Penguin Pair

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

When I saw this Xcut die, I loved how cute it looked, but also how great it would be to make a dent in the scrap pile.  They were a bit fiddly to slot together, but after a couple attempts (these were my 3rd and 4th), it got a lot easier.  And yes, since the photo was taken I have given them rhinestone eyes, so they can see!


Card: Black, White and Smokey Slate scraps
Tools and embellishments: Large 3d Penguin die from Xcut

The die isn't actually that large, as the birds stand just over 4" tall, and belly to wing tip (uncreased) they are just over 3 1/4".  Regardless, they are SO cute!

Challenges...
#311-312 AG at Pixie's Snippets Playground
#49 AAG at Polkadoodles
#273 Anything but a card at Brown Sugar

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

End of Term Blog Hop at House of Cards


Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

It's the 1st of December (yikes!) so that means it's time for the end of term blog hop at House of Cards, and here's the inspiration image...


Here's my first card using the wonderful Heck the Halls digi stamp set from sponsor MHKDesigns


I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers, and added the bling and burlap from the inspiration image.

Challenges...
AG at TTCRD
AG at Pixie's Snippets Playground (burlap)
AG at Polkadoodles

And my second card using Christmas Tree (1) from sponsor Digistamps4Joy


I subbed the wood paneling from the image for brick, and inadvertently rotated it, imitated the colors, then added a burlap thread before adding the image.

Our other sponsors are... Imagine That Digistamp and Beccy's Place

Now, please do hop along with us

Vertical Butterflies

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Today's card was inspired by one of the recent challenges at Mrs A.'s Butterfly Challenge, where the theme was "vertical," and indeed I created the card during the challenge, but am waaay too late to enter it.  OOPS!  But the center backing panel and all those butterflies were a great way to make a tiny dent in my scrap drawer!


Here's a close up of the dimension...

Card: SU's watercolor (I'd intended for the natural lines in the card to add another vertical element, but cut the panel the wrong way!), Rich Razzleberry and Soft Sky
Tools and embellishments: Sue Wilson's Finishing Touches Cascading Butterflies, and CE pearls

Challenges...
#307-308 AG at Pixie's Snippets Playground
AG at TTCRD
