Don't Get Your Tinsel in A Tangle

I saw the most awesome sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch over the weekend and just knew I wanted to create a card with it. This card (almost) turned out like I pictured in my mind. I used this sketch:

Be Merry

Sometimes I just love making masculine cards and this simple yet masculine card is one that came together quickly and that I was instantly pleased with it. I was inspired my Cornelia's deer head card from Muse Christmas Visions:

You're On The Nice List

I am really still loving making Christmas cards although birthday season is coming up in my family so I am going to need to switch to birthday cards soon but in the mean time I love this card I have to share with you today. I used 2 different stamp sets from My Favorite Things and their sketch this week:

Welcome Baby Alice

I became a great aunt for the first time the end of August when my nephew Kyle and his long time girlfriend Mary had little baby Alice. I really had to get creative to make this card as I do not have any baby products or stamps.  But after thinking about it for a few days I came up with a plan and I think it turned out nicely. Of course a big reason it turned out well was the awesome sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap:

I am also entering this card in the Wednesday Simon Says Stamp Challenge -- Add a Sentiment.

Well that is about it for tonight. I am soooo glad that tomorrow is Friday, how about you?

Florida Fun Cont'd

I am still working on my June 2016 pocket pages. It doesn't bother me being behind --.I am enjoying the process. When I saw this month's Elle's Studio Challenges I really wanted to get them all done. This one is the only challenge that I got done. This page is for the Stand Out Title Challenge. The challenge was to use a journaling card for my title. I actually used and embellished 2 journaling cards from Elle's Studio on this page....the card in the upper left and the Sunshine and ____________ card in the lower right. I also used an awesome acrylic "Super Cool" from Elle's Studio as well. I am really crushing on their acrylics and title builders lately and you will see a number of them in upcoming projects.

Well that is all for tonight. It's Monday and I am not fond of Mondays so I think I just might hit the sheets an hour or so early tonight. Hopefully I will get time to craft tomorrow nught and I will be back later in the week with more to share.

Hope Your Day Doesn't Bite

I did not get a whole lot of of time this weekend to craft but I did get this fun card made. It is for the Interactive Card Challenge at Tuesday Throwdown and the shark is on an action wobble. I even took a picture of it wobbling:

Since Newton's Nook is sponsoring the challenge at Tuesday Throwdown, I just had to use one of my favorites Newton's Nook stamp sets. I have a whole boatload of birthdays coming up so I am not sure who is going to receive this card but I think they will have fun with it. I used this sketch from

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Birthday Challenge.

Well my weekend is officially over and I am heading for bed. I hope to get crafty tomorrow after work and make a card to welcome a brand new baby into the family. I will be sharing that one soon.

Aloha Dude

No, it is no longer July but I am still enjoying making Christmas cards. I made this one for my 16 year grandson. He is at the stage where he calls everyone Dude. He even slipped recently when I was in town and called me Dude and then corrected himself and said, "Errr, I mean Grandma." It was fun to see him turn all shades of red...he was very embarrassed. So I know he will get the sentiment on this card.

I made this card for the Mix it Up Challenge on the Ellen Hutson Classroom Blog. The challenge was to use one product from Ellen Hutson (I used the hipster Santa image from Tis The Season) and mix it with a product from Avery Elle. The sentiment from Avery Elle is from their Surf's Up stamp set which is an older set but one of my very favorites.

I am also entering this card in the Wednesday Simon Says Stamp For A Child Challenge.

Thant's it for now...I hope you are having a good weekend.


Have a Beary Special Day

I had surgery on my hand this past Wednesday and have a big bandage on it for two weeks...no fun. Let me tell you everything takes longer with one hand and some things are darn right impossible. So it took me awhile on this card and I ended up staying up late on Thursday night getting the presents wrapped and the package all ready to be shipped to the Chicago area. But I got it done and I like the way this card turned out. I used this week's sketch from My Favorite Things :

I am also entering this card in the Monday Simon Says Stamp Birthday Challenge.

Well that is it for now....I will be back later to show you a funky non-traditional Christmas card I just made.

Magic Day

And the Disney pages continue. Each of the girls got their photo with Snow White individually because Izzy was away from the table when Snow White stopped by. I am so impressed on how Disney goes out of their way to make the experience truly magical.

For this page I used this sketch from Sketch and Scrap:

I am entering it in their August sketch contest....you can see all the details HERE.

Well I am going into work a bit late today and I need to get on the road. Catch ya'll later.

Livin' The Fairy Tale

We took my son and granddaughters to Disney in June and I am just getting started on scrapping the pictures. This is my first layout for the Disney album. We got Fast Passes for a meet and greet with two of the Princesses when we first arrived and the rest of the photos were from our lunch at Cinderella's Royal Table. I was sooooo thrilled to score reservations for that event. They are not easy to come by.

I used this awesome sketch from Let's Scrap for these photos.....it was perfect.

I am entering this layout in the August 1st Let's Scrap sketch challenge.

That's it for now.  We are going to go out for a bite to eat since it is my birthday and I will be back later with another Disney page.

Thanks for stopping by.
