Window cards

Hello friends,

Today I have a couple of cards for you. Recently I relieved a lovely card from a dear friend of mine (thanks Penny) It was so pretty I just had to CASE it. I did switch it up slightly because that's just what I do.

Both the birds and flowers are stamped on the inside of the card and are visible through the window. The card I cased (shown below) does not have coloured card stock layered beneath the window cut out. For my cards I decided to add some. I like how it draws the eye to the flowers and birds and makes them the focal point. I hope you like them.

Here's a picture of the card I CASED (made by Penny O'Dell)

Card with Food

Hello Everyone!
Today's card once again is for the Twisted Thursday card challenge on Outllawz Challenges. As usual the challenge is "Anything Goes" with a "twist". You can make any kind of card you wish and have a chance to win a fabulous prize. If you decide to add the "twist" which in this case is to add some kind of food to your card, you double your chances to win a prize.

This challenge is open for participation from April 11th to the 17th. If you miss out on this challenge, don't worry, there is a new one every week. In fact there are challenges for every day of the week so be sure to hop on over to Outlawz and check it out!

I recently made 10 really nice cards that I'm just dying to show you but I can't just yet. I made them for the Stamping Royalty contest in the "Paper crafts" magazine. I am so hoping I win one the their awesome prizes!!! There will be 15 winners chosen and each winner will win $750.00 worth of stamping products and will also have the opportunity to submit cards for upcoming publications! Woo hoo! Contest rules say the cards submitted for the contest must not have been previously published anywhere which is why I can't show them just yet. Winners will be notified on or before April 19th. Any cards that don't win ca be published after that so stay tuned for more posts, ok.

Blue Butterflies

Hello stamping friends!
So nice of you to stop by. I sure appreciate you visiting my blog and allowing me to share what I've been up to. This card was made for another Twisted Thursday's card challenge on Outlawz. The theme was 'Birds or Butterflies" and was done for the March 24th challenge.

I created this band of butterflies by stamping with a single butterfly stamp and using "mask it" to cover the previously stamped butterfly to create the illusion of 3D.I coloured them with Copic markers and added stickles to pretty them up. I think if I were to do it again, I might try pink instead of yellow under the butterflies.

Thanks for stopping by!

Making Music

Hello friends!
So nice to have you drop by. Once again I'm sorry for the long silence on my blog. For those who don't know me, I am battling Lyme Disease and occasionally I go through a really bad spell health wise. When that happens, I try to lay low and reserve my energy for necessary stuff like keeping up with  my DT commitments. I'm back on my feet now and ready to share what I've been creating.

This card was created for an Outlawz card challenge. It was for the Twisted Thursday's April 4th challenge which was to create a card that  had music and/or singing on it. I hope you like what I came up with.
