Today's card is made using a stamp and die set I purchased at Michael's with a coupon, score! I purposely used pink and purple since I'm certain that is what intended recipient likes, another great reason for making cards, personalizing them!

I made today's card to play along with the current Lawnscaping Challenge #96 - Merry Christmas! To create the card I used Snow Day Petite Paper Pack for the background and I cut vellum and white glitter paper with the Forest Border Lawn Cuts to fashion snowy mountains. I added white embossing paste to more vellum and cut tags with Tag, You're It Lawn Cuts. Finally, I used stamps from the Snow Day stamp set from Lawn Fawn and added them to the tags.

I had a lightbulb moment thinking how I could create a shaker card using vellum so I used the cute snowman from Chill Out stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps. I think I accomplished what I set out to do. My plan is to enter my card in the BE Inspired Challenge #60 hosted by The Alley Way Stamps!

I suppose that if Santa considers pilfering the plum pudding from the table before the other guests have a taste as naughty, then Christmas Chris from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps, is guilty! Guess who is only getting coal in his stocking this year!

It is with a very heavy heart that I share with you the news of the passing of my youngest son, John Anthony on November 4, 2014. John was only 37 years old and spent most of his adult life fighting the demons of drug addiction that took his life. John had a very loving heart, always willing to give all that he had to those in need. It was not uncommon for him to approach a total stranger and give them a compliment just to see them smile. If you met John, he considered you his friend for life.

When I'm shopping for digital images, given a choice between pretty and funny, I'll go with funny every time! So it should be no surprise that when I spotted Poop Happens while shopping at Mo's Digial Pencil, my funny bone kicked into gear. I can't look at the image without laughing, don't know how I managed to get it colored and turned into a card!

Welcome to Scrapy Land Challenge #4 - Halloween! To create my shaker card I stamped and heat embossed the background papers with an old time favorite background stamp of bats and colored it with distress inks. I used the Die-Versions, Sweet Petites Witch die from Scrapy Land and embossed her black. The moon was cut by using two sizes of circle dies and then I added glitter and sequins for the 'shaker' part of the card. I hope you have time to join the haunting fun with your Halloween card.

The car is loaded and now all there is to do is wait for the family to hop in so that the crew from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps can be off on a late Summer Holiday to take advantage of the low off-season rates! Hmm, should we tell him that the tires are going flat from all the weight of the luggage!

What can I tell you about this card except to say this is what I see each night at bedtime only its three gorgeous golden retrievers staring me down and one silly-nilly cockapoo! To create the card I used the pups from The Gang stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps and the sentiment is a combination of sentiments from different companies! Love these guys!
