Hello to my new Members and two Cards for several Challenges

I have neglected my new members - so sorry - mainly because I was so busy lately and then I went on vacation. Time to change this... I want to welcome in the order of joining


I linked all the blogs I found - amazing creativity in all of them - go and visit and tell them
 you came form me ;)
Thanks for joining my blog, Ladies and here is your welcome picture:


This is a glass sculpture by Karen LaMonte, an American artist, who now lives in the Czech Republic. I took this picture of her work (Evening dress with shawl)  in the Corning Museum of glass - we visited on my recent trip to upstate New York. I hope you like it. I f you are ever in that area - I can highly recommend that museum - we spent 5 hours there and did not see everything - just fantastic! I'll have to go back there one day...


But now back to card making. I had to go up into my card room and make a few cards - card withdrawal....haha...
This card I made for the Little Tangles challenge - peek-a-boo acetate cards and combined it with the Retrosketches sketch and colors from Color Throwdown


The stamps are by Neat and Tangled, of course. The set is called Party dots. I die cut  the round window with Spellbinders nestabilities, die cut the green frame around it. Glued acetate on the back and stamped the sentiment on the acetate.


Added the sequins to make it into a shaker card and the gold thread and paper candi.

         




My second card I made for Taheeras Cure for the Monday Blues challenge.



Since Fathers Day is coming and the inspiration pic had a masculine vibe, I turned it into a Fathers Day card. The Tools are by Technique Tuesday. I heat embossed them in silver and fuzzy cut them. T also added grey Copic marker. The banner is from Neat and Tangled - still had that set laying around and the sentiment is Studio G. 


I cut a strip of cork, added foam tape to the tools and mounted everything onto embossed card stock - I choose that folder to mimic the pegboard in the inspiration picture, see below. 


I am also linking this card with the Snippets Playground - lots of snippets here.....
and Addicted to CAS - texture

Have a great day and thanks for visiting!
