Today, I have a card for the Stack-a-holic Challenge at DCWV. I love the way this card turned out. I'm learning to use my Prismacolor pencils, and I must say that the higher price of these pencils are definitely worth it.
I used the Beach House stack to create my card. I'm especially fond of the
I have more cards today for the Kindness Challenge over at Stamp TV. I love this theme for this challenge and decided to make several more cards for my stash. My friends and family love digging through my stash for their favorites to take home. Thinking-of-you type cards are the ones I send most.
To create my patterned cardstock for this card, I stamped the flourish several times on white cardstock. Then, I trimmed it to fit as you see here. I added a strip of matching cardstock to set it off.
Next, I stamped and die cut the sentiment and adhered the "you" with foam tape. I used Blue Raspberry cardstock and ink from Gina K Designs on this card.
I used Grass Green cardstock and ink from Gina K Designs on this card.
Here are all the cards I made today. Once I had my design created, it was easy then to make more cards. Coming up with the design is the most time consuming part for me. If I really like a card I've made, then I usually make several.
I'd love to see your "Kindness" cards too. Here's a link to the challenge rules at Stamp TV - http://stamptv.ning.com/

I snuck a pin wheel that a dear friend gave me for my birthday a few months ago into my picture. She gave it to me so that I will always remember to have fun.

I was so honored to be asked to provide a sample card for December's sketch challenge on Bazzill's Facebook page.
I guess it's the rebel in me that makes me pick colors other than red and green for Christmas. I'm seeing lots of blues like I used on this card though. One year I used orange and turquoise. Another year I used black and silver.
I hope you'll enter your own card in the challenge. Here's a link to Bazzill's page where you can find the rules and a copy of the sketch.
Products used besides Bazzill cardstock -
embossing folder - the Paper Studio
snowflake die cut - ODBD
snowflake brad - the Paper Studio
sentiment stamp - Sweet 'n Sassy
Thanks so much for stopping in today. May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands, Pamela
I discovered this tiny rabbit next to my back patio. He was so tiny, it's a wonder I even saw him. I hope you can zoom in enough to see him hiding in the first picture. I kept blowing up the picture until I had what you see in the third picture.
I created this layout for the November challenge at DCWV. I used the last of the Home Spun Stack to make my page. I do wish DCWV would offer it again. It's my favorite of all time! It comes with the score-line texture and adds so much to my cards and layouts.
Check out DCWV on Facebook for the details and deadlines if you want to play along. Here's a copy of the sketch we had to work with this month.
Thanks so much for stopping in. Hope you have time to create a layout or card today.
May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands, Pamela
