Bye Bye Cancer

Hello, Today was a big day for my Hubby! It was his final day of treatment for Prostate Cancer. YAY! I guess I should say it was a big day for me too! It has been somewhat of a rocky road, as he (very unfortunately) was not the only thing the past 7 months that I had to focus on, but we got through it, and it’s time to BEGIN AGAIN! Now that hubby is allowed to ride a bike again, (restrictions from his treatment plan), those are the words (BEGIN AGAIN) he chose to put on the back of his bike. Hubby has been putting signs on his bike for the past 16 years or so. They always reflect what is going on in the world or how he is feeling about something.

Here is the inside of the card. I had a great time making this card for him and mixing stamp companies. I thought it was a fun theme with Halloween just days away too.

Card Details: Stamps- Monsters-My Next Stamp, Ghosts-Miss Ink Stamps, Sentiments were done on the computer and most were stamped with a speech bubble from SU. I used Copic and Prisma Colored Pencils as my medium. I stenciled the wallpaper for inside the house with Oxide inks.

I can’t take any credit for the front of the card…I saw this idea HERE! I had a happy accident though, I messed up the left-hand side of the door and had to cover it, so I made a door jam or molding. I think it worked out well.

I am going to share this card over at Cupcake Inspirations where they have a monster Halloween-themed photo that depicts my monsters perfectly!

Thanks for letting me share my news with you!

Take care of yourself and others as life is uncertain, Nanc’

More Silly Monsters

Hello, I hope this post finds you well, and a Happy Valentine’s Day to you too. I can’t seem to get enough of these sweet monsters and hope you don’t mind me sharing them once again. I think this should be the last time as I have since cleaned up my studio and filed them away. Over at The Paper Players, we have a color challenge starting that works perfectly for Valentine’s Day if you are still in that groove. If V-Day is not your thing anymore, the Design Team has done all sorts of types of cards with these colors. The colors are listed in the graphic below.

Here is another angle!

This time I am also linking up with the fun over at Inkspirational where the word is Hearts.

A few card Details: Monsters are from Your Next Stamp. I used a bit of Copics and Prismas to give them a little color. The heart background stencil is from Honey Bee Stamps and called Fluttering Hearts. They come two to a pack. The Speech bubble is from Stampin Up. I made the punning greeting on my computer.

For more inspiration, be sure to visit the rest of the Design Team!

A Monster Crush

Hello, I hope you are doing well! Today over at Just Us Girls Vicki has selected the word, Valentine. I have two cute monster cards for you today that were so much fun to create. These monsters just make me smile and they are from Your Next Stamp. I used a bit of Copics and Prismas to give them a little color. The heart background stencil is New to me and is from Honey Bee Stamps and called Fluttering Hearts. They come two to a pack. The Speech bubble is from Stampin Up. I made the punning greeting on my computer.

I am also linking this cute little monster over at Happy Little Stampers where the CAS challenge is Love Is in the Air and at NBUS as my stencil is brand new and never been used. I think the taller monster represents me quite well. LOL

Please join us this week at Just Us Girls where we have a new guest joining us. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome, Leslie Turner. Leslie, we are glad to have you along with us. The team has some really great Valentine-themed work over on the blog to check out!

Take care and happy creating, Nanc’
