Sugar plums



Dance little mouse, dance.

Hi. I am back with another card for the color challenge going on over at Inky Paws. Once again, my card is missing one of the colors- green. Crazy how that happened , since it is the most beautiful color in the world.


You have one more week to play along. To create my scene today, I used Newton's Nook's Nutcracker Squeak, Forest Scene Builder set, and Sweater Weather.                


You have the next two weeks to play along with our color challenge at Inky Paws! We will chose a RANDOM entry to win a $20.00 Newton's Nook store gift certificate. Our favorite entries from each challenge will be highlighted the following Monday, so all entries have a chance to be featured on the blog.

The deadline to enter today's challenge is this Friday, November 15, 2019 at MN CST. The winners will be announced on the following Monday at Inky Paws.

Sweater weather


Hey everyone.  What are your thoughts on teal, green, pink, and white? Those are the colors for the challenge over at  Inky Paws. this week.
It's funny I just now realize as I write this blog that I took the challenge as teal green not as teal and green. It must be because when I made my cards I was quite sick with a cold. I suppose my mind wasn't functioning well. Please feel free to use green and teal, they are awesome together.


For my card today I used one of my top five stamp sets from Newton's Nook- "sweater weather".

Thanksgiving bounty

 

Happy November everyone! It is the start of the trifecta holiday season, starting with Thanksgiving. It is also the start of another challenge at The Rainbow Card Connection. The theme this month is "magically metallic". So get your metal on and create a card using metallic colors.


I chose a Thanksgiving theme for this months card. I dug out my perfect pearls from Ranger to create my metallic fall leaves and foliage. I used the Gina K "Autumn Wreath Builder "set and Reverse Confetti's 'Give thanks" (no longer available :().



I was a bit perplexed about what my music inspiration would be for this month. Magical metallics is a tough one to find a song for. I am going for a song about some very special metals, that will start putting you in the holiday spirit. It is from one of my most favorite holiday shows. Let me know if you recognize it.





Be sure to head over to The Rainbow Card Challenge , see what the other DT members came up with and join the fun. You have all month to play in our "magically metallic" challenge.

Good morning everyone! It's a bright and sunny Monday! There is still a few days left to play along with the holiday mix-up challenge over at Inky Paws.
Today's card quick and easy if you need a fast card to send to your favorite ghost, witch or little goblin. I just die-cut a bunch of pumpkin faces from Newton's Nook's "Pick a pumpkin". I stamped "eek" from Newton's Nook's"Newton's perfect pumpkin". I layered this piece on top of glitter paper. The glitter paper was white and I colored it orange with my copic markers.

Newton in the patch


Hey there weeners! Halloweeners I mean. 10 days until the creepy, spooky and oh so chilly day!! I have been making spooky and fun cards like a mad woman!
Today's card is inspired by a "holiday mix-up" theme over at Inky Paws. I chose Halloween as my holiday.


Today's card features "Newton's boo-tiful night" and the sentiment is from "Halloween trio", both from Newton's Nook. Unconventional colors create this cute and whimsical card.

Thankful




A short posting today. I have been sick with a horrid chest cold for the last several days. Today is reminder that there is still time to play along at Inky Paws for a fun sketch challenge.

It's hard to feel thankful when my nose is running like a sieve and I am hacking up my right lung, but hey life could be so much worse. I am thankful for family, friends, the changing seasons, a good book and a hot bath.


My card today uses the cute set from Newton's Nook "Autumn Mice".

Happy HOWL-oween!!




Three weeks until Halloween! I have been busy working on frightfully cute and whimsical boo cards.
Today's card was inspired by the new sketch challenge at Inky Paws.
I kept right to the sketch- no deviations. I used Happy Howl-ween, frameworks dies, speech bubbles dies, and fancy edges tags. All from Newton's Nook. 


The orange twine on my card is from Newton's Nook too. It is the twine that ties my stamps and dies together when I place a order with them I always save the pieces.
