Sending this card out to blogland today to thank EVERYONE for all of their thoughts and prayers as we move on to the next journey in our crazy life!  The moving boxes are packed, the truck is full and we are on our way to being homeowners again!  yippee!!  We can hardly wait!  I really appreciate everyone’s help and thoughts and good wishes as we make this move.  Hopefully this one will be a lasting one!

 

 

A simple silhouette card, but I love how it came out.  I used a brayer for the background with some ink and let it dry.  Then stamped the silhouette images in chocolate ink on top.  Cut it down to card size, matted and mounted it and viola! a card!  I added a fancier bow in the corner with the punched tag.

 

Hoping all of you are happy and well – will keep you posted in the next few weeks about the move and settling in!

Thanks again for stopping in!

Here Comes The Bride June 20, 2012

Filed under: C.C. Designs,Cuttlebug,Spellbinders — anotherkatecreation @ 1:11 am

What would June be if I didn’t pop in with a bridal card? 🙂

Here is my take on a soft bridal card full of white, pearls, and roses.  I had fun coloring this bride and also figuring out the cutting of the card.  I knew I wanted to do a circle with her on the inside and pearls all around.

The front of the card with a soft sentiment and more pearls.

The inside of the card with the stamp and a sentiment and a wish!

Some layers and texture add to the details on the front of the card.  I just love this beautiful bride stamp – may have to go and make some more cards with her just to play!

So there you go – June with a bridal card 🙂

I’ll be back again next week, although it will probably be a pretyped post since I will be in the middle of the big move!  We are getting excited!! 🙂  The next few days I will be packing up my “craft workshop” or shall I say, what I have out in crafts.  It is always hard for me to do – I have to say I liked when the movers did it a lot better!  But I keep focused on the end prize and I will be up and running again real soon!!

Take care – thanks for stopping by!

A Teacher Cares June 13, 2012

Filed under: Thank You,Uncategorized — anotherkatecreation @ 1:00 am

So, sorry it has been almost a month since my last post…… life has a way of taking you out of the crafting game every so often and this happens to be one of those times again!  You see, as many of you may know, we are in the midst of moving AGAIN.  Yep, that’s right – this is not an old blog post you are rereading, we are on the move again this summer!

My hubby took a new job outside of Philly last November and we have been patiently waiting for school to end for the kiddos and also to search for the place where “we want to settle down”.  Low and behold, we are heading right back to our little ol’ town that we were in before we moved to California. 🙂

We are happy about the move and excited to get settled into a new house with room for everyone and our ‘stuff’ too!  The kids keep saying it is going to be like Christmas to open all of their boxes of stuff that they haven’t seen for a year and a half!  I keep thinking we are going to have to have one BIG garage sale for all of the things that they don’t want/have outgrown over that time! Ha!  Either way is fine with me!

In the midst of everything, my kiddos have finished school here and are really going to miss their teachers and all of the hard-working staff at the schools they were at.  It really has been a great school year and I hope we will have this luck for years to come!  Everyone did SO well in school and liked their teachers, made great friends, and learned a lot.  But the year must end and so, we thank the teachers for all of their hard work and effort they put in to teaching our kids each and every day.

Here is card I made a while back for a submission call that didn’t make it so I thought I’d share here:

A fun card with rainbows, letters and pencils and a very true and special sentiment.  Teachers are a special breed and we all owe them a great deal more than they get.  I know this year especially, I owe a lot to the wonderful teachers my children had.  So thank you Mrs. Rush, Mrs. Hand, and Mrs. Rosini for the wonderful things you taught my kids this year.  We will always remember this year in Danville!
