A VISIT WITH MY GRANDDAUGHTER

A SPECIAL VISIT WITH MY GRANDDAUGHTER 

My granddaughter "Laura" was visiting earlier in November and loves to make crafts.  She especially loves Owls right now and wanted to know if I had any Owl punches and could she make some cards with me.  Well, let me tell you, it was a Special two hours that I spent with her.   So I showed her the Owl punch and away we went.  We ended up making six cards.  She is using them for her birthday as invitation for six of her friends.  

Here are the Bookmarks she made:

For some reason there were no pictures of the outside of the card.
This Owl is from Sizzix and was on the front of the card too.
"Thank You Laura" for a wonderful time!  You are a natural for card making and choosing colors.   Laura will be 10 in December.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog.

I loved  this challenge.  Who does not have a Reindeer?  My Reindeer is from Tattered Lace and I love him.  I popped a Red jewel on his nose, and made it look like he is in a snow storm.

WATERCOOLER WEDNESDAY WWC 42

WWC 42 - Bev's Photo Inspiration Challenge



http://watercoolerchallenges.blogspot.ca/

Wow, this challenge took a lot of thought.  There were so many shapes, colors and individual objects to work into a card.  My inspiration came mostly from the picture hanging on the wall.  In my imagination I could see someone flying a kite in a beautiful blue sky with lots of clouds.  My card has the clouds, house windows representing the shapes on the couch and the column lamps, a silver butterfly kite and some lamp posts representing the ceiling fixture.  I also used five colors: black, blue, white, green and pink on the doors. 


Inside card:


Supplies:

Cardstock:  Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black, Whisper White, Lucky Limeade, Silver Foil
Ink:  Basic Black, Lucky Limeade, Blushing Bride Marker
Stamp Sets:  Holiday Home, Moving Forward, Funny Bones Sentiment
Misc:  Cloudy Day E.F., Holiday Home Die Cut, Embossits Beautiful Wings

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week and Happy Carding!
Heather :)

WATERCOOLER WEDNESDAY WWC 41

WWC 41 - Jackie's Sketch Challenge


http://watercoolerchallenges.blogspot.ca/

Another beautiful sunny day in Vernon with a temperature of 5 above. Sounds like more snow on Silver Star Mountain. I won't be skiing this year because of my hip operations, but next year should be out there enjoying the snow sports. 

The design team displayed some lovely cards.  I thought I would keep to the Christmas card theme and here is my interpretation of the sketch above.  He is a cheery little guy with a Santa hat on.
