Art Impressions Challenge #38 For A Young Boy

I have really missed playing with my Art Impressions stamps the last few weeks!  I had to think long and hard on this one.  Swing by the Art Impressions blog to check out all the details!

The Art Impression stamps I used on this card are:

P-1499 fence
U-1695  boy front
Q-1704 dog front
C-1048 raccoon
E-1025 clouds

I did my coloring with Copic Markers.  The card base is Pure White with a layer of designer paper which is unknown.  I used Pop Dots for dimension, and Diamond Stickles to make my snow sparkle.  The sentiment is an unmounted and unknown.

I consider us very lucky from the weekend storm, however our neighbors to the north were not so lucky.  Many are without power, and will be for days yet.  They just said on the news, that there is more damage now then with Hurricane Irene, and I believe it.  Sending up prayers for safety and warmth.

October Rose's Challenge ......Fall Theme

This month, the Rose's Challenge is hosted by Patti Sue Rose.  She chose for us to do a Fall card.  I was having such a blast, that I ended up doing three cards using the same set.  All are different, but quite Autumn-esque!

Card #1

Card #2

Card #3

All 3 cards use Pure Luxury card stock from Gina K. Designs, as well as paper from Memory Box Blackbird Collection.  There is an assortment of lace, buttons, Dew Drops, cording and die cuts.  All are colored with Copic Markers, and sponged with VersaMagic inks. Card #3 uses a triple circle stamp from Just For Fun stamps.

I also wanted to share the set of stamps that were my inspiration.  They are from Clear Dollar Stamps, and the set is called Pumpkin Patch.  The stamps are so adorable!   It is possible that it is retired, as I could not find it.

Thanks for taking a peek, and please stop by and see what the other Rose's have created for you this month.  I will be hosting for the month of November, so I will be thinking up a good one!

Quick Share

Hey, everyone!  It is snowing here in PA!  It was not suppose to start until late afternoon, but it started coming down at 8:40 a.m..  It is heavy, wet snow, which they are saying may lead to power outages since the leaves are still on the trees.  I think I am going to do a bit of baking to warm up the house.

 I wanted to share a funny Halloween card I made for the newlyweds.  I used papers from the Memory Box, Blackbird collection, and a fun die cut from K&Co.  When Frankie and his bride fell out of the package, I just knew I had to use them.  My sentiment is computer generated. 

Well, it sure does not feel like Halloween is 2 days away!  Feels more like New Years!  Have a crafty Saturday, and I will see you soon.

Just Peachy

Good Morning!  I wanted to share a card I created just for fun.  I used a digi image from Create with TLC.  Don't you just love peaches when they are in season?  My latest addiction is Peach Mango Salsa....yum!

I started with a sheet of Just Peachy card stock from Gina K. Designs, (a real cowinkydink) layered on a sheet of K&Co dp, then layered on a 5" square paper doily.  I cut my image with a Spellbinders Classic Circle die and layered it on a Blossoms Three cut out of the designer paper.  I ran a strip of card through the Cuttlebug with the plaid EF and sent peach velvet ribbon across the bottom for more texture.  Punched leaves, Prima's, and Dew Drops make up my corner cluster. A little bit of Diamond Stickles was added for sparkle.

After coloring my image with Copics, I added my sentiment, which is from Unity.  It still needed something, so I glazed my peaches and applied Fun Flock to make them fuzzy!  Love how that worked out!

My inside sentiment is also from Create with TLC.  Phew, that was quite an assortment of supplies, but I am on a quest to use things!  Have a great Friday!  We have the bad old "S" word in our forecast for the weekend. It is not the norm for it to do that before Halloween. There may be more stamping in my future.

Yes, it's me!

Not exactly sure why, but I am having a hard time getting back into the swing of things.  I keep telling myself that tomorrow will be a productive day, but it does not happen.  I do try to visit you all when I can.

I created a few cute things for Dee's shower that I was saving to share with you all, but the computer has plum eaten the photos.  One was a fancy tag that had the "Something old, Something new" saying. and the other was a shower card which used Webster Pages.  Oh well, I'll keep looking.

Today I would like to share the wedding card I made for the happy couple.  I used Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies.  I tried to use more Fall colors to match the harvest theme.  After finding a long, sappy poem for the inside, it was complete.  I was sure to ask Olga for her approval, as she is a champ with Heartfelt Creations stamps.

Well now, that was short and sweet!  Hope all is well in your little part of the world.  I want to remind everyone the the Roses will be posting their monthly challenge this Sunday, and I am sure they will be amazing!

The Happy Couple

I did not want to bore you with too many photos, so I was waiting until I got a few prime shots from guests who attended.  Thanks so much for your loving wishes for the bride and groom, and your support over the last months.  It will be a few weeks until the professional shots are available.

Denise and Shaun will be leaving on their honeymoon, shortly, and I hope they have a fabulous time full of life long memories.

Poor daddy was a wreck worrying about speeches and dances, but he did an excellent job of turning over his baby girl to the man of her dreams.

Everyone had an amazing time, and I have never seen Denise and Shaun happier!  Thanks for stopping by.

It's Wedding Day!

After much planning, the day has arrived for my DD to take her new name.  I plan on enjoying this day to the fullest!  Everything is ready and the day is cool and crisp.  The leaves are at their peak and although we expect wind today, they promised to stay on the trees until the ceremony!  The Daley and Kelemen families will be forever joined.  What a blessing!

I wanted to share this photo with you, so you could see the affection in their eyes.  This is the look of 10 years of love and friendship.

Thank you all for your well wishes, and for listening to us rave on about the prep!  I hope to be back to crafting next week.
