Peace on Earth for Team Favorites

***Affiliate Links used when possible at no charge to you***

I guess it won't surprise you that my favorite this month features one of Nola's adorable cats!  I love the expression on this kitty's face.  Did he and the mouse knock over the Christmas tree?  The mouse looks just as guilty to me, but the kitty is wearing the evidence!  

Also, the Christmas cookies die set is super versatile.  The shapes can be used for any type of cookie, plus the cutouts can be used as embellishments.  I used the snowflake cut out on this card.  :)

Watercolor Wednesday - Water Tips

This week, for Watercolor Wednesday at SCS, we are painting bodies of water.  At SCS the challenges are free, and members even have their own gallery to feature art projects!  I hope to see you there!  

I used the beautiful Cattails & Geese Slimline stamp set by IO.  This is a two-piece stamp, allowing lots of variations for greater creativity. Today, I chose to use just the ducks.  

The sentiment is from the Chili Peper Sayings, which is an adorable set that pairs beautifully with the Chili Pepper die.  This little sentiment set is a great value that can be paired with the die or stand-alone!

Beautiful Patterned Paper - Product Focus

***Affiliate links are used at no charge to you, thanks so much!***

This week, the IO Team is focusing on Patterned Paper. IO has some gorgeous paper packs! All of the paper packs are luxurious with a slight sheen!

This mushroom paper from the Forest Floor paper pack is so pretty; I wanted to feature as much of it as possible. The banner (Stitched Tag) is cut from the same paper pack. The background was cut with the Crazy Stitched Set. You will see me use this layer quite often in my cardmaking. I love the size, which allows a nice base border around it. The die is wider than most layering dies, which keeps it from warping! I love it! The sentiment is from the So Mush stamp set.  For the sentiments, I used the Oval Labels and Stitched Tag #5.  I shortened the banner from Stitched Tag #5 by placing one end back in the die.  


Stop by here to see the IO line of Patterned Papers!

Frankly, I am Shocked!

Hello!  It's Theme Day at IO, and frankly, I am shocked it's Monday already!  Hehe.  When I saw this fun sentiment from Jeanne's Monster Sayings set, I couldn't wait to make a Frankie!  I had fun using elements from the Monster Face set to create my Frank.  For his hair, I used the Edges 1 Die set.  I like Edges 1 and  Edges 2 not just for monsters but for all kinds of project edges!  I also used my most often used die set for sentiments, Rounded Rectangle Layers 



Stop by the Impression Obsession blog for a list of Halloween projects by participating DT members.

It's my 12th-year blog anniversary today!

Autumn Greetings - Sept IO Red Rubber Limited Edition Set Hop

***Affiliate links used when possible at no charge to you!***

Welcome to Day 1 of the September HOP!  

The September Limited Edition Red Rubber set overflows with Fall Goodness.  

I was in a different kind of mood when I created today's cards.  I wasn't feeling the warm orange/red Fall tradition!  

Here is what I used:


I was not in an orange mood, so I decided to go blue!  Now, I need to find someone who would like to receive blue pumpkins for Thanksgiving!  :)  

Here is what I used:
