Kraft & Red

Hi all,
I created this card for the Free For All Challenge over at Gina K. The challenge is to use Kraft and Red. I did add a cream color to the mix as well, as I needed an offsetting color and since the card base is cream, I went with that.
I used the sketch that was over at IC Sketches Challenge blog as inspiration.
The image is from Graphique. I love their images and you can size them to use on just about anything.
Anyways, here is my card....
Hope you like it. Have a fabulous day.

Second card finished today...

Hi all,

This is the second of 2 post today. I was able to finish up this simple but elegant and fabulous card. I have entered it into 3 challenges.

The first challenge is Lexi's Creations Challenges. The challenge is "Pink". I love most pink color combinations, so this one was an easy one to work with.

The next challenge is over on Pink Gems. The challenge is "Christmas with heart". I thought this snowman with a heart on its chest was perfect for the challenge.

The next challenge is over on Secret Crafter. The challenge is "Anything but Sparkly". I added a gem to the single snowflake but that was not enough, so I added the additional splash of gems along the bottom. I think it turned out so elegant and classy. Oh, and adorable for the snowman, lol....

Hope you all like it too. This card is for sale here...

Off to bed....good night.


Hi all...

It's been another one of those days...I have had some time after I finished my school work to finish up one card I was working on and complete another one.

The first card that I finished up was this cute little Magnolia card. I was able to enter this card into several challenges. Here is the list:

First challenge is on the Magnolia lovers challenge blog. The challenges is distressed. All the edges are distressed on the cardstock, I even inked the doiley.
The next challenge is on the One stop Craft challenge. The challenge is Anything Goes"
The next challenge is on Digital Tuesday. The challenge is "Fall Colors".
The next challenge is on Fussy & Fancy Challenges. The challenge is "Fall Colors".
The next challenge is on Stampin for the Weekend. The challenge is "Autumn Colors".

I hope you enjoy this card. I was really impressed, this is the first time that I worked with the doiley's. I loved the look they give the card. I found a dealer on Ebay that is international and I bought the doiley's on Friday and had them in my mail box yesterday, wow, that was great, perfect timing to use on this card.

This card is for sale here....

Until next post....Julie

Another day...another challenge...

Hi everyone,

I was able to get to only one card today. I do have one started but not finished. Hopefully that one will be finished tomorrow....fingers are crossed...

Anyways, I found this (new to me) graphics company on Etsy. Their name is Graphique. You can find their Etsy shop here. They have some very cool graphics that you can resize to fit a card. I bought a few and got to play with one is my card with the new image....

It is a And they lived Happily Ever After image of a castle. I paired it up with black and silver script paper with some shiney silver cardstock and ribbon, added 2 glittery chipboard swirls. On the image itself, I just wanted a little light color and maybe some sparkle so I used the sparkly chalk. I was going to spritz it with the glittery spritz but since the move I have not been able to find that. Funny, I think I am all unpacked with my supplies....I will look again tomorrow for that.... I entered this card into two challenges.

The first challenge is over at Sketch and Stash. Tha challenge is a "Sketch".

The next challenge is over at ABC Challenge Blog. This is their first challenge since they re-opened. The challenge is "Anything Goes".

This card is for sale here.

Enjoy your Happily ever after.....

Just a quick card that I have been working on. I love the collage look, how about you?
I added ink to the image before I found the patterned paper, then realized it might be a bit hard to locate paper to match.....then I found this one and it matches perfectly (wiping the sweat off my
