Snow, Snow and more Snow...

It has been snowing all day here and it is only October.  I can't tell you how weird it feels to be getting snow this early.

Well in the spirit of the day, I created this winter scene card.

The kids have spent the day out in the snow and I am staying inside nursing my cold.  Boy, is that a winter day for you or what?!

I don't know if you can see it in the photo but I used white applique puffy paint on the hats, ear muffs and buttons.  It was also used to make snow falling in the background.  

Take care!

This card was made for the My Creative Time DT call.

This stamp and sentiment set are from There She Goes Clear Stamps
Snowflake border by Martha Stewart Punches
Bumpy Road border by EK Success

Ok I wanted to show you a card I made using flower soft. Now, I am experimenting here so tell me what you think.

I added flower soft to the shade of the lamp and it gives it so much dimension don't think. I love the saying that goes with this image but think the tag might be to big for the card.

but again I am experimenting... I might trying using the same image with flower soft added but try a different shape card. It is so much fun to just try things out and see how they turn out. There are no mistakes just the fun of creating new things.

The image and sentiment on this card are from Unity.  The image is called "Shine on!"

The flower soft color used is called "Heather".

The tag is colored on the edges with Jim Holtz Distress Ink "pine needles".

The card is made with quickutz scalloped card die.

The circles are made with lifestyle craft circle dies.

The tag was made with EK Success punch.

Purple ribbon on the tag.

Purple rhinestones.

Inkessentials white gel pen.

Keep experimenting!!

Broken sewing machine...

My sewing machine broke the other day and boy do I miss it.  I have sew many  (get it LOL)  projects in my head that I want to make but can't without my trusty sewing machine.

Sigh...  it is Halloween time and I need the darn thing.  My eyeballs lit up when I saw the newest machines at the store and what they can do.  Technology has certainly advanced since I got my machine nearly twenty years ago.  

well my husband has given me the big no on a new machine so just waiting and waiting for my old one to be repaired.  

Whimsie Doodles has some new Halloween paper/fabric piecing digital patterns for sale and that will be my first project when I get my hands on my hopefully fixed machine back from the repair store.

Check them out here...
