It is unfair to select your winners from only those who CAN comment.  Some of us are not computer geeks and don't have AIMs or Open IDs or Typepads, etc.  Some of us don't even know what those things are!!!  If I can use my name, I comment. if it requires a URL or some other thing, I can't, and that disqualifies me from participating.  I keep trying, but I never get to play the whole thing out, and I'm upset about the unfairmess.  What is a Google account anyway!!???? LOL  Just frustrated… Continue

Stamp TV Kit- wow

I just received the new Stamp TV Kit, "Sent With Love" and since this was my very first order, I did not know what to expect.  I cannot emphasize enough the quality of these materials.  Buying items online can be a bit risky, but because I trusted Gina to deliver nothing but the best, I gave it a try.  Wow!  These stamps, ribbons, and papers are unbelievable.  I have been making cards for a couple of years and thought I had purchased some pretty good materials,… Continue

frame with fancy tags

Well I wanted to try the frame with fancy tags, but I don't have the round spellbinders, I have ovals. So I tried it and here it is.... the image is from the Vintage Moth, and the sentiment is computer generated.


When I made the focal image and frame, it was too big for the standard size card, so I used one piece of card stock folded in half, so it is a jumbo card. It was for a little girl's eighth birthday. Her theme was Eclipse, and red and black, so it fit…

The hardest thing about these challenges is: if you win which stamp set to choose.

More Challenges

My DH and I arrived back at the Log Home and my toys today. Between unpacking the truck, putting away groceries, and cooking dinner, I managed to get two more cards done for the Countdown Challenge. I wish I could have done more. I wanted to try the wax paper background, but don't have an iron, I tried with my craft iron, it just didn't get hot enough, and I don't have an acrylic roller for my brayer, so I couldn't do the rubberband background. Oh well, I guess I can't play all the time :(
