The Bloggers Challenge Travel

Good Afternoon,

Here is my card for this weeks Travel Challenge.  She is off to explore Paris.  I used a Dover Digital for the lady and colored her with my favorite "Copic Markers" coloring tool.  The luggage tag is from JSIM Digital Stamps and the last three are from CanStock Photo.  It is a site I discovered while surfing the Internet for digitals and clip art.  I have bought several images from them now and love them  all.
All papers are from my paper stock and I have no idea who's is who's because I am a paper hoarder!!! I see it I want it!  Then I added some raffia grass to the tag and black pearls for accent on verse and for buttons on the jacket. 
I think it came out pretty good and I think my creative juices are kicking in again.
Thanks for looking

Bloggers Challenge Buttons

Good morning   It sure has been a while!!  Was hoping to be back by the beginning of September but things were still crazy around here.  DH is now siding the house with cedar shingles and adding a porch. Although he is doing the work he keeps me busy fetching!

Not a real difficult card but when I saw the Buttons I wanted to use this paper by Steady On.  The label was computer generated and three of the buttons are raised up...made a cute B Day card.

Opps picked up wrong card this one the tag is wrong in that the h sould have been lower case and the Y should have been upper case...I made a new one and then entered picture of old one...I'm back!!! LOL

Hope all is well with you all.

Hi all my blogging friends

Hi all,  I will be taking off the rest of July and August to do some work for the company I used to work for.  They have asked me to come in and go through all the records to see what needs to be saved and what needs to be shredded.  Some of the records date back to 1999!!  So this is going to be a big all fairness to myself and the challenges I do, I know right now I would not do my best work, so I have made the decision to not play for a while.  I will miss you all very much and see you in September!!!

May God bless you all!

Bloggers Challenge Color Red/Blue/White

Normally Red-White-Blue means 4th of July and fireworks..but since they made them legal here in Rhode Island that is all I have heard every night for about a month I'm about all celebrated out now. So no firework cards this year!!!    Maybe that is the reason for the non traditional cards this year.  I needed two cards for a swap I'm in and I just felt like something different...what can be more fitting at this time of year than to ask for blessings not just for America but for everyone in the world.  I would like to see nothing more than everyone being blessed and peace in the world.
No stamping here again.  Just a little whisped frame around the one verse.  The paper I found free on (computer) scrapbook. com  and they are by an artist named Jeannie Baechtold.  The two verses were printed of my computer using Microsoft Word Art.

This page is still acting up but I just don't have time to fix it.

Well have a great Holiday weekend ...Happy 4th of July be safe and most of all be blessed!!!!

Bloggers Challenge Things with Wings

Okay I don't understand but blog is acting up again it is typing everything on the line below until I hit enter then it moves it up good thing this is an easy card!!!
Not sure where background paper came from but it is so great for this image from TLC Creations.  The bird was sitting on a branch but for this card I just wanted the bird.
Just a note is by Rubber Stampede and I stamped it in SU Real Rust. I also used the Real Rust to make a sort of Whisped Frame Technique as seen in the Technique Junkies Newsletter. I then distressed the edges and used more Real Rust to highlight the edges.

Been so busy with church this week and entertaining I didn't get a chance to do this until this morning.
The church pastor has asked me to present to the church a Coupon class/swap.  I have been doing this for several years but got really serious when the economy went south!!!  I haven't paid full price for too many things for quite a while now and this week I actually got 2 Pantene Pro V shampoos for free.  So I will share what knowledge I have and hopefully there will be others that can add information too.  Any gals out there coupon and have any ideas for me?  I just started putting my coupons in a binder with clear sheet of 9 pockets (type like used for ATC's) so that has been a huge help.  Please e-mail me at my email address in the group files if you have any hints!!!

That's all for now

SNSDC6 Happy Father's Day

Here is my submission to the Sweet N Sassy Digital Challenge .  I didn't want to do the usual Father's Day card so I thought I'd use some unusual colors. 
All paper is from my card stock.  I started with a medium blue and printed a Sweet N Sassy Lighthouse Digital and Happy Father's Day was computer generated. Then I highlighted around the image with Color Box inks using a sponge.  I used the yellow paper to make the image pop.  I then mounted all the layers on a darker blue card.
I like the effect I achieved and this will be for my grandson to give his Dad for Father's Day.  My son is partial to purple so these blues seem to be in that color range.  Not sure my grandson would give his dad a purple card!
Have a blessed weekend and a blessed week!!!
