Today has been a fabulous day as far as crafting goes. I have been able to make a few things and have throughly enjoyed myself. I didn't have Miss V and hubby hasn't been home either. That so seldom happens in this household and I have taken full advantage of it. I should be cleaning.
Everything I used in the way of Designer Papers and embellishments are things that are sooooo old I have no idea who they are by. Maybe not being able to buy new craft supplies right now is a good thing. It is making me use things that I have been stroking and saving for... who knows what! LOL
First up today is an image by House Mouse... love those little critters....can't seem to get enough of them and thank you dear friend for stamping them up and swapping with me... You know who you are. You will never know how much I appreciate your kindness.
I found these papers in my stash that appealed to me today. You can't see the true colors but they are old olive with a lighter olive dot. I have pared them with burgundy ribbon, it turned out well. I am not sure why the colors appealed to me today. They are not my normal color scheme. Image was colored with copic markers and added stickles to the wings of the dragon fly. "Hang in there" sentiment is handwritten...something else I don't do very often.. Inside sentiment is by Inkadinkado

This Match Book card is a first for me. I had so much fun making it. All the paper used on this is from my scrapbox. Border punch is Martha Stewart. Image...Magnolia... notice I used a smaller fairy to cover the frog she is orginally holding. Used shimmer paints from SU on her wings.

Another first for me is a T-Slide Pop-UP Card. Love the card, but as usual I did mine backwards, however it is ok by me to have it open on the opposite side than the instructions say. LOL... I do everything backwards, even look at magazines from back to front. LOL ???
Again papers are very old... I found them in my box rather dog-eared, one of them is 7 gypsies. Not good for scrapbooking anymore but great for making cards. Image is Imaginisce, inside sentiment--Stampendous, ink for image is Martha Stewart...something red (name is worn off)...
This fit the following challenges:

Since I was having a love affair with this paper today, I thought I might as well finish using what I had left so I made a note pad holder using the rest. Ribbon is from my stash along with the gems and metal findings that I have glued around the gems. Leaves are punched from punch bunch punch, scored with a embossing tool and then inked to give dimension. Flowers are Michaels bridal table confetti that I have pinched at the tips. Wish you could see this color combo IRL... I love it. Who knows it might become my next favorite color scheme...
This fits the following challenges:
