Madera Corners

This is my last card until Monday. It is for the Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers, Peggy aka jasonw1. Wow! Does she have a gallery full of beautiful cards. I decided this is the one I wanted to case. I love white on white cards.

 My flower really is white although looking more creamy than it is  and it does have a little bit of color on the leaves.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I can't believe it is supposed to be 54 degrees tomorrow here in my area of AL...and lots of rain. That's what I call an ugly May weekend. What is going on with the weather???????? Maybe there will be a miracle and it will change.

From Our Nest


Who can believe May is here already? It really doesn't seem like it because it has been a cool, rainy Spring. Rain, rain, go away...I want to work in my yard and it seems to be so ugly on weekends when hubby is home to help. he ordering that rain? LOL

Shirley Quarry is our hostess for the month of May at CCEE Stampers and is bringing us some fun challenges. This week's challenge is Make it Shimmer. As you can see, or maybe you can't, I have shimmer on the center of my flowers. That is gold Stickles and I must say they aren't shimmering much in the photo, but they are looking pretty good in real life. I also put glossy accents for a bit more shimmer on the bird's yellow wings...not showing at all. Sorry.

I did have fun coloring my image which is a digi from Digital Two for Tuesday, taken from The Buddy Magazine. I tried to make my birds look like male and female red winged black birds. After coloring, I sponged around the image in blue.

We hope you'll join us this week and let your card shimmer and sparkle. Just add your card with the inlinkz tool. Happy stamping!

Love at Christmas

Whew! What a day. I made a card and .........well, let's just say I did it ALL WRONG (not this one). I got that straightened out and here I am uploading my card for the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #59. It is a fun sketch challenge.

This is an easy card and I now have one more in my Christmas stash.

I'm trying to figure out why my tiny, bottom gemstone looks larger than the others when it isn't.

My card is also entered into the Simon Says Stamp blog challenge-Anything Goes
