Happy Brrrrrthday, Noah

Our nephew Noah is turning 11 next week and in honor of his January birthday, I decided to make a winter themed birthday card for him with my new set of stamps from My Favorite Things. It is called Ready, Set, Snow and features not only this polar bear but also a penguin and a rabbit on fun! I also used the sketch this week from MFT:

I kind of flipped this sketch for my card....having the focal point polar bear (represented by the circle on the sketch) more on the left of my card rather the right as seen on the sketch. I added rolling snowy hills instead of the parallel lines on the sketch. All in all I was pleased with the end result.

I am entering this card in the MFT Sketch 420 Challenge.

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Clean & Simple Challenge

That's is for now....hubby and I are going out on a date night for some pizza. My two favorites husband and pizza!!

Eat, Drink and Be Cozy

Just wanted to share a quick card I made tonight for a couple of challenges and to build my card stash. I used this sketch from Stick It Down:

I was inspired by the blues and grays and attempted to create a cozy card (along with a cozy sentiment). All the inspiration came from this picture:

I am entering it in the Inspired By....Getting Cozy Challenge.

That's it for tonight. Time to retire to the couch with a cozy blanket.

Abby's Valentine's Day Card

I started on my Valentine's Day cards today. I love Valentine's Day because I love to tell my family and friends that I love them. I hope I get a chance to make a lot of cards this year. This one is for Abby who is nearly 11 years old. She is a real animal lover so I think she will like the polar on her card. I used this awesome sketch from Julee Tilman:

I just LOVE Julee's sketches....they really inspire me. I am linking up my card on her blog
Poetic Artistry. That is about it for now. Hope you enjoyed your weekend.

All the Way to Singapore

This card is all packaged up already to mailed off to an online coffee/hot cocoa loving friend in Singapore. The truth is I am never able to build up much of a stash of cards. I mail out ALL my cards usually right after I make them.

This card is made with all dies from My Favorite Things and I used their weekly sketch:

I am entering it in their Sketch Challenge #417

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge
Pixie's Snippets Playground -- I used up all kinds of scraps (snippets) from my scrap basket for this card.

That is it for now....I am headed off to my scrap room and hope to be back later to share more projects with you.

Christmas With Jake and Cole

I actually scrapped these photos on Christmas Day....the same day they were taken! I do not think that has ever happened before. But our family is 1100 miles away and my husband and I were spending a very quiet Christmas Day. My son texted me the photos and voila! I documented the day. Now if I could only get the Christmas photos of the girls from my other

I played along with the Scrap Our Stash Blend-A-Sketch challenge. This was really a lot of fun.

I used the right hand side sketch for the 4 photo placement and placement of the journaling. I used the left side of the sketch for all the layering behind the photos and the snowflake and hexagon shaped embellishments and also the placement of the title.

Part of the challenge was to use 3 of the same embellishment. I used 3 hearts on the left side of my page.

That is about it for today.  I hope to get back in my creative space later today and work on some more projects. If I do, I will be back to share some more. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Sympathy Card

I found this Stampin' Up complete stamp set at a thrift store last week for only $1.50. Although it is a bit out of the box for me, I could not pass it up. I brought it home and immediately made this card. It is simple bur I think it would be a good sympathy card which I struggle making.

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

That is it for now....I will be back later to share a scrapbook page. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.


Thanksgiving 2018

I actually scrapped these pictures for each of my son's albums. It warms my heart to see them get together and celebrate occasions with all the grandkids present. For this page I used the December 15th Sketch #167 from Sketch-n-Scrap:
