Simon Says Stamp and Show has a Thank You challenge this week.

Here is the card I made.

I embossed the card base with a Sizzix embossing folder. The background on the front panel was stamped with an Inkadinkadoo stamp set. The birds are a Darcy stamp. The card is finished off with a banner and sentiment from a Simon Says stamp set. The hearts are a Simon Says die.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.


It’s that scary time of year. I made my Halloween cards and sent them out. Thanks to Frankenstorm Sandy, I’m not sure when they ¬†will arrive.

The first two are for Friends with Pets. The last is one made with new Tim Holtz Halloween dies.

This card used a combination of Inkadinkadoo stamps, Martha Stewart stamps, and My Favorite Things stamps and punches as well as a new label die from Simon Says.


Here I jazzed up the simple black and white with an ornate Valencia Border Memory Box die.

Here is a card that resulted from a trip to Ink About It to pick up an Art Journal. These Tim Holtz Halloween dies had just arrived. It was hard to resist these kids. I put them on a long gate fold card.

Have a Happy Halloween!




Papertrey Blog Hop asked for non traditional holiday color schemes.

Here is what I selected.

Here is my card, using Papertrey dies and stamps and the bird image from InkaDinkaDoo stamps.

A closer look.

Thanks for Hopping over!
