Raisin Boat Challenge #31

Hello I am back! We had a wonderful time.
Gary and I at the Mayan Ruins in Tulum, Mexico.

The view from our room at Ana Y Jose.

Now it is time for Challenge #31 over at Raisin Boat.
The challenge this month is "Celebrate."
I made a fun box card.

To create this card I used Raisin Boat sets; Opportunity Knocks, Urban BotanicalsStrokes of Wisdom, and Lollipop.  She added some Frayed Flower Pink and White. Then last but not least my favorite creative ingredients 3D Paint.

Here is a video to show how I created this fun card.

I hope you share your Celebrate Creations with the folks over at Raisin Boat!

Raisin Boat Challenge #30

It is time for Raising Boat Challenge #30. The Challenge to you this month is to help you express your love.  This could be a card, a journal page, a scrapbook page, a Valentine -- anything!  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! You can enter as often as you like.

Remember, you can either buy OR rent Raisin Boat sets -- no guilt in using a set for just one project, such as this challenge . We have an amazing collection of Valentines Day theme stamps and many that can be used to express love.

I created a Valentine for my hubby. 
I could not get Photo Shop to put the outside first. I have so much to learn.  I used Raisin Boat sets  Love Letters,  Sealed with a Kiss,  Playing Cupid and my favorite  red, Raisin Boat card stock Roasted Red Pepper and Brighton Beach White.

Here is the process video.

Now, please head over to the Raisin Boat Blog and share a, "Love is in the Air" creation.

I look forward to seeing what your create and good luck!

Art on the Road

We had a wonderful time on our trip and made sure I took the time to art journal every day.
Here are the videos of what I created. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

This post is a video of all the Rolodex Cards I have made during 2014. " Me, myself, and I,"  all on my own. A lot of people do ICADS.  I really took it to heart to do a card each day or share a card each day for a year, hoping for lessons learned. I did learn a lot, and it was a blast to do art or share art every day, 365!  But, it was hard and stressful at times when I wasn't going to be at home. One thing I learned was that if I had to work ahead and do more than one card on a day, each card got better. Another thing I learned was if I had been inspiration by someone, or  something, the card was better. 
I did surprise myself in accomplishing this goal. What is for next year you ask? I am not sure. I kinda let the Spirit lead me. We will see when It happens.

Here is the video.

Thanks for following me on this journey. Your comment, support and views have been a big help in my learning and growing.
Thank you!

Rolodex Card A Day 365

I can't believe I made it. There were many challenges along the way. Trips, Moving my MIL twice and her passing away, new babies, cat illnesses, visits to the cabin but I still continued. 
Here is RCAD 365

Here is the process video for this card.

I really am very proud of myself. I set a goal and went after it. I did learn a lot and feel I have grown in my art. I do plan to continue doing art every day. I may not share it every day but I will share. I have a video that is a slide show of all the cards coming soon. Your feed back is what really helps me to grow. Thank you so much.
May you have a wonderful and safe New Years!
Big Hugs to you all!
Thanks for stopping,

Rolodex Card A Day 364

Day two of our trip. We are headed to Colorado today. It snowed most of the way to Lincoln NE. It was a light snow but it did start getting slippery just as we got to Lincoln. Good thing that was our first stop. It is very cold. 23 degrees was the high today. That is not with the wind chill and the wind is really blowing.

Here is the RCAD 364 that I prepared ahead of time.
Here is the process video.

I hope you enjoy this card, and that you are staying warm and cozy.
Thanks for stopping, Hugs,

Rolodex Card A Day 360

Todays Rolodex card was created for a piece of a gift box. I love the birch trees.

We search for sacred spaces, spiritual experiences, and truths. But the holiest places are often found when we spend time with people we love.
