Rolodex Card A Day 296

The inspiration for RCAD 296 came from a napkin I found at a thrift store in Montana.
The lady brought back memories of a show I loved when I was very little called My Miss Brooks.  Plus I am always miss placing things.
Here is the process video. 

I hope you enjoy this funny little card. I really am having fun creating with things I find.  Thank you for visiting my blog!

Rolodex Card A Day 295

The inspiration for RCAD 295 came from a song by Bing Crosby called A Pocketful of Dreams. I was in the car listening to Pandora. When this song came on I knew it had to be one of my RCAD.
Here are the lyrics to the song.

I've got a pocketful of dreams 
I'm no millionaire 
But I'm not the type to care 
Cause I've got a pocketful of dreams. 

It's my universe 
Even with an empty purse 
Cause I've got a pocketful of dreams. 

I wouldn't take the wealth of Wall Street 
For a road where nature trods 
And I calculate that I'm worth my weight 
In goldenrods.

Lucky, lucky me 
I can live in luxury 
Cause I've got a pocketful of dreams.

Here is the process video.

I hope all of the dreams in you pocket come true!

I saw a greeting card like this somewhere on line but I didn't write down the name and I am so sorry if it was your idea.  I do love the quote, Focus on what really matters," and I had the glasses the camera and frame. I was excited to have a way to use them.

Here is the process video!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your day is filled with focus on kindness to your self and others.

Rolodex Card A Day 293

Well this card was an inspiration I got when I woke up and realized it was time to clean up.  I don't know about you but I am very messy when I am crafting and just living.  I get everything put away and cleaned up and with in an hour it is right back to the way it was. So I think I need a sign that say. Excuse the mess that is how I create best! LOL Well I have one now. This card may be framed and hung on my front door. 
Here is a quick process video for you.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Monday!

Rolodex Card A Day 292

Rolodex Card A Day 292 was inspired by Monica who is bcdoula  on You Tube.  Thank you Monica for reminding me to put my records on. Music dose touch my soul. 
It is so easy to forget what makes our soul feel free and happy. Music is one of those things that do that for me.
Here is the process video for RCAD 292.

Rolodex Card A Day 291

Rolodex Card A Day 291 was created with the same background technique that I used on the Raisin Boat Challenge card the other day. 
The quote says, "No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in on autumnal face." ~John Donne~ 
I had fun with a face and a leaf stamp on this card. I added glossy accents to his eyes and mustache to make them pop.  
Here is the process video.

I hope you are having a beautiful Autumn. I feel like we are having a second one because the leaves are turning were we live now. It has been just about 3 weeks since the turned up at the cabin. This is really a beautiful time of year.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a wonderful creative weekend.

Rolodex Card A Day 289

Rolodex Card A Day 289 was about having fun sewing and playing with my sewing machine. When I first started to do paper art I said I would never sew on my cards or paper and then I remembered, that is how I learned to use a sewing machine. We were give paper with lines to sew on to learn how to use the machine. It was fun to think back to 7th grade when I was learning to sew. I am so thankful for those classes and I feel sorry for the young people today who are not given the opportunity to learn how to use and create with a sewing machine.
Sewing really dose soothe the soul!
Here is the process video.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you got some creative ideas from my blog and video.

Raisin Boat Challenge #28 Thankful

Hello There! Well it is time for a another Raisin Boat Challenge and they have a new stamp set out that is perfect to use for this challenge.  The set is called Happy Thanksgiving.

The challenge this month is "Thankful" I didn't get to use this set on my card because I needed to do it before this was released. I used ThankfulArboretum Leaves, and Growing Love and a fun background technique that I learned at Splitcoastampers called Alcohol Marker Marbling.

Here are two cards I made.

Here is the video.

Challenge #28 Is titled, "Thankful"... Now is a great time to reflect on all that you are thankful for.  You can create a journal page, a scrapbook page, or cards to have on hand to show your appreciation for a kind act or gift, or place cards for your Thanksgiving dinner.

You may just win a FREE stamp set of your choice! You can enter as often as you like. Use any set you have (you don't have to limit your entry to Raisin Boat stamps), but if you use a Raisin Boat stamp set, it will count as two entries. That gives you twice the chance to win a FREE stamp set of your choice!

Remember you can rent or buy sets from Raisin Boat. No guilt in using a set for just one project, such as a challenge. We look forward to seeing your creations!

Here are the upcoming challenges for 2014 to help you get the perfect sets into your rental Pick List:

October: Thankful
November: Christmas

This current Thankful challenge will close on the 12th of November. I hope you will share what you create.

Thanks for stopping and happy crafting!
