Thinking of 2011

With 2010 almost at a close it is time to look forward to the next year. 
I used the Friday Sketchers Challenge sketch #134 and
am entering it into the challenge,
also going to enter it in the Creative Inspirations Challenge #92

The magnolia image was colored with copics.
She is just sitting there thinking special thoughts for 2011! 
My MS butterfly punch produced the pretty butterflies:
punched out of silver Spellbinders
premium craft foil and embellished with pearls.
The printed paper and gold paper is from
DCWV Mariposa Stack.
The gorgeous flowers are from
Wild Orchid flowers and the ribbon and
silver glitter is from my stash. 

Happy New Year to you and best wishes for 2011.
Thank you for stopping by!


Guys Relaxing

Hello there, I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers Challenge #130
to create this with the guys in mind.
Everybody has to have down time and this is the result ....

This wonderful image is from Sugar Nellie and appropriately named "Fore!"
We are just entering the Christmas season but it makes me want to get out
on the greens and chase that little white ball around. 
It would help to wear off all the extra goodies
we tend to indulge in at this time of year.
Ingredients:  Stampin Up printed paper,
heavy gold paper from my stash,
coloured with my copics,
edged with stampin up scalloped punch,
image is cropped with deckled nestabilities and scissors,
filigree charms and brads from close to my heart.

This is what the inside looks like to write a special sentiment.

Have a great weekend,
 we are going to shop, decorate the house and put up our tree this weekend. 
 My two days off will go by in the blink of an eye and I will be back at 
work before I know it and wishing for one more day off.  (Sigh!)
Best wishes .... Katheleen



Good morning, hope today is finding you well! 
This card is being entered into the Crafty Cats Weekly Challenge and
 the Crafts 4 Eternity Weekly Challenge.  The image used as inspiration is -

 from Crafts 4 Eternity.

And this is my interpretation -

The paper is so pretty I didn't want to cover or embellish to much
and take away from it. 
Recipe is:  DCWV Mariposa cardstock stack,
both the printed and the linen paper. 
Ribbon, buttons and butterfly are all from my stash
 and do not know the brand names, sorry. 
Flowers are prima paper roses and rose buds.
Branches are MS punch.
Sewn on my faithful sewing machine.

The image is from funky kits and is known as little goth girl
and coloured with my copics.  The circle in which she sits
and the scalloped back ground are sizzix dies.

I wanted to keep the inside simple, encouraging heartfelt semtiments.
And this is what it looks like ...

I hope you like my creation and best wishes
to a wonderful upcoming weekend.


Shower Wishes

This was created with a wedding shower in mind. 
I guess the umbrella was the inspiration, representing an afternoon shower.  I used this DCWV paper from the Linen Closet stack giving it sparkle.  You cannot see the sparkle but the paper does have it.   

Here is the inside ....

I used MS stamp for the lace edges and the branches.  Embellised with prima flowers,
pearls and lace.  And tool of choice was my sewing machine.
I am entering this in the Friday Sketchers weekly challenge # 126. 
Thanks for stopping by and best wishes for a great remainder to your week.


Good Morning

Good Morning, thanks for stopping by! 

This card is being entered into Friday Sketchers Sketchers Weekly Challenge
 and Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge. 
The image is a Sugar Nellie stamp, First Dance, from Funky Kits
and coloured with my copics.  Dress is embellished with dazzling
diamonds to add dazzle.  Tiara has mini gems.
Ingredients are 80 lb white, black and purple paper, topped with
DWCV mauve designer paper.  Embellished with prima flowers,
MS branches, lace, pearls, bow and sewn on sewing machine. 
The image doesn't seem to be a pretty as in person,
maybe because I 
placed it on to dark of a surface. 
Thanks for stopping by and visiting.


Sunny Sunday

Happy Sunday everyone, I hope you enjoy this card I am
sharing with you today.  
It has been a gorgeous sunny weekend here and
this is what I have come up with.  

  I used a magnolicious image
and coloured with copics and water colour pencils. 
Embellished with ribbon, lace, prima flowers, rose buds and MS
branches.  Also added rhinestone jewels for added sparkle.
And here is the inside.

I used Basil glass slipper paper in addition to the white. 
I hope you can see the dimension and glitter it adds
to the white paper on both the inside and the cover.
I am entering this in the Crafts 4 Eternity weekly challenge and 
the Creative Inspriations weekly challenge.  
Come and visit anytime ... see you soon.  Best Wishes, Katheleen.

This is created with the DCWV Linen Closet glitter paper.  Everyone has to have
