CAS0710 Outlawz Challenge


This card was made without any dsp. or any embellishments. The snowballs and buttons were made using a paper hole punch leftovers.!! Popped the snowman up and just ripped the paper to make it look like snow drifts!!

Flowers Real and a Card...

I was outside the other day and saw a opportunity to take some cool photos of some of my flowers.. now don't ask what they are called as I have no idea!!!!! :) Just love how bright the red is on the first picture!
The card took me two days to figure out.. :( and I am still not happy with it.. the color of the leaves..the holes on bottom aren't straight.. even though it looked straight.. maybe i should make another one to perfect it.. so critical..
Anyhow I am going down to the craft cave to make a card for a challenge for the Outlawz...

Teacher gift

Today was my sons graduation from kindergarten.. All of the students were sent home with a sheet to color Their favorite thing about kindergarten.. and sign their name. and a picture of themselves..well the album turned out fantastic..I altered the front inside and back .. the pictures aren't to clear but i think you get the idea!!! We used a 8x8 album and with minor adjustments to the paper I slipped them in.The pictures are blurry and I need to figure out how to take proper pictures in a classroom and gym :).

Sympathy Card

Hi Everyone!!!
Well My husband came home last night and told me a friend had just lost her father.. so sad..
anyhow he asked if I had a card in my stash (yes I am a card hoarder).Well I didn't really have anything so off to my desk I went!! I did make 2 different cards for him to choose from. Loved both but he chose the thoughts and prayer (tree ) card. I took pictures very late with no sunlight and I will post them just to show the difference between sunlight and night shots.. wow!!! Here they are....



The first card was made with a dark blue c/s ,very vanilla,and the awash with flowers stamp set and of course some blue brads, square lattice embossing folder.
Ink I used .. night of navy,pear pizzaz,basic black.

Second card was made with some early espresso,old olive,very vanilla c/s ,square lattice embossing folder and tree stamp from thoughts and prayers stamp set ,retired with sympathy stamp.

Fathers Day Card and gift...




My husband never wants a gift ..so I make him stuff for his office and he loves it!
So today trying to think what to make him.. ohh lets alter some items. I had a notebook,note pad,paper weight.. I love how they turned out .They look like leather!!!! Hoping they dry properly a little tacky right now.

I have posted 2 versions of the card.. Number 1 is without the brads and I thought that it just needed that extra bling!! I sponged all the edges to make it look aged.
Well off to put the kiddo to bed..
ttfn

The Best website for Food!!!

http://www.tasteofbeirut.com/
This is the website I go to and check out the many recipes I make for my husband!! I love her recipes and her pictures are amazing!!! I dare you to  make something from here and not like it!!! Joumana you rock!!!!
 This is my favorite dessert... My hubby brought some back for me and my father inlaw always jokes that he is going to get me some.. .I love you Dad!!
(This is from Joumanas website  http://www.tasteofbeirut.com/)
Knefeh is our national cheesecake; it is eaten in Lebanon for breakfast as well as dessert. Like all pastries, it does not contain eggs; made of  a cheese  similar to mozzarella and a semolina and butter crust. It is sweetened by dousing syrup on it after it comes out from the oven, piping hot. It is served with a sesame  bread, kaak.

Cased Cards


I was given a card similar to the blue one a few years ago ..I tend to keep my cards and found it while cleaning my craft room.. so here is my take on it... 

The red version turned out better than I thought. I ran the whisper white through the Big Shot using the Snowflakes folder . The letters were from the dollar store and I just painted with Craft paint and then took my ever so handy Crystal Effects !!! Love the gloss on it. The pictures are not the greatest but at 12:15 am that was the best I could do!! I will post some other cards tomorrow that I did for the craft fair.
Cheers
T.

Christmas Tags

Well I have been busy getting ready for the craft fair I am doing.. I will only be doing cards and tags .
Do any of you have a stash of cards that you just can't seem to give away? Well today I went through my stash and found so many that I decided to try to sell them.. :)
Last night was tag night ...... and here is what I came up with:

The snowflake tag and snowman tag still need their ribbons .Those will be added tonight.On the backsides of some of the tags have the To and From.. I am thinking of adding 2 of each to each little package .

Haunted House



So yesterday a friend and I went and did a little shopping for a craft fair we are in... We saw a wooden house that would be perfect for a haunted House.. Here is my attempt . Not sure if it needs anything ? Also on the inside there is a ghost but hard to see it.. I also found some branches I had cut from a Azalea I have in my front yard..
