Congrats Stan and Helen

Here’s the card mom needed for her brother and sister in law. I have a hard time with anniversary cards- she suggested time…  the  65 congratulations are from the computer, the clocks are  from  smARTworks. I embossed the gold clock and added color with metallic finger paints. cut the sentiment as a tag, framed it then punched a hole and added a gold tie… neat huh?

one layer chihuahuas

Sorry if you missed me- (actually sorry if you didn’t) for the past several days I was at a Catholic Daughters convention and not near a computer or internet.  I made this card before I left but didn’t have time to  post it.. the one layer wonder challenge was dog-  so here is the perfect Magenta stamp with 3 dogs and I’m  sure they are chihuahuas since between my mom and me we have 3 chihuahuas. the words are from Paula best.

frog on box

This is for 4 challenges –

 Stampin B’s design  T- texture,   G-green,  I-irridecent  &  F- for anything f which would be frogs for me. 

The tag design is from Skipping stones and the colors green purple and grey form the Play Date Cafe.

The stamp is Penny Black and the edgs of the tags are distressed so that is the last but not least challenge.  The circle cut with spellbinder  and the wild paper DCWV from a pack, the purple was put thru a cuttlebug for the dots and the tags were punchedand then tied with bows.
