Mixed Media Christmas Card Challenge

Trying again over at The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge, with challenge #43 "Believe".


These are some of my favorite colors for Christmas! Silver is the best!
I made this card with a die cut poinsettia with vellum, holly berry embossing folder, and silver Colorbox ink, with a little glue and bling. Here is my entry-

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!

Art Therapy

Just popping in quickly to say that I will still be using this blog to try an occasional project, or challenge, but I have been having a lot of pain lately. Trying to keep up with regular blog posts just for fundraising for my elevator is a lot of work, and hasn't really amounted to many donations. Sorry to disappoint anyone! Since no one was playing along anyways, I decided to stop the Monday art challenges, but I will still share some crafty projects occasionally.

Heading into the holidays, I am grateful for the friends who ordered cards, donated to our YouCaring page, and supported me with cards, calls, and much needed prayers! <3

The fundraising page will remain open until Dec 31st. We had another meeting this morning with the elevator company. We should have a signed contract in the next couple of weeks, and may even have the architect begin plans before the end of the year!


Until Next Time-

"stART With A Photo" ART Challenge #5

Hello again! Welcome to our Monday "stART With A Photo" challenge #5. I am still plugging along, even though no one else has played along yet! I will not be deterred! haha

So, if you are still reading, why not consider stARTing your week with an art challenge?

This week's inspiration comes from a greeting card a friend sent me. I thought the little girl pictured on the front was pretty, and I have a thing for wells. Is that weird? Anyways-


I was inspired by the colors this week, but also since I haven't felt well lately, I used my Sizzix Framelits Flip-Its die, to create a couple get well cards.



I have been making a lot of cards lately, but remember you can do any project!

Enjoy yourself. Be creative. Share your link in the comments. Please visit some of the other participant's blogs and leave them some love too!

Thanks for playing along!

Messy Christmas To You!

Hello! I am just completing the last few cards out of the 80 I made for Christmas this year. I decided to try something new. I have been waiting to buy and use some gilding flakes for the past couple of years, so I went ahead and ordered two colors of flakes and some glue. Also, I am entering another challenge, so if you want to see that entry, it is the last card at the bottom of this post!

First, let me say, that gilding flakes make very pretty backgrounds, accents, etc. BUT they are so MESSY! I mean really messy, like in a tarred and feathered kind of way! This process might just be worse than the dreaded craft herpes....GLITTER! LOL

Seriously though, I advise following all the advice on YouTube and Pinterest from more seasoned professionals than myself, but here are a few tips I learned:

1st- Be sure your work space is large and clear.
2nd- Make sure there is no breeze, fan or movement of air. In fact, it might be a good idea to hold your breath once you open the jar of gilding fl…

Hello! If you are like me, you probably aren't a huge fan of Mondays! However, if you play along with us every Monday, you can stART your week with a challenge. Art makes everything better, even Mondays!
stART with a Photo Challenge #4
This picture was taken by me while our family was serving at a camp for families with disabilities. We were all praying and holding hands. It reminds me of the love of friends. So, I have this special birthday card as my project for this week's challenge.
