Welcome! So Thankful for You!

Hello everyone, new to my blog or good 'ol friends! Its good to be back after a 2 year sabbatical! This challenge is so very important to me.  I introduced my SIL Liz to paper crafting and blogging not long ago.  She and I spend mornings and nights on FaceTime crafting and chit chatting.  She has been a rock for me since I met her.

She has entered challenges and is SOOOO enjoying the paper crafting community!  And SHE is the reason that I am posting today. I've been a little shy about getting back to the blog, BUT she just encouraged me to post, so here I am.  So Liz, this cards for you!

I am entering the PTI August Create Along with Us challenge. Loved this card by Dawn McVey, so I inverted the ink blending.

 I received my PTI package so quickly, and was able to use the Paper Clippings So Thankful for You die. I found some copper shimmer paper to cut the die from.

I used distress inks to blend a background and then layered the die cut on top.
I used a Quicky Glue Pen to adhere the die cut, leaving some of the leaves, berries and wheat unglued so I could make the card a bit 3 dimensional.
It is late, and I am slipping into the challenge at the last minute, so no sequins or bling.  But anyways, I Love it!!!  Thank you so much for visiting.  Truly! I appreciate it so very, very much!

Happy 3rd Birthday to the Ribbon Carousel!

Hey there Party Goers!  Welcome to this month's Ribbon Carousel 3rd Birthday Celebration Party challenge, which is going to be so easy, you'll be able to enter almost ANYTHING you make! 

This month's theme is...you guessed it.....
Party Time!

 So what prize is up for grabs? How about a Ribbon Carousel?!  And this will be the ONLY Carousel given away for the remainder of the year!
This Birthday month we are giving away a Ribbon Carousel to one of our randomly chosen challenge participants! Just a reminder that our Ribbon Carousel Crewmates have divided up into two teams. Each 1st and 15th of the month you will see fresh projects for this months challenge.
I made a series of cards for the Ribbon Carousel challenge and used the colors from this week's ColorQ Challenge.

 Loved using all of the new dies, stamps and inks ~ FUN stuff!!  I'm using the new linking list too for my card ingredients.  New to me I should say. ;)  Thanks for visiting and Happy crafting.

Happy 2014....oops...

I know I'm a little late to the party (obviously didn't have enough coffee), but I've started crafting again!  I have major mojo built up and will be ready to share my creations again.  Here's my first card....

And here it is with a photo enhancement called Autumn.  

I used the sketch from the Lesley's Blog called "The Challenge #5.  Go play along! It's a fun sketch and a great place to start a scrapbook page or card!  I have to relearn Photoshop, Photo taking, Copic Coloring and card making. OY!!  

Have a crafty day!
