A Friday Sketchers challenge

Hello everyone, Wow, Did Christmas just come and go or what? I knew it would. I wish Christmas Day would last more than 24 hrs. Just to be able to visit with and hang out with the family more. The only one thing that makes me ok with Christmas being over is Valentines day is just around the corner. Now that is my most Fave Holiday. I love the pinks and reds and hearts and glittery things. I feel so much more creative when it comes to making my Valentines day cards. So, from now until the end of Jan. you will see lots and lots of pink!

This is my first Valentine challenge card that I have made this year. This sketch challenge is from Friday Sketchers. They always have great sketches and this one was no exception. I went to the scrapbook store today and did a little stocking up on red and pink and glittery papers and just cant wait to use them. On this creation, This DP is from Bo Bunny "Crazy love fudge & Flowers. Pink and brown are the best combo and this is what this DP has. Lots of pink and Brown. the colors I used for this are Pretty in pink, Choc. chip, so saffron and smooth white card stock. I embossed the so saffron piece with my Tim Holtz flower vine embossing folder. The "All my love" stamp I used is a Heidi Swapp clear stamp.

There you have it. Another sketch challenge down.

I will be sharing more Valentines creations with you all real soon. Don't forget to let me know you were here cause I love to hear from my friends!!

2 Challenges,1 Creation

Wow, Only 3 more days until Christmas. Where does the time go? Well, I think this will be my last Holiday card for this year. This card was created for 2 challenges. The color Throwdown and Our creative corner. For The color throwdown, The colors are Riding hood red, Choc. chip/Kraft & Cert. celery. These colors work well together for the Holiday Theme. For "Our creative corner" the challenge was to add color and depth to dry embossing. For this, I used my brayer to add Choc. chip ink to my "Swiss dots" embossing folder. That is my most fave EF so I just had to use that one. Not only did I add it to the riding hood red Top note, I also added it to the punched corners. I also embossed the center cert celery "Labels one" nestie with D'vine swirls and once again used my brayer and colored the swirls with choc. chip.
There you have it. 1 creation, 2 challenges.
I hope you enjoy my creation !
I wish all of my blogging friends out there a wonderful Holiday Season and I will see you all real soon!!

Charisma Cardz challenge with a Twist


Hello all, It's been a while since I have created anything to share with you all and I have missed you all so much so here I am with a cool challenge creation that I created for Crazy for Challenges & Charisma Cardz Challenges For Charisma Cardz, there is a twist. No image, only sentiment. Sooo, this is what I have come up with. This was easy as I didn't have to do any coloring or shading, I just needed to find a sentiment that would take up the space on such a large card. This is a square 5 1/4 X 5 1/4. I love this DP that I used, It is from "October Afternoon" and is called Fill the stockings. I love this DP as there are so many colors on the backside that I can coordinate it with many other papers! I like it when that happens. I am so bad with putting colors together.
I used my Nestabilities Beaded circles ad my smaller scallop circle to place the sentiment on. I also punched some of the peppermint candy looking circle out of the DP an added them around the sentiment to add a little something around the sentiment. The base of the card is in White and the other card stocks included are Chocolate Chip & Green Galore. The sentiment is stamped in choc. chip.

The sentiment "A very Merry Christmas to you" is from Stampin Up "Best Yet" stamp set.
So, there you have it. I hope you enjoy my creation and please don't forget to let me know that you were here. I will see you all real soon!
