You're the Tick to my Tock

I am in LOVE with this latest release by The Greetery. Doesn't everyone need a clock in their stash? :) I made this flap card for a challenge over at Splitcoast. You can see the tutorial here only I did not have a magnet to attach so I just glued down the red flap onto the red gingham paper. I'm already trying to think of other ideas for this clock.

Color Hues - Pink and Red
Allsorts - Spots and/or Stripes
Use Your Stuff - Inspired by a Book (The Girl with a Clock for a Heart - by Peter Swanson, it was pretty good!)

Blue and brown tulips

I've never seen blue and brown tulips in real life, but I made this card for this challenge. I added some torn blue and brown paper to the edges. I kept it generic so I can add a sentiment when I need to send it :).  Stencil by Unity Stamp Company

Happy Valentine's Day

Now that Christmas is past, it's time to move onto Valentine's Day!! These are brand new stamps out by Papertrey Ink. I have no hot air balloon stamps so I had to get them. They are based in Cincinnati, Ohio so I got them in 3 days which I was very happy about!! I made this card for a sketch at Splitcoast this week.

Happy for You Baby Card

So I kept track of how many challenges I participated in last year and I was in 309 total challenges. If it wasn't for these challenges, I know for a fact I would not be making that many cards. I hope to continue to do them as it does make me think outside the box sometimes. This card is for a dear friend who is expecting her first grand-daughter next month. She lives in WI, I live in NC. Sure wish I lived closer!!

Happy New Year 2023

One more New Year card, just in different colors. I did not make it to midnight last night. We had our grand-dog Tino for the night so he and I did selfies and I finally got one good one to post. He was NOT amused!
