Just a few cards

Remember you can always check our to see more of my work.

This first card I designed for real estate agents, there is another one similar with 2 houses only but I must not have taken a photo. I made 125 of this card alone for them. 

This card I was trying out my new Tim Holtz holiday stamps. I ended up taking the twine off. 

I got these two off of pinterest and had fun making them. Although they both took a while. Used some water colour paper on both. Since I don't have a sewing machine, I handstiched on the 2nd one.

I decided to try my hand at doing an altered clock. This is my first one and will be available for purchase at the Country Christmas Store
I obviously haven't put the hands back on here. I wanted to use the photo without the cover on because it had less glare.

Make the movies jealous

I did a mixed media canvas the other day. I basically scraplifted it from Melita. I just loved the quote and the Tim Holtz film strip ribbon. The dictonary parts that you see have the words life, movie and jealous. 
The quote is Live a life that makes the movies jealous. 

I also had to restock my ornaments...sold out last year! Here are the snowman ones. I think I am going to define the carrot nose a bit more. 

Thanks for looking.

Just some recent stuff

I had posted these on my other blog maybecreative but thought I would share a couple here. 

These snowman were from another scrapper (can't remember who right now but it is on my other blog).

These was using an image from Simply B for the facebook fan challenge. I didn't have the Dyan Reavely stamp for the weeds so I just hand drew them my self. 

Again from another scrapper who I linked to on my other blog.

This is my most recent art journal page (the picture isn't very good I'm sorry). It is with a technique we all did as a kid that Dyan Reavely gave a new twist to.
The quote is "my mom is a neverending song in my heart of comfort, happiness and being. I may sometimes forget the words but I always remember the tune." Graycie harmon

Mixed media

I just realized that I hadn't posted these photos...I had to wait on two of them because they were a wedding gift for my cousin. 
Here is my take on this pin.

A mixed media key ring holder..I think it ended up going as a gift for Dakota's teacher.

Here is my take on this pin.

Christmas wishes very early

I know, I making a Christmas card so early in the year. I didn't have a choice. I have my product in at The Country Christmas Store again this year but also have craft shows that I am attending. So I need lots of product. I have a bunch of ornaments to make (I sold out last year) and anything else I can think of. 
Maybe some more mixed media art. 

I am happy with the way this one turned out, I admit though, that the idea came from someone else. 
Here is a link to the pin I saved.

I hope you like it.

Mixed media canvas

This is my first canvas. It was fun to make. I am adding hooks at the bottom for hanging key chains on. 

I will be at the Grantham Lioness craft show all weekend so come by and see me.

Volunteer Time

The local humane society was looking for volunteers to take photos so I decided to go for it. I am now on a weekly rotation with another photographer to take photos on Monday afternoons to highlight some of the pets available for adoption on the local cable channel. Yesterday was my first day and here are a few that I was able to capture in pictures.



I am on the schedule for 2 more weeks so I will share their photos with you. Hopefully I will get to take photos of some of the dogs next time. I have to arrange it with the head of the dogwalkers who happens to be my neighbour.

Thank you card

I am doing the finally friday challenges over at Scraptures this month so head over and check them out. 

At the beginning of the week I was sort of feeling crafty but because we had something going on every night except for Thursday I couldn't do a Finally Friday until now (and no longer in a creating mood). 
I had pinned this card a while ago and wanted to do something similiar. I do have a tree stamp but also wanted to use something that at least came with one of the Scraptures kits. 
This Bo Bunny chandelier stamp came with a card kit a couple of months ago (at least in 2012). The mists are dylusions but you can use any sprays that you have. 
I challenge you to create a background for your card or layout using your mists.

Snowman card

I had the urge to be creative today so I decided to make a card using a sketch from Mojo Mondays. 
This one will be available to purchase immediately.
