My last Thanksgiving Day card for 2010!

Here is my last Thanksgiving Day card for this year!!
(I promise) i need about 6 more cards but didn't
have time or many scraps left over so I decided
to do a clean and simple card...
I stamped Farming Oliver (from Sparkle Creations)
right on the cardstock and
then used my copics to color him in and of
course I did some doodling and added the flower
and button. The sentiment is from TPC Studio.

I am loving this card!! I have to say I think
it's one of my favorite!! and I will
be making a few Christmas cards like this using
Holiday Emily....stay tuned I will post
a picture as soon as I get her done.
Have a great Saturday!

Cafe Lucy...

I received my new stamps from Sparkle Creations
the other day and I couldn't wait to ink them!!
I also knew I wanted to make a different
size card. (getting a little bored with the same size)
This is what I came up with...I just measured a legal
size envelope and went from there.

It is a little LARGE!! I Love it!!
And since I am such a coffee freak...this
image is just perfect for me!!
The sentiment is from just rite stampers
Enjoy your Friday and your weekend.

Thankful for you

Here is my card for this weeks SCRS challenge.
This week our challenge is giving thanks and
SCRS is also sponsoring TMS,
their challenge is cupcakes!
So, this image is perfect for both challenges!
(The sketch is also from TMS)
I made this card with a very special friend
in mind...I won't say her name but she will
know when she gets it!

Of course these are all scraps!! I even used
a piece of scrap to paper piece her dress.
Hope you all have a wonderful day!
I will be inking all day...I received my new
stamp order from Sparkle Creations yesterday!!!
(Thank You Sparkle! I LOVE them!)

Mojo Monday challenge #165

Happy Hump Day!!
This week is flying...I can't believe next week is Thanksgiving!!
That means the Holiday season is officially here!
I think this is the last of my Thanksgiving Day cards.
I have been on a roll...I make at least two cards at a time.
It helps with using up the scraps and not having any
left over paper!!
Don't you just love this image!
I don't remember where it came from (sorry).
Here is card #2...
I did some sewing on this one.
And here is this weeks sketch.
Have a crafty day!

Christmas card challenge #50

This week the challenge is to make a "shaped" card.
Anything other than a square or circle card.
This is what I came up with...
I pulled out my cricut and cut two star shapes
cut one smaller one and sewed it on.

I just love this image from Sparkle Creations!
I think I will make a couple more of these
and use them as gift tag cards?!
Happy Crafting!!

I colored a couple of these images the other, I decided to make another card
using this image. Isn't she cute.
I even pulled out my sewing machine!!
I haven't done that in a while...I need to get
some different color thread. I can't believe
I only have white!!!

I hope to get some scrapping done today!
(wish me luck)
Have a great day and Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Thanksgiving...

(do I say that every Friday?)
I hope you all are not tired of seeing my
Thanksgiving cards...I promise after this
weekend I will be putting my Thanksgiving
stamps away! I am so loving Farming Oliver!!
I think he can be used year round!

I am using up my scraps and loving it!!
I will be getting rid of all my scraps and paper
I haven't used at the end of the year.
I need to make room for some new fun stuff!!
(anyone want or need some paper?)
Have a great day and a wonderful weekend!

Give Thanks card

Another Thanksgiving day card...
I made this card the other day and I wasn't loving it!!
But, I have to admit, it has grown on me. I used up some
scraps...the stamps are from CTMH.
I guess I'm just not used to sentiment cards. I feel
like it is missing something if I don't have a colored
stamped image on my card.

Hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
Happy crafting!

This week our challenge is to make a
gift card holder card.

I am so loving my new Sparklecreations stamps!!

Christmas card challenge #48

This weeks Christmas card challenge is
to incluce a candy cane or other Christmas
treat on your card.
Isn't this the cuttest elf ever!!??
He is not a stamp...not even a digi!!
He is from a coloring book!! I copied him and
then colored him with my copics!!
I can't believe I don't have any stamps
with a candy cane!!

I made two just like this and may make a few was so easy!!
he was kinda plain so I decided to doodle.
I hope to get some crafting in this weekend...
maybe Sunday when my husband is watching football!!!
I will be doing a 10k tomorrow (wish me luck).
Have a great day and weekend!!

Mojo Monday #163

Here is my card for this weeks Mojo challenge.
I will be making Thanksgiving cards this week.
This is my first one!!
I made four exactly the same...I love this little
Indian girl. I got this image from my friend Sophia.
I am not a big fan of the greeting farm...but
once in awhile I find and image I like or that
grows on me.

The sketch this week was pretty easy.
I don't know why I can't copy and past
from the mojo web site...but, go check it
out and play along.
Have a great day and I will see you tomorrow with
another card!

Vacation layout....

Happy Hump Day!!
I am so trying to get back into posting on my blog...
I have been a little lazy and not taking pictures of
my layouts or cards.
Here is a layout I did right out of my new Magic book
from CTMH...I am so loving this book.
I think I may go page by page and do a every single layout.
Here is a close up of page one...I love the circles and
the buttons!! I am especially loving the color combo!!
The blue really makes this layout pop!
Page two has a little surprise...can you guess?!
Yup!! the little squares in the middle open up!!
...isn't this fun!! I love doing new techniques!!
I didn't have enough small pictures to fill in all four
squares so I just worked with what I had.
One of my new goals is to do a new technique everytime
I do a layout!! think I can do it?
Have a great day!!
I will have a couple of cards to post tomorrow.
