Well hello there and a happy Monday to you! I hope that you all had a nice weekend, I certainly did! Saturday Jim and I did a little Christmas shopping and then headed over to my Brother’s house for Daniel’s 4th Birthday Party! Can you imagine that he is 4 already?! Here is a picture of the Birthday boy with his little sister…

They are just too damn cute! Daniel was a big fan of Jim, he spent the better part of a half hour hitting him with a ballon which he thought was absolutely hysterical!! We got him tickets to go and see Monster Jam in February, Jim is going to bring his Nephew too. Yesterday I did a few things in the morning, Jim stopped by on his way to a party over by my house for a quick visit. Later on Taylor came by and we watched some TV to finish the day. This morning I have a bunch of errands to run and then Sue is supposed to stop by and pick up some stuff from me! 😀

To start off the week I have a card to share with you for the Paper Players challenge…

I dug out an old set that is still one of my favorites! I stamped the pinecones from the Simon Says Stamp with Concord & 9th Cozy Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Brown, Cup O Joe and Sand to Chocolate Brown Ombre Ink using my Mini MISTI. They are cut out with the Coordinating Die. My background is stamped in Moss Hybrid Ink using the Concord & 9th Plaid Background Photopolymer Stamp. I stamped the lines in Delicata Celestial Copper Pigment Ink and then used my Heat Tool to make sure they were dry. The background is adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My greeting is from the Cozy Christmas Set and is stamped in Moss Hybrid on a strip of Solar White 80lb. I used some 3M Foam Tape to adhere to pinecones and greeting to the card and it’s done! I love those pinecones and that plaid background is definitely becoming a favorite too! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thank you for starting you week off here with me! Have a magnificent Monday! 🙂

Wednesday already! This week is on the fast track. What I thought was going to be a nice quiet morning yesterday was anything but. I spoke to Andrea in the morning and found out that one of her horses had passed away. Then my Mum needed me to help her with some things. Next up was a letter that I had to write for the event on Sunday to see if we could get some footage of an interview. Busy, but I like it that way! Taylor came by last night and we had Wendy’s for dinner after she left I got a text from Kim that her cat Haligan was hit by a car. Not a good week for pets at all. With Winston that makes three so we should be good for a while. I’m going to spend a little time in the Stampin’ Galley doing some more purging this morning, I had so much fun last time! 😀

Today I have my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew to share with you…

My card started out with me stamping the Concord & 9th Plaid Background Photopolymer Stamp in Black Licorice onto piece of Classic Cherry using my Mini MISTI. I trimmed it down and then stamped the stripes in Delicata Golden Glitz Pigment Ink. The fun wood heart is from the Concord & 9th Cozy Up Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Black Licorice onto some Desert Storm 80lb. I used the Coordinating Die to cut it out. My greeting is also from the Cozy Up Set and is heat embossed in WOW! Rich Pale Gold Embossing Powder. I adhered the background to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and the heart to complete the card. I love that black and red plaid background with the gold pigment ink stripes! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG for some more inspiration and let’s see your card in the gallery! Thank you for coming by today! Have a wondrous Wednesday! 🙂

25 Days of Christmas Tags 2017 – Concord & 9th

25 Days of Christmas Tags 2017 – Concord & 9th

Hi again!! Feels like I was just here! LOL! I’m back to join Tracey McNeely for her 25 Days of Christmas Tags event! I’m so happy to represent one of my favorite stamp companies Concord & 9th and the amazing Where Creativity Meets C9 design team!  If you’ve never heard of Where Creativity Meets C9, we’re a challenge blog celebrating our love for Concord & 9th. We have a monthly challenge and you should definitely come by a check us out!

I’m actually a big fan of making tags for the Holiday’s and since I make a lot the simpler the better! For my tag shape I cut out a piece of Tropical Sea Card stock with the tree from the Concord & 9th Trim the Tree Dies. My greeting is heat embossed in Red Tinsel Embossing Powder using a greeting from the Concord & 9th Trim the Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set. On the top I used a hole punch so I had a place to tie a piece of Pool Party Ribbon. For little sparkle I adhered some Little Things by Lucy Pool Shimmer Jewels. A nice simple sparkly tag that will make the Holiday’s even more festive!

