I'm Back

Hi everyone, I'm back. My craft season is over and I can get back to making cards. I do have to say I had the best craft season ever. No rain and lots and lots of repeat customers. There are some happy pets out there. My last show ended on Sunday and Monday I made 3 cards to show you. I did run into a little problem. I can't find my camera. So I'm using an old one my dad gave me. Oh do I need my Easy Share. So lets get to the cards I've made.
This first one is for a new blog Challenge called Tis' the season. It is a new Christmas challenge. This first challenge is a sketch.


 Here's what i came up with


Except for the pink snow flake all my supplies are from stampin' Up. My colors are Soft Suede, Certainly Celery, Pink Pirouette, and Whisper White. The stamp sets are Polar Party and Serene Snowflakes. the ribbon is Certainly Celery. I colored the bear in with matching markers. I think it came out really cute.

Now my second card is for The Friday Mashup . This week Tara is mixing up fussy cut along with ripped paper.


Here's what I did.




Once again all my supplies except for the googly eyes are from Stampin' Up. The stamp sets are Teeny tiny wishes and I'm not sure on the name of the set the spider came from, but the words that come with it say Happy Boo To You. It's a pretty old set. The paper pack I used is called Howltooth & Scaringbone.

And Last is one I did for Sunday Stamps. Marie's got a great sketch.



I had to go Christmas on this one because as soon as I saw it I saw tree ornaments. Here's what I came up with.


And again all my supplies are from Stampin' Up except the sentiment. The stamp set and matching framlits are the Ornament Keepsake. They are stamped in Real Red. The paper packets is Candlelight Christmas.

I hope you like my cards. It feels great to be back with my stamps. Oh and did I mention I stayed in my PJ's all day too. What a great day!!!!
So I'll see ya soon. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING
