Last Minute Tag

I THREW my August tag together and missed the deadline for entering by like, a minute.  I'm really pissed at myself for it.  I'm still going to post it though, and explain its inspiration, and also enter it in some other challenges, 'cause I try my hardest not to let anything discourage me.  I was staring at a card the other day that I made that I hated, and I thought, well I won't blog this one.  But then I was thinking that Tim would probably show one of his tags even if he didn't like it, and that's going to be my go-to thought from now on.

I'm taking a risk entering a few challenges:

Thanks so much for looking at my odd, hodpodge tag.  I've got a pile of skeletons on my desk to turn into Halloween cards/tags.  Laters!

**GOLD and/or SILVER** New Challenge With Hobbycutz!!

Hi everyone!  Time for a new challenge with Hobbycutz!!  This week our theme is Gold and/or Silver!  I love all things sparkly so this challenge is perfect for me.  Our lovely sponsor is.

This was so much fun 'cause it was my first foray into the flat-style shaker card.  I'm really likng the ease of it and the sequins did move around pretty well.

I really like the way you can see the silver background behind the sequins, instead of the card front.  Great technique, but I can't remember where I got it from!

I'm of course entering a few challenges:

Don't forget to stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created this challenge!  Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!

Flutterbys With Flair

Happy Fridays with Flair everyone!!  I'm away from home today so I had VERY limited supplies with me to make this card.  I think that every now and then it's good to try and make something WITHOUT all the awesome die cuts and tools and embellishments.  I need to add some more sparkle and I think a few flourishes but other than that, it's not that bad.  I hope.

I'm entering this in just a few challenges:

Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!!

I think I'm gonna give myself a goal this year to make a card with ALL of Tim's Hashtag stamps and title a post for each one.  Two down......Or is it three?  Anyways.....

I'm seriously always at the last minute with Tis The Season Stamping.  I always know what I want to do, but it's also always Monday night when I sit down to do it!

This fortnight they've got a color challenge: Black, turquoise and silver.  Here's what I created:

Love, love, LOVE this tree die.  Gonna be using this a LOT lately.

I'm entering just three challenges:

A Step Towards Steampunk

I really wanted to apply to the DT Call at A Step In The Dark.  I love gothic images and stuff that veers a bit away from the happy, bright, cheery type of stuff I usually make.  I had it in the back of my head what I wanted to make but didn't actually get around to making it until just now.

I used so many layers and techniques on this and I love how it turned out.

I think this is a really important quote. I didn't even realize I had this stamp until yesterday.  #ineedtogetorganized.
