Thanks for stopping by. Please take a moment to leave a comment so I'll know you were here! Have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!
Hope this isn't too early to post a Christmas card. It seems a little weird taking a picture of a Christmas card in 90-degree heat, but that's the way it is during Fall in the South!
Thanks for looking. Take a moment, if you will, to leave a comment and let me know what you think. I can take it! Have a good weekend! There should be more posts following this for future OWH challenges. I LOVE making cards for soldiers who are serving our Country!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful Labor Day weekend. Take it easy--but don't leave before leaving a comment for me. I need that just to keep me going through the next phase of this creative journey. Thank you!

My style is obviously leaning toward clean & simple, as I don't usually add a lot of frill to my cards. That's just like me, actually...not a lot of frill! Ha! Seriously, I thank you for stopping by and hope you like today's card. Take it easy! Don't forget to leave a comment so I'll have the mojo to keep up with this creative journey...could be a long road, but oh, what fun!

These two cards were created for a challenge at Gina K Designs where we are supposed to use gold anywhere on the card. My mind immediately went to embossing with gold powder, so that's what you see on these two cards, along with a gold ribbon on one.
Thanks for looking! Appreciate your comments -- they definitely keep me motivated to continue on this creative journey, day by day.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you like this card as much as I do. Please leave a comment before you go. Take it easy!

This was created for a challenge at Gina K Designs where we were to heat emboss an image for our card. I first inked the floral stamp in VersaMark, then stamped the image across the paper before heat embossing with clear embossing powder. Using Tim Holtz Distress Inks, I sponged Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey and Fired Brick colors over the embossed images. The sentiment is heat embossed in black. Pure Luxury Paper with embossed images is from Gina K Designs and Designer Paper is from Stampin Up!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you like today's card. Please leave a comment before you go--sure makes my day!

This card was created for the Outlawz CAS (clean & simple) challenge where we were to use these three primary colors: red, blue and yellow. I immediately remembered this crayon set from Stephanie Barnard's Stamps of Life and went to work. The three crayons are die cut.
Hope you enjoy this card. Please take a moment to leave a comment so I'll be motivated to continue on this creative journey again tomorrow! Thank you for stopping by!
This is a very clean & simple card, just inked in black, with a touch of Flamingo Liquid Pearls in the flower and across one of the dresses. I also added just a bit of Scattered Straw Stickles where the sand would be.
Hope you enjoy this card. Please leave a comment to let me know what you think -- I enjoy reading them very much. They keep me moving forward on this creative journey!

Thanks for looking! Appreciate your visit and any comments you'd like to make. They sure do keep me going!
Created this card using a stamp set that was one of my first purchases from Gina K Designs two years ago. The polka dot paper is one of her online "freebies" I printed with my computer. I made this card for a challenge with Gina K Design's Stamp TV where we are to use one of our first purchases.

Thanks for stopping by! I might have one or two more cards by the end of tomorrow, but after that I will be busy with my visitors for a few days -- my two sons are coming to visit! Now in their late 20s, no matter how old they get or how far away they live, they remain close to my heart, always.
Please leave a comment or two if you have a few moments, just to say Hi if you'd like. I love hearing from you! Thanks!

So, what do you think? Do you like the Polished Stone look? If so, give it a try! You just need some felt to go on the Tim Holtz dabber (not it's official name, but that's all I can think of at this moment), some household alcohol, and some shades of alcohol ink. Give it a try with two or three colors, then top off with Adirondack's Gold Alcohol Ink Mixative, but give it a good shake first so it is mixed well--that stuff separates easily. This needs to go on Glossy Cardstock, btw.
I love your comments. They truly keep me going, so please leave a sentence or two and say Hi! Thank you!

Hoppy Birthday was created for an Outlawz challenge where we were supposed to put together a card that included hopping, skipping or jumping. While this frog isn't actually in the act of jumping, he sure is thinking about it, especially with that fly bothering him!
Stamps came from Stephanie Barnard's Stamps of Life, where, as a club member, I receive a monthly stamp set, made in the USA. Love them! (stephaniebarnardstamps.com/)
Thanks for looking. You know how much your comments inspire me to keep moving forward on this creative journey, so write a note, won't you please? Thank you!
