Cancer is so limited - TMS #754

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Here is my card...


My paper was a scrap.  The sentiment is from My Time Made Easy "Be Supportive."  I cut it with CottageCutz Stitched Rectangles.  I then cut it apart so I could add the "praying" sentiment  across it without covering any.  The "praying" is a digital sentiment of which I have many printed.  I inked it after cutting it out with Kat Scrappiness Stitched Fishtail Banners.   

Here's our sketch...

Thanks so much - TMS #753

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

My daughter got married last month, but they got married in his home town, so we planned her wedding from afar.  Since it was out of town, we had a reception where we live this past weekend, so life's been busy!  All that to say that my card is pretty simple and was quick and easy to put together...

I dry embossed a panel with Darice Dots Background EF.  The black dotted paper was a scrap.  The tag was in my stash.  The sentiment is Papertrey Ink.  And the ribbon was from my stash.  Simple and easy.

I'm hoping life will settle down a bit and I can spend some more time in my craft room! 

Here's our sketch...

dad defined - TMS #751

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I'm working ahead on my occasion cards.  Today, I've got a fun father's day card...

This was pretty simple.  My DP is K&Company Color Basics Radiant.  I cut the curved end with CottageCutz Double Stitched Ovals.  My sentiment is The Project Bin Defined.  I love the definition! LOL  

Here's our fun sketch... this one can be very simple, as I did, or very fancy, and you'll see some of the DT made it...

Non-traditional Christmas - SCC #159

 Good morning!  Happy April Fool's Day!  I thought of telling an outrageous story and then saying, "April Fool's!" but couldn't think of anything, so you just get to see my card for this month's challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenge!  Our theme is "non-traditional colors."

Here's my card...  


I love this because it is also a recycled card.  I actually made 3 from the tri-fold card I received a couple of Christmases ago.  I knew as soon as I got it that I would be recycling it, but it took me awhile. LOL  I adhered the cutout scene onto an A2 card base.  I cut the sentiment from white heavy cardstock then navy.  This is Pink & Main Merry Christmas.  This card makes me very happy and sad at the same time.  I love the card, but it makes me miss going to NYC at Christmastime!

I know that my Redeemer lives! - TMS #750

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Oops!  I'm late getting my post up. :O  It's been a busy few weeks with  my daughter getting married.  But the "I do" is all said and they are man and wife! <3  My body and brain are in after-the-wedding-release-crash-mode, but I'll get back into the groove of things soon, hopefully. ;) 

Here's my card... 

This was simple to put together.  The sentiment/image was in my box of printed digis, so I cannot remember where it is from.  It is cut out with CottageCutz Double Stitched Ovals.  I did not create the extra frame shown in the sketch below, but I thought the frame in the image itself and the double stitching on the die would count. :)  The BG panel is Crate Paper Bloom and inked with Color Box Cat's Eye Merlot. 

Here's the sketch...

We'd love to have you play along with us!! 

Here's one pic from the wedding.  It's just a snapshot of our family. <3

And if you don't know what my card means or don't have a personal relationship with God, we'd love to have you tune in to our Easter program this Friday evening at 7 PM EST or Sunday morning at 10 EST as we celebrate the resurrection of the Jesus Christ who is our Redeemer.   You'll find it at fbcm.live or on our FB page...   https://www.facebook.com/fbcmilford

Plaid Christmas - SCC #158

It's time for another challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenge!   Our theme is "Plaid or Tartan" and I chose the theme.  But as you can see, my post did not go live on Mar 1 as it should have!!  Oops!  My life is a little crazy right now.  My daughter is getting married in 13 days (the wedding is 300 miles away), we are renovating our basement into an apartment for them, and we are practicing much for our Easter program at church.  

So that's my excuse for not getting this done on time. :/


I cut the trees out of Recollections Christmas Plaid DP with MFT Cool Christmas dies.  The sentiment is an old one that no longer has the packaging, so no name.  The sky is Sizzix Cloudy Day EF.   The button is Papertrey Ink Buttoned Up #1.

Just a note - TMS #746

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  We've got a fun sketch and a fun request in the creating of your card, but first, here's my card...

My image is Polka Dot Flower from DRS Designs.  The sentiment is 1 Line Just a Note and also from DRS Designs.  I colored it with a Spectrum Noir marker and inked the edges.  The colored strips are TH dried marigold and forest moss Distress Inks. 

Here's our fun sketch and Melissa has asked us to think "brush strokes" for the lines on the bottom.  I don't have paints, so I improvised and did some "swinking"!  That is swiping and inking.  I used the ink cubes listed above.  I really like the look of it!

I miss you - C4G #219

Hi!  It's time for another challenge at Cardz 4 Galz!  Our theme is "seascape."  We want to see whatever that means to you.  Most people think of a beach, but this image immediately came to mind and is a perfect representation of what I would see when I went to the bay/sea near where I grew up and also when I traveled... (Below I added a couple of pics I took when we were in northern Scotland several years ago.)


My image is Delicious Doodles Scottish Castle.  It does seem more of a masculine image, but it's all I had to represent the sea.  And I added sparkly dots to make more girly. :)   My DP is MME Portobello Road.  My sentiment is Raisin Boat You Said It! and cut out with Simon Says Stamp Tiny Tags.  Twine and adhesive dots from my stash finished it off.   

Here are my pics taken in a small town on the North Sea in Scotland...

Happy Birthday - TMS #745

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  My weekend did not allow for as much time in my craft room as I'd hoped, so my file of ready-to-go digital items came to the rescue and made my card easy to create...


The BG paper is a Crate Paper scrap that was sitting on my desk after another project. :)  Digging through my file of printed digis, I found the iralamijashop musical print that I cut in 3.  The pre-colored digi image is from Doodle Pantry (so that tells you how long it's been waiting to be used!).  I did color the roses to make them darker to match the paper better.  Cut the image with CottageCutz Double Stitched Rectangles.   Because the sentiment was already on the image, I just added a tiny banner and some adhesive pearls.  

Here's the sketch...

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Here's my card for this week...


I cut a white panel and dry embossed it with Darice Brick.  I then inked it with TH Antique Linen.  My sentiment is Tonic Studios From the Heart Sentiments.  It's framed with a scrap I pulled from my trash can, literally! LOL  The ribbon and button are from my stash.

Faker shaker card - C4G #218

Hi!  It's time for another challenge at Cardz 4 Galz!  This time our theme is "'sequins"!  I have to admit that I am not a hug fan of sequins and glitter (I prefer just shimmer), so this was a challenge for me.  Then I remembered a YouTube video I'd watched recently on faker shaker cards and realized I could do that...




I make a top folding card out of pink cardstock.  I stenciled the flowers on white cardstock with Altenew Sweet Spring Stencil using Catherine Pooler Be Mine and Rockin' Red.  Here's where the "fake" part comes in.  I trimmed the stenciled panel and slid it into a card protector.  It was the perfect size to fit across the bottom.  I then poured in some FSJ Journey Sequins and FJS Star-fetti.  Then trimmed it leaving enough to fold over and secure.  The frame was cut large enough to cover/hide the edge and leave room to adhere it to the card.  "happy" is from an old word die set that I lost the packaging to a loooong time ago. "Birthday" is from Poppystamps Marzipan Greetings. 

This was fun and much simpler than the "traditional" shaker card!  Here's a link to the video I watched...   Faker Shaker Cards

Golfer's birthday - TMS #743

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  My card is for my soon to be son-in-law.  He loves to golf! 


My image is from Creative Fabrica.  I printed it on vellum and colored the back side because I wasn't sure whether the ink would mess with the printing or not.  I'm never sure which settings to use when printing vellum.  (Any suggestions would be welcome!)  I adhered it to white cardstock and framed it with the Paper Studio Silver cardstock cut with Scalloped Stitched Rectangles.  My sentiment is Raisin Boat You Said It cut out with Kat Scrappiness Stitched Fishtail Banners.  

This sketch is our last revisit from last year.  It's Tammy's favourite... #719 played Aug 8...

Paper tree - SCC #157

Happy February 1st!   It's time for our new challenge at Sparkles Christmas  Challenge!  This month we want to see your Kraft Christmas cards!  Here's mine...

