What's Cookin'

I made this card for the current challenge over at the High Hopes blog. This image is from the newest release that was made just last week. Check it out HERE.

Patterned paper and brown cardstock were from TAC, a border punch from Friskars made the scallops, and the embossed background is a folder from Cuttlebug.

Caught in Glass

I think that is the name of the technique anyways. I saw it about a month ago on SCS and wanted to try it. I came across a small problem. My black embossing powder is old, at least 14 years old. It did some weird things, but still, even though it doesn't look just like it was supposed to for this technique, I like it.

I used an old sketch from either SCS or Mojo Monday for this card...sorry I can't remember right now.

Notebook Created by Anthony and Brandon

This is an altered notebook created in a dual effort by my two sons, Anthony and Brandon. It was created for this week's challenge over at the High Hopes blog. I told the boys if we won that they could pick out the free stamps. Anthony is also going to use the notebook for some of his school work.

Anthony chose the paper and created the layout, and BJ colored it.

Teddy Bear Blog Hop

I joined a blog hop that is just my style. I LOVE teddy bears, a teddy was one of the first gifts my DH bought me, and we even had bear figures on our cake topper at our wedding. Did I mention I like teddy bears? LOL.
This little teddy bear is and old set from TAC, and one that I fell in love with the first time I saw it. The background is made from an even older TAC background set.
Cardstock is kraft, SU Peach, brown and ivory.

Now go check out some other cute teddy cards on the blogs below.

Toadally Awesome

I used four TAC sets on this bookmark/pocket card. "Pocket Peepers," "Running Stitches," "Speckle," and "Hoppy Everything." It didn't turn out like what I had envisioned when I started, but that is ok.

Big thanks to Laura for stamping of the cute little frog image for me....wish I had Pocket Peepers, but, oh well.

The God of Hope

A very clean and simple card, but I think it works well. I wanted the words to really speak.

My picture didn't capture the color of the flowers well...they are a much more of an orangey color.

All supplies TAC.
