Make It Monday Challenge # 8

Make It Monday #8: Ink Blending Techniques

 Well, this is one of the cards I came up with for this weeks challenge. Not quite my style but its fun to try to learn new techniques. Maybe I should have blended it a little better.
Just wanted to share. My granddaughter was featured in a book calendar.     I AM  BEAUTIFUL 2011/CAL Since it's a book we were not sure what month or page she would be onShe ended up on the week of her parents tenth anniversary, I thought that was kinda neat. Delaney is one of 5 soon to be one of 6, OH MY! I happen to think my daughter is supper-mom, my son in law is also supper dad and fireman.
 This is the page she is on.  Delaney has Downs. We say she has many ABILITIES, not disABILITIES. We are so Blessed  to have ten grandchildren.  Good thing we had our children very young.  Because we need a lot of energy..Off topic it's going to be 90 degrees  here today!

March 2011 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop and Challenge

 Hello, and  Happy Friday to everyone.  The challenge for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop, is to use embroidery  thread any way we choose. So I choose to just use it as an outline of sorts. I just used  a glue pen and adhered it to the card. Everything I used was PTrey but the ribbon. I  stamped all the buttons with any PTI stamp I had. 
 Company most of the day so I had to hurry and get this posted. Take Care and have a great weekend

Clean & Simple Card

For this simple card I used PTI cardstock ,white and raspberry fizz. The die and sentiment are PTI  Love Lives Here . I also used the sm. scallop PTI die. Twine and some Basic ribbon.

Thinking of You ***Maryellen***

My younger sister passed away from cancer over a year ago. She would always buy kitchen towels and send them to whom ever  she thought about when she bought the towel. We found out at her funeral just how many people she bought towels for. LOTS. When I saw this stamp after she passed , it screamed her name.  Had to have it. Just wanted to share.  Take care.

Using Some Old Supplies

I made this over the weekend . I just wanted to take out some things I haven’t used in a while. This punch is from Martha Stewart .  I cut it off the paper then doubled it. Oh I did use my new button die I just got in the mail. I needed a little black in the middle , so I used my Papertrey Ink polka dot borders, for just a little black.

This is the little  stamp die that comes with the cuttlebug, the other dies are Papertrey Ink white card stock is also Papertrey Ink, grid squares are Stamping Up.

Take care and have a good day!

Color Challenge


This is a color challenge , so I thought I would give it a try. I felt a bit limited to what I could make as this is not my color choice. Not too crazy about how it turned out but Im going to enter it anyway. 
I cant wait for my Postmarks stamp set from Papertrey Ink to come in , so I used what I had . Papertrey Ink set....Aloha...because it had this cute postcard.

Signature Greetings ( one of my favorites )and Men of Life for the boat.Then I just used the inside edge of my scissors, just like in the video.
