Fit for a Queen

It's Friday again! How the time flies. I've worked in the yard this week and neglected the house. So, I'll try to make a short post and do a little housework. How boring!!

At Splitcoaststampers, the new Queen for the Day is Stacy aka Twinshappy. Here is the card I chose to case. Of course, I made a few changes. I know it is Spring but I'm using mums on my card. I suppose I can hold it until I can use it in the Fall season. I've had this image colored for quite sometime and thought it fit this card really well.

 Hope you all have a great weekend doing whatever you enjoy. I appreciate you coming by my blog.

My card is entered into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog-Anything Goes

Picnic Time


For the last challenge of the month at CCEE Stampers, Shirley gave the theme--It's A Picnic.
We could have certainly had a picnic around here for the last several days. We had a beautiful Memorial Day weekend and it continues with plenty of warm temps and sunshine. I'm loving it.
I've gotten a lot of yard work completed.

Not much to say about this one. I colored my digital image with Copics, stamped and cut out a little bee, and added my sentiment on Martha Stewart tags.

We hope you're in the mood for a picnic and will link your card using our inlinkz tool this week.

Most Special Night

Merry Monday #64-Christmas card challenge

Just making one Christmas card a week will put me ahead of the game when it is time to start making Christmas cards to send out. The stress will have to be less than normal and I'll be a happy stamper.

Sketch this week:

Of course, this is Christmas Eve night and so peaceful. I made a scene with a stamp from Gina K. Designs/Holiday Cheer stamp set. The trees were embossed using VersaMark and white embossing powder. For the star, I used VersaMark Dazzle and embossed with Stamp 'N Stuff jeweled gold embossing powder.

Rest of recipe:
Paper-Stampin'Up! night of navy and Georgia Pacific white
Ink-Stampin'Up! Night of Navy
Other Accessories-Sakura gelly roll pen (on trees and snow line), EK Success star punch
