Isn’t that dress perfect for a party?  I’m going to enter this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog where this week the theme is Anything Goes!  I don’t very often play with Distress Inks likes this, but I must say that I enjoyed it! I think I’m going to continue mixing (literally and figuratively speaking – ha!) things up here and there. Change is good sometimes, no?

It’s sometimes hard to photograph gold, so please bear with me on this photo.  All of that totally blinged out gold is courtesy of DCWV gilded paper stack + vellum pack.  Two gorgeous packs of paper for a wonderful price.  Talk about making a ton of ready made cards.

Honor Society Challenge…Wild and Free

Hello It’s Tyra and today I will share some of what I made with my latest Clique Kits  Kit Haul . The theme is “Wild and Free” and so I thought I would create a few cards and add in a few feathers here and there.  Here goes!9457536_orig Happy Days Card Clique Kits August Release Just Tyra

For you card makers out there, this kit is packed with a ton of goodness to create cards to your heart’s desire.  Even the packaging is beautiful.  I created the middle feather from packaging used for the wood hearts.

In the second card I reused the gold polka dot washi tape from some of the embellishment packaging for my card.

Another Camera Card

Hey I’m back with another entry into Moxie Fab World’s Clicking Camera Challenge.  This is a card I created using Clique Kits July release.  I love using ready-made embellishments and leftover paper to create a quick card:




Speaking of  smiling for the camera, I’m currently scoping out my house for an alternate spot to take photos, year around (I’m thinking about you, winter).   Here is that same card, in a different light:


I’m not quite sure about this location, but whatever I choose, I realize I would need to take all my photos on the weekends, since I’m not home until late afternoons during the week.  The last time I took photos at home on the weekend, there were toys flying everywhere, food cooking, clothes waiting to be dried and a grocery list needing attention.  So I’m choosing between nighttime/ quiet & peaceful /”studio” light  VERSUS daytime /lovely but chaotic family noise/natural light.  And then there’s the return of glorious football (Yes I love watching football).   Umm, we will see.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