This was so easy and fun to make!  I embossed a panel with Cuttlebug Allegra embossing folder.   My paper strips are from all the sheets of paper left in my Christmas 6x6 pads that I didn't like enough to use. LOL  They are ok in little strips. :)   The star is Sweet n Sassy Stamps. I just realized I did not add a sentiment, but I think it's obvious that this is a Christmas card.  Plus I always stamp a Christmas greeting on the inside of my cards. ;) 

Please come play along at Sparkles Christmas  Challenge this month!

hello - TMS #742

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


This is pretty simple, but still very pretty.  (At least IRL!)  The paper is Prima Something Blue.  The circle is Impressions Obsessions Scribbled Circles.  I kept the center in so that the sentiment would show up better.  It is Sweet n Sassy Stamps Script Sentiments.

Smiles across the miles - C4G #217

 Hi!  It's time once again for a new challenge at Cardz 4 Galz!  Our theme is "reds and/or pinks."  That's a good theme if you are making Valentine cards.  I am not.  My card is basically just to say hello...

My paper is Prima Romance Novel.  I love this die!  (I really need to use it more often!)  It is Die-sire Postbox and Robin.  (My "robin" is blue so he'd show up on the red post box.)  My sentiment is from Spellbinders Sunday Drive All-Occasion Sentiments.

Cherish the memories - TMS #741

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I've got a sympathy card to share today... 


My paper is Prima Romance Novel.  The sentiment is a digi that's been waiting in my extra box for awhile.  The black trim was cut with a Fiskars punch.  It's hard to see, but there is a very thin strip of gold between the black and tan papers. 

This week's sketch is Melissa's favorite.  It was #703 played on 4/18/23...

Peonies - TMS #740

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  It's time for Donna's favorite sketch, and I cheated a little on this one.  I let the paper do almost all of my work for me. :)

My DP (and image) is Pebbles Garden Party.  I rounded 2 corners with my CM corner rounder.  I cut the peonies panel with CottageCutz Stitched Rectangles and made the border on the frame with an old Fiskars punch. The sentiment is The Project Bin Defined.  I added a few Caramel Cream Nuvo Crystal Drops.  

Here's the sketch... (This was #707 on 5/16/23.)

Merry & Bright - TMS #739

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

Yes, I've got a Christmas card for you.  I'm on the DT of a Christmas challenge, so I make them often through the year, but I made this one so I could use a new "toy" that was perfect for the sketch. :) 


I just got this snowflake BG... it is Poppystamps Snowflake Background.  My sentiment is Sum More Fun Tangled Tinsel.  The circles are Die-versions Stitched Circles. The extra snowflake is a MS punch.  The DP is Recollections Regent Street. The shimmer of the silver paper is so pretty!  Here's a different angle...

Balloon birthday - TMS #738

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

As usual in the beginning of the year, we are revisiting the Design Team's favorite sketches from 2023, and since my name is first alphabetically, my favorite is first.  (This was #728 played 10/10/23.)  Here's my card, then you'll see the sketch...


This is a pretty simple, but fun card.  When I get down to just a few pages in my 6x6 pads that aren't my favorite, I toss them in with my scraps. This is one of them.  My balloons are MFT Happy Birthday Balloon Trio.  My sentiment is CB Birthday Wishes. 

Here's our sketch... hope you enjoy playing with it again!

Snow globe Christmas - SCC #156

 Happy New Year and a Blessed 2024 to you!!

It's time for our January challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenge #156.  Our theme is "winter wonderland" so you can interpret that and show us what a winter wonderland looks like for you! To me, it means SNOW!! :)  The snow is technically not visible in my card, but it is certainly suggested.  :)   I have been on many sleigh rides in my life, and love the crunch of the snow under the runners. And the fun of shaking snowy branches on those in the sleigh. (I intended to use my VersaMark pen and add some snow to the branches, but forgot until everything was put together.  Oops! 


My image is Sweet n Sassy Stamps Old Fashioned Christmas.  I inked the BG with TH stormy sky distress ink.  The front panel is Poppystamps Raining Frame.  I cut the circle part of Darice Snow Globe out of it for the illusion of something falling.  My sentiment is Raisin Boat Formal Phrases.  The branches are a MS punch and I colored some adhesive dots red.  

Start your year off right and start on your Christmas cards and play along with us at Sparkles Christmas Challenge! ;)  

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!
