Sneaking Around with Freshly Made #54 & Color Throwdown #211!

This is a top secret post...I feel like a little girl sneaking around and being really bad...you see, I should be packing the trailer as we're going camping this weekend, but I really wanted to create a card...and so...this will be a super quick post and details will follow if some one asks! Now the reason I say that is...well, I won't remember to add details when we get back (early onset dementia I think!!!!)...so I'll be throwing the ball into your court! 
I followed two fabulous challenges...loves these so much girls, thank you for giving me a starting point, heaven knows I need it...so pop in of Freshly Made & Color Throwdown, there is still time to play!!!

                         
Here are the two challenges...oh I had a blast, thanks again girls!
And my card..sorry to post and run, but Dean will be home in a couple of hours and I really need to get finished, this way we can pull out the minute he gets home...


Here are a few shots I took of our pond area yesterday...it is wonderful outside these days, warm and sunny, just the perfect fall days ~ thank you so much for stopping by today, sorry to rush you ~ enjoy your weekend and blessings to you and your loved ones!



and there is the back end of the trailer peeking around the corner back there...I'd better run! 
Thank you SO much for stopping by :-)

Merry Monday #33!!!

I have been wanting to join the Merry Monday Challenge on a regular basis, but life just won't seem to allow me the time....so when I do get to play along, I'm giddy like a little girl on Christmas morning ~ how fitting!!! And now that I see the sketch challenge, I realized that I forgot my bow at the top of my card...I sure hope that's okay Lesley! I really enjoy putting this together and it sparkles like crazy...although the picture doesn't do it justice at all!...I used my homemade shimmer mist using rubbing alcohol and Frost White Shimmer Paint, I misted the card and the ornaments! I also used my Dazzling Details on the ornaments on both sides, take a closer look and you'll see the sparkle...see!!!!!

 These ornaments where stamped twice, used my Framelits Dies adhered my gold cord and then kissed these ornaments together! Then I got out the bling!!! Love it! And as you can see below, these ornaments are free flowing on the card!


I masked the inside of my card and then sponged using Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso...still not sure how I feel about this part of the card, but it's on there now! What do you think???


Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope that I have left you with a little inspiration! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to drop me a line ~ Have a wonderful day!

Here is our youngest grandson wearing the same little coat that his Daddy used to wear...our boys love to play at grampa's pond....

Freshly Made & ColourQ#154


I really seem to be having a hard time getting into the fall groove...must be the summer like temperatures that we're having ~ 25C on Friday (77F) ~ so needless to say, the pool is still open and we'll be celebrating Angela & Kevin's Birthday's with a pool/BBQ Bash! But I did get some stampin in last night...my DH is so sweet, he came downstairs and watched his shows while I created, he said "I just want to be near you"...I'm blessed...

So the two challenges that I entered are...Freshly Made (love this blog) ~ the challenge was an Anniversary Celebration, and here is the sketch that I chose to use, but I flipped it on it's side
&
the Colour Q # 154! Now if you've never played along with these challenges or it's been awhile...jump over and have a peek!!!! Join in the fun ~ I had a blast!!!

 
My card is another Triple Time Stamping Technique....I'm in LOVE with this Technique and  just needed to create another and when I saw the colours from the Colour Q, I knew exactly what I was going to do ~ found the perfect sketch from Freshly Made (although AFTER my card was complete, I realized I forgot the long panel...sorry girls, I hope that's okay) and here is my card..and as you can see...I still own some retired items...actually, I need to confess...I have a ton of retired stamp sets, can't seem to part with them (my hoarding is organized, so I guess that's why I think I can get away with keeping everything)...enough chatting...here is my card...


I'm really pleased with the out come of my card ~ can't wait to create this with my girls next week! Hope I've left you with some inspiration...now run over to these challenges and give them a go! Enjoy your day...here is a quick shot of what I've been up to with my girls!


Tomatoes and more tomatoes...and I need to put another batch down this weekend!!!
Thanks SO much for stopping by, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
Enjoy your day!!!

Dynamic Duos #18 & FMS #50

What a Dynamic Duo...literally...and I actually stamped, played, and sang in my room today, I was constantly being pulled outside to play in my garden and my knitting needles were also calling me ~ oh...but my POOR neglected stamps and toys won the day...I had a blast!!! So here is the fabulous sketch from Freshly Made that I followed...and incidentally...there is still time to play, so run and have some fun!!!


And then I followed the color challenge over at Dynamic Duos...


and yes, I'm using a Red shade once again, which I seem to run from, I'm pleased with the out come of this card ~ it does look sweeter IRL ~ once I got going on this card, I realized that I actually don't own Poppy Parade Stamp Pad, so I improvised by using Ruby Red, but my CS is Poppy Parade ~ so here's my card...and I also really wanted to try Triple Time Stamping...and I LOVE this Technique! So did you notice...my En Francais is upside down!!! RMS ~ rusty mojo syndrome!


Well I had SO much fun with this sketch as well as Technique, I just had to create another card using a different color scheme and then I also stamped up my Everything Eleanor for the first time!!! I love stamping and so seldom create during the summer months ~ it was SO nice to play in my studio today! Oh how I wish you could see the dazzling details on each stamen on this card...this really does not do the card any justice!!! It is actually quite stunning!


I hope I have left you inspired to ink up your stamps and to play along with these fabulous challenges...be sure to stop by the design team and see their wonderful creations! Have a super day and enjoy this long weekend! Blessings to you and yours!
