Twisted Tuesday Challenge

It is Tuesday and time for another challenge over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges.  The challenge this week is "Autumn Thankfulness" which ties in perfectly with Thanksgiving.  The twist is to make it a thank you theme also. 
I made this card to send to my parents for Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving reminds me to be thankful for all that I have.  I am especially thankful for all my family and friends.

This is a Lockhart stamp and the sentiment is from Stampin Up.  I really like this fall embossing folder that I just purchased.  Goes perfectly with the theme.

Be sure and check out the rest of the design team on Twisted Tuesday Challenges to see what they came up with this week.

Prickley Pear

I have always loved a black background to make something pop so I decided to use that for this weeks post for Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.  The image is called Mistletoe and the sentiment is from Flourished Ovals 3 Holiday.  Amazing how the black makes everything stand out.
Check out the other posts by the design team at the Prickley Pear Blog.  Always some great ideas there.

Prickley Pear Designs Blog Hop

Prickley Pear is having a blog hop today.  The card that I have decided to use for the blog hop is a stamp called "Wooden Cart hh0151".  I love this stamp because it reminds me of my childhood when I was raised in the country.  I have a fondness for the antique wagons and farm equipment.

If you have arrived here from Kina, I am happy to have you here.  Please go on to Michelle for the next step in your journey through the blog hop.

Be sure and leave a comment because Prickley Pear will be giving away a prize package to a lucky commenter.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Birthday Patty

Today is my friend Patty's birthday.  She is turning 29 again today.  HA!  Patty loves dogs so I thought this would be the perfect birthday card for her.

The image I used is a digital image that I purchased at Whimsy Stamps.  They have some of the cutest digital stamps you would ever see.  This one is called "Dog Song".
Doesn't this remind you of the baking dogs Christmas song?  I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Little Fairies - Top of the Pops (Inspired by a song)
Moving Along With The Times - Furry Friends

So Happy Birthday Patty.  Hope you have a great one.

Twisted Tuesday Challenge

It is time for another challenge over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges.  The challenge today is Pop dots and the twist is to use polka dots somewhere.  For this challenge I went to one of my favorite stamp sets from Stampin Up called Circle Circus.  I just love all the different circle designs.  I used the colors Cherry Cobbler and black.  I used some dimensionals to pop a few dots around the card.  The ribbon is also Cherry Cobbler which has to be my favorite color that Stampin Up has ever carried.  The Happy Birthday Sentiment is from Two Paper Divas called "Got Cake".  Two Paper Divas has the nicest quality of clear stamps.  They stamp so nicely.  If you haven't tried them, please do because they are the best.  I then embossed my card with the large polka dot embossing folder.  I love the simplicity of this card but it still looks elegant.

Prickley Pear

I love my card that I have designed today using a fun stamp from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.  It is called Delicious Autumn.  There are so many things you could do with this stamp.  I used the French Pastry Cherry Lynn Die peeking out of one of the layers.  The beautiful paper I used was by Echo Park Paper Company called Reflections Fall.

Prickley Pear

Gosh I can't believe it is November already.  Leaves are falling and a chill is in the air.  Today I have made a card using a fun stamp from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps called Vintage Cornucopia.  This was really fun to color in with my copic markers.  I ran the rust colored paper through my crimper and used a little burlap for the background of the card.  After adding a few silk fall leaves and a cute button, I was satisfied that I had another Thanksgiving card.
Be sure and check out some of the other creations that the Design Team of Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps have designed today.  Have a great week!

Riley and Company

I just had to post this card because I thought it was so cute.  I am in a group over at Splitcoast Stampers and each month someone gets to pick an image.  This month (October - okay I was late) it was Heather.  This image is called Seal and Riley.  I just love it.  Heather also sent me paper to use somewhere in my card.  It is the green behind the image. 
The sentiment is from Two Paper Divas called Everyday Sentiments.  I use it alot because everything you would every need is on there.  If you haven't been to Two Paper Divas recently, they are now carrying clear stamps which I love.  The digitals are great but there is something about have that stamp handy when you need it.

I'm sure I will find someone special for this card to go to.  Enjoy your day.  It is beautiful here in Kansas.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenge
