Friday Challenge...I like it Hot

This is one of my favorite relaxing in the afternoon drinks, a good cup of Earl Grey tea. I stamped my cup, in black permanent ink and used my water colored pencils. Nothing to it once the coloring is done. What a's on navy blue cardstock, which DD never uses and I think finds disgusting. Matted it on a few pieces of paper, added the tea string lable and viola I'm done. Hope you all have a fantastic weekend. I have the party at church on Saturday which I am looking forward to. Hugs to all.

This is all Stampin Up supplies on the center ATC and I just found some matching colors to turn it into a card. Thanks Kanani. You can click on her name in my SBS 5
list to see her work. Have a great day.

This was a tough one

The pastor of my parish is celebrating his 40 year as a Franciscan priest and Saturday we are having a dinner party for him. Since we no longer have a Catholic book store or card shope I decided to make this card. I used brown card stock as that is the color of his friar's frock. Matted on gold and the Congrats stamp is Inkadinkado the rest was the computer, brown ribbon and some Magenta peel & sticks.
Do you think it's too fru fru???

Friday Challenge

Well today the Friday challenge on No Time to Stamp is to use a solid image and create a silhouette design. I'm not sure mine is done correctly but anyway it's done.
My tree stamp is a All Night Media that I used a brown marker on and the phrase I also did the marker and it is Paper Trey Ink. Just used a dark brown card stock with some DP from Lasting Impressions and then layered my light card stock over. Gold edged my tree piece and that was all. Happy weekend to all of you in blogland.

All Sticker Card

This is of course a very simple card as it is made with stickers. Penny Black is the main focus sticker and the butterfly and gold strip are Magenta peel offs. Love to make these kind of cards as they are easy yet very pretty.
