Back to normal & Challenge Master plus Tellen's Place cards


First let me say I hope everyone had a safe and Happy New Year! I am hoping this year brings much less stress to my family. I am praying my parents will get into the new house soon, and that they will be able to sleep without worry of this one burning down. Anyway, I have to say that I hate being back to normal! I have always hated schedules which having children in school brings! I miss our late night togetherness, the stupid little game we played when laying in bed. Before we called it a night! I love being with them that it is depressing for me. Oh well I guess that is part of my life!

Not much card making went on during the holidays. I was lucky that at most DT places we had off. I did as you know score goodies for Christmas and I was able to use them in some of my cards you will see coming up. I did have to make a card for my father in laws birthday on New Year's Eve so I will show you that one first!

Paper: Bazzill, Dcwv, SU

Stamp: Clear Dollar Stamps

Metal Dots: Occasions

Medium: Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol

I actually made this card not from a sketch! It is my own brain storm! I know it is boring but this is why I work with sketches!

Okay to my next card which is for Challenge Masters. If you have not checked it out yet please do! You can find an amazing place for all crafting by clicking here.

Fink, what great cards you made; that lawn mower is great and the papers are so cool. I like to work with sketches too and you did an awesome job, my friend. The second card is just as nice, lovely papers! I love the glittery silver on the third card. You did a great job coloring the Tellen Design image and that bow; girl, you're just so good! ;D It's nice that you enjoy your time with your kids like that. These are moments you'll cherish when they get older and you guys get to talk about it...they'll remember and if you're like, you'll have more senior moments. LOL! :D
