Another Girly birthday card

Here is one more of the birthday cards I needed to make for October birthdays.  This one is  for my daughter-in-law.  I chose this cute little fairy from LOTV.  I am going thru all my boxes of stamps and going to try to use each one at least once for something.  Might be selling some if I cannot get them used as no use keeping so many and never touching them.......and believe me, I have soooo many.  lol   Anyway,  this card is also made from left over papers from my scrap drawer.  I colored her with copics.  Again, as usual, the edges are inked and sewed.  I added stickles to the flower and the little seed pods she is blowing.  I also added stickles to the three heart brads at the bottom but forgot to get a photo of them before I mailed it off.  The half oval sentiment is from Whimsy die and stamp set.  The other sentiment banner is from a set I bought some time ago and cannot remember what company they are from.  Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by.  Hugs and prays for each of you.

Little Tilda Christmas Card

This is the card I made for the Christmas Challenge group I am in.  I am still trying to live up to my New Years vow to use my stash.  All the papers are scraps from other cards and such.  The little Tilda stamp I bought last year before Christmas and I think this is the first time I used her.  I used Nesties to cut the ovals and a Whimsy die for the sentiment.  I made the small solid red roses using a flower punch some time last year and decided I should use them too.  The other floral items are from Wild Orchid.  I even dug out my old Studio G stamps for the sentiment.  You ought to see my room now from all the digging around finding things I forgot I had.  lol  Anyway, Tilda is colored with copics.  And you can see that I inked and sewed the edges.  I am trying to decide if I should add a little stickles here and there but so far have abstained from that compulsion.  lol

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Hugs to all and may God always bless you.

For a very special sister!

I made this for my sister (even tho she married my brother to become my sister is beside the point! lol).  Then we are even closer than blood as we are sisters in Christ and you can't get better family than that!   Anyway, this is my first attempt at making a cascade card.  I saw a video on how to make them and thought it would be perfect for her.  She usually gets my first attempts at things.  lol  I chose this little Bildy stamp because she collects tea cups and I thought it was really cute.  All the papers are from my scrap drawer so still fulfilling my vow to use up some stash.  The video did not include the tag but I wanted to add a sentiment poem so decided the tag would work perfectly.  I loved making the cascade card and am planning to make some more for Christmas.  Thank you all so much for stopping by.  Hugs to all and God bless.

Birthday card

I love LOTV stamps and then one is no exception!  I colored her with copics and colored pencils.  All the papers are scraps from other projects.  As you can see I inked and sewed around the edges.  My friend Bev, and I challenged each other to use this sketch and this is what I came up with.  This card was made for my sister so hope she liked it.  The little tags are from my stash of old sizzlets.  Some times I find they a lot faster and easier to use than my cricut.  Am glad I did not rid myself of them when I thought I should.  lol  Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by.  Hugs and God bless.

More football

Here is a layout I made for a challenge group I am in.  It was a sketch challenge and this is my take on it.  This is my little grandson and his first year of contact football.  My three children went to school at West and he is playing for East.  It is kind of different having to root for the main rival my kids played against.  lol  He is in fourth grade so I better get used to as I feel there will be more seasons that I will have to root for East.  I think I have three more layouts and I will have this season done for him.  Then I think I need to move on to something for the grand daughters so I can use pink, flowers and frills.  lol  Thank you so much for stopping by.  Hugs and God bless each of you.

Finally scrapping some again!

I am so glad to be scrapping some again.  It has been an extremely long month but things seem to be settling down to some sort of least for the time being.  lol  The month of October is full of birthdays and I am behind on making cards but hopefully can catch up this week.  This is one I made for my youngest grandchild.....cannot believe he is already 6!  I did manage to get it done and mailed off today so hope he receives it on his birthday.  I used one of my favorite Bildy stamps.  I used some old old papers from my stash.  I am hoping he likes blue!  lol  I also made it an easel card hoping he will like standing it up.  He is such a funny little man and I sure wish I could be there to watch him celebrate his special day.

Anyway, thank you so much for stopping by.  May God watch over you all and keep you safe.
