Graduation Cards

I needed to make some graduation cards
 so I got out my Cricut
and went to town.  
Once I got going it was pretty fun to do these in
different school colors.  
Thanks to my daughter Lani to remind me I had a Cricut to do the job!
They are simple but I don't think the graduates want an elaborate card.
They just want the money inside!!!!

I made this card for a plaid challenge in one of my facebook groups.

Masculine card

I always have trouble with masculine cards.
I made this simple and easy one today.

Coloring Challenge Day 30

For the last day of the challenge I made this butterfly birthday card.
I stamped the back butterflies and sentiment with my MISTI.
Then I heat embossed and colored the butterfly and mounted it with some
foam tape to stand out a little.
I have really enjoyed this 30 days of coloring!

Coloring Challenge Day 29

Today is coloring challenge 29.  
I stamped the image on white cardstock and then heat embossed it
with gold embossing powder.
I then colored with distress ink.
Last step is I ran it through the matching embossing folder.
Added some lace and wallah, a finished card!

Coloring Challenge Day 28

I tried a new technique today for the coloring challenge.
I ran my cardstock through the embossing folder.
After it was embossed, I ran a white crayon over the embossed cardstock.
I then colored with distress ink.  I wiped off the ink
with a paper towel.
Look how those flowers stand out!
I love this technique and will be doing it again.

Coloring Challenge Day 27

Today's coloring challenge is a simple card I made last night after 
getting home from a night out with the girls.  
We saw Grease at the high school and it was so good.
I had this background that is mixed media that I made last year at Cozy Crop House.
I stamped and colored the flower with Spectrum Noir markers and added some
Wink Of Stella glitter to it, then fussy cut it.
That's simple enough to me!

Coloring Challenge Day 25

For today's challenge I stamped the background
stamp in Versamark ink, then heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
I colored the background with distress inks.
Then I ran it through the matching embossing folder.
I added a silver ribbon to finish it off.
I made 16 of these as I thought they were so pretty.
They will go out in tomorrow's mail to all my crafting friends!

Coloring Challenge Day 24

For today's card I used the same technique that
I used on Coloring Challenge Day 9.
A fun technique that I will definitely try again.

Coloring Challenge Day 23

For Day 23 I made this pretty little birthday card.
I stamped the flowers in black and then colored them
with Spectrum Noir markers.
Sorry my picture is not the best, 
 The flash made my black paper look grey. :(

Coloring Challenge Day 22

I made this quickie card today for the coloring challenge.
  It did not turn out as I wanted.
I did not have time to make another one as I had a doctor's appt.
Hopefully tomorrow's card will be better.

Coloring Challenge Day 21

For today coloring challenge, I stamped the image and sentiment
in black ink and then heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.
I colored the flowers and I dabbed distress ink around the edges.
A pretty simple card as I had company today.

Coloring Challenge Day 20

It has been so fun doing these daily coloring challenges.
For day 20 I put some distress ink on a piece of white cardstock.
I then spritzed some water on that distress ink.
I stamped the butterflies in black on that ink, then cut them
out with the matching dies.
I used a Cuttlebug folder for the background 
and a sentiment from a stamp I have had forever.

Coloring challenge Day 19

For today's color challenge, I put distress ink inside of an embossing 
folder, then I spritzed it with water.  I put water color paper in the folder
and ran it through the Big Shot.  I made a couple of flowers and added a sentiment
and there is my card.  My hubby took the picture and it seems to me the 
card is way prettier in person.  The picture looks a little dull to me.
