I used my new set, Time Well Spent, and created this card which fit the SCS challenge. It was the limited supply challenge LSC142. We were to limit our layers, only use 2-3 stamps including sentiment, only use one embellishment...and this was my result. I think it came out very Valentine looking, especially if you think Love when you read the sentiment!

Stampin Up decided to give all demonstrators a free stamp set this month, mine came yesterday. It's called Time Well Spent. It will be a Level 3 Hostess Set in the next catalog. Lots of stamps, all flowers and two sentiments! I made this card using the papers on my table from this weeks Color Challenge on SCS. Pomegranate and Kraft...I added black and here it is! I used Pomegranate Wide Satin Ribbon and narrow black satin ribbon, plus my glitter pens for some color and shine...:)

This was the SU Color Challenge CC140. I added black to the Kraft and Pomegranate colors of the challenge. It was fun to make...I used a Maple Leaf Punch to do the leaves behind the flower, and lots of layers and brads...fun! The hardest part was the satin ribbon I tied it a dozen times...the picture was hard to take as well...I wanted those stickles to shine, so I chose not the best pic...I need to study photo taking a bit more!

We felt bad MommaKat had to live outdoors...so we found her a new owner! They came and picked her up on Saturday.... All were delighted with the new situation, she loved her new place in Sandy, playing with their dog and it was working well. Until today we found MommaKat's hiding place for her kittens! Who knew? We certainly didn't. Luckily MommaKat has great new owners who were happy and excited to be brought the new kittens so Momma can finish raising them. Already the kittens have been spoken for and new owners are lining up...so we were happy for the kittens, they are now warm and safe. We felt bad we couldn't keep them, but allergies are so severe it just was not possible. But I thought you'd like to see pictures of the pretty kitties...and MommaKat...

This card uses Dashing SU Design Paper. Also shimmer white, Real Red and Old Olive. I made it for today's SCS Card Sketch Challenge SC149. I like how it turned out, I used my new Inkadinkado stamp with the oval and pretty swirls, the bird is from SU's It's Snow Time and the pine branch from SU's Lovely as a Tree. I used markers to ink them up and had a great time putting it all together. The swirl clip and brads are silver, the ribbon is white chiffon and SU's red grosgrain. I am enjoying doing the Christmas Cards. I still haven't found one I want to mass produce yet though...hmmn, I better get busy. :)

Here's my Horizontal Pocket Card for today's Technique's SCS challenge TLC141. I used Stampin Up Stamps It's Snow Time and Glad Tidings. SU Old Olive Real Red, Very Vanilla Card Stock. Real Read and Old Olive Ink, along with Stazon Jet Black. The Ribbon is SU wide Grosgrain ribbon, which I LOVE! Also SU corner punch. I liked the way it turned out...had a bit of trouble with the glitter pen smearing, so I'm not sure I'd use that again...but it does add a nice shine. I also used a white gel pen to color in the snow areas. I like the way that you can see the sentiment on the insert, but that there is plenty of "hidden" room to write under it.
