Happy Monday!!!

This 6x6 Card is for Day 72 at 365 Cards.
The theme was to use music notes or sheet music on your card.

I used Basic Grey Archaic Paper 
Lisa's Altered Art 
The music paper is Somerset Art to Borrow from Take Ten Magazine
I took piano for 7 years as a kid, and wish I had not stopped.  I also wish to someday have a piano again.  It was so relaxing and enjoyable to play.
This card is for Challenge 39 at Cupcake Craft Challenges
(I used the sketch for Unscripted here, but I also used their sketch to make the card for them as well).  
This is a card for a boy or a man.  I feel these are the hardest cards to make.  There just aren't enough boy material to work with.
The paper is Basic Grey Archaic 
The house is Quickutz House Die
The little inchie in the corner is Lisa's Altered Art
This Card is for Fun Frilled.
A Card for A Friend.

The paper is Basic Grey and Urban Rhapsody by K and Company
I have included some flower hardware
The image is Ephemera I had in my stash
The sketch is mine.
I used my Tim Holtz Distress tool which I love!!!
This is for the Darkside Challenge Blog.
June is back giving some challenges again.
The theme is Roses
This kid is riding on Swine that Flew!!!  
Ring around the rosie, a ring would appear on those infected with bubonic plague
Pocket full of posies, the people would carry flowers in their pocket to hide the smell of death
Ashes to ashes, is either the sneezing, or the burning of the bodies
We all fall down, very self explanatory.
The Sketch for this card came from ISMAKI
I punched the heart and layered ribbon behind the hole (a technique I learned at Scrapyland).
The paper is DCWV
The sentiment is as well.

These two cards are from the sketch at Just Christmas and Birthday cards.
The Birthday card's image is Stampendous
The Christmas card's image is A Muse
Both I used my Crop A Dile and punched the eyelets for threading the Stampin' Up! Grosgrain Ribbon
The paper on the birthday card is DCWV, on the Christmas card is Basic Grey Figgy Pudding.
This card I am sending to a little girl for what is being called a Hug Flood.
Their theme today is put a dog on your card.
The paper is a bunch of craps I had on hand, so I am using this card for Opus Gluei as well, because their challenge was called "In Reach".  

And last but not least is Sitting Pretty
I used Lisa's altered art
A variety of paper on hand
And the the sentiment is DCWV.

See you later, I am off to the eye doctor.  It will be fun to drive home in Rush Hour Traffic with dilated eyes!!!  UGG!

  25. Finally able to visit... my system never manages to load the images from your blog. But today it did. I really like the work you do. Your colours are so different to mine (I'm a very minimalist unadventurous body) and the mix of vintage and detail is crazy. Love it.

    Love the header on your blog too. Looks like something from the Book of Kells???
