Flourishes Gold

We decorated our Christmas tree today with sparkly gold and burgundy bulbs that I picked up a year or two ago. I love that color combo, so I used it for this week's Flourishes challenge to use Gold or Silver on a card.

I used the Flourishes set "Meet me under the Mistletoe" and stamped it with Burgundy ink on some sparkly paper.  My gold background paper is embossed with a Cuttlebug snowman folder.  After stitching the edge of the image layer and adding the ribbon and tag it still needed something, so I colored some greyish-blue pearls I had on hand with an R59 copic to make some berries. : )

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Interior Decorating


Hello friends!  Today's SNSS Digi Challenge is "Interior Decorating" so you need to decorate both the inside and outside of your card.  I used "Rhubarb's Autumn Day" on the outside of my card and then a sentiment from "Bear Sentiments" inside the card.  I like to leave room to write, so mine isn't too very fancy!

I hope you'll join us!!


Birthday Blog Hop!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to my stop on the Sweet n Sassy Birthday Blog Hop!  I have had the very great privilege of serving on both the digital and clear stamp design teams for Sweet n Sassy at different times over the last few years, and what fun it has been!  I'm thrilled to be participating in today's Hop!

Now, if you've followed my blog at all, you know that I *love* Rhubarb and Cocoa, but for today's special event I used another of my favorite digis... "Poppies".  I don't know that Poppies are ever pink, but I love the fact that I can color flowers any color and they still look good! : )  I colored the Poppies with copics and matted them, adding some stitching for texture.  The Scripture verse is from the digital set "Amazing Grace", and the "Praying for You" sentiment is from the clear stamp set "Poppies and Greetings".

Thanks so much for stopping by today and don't forget to leave a comment!  Why? Because Korin will be choosing a random commenter from 4 different blogs on the hop to receive a $15 store credit!  To be included in the drawings your comments must be left by midnight EST Friday, November 30th, so hurry, hurry, hurry!! : )  The winners will be announced on the SNSS Blog on December 1st at 8 am EST.  See you there!

A Progressive Challenge

Flourishes issued a progressive challenge yesterday....

Start with a sketch.  Use a monochromatic color scheme.  Use some designer paper.  Add some sparkle.  You could make 4 cards or just one.  I chose just one. : )  I used the Summer Blossoms and Autumn Blossoms sets, some retired SU dp, a little glitter and a single rhinestone (cuz it was the only one I had left!) and, of course, followed the sketch.  Thanks for stopping by today!

Thanksgiving Wishes

Isn't this Fall Arrangement digi pretty?  It was perfect for this week's challenge at the Sweet n Sassy digi challenge blog to make a Thanksgiving card.  I colored it with copics and used a card base that I found in my stash that was already prelayered.  I love it when that happens!

We have so much to be thankful to God for each day, don't we??  I'm so glad we still have a special day set aside to remind us of that, but I hope that isn't the only time we remember to praise Him for His goodness and mercy to us!!

Have a blessed day.  I do hope that you'll be able to play along with the challenge!


Birdie Brown SFYTT

Just a quick thank you note today using the sweet November digi from Birdie Brown and following this month's Sketch for You to Try for my layout.  The sentiment is from The Angel Company.

Thanks for swinging by today!

A Winter Bookmark

Welcome back!

Today's challenge on the Sweet n Sassy Digi Blog is to make anything but a card so I made a sweet little winter bookmark with my Pippin digi that I had resized to be a little smaller.  Don't you just love digis?  I seem to like things miniaturized.... even my dogs are small! -- so I really enjoy the fact that I can make my digis little. : )

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you'll be able to play along!!

10 Minute Thursday


Welcome back to a Flourishes "Ten Minute Thursday!"   Today's card looks a little more involved than last week's, but it is still perfectly doable in 10 minutes.  It has two things in its favor.  An easy sketch and sketchy coloring.  Are you ready??  Hop over to the Flourishes Blog for the details!
