Timeless Tuesday we are to accent with black. For my creation didn't want to do 50 shades of black or gray so I calmed myself down and started to work with a simple plan. Used red for my card base added a black mat and then took my white mat and used one of my awesome embossing folders to give some class to the card. For my image I used the summer flowers and the phrase from Friends & Flowers. Simple yet clean Did a bit of coloring, used my circle cut to set my image off and with a small strip of black ribbon behind it I figured my accent with black was fini. Love black and red together. Hope you are all well and are off to a great week. Weather here is perking up and showing signs of Spring. Take care and see you again next time.

Timeless Tuesday you are to take your birth month and follow the info for it to create your card. Well my birthday is in May and it said to use silver along with color. My card base is navy blue and then I matted the silver and over laid that with some navy and white damask print from MME ( my mind's eye). I used one of those adorable pierced die cuts and then went to work with my small image of roses are red and violets are blue ...but I cheated and made my little rose pink cause I like that better for this card. My phrase is from Spring Bouquet set. To complete it all I added
some wee little stones in blue along with my sheer ribbon of navy. Now that phrase is just too sweet for words don't you think? A mother's love endures and endures and endures some more. My Mom was a prime example of that kind of love and I sure do miss her. I hope my kids feel that kind of love from me that I was ever so blessed to have from my dear Mom. And since Mother's Day is just around the corner this card is perfect.
Happy week fellow stampers. We actually had some snow flurries today...can you believe it! Just the craziest thing ever.

Timeless Tuesday's challenge is wedding something or other. Haven't been to a wedding in one heck of a long time. Probably go to more funerals then weddings at my ripe old age. Anyway...sigh! I love this new set called
Bees & Blossoms or at least I think that's the name. I decided to just do this in a denim blue ink and not be all fussy wussy. Just stamped and then made a lower panel using an embossing folder of stripes. Added a bit of ribbon and then for my inner side of the card, I put my congrats and one of the flowers. I like doing speedy cards that are easy to just do and be done with it.
Hope all is well with all of you. We had a day of snow yesterday but today the sun was out and the temp started to rise. I say Amen to that. Happy week to you all.

Timeless Tuesday says ...frame it. Well I don't really follow directions all the time and since I stink at cutting I just pretended that by using one of the sweet pierced frames I could make it work. I used an embossing folder that looks like honey-comb. It's a SU one and I really like the effect or is it affect? Stamped the Gerber Daisy image and colored with my faithful colored pencils. Cut out 2 little bees....hear them buzzing with excitement?? Then I slapped it all gently together and added a bow easy bow. Easy except for the cutting which I admit is not my strongest ability. Fini and that's that. Hope you all have a nice week. It's been cold here and we even had some snow. Where oh where is Spring time?

Well it's Timeless Tuesday Weds. for me but oh well at least I'm back to posting. This calls for something around the house so I said to myself.,..how about bleach??? Haven't done that in a long time so that's the way I went. Stamped an image from the beautiful pear set and went to work. I embossed the image in gold and then with a clean Q-tip ( not one used in my ears) I used some Clorox bleach and gently dabbed the kraft colored c.s. so as to remove the color. I then went back with another clean Q-tip and chalk colored my image but not too much. Wanted it to be rather mono toned with the greenish papers I used. Simple and easy to do. Cut out 2 dies from Spellbinders and used some pop-up dots and I'm fini.
Hope you are all off to a good week and enjoy the soon to be weekend. Happy times to you all.

Well to me to go green is to cheer for Michigan State or here locally the Rams of Catholic Central High School where my darling grandson Cal goes. But I'll leave them out of this for now and just do as asked and go green. I used a SU embossing folder to create my background and realized after it was put together that I had glued everything to the wrong side so instead of my embossing being up from the paper it's down...oh well! Simple card with just the folder, a die cut, two punches and the little phrase "hello" from one of Flourishes sets that has a bunch of little phrases and yep I'm bad cause I never know the name of the set so excuse me paleeze. Add a bit of green ribbon and a wee stone and it's fini. Hope you are all well. We are supposed to get up to 68 by Thursday. WOW !!! Spring is coming and I couldn't be happier. Take care fellow bloggers and see you again soon.

Well the TT chanllenge over at Flourishes is to bring some RED into your card. My favorite thing is red and black so that's the way I went. Got out a new pierced type die from Spellbinders and also added a small circle and away I went. The sweet image is from Flourishes Roses are Red set. It's the perfect little image that can certainly be used in so many ways. I just used my colored pencils and in a jiffy I was fini. Hope your week is getting off to a good start. Thanks to those who sent in Valentines to the kids at the hospital. They had a wonderful day and were so happy to recieve all of our cards to be sent, received etc.

TT is to use a circle, pearls, and a tail so here we go. I used the set Angelic Hearts which is an oldie but goodie...just like myself. What a sweet little angel this image is as she flys along the sky. I'm sure she is dropping happiness along the way. Not much to color so I tried to add some color with my paper and ribbon. Used my dies of circles and added some pearls and a bow easy bow. Does that look too unsophisticated with the dotted bow? Oh well the little angel is not up to complaints so neither am I. Still hoping some of you will jump in on the Valentine drive for the kids. If everyone even sent in 5-10 it helps the great cause which is to have a fun day for a bunch of children who are stuck in the hospital. Hope you will consider and send some off. Have a great week fellow stampers.

Well TT at Flourishes is to make or use something new or something like that so..I got some new Spellbinder's dies and chose the Victorian Oval which has some neat piercing on the top and bottom. Also used the new Roses R Red image and since roses aren't always red I did mine in lavender with some purple toned violets. Used the little phrase from a Valentine set I'm Just a Love Machine and slapped it all together and added a Bow Easy bow and some bling. I'll give it to my cowboy Clint or Rusty or maybe at my age he'll be called Musty but what the hay. Hope you all are having a great week and please offer some Valentines up for the kids. See my post up top and join in.
