Tic Tac Toe # 18

Today I'm playing off with a new challenge to me.

I used Stencil, Blue & Green,Texture.

I used the dot stencil and paste for the texture. First time I've used paste with a plastic stencil.  
Then sponged with Blue & Green ink. The paste resists the ink. 
Added 2 Sea horses and sequins bubbles. 
 I can hardly wait for the next challenge. Tic Tac Toe gives you so many ways to create a card.

Make My Monday Challenge #30

Fall is starting and I love making fall paper and coloring leaves. We really don't get fall leaves here in Florida. There are a few trees that change leaf color in January and February but its few. 
 I've made both papers with sponged ink and stamping images of leaves. 
My embellishments are 2 small punched leaves.

Make My Monday Challege #29

The kids are going back to school all over the world so today's challenge is Back To School.
Go on over and your card.

I've stamped the desks on water color paper and then water colored with Distressed Inks. It's very faint in the photo but the Welcome back on the chalk board was stamped on black card stock with the newest Distress Ink Picket Fence.

Make My Monday Challenge #28

Today is my first challenge with the Make My Monday Design Team. The theme is an inspiration photo which can be seen HERE. I've seen this layout a lot lately on Pinterest so gave it a try. My card has a sponged with distressed ink panel that is stamped on the card base. There are 2 raised layered panels on each side of it and my image is water colored with Distressed Inks and the sand glittered. Go on over and be INSPIRED!!

Sparkles Christmas Challenge #67

I'm joining the Design Team at Sparkles Christmas Challenge. It is a monthly Christmas Card with a theme challenge. What a fun way to get started on those Holiday Cards. This month there is a Surprise prize package donated by Marianne Design if you are chosen as the winner. Just make a Shaped Christmas Card and go on over and join in the fun.

 Here is my card. I've made a round card using  dies. I just purchased this snowman stamp the other day at Hobby Lobby.  I think I would ink it a dark blue color rather than the black the next time I use it. I've outlined it and added some sparkle with a glitter pen. That doesn't show well in the photo. Behind the snowman I used a snowflake background stamp.

Back from vacation

Well I had fun!!! But now back to normal until the next time I can get away. We had a great time. 
We visited Daniel Boone cave park in Lexington, NC. This is a cave he was to have stayed. 

We visited the grave of Daniels parents.

We saw the worlds largest Duncan Phyfe Chair.

Saw the worlds Largest Chest of Drawers. I can't reach my socks.

We cooked a turkey over a campfire. It turned out really good. 
That's my grandson Anakin.

 I watched my children play Pokemon Go. If you haven't seen this game you really will be amazed at where all these creatures are. I have to admit it was fun looking for them.
 my sons

my daughter and her boyfriend

We also met up with Santa. Christmas in July celebration. 

Here's the whole gang. 

I'm missing a daughter and her husband, 2 Grand daughters and 3 Great Grand daughters. Her family was not able to meet up with us this time.
