The Baby's Ride for TGIFC125

 
 
Hello All!
Thanks for Peeking in again Today!
 
 
This Card is for a Theme Challenge!
 
 
TGIF Challenge #125
 
 
 
Here is the Challenge!
 
 
 
 
 
I thought this was a great Challenge!
But all the ideas that ran through my head
were already used...get out of my head!
 
I then got a thought...yes it happens!
I needed 'baby' cards in my stash...then I
thought of the Carriage being a Baby's Ride!
 
 
Here is my Card!
 

 
I stamped one pink heart and one blue heart...usually
the gender isn't known till later...I kept this as an
either/or gender neutral!
The pink and blue also lend color to
this monochromatic Card!
 
 
 
Here is the inside of my Card!
 
 

 
I couldn't resist doing the 'rubber ducky'
it also adds color to the inside of the card!
 
 
 
 
 
Here is my Card with it's stamped to match envelope!
 
 
 
I used the hearts on the front of the envelope
Still gender neutral!
 
 
Here is the list of items used to make my Card:
Unless noted, all items are from Stampin'Up!
 
Cardstock:
Tip Top Taupe-retired, card base
Whisper White-used to stamp on and then cut out, inside panel

Autumn Leaves for the Bandit!

 
 
 
Hello Everyone!
A BIG Hello to the new Peepers too!
Welcome to my Blog!
This is where I share all of my Cards with
all of you, Family and Friends!
 
 
Today's Card is for the Challenge from
my Upline, Mary Fish...aka...the Bandit!
 
 
 
Here is the Challenge for Sept 14-20
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is my Card!
 
 
 
 
Fall is my Favorite Season!
I love the Colors of Fall!
I love the smell of Fall and all the good foods
of Fall...hayrides, pumpkin patches, corn mazes,
canning Summer's fruits and veggies, sitting outside again,
and not being HOT, just comfortable!
After quick dinners on the grill...it's nice
to fire up the oven or Crockpot
for all the long cooking meals!
It's still warm here in NC, but a girl can dream!
I did use the oven today and I thought
the heat would kill me!
Ha! So back to just the Crockpot and grill!
 
 
 
 
Here is the inside of my Card!
 
 
 
I carried the DSP to the inside for the Colors!
 
 
 
 
Here is my Card with it's stamped to match envelope!
 
 
 
 
 
I didn't put a greeting on the front...the inside sentiment is
 all I wanted to stamp on my Card today.
I am going to use the card as an encouragement card.
 
I ran over to the box store (M's) to see what they had for Fall
decorations and spotted this cute Truck on a shelf!
 I had a coupon for 30% off...mine!I also picked up a few other items for the house too!
  Post Script...


Have you ever had one of those days?
I did today!
I THOUGHT my hair appt. was today at 9am...it is
TOMORROW at 9am!
While I was waiting another Woman
came in (our hairdresser was late to open) and
we introduces ourselves and starting chatting...her
husband is fighting Cancer...they just moved here 7
years ago...we chatted and then the hairdresser showed up...I
really believe we meet people for reasons...this card is going
her and her husband for encouragement while they fight this
disease together...yup, she is there helping him all the way.
I hope they both feel encouraged.
This is why I do what I do!
It is a ministry to encourage Family, Friends, and
perhaps, new Friends.
I am going to make the Card Blank and write
something personal to them.
 
 
 
Here is the list of items used to make my Card:
Unless noted, all items are from Stampin'Up!
Cardstock:
Cajun Craze-card base, mat, open leaf

Here is my Card again!
Do you like the Fall?
Many people tell me they hate the Fall because of what comes after
the Fall...Folks, enjoy the Season for what it is, after all it
does have Halloween and then Thanksgiving! All the
 fun things, events, and times that comes with Fall!
 
 
Here is Today's 'C' note!
 
Yes I do!
 
Until the next Post...Blessings and Fall Colors and Fun to you ALL!

The Magical Dragonfly Dreams for CTD460

 
 
 
Hello ALL!
 
Welcome Back for another
peek at another Card for Today!
 
This Card is for a Color Challenge!
 
 
It is for Color Throwdown #460
 
 
 
Here is the Challenge!
 
 
This is one of my all time FAVORITE
Color Combinations!
 
 
 
 
Here is my Card!
 
 
 
 
Dragonflies are one of those creatures that
appear magical to me! They fly around me
when I am outside...and when I hold up
my finger, they land on the tip and just sit there!
At least till I move it closer to me...then they fly away!
I always thought, as a little girl that they were
transport for Fairies! Who knows, as we get older
those cute dreams go away...sometimes!!
 
 
 
Here is the inside of my Card!
 
 

 
I still think they are magical...but then again, I
am like the Toys R Us kid...I don't want to grow up!
Do you?
Now that I am an adult...I want to be a kid again!
Dreams are one way we can do that!
 
 

Here is my Card with it's stamped to match envelope!
 
 
 
Let's not forget our childhood dreams and thoughts...we
may be older, but we also need to teach how to dream to
the younger generations! Those dreams are what have
brought this world thus far already!
 
 
Here is the list of items used to make my Card:
Unless noted, all items are from Stampin'Up!
 
Cardstock:
Whisper White Thick-card base
Night of Navy-dragonflies
Garden Green-swirls
 
Stamp Sets:
Sincere Salutations-retired, greeting
Dragonfly Dreams-inside sentiment
Swan Lake-little dragonflies inside and on envelope
 
Classic Stampin' Ink Pads:
Night of Navy-greeting, inside sentiment, one of little dragonflies
inside and on envelope
Garden Green-one of the little dragonflies inside and on envelope
 
Tools:
Big Shot-die cutting machine
Swirly Scribbles Thinlits-green swirls
Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits-dragonflies on front
 
Accessories:
Jewels Basic Rhinestones-one on each dragonfly body
 
Ranger Stickles Glitter Glue-inside and on envelope

Birthday Wishes for FMS305

 
 
Hello All!
 
Welcome Back!
Thank you for peeking in Today!
 
Today's Card is for a Sketch Challenge!
 
 

 
Here are that Challenge!
 
 

  
Freshly Made Sketches #305
 

 
I don't have square envelopes and I am not good at
making them, so I opted to stay with the A2 size!
 
  
 
Here is my Card!
 
 

 
I threw out 2 other Cards I started with this stamping!
The first was too many daisies...the second...I smeared
by mistake! These things happen!
 
  
 
Here is the inside of my Card!
 
 

 
I brought the leaves inside for the same
color combination to reflect the front of the Card!
 
  
 
 
Here is my Card with it's stamped to match envelope!
 
 
 
 
 
I kept the daisies and leaves free falling, even to
the envelope! This will also make a great Masculine
Birthday Card...it has flowers, but it isn't real
feminine, so it is going into my Masculine Birthday Stash!
 
 
 
 
Here is the list of items used to make my Card:
Unless noted, all items are from Stampin'Up!
  
Cardstock:
Whisper White Thick-card base
Night of Navy-mat on front
Old Olive-mat on front
 
DSP:

Stamp Sets:
Daisy Delight-daisies and leaves
Special Celebrations-inside sentiment
Icing On The Cake-greeting
 
Classic Stampin' Ink Pad:

Here is my Card again!
 
 
 
I do like the simplicity of this Card!
 The Clean and Crisp look,
it  is what I am doing these days!
Almost like when I first started stamping!
 

I am taking a better look at what I need

and what I will really use
This Daisy Bundle is one that I really use!
 

Until the next Post...Blessings and Daisy Love to you ALL!
