Merry Christmas!

  So I figured out a way to post a picture a different way, I am so not impressed with this whole new look of BLOGGER, it takes forever to upload a picture, I got a little frustrated and so I didn't post at all! Now I am posting the picture off my ipod, save it, and then type up a post, grrrrrr! Anyway, you can read all about this card HERE. Have a great day!

Inspired by Judy

The first thing I did this morning was go to my craft room and make a card, forget about the mess in the house , the laundry and what not.....I had to make card, lol! The picture doesn't do this card justice, in real life the two pinks are a good match. My inspiration came from Judy Kennedy, she doesn't have a blog but her cards are on display at SGD, she is also a designer and every time her works blows me away! A sizzix embossing folder, sentiment from Just Rite, IO die, Memory Box die, Cheery Lynn leave, MS leaves, pearls and goosebumps, a long list of supplies and so much fun.

Have a great day, Anja

Craft a Scene.....Trees!

Good morning! A new month is here, so it's time for a new challenge over at CRAFT A SCENE! This month our challenge is trees, please come and play with us and show us some trees! Before you know it, the beautiful fall colours will come.

For my card I started with a sponged background. First I made the hills at the bottom, using Memento black and london fog. The sun is sponged on with Tim Holtz squeezed lemonade and I have tried to put some of that colour around it. The sky is done with Tim Holtz weathered wood, going lighter towards the hills. In the right bottom corner I have added some scrubs, it is done with the top of a Stampscapes stamp, maple trio small, with pine needles and some black ink. The big tree is also a Stampscapes stamp, SC 226 E twisting oak and the bird is SC 162 A, solo duck. Borderpunch from Martha Stewart and a sentiment from Hero arts.
