It is really hard to see in this photo but mixed in the variations of the different shades of turquoise there is one that has a very green highlight to it. I matted this pretty strip of paper with some gold then did the same for the sentiment and popped it up with foam tape. I finished with some sequins and crystals.

Kindness and fun

Good Day crafty peeps, I have a cute little note card to share today. I had a grand adventure yesterday, there is a group of gals that headed over to the mainland to visit a few craft stores. Now when I say group, what I actually mean is a bus of 22 :) and it was a hoot.

The ladies who organized did a fabulous job, the Wilson's bus driver Larry was a character and a half and had us in stitched more than a few times. The stores were outstanding in their hospitality.

As a very small gesture I made up some notecards for the organizers.


The card is small, 2.5 by 3.5, I cut the panel of DP with a stitched die cut and added a border in blue. I stamped the sentiment, added the matt and popped it up with foam tape. I finished with sequins and clear dots.

Supplies: White and blue cardstock, Designer Paper - Echo Park, Simon Says Stamps - Uplifting Thoughts and Stitched Rectangles.

Thank you ladies for such a wonderful day. Thank you to Clipper Street, Precious Memories and Country Lane for taking us on :).

Good Morning we have a new challenge this morning over at the Merry Monday Christmas card Challenge blog. Sue is our Hostess this week and her challenge is to Create a Christmas card with a non-black silhouette.
 

I have so many wonderful die cuts I picked up this past Christmas, they make a card so easy some times. I added a simple sentiment to the panel and I finished with some twine and a very cool button I found in my stash.. not at all what I was looking at but turned out perfectly. I used my stitched squares to added a little extra details around the edges.

The Hunt

Got Moxxie, what a great name for designer paper. I used my stitched dies cut to get a corner of a 12 x 12 page and used a strip from the reverse side for along the bottom. I die cut and popped up a buck head that is embossed with some texture. The sentiment is heat embossed and popped up.

I finished with some sequins.
