Hello  dear friends! I have a quick post today to share my card  for the Mojo Monday challenge:

(A2: Stamps:  Verve (Making a Statement); EF: Cuttlebug; DP: Farm House (Fair Skies); Ribbon: Really Reasonable Ribbon); Star: Heidi Swapp)

This is another AnyHero card for Operation Write Home. I like the variation on red, white and blue on this paper so I chose it for this card along with Kraft borders. I used Antique Linen on the star.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! 

Here is a link to  the challenge in case you want to share in the fun!!!

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy crafting!

Hello dear friends! I have another card to share today and it is for the Art Impressions challenge. I just love Art Impressions stamps! They are so very funny. The challenge is SENTIMENTS ONLY and since I have just started working on my AI stamp collection, I don’t have many sentiments, but I came up with a card anyway LOL. 

(A2; Stamps: Art Impressions (Buzzard Set), Fiskars (Dotted Flourish); Ink: Distress Ink; EF: Cuttlebug)

I really wanted to use this set because it is new to me, but since we can’t use an image, I just used the sentiment and added the flourish and some Distress Ink. I finished off with a little stitching, some rhinestones and two blue borders.

Hello dear friends!  Here is my card for the Operation Write Home Mid-Month Throwdown. Once again I have made an AnyHero card because there is no one better to show my gratitude:

(A2: Stamps: Verve (Bountiful Harvest), Inspired by Stamping (Hydrangea and  Ahoy Matey), Fiskars (Dotted Flourish))

I love the new schedule at OWH! Instead of a mid-week throwdown, they are doing a mid-month one. I never seemed to get around to the Wednesday challenge.

This weeks sample card is gorgeous and is made by Joanne Travis whose blog is Sleepy in Seattle. I decided to CASE her card keeping the elements, but placing them differently. I stamped the pumpkins three times and paper pieced them to add dimension. I also colored with Copics. I first stamped them on the card panel for placement and so the little squiggles would show without being fussy cut. Then I stamped them twice more to color and fussy cut. Since I was fussy cutting, I didn’t have to mask (yeah), which always seems to take a couple of time for me to get like I want it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Here is a link to the challenge and a photo of the sample card so you can join in the fun!

Mid-Month Throwdown: Gratitude
