Here is my Card ....

 I had this cute little polar bear coloured already -
so I just needed to find co-ordinating paper,
then I stamped the ice chunk and the sign.

 I used the snow embossing powder on the top of the ice,
and the snow section of the sign.
I used glitter embossing powder on the face
of the ice & the face of the sign.

I also added glitter powder tot the snowflakes
inside of the card as well.

That's it, my quick Christmas card.

Here are a few cards I came up with:

  I always colour more images than I need!
then I can play around with the look of the cards,

Here is the one I like the best.

I layered black under the chickies - 
I like the shadow effect.

Here is card two, 
more of a muted pastel.

and card three, it was just fun.

All of the cards are the same on the inside,
just different colours.

 Here are a few process photos.
recently when on other blogs, 
I really enjoy the process shots so I am going to start 
to add more of them for those who like them as well.

Thanks for stopping by to see my cards-

Summer Days Layout - Simple Stories

As much as I love to make cards - 
my first creative passion has always been layouts.

One snowy day last week I sat all afternoon
& made layouts.  Here is one.

I used Simple Stories Summer Days

 This is a park close to our house.
It is beautiful & can be very warm from the dark rocks or 
very cold from the swift flowing river.

 I love the simple colours and design of this line.
I also have the ephemera pack.
I really like these pieces, 
it makes finishing a layout so easily. 
 I have always likes enamel dots.
They add just that right pop of colour 
& interest to layouts.

Thanks for stopping by to see my nice sunny layout!

Christmas card for the week

Happy Friday all - 

I am back with my Christmas card for the week - 
It is pretty plain but it is done - non the less!!

I still have the Sketch N Scrap sketch on 
my desk, I think it subliminally was in my brain as 
the card looks more along the lines of the sketch
& less on what I was planning on making...

Again it is complete & in the done pile!!

Here is thier sketch 

and you can play along with them HERE

Here is my card

i did have teh flag going all the way across the bottom
 just like the sketch but it just didn't soot it, 
so I gave it a little snip & tada ...

Thanks for popping by - Have a great weekend!!

MFT Colour Challenge

I am back to share a colour challenge from MFT card Challenges

You can play along HERE 

They have new sketched and colour challenges 
for you play along with, 
when you link up you have a chance to win 
a gift certificate from MFT!!!!

here is the colour swatch for this week :

I am going to stay with my son's billet family for a few days - 
so I wanted to make a card - here is what I came up with.

 It has been along time since I made a shaker card & 
I had so much fun - Only problem was I added finer glitter 
when filling the shake - DO NOT do this - 
I worled so hard on my background and you can barely see it!!

In the shaker i added 3 coloured shells,
 6 pink sequence & 6 blue sequence & 
fine glitter - ughhh.
You can see a bit of the long green seaweed, 
 the pink enmity & a school of fish if you look closely.

Here is my cute mermaid.
I had stickles on her before I added the glitter to the shaker.  
I little to much glitter altogether??
The ink blue ocean was my blue for the challenge - now she is.
Her hair is the yellow.

Here are my cute clown fish & sea turtle,
they make up my orange & green for the challenge.

Here is a close up of my sentiment.
It is from another set of stamps, 
but it works perfectly  for what I need. 

Thanks for stopping by -

MFT Space Explorer Card for Challenge

Hello all - well I have a cute card to load 
for the MFT Card Sketch Challenge - 
You can find their sketched and play along here :

Here is the Sketch for this week 

This week I used the MFT BB Space Explorer  Stamp set.

Image result for MFT astronaut

I chose this set because as I was flipping through 
my sets with the sketch in mind - the planets instantly became
the circle embellishments!

Here is my card for the challenge

I really like the way this turned out - 
The astronaut has grey wink of Stella on his suit, 
just to jazz him up as this will be a card for my son.

His face shield is crystal effects for it super shinny.
I tried to take a photo with a bit of glare so you could see it.
The photo below really shows this.
He also has some on his chest patch.

The planets all have a little wink of stella as well,
just enough to make them a little more interesting. 
It doesn't stand out a ton but you can see it in the moon craters above.

If you have seen my cards before you know 
I break out the pop dots and get 
some serious elevation on some items.
I love the feel they give the card.

 The background I inked with my distress inks,
 Peacock Feather, Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint, 
Blueprint Sketch & Chipped Sapphire.
Once I had a blended background, I misted it with
the Mini pulverizader spray bottle.
It has a nice fine mist.

The little window on the rocket is also 
crystal effects.  I love the cord that 
supplies the astronaut oxygen and ties 
him to the shim.
I twisted it  - so it strands up a bit.

Well that's my card for today!!
