Thinking of You Card Using Art by Miran Joyful Joanne for Facebook ATG Challenge

Hello friends!  How are you?  Summer is almost over and Fall will be coming soon.  I love the cool fall days!  I just don't care for the winter months when it is too cold to go anywhere else, other than staying home in Southern CA.  LOL!  I miss seeing the snow; but not driving in it.  We sometimes travel north so we can play in the snow.  
 
It is time for another fabulous Art by Miran Anything Goes challenge with the option of Fall or Halloween.  I have chosen this sweet Art By Miran Joyful Joanne image to create my winter scene.  I forgot about the Fall and Halloween option.  It is nice that it is an option; rather than a requirement.   I hope you will take time to create something to enter into our challenge.  You have a chance to win free digis if your creation is chosen.

Birthday Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik Radiant Soul


Hi friends!  Where have you been for vacation this year?  What did you do for fun this summer?  Are you getting time to craft?  I am hoping to go on vacation sometime soon; but still not sure of the date.  We have wanted to do a driving vacation for several years; but it hasn't worked out.  I hope this year is different.

It's time for my Inspiration Post for Ching-Chou Kuik.  I have created a card using this gorgeous image - Ching-Chou Kuik Radiant Soul.  I love her!  I hope you will take the time to join our September challenge on our Ching-Chou Kuik (CCK) blog.  We also have challenges on our CCK Facebook group, as well. We have several challenges for you to enter with a chance to win free digis.  Be brave and go for it.  You won't regret it!

As You Like It - Favorite Song & Why?  Another favorite song of mine is "Butterfly Kisses" by Bob Carlisle.  It makes me feel happy and sad at the same time.  I remember those butterfly kisses from all three of my children and from some of my grandchildren as well. Those butterfly kisses have meant so much to me over the years; especially as I get older. I still remember them to this day.

Thinking Of You Card Using CTMH Swan Lake Paper Pack

Hello friends!  We are planning our vacation and hoping we are able to go this year.  Say a prayer for us.  It is a challenge to take a trip with my allergies to smells.  It appears that most hotel chains have a lot of air fresheners that add a strong smell to the air all over the buildings on a regular basis.  They also use laundry detergents with a strong smell.  I can't breathe with any smells; so it does make planning a vacation a big challenge.

We go to Branson, MO once a year and stay in a condo; while we visit family in the area. We went several months ago.  The staff are wonderful and do their best to make it smell free for me.  We haven't been on a vacation for several years other than Branson; so I decided we had to try it again. 

I bought some of the new papers from CTMH and wanted to create a few cards.  This is one that I created using one of the Picture My Life Cards that come with the CTMH Swan Lake paper pack. All I had to do was cut the card down a little and add it to a card base.  I then stamped the front sentiment with Versa mark ink and used embossing powder. For some reason, it smeared a little.  I love this sweet image.  We also have a stamp set and dies to match this paper pack. The stamp set is sold alone or as a bundle with the dies.  You can see it on a previous post. 

Found in our Holiday Expressions Idea book 
It has a lot of other products to go with it as well.




Supplies used to create this card:

Paper - CTMH Swan Lake Paper Pack - X7212B
Cardstock - CTMH Poppy 
Sentiment - CTMH So Many Smiles C1619
Ink - Versa Mark Ink pad
Embossing Powder - Stampendous White
