Try Stampin on Tuesday #319

Life throws us challenges everyday, but some are more challenging than others.  Our challenges could be like that, some harder than others but it's always fun to see what everyone comes up with. 😉
This is a card I made a few months back, please forgive me for not making a new one, I've been out of town. Just found out one of my sister has  aml leukemia. Now that is a challenge!!! They will be starting chemo as soon as they get her heart settles down.

It is sorta round don't you think??? I made this card with the windows think die, it will fit nicely in an A-2 envelope. It has a rubber band on the inside so when it's pulled out it pops together. The picture above shows me holding it flat. The die is altered a bit so that it folds up over the back panel and lays flat for mailing.
Thanks for stopping and if you would, please send a prayer or two up for my sister Kathleen. I believe in God, He is always with us even during the hardest challenges life send our way.

Theme: A circular or oval card

Try Stampin' on Tuesday # 318

Hey there, it's that time again.  Now I do hope that you've been finding time to stamp and have some fun, relax, and be creative.  I've been stamping but just not posting for a while, our internet is limited and I used a lot last month in the Magnolia March Madness on you tube with the Tilda stamps, I believe there is a video in a previous link if your interested.  Well on to Try Stampin!!

We have a fun sketch and theme if you decide to use it.  It can be a challenge sometimes but that is good for us, it makes us a better stamper if we try to go outside of our comfort zone-our usual.  I guess that's why we have the sketch challenge and encourage you to use it.  (but remember you don't have to...we just want you to stamp!!!)

Our theme is : A Trio of Words
My take on this...  :0)   
This was a quick easy card to make, some might recognize the supplies as from the April Paper Pumpkin from Stampin' Up.  If you don't know what that is it is a card/project kit that comes to your house once a month.  It has ALL the supplies in it that you need to make the projects, this month that meant 12 cards.  But there is always a little extra in supplies that you can use on other creations.  The kit comes with directions on how to make the suggested projects if you like them and want to copy.  It is a prepaid subscription which they send out on about the 10th of each month.  If you would be interested I could help you find out more about this great opportunity,  ;0)     just leave me a message and I'll get back with you. (or if you have a demonstrator I do know that she would be more than happy to help you.)   

                                Thank you for stopping and have a great day - it will be great if you get to stamp even just a little bit!!

A Burst of color - Try Stampin' on Tuesday #316

I decided to use the suggested theme literally and use my new color burst powder! I had every intention of going with three flowers, like the sketch had three around the sentiment but thought it needed more flowers. I'm still learning how to use this new product but I like how the background turned out. What do you think?  Thanks for stopping by and if you would be so kind and have a minute or two please leave me a comment, thanks. Happy stamping 😄

Extra Try Stampin Challenge #315

Had a card to make for a card class on Tuesday and thought I might as well follow Try Stampin's challenge.  Turned out nice I think and I hope the ladies enjoy it.  Be sure to check out the inside as it has a pop out.  I used the Balloon Adventure bundle in the Stampin' Up Occasions Catalog. This is such a wonderful bundle as it can be used so easily for anyone!!  I've got more from this set so stay tuned.
 click here if you haven't come from the Try Stampin' site and you can go see all the other designers cards.  If  you have come from Try Stampin' thank you for stopping by, I so love to hear from those who come and really do read all the comments.  SOOOO if you would be so kind could you find it in your heart to leave me a few words?!   Have a wonderful week and I'll be back so stay tuned :0)
Optional technique: three different patterns

Try Stampin' 314 Baby Animals



Sometimes it seems that our business comes in bunches, know what I mean.  Activities seem to bunch up and I often wish I could spread them out.  My card for this challenge came together quickly and that is good since I've been busy. I turned the card since I wanted my tags to be big enough to hold my congratulations sentiment. The theme: Baby Animals was perfect since I had a baby card I needed.     I do hope you'll play with us and show us your card.
       Have a wonderful day, find a spare min. or two and relax with your stamps, paper and ink!!



I decided to play along with a color challenge over on Fab Friday color challenge
