Boss’ Day for a Nurse


Nurse Trudie

I made this card for the nurses in a doctor’s office to give to their boss for Boss’ Day (who is a nurse.) I used the free image from Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps to make a piece of paper from a notepad.
Inside says:
Well, if we don’t get off early
we hope you do!
Happy Boss’ Day!

Yo Ho Ho Happy Halloween


Deedee’s Digis is sponsoring the Clear it Out Challenge which is Halloween (or use Black and Orange). I went with the Halloween theme but in the end used black and orange only so I did both without even trying! This card is for one of the guys at work to give his mom as they are big Basset Hound lovers so I was super excited when I saw this image.

Yo Ho Ho

In my stash I found the dog bone paper clip and chest charm which I thought was perfect. The paper is also YEARS old so the only thing new and modern on this card is the image! I used Tuesday Morning Sketches #271 as my inspiration.


1) October Card Challenge @ – Favorites Category – used Tuesday Morning Sketches #271

2) Clear it Out Challenge – Halloween (or use orange and black)

3) Use Your Stuff #158 – Pet / Animal challenge. Not one of our dogs but there is a guy at work that has a standing order of Basset Hound cards for his mom.

Love the Colors of Autumn


Deedee’s Digis is sponsoring Sister Act card Challenge that starts today and runs till Oct 16th. The theme is anything goes so come play with us!

Oh I love the colors of Autumn….my house is decorated in them!! So I am loving all the challenges out there right now that let me play with orange, brown, rust, and gold. So I decided to make an autumn card to feature Deedee’s Digis Autumn Blessing Image.

Gourd Vase


I left the inside blank because it could not only be used for a Thanksgiving card but it could be a Thinking of You card or a Sympathy card.


1) Sister Act Card Challenge #78 – Anything Goes

2) Use your Stuff Challenge #156 – Fall. The 2 patterned papers are from my scrap drawers. That creamy peach background paper is at least 10 years old and not made anymore.

As you can see I combine 2 of the digis in this set, Happy Jacks,  and LOVE how it turned out!! I have a standing order for Beagles and Basset Hound cards so I was soooo happy to see this image and the image she released this passed weekend Yo Ho Ho…you will be seeing that soon. I went with colors that the card challenge at required, purple, black, green and orange, and I liked this paper when I put it all together. I really like the larger area the sketch at Mojo Monday called for so I used that sketch as my inspiration.
