The race is on! Quite honestly, I am not much for the "race", the hustle and bustle of the holidays....especially as I get older! I made this for the free for all challenge over on SCS which was to make a black Christmas/wintery card for black Friday. I used DRS Designs Tree Line border 981P and the greeting portion of Traveling Afar 501K. I stamped the trees and sentiment in versamark and embossed in white. Some little snowflakes punched and clear rhinestones added, an edge punch and some lace...........

Take time and breathe! That is what I keep telling myself!!!

Have a wonderful weekend!

I stamped my image in gray, sponged in brocade blue for the frozen stream and then added crystal effects to achieve the look. Flower soft was added to the trees.

I hope you have all had fun on the hop and good luck!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Apache Blessing

Happy Saturday!  I hope everyone is settling in for a wonderful Thanksgiving week!  It is by far my favorite holiday and I enjoy this time to just be GRATEFUL.  Grateful for all of the people in my life and for my life!
My card today features a new greeting from DRS Designs called Apache Blessing and the image is the Silhouette Hiker.  I stamped the images in black and brayered the colors on in the following order:  from the top I used summer sun cameo coral and pink passion.  From the bottom, I brayered a bit of pink passion.  I had masked the sun....so removed the masked and sponged in summer sun.  I brayered summer sun and cameo coral on the sentiment and both were sponged around the edges with black.  I finished it off with a photo corner, yellow and pink twine and a few buttons.  

Have a blessed Thanksgiving Holiday!

Take care,

Pam

Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #81 Our favorite technique

Hello to everyone in blogland!  I have been a wee bit absent for a while as I've been busy visiting potential colleges with my daughter.  It is nice to be back!
My cards today were done for Speedy's challenge this week that can be found over on the MFP's blogspot.  It is to make a card using our favorite technique.  I would have to say that one of my most favoritest (haha...not a word) techniques is to use pearlescent watercolors in my creations.  I cleaned my craft room last week and am trying to use up some things.  I came across some mulberry paper and decided to paint on it with pearlescent watercolors.  I stamped both images in noir black and then watercolored them.  I wet the edges of the tree in order to give the distressed appearance.  For the nuthatch, I used scissors and trimmed around it.  Both images were applied to the cardstock with a glue stick.  I sneaked the sets from MFP's a Heinrich Co.  Trip to Lancaster and Peaceful Nuthatch that will be released very soon.

Have a great evening.
