Thoughts of You

I'm here to make a quick post this Saturday morning. My card is for the Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers. The queen is Susie aka PaperPunchScissors and I love her work. I chose this card to case. About the only thing alike is we both made a hinged filigree card.

For sure, this card was a test to photograph. I
barely have it standing on those fragile 'legs'.   Yes, there is a back to this card. If you look closely through one of the holes on the left side, you can see it. :-) I carried it outside to photograph instead of using my tent or card studio and I'm not so happy with the photo. White is a bit hard for me, anyway.

Off to a ball game trip later this afternoon. It's a night game, which I like best. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

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

Celebrate Christmas

Hi Friends.....My sis is still visiting and we're having a super time. We went shopping yesterday (all day) and I found this adorable snowman image at the scrapbook store. I couldn't wait to use it and sure enough not when I found the Merry Monday Christmas Card Club Challenge #76 this week to use a snowman. If you know me very well, you know a snowman is my FAVORITE image to work with. I placed him so it looks as if he is looking up at the Christmas tree and about to adorn it with a star topper.

I colored him with Copics, bought some tinsel to put around his fun hat and I added glossy accents to the ornaments.  The embossing folder is Spellbinders M Bossabilities Holiday Magic. Rest of recipe  is below.

My sketch is from a card I cased for the Featured Stamper this week on Splitcoaststampers. The stamper is Curt aka indycurt and this is the card I cased.

Splitcoaststampers also has a monthly Christmas challenge for Fan Club members. This month's theme is Silver Bells.....use silver, bells, or both. You may use silver cord, silver embossing, silver anything. My silver is the tinsel.
