Papercraft Star 159


This week, at Papercraft Star our photo is ...

I have a lot of crown charms, and I chose this one for my card this  week ...

The paper is Bazzill, & DCWV Chalk, the sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp.  A very simple card, but I loved how the sentiment echoed the jeweled crown !

Come and play with us this week !

Papercraft Star 158


Papercraft Star's photo this week ...

and as usual, I went far afield, and chose pineapples.

Here is my card, very simple ...

If you have been thinking about Weight Watchers, but haven't joined yet, now they allow you all the fruit you want !  No points, no tracking.  I think pineapple is my favorite fruit of all - and I do love it with chicken, or on a shishkabob.

We have a pretty easy challenge photo here !  Hope to see you at Papercraft Star this week !!

Still crazy after all these years


has a blue monochromatic color challenge this week.

Here is a birthday/anniversary card for my DH.
Yes, we married on his birthday, and he has never ever forgotten our anniversary !  Of course, he has no idea how many years, or even what decade we married, but he always remembers the day.

Very very simple.

Got the sun, got the moon


I am actually finding some time to make cards !  Doesn't happen all that often, and this HAS been a crazy year, whew.

I created another card with a big flower.  Hmmm.  I guess that must be my theme this week.  

This is my 2nd entry into City Crafter's polka dot challenge.
And, There She Goes Stamps with this inspirational picture ...

I think this aqua color and red are a perfect combo.

The card made itself in about ten minutes.  How did that ever happen ?  I usually fuss and moan over them for a couple of hours.  lol

Girls just wanna have fun


City Crafter has a polka dot theme this week !

Not only is this one of my favorite challenge blogs, but my most most most favorite theme EVER - I love polka dots !!
Not to mention my dear friends, Ros on the DT, and Sue as this month's guest designer - well, where else could I be today ??

It seems to me that the dotted swiss folder is a staple in most of our supplies !  And there is an excellent reason why.  I just loved it on top of more polka dots, and though it is difficult to see, the vellum also has dots, as does the flourish.

Hope you like it !

Here is a photo for this week's challenge at 

I love the colors, and Love the little houses every where, AND the doors and windows in the books.  

I had to think long and hard about my favorite book, and though I read at least 200 + books a year, I couldn't narrow it down to less than about ten.

Then I thought about the books that make my life easier, and my favorite, most of all, is Gooseberry Patch's Christmas all through the House. 

The recipes in this book are deadly.  I keep it up on my kitchen counter all year long.

Well, and here is my card, celebrating yummy goodies !!

I went a little more like summer, but I like how it turned out !!

Stop by Papercraft Star, and join in with us - you really have a variety of things to play with in that photo this week !!

The Kraft Journal #132, Layers & Layers !


This week, at

Layers !!

Who doesn't love lots and lots of layers !  I started off my card with a Buff Ivory Note Card, and layered and layered !!  I began with some design paper, layered atop more design paper.  I added a Vintage Black Journaling Card, which I fussy cut, and added a diecut to the top.  One more layer - a Silhouette Card atop more design paper.  The ribbon is Natural Burlap Ribbon, which curls so nicely !  The sentiment, from the ChitChat Word Stickers was afixed to a Flag Banner Sticker, with a button threaded with Natural Hemp Cord.  I finished off the card with some Washi tape inside, and a fun Custom Fastener through the burlap ribbon.
