Penny Black Saturday Challenge-A winner!!!





Mid Way Reminder

Use Scraps or optional Anything Goes!










I did it...I cut up my scraps that I had been hoarding forever!!! This paper was some of my favorites from My Minds Eye. I have always admired the pretty quilt cards so I thought what better way to use up my scraps!

For this card I used a wooden stamp named A Winner! and a quilt card cut file named Bear Paw Quilt Block for the base.  I colored the image with copics and used my ScanN Cut2 to cut it out. 

The sentiment and banner are a Simon Says set that I use all the time because it is so versatile!

Such a simple card-and a perfect way to show off my hoarded paper! 

I hope you will share your Penny Black Creations with us this month!

The Love Bugs- Treat Mobiles!




LVE    BUG




I adore these little love bugs!  This was a freebie cut file named Treatmobile from Simply Crafty SVG's.

I enjoyed cutting these out  and putting them together...all 24!
Don't you just love these little eksuccess heart headlights?
And the heart taillights with the cute little license plate? I cut out words from some Pebbles paper and they worked perfectly for the license plates. 



I filled them with some Valentine candy and will be setting them on my coworkers desks on Valentines Day. It has been a long spell since I have gotten to make fun little treat boxes so I enjoyed making these...I liked putting these together while watching the Winter Olympics. Kept me busy!

Male Valentine-Groot



I am Groot!





I saw Guardians of the Galaxies last year and oh so loved little baby Groot.  I decided to work on my tracing skills in my Silhouette Studio software.  Now-- I got it all done and then never cut it out.  The other day I was snooping around my files and rediscovered Groot!  I decided he would make a cute Valentine card for my son. I googled Groot clip art and trace the image and made it into layers for a card. I added a couple cute little die cut leaf branches and an eksuccess polka dot heart.

HMFMC 258-Love -Fortune Cookie Says

Our NEW challenge at HMFMC

***ANYTHING GOES***
  (using any House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image )

or

LVE
  (using any House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image )




Tis the season of  L♥VE..

For my project today I used:

and






I colored Mudpie with copics (Mudpie-E00, 11 and R20 and E31-37) and the fortune cookies(Y 21 and YR 21,12,14, and 27) the Ground is (RV02,11)and cut it into a smallish tag. The stamp is pretty big so I had to enlarge my take out box so the image looked in proportion! I know it is hard to tell, but the box is now 4 inches tall and 4.5 inches wide-big enough for a whole bag of candy or perhaps a pair of rolled up socks maybe?

I added a fun little die cut sentiment to the front of the box and tied the tag on with Doodlebug twine-I love that stuff!!! Around the bottom of the box I added a little Recollections washi tape for good measure. 

I actually made two of these...just to get a head start on my Valentines projects!





I am sharing with the following challenges:

Craft Challenge #451-Love/Valentine 1/24
Crea Chicky's Challenge #17-Valentine 1/27

Penny Black Saturday Challenge-Anything Goes... Winter Illumination









Mid Way Reminder

Anything Goes!




I knew if I did not finish this card...I would loose all the parts and pieces I had ready to go.  Of course, it was meant to be finished and sent last month, but hey, that's another story!

I was a little stumped on how to use this stamp set as the window has a row of bricks around it, but not enough to complete a background. What I did was cut the window out and drew in building siding to complete my scene...Worked pretty slick. I am pretty sure that trick was inspired by Sandy Allnock-she is amazing!

I also drew in the ground and added glitter to it. I finished off the scene with a fun lamp post that is included in this Winter Illumination stamp set, and several little critters from Holly Day Critters and Jolly Friends. Transparent sets are perfectly sized to add to little scenes like this!

I put this scene together and debated whether to add snow flakes or not...a lot of work if I didn't like it. I fretted for about a minute and just went with it LOL! I am glad I did. Stamped pieces were cut out with my ScanNCut2. Although I only use it  to cut out stamps, it has more than endeared itself to me!


I hope you can find time to join our January Challenge! Take a hop over to the blog (link at the top) and peek at all the wonderful inspiration shared already!

WOYW?W








You can blame this post on April Story...she came to visit me today and she lead me back to WOYW?W- What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday! I haven't shared my workdesk with Julia in over 3 years! Oh my! For those newer to my blog, Miss Julia shares a pic of her crafty work desk (and encourages you to share a pic too) each Wednesday and has for over 8 years! 


Actually I am stalling...

 I took a vacation day today and designated it as Project Clean House! I must get all my holiday decor put away! But first I gave myself one hour to play on the computer-and look what happened!

Today my desk looks pretty much the same as always, although today I am prepared to do book work for my Dad as well, that explains the piles of papers I 'organized' last night. You can see a few new pictures in place and the ever present big cup of crushed ice and a big roll of vinyl transfer tape on the floor by my chair.  At the end of my desk you can see a wooden sign I just stenciled for my Dad-waiting for a coat of stain-maybe that will happen today if when I get my chores done.......pop over and say hello to Julia if you have a few minutes!

House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge ATG or Winter









#257

Our NEW challenge at HMFMC

MIDWAY REMINDER

***ANYTHING GOES***
  (using any House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image )

OR  

WINTER
  (using any House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image )





Oh my-the things I went through in order to get this stamp! I went to a Holiday open house at a Craft Store about 90 minutes from my home and stood in line in the cold and rain-mainly because I had my eye on this stamp! And...I am so glad I did-it colors up beautifully and can certainly be multi-purpose for winter and Christmas, depending on the color you use. It is one of those stamps that just catches your heart when you see it. Do you have a favorite stamp that sucks you in like that?





I colored this image with copics and stamped the sentiment from the clear House Mouse set named Hoppy Moments. I colored the sky blue and then 'scribbled' around with my copic blender pen to make the clouds. I also added some glitter on top of the branches to finish off the adorable scene. I enlarged this Snowflake Frame from the Silhouette Store and used it for  my card base-giving it a little touch of distressing around the edges.
