Love You Lots – CTD475

Well it’s been a little while since I’ve done a post. I might be a little out of practice… But I had a snow day afternoon on Friday, my order from MFT was on my doorstep, and it seemed like the perfect time to get crafty. So I started with one of my favorite challenges, the Color Throwdown.

(P.S. I also switched over to a new domain, and I got my old posts switched over, but I have some work to do on the image links.)

Stamps: From the Heart (MFT)
Paper: Smooth White, Silver Glitter (MFT)
Ink: Cotton Candy, Blu Raspberry, Blueberry (MFT)

Thank You – CTD440

Oh, it’s been too long since I’ve been able to get crafty! (Craft Room Status: Still Not Finished…) But this weekend I was fortunate to spend the weekend with a group of my best crafty friends. That is so good for my soul. And after a rough week, I was reminded of how lucky I am to have all the wonderful people in my life that I do.

Aaaanyway, enough of the sappy stuff… 😉

Look, I made a card! I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown this week.

I Heard You Were Dragon – CTD434

You guys! It’s been over a month, but I finally got crafty again!!! Thanks goodness for good friends and regularly scheduled Crafty Saturdays! I can’t remember when I went this long without crafting. I moved at the beginning of January. And I had to clear out my storage unit. So my life for the last 2-1/2 months has consisted of moving boxes. So. Many. Boxes. Right now, I have a temporary craft room set up in my living room. My craft room is currently filled with boxes I need to sort through after emptying my storage unit. Anyway, Crafty Saturday gave me an excuse to take a break from boxes, pack up my crafty things, and spend the day crafting with friends. I took the opportunity to play along with the Color Throwdown. I used gold ink to color this cute little dragon’s horn, wings, claws, and belly. I used copic markers for the rest of him.

Hugs – CTD426

So here’s a pretty good clue that I’m running short on time – I make a card with no stamping involved. But, when it’s 9:30 on Sunday and tomorrow is a work-day, you do what you have to. 😉 So this is my (non-stamped) card playing along with the Color Throwdown.



Stamps: None
Paper: Primitive White, Kraft, Gravel Gray, Wild Cherry (MFT)
Ink: None
Dies: Stitched Flowers, Words for Friends, Blueprints 13 (MFT)

Thanks – CTD425

I’m working out of a temporary crafty space right now, and I also started this card at 10pm on Sunday night. So clearly I needed a quick and easy card to play along with the Color Throwdown. Dies to the rescue! And the colors aren’t quite right, but it’s as close as I can get with what I have available at the moment!



Stamps: none
Paper: Smooth White, Pineapple, Cornflower, Black Licorice, Vellum (MFT)
Ink: none
Dies: Many Thanks, Chevron Segments Cover-Up (MFT)
Accessories Enamel Dots

Holiday Joy to You – CTD423

I’m playing along with the last Color Throwdown of 2016. I managed to play along all year without missing one. Not bad! So I found this patterned paper that fit the colors perfectly, added some sparkly green trees, a sentiment, and it’s a Christmas card. (No promises if it gets sent out or not…)

Ink: Black Licorice (MFT)
