Hello friend


My last few weeks have been CRAZY with some traveling and many activities, so this evening, I was happy to find some time to play in my craft room!  I realized that the month is almost over and I had not played with my FTHS image yet, so I printed it and created this card...



I'm entering this card into the FREE Stamp of the Month April Challenge (must use Hamlet Pigwit Being Shy) and the i {heart} Card Sketches with a tWiSt 106 Challenge both over at From the Heart Stamps.  My DP is Lost and Found Two "Rosy" and the embossing folder is Cuttlebug Spots and Dots. 

Here's the sketch... (the twist is a 2 word sentiment)


Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Notes for hubby


My husband is a pastor and I've made him cards to send "from his desk" but he now wants to send a handmade card to each visitor that comes to our church, so I'll be making lots more for him.  Doodle Pantry's "Assemble Together" set makes it quick and easy to make several at a time.  For these, I used the colored image, added the sentiment, cut them with Spellbinders, added some coordinating paper and I was good to go. 

Check them out...


As I said, my image and sentiment are Doodle Pantry's Assemble Together.
The images were cut out with Spellbinders Standard Circles, Labels Three, and Large and Small Labels.  My DP is MME Lost & Found Two "Sunshine."  I made 6 all together today...

In deepest sympathy - TMS #297


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

I've updated this post to show you 2 cards.  The mailman was slow so I didn't have the stamps from the first card in time for my Tuesday post, so here it is...



This card is the least enjoyable card to make: a sympathy card.  But this kind of card is so necessary and can mean more to a friend than the 'fun' kind of card.  This one is pretty simple and I turned the sketch...



Here is our sketch for the week... 





This week's sponsor is DRS Designs.




My DP is Paper Studio and my image is Calla Lily Sympathy Frame from DRS Designs.

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

I've got a fun card for you today...


I think this little guy is so cute!  My kids are growing up very quickly, and while I truly am thankful for and am enjoying my 4 teenagers, I sometimes find myself missing the days of riding horsey and all that other fun kid stuff!  
My DP is a WR Memory Keepers 6x6 journal card.  I trimmed it and embossed it using Darice Basket Weave BG.  The Chevron ribbon is Paper Studio.  My cuts are Spellbinders Standard Circles and Petite Ovals.  My image and sentiment are from our sponsor this week... Bugaboo... Wee One Cowboy - Giddy Up.   We're always thrilled to have Bugaboo sponsor!!


Here is Melissa's wonderful sketch for this week...

"Hello friend" and some fun info


Just a quick post to share  a card and also some news.  First, here is my card...


This cute little guy comes from Doodle Pantry Aussie Critters.  I combined some of the digi paper that comes with this set, printed it, then cut it and the black mat with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A.  The image and sentiment were cut with Spellbinders Standard Circles.  I added the polka dot ribbon then popped up the circle.  Simple and easy, but still  cute.  

Now for the fun news...

Laurie, Doodle Pantry's owner/illustrator, is having 10 Days of Inspiration and Prizes at the Doodle Pantry Blog.   She started April 2, so today is day 4 and it will continue until April 11.  She is showing some of her creations and offering a prize just for commenting! Read all about it HERE then check out all the posts so far, comment, and maybe you'll win! 

Have a Blessed Resurrection Sunday tomorrow!!

Thinking of you - AIMPDC4


Can you believe it is April already???  It really is April 1st... that's no joke!! :)

Today, Doodle Pantry's Ants in My Pantry Digital Challenge 4 begins at noon.  Head over to the blog to check it out HERE.  The theme is "anything digital goes."

When I make "thinking of you" cards, they are usually intended for someone who needs the encouragement that I'm thinking of them and praying for them.  But this card was made to send for a just-for-fun "thinking of you."
 

Isn't he cute?  Wouldn't this make you smile?   It's a pretty simple, one layer card.  I combined patterned and plain digi papers and added the colored image and sentiment.  All I had to do then was add the bow and googly eyes.  

My digi paper, image, and sentiment are from Autumn Critters.  


Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Easter blessings - TMS #294


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  This week, we are excited to have an SVG company sponsoring, so that's what you see on my card today...


Our sponsor is SVG Attic... 

My little lamb comes from the set JGW Happy Easter.  I took the "image" and put it on my card, but this little guy is made for a shaped box.  Lots of cool stuff in this set!!  {I cut him using Make-the-Cut and made a shadow layer so he'd stand out better against the white background.} 

I stretched our wonderful sketch by Melissa...

Hot cocoa - TMS #293


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Spring is officially here, but we've had a couple of days with temps only in the 20's, and some of my family (and our teamie Jessi) still have piles and piles of snow, so it's really more hot cocoa weather than flip flop time!  


My image is Heather Valentin's Rory's Hot Cocoa from Sweet Pea Stamps... our sponsor for this week!  We're happy to have Sweet Pea as a new sponsor!!



This week, we are playing with one of my sketches...  I hope you like it!
