Seasons Greetings – MFTWSC299

2016-09-26_pp_mftwsc299

‘Tis the season!!! I couldn’t resist playing with my new MFT kit that came on Saturday. If you missed out on the kit you have to grab the snowflake set when it is released in uh, November, I think? It is just gorgeous! I used the current MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge sketch to celebrate with a little sparkle and shine. And purple. Silver and purple is one of my all-time favorite holiday color combos.

Now let’s see a close up of the the sparkle and shine 😉

Feel Better Soon – CTD411

Not gonna lie, the colors for the Color Throwdown this week scared me a little. 😉 That’s quite a bright color palette and I had to tone it down a bit and set my flowers against a white background.

A super quick and simple card using the colors in the current MFT Color Challenge. I stamped the poppy with Coral Crush and Cactus inks, then filled in the center with a gray Copic Marker. Finished with the sentiment stamped in Gravel Gray ink.

Sending You Strength – CTD410

2016-09-17_pp_ctd419

I’ve actually had this card for the Color Throwdown done for a couple of days now. But finding the time to sit down and post this? Friday after work was grocery shopping and then off to a high school football game to see my niece in the marching band. Last week we found a couple of fleas on one of the dogs, so Saturday was giving both dogs a bath plus washing all of our bedding as well as the bedding in their crates, followed by vacuuming the whole house. Good times. The dogs weren’t particularly thrilled by this turn of events either:

Isn’t it fun when you get new toys? My MFT order came in this weekend and I used some of my new goodies on this card for the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge. And some oldies too. It’s been a while since I dug out the embossing paste. Pearlescent, of course. I had help on this card from a little crafting buddy who has been named Petunia, for obvious reasons.

You Are Unforgettable – MFTCC52

2016-09-04_PP_MFTCC52

Another card from Crafty Saturday. This oneis to play along with the MFT Color Challenge. I was struggling with this color palette until I was flipping through my stamps and found this sweet elephant set. The elephant and butterfly are popped up on foam tape. And it barely shows in the picture, but I used a glitter pen to add a little sparkle to the butterfly.

I’d Slay a Dragon for You – MFTWSC296

2016-09-04_PP_MFTWSC296

I spent all day Saturday with a group of my best crafting friends. I had missed our August Crafty Saturday, so I was long overdue for some crafting & chatting. And since I had a whole day dedicated to getting crafty, I finally had a chance to play with this adorable dragon set on a card for the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge. I used my Copic markers to color these images. Now, I know what the sentiment says, but I’d have a really hard time slaying such a cutie-pie purple dragon.

Yay, You! – CTD408

2016-09-04_PP_CTD408

I have a confession. This is the second card I made for the Color Throwdown. I made the first one yesterday, then I noticed I had cut it a little bit crooked. So last night I took the front panel off with my trusty bottle of un-du and tried to straighten up the edges. And at that point I managed to completely jack it up beyond all redemption. Oops. Fortunately, it’s a pretty easy card and I made the second one this morning.
