Monthly Mix Challenge-Gina K

Hello, Today I am playing along with the Monthly Mix Challenge over at Gina K Designs where my lovely friend Barb is hostess. The challenge is to use an Image, Die-cut, and Sentiment on your project. Such an easy one!

Do you ever take a card just a tiny bit too far and wish you had listened to your gut when it told you to stop? Well, that is how I feel about this card. Everything was going well till I decided to make a mask of the hydrangea stamp and stamp the text in the background. Two things happened that I am not crazy about. First, I should have cut the white piece out of the middle of the flowers because now it looks weird because it has no text, and two, the color ink I chose for my words was just too dark. I wanted something a bit more subtle. But what’s done is done and you have to move on.

Card Details: Hydrangea-Gina K Designs, sentiment is also Gina K, the leaves EF is from ?, the word background is SSS. I used my Copics as my medium and a very small bit of Colored pencil on the leaves. I came back with a white gel pen for the center of the flowers. Sequins and string and I was done.

Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there! This is not my favorite holiday, so hubby and I are taking our bikes to St. Pete for the day! Should be a great distraction from missing my son!

Take care and happy crafting, Nanc’

Give Thanks

Hello, It’s Sunday so it means we have the next challenge starting at The Paper Players. This week the lovely Claire is our hostess for Theme Week and she has asked us to Give Thanks. I made a card very similar to this one last week for JUGS. I like them both but this is my fav.

I love playing along at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge and I have selected the center row-Thankful Sentiment, Free, and Any Color.

Card Details: This card is a CASE of this one Here! I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. The retired SU stamp set is called Colorful Seasons and the die set is called Seasonal Layers. The greeting is also from SU. This card also has many dimensionals.

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

Thankful!

I trust you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are enjoying the rest of your weekend with your family and or friends. My anticipation of having Thanksgiving without my nephew for the first time since his passing this summer turned out better than expected. My sister is so much stronger than I could ever imagine and she inspires me each and every day. We had a really nice visit and had lots of really good conversation while she was here. I am thankful for her and the rest of my siblings. And of course very thankful for my hubby and my son! 🙂
Now here are the cards I got to make on Wednesday, since we had the day off from school and it was raining. It felt good to have time to be creative again.

Have a blessed rest of your weekend!
