Last minute cards


Sharing some cards I made for the family. These will be hand delivered. I made this first one using Mercy's Tuesday sketch and a digi image from Sweet N Sassy stamps. I used some snowflakes for the Digital Tuesday challenge and OCC. It also fits the Dare U 2 digi stamp "last minute cards" as it's almost last minute for the challenge too.
This one was made using the Sketch Saturday sketch. I used a Sarah Kay stamped image that I colored with pencils and markers.



Thanks for looking and have a Merry Christmas! I'm off to have dinner and exchange gifts with my hubby!

What better to remind us of the CHRISTMAS season than the shephard boy?

Treat box

I'm back tonight to share a little treat box I made. I'm making these for my Sunday School class. I will hang them on a water bottle and fill with drink mixes. I also made this with the Our Creative Corner challenge in mind. I'll be making several of these and they won't all be the same, so hopefully I'll be back to share more before the weekend is out.

One card, four challenges

I'm still trying to squeeze in a few cards and challenges here before Christmas. This one was made to fit four challenges. First I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers as my layout. The colors were inspired by Stampin for the weekend's color challenge- blue and brown. The Stamp Something challenge is for winter wonderland and Crazy4challenges is looking for snow or snowflakes. When I think of winter wonderland, I think of everything glistening so I added some stickles to my snowflakes. Here it is:

Quick and easy

This is a fairly quick and easy card. It had to be for me to make the Mojo Monday deadline for sketch 116. Here I am at the last minute again, due to all the holiday shopping and decorating. I used a digi stamp from Whimsie Doodles and my nestabilities to cut the circles. I used Bo Bunny St. Nick paper and deliberatly chose to cut those Santas into the circles so they would peek out from the sentiment. This digi stamp is one of those "must haves" the minute I saw it. I've got a nephew and a friend who says the magic of Christmas is gone as an adult that this will be perfect for. I'm also using this card for the Dare U to Digi Stamp challenge to use red, green, and a neutral.

I've pretty much shared the details of the card. Just cut and paste. I could have done some more embellishing on the circles but I like it the way it is. The paper itself add a lot. Thanks for looking.

Back to the blog

Hi blog readers and followers. Sorry for my lapse in posting. I have not been participating in any challenges or blogging since the last post because I have worked on a 62 page family history scrapbook for my dad's 70th birthday. It took all of my spare time and I had to let other things go. It was worth it though. We had a party last night and all the family and friends really enjoyed looking at the book.

I did get a chance to participate in some challenges this week. I used them to make birthday cards for my mom and dad. Their birthdays are two days apart.

The first one was for my Mom and uses the Friday Sketchers sketch, a charm that fits the Simon Says challenge, and red posies that inspired my color scheme for the Flourishes Floral Finesse challenge.




Stamp: Posies (Flourishes)
Paper: K and Co.; Bazzill
Tools: Square punch
Accents: Brads, flowers, charm



My second card is for the sketch challenge over at StampTV. I rotated the sketch.

Thanks for looking. I hope to be working like a mad woman on Christmas projects now that the birthday is behind me. I'll pop in and post those.
