Rolodex Card A Day 330

Well todays RCAD is a thank you to all of my stuff. I am very thankful that I have what I have. I know it could all be gone tomorrow but for today I am thankful that I have so many things to use. I am very thankful to St. Vinnie's because many of the creative material I use are from there. 
This card has many layers. There is a pocket with a tag. That is were I wrote what I am thankful for.
Here is the process video showing all the things I did to create todays card.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you found something to be thankful for today.

The inspiration for today card came from a little ad I found in a flyer from Bed Bath and Beyond. It is a wall plaque that had things I am thankful for.

Rolodex Card A Day 328

Todays "Thankful Card" was inspired by a word that was used to describe me by one of my You Tube followers.  I am truly thankful that I have "Tenacity." I guess when it comes to my Art Cards that is the best word for me. I am so happy with this past year and this project. A little over a month to go and I am still enjoying every minute. I hope you are as well.

Here is a close up of the fairy.
I sprinkled some Martha Steward beads in the glossy accents. That turned out to be a great effect.
Here is the process video.

Rolodex Card A Day 324

I thought since Thanksgiving is a week away I would do some thankful cards.  Todays I am thankful for an educations. School wasn't easy for me and my dad was most surprised that out of his three children that I was the one who earned masters degree. He was always helpful, supportive and encouraged me to just try and keep trying.  Thank you Dad!
The card started with this great picture from an old book.  The young man is trying to read and has to tune out everything to study. I struggle on many occasions but am so thankful that I was able to earn my degrees and work in a field that I truly loved.
I wrote, " I am thankful for my education and my struggles."  The struggles made me a better teacher and more understanding.  The struggles also made me appreciate my accomplishments.
Here is the process video.

Thanks for stopping and I hope you find many things to be thankful for today!

Rolodex Card A Day 323

Well it is that time of year here in Wisconsin, the snow has started falling.  I love the snow but not the cold. Winter has come a month early. I hope that means it will leave in March. 
RCAD 323 was created with some old designer paper that is vinyl with a sticky back. I used a Diemond Dies  Snow flake set. I love these snow flakes. Diemond Dies just came out with some wonderful words, tags and tree dies. I am so tempted. 
Here is the RCAD 323

Here is the process video.

Raisin Boat Challenge #29

Christmas will be here before you know it. Raisin Boats challenge to you this month is to create something with a Christmas theme. This could be a card, tag, invitation, scrapbook page, or an art journal page -- 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 like your Christmas cards. We have an amazing collection of Christmas theme stamps and four new sets.

Here is what I created.
You know me I had to created something funky. I created the tree using Going in Circles. I also used Corrugated Box on Red delicious cardstock for the layer under the tree. I started with Brighton Beach White and colored that with 3D Stamp Paint lime. Then added dots with glitter liner Ruby
Here is the process video.

 Head on over to the Raisin Boat Challenge and show me what you are creating for Christmas. I look forward to seeing your entries.
