Happy Thanksgiving

Its that time of year when we all reflect on what we are thankful for. Here's a fun card to celebrate the day. (although I don't think the turkey is too thankful its Thanksgiving)
I used oval Nesties, a flower punch for the feet, Moxie paper, Worldwin cardstock and inked the edges for a more 3D look.
Enjoy your day with family and friends.

Kitty Surprize

My husband called the store last night while I was teaching class and I was left the message of it was a 'man emergency'. He found 4 kittens by our deck. He said when I called their eyes were barely opened. So I fretted they'd never make it without a mama.
By the time I got home the number grew to 5 and I was happily suprized to see they were well past weaning. (some of their eyes are icky so maybe he thought they just opened??) So I cleaned up all the eyes and gave them lovings and food and made a warm spot out on deck for them. They are extremely tame so waiting to see if they were just dropped off, if the mama is still near or if wandered down from a neighbors house. In the meantime, I'll treasure their presense. I've been told NO as I have 3 cats now but I can be creatively pursuasive. =)
Speaking a animals in need................our Paws for a Cause were dropped off at the store yesterday. So you can once again buy a paw ornament for your tree and the money goes to help the EC animal shelter.

Snow is a long ways off with the unusually warm weather we are having. But I am trying to use up some left over snowflake stickers we had from our last Card Marathon. I couldn't find any paper in the Christmas section to match the stickers so I wandered the store til I found some. With over 10,000 patterned papers to choose from under one roof...........its never that hard to find something.
Supplies: Reminisce stickers, MS gooey punch, Coredinations CS, Snowflake embossing folder, Daisy Bucket papers, May Art ribbon, Picture This diecut title and gemstones.

White Bliss

I love the monochromatic cards. This is using metallic cardstock. I used 2 different Cuttlebug embossing folders, Cuttlebug concentric heart die and then various sizes of daisy punches. The pearl accents add the final touch. All these supplies can be found at Picture This.

I accented with May Arts ribbon and Hero Arts black gems. A Fiskars border punch was used on the black strip.

Got Coffee?

I was working on getting odds and ends cleaned up from previous classes over the weekend. I just added the Changito monkey to this card front to complete it. Copics were used for all my coloring over the weekend. I tried taking a close-up of the coffee mugs but still can't see very well. I used the crystal laquer on the cups to make them shiny. Papers are Basic Grey. Stamp is Stampendous.
