Fox Friend


This is my January-February card for the Christmas CraZy group on SCS.  We are in our third year of this fun group.  Pansy took over in 2018 for the group that Jeanette had organized the year before.  We each receive a card kit from another person in the group and made a card with the image and papers sent.  

For this round, I was matched with Jen and received a cute image from Stampendous. She also included some great patterned Christmas paper. I added some red candy dot brads with some thick white baker's twine for an embellishment.   I hope Jen and the others like my card! 

Here is the inside of my card, with the sweet sentiment!

It is Friday, so  that means that I am back with another card for The Project Bin Stamps--A Way With Words!  Every Friday,  I post a card made from one of their great photopolymer stamp sets.  So, please plan to come back each week to see what I have created--I think you too will love these great sentiment stamp sets.  And, remember, some of the sets come with matching steel dies! Denise is the owner, founder and creator of these wonderful stamp sets.  The sentiments she has for us to ink up are just perfect for any holiday or time of year.  Please be sure to go and check them out!

I added some Wink of Stella to the Heart, so there is some shimmer and shine in real life, but hard to see here.

Galentine Weekend Swap


This is the card I used for a shoe-box swap this past weekend at Galentine's Weekend!  This card was totally inspired by this card by Chris.

This retreat was set up by Sarah and 12 of us spend 3 1/2 days the Gather House in Waunakee, WI and had a wonderful time. We ate great food, laughed a lot and we all did create some projects.  We also planned a shoe-box swap, so throughout the weekend, we were able to pick up a box and create a cute Stampin' Up card. I did make some wonderful cards.

Praying for You




It is the 10th of the month and that means it is time for my card for the monthly themed swap that Terry is hosting on SCS.  Each month she will post a theme and we make cards using any stamp set we believe follows that thought. This is our 37th month and the theme for February is "Branching Outy". We were to use trees, leaves, wood grain, birds, nests, etc., I decided to go with one of my favorite Stampin' Up sets--Thoughts & Prayers for a sympathy or thinking of you card.  I am sure there will be some wonderful cards this month. 

Here is the inside of my card:



I hope Terry and the others swappers like my card this month too! Terry has already posted the March theme.  Be sure to come back in to see what we create!
