These were done by special request from a neighbor/friend at our craft fair. tfl

CDAC Swap 10 Vintage Print ATC Collage

Just wanted to share a pic of a collage I made to hang on the wall in my craft room. These ATCs are from a CDAC Vintage Print swap #10. Love these all so much, want to see them all the time! Thanks, fellow crafters, for all your hard work! My ATC is the bottom left one. tfl

Craft Fair Display

Just thought I'd share a picture of my craft fair display board that our friend and neighbor made for me. It was just perfect. I also had 2 tables of other cards and papercrafts which I forgot to get a pic of. tfl

Bugaboo Christmas Cheers

This card is for a photo inspiration challenge at Bugaboo Stamps. I just love their digital stamps! Had a table at a craft fair and the Bugaboo images were the most popular of all!

Happy Halloween

Here's a little Halloween card I made...not one of my favorite cards, but it is appropriate for today. tfl

CAS142 Dentist Card

This card is for Splitcoaststampers' Clean and Simple Challenge - CAS142 - color challenge - Ivory, Chocolate, Red. I just love this picture. Tomorrow I am going to the dentist, and think he'll get a kick out of this card. The inside is stamped with a "Smile" card with little daisies around it. tfl

Back to Summer

Although it feels anything but summer-like here right now, a neighbor asked me to make some "seaside" cards, so here is one of them. I used a digital stamp from Shelly's Images. The sketch is from a sketch challenge - SSS132 - at The Sweet Stop. tfl

Sweet Baby Bud SSS37

This card is for a sketch challenge - SSS37 - at The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge Blog. I used one of my favorite digi stamps for baby cards from Baby Bud Designs. Inside says "A Sweet New Blossom of Humanity". tfl

Looking through the Window TLC346

This card is for today's Splitcoaststampers' Technique Lovers Challenge - TLC346 - Stack up the Background. I used leaves in 2 layers, then flowers, then the screen on top, which I then heat embossed with detail silver embossing powder. Made a little window with sill, which I distressed to look like wood, then a little lace curtain on top. tfl
