Make It Monday #37

Hi everyone! I made a card for MIM challenge over at Papertrey Ink. The challenge is layered mats and frames. For my project I used one of the doily dies along with a tag it set and itty bitty birds and on my background I used the mehndi medallion stamp (love that set). If you would like more information on this challenge head over to Nichole Heady's blog at http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/ Have a wonderful Sunday!!

Yay it's finished!!

I finally finished my canvas from my Inspiration Showcase class with Jennifer McGuire. So fun!! I actually took this picture about a week ago. I still need to hang it in my craft room and once I do that I will take another picture. This class was a BLAST!! Jennifer really knows her stuff. I have been a fan of hers for years, so anytime I see that she is doing another class I sign up immediately!! This canvas is made up of several techniques that we can use on our cards or scrapbook pages. Love that.........

Thanks for stopping by today!!! :)

World Cardmaking Day 2011

Hi everyone, yesterday if you didn't know it was World Cardmaking Day!! So many blog hops so many great cards and such inspiration. I have made a few for different challenges. This first card is for over at http://lawnfawn.blogspot.com/
The challenge is to make a Thank you Card and actually send it out to someone!
My next card I made is for the OWH http://www.owhhomefrontblog.org/2011/10/happy-world-cardmaking-day.html The image is a digi freebie from Meljen http://meljensdesignsdt.blogspot.com/2011/10/owh-world-cardmaking-day-blog-hop.html
What a cute reindeer! I colored him with copic markers.

My next couple of cards I made for over at the classroom http://ellenhutson.typepad.com/the_classroom_new/2011/09/2011-world-card-making-day-challenge-blog-candy.html My first card is for the sketch challenge

I love how this card came out I took plain cardstock and stamped my hero arts out of print stamp with pearl paint and did a paint resist and then I cut them to 1-1/2 inch squares. I wrapped some twine around them. I used my doily die and my small dies in the middle. Added the butterfly's and the small tag.

My next card I made is also for over at the classroom http://ellenhutson.typepad.com/the_classroom_new/  this one is for the inchie challenge.

I had to do a Christmas card. I actually couldn't wait. I had all kinds of new goodies just waiting to be used. I colored my image with copic markers and some spica pens too, for a bit of glitter. I used my new papertrey sentiment. I love that reindeer ribbon I picked up at Michaels! 
I hope everyone had as much fun as I did this weekend being busy making cards and just relaxing!! Thanks again for stopping by.
