PNW Birthday Buddies Blog Hop for Kimberly!

 
!!Happy Birthday Kimberly!!

Please join us in wishing our friend Kimberly a very happy birthday!  Kimberly is one of the sweetest and most talented people I know.  If it wasn’t for her at our crafty days I would never actually make anything, I would just sit and talk.  She always brings the most awesome make and takes for all of us.  I tried to case some of her watercolor cards for this hop but I could not do it so I cased a card I saw at CHA from Altenew and I am happy with how it turned out.  I am going to keep practicing so that I can actually case some of Kimberly’s gorgeous creations.

 


I embossed and watercolored the Altenew Persian Motifs flower with Tim Holtz markers and a water-brush.





Kimberly I hope you are surrounded by family and friends today and feel totally loved throughout the year! Happy Birthday my friend.


Here are the links to all the other buddies.  Please be sure to leave Kimberly birthday wishes on her blog!

JOY THD and PTI December Blog Hops

PTI Blog Hop
Time for the Papertrey Ink Dec Blog Hop!
This month’s inspiration photo:
Supplies:  PTI Snowflake Die, Cardstock, Hibiscus Burst Ink; Concord & 9th Joy Die, Snowflake Stamp;
Versamark Dazzle Ink, Nuvo Sparkle Dust Glitter, Wink of Stella
 

But darn it is hard to get a good picture when it is dark outside.  This is much prettier in real life and the colors match the inspiration photo.  The letters have just a touch of wink of stella on them as they seemed too flat on top of the very sparkly snowflake.  I added the versamark snowflakes in the background just to add a touch of something as it looked naked to me.  Hope your holidays are full of JOY!

Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!

Season’s Greetings WCLBH2016

 

I made this card a week or so ago after seeing this card by Wanda Guess and it just kept falling apart, plus my camera was acting up and I couldn’t get a good picture.

 

 

So today, while my beloved Seahawks were getting their backsides kicked, I reassembled it for the Winter Coffee Blog Hop and added those super cute coffee cups to the antlers!  I love it!  Bonus the cups don’t keep falling off like the bells did.

 

    Tim Holtz Trophy Antlers; Memory Box Coffee Cup Die; Carta Bella Christmas Washi; VeraMark Watermark ink;

Thank you for stopping by and wishing very merry Christmas season!

Thinking of You SC135

This week we have sketch for inspiration:

 

 

 

Here is my take:

 

 

 I tweaked the sketch a bit for this one.   This was my first time crafting in over a month and it difficult to get started but now that I am doing it again I don’t plan to keep at it!  Have you looked at the SU Christmas catalog!  It has so much cool stuff and inspiration in it!  You should check it!

 

Thank you for stopping by and I can’t wait to see what you create!
