Are You Ready for Some Football and Cards?

I love Sundays and football! The Patriots play later tonite so I am going to squeeze in some more card-making. I have been on a roll this week! I have several cards to share today.
First up- 2 cards using stamps from Sugar Pea Designs-- love these stamps!

Family friend Doug was so wonderful making the surprise proposal dinner party for Cori and Sani a joyful event. I wanted to thank him for all he did- so I created a card with a great pizza chef- perfect for Doug.

I wanted to play along with the sketch from Sugar Pea Designs so  I colored up this feisty fiesta man! The red stripes are embossing paste mixed with glitter and distress ink- very eye catching in person. My coloring looks horrible in the picture- I promise the pants look much better in real life! LOL

A super simple card made with the flip dies by Sizzix-for The Male Room:

Try Stampin' on Tuesday has a sketch and a theme-so I joined in on the fun for the next card.
And I have 2 cards for Operation Write Home challenges.
A fabulous sketch:
 I used distress inks on water color paper and stamped stars in white pigment ink- then cut the paper into the strips. I colored the ribbon with a copic marker. All of the colors blend nicely-the OWH safe DCWV  glitter paper goes well but photographed an odd shade of blue. I love the different textures to this card.
The OWH mid-month throw down challenge is to create a winter love card.
 Mama Elephant stamps- on a distress ink and water droplets background and some felt for snow drifts. Brrr- I can feel the snow in the air!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my cards!


  1. Wow, Diane, you have been very busy in your craft room making some fantastic cards. These are all so nice. The chef will be thrilled to receive this card you made just for him. Your other cards are so very special and delightful.
    Go Pats! tonight. Enjoy the week ahead.

  2. HI Diane!!! Thank you so much for your sweet comments on ABNH! I can't believe you have a blog and I didn't know about it!!!! I need you to e-mail me when you have time. My sister and I were just talking about you and we want to get together with you and Kelly reallllly soon. T just got married and her new husband is begging her to get to scrapbooking/stamping again. Her wish was so see "the girls" again. It's mine too. I miss you so much!!!!! You can email me from my blog

  4. Hi Diane! Each of these cards is wonderful but, focusing on the OWH Winter Love card--it's so beautiful!! I hope lots of people click on the thumbnail because that tiny picture doesn't do it justice! Serene, Christmassy, love the felt "snow". It reminds me of putting up my Christmas village!
