Been Awhile...

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile...  I have been consumed with real life and my new day job.  :)  
I welcome myself to the real world!  Hee hee

I thought I would post and share an image of a card I made recently ...

I now have a 'regular' work schedule so I am looking at posting more frequently!!

Sketchy Sunday...

I decided to try out Tiffany's sketch over on iheartart

The pictures turned out VERY badly!!  Sorry bout that.
I am not overly impressed with my card but I do like the digi stamp from Pink Petticoat.
I printed the image on vellum and then painted it with MakingMemories Pearl Paint and Studio G Glitter Glue.  The cardstock, pattern paper and ribbon are all from my stash.

Color Challenge...

While browsing the many blogs that I follow I came across a color challenge on Crate Paper's Blog.  Although I didn't have an Crate Paper products I wanted to try out this color combo.

I really had a good time with this one and it came together for quick and easy!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the dark grey cardstock that I used for this card.  I wish I knew where it came from...  Once again I am just trying to use up the tons of product I have in my stash.

Get Well...

After looking at the sketch challenge over at Card Positioning Systems I had an idea pop in my mind that I just had to try.

I wanted the band-aid to take center stage so I kept the card pretty simple.
All products were from my stash.

Better Late Than Never...

I have been wanting to send out Thank You cards for Christmas from my kiddos for months now.  But for one reason or another they never seemed to get done...  I found a card idea that I really liked and began creating the cards in hopes of getting them finished quickly and mailed out.  I had the roughest time coming up with a design that I actually liked...  After try number 3, this is what the final product came out to look like...

I am fairly happy with the end result.  Any thoughts?

You're How Old?...

I have found a GREAT new site for Digi stamps.  I am talking a TON of freebies!!
Create with TLC         You have got to check this site out!
When I saw this freebie I knew I was going to HAVE to use it...
We are celebrating a Birthday this coming Saturday and I needed a masculine card.
Here is what I came up with:
For the card design I followed the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 105 from The Sweetest Thing Blog
Join in and play along!
For this card I used paper, vellum and ribbon from my stash.  I have been trying to use up bits and pieces that I have to make room for new purchases!

Baby Boy Owl Card

I was asked to make a card for a family that is expecting a baby boy this week.  I was told the family is going with an Owl theme for the nursery so this was my starting point.  See what I came up with...

I forgot to take a photo of the inside but I used the same papers and buttons.
All the paper was from my stash as was the hemp and buttons.  I paper pieced the owl using a free digi stamp from Dustin Pike.

My First Card Challenge

So I decided I was going to start taking part in some card making challenges.  I figured I ought to put my card making to some use...  I am notorious for never sending the cards I make so at least if I make them and enter them in some challenges they get some purpose to them other than just collecting dust.  I sat down last night and drew myself a calendar for the month of February and started marking challenge due dates on it.  Fingers crossed that I follow through and actually take part in one or two.

The first challenge that I created a card for was over on Tiffany Johnson's blog

I decided to turn the sketch sideways and create a 'Hey Diddle Diddle' type card.

Here is what I came up with:

Hope you like it...

Materials used: Colorbok textured cardstock, Discount patterned paper, Creative Memories paper ribbon, Stampin Up markers, fine gauge wire, Cricut Expression with free svg files found on
