My first Tri-Fold Card

I made my first Tri-Fold card at my retreat at the beginning of November, and it was surprisingly easy!!! It is a bit tricky getting stamps & embellishments for all the little boxes, so I let the Designer paper do a lot of the work for me!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!! Have a great week!!

Don't forget to join us in our SIMON SAYS STAMP challenge this week (Winter love) , our INCY WINCY DESIGNS challenge (Anything goes) and our CORROSIVE CHALLENGE this week (Let's go to the movies!)

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends!!! Enjoy the turkey, family & friends today!!!!! Gobble Gobble!!!!

Simon Says.....Winter Wedding/Love

This weeks challenge at Simon Says Stamp, is Winter Wedding or Winter love....I panicked when I realized I had NO wedding stamps that YOU could purchase at Simon Says Stamp, then I went through ALL of my stamps (that took about 4 hours) until I found the PERFECT stamp. This is Rambling Ted & Rambling Rose "LOVIN' HUGS" from Penny Black. AND Simon has them in stock!!!! It originally had them standing on grass, which I covered with Polar White Flower Soft, and had butterflies all around them, which I covered up with snowflake buttons that I had - they worked PERFECTLY!!!

Remember, you can win a $25 shopping spree at Simon Says Stamp just by entering! So head to the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has made for your viewing pleasure!! AND, if you enter this week over there, come back on Friday & enter MY Friday Freebie contest!!!!! AND stay tuned for some GREAT GIVE AWAYS in December!!!!!
Have a great week!!!

Inchie cards

I made a couple of INCHIE cards - they are a great way to use those smaller Christmas stamps that sometimes get lost on a larger card. This first one uses images from Hero Arts (snowman, cat, owl), SU Inks & More (reindeer) and Stampin Up (sentiment). This card is 4x4.

This card uses Holiday Birds from Hero Arts & is 5x5

Thanks for looking today & leaving me comments!! I totally appreciate them more than you will ever know!!!!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

Corrosive Challenge..... Let's go to the movies!!!

This weeks challenge at the Corrosive Challenge Blog is LET'S GO TO THE MOVIES! So, you have to base your card or project on a movie theme! This one was easy & hard at the same time!!! I have so many movies that I like, but it was hard to pick just ONE!! LOL
I love this image from Whiff of Joy and when I coloured her, it reminded me of the beautiful red dresses & capes the ladies wore in "White Christmas". Since Christmas is coming up, I decided to base my card on that movie, which is one of my Mom's favourite movies! We used to sit & watch it EVERY year!!!!!

Head on over to the blog to check out the other Design Team members movie inspirations!!! Don't forget, there are prizes to be won each week!!!!