If this is the first you’re hearing of Tracey’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event make sure to head here to read all about it and enter your tags for a chance to win a prize from one of these fabulous sponsors:

Hello friends. I missed my post on Friday because I woke up and found my little friend Winston had passed away in the night. I miss him so much. I can’t remember a time that he hasn’t been around. I was lucky enough to have spent 16 years with my best friend. It really is true, your furry friends become a part of the family and the loss leaves a big empty space. Heather came over on Friday and spent the day with me working from my house. I managed to keep myself busy over the weekend. I spent the morning at Jim’s on Saturday and then we went to dinner and watched a few episodes of The Fall. Yesterday I was at the Glam Slam Fundraiser and that was a lot of fun! I ran into someone that I used to work with at Pergament back when I was 18!! Such a small world. 😀

To start off the week I have my card for the Paper Players challenge…

One of my favorite challenges! Onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I added a piece of Solar White 80lb that I embossed with the We R Memory Keepers Woodgrain Embossing Folder. My tree is cut from another piece of Solar White 110lb using the Concord & 9th Trim the Tree Die. I used the lights from the Concord & 9th Trim the Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set and WOW! Rich Pale Gold Embossing Powder on my die cut tree and then adhered it to the card with 3M Foam Tape. The greeting is from the Concord & 9th Christmas Cheer Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed onto a piece of Solar White 80lb that I cut out with the Concord & 9th Ribbon Banner Die with more Rich Pale Gold Embossing Powder. Some more 3M Foam Tape adheres that to the tree and the card is done. I do love a white on white card, you can do so much with a little dimension! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thank you for coming by to see me on a Monday! Have a great day! 🙂

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Christmas!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Christmas!

Hi all! Not as dreary here yesterday but still crisp! I had a very nice productive day with Sue! We got stuff done and went out and had a nice lunch! I got home around 3:30 and Jim came by after work. We grabbed some Italian for dinner and watched a little TV. We are all done with Ozark and will be starting season 2 of Stranger Things soon! Hope it’s as good as the first one! This morning I’m off to Manhattan to see my friends Jon and Mary. Oh how I love my little trips into the city! 😀

It’s that time again! A new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th blog starts today…

Another chance to make a simple easily duplicated Holiday card and this one is definitely that! Onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I stamped the trees from the Concord & 9th O Christmas Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set in Noble Fir, Jalapeño and Freshly Cut Grass along the bottom. The greeting is stamped in Noble Fir and I used my Gold Signo Gel Pen to add a little “snow”! I actually did make a few while I had the supplies out, good to make a dent in the stack of Holiday cards! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Christmas Challenge! My Teammates have made some great cards to inspire you so head on over the BLOG head over and check them out! You have all month to play along and we hope you will share your card with us in the gallery! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook! Thanks for coming by and visiting with me!

Simple Pine Merry & Bright – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Simple Pine Merry & Bright – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Surprise! I haven’t done a weekend post in a few weeks! But it’s time for my Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! We featured a Shades of Concord & 9th Challenge for last month so I made a super simple Holiday card using teals and green!

The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the Merry & Bright from the Concord & 9th Ornamental Photopolymer Stamp Set in Peacock and then stamped the pine branches in Jalapeño around it. To add my little dots I used a stylus with Peacock and Merman Ink. I felt it needed a little something more so I added some more dots with my Silver Signo Gel Pen. Super simple Holiday card that’s easy to make and you could change up the colors to suit whatever your favorites are!

I hope that you like the card for my November Solo Post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! You can also see this post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook!

Happy Friday! What a nice day it was yesterday! Sunny and warm! Manhattan was great, I had a nice visit with Diane and then went up to the Isabel O’Neil Studio to help out Beth with a few things. Kim and I went to Schnipper’s for lunch and had some pretty good burgers. I also walked everywhere about 65 blocks! Last night we had another meeting for the fundraiser next week and then Jim and I grabbed a quick dinner and I came home. I got a haircut this morning and now I going to call my friend Greg. Shaping up to be a pretty good Friday! 😀

I did manage to squeeze in a card this morning and it’s for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

