Rudy Doody Reindeer - TMS #276


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!   Thanks to those who participated in our awesome judged challenge last week... almost every entry used the twist!! :)

This week, I've got a fun Christmas card to show you...



I apologize for the poor quality of my picture!  My laptop is dying, so when this pic was taken and I didn't get a chance to edit it or add my watermark.  Believe it or not, it is Kraft paper though it looks a bit pink-ish in the pic. :/  The DP is K&Co Mod Holiday Design.  I used Cuttlegbug's Swiss Dots EF.  My image is Diane's Daydream Designs Rudy Doody the Reindeer.

Diane of Diane's Daydream Designs is our sponsor for this week...


Here's our great sketch by Jessi...

Harvest Bounty


I love fall!  Beautiful leaves, pumpkins (for decorating, not eating!), the fresh feeling of the chill in the air... I could go on and on, but now all the leaves have fallen, the grass is dead, and we have a bit of snow!  So though this card is all about fall and Thanksgiving, it's almost out of date already. :)


I used Card Cut Pumpkin SVG e-cuttable.  This set is one of Doodle Pantry's November's releases.  To give the flower some dimension, I used my stylus and rubbed it over the petals and leaves.  The image is an outline from Harvest Bounty colored with my Spectrum Noir markers.

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

TMS #274-Judged Challenge



Today is Remembrance Day (if you're in Canada or Britain)
or Veterans Day (if you're in the US).




Take a moment to remember those who have served and those who have given all.  If you see a serviceman/woman and have the opportunity, say "thank you" to them.  While at an airport last week, we saw a young man in a wheelchair.  As he turned, we saw he had no legs.  My husband went up to the man and his wife, asked if he had served, and thanked them for their service.  The man was appreciative, and then the wife said, "I didn't do anything." Oh yes, she did!  She waited for her soldier and is by his side now as life will never be the same again.  If any of my readers are serving or have served.  I want to say thank you!!!

It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!

This week is our JUDGED CHALLENGE with a TWIST!!  
We choose the winner this week and also pick a Top 5!!  
Our TWIST is "Pumpkins & Leaves" (I went with leaves)

Here's my card...


Here's our wonderful sketch by Nina...  Can't wait to see what you do with it!


 Our sponsor this week is Digital Delights by Louby Loo!  Play along for a chance to win!


My image is Acorn Mouse.  I colored him with my Spectrum Noir markers. The sentiment was printed and sitting on my desk and I can't remember where it's from.  My DP was also sitting on the shelf after being torn out of a stack, so I can't remember where it came from either!  My leaves -for the challenge of "Pumpkins & Leaves"- are the brads that I bought these brads the first scrapbook I ever made back in 2005.   I am really using my "stash" this week!!    

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to go check out the creations from the rest of our DT...

Owl be praying...


This is a busy week for me, but I've got time to show you a card.  Right now I could use several of this card to send to friends!  Life is full of burdens, but I'm so thankful that we can turn to the Lord and know that He hears and answers prayer!!


This came together pretty quickly so I would be able to make several to send out.  I printed the colored image and sentiment then cut them out with Spellbinders Labels Three.  The flourishes are cut with Spellbinders Doodle Parts.  My last bit of this AC ribbon and a Prima flower finished it off.   My image is from Doodle Pantry's What A Hoot.  Such a cute set! 

Challenges...
Word Art Wednesday #155 - anything goes w/ provided Scripture or encouraging or uplifting sentiment
{PIN}spirational Challenge #126 - photo inspiration (I went with the colors...red, orange, brown)

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Anne with an "E"


If you are an Anne of Green Gables fan, you understood my title immediately.  I cannot tell you how many times I read the Anne books.  I love them!!  I have almost all of L.M. Montgomery's books.  I was such a fan of the books that when the movie came out in the early 80's, I HATED it because it was not enough like the books.  I did learn to love watching the movies, but it took me awhile to get over all the "wrong" things in them. The book is always better, don't you think?

My Anne card has been awhile in the making.  Life has been so busy that I've not had a lot of time to make just for fun, but I did with this one.  I've wanted this "Anne of Green Gables" stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie for looooong time and finally just ordered it a couple of months ago.  I printed the image and it sat.  I colored it and it sat, and finally just finished it.  I'm going to make a few more cards with this image for my sisters, my niece, and a few friends.  Last month, we all went to see "Anne of Green Gables The Musical" in Charlottetown.  It was so awesome!!  I had seen it when I was a girl, and other than some new staging and props, it's just the same as it was then.  That's really neat since this year is the 50th year of this musical!!   (It was NOT 50 yrs ago that I saw it!!!!)

Enough chatter, here's the card...


Challenges...
Kraftin' Kimmie Wonderful Wednesday - anything goes (my image is KK!!)
Pile It On #41 - Use 2 or more dies (2 sizes of A2 Matting Basics A)
613 Avenue Create #93 - Anything goes w/ optional CAS (I went with AG)
Crafting From the Heart #40 - Anything goes
Through the Craft Room Door Oct 14-20 - anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #154 - Anything goes w/ encouraging or uplifting sentiment
