WWC333 - Dawn's Challenge: All About Occasions

Today I have a very simple design to share with you.  I love these little birds, especially the one hanging upside down.  I've been wanting to use this stamp set as it was a gift from a dear friend.  It's All About Occasions at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week and a thinking of you card fits perfectly.

WWC332 - Tristan's Challenge: All Things Feminine

Hello and Happy New Year!  My first card of the year is another silhouette from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  I love silhouettes and have several of their stamps as you may remember seeing others I have created.  This one is a particular favorite as I love swans and actually collect swans.  I have brass ones, porcelain ones and even a set of pictures.  Yes, I really do love swans.

If the gold pearls seem odd, it's because there is a wee bit of black ink under the top set.  The ink was not quite dry when I cut the size down and it smeared.  Sigh... so we have gold clusters around the sentiment.

WWC331 - Marsha's Special 3-Week Anything Goes Challenge

Can you believe it?  This is our last challenge of the year and I'm hosting our special 3-week challenge.  My granddaughter's birthday is on Christmas Day and I always try to do something special for her as it sometimes gets overlooked due to the holiday.  This one was made using my new hot foil kit from Spellbinders.  Unfortunately, the foiling does not show up well.  I don't have my Shotbox set up at this time so I'm struggling to get good photos.

Anyway, you have plenty of time to share you latest projects.  It's anything goes so everything fits.  Hope you will join us.

WWC328 - Tristan's Challenge; All About Occasions

My first Christmas card of the year.  I am so far behind.  It's been a busy year and so many changes, that I haven't made very many cards of any kind.  Next year will be better.

The two stamps I used are freebies I received in recent orders from Taylored expressions.  I thought they played well together.

Helen's hosting our challenge this week and I have a very simple card for you.  Actually, it isn't the one I wanted to share but the others were complete fails.  I have a new machine to play with and I have to say I love the hot foiling.  This is the foil plate that came with the machine.  I have some new ones on the way that I'll be sharing as I create with them.  Hope you will join in the our All About Occasions challenge this week at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

WWC324 - Kath's Challenge: All About Occasions

It's coming up on my favorite time of the year.  I love Autumn.  The beautiful colors, the crisp air and the end of the summer heat.  

Today's card is another Graphic 45 design and perfect for our All About Occasions challenge.  I'm building up my stash of get well cards as I'm getting a wee bit low.  While being unwell is not much of an occasion, it still needs to be considered.  I hope I don't have to send out many of these.

WWC321 - Tristan's Challenge: All Things Masculine

Hello and welcome to another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  This time it's All Things Masculine.  I brought out another of my Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  It's the Silhouette Wolf and one of my favorites.  I haven't yet decided what sentiment I want on it so, for now, it is just the wolf looking out over the land.

WWC319 - Helen's Challenge: All Things Feminine

So much to do with not much time in which to do it.  That seems to be the story of my life these days.  I'm still going through totes from my move in January.  But, I found time to make this very simple card.  I came across a paper pad that I had forgotten about and really like the pretty blue and pink flowers.  I added a sentiment and a few drip drops and it was done.

WWC318 - Kath's Challenge: All About Occasions

Our All About Occasions challenge has rolled around again at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  Here is another birthday card I put together using up more of the bits and pieces I have in my stash.  I did some very simple coloring and love the yellows and other colors that I used.

Please forgive the quality of my photos.  My Shotbox is buried again and I didn't have enough daylight to get a good photo.  I'll do better next time.

WWC314 - Dawn's Challenge: All About Occasions

Once again I found myself using up more of the bits and pieces I have saved over time.  I'm still organizing my craft area after my move and I never seem to be able to find exactly what I'm wanting but come up with a nice allternative.

Today's card was made for our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge All About Occasions.  I send lots of thinking of you cards and need to start replenishing my supply.  Here's one for my stash.

WWC313 - Tristan's Challenge: All Things Masculine

Today's post is coming to you live from my phone.  My first time ever trying to do it this way.  So, yes, it is going to be short.  I'll be so glad when my Internet is set up.

Our challenge this time is All Things Masculine.  I made a calendar.  Once I have the ones for 2022, I'll switch out the calendar.

Once my Internet is up and running, I'll add info on where instructions are for these cute calendars.

Remember, you have until Monday, April 19th at 6 p.m. to share your project with us at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

WWC312 - Helen's Challenge: All About Occasions

Spring has come to Iowa in the form of gray skies and rain.  The grass is turning green and the flowers are starting to peek their heads up out of the ground.  When the sun finally comes out things are really going to pop!

My card for this week's Watercooler Wednesday Challenge is all about flowers.  The occasion I chose is thank you.  I always need thank you cards and I really like the way this one turned out.  I used two different embossing folders to give some texture to the layers.

WWC311 - Kath's Challenge: All Things Feminine

It's that time of year when you just want to see green and flowers.  Here in Iowa, it is slowly turning to Spring.  While I wait for the real thing, here is flower I colored using my Copic markers.  I've not used them in a very long time and I can sure tell I'm out of practice.  This is one of the images I had already stamped and added to my stash.  I attached it to a Lemon Meringue card base.  For the finishing touch, I added a few Gold Drip Drops.

WWC310 - Marsha's Challenge: All About Occasions

The Watercooler Wednesday Challenge is making a transition from a weekly challenge to a bi-weekly challenge beginning with this challenge.  Going forward, there will be two challenges a month and we will be keeping to the current themes for our challenges.  Don't worry, we'll remind you as we go along.

This week I'm hosting our All About Occasions challenge.  I needed another birthday card, so, with my limited supplies, this is what I came up with.  Funny thing is, this is not the card I intended to make.  But, Sunday, my son and his wife came over to help me go through totes and get more stuff put away.  All of my craft stuff was put in the closet still in totes and I once again don't have a clue where anything is.  I know, some day soon it will all be in a place where I can find it easily.  I have a dream!
