Rejoice in the Quiet

I'm running late with my post but I have a good youngest son is up here for Christmas with his girlfriend. It's his first time back home since moving to Oregon 2 yrs ago and our first time meeting his girlfriend. Needless to say I am soaking up every little bit of time with them that I can before they leave on Jan.2!

The new Sunday Stamps challenge is a color challenge and I just love these colors, which are my absolute favs, blue and greens. I'm a nature themed person and most of the walls in my house are either painted blue or green, with a few browns thrown in here and there LOL

For my card I used the new Power Poppy set Cuddle in the Cabin. I adore the images in this set and the colors of the challenge inspired me to pull them out and create what a see when I drive up to Denali National Park, which is 3 hours north of me. There is a large section of the drive where you are surrounded by mountains on both sides of the road and spruce trees are scattered across the landscape. I've also seen moose and caribou on my drives back and forth, so this is what my card captures. 

Make sure you head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us, we'd love to see how you interpret the colors!

May Your Holidays Bloom

It's time for a new challenge over at the Sunday Stamps blog and this week we have a fun sketch from Mellissa!

For my card I used an image from a brand new Power Poppy set called Garden of Gratitude. I just love this unique image of oranges growing on a trellis. You can even change them from oranges into any color ornament you desire!

I kept my card simple, coloring my image on a separate piece of paper and then using my Scan N Cut to cut it out. I popped it up with dimensionals and then stamped my sentiment in orange below it. I got out my paper piercing tool and pierced a border around the card base.

Head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT came up with and then play along with us, we'd love to see how you interpret the sketch!

Merry Christmoose

It's been a while since I've been able to play along with a challenge so since I was crabby and needed some creative time earlier today I decided to lock myself in my craft room for a bit and play along with the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

For my card I used the newly released Forest Fellas set from Power Poppy. I just adore this moose! I grabbed some plaid paper for the back square and mounted it all on some green patterned paper with a brown card base. The sentiment was stamped in red on a white banner and the moose head popped up with dimensionals. Quick and easy but enough to make me feel better and ready to join the household again :)
