This card if for the PTI MIM glitter challenge.  The edge of the half and half die is glittered up.  This card is also for the Paper players sketch challenge. 

We got a few new dogs in our neighborhood so we made up some fun baskets. 
While not in any challenges, this card is another favorite of mine that the girls did.  Cece colored both dogs.  So much fun!

It's a good life!

Christ First, last and always

My oldest just finished up her season of volleyball on Tuesday.  Now, I love my kids and love watching her play, but my little one and I both said it was so nice to be home last night.  We both got creative up in the stamping room and LOVED it!  

I am entering this card in two challenges.  The first is a new one to me it is called Global Design project.  The challenge was create a card with Green, Black and Gold.  Cece created a card as well, but she isn't done yet, so we will finish tonight and get it posted.  We both thought of Christmas and it was fun to get the stamps out.  This was my fist time using Holiday Green Borders from PTI and the vintage ornaments II dies.  I also used my Paper Smooches have faith for the first time too.  
 I had to take a close up of the ornaments, you just couldn't see the shine and sheen in the first picture.
I busted out some gold lux paper from papertrey as well.  It feels so good to use some of the supplies I have been hoarding.  It looks different on the back ornaments because I added a layer of black polka dot vellum with glossy accents and it really made them pop. 

The second challenge is Word Art Wednesday.  I love playing along when I get a chance.  They are such an inspirational group.  I thought this worked so well for their challenge this week.  That message of remembering all that Christ has done for us is a great reminder in the holiday season. 

It's a good life!

Trick or Treat

Hello Everyone, happy Wednesday!  So excited to share a few cards today.  The first was my first one I tried and it was for Papertreyink's Make It Monday challenge build a wreath.  Wouldn't you know with my big stash I don't have any wreaths in the coffers.  So, I had to really pick it up and get creative.  I think the spider web trio die really is helping me with this.  
 Then I saw the challenge CAS Spooky challenge on The Paper Players website and thought, I want to try it again and make it a bit more CAS than the prior one.  I'm also going to try and do a few videos and improve on my skills.  I have a fantastic room and I think it will help me use it more.  Always looking for a new and fun challenge.  This is only the second video and I am on the hunt for some new details.  I am looking for suggestions for lighting and movie editing equipment.

 Here is a close up.  All of the stamps are from and oldie, but goodie PTI spooky stamps.  Love how classic and timeless the papertreyink stamps are. 
It's a good life!
