MICHAEL STRONG BLOG HOP

We are having a summer theme blog hop for the MSRS group. Here are two cards that I have made. I used his vase stamped on black and embossed with gold. I added some 3d stickers and a little bit of lace at the top.
Here is my second one. Done up similar to the first and using the cute small hemmingbird. I love flowers and books so this sticker is perfect.

Thanks for hoping with us. Below are the others in the hop.

SUMMER CHALLENGE FOR MSRS GROUP

This is for the Michael Strong group I belong to and he has us making a summer card for a July and august challenge. So this is using the same cards that already have the scalloped hole in it and adding some stickers. I was looking for a book sticker but couldn't find any so used a sandcastle one. Looking at it now I see I should have added some of the blue sky to the sun that is in the inner part of the card...... oh well you live and learn as you go.lol.
I used some of Tim Holtz inks to add the sand color is antique linen and the blue sky is tumbled glass. 

CHALLENGE AT LADY ANNE'S

Here is my first challenge that Lady Anne is having on her new site. Come over and visit her.We are to use one layer and one embellishment and her is mine. I needed a thank you card. I already had these great cards that have the scalloped circle so I use a new stamp that says gthanks in that part and just added the ribbon.

This is for a new blog challenge that Teresa A is starting, sorry forgot her last name will include it in my next challenge,lol. But you are given a digi to use or can use what you want so here is what I made from the digi given to us to use.
I used color pencils and makres on the flower, then used liquid laquer 3d on the water drops. I also did a frame from my Picasa program.

A couple new cards

Here are a couple simple cards I made this week.
The card is for a mingle swap. This one went to a lady named Leo and she hosted it. We had to use gold and glitter. So my new stamp I received from another group, the little vase is what I used. I embossed it with gold the put some dark glitter, a reddish color on it in spots, then added top dry to see if I could set the glitter. I also added some gold leaves to the vase.


This one is for a music swap. I bought these cards already with the circle in them. I embossed it the use some stickers for the music part.


And this is for a girly one for one of my groups monthly challenge's.

UNABLE TO GET INTO BLOG,LOL

After trying last nite to get into my blog and not being able to I was so fed up that I gave up and got a new password and couldn't get in last nite but finally got into it today..........what a huge pain especially since my computer was going so slow. So here are a couple of new cards that I have made.


The top one is an anniversary card for some friends. The card already had the window in it and I just embossed it and added some dimensional stickers. Same for the bottom one but it was a birthday card.    Sorry the embossing doesn't show up very well!