I grabbed my Concord & 9th Christmas Cheer Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp Set and my MISTI to stamp a panel with Black Licorice. I adhered it to a piece of Black 110lb and then adhered that to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Another piece of Black 110lb is embossed with the We R Memory Keepers Wave Next Level Embossing Folder and adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My greeting is stamped in Black Licorice onto a piece of Solar White 110lb that I cut out with the Concord & 9th Ribbon Banner Die. That is adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares and the card is done! Simple black and white makes for an elegant Christmas card, don’t you agree?! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thanks for coming by! Have a fantastic Friday! 🙂

WOW! It’s cold here this morning! In the 30’s… way too cold for me! I had a pretty productive day yesterday, got to speak to my friend Greg in Indiana for a bit. Always good to catch up with him! I also got a bunch of laundry done and around 9:00 last night I realized that it was Halloween! I guess we didn’t have very many trick-or-treaters. This morning we will figure out where the horrible smell of gasoline is coming from in my apartment. I think something leaked in the garage, not pleasant. I keep having to run outside and it’s too cold for that now! LOL! 😀

Mid-week and time for a new challenge over on the Paper Craft Crew blog…

Today’s card was started by stamping the Concord & 9th Blooms Fill-In Photopolymer Stamp Set, I used Minty Fresh for the background and then filled in the images with Lobster, Cranberry, Sunflower and Noble Fir. The Coordinating Die cuts out one of the flower clusters, I saved what was left to use on a future project. Next up I used the squished hexagon Die from the Concord & 9th Blooms Fill-In Dies to cut out a piece of Desert Storm 80lb. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th Christmas Cheer Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Noble Fir. To my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I added a strip of Chili Pepper across the lower half and then adhered my hexagon and flower cluster with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I used another one of the Dies to cut out a piece of Noble Fir and tucked the little leaves under my hexagon. For something a little different I added a few Theresa Collins Santa’s List Enamel Dots to finish the card. I do love that Blooms Fill-In Stamp! It’s such a neat idea! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! There is more to see over on the BLOG so be sure and stop by! Thank you for coning by to see me today! Have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

Hi there my friends and a happy Monday to you from rainy Long Island! I had a very nice weekend starting on Friday by picking up Jim’s new couch and setting it up in his den. Saturday he came by and we worked on the kitchen cabinets. It’s a lot more work than I originally anticipated but he was a huge help and we got a lot done! Still a lot more to go but we’ll get there! Yesterday was rainy and windy, one of those sit on the couch and watch TV kind of days. This morning I’ll be heading over to see Heather for a bit, can’t wait to get out of the house! LOL! 😀

I got up this morning and made my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

I went down the first column! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The background is a piece of Tropical Sea cut to 4″ wide. I stamped the dots from the Concord & 9th Trim the Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set In Yeti Ink. The tree is cut from Silver Glitter Card using the Concord & 9th Trim the Tree Dies. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th Ornamental Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a strip of 65lb Vellum. I adhered the tree to the background and then the Vellum around the back before adding it to my card base. A few Pretty Pink Posh Silver Sequins finish the card! Teal and Silver make a pretty nice holiday combo and I love that big sparkly tree! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thank you for staring your week off here with me! Have an awesome Monday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 310

Another somewhat gloomy fall like day yesterday. I worked on a bunch of projects in the morning and squeezed in a little TV too. Last night I went over to Jim’s and we met up with Laura and Michelle and went over to the venue for the fundraiser to check out and brainstorm a few ideas. After that we went and had dinner, it’s nice to get to meet really nice people and Laura and Michelle are just that! This morning I have some projects to complete and then who know what I’ll be up to later! 😀

Today I have a card to share with you for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

I’m really loving that Concord & 9th Blooms Fill-In Stamp! I used Black Licorice and my Mini MISTI to stamp the background and then filled the images in with Jalapeño, Noble Fir, Merman, Peacock and Sunflower. There are two flower clusters on the background that you can cut out with the Coordinating Dies, I cut one of them out. Then I trimmed the leftover and adhered it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My greeting is from the same set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Peacock. I added that to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The cut out flower cluster is then adhered with 3D Foam Squares and the card is done! I’m having so much fun with that background that I left it in my MISTI so I can stamp a few more later! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your Thursday everyone! 🙂
