Snow is good...

Though I dread these intensely cold days, I really love snow...we all do in this family. This lo isn't hot off the press however it best describes our daily activities during winter break and all! Just a quick note the snowflakes on these pages are actually trees cut several times from Cricuts Christmas Cheer.Have a Merry Christmas!BR-T

At the moment it is a balmy -7 ugh... how do I cope a bright and cheery card of course! I have seen others use the circle to make amazing trees and flowers so I thought today was the day. This card was easy peasy to make: using a longer and shorter flourish I created the base of a flower and extra foliage. I used my circle punches to cut out three different sized circles stamped and distressed then layered them and quartered another circle for petals. Lastly I added a brad and used foam squares for added height.

Color Challenge # 38

I cannot believe it has been over a month since my last post!!! Busy, busy, busy is the name of the game. I was checking out the CTMH bb and came across Marjorie Eno's color challenge of Tulip, Kiwi, Topiary and Colonial White. After quartering circles for quite some time here is what I came upon....

A big Thank You goes out to Marjorie Ann Eno from the CTMH bb for her continuing challenges! In the end I found myself pleased with this card but wow, it was a crazy path that lead me here.

Is tomorrow Christmas?

I swear if I didn't know better, I'd believe tomorrow was Christmas! I cannot go anywhere without seeing major signs that this great holiday is upon us, commercially speaking that is... Here are some more BR-T style Christmas cards that I know if it weren't for God's amazing gift of creation I'd never have been able to make.

I love seasonal card making! These little Halloween Dingbats are too cute and even though they are a retired set may they never truly R.I.P.

The rest from last night...

Here are the brighter cards I made last night, they are intended for the Sheldon Art
Museum gallery gift shop! I love my new quest!

As fast as I can!

After Close To My Heart altered their Angel policy I set a goal for myself to find 10 locations to sell my cards and I do believe by the end of this week I will have met 70% of my goal! I am so excited about this my original thought is Only One Made, and I'm making them as fast as I can which isn't really fast at all, but that's fine.....it's what suits me best.

Many happy returns...

I don't know what it is about Free Spirit but I always come back to this set. I love the circular phrases, the flourishes and the fact it speaks volumes of the season.

My first ATC...

Thanks to Tiffany J. I have completed my first set of Artist Trading Cards. Mine was in the anything goes as long as one thing is CTMH. I took some interesting pictures in Vegas last year so I thought I'd use a photo as the main emphasis. I tweaked the image with a few digital enhancements pleasing to my eye and the rest just sort of happened. The second image is using a spare ATC and putting it on a card.
