Go Metallic! - ODBDSLC84

Hello Delightful friends and family,
Just a quick post:
I'm participating in the challenge to Go Metallic!! at Our Daily Bread Design.  And those two words inspired this card.   I kept it pretty simple in design, I hope you like it.

The stamp set I've used is called Christmas Verses (ODBD) which I've stamped with Versamark and embossed with Ranger Gold Embossing Powder.  The beautiful gold and cream designer paper is from K&Company (a couple of seasons old, I'm not sure the name of the collection - it came in a 12x12 pad) the holly leaves and berries are a gold foil embossed into the paper. The card stock is from Bazzill and the ribbon is American Crafts.  I've used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 22.  I've embellished with Tiny Twinkles, gold (Taylored Expressions).  The EK Success border punch is called Scallop Diamond, the Corner Punch is also from EK Success.  I've used the Cuttlebug to cut and dry emboss.

Thanks for looking and commenting, may you have a blessed day!

Thankful Blast from the Past

Hello Delightful friends and family!  Glad you've come to visit and I'm sure you are here for the Blast from the Past Blog Hop featuring the fun stamps from Taylored Expressions! The theme for the November hop is "Thankful". We are to create a card or project to show our thankfulness. It can be a card to send a friend or a simple 'thank you' for the always needed stash of thank you cards!

 The stamps are older sets released before September 2011 and it's exciting to be able to participate again this month! We have a fabulous sketch to work from, it is optional but it sure is a great way to get the creative juices flowing (thank you Sankari)!  I'm using the stamp sets In the Park and It's In the Bag, today. I've paper pieced the leaves using BoBunny (Forever Fall collection) designer paper.  It was a great way to use up some of the scraps!  You will find the list of participants at the end of this post. Enjoy!!

Sketch Challenge at ODBD

Hello Delightful friends and family!
'Tis the season... This is the card I've made for the sketch challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBDSLC83).  A random drawing determines the winner of a $15 gift certificate to be used at the ODBD store and I'm just going to confess this: there is a stamp set I'd really like to get for a project I'm doing for our Ladies Ministry Christmas Party.  Do I NEED it? Probably not a need but...  it has a Scripture verse with it that would be ideal for what I'm doing.  So I'd best get this posted so I'll at least have the opportunity to win!
Ingredients:  Stamp: Our Daily Bread Designs, Luke 2:11 set; Designer Paper: Girls Paperie;  Card Stock: Bazzill; Ribbon: American Crafts; Inks: Archival: Olive; Distress Ink, Shabby Shutters; Memento: Tuxedo Black; Adhesive Pearls: Kaiser Craft; Glimer Glam (Organic Garden), Tattered Angels;  Image colored with Copics: R37, R46;YG95, G97.  Spellbinders Nestabilies: Labels Twenty-Two, Cuttlebug.

Thank you for looking and may you have a real blessed weekend!

Happy Birthday, Cupcake!

Thanks for visiting today.  I only have pics of my youngest granddaughters birthday to share no crafty card, today!

The baby version of "Rub your head and Pat your tummy" (Chew on hand and Pull off sock)

She was fascinated by the noise and lights on her new toy from Grammie and Poppa!

She loved her new blanket from Gee-Gee (great grandma) "so cozy" (as cousin Addy would say!)

Cupcake time!

Delish!! (The pink marks on her forehead is lipstick from Gee-Gee!)

Kisses for her new baby!

Big sister enjoyed her cupcake and the celebration, too!  Fun day!

Happy Birthday Tucker Lynn!

Hello Delightful friends and family!  Today is our youngest granddaughter's 1st birthday! Tomorrow is her party so you can count on more pictures to come!

Last weekend we went to the school Harvest Festival and then the next day my son Sean, granddaugher Riley Ann and I went to the pumpkin patch. 

They found the face painting booth! 
And the cotton candy!

Addy chowing down on all that sugar (yikes!)

Riley jumping the bales in true athletic form! 

Picking out a good pumpkin with her daddy.
Yummy! A refreshing treat!
