613 Avenue Create #43-Anything Goes/Option Paper Piecing

Hi, folks!  Today at 613 Avenue Create we have the Option to Paper Piece in our Anything Goes Challenge.  Using our sponsor Squigglefly's image Do You Care for Tea, I made this card:

It's actually hard to tell from the picture, but, counting from the top, I paper pieced the second and fourth cups.  Those cups are also popped up with foam tape.  I didn't use the sentiment "Do You Care for Tea" on my card, using instead a sentiment from PaperTrey Ink Tea for Two.  I absolutely love tea, tea cups and tea pots, so I was delighted to use this darling image.  Everything is from my stash.

I'm entering these challenges:  Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes; Crafty Hands Challenge Blog - Anything Goes.

A Halloween Card

Happy Fall, Y'All! Today I'm posting a Halloween card for my grandniece.  She's almost a teen (her birthday is next month).  She still loves Halloween treats, so I made a card highlighting my favorite Halloween treat - candy corn.  (My husband and I have already eaten two bags, so I'm not buying any more - LOL!)

I had fun putting the candy corn in the jar.  I even did a bit of masking at the bottom of the jar - go, me! I think purple, black and orange are great Halloween colors.  Cardstock: my stash; Stamps: CTMH Joyful Jar and Remarkable Wreath; Ink: CTMH Black.  I colored the candy corn with Sharpies and added American Crafts Baker's Twine.

613 Avenue Create #41 - Anything Goes/Option Pile It On

Today's challenge at 613 Avenue Create has the option of Pile It On. This doesn't come easy to me.  I'm a CAS crafter through and through.  I colored the cute Tilly the Dinosaur from Lacy Sunshine with Distress Inks and Distress Markers, then used a Nestabilities die to cut it out.  I added a cloud brad, two types of Washi tape, two buttons with thread and a sentiment.  That's a lot for me to put on a card :)

Everything is from my stash.  I'm having fun using what I have.  I've entered these challenges:  Brown Sugar Challenge Blog: Anything Goes; Totally Papercrafts: 1 image, 2 papers, 3 embellishments.  

I hope you have a great day!

Job Well Done

Good Morning!  Here's a little card I made for our grandson to congratulate him on a job well done at school.  He lives across the country from us, so Granny and Grandpa send him cards and notes frequently. He's so special to us!

Everything is from my stash.  I used the CTMH Artiste Cricut cartridge.  Our grandson was happy to receive this card - and the monetary treat inside :)

I'm entering these challenges:  Send A Smile 4 Kids - Bright Colors; 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog - Anything Goes; Addicted to Stamps and More! - Anything Goes, and ABC Challenges - in honor of children.
