Merry Christmas from under the sea

The most recent Dutch Dare card challenge asks that we choose from an assortment of provided digis, to complete the pearls and swirls challenge. Well , I decided to do the mermaid in holiday colors just to show you that a stamp doesn't have to have a singular purpose ie.,, mermaid for a summer card. This little gal is bringing joy from the sea!  Fished up from over at The Stamping Boutique and incorporated into this weeks' design ,here she is. I hope you like her and she encourages you to play along with us @Dutch Dare.

Monday night class

I had an amazing class tonight , 33 card kits made and 33 card kits sold. Yes , that means there were as many people at the class. Wow, it was exhausting but a lot of fun. I had a wonderful group of women to share the evening with, and make a card.
I appreciate them all being there , here's to another Monday like tonight.
Thanks everyone.

Fall has definitely arrived ( in my cards), the following is my new card for Dutch Dare using sweet and sassy stamps. I colored the pumpkin patch with prismacolor pencils and used kraft paper and scraps that I had. The little pumpkins on the side border are from a stamp -LUNI.
This is a sketch challenge, which I like because it kind of takes the thinking out of the picture. All you have to do is find paper and a stamp.
Please join in with us over at Dutch Dare and let us see what marvelous creation you can concoct.
Thanks for stopping by , please feel free to comment.

cards cards and more cards

I have had an awesome weekend. My downstairs is 90% complete, the floors and kitchen look great. It looks like a new house . Removing the dropped ceiling in the kitchen and cabinets opened the downstairs up. and having a uniform floor through most of the first floor made a great difference. So while they were finishing up , i made a handful of cards and prepped for my class. It feels good to get something done in my craft room .Here is a little of what I did.These are stamps from

Just a little bit of what I enjoy doing , hope you enjoy looking.

After doing a little bit of alot of different crafts I have gone back to what I have always loved. I enjoy coloring , drawing and designing pictures. And thanks to the love and (prodding) of my DH, I am where I belong and am more happy .
