Hi Friends,


Here is what I used to make this card:
in the metallic : pink shade
You could win one of these sets in the 
pink/red challenge that I have going for one more week





As I told you yesterday, I had to make another sympathy card.  I used the Cri-Kits gel pen holder and pen for the image along with coredinations textured card stock  layering and some stickles. The stamp is from Stampendous  and the background paper is from My Minds Eye. The base card stock is PTI. The pen glided beautifully over the textured card stock.

Good Afternoon Friends,

Met with my knit wit group today and more sad news, one of my friend's husband passed away.  He had been battling lung cancer for awhile and  is now free of the pain.  You will be seeing yet another sympathy card very soon. :-(

Now onto a happier note, Be Mine ...... I used all Kraft card stock for this card  and an action wobble on the heart. I love how this card came out.  I  am so glad it does not look like a Christmas card which is what I thought might happen, given that I was using red and green.

I used PTI for the base
and all the other papers are recollections from Michael 's, an action wobble,  a heart punch and hemp






 There is the action wobble


Challenges:
Kraft journal: all Kraft
Pink Elephant: hearts
Simon says: AG
Sisterhood of crafters:heart



Have a blessed evening, Diana

This weeks  challenge at LSP is for you to make a  "Birthday" card,
project or layout

Link up at  my friend Karen's blog Little Scrap Pieces


This is the first time I have ever made a double bow. I don't know if there is a right way, but I was pretty happy with it. I am always inspired by my friend Sherrie, of Sherrie scraps with passion.  I have coined her in my mind the bow Queen.  She is awesome with making bows and my friend Lisa is just as good. Although, I call Lisa the Spellbinder princess. The ribbon of course is from Karen and the little round things are called skittles,  my friend Carri  made those and sent me some for Christmas.  Thank you Carri. Click on the link above and play along with our Birthday challenge.

Hi Friends,

 This has really been a tough week.  On Saturday one of my knit wit friends, who had been in the hospital was not doing to well, the next next day I got a call from another knit wit saying she was really having a hard time breathing and was just diagnosed with asthma. Two hours later I got a call that she was home with the Lord.  Life is so short.  On Wednesdays I meet with my knit wit group and we had a small memorial there for her along with our regular knitting session. Our friend's (who passed away) son and his wife showed up to listen in and be part of what his mother experienced every week with us.  We all laughed and cried during this time of sharing what his mother meant to each and everyone of us.  and we still got some knitting done. 

Her memorial service will be Saturday at 1:00- ( for those of you know Janet and are going e-mail  or call me, I will get  the info to you).

On a more personal note I had an MRI last night for my shoulder injury I am still waiting for the results I will keep you all up dated-- They said I was the most still patient they have ever had--- I guess it is because I fell asleep in there (ha ha) -- it was so cozy.

Any way here is a card I made I love Valentine's day.

Good Morning Friends,

It is my day to show you how I play with Creative Inspiration Paints, products.  I say play because it is so much fun it certainly doesn't seem like work. I knew I was going to use the jeweled inspirations from the beginning.  I really wanted my card to look like a FIESTA, I think  with the Creative Inspiration products, It certainly does





10 jeweled inspiration rhinestones around the  sound hole of the guitar


At the very top I mixed the silver resplendence (glitter) with glue and dropped it with a tool to look like silver dots



I did the same at the bottom, but decided I wanted a different color, so I painted them with  shimmering copper. Thank goodness it worked, This was the final step on my card




I used creative inspiration, jeweled inspirations (rhinestones), because they come with glue on them all I needed to do was use may Imaginesce tool to attach them.

Supplies  used:
PTI- Harvest gold
true black and Kraft
Ribbon - My craft spot cranberry
Punch: Ek success

Embellisments
10 jeweled clear jeweled inspirations
Resplendence silver glitter

Hi Friends,
I got the shredding started, when I say started, I did not realize how much shredding takes up a 33 gal garbage bag. I will let you know how many of those I fill up in the next few weeks. It is not fun and I do not want to do more than one 33 gal garbage bag at a time. I'm saving my shoulder for basic things like cooking, eating and art etc.  So I am finished for today. I did mange to stick to my goal and not jam up the shredded, yeah me!!!  I am also happy to have one bag out of the way.

I got to whip out a quick card for bitten by the bug today and my post for Creative Inspirations Paints for tomorrow-- You have to see that card I just love how it turned out. This one is kind of fun too definitely a dude card.




This is an A2 size card

I used the JT cartridge for the background paper cut at 3.8 and the lettering, cut a 1.5
I decided to put a black background behind the images so they would show up better. I cut them the same size and just off set them to give the dimensional look this was ans easy peeasy--But I think it has a great look thanks to the IMAGINE

challenges:
BBTB2: lettering

Happy Monday Morning,



Today is shred day for me. I have a ton of stuff I will be shredding and one of my goals is to not jam up the shredder, I tend to do that.  Try to keep hubby happy.
Our weather has turned around for the better we are warmer now, I love it, I forgot how much I do not like the cold temperatures. I can open the windows, get fresh air in the house.

On to my project, I made this cute as a button card, Using PTI and Creative Inspirations products and versamark inkand varied the MOJO sketch as I do quite frequently.
