How many Holiday Cards???

Hey there Crafty Peeps! We've made it
1/2 way through the week so far! YAY US!
Today, I've got my weekly holiday card!!!
I went and did a count on how many I've made
so far - and the total is (46)

So, that's pretty darn good! I do still need a few more
so I might have to step up my game just a little bit -
My goal is 60 cards at least - I know there are only
52 weeks in a year - but I've made some doubles too --
I think I just need to make a few more doubles
to get to my actual goal! I really would like to have them
all completed by Nov. 1st!
I'm going to a FUN Holiday card class in Oct. so I'll have
at least 10 made on that day - 😊

Any who.... Here's this weeks card!!!

Victorine Challenge #11 - Pearls & Lace

Hello & Happy Friday Everyone!
Today... starts another FUN Challenge over at: 

 YAY! I know how you
guys enjoy a good Challenge!

Our Challenge is Pearls & Lace - 

 You can follow the Theme or Use the inspiration photo
or Use the color combo or Use all 3!!! You don't have to use
a stamp from Victorine Originals if you don't have one!

All the rules for this fun challenge are RIGHT HERE!

Here's what I created to inspire you --

I really wanted to use the color scheme & use a little bit of
the Pearls & Lace - So I stamped the BEAUTIFUL Female
image from Victorine Originals called WOMAN IN DRESS (74835-F)
using Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink right on top of
some Kraft Cardstock - It really POPPED on that Kraft CS!!

Then Die cut it out with a Double Stitched Oval Die from
Gina Marie Designs - Since I wanted the Pink to be
the Focal point, I Die cut a Lovely Crochet Lace Oval Die
from Gina Marie Designs that my wonderful Blogging friend
BETH from (Beth's Beauties) gave to me... It made a wonderful
background layer -- 

So then I Pulled out a Fiskars Sunburst Border die and added that as my main
backdrop on the Kraft CS. I attached all those pieces onto my card base
then thought it needed to SPARKLE!! So I used my Sheer Shimmer
Sparkle Spritz - Which I'm hoping you can see in the photo -- 

I added some Lace Roses Trim off to the side using some Glossy accents
to attach them - then I decided I wanted this to be a Birthday card
I can give away to a crafty friend or Teacher, so I Die Cut the word
(Wishes) with some DCWV Pink Glitter Cardstock - I cut the
word out 2x's for added dimension - Then added a tiny Pearl gem for
the DOT on the I -- Then added a couple more tiny adhesive Pearls
to the woman's hair --

This is what the inside looks like - I'm using the
from Victorine Originals as well - I added some Tiny
Pearls around the sentiment and added a 1/2" Lite
Pink glitter strip along with some Lace Rose trim off to the side -- 

I think this one hit the mark on the Matching Color
Scheme of the Challenge... I LOVE my card!!! 😊

I hope you guys can join us --
 I would LOVE to see what you create!

Fall Birthday Wishes....

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
Today's my day to take over the blog at:
YAY for me... 🙌

I thought I would show you a lovely
Fall Birthday Card I made for a friend of
mine - I was thinking of her and thought she might 
enjoy receiving this in the mail -

Since her birthday is during the month of September,
Fall Colors Screamed to me along with a little bit of Gold!

So I pulled out the Lovely Bird Cages (74834-K)  Stamp set
I heat embossed it in gold on a piece of Vellum - Then I
decided I wanted the Bird Cages to be my focal point -- 

so then I pulled out a piece of Water color paper and some
Distress Oxides (Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint,
Fossilized Amber, Antique Linen) - After distressing
my watercolor paper I sprayed some water and lifted off 
some of the drops with a towel - 
Then I had to add my favorite Sparkle Shimmer Spray - 
and let it all dry -
Once the water color paper was dried I added a piece 
of Fun Foam to the backing just for some dimension
and added it to a Dark Brown Card base - 
I attached the vellum image on top of the water color paper,
using some tiny pieces of Strong Super tape -
They're hiding behind the tiny birds & the cage strips...
You can't even tell I added them! So Awesome! 

Of course I wanted to add a Sentiment - 
So, I used the Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink
& the Elegant "Happy Birthday" sentiment from 
the Floral & Sayings (10549-X) Stamp Set.
It fit perfectly on the Stitched Banner Die - 

I was going to add some embellishments...
But I really like the simple elegance with
the gold embossing and Fall colors as the background -

We're half way through the week already! YAY! 
I'm looking forward to the weekend!

Weekly Holiday Card - I'm using the 
New Paper Collection from Echo Park
Called (WISE MEN) 
This collection is really pretty -
It has some black, red, cream, & tan colors --
and beautiful sentiments for the holidays....
I just fell in LOVE with it!

First of all - I HAD to use my Sheer Sparkle Shimmer Spray -
This whole card is sparkly in real life - I love the way it shimmers
in the light and so will the recipient!! My Stitched Rectangle
Dies are from My Creative Time, the Scalloped Stitched Die
is from Craftin' Desert Diva's, The snowflake dies are from
Lawn Fawn and the Tiny Doilies Die is from My Craft Spot (No
Longer Available) -- I used a couple of adhesive clear gems
on some of the snowflakes and the Cardstock is Bazzill &

Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you have a Wonderful Day!

Grateful for you Bear....

Hello & Happy Tuesday Crafty Friends!
Today, I thought I would get straight to the point
with this FUN FALL Card, I made using the
Wonderful (A PERFECT AUTUMN) Paper
Collection by Echo Park --

I thought I would use Sketch #333 from
My Favorite Things on this one

The Stitched Circle Die & Stitched Rectangle Die are
from My Favorite Things - I used a Piece of 
DCWV Burlap CS behind the bear
And I used my Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Spray
on the Leaves, Acorns, Sentiment, & Bear
I also used a piece of Fun Foam to pop up
my card for a little more dimension -

I think this is perfect to send to a crafty friend!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a Fabulous Day!!
