The first card is a happy harvest card that I made for a rather thoughtful person on the PTI Forum...I used Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel on the basket which gave it a textured look, which I thought was perfect for the basket image.
The second set of photographs are of a card I made for both Bethie J's 2nd challenge (we could use the cloud dies from Up, Up & Away) and PTI's Princess Cheryl's challenge of creating a card with no sentiment or wording on the front of the card. I used liquid applique on the clouds that I die cut and then sprinkled a little bit of glitter on them while the liquid was still warm. The background paper was made with a Blueberry Sky base which I swirled Fresh Snow ink on a Q-tip to make background clouds.
Thanks to both lovely ladies for great challenges and getting me to ink up a set that I had not had a chance to use!

Bethie over on PTI's Forum came up with a great idea of a weekly challenge using one of the 3 designated PTI stamp sets...each week the stamps change. This week we could use Wreath for all Seasons, Tiny Treats:Halloween or Vintage Picnic. My 6 1/2 year old son (we call him Buddy) and I made hot sauce and used TT:Halloween to make the labels. We also used PTI's Tiny Alphabet to personalize them. The images were stamped on PTI's adhesive paper and then punched out. We also used a bit of Japanese Washi tape to wrap around the bottle. Not only did the bottle look great but the hot sauce tasted really good too!

Hello, hello all...I know it's been a really long time...it's been a super busy summer and I haven't had much time for crafting. But here are some pictures ofwhat we have been doing...lots of time at the beach, did my first triathlon, made lots of hot sauce with Buddy and more time at the beach. I was able to do some crafting...not very much, but here are a few cards. I will post in more detail about the hot sauce...it was a great project for me and my 6 year old hot sauce lovin' son!
