This and That

For some reason the pictures won't line up for the published post as I have them in the draft post.

Here are some cards that I created mostly for the MD Anderson Cancer Clinic but for other occasions as well.

I will post more another day. I created 50 cards in the month of October for the HYCCT SCS challenge to send to the MD Anderson Cancer Clinic.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks Darnell!

I have to thank Darnell for getting me out of my blogging slump and for sending me this birthday card. I had to blog it and show my appreciation for her thoughtfulness!  Thank you Darnell!

I haven't had time to stamp since the beginning of this month for many reasons - but i won't get into that!  I did plan to post the cards I created in October for the SCS Hope You Can Cling To month long challenge for the MD Anderson Cancer Clinic.  I sent my box of cards on Nov. 2 and hopefully they received them and are enjoying them.

If you are still out there, thanks for coming by!

Thanks a Bunch!

I finally got to posting again - I have been making lots of cards for the SCS cancer drive but I haven't been posting them here since I haven't had much time for that. I wanted to enter this into some other challenges as well so I'm taking the time to post. This tree is from Hero Arts and it is a layered stamp set.  The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions.
I am entering this card into Freshly Made Sketches:

and to TGIF Challenges:

Poppies a la O'Keefe

I have been catching up on making cards for the SCS Hope You Can Cling To (HYCCT) challenges. There is one challenge every day of October. We make the cards to send to MD Anderson Cancer Clinic in Texas for the patients and their families to use.  I have two more to do to catch up and I will post pictures of my cards here when I get the chance.  Today's challenge was to create a card inspired by famous paintings.  I love Georgia O'Keefe's paintings, especially her poppies. So I used my Penny Black Poppies stamp and colored it with Copic markers. I used the sketch from Sunday Stamps Challenge blog:

I am also submitting this to Virginia's View Challenge for October: Coloring

Merry Christmas

This card was created for the SCS CAS challenge to use words as focal point and no stamped images and for the Hope You Can Cling To challenge to create a card that does not require extra postage - or a flat card.  The tree and sentiment are both dies and i Cut them out of gold glittery paper and out of PTI Vintage Cream paper. I did the inlay technique by adhering the gold die cuts to the cram card base.
I also will submit this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge: CAS Christmas.
