This is my card for at the OUTLAWZ TWISTED THURSDAY. It started out as a tag or banner as I think these are called.
I received a big book of them like you get for scrapbooking but this is all kraft colored and lots of different shapes and size's. Forgot I had it till today when looking for something else,lol. Well I made a card for my hubby who's birthday is coming up on the first of Feb.

I used a paperclip to hold it closed for the picture. The feather and trim all Dazzles from paperwishe's and so is the stamp. The stamp is on a set of feather stamps and the papers are from the ones that have feathers also, just forget the name of them.

The inside is also from paperwishe's, the happy birthday is a stamp that I have had for a long time. The sentiment outline is from a kit I got from paperwish's .

That's it.

This is our sketch for this month at MICHAEL STRONG group.
 And here is my take on it. The little hearts are one of Mikes mini set of 4 stamps.

I used gold and a burgundy embossing powder on the hearts.

Here is the PROGRESSIVE FREEBIE CHALLENGE at the OUTLAWZ. This is just so pretty and can be done in so many colors. It was given to us By Sandi and her is a link to her site.  Here is my card. I did it up in 3 colors but since the printer printed them so close i could not get the blue one, the one i really liked,lol, so here it is in orange. It didn't photograph very pretty but looks nice in person.
  I scored it down each side and top and bottom but it doesn't show up very well.

This is my first card of the new year. It is a water colored stamped image. I used some water color pencils to color in the a water brush to blend. The image is a large stamp of pansies my favorite flower. It is for my mother in law.
 I used the textured side of the water colored paper. I embossed the card stock with the cane folder and layered my image on it. She will be 86.
The inside was done with some gold Dazzles and a  saying. I rounded the corners of some back card stock and put the saying on it.

Well it is snowing and raining here with high winds, so I think i will go read another book and have a hot cup of green tea with some orange slice's.

Have a great day!

Just getting into more reading and tried my hand at winning some autographed books by authors and won two. Both are cosy mysteries and new  to me. Although i did have a couple of  Cleo Coyle books but hadn't had time to read them. I won her ONCE UPON A GRIND book and loved it. Then just this past week i won one by KRISTA DAVIS  called MURDER MOST HOWL. Can't wait to read it. Right now i am reading  TRICKY TWENTY  ONE by  JANET EVANOVICH that i got for christmas. Also got  Patricia Cornwell's new one  DEPRAVED HEARTS. Hubby got me another book by Cleo Coyle. So looking forward to doing some reading.
 Both books come with recipe's also.


Here are a few of the cards i made for 2015 for Christmas.

These are made with my ANNA GRIFFIN christmas kit that i bought last year(2014), it still has lots of stuff left in it.

 The last three are made using stuff from PAPERWISHES. A little hard to photograph with the shiny cardstock,lol.

A few more christmas cards

Made a few of these with some new embossing folders,added some fed ribbons along the sides then tied in a not. another bridge card. ...
