Time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash and it's Under the Weather so there are a couple of choices for your project, as the title says Weather could be rain, snow, hurricane lots of choices or you could make a Get Well project, which is what I ended up making. Since I had a lighthouse diecut card front and the distress oxide background in a project holder (from last summer at the cottage) I figured it would make a good masculine get well card.

Here we are on the 15th of March with a new challenge at A Tiny Craft (ATC) Challenge ~~ Masculine. I'm finding masculine atcs are as much trouble as full sized cards but after a few mind changes I finally settled on a NBUS not only one but two for my ATCs. To join in the fun (and give me lots of ideas for anything masculine) you can make cards, 2 1/2 X 3 1/2 inch rectangle used vertical or horizontal or you can make 2 1/2 inch coins. Here is my offering for the challenge I hope it inspires you.
Spring is in the Air at Shopping Our Stash, but it certainly is not in the air here in South Western Ontario we just had three days of snow-showers, not much accumulation but it was like the storm was circling the city, clear for a bit then white-outs. At least it gave me some crafting time and this is what I made for the challenge. For the challenge we want to see something with Wings on your project, birds, butterflies, bees, dragonflies lots of choices. My choice was a Hummingbird.

When I saw the challenge at Color Hues I immediately thought St. Patrick's Day and Fluffles. The two colours to use are Green and Gold. I have worked on my card off and on for almost a week, life really gets in the way of crafting sometimes. Enough said, so here is my finished card.

I have two Holiday Narwhals for you today. I love to enter the Jingle Belles Christmas challenge and I have been a little slack the last two challenges, not that I didn't have ideas just no time to execute them. The challenge is Oh Christmas Stencil, Oh Christmas Stencil, well I don't have much in the line of Christmas Stencils and I am a "newbie" at stencils so don't look too close. Since I planned on using my Christmas/Holiday narwal stamp and die I used a "bubbles" stencil fit the 5 1/2 square perfectly.

Hello fellow crafters, it's time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash and the theme is Full Metal Jacket.....use something metal on your project, metallic cardstock, a charm, wet embossing with one of the metal embossing powders. I went with the easy one, making a metal car.
I haven't used this die set in a long time and I quite often check to see when I used it last by going through my blog and I have never blogged a card made with this set, but I'm sure I have made one or perhaps I've only cut the images. The patterned paper is from Dollarama bought probably 5 years ago, the 12 X 12 pad was all B&W. The car and sentiment were cut twice from black heavy cardstock and once in gold posterboard and glued together for dimension. The card is a 5 1/2 inch square card. I thought it looked a little blah so I added as thin gold frame.
Close up angled picture to show how the image is elevated.
Finally I finished the inside with a "old" sentiment and a few scraps of the paper.
I am entering this in:
AAA Birthday ~~ Game #34 Pattern.
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out the MAIN BLOG to see what the rest of the team have done with the theme.
