By the Sea-embossing challenge

I made this ATC for a black and white themed swap and for Gingersnap Creations Embossing Challenge.  I really love how it turned out.  The collage image is from Collage Stuff, the word stamps are I Brake for Stamps and I think the shell is Inkadinkado.  I also used some rub ons and outline stickers for the corners.

Case a CAS challenge

What's a CAS, you ask?  Well, according to Gingersnap Creations, it's a clean and simple card.  This challenge came along just in time for me to make this monochromatic card for my sister-in-law using a Stampsmith stamp.  She likes old movies.

Gingersnap Creations Challenge-Time

In the spirit of a new year, the theme challenge at Gingersnap Creations this month is time.  This is also my card for the RSC January sketch challenge.  Image stamps are from I Brake for Stamps and the saying is Sunday International.  I thought the sketch rather challenging, but like the results.

Gingersnap Creations Challenge-Purple, Gold and Green

I made this card for Gingersnap Creations color challenge and a swap.  I used a lovely silhouette image from Hearts in Touch stamps, the sponsor for this challenge.  The background is watercolor mists sprayed over a plastic fern.

New Year's Resolutions

Well, it's snowing here again and the kids are off school.  My husband decided to take the day off work as well.  The whole country is under arctic cold blast.
I don't always like to make New Year's Resolutions since they are so hard to keep, but I have made a few this year.  This ATC illustrates one of them and is my entry into

 Gingersnap Creations Resolutions Challenge and the Artchix biweekly lottery.
