Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge MMSC13

Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge looked interesting this week. Here is the sketch layout.

This is the card I made. All those squares were a challenge but I like how the card turned out.

The flower and leaves are from a Christmas set made by Close to My Heart. The stem is from Autumn Leaves. The pattern paper and blue cardstock were leftovers from another project.

Here is a side view showing the dimension I added.

Priscilla is giving away some awesome blog candy. Why not join the challenge and check out the blog candy at

Have a great Sunday.

Water scene

I received this great stamp from my sister. I tried an new technique with it. I have never tried to stamp on acetate and then rub it onto cardstock. That is the way I did the reflection of the trees.

ATC Swap

I joined an ATC swap entitled Literature. So I did a search of the word Literature and found this quote by Aldous Huxley. It says A man's memory is his private literature. When I thought about the quote I thought of my family. So I did a collage and made this ATC.

Wedding Card with Vinyl

Here is just a touch of vinyl. I cut out the wedding rings with my Cricut using the Wedding/Marriage cartridge. I made two sets of rings so I could use the other one on the envelope. The vinyl in this case is shiny silver vinyl. It reflects very well. I wonder if you could use alcohol inks on it. Guess I'll just need to find out. The vinyl comes in a duller gold too.

Colorful Vinyl

Lookie what I have. I'm sure most of you know vinyl is all the rage these days and with your cricut, big shot or other cutting system we can make our own vinyl designs. If you are interested in purchasing any vinyl at very reasonable prices please contact me.

I hope to share some designs I have made shortly. So please come back.

June Inspiration

I belong to an online group of wonderful artists. Why they choose me to join I'm not sure but I do get a lot of ideas from them. Plus I consider them my very good friends.

I found an ad in a magazine for a HOB special and was so inspired by the layout and colors. This card is a result.

Greeting Card Swap

Hi everybody.

I joined a greeting card swap over at Gina K Designs.

I am posting the two pictures of the cards I am sending out soon.

If you haven't been over to Stamp TV you are missing out on a great community and place to see top quality how-to videos. I have a link to the site on my side bar.

Let me know what you think.
