Pictures, Pictures & More Pictures

June was definitely a busy busy month.  Soooo many challenges, sooooo many swaps, soooooo many birthdays, and the list goes on and on.  Here are a few samples of cards, ATCs I've made for various challenges , etc from The Crafters Cafe and The Outlawz Blog Sites.

The first  group of pictures are those I made kits for to use with my "Cardshark" Group at the Park Place Resdience.  This month our cards theme was Fall.  The samples are the cards I made for them to see.  Some pictures are not as clear as I'd like, but the paper I found was fantastic .  It's from K & Company.
Tim Coffey Specialty Paper.  The papers are double sided which is so good.  I had a lot of flexibility when I was creating the cards.  With the cards I make with my Cardshark Friends, I have to have it pretty basic.  The "girls" range in age of mid-seventies through late nineties.  Some of the visual as well and hand dexterity is a bit diminished.  But with these projects, all they have to do is glue.  It's worked out quite well.

The next card is one I made for a challenge on The Outlawz Blog.  They have daily challenges just like we do at  The Crafter's Cafe.  This was a Creative Freebie Challenge.  You are given a freebie image and you just have to create a card using that image.  You have 2 weeks to complete it.

For this card:
A2 size from the Recollections Collection
Card Stock for oval is from the -Old World Stack
Spellbinders Nestabilities-oval
Perfect Pearls-Pewter
Watercolor inks and pencils
Dotted Swiss Embossing Template

The last Project I'm sharing with you is from our monthly ATC Swap at TCC.  This month's theme was -Sandcastles.  Had a lot of fun with this.    I did not use a stamped or digi image.  I found a wonderful freebie  and used that picture.  Added a bit of bling with my beach ball.  My "frame" is regular sand.


  1. Hi! I am following your link from the Outlawz Followers Thread :O)

    Don't feel bad about being a Newbie as I just started this week as well :oD {{{hugz}}} So maybe we can learn together :o)

    I am having a bit of difficulty getting used to your blog setup as mine is much more static so you can just click on a link and go without having to hunt for what you want. But I do enjoy seeing all of your creations :o)

  2. I can't wait to get this! :) I used sand on mine too! LOL

  3. The sand didn't exactly do what I wanted it to do, but I was pleased with how it turned out. I've never used an image like this instead of a digi. I guess it's OK. Thanks for your comment, looking forward to see what you've done with the sand.
