Monday eek

Good evening, the end of another work day and I am tired. I so enjoyed Thanksgiving with my family that I didn't want to come back to work today but I have to work to keep my hobby of crafting so here I created a quick card tonight with the Sweet Sunday Sketch. I have so many more Christmas cards that need to be done and in the mail. I use to be good and have them mailed out the first week of December (key word USE TO) lol any who this is my simple card for tonight. I used stamps of Life snowman die for this image and used some of that terrible glitter paper from Target or Walmart. Stamp is from CTMH along with some home made dots  

off to bed got to be on the road all day tomorrow for a meeting out of town.

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

Good morning, I was playing with my Tim Holtz distress pens that have been in my room for over a year and never touch (I know sad right) well I pulled out a old stamp from CTMH Lovely Lily on water paper not my fav but at least I can say I did you the distress pens and the stamp set. 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

Thinking of you

Good evening, I am dropping in with a quick post. My nephew is away in college and today I am sending him out a goodie box and I needed a quick card to include in it. I followed the sketch over at Paper Crew Challenge I do love doing these simple sketches for a quick card and using my stamps that have never been used. I used a pattern stamp from CTMH and the sentiment came from an old company Pink by Design? and a studio G dollar stamp for the star

Last of my Thanksgiving cards

I can't believe I did this to myself again. I wanted to have all my Thanksgiving cards out the first week of Nov well that didn't happen. I just finished the last card tonight and here is the basket that will go postal in the morning. I have actually trimmed off a good handful from my list so this was a little better but bad that I waited so long. 

I used several sketches an several 6x6 pads and stamps for the cards that I will be showing you.

the first three cards are from the sketch from a blog The best things in life are Pink and I will be using this for my Christmas cards as well. 

I am so proud of myself for pulling out things from my every lasting stash. I got those dew drops the first yr I started scraping and those buttons were for a challenge over at Die Cut Divas and they have been in my stash for every.

These last cards I used my ink jet printer and went online to find my images and then ran them through the lamina tor and then a bronze deco foil. This first card is for my daughter if you remember the grandson that we lost they collect sock monkeys for him while he was here and continue to collect them. So I am sure she will love this card even though he is still very much missed we know he was a blessing in that short time we had him.

you really need to see these cards to see how the bronze is popping off

I will leave the blogs that I will be posting several of the cards to

Thursday Birthday Wishes

Good evening, I need to make some quick Birthday cards tonight so they can go postal in the morning. I am using Mojo Monday sketch 422 for the first card. I used a 6x6 I picked up at Tuesday Morning from Ki called Playlist....I thought it had a birthday look to it. I used the stamp from S&P company and the resin flowers are from My Style Stamps which happen to be on clearance right now for $.69 I will have to order some more. 

The inside stamp is an old one from clear stamps no longer in business

I am really getting a kick out of using my stash here lately.

This card I used the same paper pad. The stamps are from CTMH with the Artiste bundle. It is going to my daughters boyfriend and I think it looks masculine. I embossed the cupcake and the Oh Happy Day. The little boy tie is also from CTMH

stamp is from that same CTMH stamp.

I will also link this card to Jo's Scrap Shack

Sweet Sunday Sketch

Good morning, another wonderful sketch I followed was on Sweet Sunday Sketch 293 for a card for a friends birthday that is this week and this card will make it on time. I am so proud of myself just pray that my mojo keep going. I pulled out crate paper Note & things and I pulled out a old stamp set from CTMH called Love Blooms and added some wink of steller to it. I pulled out a Stamps of Life die and stamp for the Happy Birthday and some want to bling for the black bling.

The inside was another one of Stamps of Life and CTMH Love Blooms and I just love how this one came out.

Happy Birthday Uncle Kevon

Happy Sunday, I just hate that the weekend goes by so fast and at the end of it is when my crafty mojo wants to come home. I didn't do anything crafty at all but clean my craft desks. The plan was to craft all day after church but instead I sat on the couch with hubby and watched TV :( oh well I did manage to get my Uncle's card done so it will go postal in the morning and out on time. I remember a video that May May did on youtube about a watch card. So I went and pulled it up but I didn't follow her layout I saw one on pinterest I liked so I used it to scrap lift my card. I used Bo Bunny Somewhere in Time 6x6 paper pack and the Darice clock embossing folder to complete my card.  

I will link this to the blog Hiding in My Craftroom 223
