Music to my ears!!!!!

Hello everyone: I have a card to share made with my favorite little critters, the House Mouse siblings, this time is a Holiday card, hope you like it.  I'm linking this card to a few challenges at the end of this post.

The image is stamped onto a panel of Strathmore Multimedia water color paper with Stazon black ink and colored with SU markers and an aqua painter. The pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley and the pine branches and mistletoe from the brand new SU die set called Pretty Pines, just so beautiful.
The little jingle bells are from Memory Box, red twine from my stash.

Let Us Be Thankful.....

Hello everyone: The Holiday Season is well on it's way, Autumn is also in full swing with it's gorgeous colors and the days are clean and crisp inviting all of us to start thinking Turkeys, Pumpkin pies, warm family gatherings and delicious food but also, about being grateful for all of these Blessings, big and small and how fortunate we are about having family and friends to share them with.  This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, our theme is "Gobble Til' You Wobble" which means we want to see cards about giving thanks, whether is a Thanksgiving card or just a simple "Thank You" card, please join us in the gallery.  Here is my card, made with this super old and really beautiful stamp from my little stash of Thanksgiving images, I didn't realize it until now, I truly do not have a lot of stamps for this time of the year, I need to remedy that!!


This image is stamped onto Strathmore Multi Media water color paper with Versafine black ink and clear heat embossed then colored with SU markers and an aqua painter.
The pattern paper is from a stash of left overs and the size was just perfect for this card, I didn't even had to measure it. The gold corner die cut was a left over from another project, the little flower is from a pack I bought from the dollar bin and it's been just sitting on my desk for a while.

Feeling Thankful.....


Hello everyone: This time of the year is a favorite of mine, not only because of the gorgeous colors of the Autumn but because the Holidays are almost here and that means awesome reunions with family and friends, good food, festive colors, love and appreciation for all our Blessings, big and small.
This time over at RETRO RUBBER we want you to share with us your cards with the perfect theme for this time of the year, "Be Thankful", here is my card.


This image is from Inkadinkado, in the process of looking for this stamp to give you a date I found out it's discontinued and it's only available on Ebay listed as RARE, I'm so darn lucky I've had it for a good 8 years. 
I stamped this image onto a piece of Strathmore Muli Media water color paper that I die cut with the retired SU die set called Floral Framelits, with Versafine black ink and clear heat embossed it then, colored it with SU markers and an aqua painter. The pattern papers are from a discontinued line from Lili of the Valley and the sentiment from a Flourishes set called "A Season of Thanks".

Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment is from that Flourishes set also and the corner stamp from my stash.
