Gina K Design November 2020 Monthly Mix Challenge

 Hello again....

What's happening you are probably asking. We don't hear from her for months and months and then suddenly 2 posts in one day! All I can say is when the gardening season ends for me, I start stamping!

I am playing along with the monthly challenge over at Gina K Designs. For November 2020 the challenge is to make a card with a tag on it and there is a colour theme of red and white.


I have used an older sweet set called Winter Mittens which has a coordinating Spellbinders die. I am still upset that I missed the Kit release this month or I would have used a tag from that but I did miss it so used another tag die and an embossing folder on the tag for some visual interest. Sparkly background paper and a satin bow and the sentiment is from Gina K Designs Seasonal Greetings stamp set.

Thanks so much for visiting. Please leave me your comments as I love to read them. Stay safe everybody. Cheers.

My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #514

 Hello everyone....

Well, it certainly has been a long while since I posted anything! It has been a crazy year for everyone, our family included but we are all safe and healthy for which I am thankful.

I have a card to share for the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge which you can see here.

I have used the Joy Wreath die set and also the separate Joy die for my card, along with an embossing folder. I decided to keep everything silver and gold (thinking of Burl Ives singing on Rudolph I guess) and I have used some gold sparkly ribbon to make the horizontal lines.



Thanks so very much for stopping by. Do leave me a comment if you have a moment and have a wonderful and safe day. Cheers.

MFT February 2020 Birthday Project Challenge

Hello there...

I have a card to share today for the My Favorite Things February 2020 Birthday challenge. The necessary element since it was February was to use a heart on the card.

I have used the Adorable Elephants stamp set along with Brushstroke Expressions for the sentiment and there are lots of hearts in evidence.


Thanks so very much for visiting. Your kind comments are always much appreciated. Cheers.

Gina K Designs February 2020 Challenge

Welcome everyone....

I am playing along with the February challenge over at Gina K Designs which is to add texture to our cards.

I have used a really old stamp set from Gina K Designs that I still love as it has a great sentiment to accompany it. Alas, I cannot remember the name.


The texture on my card comes in two forms, an embossing folder in a knit design and also some felt flowers and leaves.


Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day. Cheers.

MFT Sketch Challenge 477

Hello and welcome...

I have a card to share today for the MFT Sketch challenge. Here is the sketch.


For my card I used that adorable stamp set...Polar Bear Pals. I just got the matching die set so that made it really easy to cut out the bear and the fish bucket.


Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day. Cheers.
