Thanks from my Stash - CYS

Hello friends and happy Monday! It was a good day for me because my boss was gone most of the day and just got to the office 1/2 hour before I got to leave. Hehehehe! That gave me time to work on my school work.

I made this card for the SCS Challenge Your Stash Group. Each month one of the members picks a theme and we all make a card from our own stash. We can't use anything new so we use up stuff we have been hoarding. Haha! I have a lot of that. This month our hostess was Sue (stampinspooky on SCS). Her challenge was to make a Thank You card and to use embossing.

I've had this card done for awhile. I made four of them to put in my stash for when I need one. They were really easy and I'd like to make some in different colors.
Materials Used:
  • Image - Stampin Up, Floral Statements.
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up, Wisteria Wonder
  • Accessories - ribbon
  • Copic Markers - G21, G24, G28; V20, V22, V25
Wow! That was easy.

Merry Patterns DDCC

Good morning. Happy Sunday. It's still cold here in H Town, but the sun is shining so hopefully it will turn out to be a nice day. More cold is on the way though later this week. I know there are those of you who have much colder weather, but I think it's all in the perspective. If we expect it to be 70 and it's 30, then that's really cold for us.

I'm also battling the crud that I've had since Christmas. Doesn't seem like anything will make it lose it's grip on me. Luckily, I've been able to keep up with my schoolwork and my office work.

I've had this card ready for some time, just haven't had the energy to get it posted and uploaded. It was so easy and I ended up making four of them.


Materials Used:
  • Image - Stampin Up, Merry Patterns
  • Sentiiment - Stampin Up, Merry Patterns
  • Card stock - Stampin Up, Whisper White; Dirty Durango
  • Designer Paper - Deja Views, Fair Isle Christmas
  • Ink - Stampin Up, Dirty Durango, Handsome Hunter
This was so easy to make and I love how it turned out. Could do it so many other color combinations.
How are you doing on getting your Christmas cards done? I hope to keep up this year with these monthly challenges from the Dirty Dozen Christmas Challenge. I love sending hand made Christmas cards to my family and friends.

Country Snowman - Creative Card Chicks

Good morning! Happy Martin Luther King Day. I get to stay home for the holiday. For some reason our firm decided last year that we needed another holiday day off and this is the one that they chose. It's a little overcast today and chilly, but not raining so that's good.

Before I get started on my day, I thought I better get my Monthly Challenge Card done for Creative Card Chicks over on SCS. Our group has a hostess each month who sends a kit to the other members and we all make at least one card from the kit and share it between the 21st and 23rd of each month. This month's kit came from Jeanette (Forest Ranger on SCS). I was inspired and got my card done right after I received the kit, just waiting for the time to post it.All the elements came from the kit except for the base cardstock.

Materials Used:
  • Image - Stampendous - Country Snowman
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up - Flakey Friends
  • Cardstock - Stamping Up Real Red and Kraft
  • Designer Paper - Paper Studio - All SeasonThree
  • Accessories - Paper Studio - Snowflake brad
  • Copic Markers - E02, E04, E30, 331, E34; E40, E41; G24, G28; R30, R43, R46; T6, T8; Y38

Finding Nemo - IAS #50 - Choose a Movie

Good morning my friends and Happy Sunday. For those of you having snow, if you like it I'm glad you are enjoying it; if you don't like it, so sorry. I hope it clears up soon. As for me, it's a beautiful, sunny day; a little on the chilly side, but at least it's not percipitation of any kind.

I have a card to share with you today. It is for the challenge over at International Art & Soul. We were to Choose a Movie and create a card or some artwork to go with it. I chose Finding Nemo. I know this is not a clown fish like Nemo was, but it was a close as I could get and I like the way it turned out.

Materials Used:
  • Image- Whimsey Stamps - Fish
  • Sentiment - 14 Sentiments from Finding Nemo by Johnny Brayson
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Bordering Blue
  • Designer Paper - Gina K - Pool Side

Bailey and Bosco - IAS

Hello my friends and happy Sunday! It's a beautiful day here today with the sun shining and temps warming up a little bit. I'm still fighting a sore throat but getting somewhat better. I was able to go back to work last Thursday and now enjoying my shorter work hours.
A new school semester starts this week so thing are going to be a bit on the crazy busy side, but hopefully that extra hour in the evenings will be a big help.

I'm glad to get to play along again with my teamies over at International Art & Soul. Our challenge for this fortnight is Cats and/or Dogs and we would love to see your amazing artwork containing either or both of these four legged friends. Even though I am a confirmed cat lover, I thought this image was so cute picturing a dog.

I hope you'll take the time to pop on over to the challenge blog to see what everyone else has created. We have some very talented ladies on the team. Even though it is Just For Fun, we'd like you to join in and maybe win a badge for your blog.

Mayzy Girl With Owl - CYS

Hi my friends. I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas. Christmas day was good with my family and some extended family members celebrating together. Too bad that I started getting sick that day and have been home from work since then. Still not feeling the best, but hope that it will go away before time to go back to work on Monday. I can't believe that in only a few days, it will be 2019.

Today I have a card that I did for the Challenge Your Stash challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. Each month one of the members posts a theme for us to follow and then everyone makes a card for that theme. The theme for December was posted by Jody aka cardsbyjo. We were to use an owl on our card somewhere and all the things that we use must be from our stash including the image and sentment.  I found this digital stamp by Mayzy that I've had in my collection for ages and never used. I thought it was cute and perfect for the challenge.


Materials Used:
  • Image - Mayzy Art -Girl with Owl
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up - Feel Goods
  • Card stock - Stamping Up - Fancy Fig
  • Designer Paper - Bo Bunny - Charmed Collection
  • Ink - Memento - Tuxedo Black
  • Accessories - Recolletions - flower; Doily and ribbon from my stash
  •  Copic Markers - B000; E30, E31, E35; E04; E50, E51, E53; R20, Y19, Y21, YR20, YR21.
That's it. We'll have another fun year coming up starting in January. Hope you'll be back to see what is happening,
