Happy Saturday everyone.... I am posting this from work.... :) I made this card late on Thursday night. It is for a few challenges over at Splitcoast Stampers. Queen for the day challenge #QFTD48 - Becky (aka bigfootbecky) was crowned as our latest Queen. I cased this beautiful "Asian Flair" card of Becky's. It is also for the Ways to Use it Challenge - beautiful silhouettes only done with Black ink... And also for the Splitcoast fan club theme of the month 'Days in our Lives".
The bamboo image is from My Heart Stamps for You Stamps and the sentime is from Studio G. Designer paper is from My Minds Eye - Garden Vingenettes. Both image and sentiment were stamped with Versafine Onyx black ink and clear embossed.
Thanks for stopping in, Happy Stamping and creating,

The card below is the twins with the cards my DH and I received - congratulating us on the arrival of the twins.
Happy Tuesday everyone.... I'm a little late uploading my card today - I was babysitting my twin grand babies for about 5 hours. My sister, Valerie-Raye, and I brought the twins back to my house so that their Mommy could catch up on some much deserved sleep.
I made this card for the Teapot Tuesday challenge MMTPT133. Some of us will be sending our cards to Marie - the sister of a SCS/teapotter Philsmom (Fran). Marie is a quadriplegic as a result of progressive MS. We are hoping that our cards will bring a little cheer into her day. Marie loves owls - this was the theme of today's challenge.
Here are a couple of cards I made on Sunday for Splitcoast Stampers featured stamper challenge. Charlene (aka Willow01) is this weeks FS - #FS210. I cased two of her cards. Here is the first card I cased "Hello Friend" for the 1st card I made. A here is the second card I cased "Paper Tissue Heart". Charlene's SCS gallery is full of beautiful works of art.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day. My DH took me out for dinner and a movie... :)
This week over at Splitcoast StampersBev Barton was crowned "Queen for the Day". My grand daughter, Nico, was have a sleep over and wanted to make a Valentine's Day card for her Mommy and Daddy. Here is Bev's adorable card that we cased called "Cupid". Nico picked out the fun "Hogs and Kisses" stamp and the colours. She coloured the image by herself using Gramma's special markers. She cuttlebugged the pink panel with the heart folder, she crimped the pink middle panel. Cut out the nesty scalloped rectangle and with Gramma's help she sewed the card and made sure her fingers didn't get in the way of the needle :) She found the little red hearts on my stamping table and wanted to use them on the card. She glued them down and added Stickles to the three little hearts and the big heart one of the pigs is holding. She gave the card to her Mommy when she was picked up this afternoon - was her Mommy ever happy and proud of the card Nico made for her... :)
I cased this "Party Chick" card of Bev's. I loved the image and layout of her card. I didn't have her fancy lady, but I did have this fun Bugaboo Stella Sews image already coloured and ready to use. My SCS sister Pat Smethers sent me this hilarious sentiment in a birthday card. The designer paper is from a Martha Stewart 12x12 pack.
This week our card destination is to Kearney, Nebraska - to Sean, a young man battling testicular cancer. We were asked to bring, planes, balloons, kites etc.. anything that flys.
I had this wonderful airplane sticker in my stash and it worked perfectly for today's challenge and it's colours are close enough to this weeks colour challenge, night of navy, Cajun craze, daffodil delight. I just purchased the designer paper a couple of days ago - it came in a discounted paper pack from Michael's. The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Hedgehog Happiness set.
