CPS- Card Sketch challenge

Good evening all. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving week. I am on break for the week because of the Thanksgiving Holiday then it's back to work for less than 3 weeks, then it's of for Christmas break for 2 and a half weeks. Gotta love working for the school district!!
So, because I have the whole week off, I can stay up as late as I wasn't creating. I love it when that happens. I have been in kind of a lull this week so hopefully this will get me on a roll. This challenge is from CPS-Card sketches. They always have great sketches to play with and this week was no exception. Basically my color scheme here is Blue and white. The stamp I used is from "Frosty" by Stampin Up! This is a really old set but I totally love this stamp set. Lots of things you can do with good ole Frosty!! I printed the sentiment off of my computer"warm winter wishes" and used modern label xtra large punch and my scallop oval punch.The DP is a no name?? Seriously, there was no man. manuf. name on it. but it is just snowflakes in blues and whites. It was perfect for my creation! I then punched some snowflakes with my Martha Stewart snowflake punch in Bashful blue.
Oh, and I added chunky glitter on the ground where frosty is standing. So, there you have it. My contribution to the CPS challenge. What do you think? I would love to hear your comments. Well, I am off to hopefully work on some more challenges, Maybe even some scrapbook pages. I am trying really hard to get caught up on my scrapbooking so you may notice, I have some new scrapbook challenge blogs and groups in my side bar. If you know of any really good Scrapbook challenge blogs, Please, let me know. I always love a good challenge!! I'll see you all real soon!!

Teacher Appreciation Card

Happy Saturday Night all. I don't have a challenge card to share with you all tonight, Just a creation that I made. My co worker needs 5 Teacher appreciation cards for her daughters teachers so she asked me if I would make them for her. Well, I will never ever turn down a request to make cards. I went out to one of our only scrapbook stores in my area and was on a search for some apple paper. Well, This is what I found. It is from We r Memory Keepers and has blue and green and orange apples with glitter on them. Really pretty paper.The Thank you sentiment is from Inkadinkado. The apple is from one of the Studio G line. My color scheme is Buckaroo blue,Basic Black,Riding hood red and Pear pizzaz. I used my Swiss dots embossing folder on the basic black and also on the buckaroo blue that I also punched with my scallop corner punch. SO, that's pretty much all I have for you all tonight. I will see you all real soon! Have a wonderful night!!

2 more challenges, DONE!

Hello everyone. So Sorry that I have been MIA for a bit. I have had a crazy busy week even though we had a 4 day weekend, I had my sons 2 Birthday parties to take care of. We always do one family party and 1 friends party so I had to do some cooking for both so I have spent alot of time in the kitchen for the past 3 days. Whew, I'm pooped!

So, onto the challenges. The first is for Sketch Saturday, Oh how I love the sketch Saturday challenges. One of my total favorites.
The next challenge was from
Color Throwdown. Now, when it comes to color challenges, Color throwdown is the greatest! I am horrible with colors so this is an awesome tool for me. The colors I was to work with are Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede & Kraft.

So, did you notice the flowers I made? They are from the Stampin Up! scallop circle punch. I saw these done on You Tube by Scrappingaway. What a great and really easy tutorial. Go and check it out. I think the flowers made a perfect accent to my creation. I used 2 embossing folders on this creation as well, Swiss dots(which is my fave EF) and D'vine swirl. The image/sentiment is from Inkadinkadoo "Warm Holiday Wishes" and nested in 2 layers of "Labels 4" Nestabilities.For the final touch I added some buttons(from my stash) into the middle of the flowers. So, There you have it. I hope you enjoy my creation. I will hopefully be back real soon to share some more with you all. Thanks so much for stopping by and hope to see you all soon!

Nothing creative, Just some sharing

This is Brandon and his girlfriend Sabrina. Isn't she just adorable?
Getting ready to go

In front of their High School

Brandon and I

Hello everyone, I don't have any creations to share with you all tonight, I just wanted to share some photos of my sons Homecoming. I cant believe he is a Sophomore already. He is my only one so I want him to stay little forever but since that cant happen, I just have to embrace his growing up and try and savor every mom and son moment. This was kind of one of those moments as he was getting ready for the Homecoming dance. It really makes me sad at how fast they grow. Not to mention, He is one of those boys that gets embarresed by his parents(as if we weren't cool or something) Which makes his father and I do really silly things in front of his friends even more LOL! So, enough of my jibber jabber, Onto the pictures. Oh, he is just too handsome!
