Sketches4u: card sketch

Image
Happy Friday everyone, I have been a little busy tonight. We have a baseball double header tomorrow so I'm trying to get all the stuff ready to make the boys lunch in between games tomorrow. It is supposed to be a beautiful day here in Northern Cali, so awesome for some baseball!
I also worked on and completed another challenge. I found this really cool web site called Sketches4all. It looks like it is going to be some fun. Well, it also took me to the Sketches4u blog. Well, there is a sketch challenge going on over there and I just had to do it and this is what I came up with!
So what do you think? I have been trying to get some Easter cards done so I can get them sent out by Tuesday so this was really nice. The stamped image I used is from Stampendous and for the longest time I wasn't sure how I was going to use it but it worked! I used my Copics, Gelly pens and Spicas to color it in. The pieces of square DP is from Cloud9design from the Baby Girl collection. I also embossed …

Mojo Monday 131

Hello everyone. Boy oh boy, Have I been busy. Baseball season is in full swing and my son is playing Junior Varsity and Freshman so we have a bunch of games during the week and on the weekends. I am also the team mom for the Freshman team and I am also making the Thank you cards for all of the coaches, Freshman,JV and Varsity. That's like 16 Thank you cards. I am so excited about that. Granted, They don't need to be completed until June but I want to get them all done way in advance so I can really put my heart into them instead of trying to put them together quickly and looking icky! I want to impress!
So with that being said, This creation is for our Junior Varsity Team Mom. I did it in our school colors(Green and Gold) so I really hope she likes it! I used the sketch challenge from Mojo Monday and it is a larger card being 8"X5", I need to make sure It is big enough for all of the team to sign. The stamp set that I used is from The Stamps of Life and is called &qu…

Here I have another challenge that I completed today. I always love The Sweet Stop challenges. They really get the creative juices flowing. On this one I also used an image from The Greeting Farm. It's called the Miss Anya Collection(3 piece set) I think they are one of my new Faves! So fun to color in with my Copics. I used my Spicas on the flowers that this adorable girl is holding in her basket. The DP I used is from Treehouse Memories. The flower is a from Prima and I added a gem in purple to the glittery flower. The sentiment is also fromThe Greeting farm.(My Guy Ian) I also embossed the purple base with my D'vine swirl EF.I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I enjoy creating them! I'll be seeing you all real soon with another completed challenge I'm sure!

Hello all, Here it is, another great sketch challenge from Friday Sketchers, This one was really fun and I am so excited I got to use one of my new stamps that I just got from The Greeting Farm. I colored her in with my copics and I added some shimmerz onto the flowers in her basket. Isn't she purty? The DP I used is from My Minds Eye from "Pretty Please" Spring pack. I also used my Nestie in "Labels One"

Cupcake Craft Challenge

This weeks challenge over at Cupcake Craft Challenge was to create something with flowers on it! Well, This spring card was perfect for this challenge. This is the Tris shutter fold card. I have made one of these before but it didnt turn out quiet as nice as this one turned out. I am really happy with it. For the challenge, you are to use flowers in your creation somewhere. It could be flower stamps, paper flowers, any kinda flowers. So that is what I did. A couple of the flowers that I used My Stampin Up! demo Gina punched out of felt. Vary cool idea! Thank you Gina!!!The stamped image is from Stampendous and says "Happy Spring"I colored it in with my Copics,spicas and gelly pens. The DP is Cloud 9 design. I hope you enjoy my creation!

This is an absolutely adorable image and her name is Emma. The sentiment I used is from Stampin Up! and is called Whimsical Words. Enjoy my take on the sketch challenge and come back soon!!

Sketch Saturday challenge

Image
Hello all, First let me say, I am feeling soooo much better after the cortisone shots as 1 of the 2 cortisone shots I got actually helped sooooo much, I cant even tell you how nice it feels, but the 2nd. shot did not help so much so I am thinkin I am going to have to possibly get another shot but that's OK, I just want to get better and get my butt back to work. I also want to thank those that left me messages to wish me well. It made me feel so good and to know that you all that love this craft as much as I do understood my frustration with not being able to play! So with that being said, Here is a challenge that I completed last night. It took me quiet a while to complete it only using my left hand for the majority (except for the coloring with my Copics) of it I am pretty impressed with the outcome! This challenge is from Sketch Saturday.
These are the supplies I used.
Stamp is from Penny Black "Easter Goddess"
DP is Tree house Memories"Thats all she wrote" …

I am actually trying to type as much as i CAN WITH MY LEFT HAD AND LET ME TELL YOU,(oops, sorry that is in caps, I don't feel like re typing it in lower case) it's not too easy so excuse the typos. You don't know how bummed this makes me. I love to do challenges and I cant do them, sniff! sniff! pout! pout! I will however try to take a look around and find some blog candy that is out there in blogger land and share what I find, I feel like if I don't post to my blog for a long period of time, I get totally bummed. I miss you all so much and all the wonderful challenges and great friends that I have out there in blogger land. Do I sound depressed? I think I am, I have been off of work for 30 days now trying to get my elbow and wrist into tip top shape to get back to work and to…
