Paper Smooches Sketch Challenge

When I was a teenager my favorite color was purple and while it is no longer my favorite color I still love it. So I had fun working with my purple watercolors this week and made this fun card for a good friend. I used Paper Smooches stamps and their sketch for April:

It has been WAY too long since I entered one of their monthly challenges but that is what I am doing with this card. If you want to enter, there is still plenty of time. You can check out all the details HERE

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Happy Hump Day!

Happy Easter

I absolutely loved coloring these Lawn Fawn little jelly beans on this simple Easter card for my granddaughter. I am entering this card in the LawnFawnatics Challenge #50 --Fun With Food

I am also entering this in the Sunday Stamps Weekly challenge....this week it is this awesome sketch:

The final challenge I am entering this card in is the current
Tuesday Throwdown Anything Goes Challenge.

I have to cut this short because we are headed out of town to celebrate my husband's birthday this weekend. Enjoy your weekend!!

It is hard to believe but my son is turning 39 the end of April. I thought I would add a bit of humor to his birthday with this card. I used this fun sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking out my creation. Have a wonderful and productive week.

Week 10 Abby Turns 11

Time to share another spread in my Traveler's Notebook. I am really being inspired by the monthly challenges that Lisa and Lori are putting out there. I used (and loved!) Lisa's sketch:

Lori's challenge was to use washi tape on my TN layout. I used my favorite thin glitter washi tape on the left side of the spread to create separation between the two patterned papers.

If you want to play along you can get all the details on Lisa's Blog My Creative Endeavors and on Lori's Blog My Happy Life. One project get's you two chances to win.

I am also entering this page in the Wednesday Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge. 

Thanks for dropping in....

New Fave Coffee

I am trying something new this year for my memory keeping of my husband's and my day-to-day life. I am using a Traveler's Notebook and I am loving it. I have done Project Life and all sorts of modifications of the pocket page thing and of course I still scrap 12x12 albums but I am loving this compact, easy to take and scrap on the go format. And sketches are easily adaptable when you open the notebook and treat the 2 pages as one. That is what I did with this page. I used this awesome sketch from Stick It Down:

Thanks for stopping by to check out my blog. I am going to hit the sheets....I had a long, tiring Monday.

Happy Birthday #11

My oldest granddaughter is turning 11 next week and although I was home sick today and feeling quite lethargic, I pushed myself to make this card for her and I am pleased with the way it turned out.

I used this fun sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap and am entering it in their February challenges....slipping it right in under the wire in fact.

I used 2 stamp sets from Your Next Stamp.....the koala image is from Kyle the Koala Bear and this is my first time inking him up......isn't he absolutely adorable?? The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Little Darling Mermaid set. I have stars on my paper and few puffy sticker stars so I am entering this card in the Fun Friday Challenge #108 over at Your Next Stamp....Seeing Stars

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge.
Well that is it for now....I am not feeling well so I think I will go to bed a bit early. I sure hope this cold and flu season is over soon.

Get Stuff Done -- Week 7

This is the second year I have been documenting my weekly favorite moments and this year I am using a traveler's notebook which is a brand new experience for me. It took a little getting used to the smaller size canvas...I am typically a 12x12 scrapbooker but I really am loving it. I was extra excited to find a new monthly challenge just for TN memory keepers. It is called
TN Time With Lisa and Lori and features a sketch by Lisa and a challenge from Lori. Here is the current awesome sketch that I used:

I found the clipboard notecard in my stash and was very excited to use it on this sketch. Lori's challenge was to include someone and/or something that I love and to include at least one heart. Well I used a picture of my hubby painting our house....I love the home we have built together and of course, I am CRAZY about my husband. This one spread qualifies for both Lisa's Challenge which can be found HERE and Lori's challenge on her blog My Happy Life.

That is about it for now....thank you for checking out my blog.
