Father's Day Cards

Just a quick post to share the Father's Day cards for my DS and DSIL.  They were inspired by the post by Adrienne here and I have to say that these CTMH Jackson papers are so gorgeous that I was spoiled for choice.  Enable me anytime, Adrienne!

Thanks for visiting with me today and please pop back tomorrow for my She's A Sassy Lady blog post.  : ) Christine

Artfully Sent Halloween Card

When I sewed clothes for myself and the DDs, I did not ever think twice about changing the fabric, adding extra embellishments or changing the neckline so WHY do I feel so guilty about messing with the designs from Mary at SVG Cuts, or Ashley at 3DCuts, the Make-It-Now projects or even the layouts and designs from the CTMH carts?  I am, after all, just buying the pattern like I did when I bought a Butterick, or Style or Vogue dress pattern, right? 

This question was nagging at me as I made S's card and gift card holder from the Artfully Sent cart.  I love pop up cards and felt this Halloween scene was a great start but needed a little extra something like stars, a bat and an orange liner behind the windows. 

I used my Technique Tuesday zipper die to make the pocket that conceals the Target gift card.

Here's the front: - 

And a picture of Master J's fabulous dinosaur socks!     He's going to be sorry he ever insisted on being in the blog when I show these posts to his girlfriends in 20 years time!  LOL!

Thanks for visiting with me today.   Time to get ready to Trick or Treat!   : )  Christine

More hexagons...

Do you have a stack of embossing folders that you've never used?  I have, but after creating this anniversary card, my stack is quite a bit shorter!

I really like the quiet gentleness of the CTMH Huntington paper but found I had to soften the corners of the hexagons with TH Distress Tea Dye to compliment the look.

Now I have to make this design again to use the rest of my unused embossing folder stack!

Thank you for visiting with me today.  : ) Christine

The Colors of Fall

This stamp came with my latest batch of CTMH goodies last week.  I love it!  I instantly thought of the Colors of Fall challenge over at CardzTV and here is my card.

Did you know you can run little pieces of metal through the Cuttlebug?  I 'm probably the last crafter in the U.S. to find this out but I love the embossed results.  Gonna try this on a Christmas card as soon as I can get the chaos in my craft room straightened!

Pretty Pennants

I am the Queen of banners having made over a hundred (very simple) name banners for my students' birthdays!  However, I haven't made very many banners for adults so I was really looking forward to embellishing and maybe over-embellishing, a banner for my sister. 

I chose the CTMH paper from my Laughing Lola pack for the base and cut the pennants from the Cricut cart - Pretty Pennants.  You've probably heard this before, but the CTMH paper cuts like the proverbial butter!  It really does!

Unfortunately, when I got the letters of her name pop dotted on the pennants, the matching papers were so pretty, the intended bling-fest came to a screeching halt. Sigh!  So here it is, plain but pretty.  Hope she likes it!   Thanks for visiting with me today!  : ) Christine

Town Car(d)

I found time to play with my new CTMH goodies today!  It has been a loooong time since I made a stamped card and there was a lot of trial and error involved in getting the images kinda, sorta the way I wanted them.  Here it is!   Thanks for visiting today.     : )  Christine

WooHoo!  My first challenge!   I  am entering this card in the
