Bright Christmas

Aloha Friday!  Ok, ok, I know it's not Friday....but over at Kitty Bee Designs we have a new Aloha Friday challenge - and yes, I'm late as usual...UGH!.  This round the theme is Unusual Colored Christmas.  Forget the red and green...time to get out the different colors!  Now you can still use colors red, green, or gold....just not together.  Our sponsor is Handmade Harbour.   

For my card I did use green...but a green that I usually don't use - a bright lime green!  And what goes with lime green?  Well hot pink of course!  LOL!!

Thanks / Tender Thoughts

Friday - time for a new Aloha Friday Challenge at Kitty Bee Designs.  This round our challenge is "Thanks/Thank You".  It's such a great time of year - time to count our blessings...time to tell those you love how much you appreciate them and why they are special to you.  Why not create a card and just say "thanks".

Our sponsor for this round is A Day For Daisies.  I used an image called Tender Thoughts

Come on over to Kitty Bee and join our Aloha Friday challenge.  And of course - tell someone how thankful you are for them.  Speaking of being thankful - thanks for stopping by today!!  I sincerely appreciate you spending some time with me.  God bless you!!!

Autumn thoughts

I love's my favorite time of year.  But today there is 3-4 inches of snow on the ground - so it's Nov.17th and I'm already done with Winter!  LOL!!  So I'm thinking back to last week when the leaves were still falling and the weather was "sweater weather". 

My card today is from a Deedee's Digis set called "Stitchy Fall".  I love the country feel to this set!  Of course the images come color or not colored...and since I don't have a colored printer I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color the image.  Add some twine and I think it's the perfect Fall card:

Thanks for stopping by today.  God bless you!!!

It's a new challenge at Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday!  (And yes, I know it's Saturday and I'm late posting....story of my life).  Our sponsor for this challenge is KennyK - who just happens to have some great images for this theme.  I used an image called Skateboard and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers.  From my stash I used Thickers to spell out FLY which I thought really fit image.

Pumpkins and candy.....oh my!

This week is Halloween....and festivities are starting early at least around here - in my neighborhood we are having Trick or Treat today.  It's so cute to see the little kids dressed in their costumes roaming the neighborhood looking for candy...brings back memories of doing that myself....many...many...many years ago - LOL!!

Our theme for our new Aloha Friday Challenge at Kitty Bee Designs is Halloween.  Our sponsor for this round is Dilly Beans Stamps.  Now remember that you have until November 5th to enter the challenge...and the chance to win!

For my card I used Mimi & Sarah's Pumpkins Framed.   I picked this image because typically I don't really celebrate Halloween and thought this could be used as even a Fall image.  What do you think?

Here's a little something else to encourage you:

Thanks for stopping by today.  God bless you!!!

More catching up....

Yep - I'm catching up again....this time it is a card kit that was sent to me by my very good friend - Ginny.  Ginny has a fabulous blog with lots of freebies:  Maxam Made.  You'll keep going back again and again - believe me.  Ginny sent me the kit gee, I think over a month ago...and so since I've been on vacation this week I've been able to use it.  Here's the cards I made using the great images and papers she sent:

The only coloring I did was on the blue flower on the third card.  All the other images Ginny printed in color.

Thank you, Ginny, for the wonderful kit - and making me go outside my box using images that I normally would not use....Love them!!!!

Just a thought:

What a great promise!!!

Thanks for stopping by today...God bless you!!!!!

August kit (from Kelly)

September kit (from Krista)

and the October kit (from Soni)

Being on vacation is allowing me to spend some time in the craft room - LOL!!!!  I needed to build up my stash of cards again was starting to dwindle.

A little something to encourage you today:

God bless you today!!!  Thanks for stopping by today and spending a few moments with me.  Have a very blessed day!!!
