Christmas card challenge week 9

Happy Sunday!!

This weeks challenge is make a card
using your favorite technique.
You can go here to play along.

One of my favorite techniques is paper piecing!!
I paper pieced Ice skating Chloe's hat, scarf,
jacket and skirt. I love this image from
Sparkle Creations rubber stamp.

The paper is from a paper stack I got at
Micahels, sentiment comes with this cute
image of Chloe.
Come play along this week!!

Now, who's going to CHA? I can't wait
to get there and see my crafty friends
and meet some new ones! and see all the
fun, new and exciting things!!
I will post pictures throughout the week

Finally scrapping again!!

Well, I am finally getting back on track...
My goal is to get at least one two page layout and
one card done a day (wish me luck)
Hopefully I can get caught up and stay that way.

Here is a layout right our of CTMH idea book.
I copied the layout and even used the exact same paper pack!
That made it so fast and easy.
I just may copy every layout in my ideas books to get
caught up. (have you seen the new book? lots of GREAT
layouts and ideas).

These pictures are from Christmas 2010 when my
grandmother was here from Utah visiting us.
Here is a close up of page one

page two

I used some thickers for my title.

Have a great day and happy scrapping!
See you tomorrow with another layout (fingers crossed)

Holiday Cheer - Week 8

Happy Sunday!

This weeks Christmas Card Challenge is...
Coloring (colored pencils, copics, etc.)

You can go here to play along.
You have all week! come join the fun
and get your Christmas cards done for 2012.

I used Caroling Josh from Sparkle Creations rubber stamps
for this weeks card. the paper is from a paper
stack I got from Michael's before Christmas.
I used my copics to color (of course) I so
need/want to take a copics class.
That is on my wish/goal/bucket list for this year.

The sentiment is from CTMH.
I have been a very busy girl scrapping and
making cards...I have lots to post for this coming week...
I just need to take pictures and get it posted.
I am hoping to get back to a few other
challenges I have been missing.

I won't be crafting much today...
going to watch the 49'er vs Giants game.
I don't really care for football (LOL)
This is the second year I just picked any team to be "my" team
just to be opposite of my husband and daughter (they both love the game)
both of their teams are OUT and the team
I picked is still in!!! (who knew)
I only picked this team because I thought the QB was
kind of a cutie (HA! who knew he was so talented).

Have a fabulous day and I will see you tomorrow with an update.

~~~Hugs, Pat

update my blog more often this week.

Christmas card challenge week 6

It sure feel good to be back...
This weeks challenge is to use lace.
(it was a true challenge for me since I
don't use lace and don't have any on hand)
I had to run out and buy a couple pieces.
I think I will try using lace more often.

You can go here to play along.
I used a couple pieces of scrap dp, the
stamped images are from CTMH.

I'm not sure I like this card...
I made three different cards for this
challenge! I didn't like my coloring
on the first card and the second card
I didn't like the color combo. So,
this (my third) card wins.

I can't wait to see you what you come up with.
I will be back during the week with a couple new layouts
and I hope to get some cards done.
