Good morning my friends and welcome visitors!

OSAAT #237 Anything Goes With Appreciation

Good morning my friends and welcome visitors!

I hope that you are having a wonderful weekend!  I have been gardening.  I love putting all my baby plants in the ground and watching them grow.

Wow!  My craft room is getting a little dusty!

Luckily for me, I have my design teams to keep me motivated.  Today, I get to show you what I made for one of my favorite design teams One Stitch At A Time.  The challenge is #237 - Anything Goes with Appreciation.

The name of this digital stamp is Sea Captain by Floppy Latte.  I just love his rugged good looks.  He could be used for a birthday card, Father's day card or even wall art.

Here is a close up of the old man of the sea.

As you can tell, I really enjoyed coloring him with my copic markers.  I chalked around the edges with my powder puff feather gray chalk.

The stamped sentiment says "A light, a compass, a beacon true -My life is richly blessed by you."  This sentiment always makes me think of my "Sea Captain" my husband who keeps me on course and reminds me of what is important in my life.  I hope he knows how much I appreciate him.

The paper that I used is Graphic 45 "By the Sea" and Authentique "Down by the Sea" the Embellishments are also from Authentique.  The stamp is from Stampin' Up.  I used my Cameo Silhouette to cut out the step card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Brown Sugar Challenge Blog - #146 Father's Day
Sister Act Card Challenge - #106-Always Anything Goes
Wags n' Whiskers Stamps - Lots of Layers
Chalk N Stock - Anything Goes, must use chalk

Sympathy Cards

Good Morning Friends & Welcome Visitors,

Sadly, I had to make two sympathy cards.  I decided that I would take a page from my friend Lisa's (Indy Mermaid) book and make the same card with different colors.

This is from SVGCuts Iris Folds Cards.

As you can see, it took a lot of paper to make these cards.  I used DCWV Fresh Floral Stack, Rustic Stack, Garden Party Stack and Botanical Stack.  The plain paper is Bazzill.  I chalked the outlines with my Powder Puff chalk from Quick Quotes and used pearls for just a small amount of bling.

I am entering these cards into the following challenges:

DL.ART - May Linky Challenge - Anything Goes
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge - More Than One Fold
Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Anything Goes With A Twist (Add Some Flowers)
Through The Craft Room Door - TTCRD - May 12-18 Anything Goes
Artistic Inspirations - Challenge #131 Anything Goes with a twist of swirls
Craft Your Passion Challenge - #261 Always Anything Goes

Thank you so much for stopping by my friends.  Sorry I have been so late posting these days, hopefully I will be back to a regular schedule soon.

Hugs & Kisses
