I made this victorian cone for the challenge on Splitcoast to make vicorian cones/party hats. It was easy and very fun~ just a few bumps in the learning curve. I did use double sided dp so it's pretty inside too. Mine is filled with old buttons and this image is attached to a wooden kabob stick and stuck in the middle. Thanks for another great challenge Marcy.

Our challenge today on the Crafty Secret forum on SCS was to make a card/project relating to "Going somewhere". Since I don't travel much these days ~too much fighting in the car on the way to the grocery store :)~ I thought I'd make a card to send a friend. I really like how this came together. I used the wonderful image booklets at Crafty secrets. Cards come together so quickly when the image is there and colored and you just really embellish a beautiful vintage image! :) The sentiment is from the Bug's Life set and the stamped cornices are from the Halloween Fun set~ all found here. I had an orphan piece of this great Wild asparagus dp that matched the image perfectly. Isn't it funny how some cards just come together effortlessly and others cause one to beat one's head on the desk and still end up with an ugly card. Oh the joys of crafting. Thanks for stopping in Darlene! It might be easier to just send you these messages by email since you are my sole blog recipient! :) Love you friend!

Here is the ATC made into a regular size card. :)

This week for the Crafty Secret challenge we made ATC (artist trading cards). I've never made one before and must say it was fun. They are 2 1/2 x 3 1/2. I made it into a card to send my sister whom I lovingly call "queen" even though I'm the oldest. :)

I just love kraft and red. I used the an image from the Crafty Secret Summertime journal notes book. The little note with the peas on it pulls out the side of the card and a message could be added. The wheel is SU's jumbo wheel called Daisy Dash. The punch was Martha stewarts butterfly punch. Thanks for looking. :)

This is another card I made using Primitive beginnings from Cornish Heritage Farms. The DP is Basic Gray Mellow. I used Ranger distress inks. These sets are large and have a great variety of sentiments.

This weekend I moved my craft area to another spot in our house~ this organizing really gets me in the mood to stamp. :)

I'm in love with this new set from Cornish Heritage Farms. It is called Primitive Beginnings. I used Ranger distress ink and poped the house to give some depth. The set is from The Rummage Bin Co.
