Extremely Quick Thanksgiving Cards

Hello, I'm back with another couple quick cards to share. These are a couple of cards I made last weekend. I haven't made a single card this week. This week has left me totally exhausted. There is a mad rush at work to get construction project completed before the weather changes. I absolutely hate the massive amount of work this time of year. I did not have the energy to retake the pictures so forgive the blurriness. I plan on playing around with this new camera over the weekend and get it right! I am determined to figure it out one way or another.
On the first card the saying is from Kim Hughes, paper from LI and I believe the leaf stencil is from Dreamweavers. I added matching ribbon and a button to accent it. Simple, Clean and Elegant!
The second card was created using all Lasting Impression supplies with the exception of the chipboard saying which was part of a Target dollar bin find.

Enjoy your evening/morning and thanks for stopping by.

Turning 30 Stinks!

Good Evening, Tonight I thought I would share a card I made for someone very talented and dear to me.... We won't mention any names since it would only make me seem much older. It is so hard to believe my baby is 30! Makes you wonder where the years have gone.

For her card I cut out some chipboard numbers I had and covered them with so Lasting Impressions paper. Not having a skunk stamp I used a chipboard one from DCWV "Green Stack". The stamp is from Kim Hughes "What a Hoot" set.

Yes, Kathy 30 stinks but it is only a number!

Thanks for stopping by I hope you like my share.... Enjoy your evening!

MFT World Card Making Day - Challenge

I sure hope you all enjoyed WORLD CARD MAKING DAY! I know I did and I will probably be cleaning up from it for the next week. I only wish I had time to take on more of the super fun challenges over at Splitcoaststampers. I am not sure why, I was determined to take on a real challenge for me. Whenever pink is included in the description it's a challenge for me. It is one of those colors I just can't stand. After deciding on this challenge and having a lack of MFT stamps I downloaded their free digital set that Kim so generously offer for WCMD. The set is called "Think Pink". Having never worked with digital anything before this only added to my anxiety.... LOL This card took me forever! The challenge was to have pink, black white and some BLING.

See You Later Alligator

Good evening TGIF! I am so happy the weekend has finally arrived, this week has been awful both weather wise and at work, just awful. The card I am sharing today almost went to my boss today! I came so very close to quitting.

I recently received this template from Lasting Impressions and was surprised to find the perfect stamp in my stash to use with it. I had bought it years ago and finally got to ink it. Stamp is from Just For Fun. All papers are from LI. I distressed the edges and lightly inked them for a more worn effect.

If anyone was interested in buying any brass templetes, now is the perfect time. Lasting Impressions is reducing a large amount of inventory and offering them at 60% off.

Enjoy your evening, thanks for stopping by.

A Not so Spooky Halloween Card

Good Evening! Tonight I thought I would share an adorable batty card I made this weekend. This cute but classic looking Halloween card was super simple to make. The black and white paper from Lasting Impressions is one of my favorite. It adds just the right amount of black and white to give almost any card a sharp, clean look.
The bat template I used is another favorite of mine also from Lasting Impressions (L9619). The saying is a dollar bin find from Joann's. The rest of supplies are all Lasting Impressions.

Sorry for the short post, but I spent all evening picking up limbs and branches left from the last few days of high winds here . Now I am off to nurse my aching back:)

Have a good evening!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like today's share!
