This is going for two challenges! Marksfinestpaper for  Things with wings #74. And Outlawz CAS0925 which is to use just black and white. I have been making some of these crisscross cards so thought this would work out just fine for both. I did emboss both colors with the swiss dot folder but not sure you can see it in the white.

Sketch card for MSS GROUP

This is my card for the sketch challenge at the Michael Strong yahoo group. I really struggle with sketche's so was happy that this one got done,lol.
My brain keeps telling me I should have put the flower on the left but wanted it to show up so put it on the right!! This will be a birthday card. Just need to add that to the bottom of the card.

This is just another fun card using one of  Michael Stongs stamps,  it is the new one  Silhouette Fan  this is such a pretty stamp set. You get 4 stamps and I used the small one twice on this card. The little half circle on the top of the tag then stamped it twice and made the circle on the ribbon. The tag is a new stamp I found at Walmart for 97 cents!! 

Just fun cards!

I am using the colors of orange and blue so will post it today! I used the Michael Strong large and small dragon fly.  It still needs something but not sure what???

This is for the OUTLAWZ challenge to make a card using a song as your inspiration.......well I heard this on a commerical today or somewhere,lol and it was TUTTI FRUITI,LOL. And this is the card I came up with,lot of fruiti colors,lol. And this is Micheal Strongs new stamp. I stamped it twice to make the circle then colored them in with colored pencils, some gel pens with glitter and some clear glitter pen! I also played with the goo be gone again on this.


This is for the outlawz site and your had to use two of anything on your card. On this card I stamped 4 leaves then on the leave on the bottom left and the leave on the top right I stamped them again and cut them out and added them on top of those leaves, it's kinda hard to see the dimension on here. 


This is for Marks Finest papers challenge and you where to use a punch on your card. I used a Martha Stewart punch on mine. I also colored the light house with colored pencils and used some goo be gone on it to blend the color a little. It is the first time tring this.

This is for a challenge at stamptv, you had to make the sentiment the focal point, embossed it somewhere, and sew on it. So my sewing is around the squares. It is a simple card too. I seem to be in mood to make lots of simple ones these days.

Well this one was a hard one since none of my pretty papers seem to have what I wanted on them,lol. So I decided to play around and while I was sizing up the paper to fit the card I saw the little strips and have wanted to try a weave so thought why not and this is what I came up with...... The colors where Aqua,Fog(GRAY) and Sand!! Pretty colors if you got them,lol.

Sorry about the picture still trying to learn how to take a good picture and since it is raining out can't go out!!


Here are two cards that I

made using the free digi from The Outlawz free digi section and SANDI HUGGETT made it! You can find hers under SANDISAMPLES on the outlawz site. And she already colored these one so that makes it so much easier for us who don't color very good yet! Thank you Sandi!!

This is for stamptv and you had to use pink and white and you could add one other color. My color is green. This looks better in person then it scanned. Really need to get Piacas added to my computer soon.


Hello this is for the challenge at MARKS FINEST PAPERS and it is to put some bing on your card. So mine has glitter background paper around the lighthouse and some pearls in the corners.

This one was a hard color for me. And this is what I cam up with!

This is an easy layout that I go back to at times when I am having a duh moment,lol.


This is a simple one too use two patterns of paper,1 image and 3 embishments. So my image is the butterfly, the papers are flower and strip papers and the embishments are ribbon,balloon,and the bling on the butterfly and happy biirthday!
