Christmas Angel card

Here's another recent card using a Digi Darla image. I mostly like CAS cards, and also because I mail most of them, I don't use as many embelishments as I might otherwise.

When I know I'm going to "hand out" a card, I go for a little more bling!
But I like the simplicity of this image and it's fitting for a CAS card.

Also, I won a month of images a while back using a Digi Darla image, and that was NICE!

Digi Darlas DT call

Go check it out Here if you are interested in learning more.
I think I'd love to use more of these images to make cards, and being a part of this DT sounds like fun!

I love their images, and have used them a lot. Here's one recent one card I made.

TTC06 Challenge

Here's a card I made for entry into the TTC06 (Touch Twin Marker Color Challenge) , using the chosen colors of Red, Yellow, Sand and Brown!

This month's challenges were sponsored by Gina K, so what perfect timing.

This is using a freebie image given out today by Gina K, and what a cutie. I love it. And it makes for a perfect CAS card!

Happy Thanksgiving!

If you've taken the time to drop by, I want you to know I wish you and yours a Wonderful Thanksgiving Day!

Sorry I don't have a card to show, I'm actually away from home and handing several out to family (and I forgot to take pics of all these too). First time we've gathered with this bunch in several years, and I'm enjoying it all. Hope you have time to spend with your family and friends and I'll post more in a few days!

Love this new image....

I positively love this new image!

You can find it at Clear Dollar Stamps, and it was designed by Trudy Sjolander.

I was trying to make a more masculine card with it. I don't know, did I succeed? Well, it's not frilly and feminine anyway!

Hope you all are enjoying a wonderful Veteran's Day!

Christmas card for Clips N Cuts!

Well, here is my first Christmas card for the season. I'm entering this into the giveaway at Clips N Cuts! I always find some great videos there, and this latest was so cute, but I don't have any of the Lawn Fawn images she used, so I just went for it!

I just love this paper I used for the top of the card. It's from the Glitter Sweet Matstack.

Train station...

Here's a card I made for my brother Doug's retirement party today. He has worked for the railroad since he was 17 years old, going to school and then working at night. He just now retired a couple weeks ago at age 62.

So I thought this cute image from The Stamping Boutique was perfect!
And I found a sentiment/quote that was nearly perfect, I just changed the last line instead of saying "I sit at a work station" to a rest station! Although I don't really expect him to just rest.

Here's are a couple of Fall/Thanksgiving cards I've recently made for some family members I don't see very often.

I'm entering them into the karens-kakes-krafts challenge.
