Anything Goes Challenge - Simon Says Stamps

Today, I have a card for the Anything Goes Challenge at Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge.

Using metallic gold cardstock, I die cut and embossed leaves and a bow with dies from Spellbinders. I also used the gold stock to create a mat the front panel on my card.

To create more depth and dimension for your cards, try adding a mat behind the front panel.

There are still a few days left if you want to join in the fun with a card of your own. Here's a link to the rules.

Thanks so much for stopping in. I'll look forward to seeing your cards.

A Hug in a Mug

          My favorite thing about coffee is having a cup every morning with my husband. It's my favorite part of every day.

     To make this card, I drew up a quick coffee-to-go-shape template. I cut a card base from white cardstock. I used mint and ivory cardstock to cover my cup. Using Casual Fridays' coffee-sentiment stamps, I stamped my label and sentiment tag with blue dye.

     I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

DCWV Stack-a-holic Challenge Sept. 2018

     Today, I have a card for the Stack-a-holic Challenge over at DCWV. I used their Botanical Beauty Stack to create my card. I'm hoping this photo comes through clearly for you. It is navy blue and gold. It's reading a little black on my laptop. Definitely blue on my phone. You know how hard it is to photograph shiny things, I'm sure.

     There is still plenty of time to get a card of your own into the challenge. You have until 11:59pm on September 18th. You can find the rules and other details on the DCWV, Inc. Facebook page.

     Here's a copy of the sketch we had to work with this month. I'm sure I'll use this one again and again.

DCWV Stack-a-holic Challenge, August 2018

Daddy was such a good sport letting me bathe him in my new
baby doll's bathtub I got for Christmas 1962 at Pop and Grannie's.
     Today I have a layout for the Stack-a-holic Challenge over at DCWV. I used the Country Floral stack to create my layout. You can vote for your favorite layout here: https://www.facebook.com/DCWVInc/
I wish I had made my blue squares and rectangles bigger. I think it would balance better with the size of my photographs. I'm sharing it anyway.

     I love the memories this page brings to my mind. I had so much fun with Dad in my early years. We came back around to each other a few years before he died.

     Hope you are having a great day! Thanks for stopping in.

     Here's a copy of the sketch we had to work with. I'll use it again.
