You really can't see it in this picture.

LESSology Challenge #15

Hi Everyone, I am so excited about sharing my creations for this challenge. I had so much fun putting it together. The challenge is called The Bookend Challenge.

I started with a few things I found in my collection of "Interesting Things I Just Have to Have."

There is an old domino box, an old wood and metal stamp, two old metal jelly molds and some pieces of pine.
Then I painted, drilled, glued and this is how it turned out.
Most of the wood is painted black and covered with Graphic 45 paper.
 I made one of the jelly molds into a pin cushion and the other one is to hold teasures.
 I added old buttons, dominos, a broken zipper, bobbins, a lock, a key and even some lace.

The video shows how I created my bookends. There is a hidden box and some tricks to keep your bookends in place.  I hope you will be inspired to create some of your own and join in our challenge here at LESSology. I am so excited about sharing my creations for this challenge. I had so much fun putting it together.

I hope you will be inspired to create some of your own and join in our challenge this month at LESSology.

Merry Monday Card!

Another Christmas card for you today. I followed Merry Monday sketch challenge.

Here is my card.
I stamped the ornament with a SU stamp and used glossy accents and SU Dazzling Diamonds. The picture isn't showing the detail on the stamp but it looks really pretty. I think I made my DP a little too big but I was't paying attention I guess. Then I used a SU stamp for the the sentiment and a Spellbinders Label dye to cut it out. I added a little white pen to add some detail.  The DP is old stuff I am trying to use up.  

If you have any questions about my card please ask.

Merry Monday

Here the sketch for the Merry Monday Challenge.
And here is my card.
I am using all my scraps of Christmas paper so I can not tell you the name of the paper . The slide and toys are a layered cut out. I do know that the sentiment is by Little Yellow Bicycle. This was fun quick card. No stamping but I still love how it turned out. 

Now I am going to work on the video of the third RAK I received this week.


Christmas card

Hi Everyone, Wow it has been a crazy wonderful week. I received three amazing RAKs this week. I will put the third video up later.  I went to a Spiritual Response Therapy session on Wednesday and that was amazing. I highly recommend it to anyone who is open  that short of thing. And I started an art journal thanks to some inspirations from some wonderful ladies on YT.
BUT today I have a Christmas card to share with you. 

The Christmas Card Challenge Week #26 is to use bling. I made this card while we were still at the cabin and I only has a couple of packages of bling with me. One happened to be some tiny stars from Amuse. I added them to the tree and the flowers at the bottom. I used Graphic 45 paper and a piece of velvet ribbon. 
I hope you can see the bling. It is a pretty card in person. 

Ok I am off to make another Christmas card.
