Crafter's Compainion - Challenge Post #2

I am having a crafty weekend.  I have been competing projects right and left.  I know 3 post in one day is a record for me.   

I once again have another card for the Crafter's Companion USA Challenge Blog.  The challenge is Fall colors.  You still have a couple day's to get your project in.  They are giving away a great prize this month.

Visit the Crafter's Companion Store

This time I used my Strawberry Kisses - Flower Power stamp as the focal piece.  

Hope you have had a crafty weekend too

Tim's tags of 2012

So I got brave enough to try this months tag from Tim Holtz.  

It really did not turn out as I had planned.  I had to redo the Boo color because the black was just too dark for me.  I also got a chance to use my new Fiskars squeeze punch.  The kitty is one of the Holiday punches just released.

If time allows I will try next months and see if I can do better.

Hope you are having a crafty weekend.

Greeting Farm

This is my second post of the day.  I have been a busy card maker .  Over at Splendid Stamping with The Greeting farm they have 2 challenges every week.  One is Double take Tuesday and the other is Farm Fresh Friday.  I have made cards for both.

The Double Take Tuesday Challenge this week is a color challenge

Any one who knows me say say that I am obsessed with Purple.... But I always seem to wear green.  So, this is an easy challenge for me.

The Farm Fresh Friday Challenge is Clean and Simple. 

Thanks for stopping by


October Crafter's Companion Challenge

October Challenge is Fall colors over at the Crafter's Companion USA Challenge Blog.    What a perfect way to showcase this fun S.W.A.L.K. - Best Pals Sta,p.  I received a pad of the Core'dinations Tillie Dot Spotted card stock and used it for the card base.  This card stock was fun to use because I sanded the dots to  expose the core color.

Hope you enjoyed this card.

Farm Fresh Friday 9/28/12

It is that time again.... The Farm Fresh Challenge over at Splendid Stamping with the Greeting Farm.   

This weeks challenge is "PINK"  

As you can tell, I have been totally obsessed with my new Riley stamp.  
This stamp is getting a good workout.  

Now that I am looking at the picture, I think I could have added more pink.... but it is what it is.  

thanks for stopping in.
