Power Poppy Christmas Geraniums


I made this for Power Poppy's Peep of the Week Challenge.    You've heard that it's all about perspective.  This holiday season, I have battled crowds, dealt with extra traffic, been caught up in the hustle & bustle of the season.   I have chosen to to go out in the crowds & also chosen to stay home avoiding the madness.   But it was a choice...  a friend of mine had those choices taken away from her when a driver tried to beat a red light & plowed into her.  She was lucky, she only has a crushed ankle, but her dr told her not to expect to go back to work until March.  She's in a walker or in a wheel chair.  She doesn't get to make the same choices I can make right now.    I am sending this card to her & to me, it's just a card, to her... it will make her week.   Will you join me in sending a Random card to someone this week that isn't for any reason other to just say "I'm thinking of you."


Stamps: Geraniums Take Two Power Poppy
C/s: red, white, black,
DP: Green Plaid
Copics, Seeing Spots ef, Wink of Stella Glitter Pen, black rhinestones

Until next time!

Snowflake Christmas Card


The snowflake is navy, but I can't get it to not look black.  Maybe I'll try again in the natural light.  Anyway, I'm working on some Christmas cards.  I was trying to CASE a card I saw, but didn't have a big enough snowflake die.  (although, I thought I bought one, so I just have to remember where I put it! )

Stamp: Sentiment is from Cardinal Christmas
Embossing Folder: The Paper Studio
Die: Taylored Expression
Silver glitter tape, clear rhinestone

Until next time!

PPWCMD01 & HYCCT1410 Azaleas



This is an "out of my comfort zone" card.  I have admired Dina's work... her coloring out of the lines, her mixed media & how it looks so good together.  For the Power Poppy World Card Making Challenge on Day #1, we could choose any of the "Inspire Me Monday" challenges & I chose the one where Dina showed us how to Watercolor with Distress Markers.   I also combined it with today's HYCCT challenge on SCS "something's missing".   I'm barely getting this in before the deadline, but I did get all 4 Power Poppy World Card Making Day challenges finished!!!

Stamps: Azaleas Power Poppy
c/s: white, Kraft, Bubble Gum Pink
Tim Holtz Distress markers, watercolor brush, lemonade pink ribbon, oval nestabilities

Until next time!
