A-maze-ing birthday

Hi everyone!  I've been MIA lately.  I've still been making cards occasionally since we moved but not as much as I'd like.  I have a new job and I'm getting used to my new schedule!  I made this card for this week's Featured Stamper challenge on SCS.  This week's lucky lady is MiamiKel4, congratulations Kelly!  She has a great gallery and I chose to CASE this card, changing the theme, I added a sentiment to the side, colors and I didn't use sequins or ribbon.  This card is made from the latest MFT card kit.  I had so much fun making this card!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

so very thankful

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for a couple of challenges.  First, this week's Featured Stamper on SCS.  Congratulations to PaperCraftBoutique!  She has a great CAS gallery!!  I chose to CASE this card, changing the stamps (I used my GKD Old Country Roses set by Claire Brennan), added a layer, and did not do the ombre technique.  My card is also for a former Stamp TV challenge by Cat "I can see clearly now".  We were to use acetate or vellum.  I heat embossed the sentiment on a strip of vellum.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Puppy Love

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks MFT card challenge and today's Way to Use It challenge on SCS, Puppy Love.  I thought the sketch was a great one and perfect for this adorable puppy from MFT's You Make My Tail Wag set.  I watercolored the puppy with Gathered Twigs and Walnut Stain for the body and Hickory Smoke for the nose.  I watercolored the dish with Worn Lipstick Oxide ink.  The background and flag panel were stamped with Worn Lipstick Oxide ink and then sprinkled and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

X-Stitch Birthday

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  I thought it was a great sketch, but I had to work hard for it!  LOL!!  I just received this new stamp set, Stitched Roses from Waffle Flower.  I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it, besides stamping, I am a cross stitcher and have been for many many years, so of course I had to have it!  I didn't have trouble lining things up, but the acetate sheet moved on me a few times, which of course I didn't notice until I had already stamped so I wasted a few sheets of paper!  The sentiment is from Simon Says "It's Your Birthday!" set which I thought went perfect with the roses!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!
