GC Ribbon Challenge

Really quick today, wanted to post the card for Gingersnap Creations Ribbon Challenge. The card was made while in Utah. My daughter Kaylene cut out the ornaments using a Cricut and putting the ornament together, all I had to do was put them on a card add the ribbon and the sentiment.
The hard part of this card was taking the photo, sorry it isn't that great, the hologram paper on the background made it pretty hard to photograph.
Gingersnap Creations is looking for new members, it is such a fun group, and they offer great ideas and challenge to motivate it's members. Check it out, think you will really enjoy all of there contributions.
Thanks for stopping by today, and have a great crafting day.

It has been awhile since my last post, things have been crazy around my family. We came home from Utah and then returned 5 days later. Billy had more tests done, and I was able to spend more time with my daughter and sister. We will be returning to Utah once again in August, hopefully will get some answers about the pain in his legs and we will know what the next step will be.

We were able to make cards, nine to be exact, we made six of each for a swap, so we really did get alot completed. I will be posting some of those cards at a later date.

I really wanted to participate in a challenge at Crafty Creations to get motivated again. My goal is to make 6 of each card to continue the swap with my sister, her family and my family, finding that it is just as easy to make one card as six.
This is Sketch Challenge #25 for CCC.
This was a new experience for me, I've not used a sketch for a challenge so this definitely a challenge for me. I seem to always go for solid colors and stay away from prints, am trying to use more prints, but it didn't really happen with this card.
The flower pot stamp, was part of a set from Hero Arts, this was in my stash from years ago, longer than I'd like to remember, LOL! The sentiment stamp is from Stampology.
Reversed colors and added rhinestones, and a flower rhinestone for accents.
Will continue to try and create out my comfort zone. Do like the results, but know that improvements can be made.
Have a great crafting day.

Flowers in Utah

Just a quick post. We are back from our trip to Utah, it seemed that we got there and had to return. Can you believe the only pictures I took were of flowers, that's because I don't have any here in Vegas. Thought you might like to see a couple.

The above picture is from my daughters front yard. She now has a garden, being raised in Las Vegas, this is totally out of the box for her.

The other two pictures are from my sisters yard. One of her favorite hobbies is gardening. Don't know how she does it, with all of her other projects. Helped her start a blog, she is just trying to get everything together, can't wait to see all of her beautiful projects.

Today is my Friday, so there are some new projects that I have on my to do list. Want to get a couple of challenges completed, that will be my focus on Tuesday and Wednesday. While in Utah I got some new stamps and papers, can't wait to try them, also new texture plates and stencils, can't wait.

Have a great Sunday.

Sunflowers That Brighten the Day

Good morning! Hope everyone had a wonderful 4Th of July. Being in the transportation industry I had to work yesterday, so my 4Th of July celebration will start on Monday. We are going to Salt Lake for a couple of days, Billy has to have some tests run.

Just a quick post and pictures of a couple of projects that I completed last week. We went to dinner at Gayle's (Billy's sister) and I wanted to take the ladies a little gift, hence the jar candle and note cards. This was such a fun and easy project, but the ladies loved them, even guessed right on the fragrances for the candles.
The flowers were made by making using 4 of the Scalloped Circles from Spellbinder, layering and the center is a 3/4 circle. The lace border punch was used for the band around the jar. The stamp used for the sentiment is from K & Company.

The note cards were inspired by Dannie's Designs, she has a video on the instructions, it is easy to follow click here to see all of her wonderful ideas, am sure you will be inspired. The candle decorations were inspired by Treasure Oiler Designz you can see her work here. The stamped flower is from the same set of stamps from K & Company. Used 1/4 ribbon for the ties to complete the holder. Thanks to these two creative women for sharing there ideas, hope these two projects brighten you day.

Have a great day of crafting!
