DCWV Challenge

 Good evening, tonight I needed to make a card for my sister in laws birthday Wednesday and this needs to go postal tomorrow to make it. So as I was looking thru my emails I saw this sketch over at DCWV and you know how I love a sketch. So the requirements was to use 75% DCWV and I did just that. I used The Gilded Paper for my main parts of the card. Then I used DCWV Holiday collection for my base paper then I cut the cute Holly Layer spellbinders die out in DCWV  cardstock Stack Glitzy Glitter paper. The stamp is an old one from S&P company.

Belated Christmas Wishes

I pray everyone had a bless Christmas. I meant to post this last night but after we got back from the in laws I was wore out and didn't post this. I made my son a gift card shaker pouch for his xbox cards. I followed along with Nursetara04 youtube video it was so easy. I even used some of those dollar tree stickers I had to have lol
 I even worked on my fauxdori entry, I am on the hunt for a letter cover for it since this one is my fav to use.

 Lastly today we had to run to the mall to take hubby phone in to the store and it was a Pandora shop right next to the Apple store and I have always wanted a Pandora bracelet so I took my Christmas money and started my journey......I told hubby that I was going to stop buying crafty things and buy a charm from here on out. (Wish me luck lol)

Happy Birthday Danita

Today is my girl Danita  birthday and I want to wish her the best year to come.....much love coming from the Montee's we love you girl and so glad we meet on the Cricut cruise 4 yrs ago.

For her card I did a Z fold using the Stamps of Life die and stamp. Funny thing Danita is the one that turned me on to a FB group and I managed to buy this set on that group and I just love it. I also used Stamps of Life pattern paper for the card. Along with some bling that has been in my stash from when hubby was working in Dallas. 

This sentiment is so true you are not getting older, your getting better.....Happy Birthday sis we love you and enjoy your day

Happy Saturday

Hello, today I managed to get the last of my cards completed that will go postal. I still have a few that I will hand out but I can get them tomorrow 

This first card I just love how it came out I used several spellbinders dies along withe the shiny dcwv paper. I colored the stamp from stamps of life and added some wink of steller to it but you can't tell. I used embossing powder for the sentiment.

This inside stamp is from CTMH

I love this one also I used some paper from last yr I believe Echo park and Anna Griffin die from last yr.

I had so much fun with this stamp here. I had to have it and thanks to my friend Treva for letting me know that it was back in stock. I used that black lacquer paint for the tires and the white lacquer for the headlights you have to see it in person. I managed to pull out my Spectrum Noir markers to color them in. I did spend way to much time on my scan and cut trying to cut the images and it was an epic fail so I had to hand cut the images.

I used the stamp from S&P no longer in business

Right now I am up in Kansas, my husbands Aunt past away and we are going to her home going service so I don't remember the names of the papers I have used on these cards but this one is from last yr a recollection 6x6 pad along with a sizzix die cut for the ornament.

Praying for you Julia

One of my good friends Julia, lost her Aunt on the 7th which was my Julia's birthday. I feel so sad for Julia but I know her Aunt is in a much better place of no pain. I know the words will not bring her comfort at this time but I do want her to know I am her for her if she needs a shoulder to cry on or just talk about the good times she has had with her Aunt.

I made this card using Anna Griffin products. I can't remember which folder I ran the light blue thru but the sending hugs and the flourish are both out of one of those box collections I bought awhile back.

Prayers going on to my friend and her family during this difficult time and the time ahead

Happy Birthday Linda

Christmas sketch cards

I have been so bad about posting my cards but I have tried to do a few a nite along with this week's challenges. This first one is from Fusion Card Challenge, stamp is from CTMH

This card I didn't use a sketch I ran that gold paper threw an embossing folder and the tree was a die cut I believe from Anna Griffin last yr. I bought the tiny word dies from Tim Holtz sizzix. 

This sketch is from Sweet  Sunday 298 

This one is Freshly Made Sketch 216

The last two were from mojo monday last week and I didn't get around to posting them. I am using those dies that I thought I just had to have and this one is one of my new favorites.

Lastly this was a cut that I had from last yr and why not use it for a quick card. I am hoping to be done with my cards this weekend and in the mail

Sunday Cards

Hello crafters, real quick post before I jump in the bed. I needed to make some cards for the crafty angel card on FB and you know me I used some sketches first one is from Mojo Monday 463 and right now the link isn't working for this sketch which is tall and skinny. I really like this card but on the first one I wasn't thinking and pulled out a 6x6 pad :(


This sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketch 329 Not sure which one of the pads I grabed for these cards because I had two of my grand children and I just scrapped while watching the wheels on the bus 1,000 times this weekend. So my brain is not working at all

First of my Christmas cards

I hope everyone had a bless Thanksgiving. I know I did. My cousin and her family came up and spent a few days with us. My little cousin has a school project due Tuesday and asked me to cut out her a few things so while I did that I thought might as well start on some Christmas cards so off to the sketches I went. 

Sorry for the lighting we are at the Kansas house and this old house isn't great at night 

This first card I used Sweet Sunday  I used Pbbles Winter Wonderland paper and a snowman embellishment I had in my stash.

This one is Tuesday Morning Sketch I used Heidi Swapp I picked up at Ross along with CTMH stamp

This one is Freshly Made Sketch I used BoBunny Altitude Collection. I used that Tuesday Morning Darice die to cut my start out of silver paper and added a gem along with a Stamps of Life stamp

This one is my favorite it is from Match The Sketch and shopping our stash with no stamping so I used the die from Stamps of Life for Blessing and another Darice snowflake die. I used BoBunny Altitude again

This last card is from Sketch and Scrap I used again BoBunny and the Anna Griffin die for Noel

We that is all for tonight I need to get to bed we will be off to the in laws in the morning so another long day.

Monday quick card

Good morning, some how I forgot to finish all the cards for the FB creative angels that I signed up for so this one was perfect for a real quick card. I followed along with Stampin' Celebration. I tell you what doing these simple sketches are really giving me back my mojo and helping me to move out or at least open up some new products that I just came seem to stop purchasing. I used the paper studio Be Bold be bright foiled sheets I just had to have after watching haul videos lol. I pulled out an old die from My Creative Time that I don't think I ever used before, which must be discontinued I don't see it on her website anymore. I used Pink Bow Ties stamp again that I just love 

because I am in a rush to get this in the mail I signed the inside but I wanted to show off that stamp as well from Pink Bow Ties

Wishing you Peace

The paper is another thing that was just sitting never open from Walmart colorbok Designer paper Carnival. I will be using this card for Freshly Made Sketch 213
