December Card Chain Challenge Card

 Hello it's time for the December CCC this month I used every single suggestion from the list below. I first tried thinking of how I could fit all the criteria into a Christmas Card but since I was stumped I decided to just do an any day card. It was a lot of fun and I think I'll try it again with some Christmas colours and images. If you would like to check out the challenge for yourself please go here. The supplies I used are from Stampin Up!.

 If you have any questions I'm happy to answer them. 
Have a wonderful day!
Thanks, Jutta

November splendor and CCC Card

November has arrived and so has some more snow. 
I'm loving the reflection in the lake, this is a rare sighting as we usually see the
 lake freeze over before the first snow. 
Once again I am playing along at Card Chain Challenge Blog with a card for Tina in Slovenia this month. 
I have followed along with most of the prompts and had a lot of fun 
using the sweet Hippo Happiness bundle from Stampin' Up!.

Autumn -October CCC Card

 Hello and welcome to another Card Chain Challenge share. For this one I tried to use as many of the options as possible. 

I separated the Autumn of this retired Quietfire Design stamp used it on the outside as a stand alone sentiment and placed the remainder of the quote on the inside. I had fun doing an Iris fold inside, actually behind the maple leaf. This is a great way to use up all those little bits of scrapbooking paper as the strips are only 1/2" wide.

Thanks for stopping by,

Free as a Bird -September 2020 CCC

Welcome, just a few more days and it will officially be Autumn. I love this time of year when the evenings are cooler and I can freely spend time with my craft supplies making cards, knitting and such. Today I have another Card Chain Challenge card to share that is on it's way to Dee via the UK as I write this.

    For this card I used Stampin' Up! Free as a Bird stamp set. 
I tried to follow the suggested colour pallet and friendship theme.

Happy creating until next time!

Christmas Kickstart Challenge #28

How clever is this Dotty Jo has started a monthly Christmas Kickstart Challenge for all the details go here. A great way to get all your cards made ahead of time. My take on the red theme for February is a traditional red, green and gold card. It features a lovely sentiment and die design from Quietfire Design.

Valentine's Day Cards

Oops I guess it would help if I actually pressed publish, oh well better late than never. ;)
A post I was reading a few weeks ago now reminded me of Valentine's Day back in elementary school. Every year we would make a something such as a giant decorated heart to hang on our desk. Every one including the teacher exchanged Valentines. It was a lot of fun and the best part back then was that no one was left out! I have been so lucky to have a caring family and awesome group of friends that have helped me out during  the last few years that I decided every one needed a card. 
Thanks every one I really appreciate every kindness more than words can convey!
