Crafty Recap



Hello and happy Sunday.  I was inspired by this fun card of Betsy's during PTI Release week.  I loved her string of mittens, and strung up some brightly colored hats for my card, which I am entering at PTI Create Along with Us.





I had to break out my brand new MFT New York Skyline die for my next card, which I am entering at AAA Cards #126:  Moonlight, Addicted to Stamps and More #314: Clean and Simple, and Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes.  I created my moon by masking off a circle and blending several Distress Inks all around it.






A couple of Stamplorations Reindeer are frolicking under a starry night in my next card.  I am entering this card at Simon Says Monday Challenge: Starry Night and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Animal Antics.





For my last card, I was inspired to combine the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays #210: Pinks & Greys and Calling All Sistahs #18.  I used 3 different shades of pink and 3 different shades of grey, although it is a little hard to tell from this photo.  I used MFT Homespun Stitch Lines dies to create the random stitching pattern on my light pink front panel and MFT Grosgrain Texture Board to add texture to my dark pink front panel.





Lest you think I have been slacking off in my crafting, I thought I'd announce here that I have joined Tracey's creative team for her annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags project.  I have been working away behind the scenes, creating lots of tags that I will be excited to share during the month of November.  I hope that you will be inspired to play along.   Watch this space...



Thanks For Visiting
