My Friend, My Partner, My Love - Thank You





I'm back, again, already! Are you tired of seeing me, yet?! This time, I want to tell you abut our new challenge at Open Minded Crafting. Just in time for Thanksgiving, we have the perfect challenge. Our challenge them, this fortnight, is "Grateful." We want to see your creations of gratitude, whether it be Thanksgiving or just a general thank you card. Anything you can think of, to show gratitude or to give thanks.  You have two weeks to play along with us, so surely you can fit us into your holiday festivities, right?!

We always have lots of awesome prizes up for grabs, too, and this time is no exception!  Create and link up with us, for your chance to win goodies from these oh so generous sponsors:

















Oh, I'm sure you want to hear the nitty gritty details about my card while you're here, too, don't you? I hope so, because I'm going to tell you about it! LOL!

I went with a thank you/love card, this time. My card Uses the image, Flowery Bride Mon Amour,from The East Wind, colored with Promarkers. This card would be great to say thank you to that special love in your life, or could be used, also, as a wedding card to your new husband. For my card layout, I've used the sketch at Seems A Little Sketchy. I wanted to add some color, so I went with shades of pink red with black and a touch of purple.  (After all, everything is better with a little - or a lot - of purple!) I trimmed the image at a funky angle to add a fun twist to the card layout.  Plus, it made a great place for me to stagger my sentiment.  I love how it turned out.

What?! Santa Has Enough Reindeer?!



Good early morning, everyone! Are you excited? I hope so, because its New Release Tuesday at Bugaboo Stamps! We have some adorable new images for you, today, too, like this one - Puppy - Enough Reindeer. Isn't he just the cutest lilttle puppy you've ever seen?! I just fell in love with him when I seen him! He's just the thing for your Christmas cards,  What?! You haven't started on Christmas cards yet?! Oh, my, then you better get started! Why don't you start with picking up this little guy, and maybe a few others, from the Bugaboo Stamps store?

You can see all the fun creations from the Bugaboo Stamps DT using this little fella, over at Catch The Bug.  Then, check out the Bugaboo Stamps store, for this image and lots of others, for your card making needs!


My card uses one of today's new release image and sentiment set, Puppy - Enough Reindeer, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. All papers used are scraps from my scrap bin. (Gotta use up those scraps so we can buy more paper and make MORE scraps, right?!)  My card layout uses the sketch at Seems A Little Sketchy. I went with a fun mix of patterns this time, with tartan (plaid), santa and snowflakes. I felt they were perfect for this poor little reindeer puppy, so hopeful, as he stands out in the snow. I embellished with two pointsetta flowers, backed with burlap. The flower centers are jazzed up with tiny pearls.  I added glitter to the puppy's hat, the bells on his color and the snow beneath him.

This card was made to send a wonderful male friend of mine, for Christmas.  I'm sure he will love it - He doesnt mind if there are flowers on the card, for Christmas! :D
