Julee's Mojo Challenge

I needed an anniversary card and I thought Julee's sketch would work perfectly. There is so much white on the card the picture isn't great. I stamped the images in Versamark, then colored them with shimmer chalks, stamped over them again with Versamark and embossed with Glassy Glaze Enamel.

The Sun is Back and it's NOT 30 Below !!!

I don't usually show many pictures of our life here in Barrow, but the scene yesterday was hilarious! We got the boys a dog sled last year for Christmas and they have been bugging Darryl to take them out. We thought out of the two village dogs we have that the big male,part wolf manly dog would pull forever. Nothin doin , he tucked his tail between his legs and laid in the snow when the harness was put on him. Our sweet little girl dog pulled her heart out ! At one point my husband fell in the snow and pretended he was hurt, thinking that Cuckoluck would miraculously pull him home (like in the movie 8 Below !) Ha,Ha, She stood there looking at him like "yea, right" until he got off the sled. Then she pulled the kids home .

Chrissy's Belli Challenge-Punch Animals !

This week Chrissy's Belli Challenge is to create a card using punches to make fun animals or bugs ! My first card came together quickly with the help of the Pond Pals set from Sweet N' Sassy Stamps . The second card was more of a challenge,I had it mostly done but I wanted to add more. I was blog surfing and I came across on Awesome site called Stamping with Markie's Mom . Her creations are fabulous so much detail ! One thing she does a lot is dots, so this is where I got the idea to finnish off my card with some dots. I had so much fun creating these little animals, now it's your turn to see what you can come up with ! Be sure to link your card to Chrissy's site to be entered in a chance to win some goodies !

Chrissy's Belli Challenge-Chipboard !

If you are up for a challenge head on over to Creating with Chrissy . Chrissy puts out the Belli challenge once a week and last week asked if anyone would like to demo the challenge. Of course I e-mailed her and said I would , and now I feel like such a idiot for getting my card up so late. It is only 8:00 in the arctic ! Anyway I decided to use my chipboard piece as a shaker card. The paper and sentiment are from S-U and the bitty butterflies are Paper Tray. Hope you enjoy and go check out everyone else's fabulous work on the challenge !

Thanks for the great challenge Allison, i'm so glad you started doing these !

Our Annual Valentine's Banquet

Tonight was our church's annual Valentine's banquet. I look forward to it for some time, I try to use my stamping abilities to do something nice for the tables. This year when I saw Paper Tray's release I new it would be perfect to center my whole theme around. This cookie box (yes, I made them) and decorated chocolates were what I came up with. Hope you have a lovely valentine's day too !

Kirsten's Sketch Challenge

I bought this 7 Gypsies paper eons ago and never used a scrap of it. It's awesome paper, it just never seemed to match what I was doing. But low and behold it did match the yellows on the penguin ! Kirsten over at Confessions of a Naptime Stamper is having a sketch challenge, that is where I got the layout for this card.
