SS 462: Little Friends


It's another Saturday and that means that there is a brand new challenge over on the Sketch Saturday blog.  I don't know about you, but I am SO glad that the weekend is here!

This week we welcome a new sponsor: Crafty Sentiments Design.  She is generously offering 3 free digital images to our winner.  The images are super sweet;  I'm using her darling image: Little Friends.

Be sure and stop by the Sketch Saturday blog and check out all the other DT cards.

So glad that you stopped by.

SSS510: "W(h)ining A Bit"


Today I'm avoiding the piles of laundry that need folding by crafting (I say that like it's a surprise that I'm avoiding the laundry pile!)  I still need a few birthday cards so I decided to join in the sketch challenge over on the Catch The Bug blog.  I DO like a good sketch.

I'm also joining in the Wine challenge over on the Dragonfly Journey site.

Stay warm Colorado peeps.

Gerda Steiner Progressive


Six days left in the school year and we have snow predicted for tomorrow.  Is it terrible that I'm hoping that the district will burn a snow day and give us a day off tomorrow (we've got quite a few that are unused!)?!!  I'm still tuckered out from the graduation festivities last weekend.  I'm pretty sure that a bit of a sleep-in would take care of that!

And speaking of taking care of things, I banged out the card for the Gerda Steiner Progressive challenge that she has each month.  The May challenge was to use this sweet image, Flower's For You. Want to join in the fun?  Simply buy this one and make a project.  The next month's image will be yours for free.

I'm also using the sketch over on the Tuesday Morning Sketch site.  I LOVE when the sketches are simple and totally usable.

Tuesday Morning Sketches 402


I'm finishing up the last of my Mother's Day cards.  These are the last two.  This first one is headed off to my sister.  When I saw this sentiment from Riley, I knew that I had to have it ... who doesn't want a butt-load of wine?!!

I'm using Lovelle from Art Impressions and the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

For my second card, I used the sketch from the Sunday Stamps blog.  I dug out my Happy Hopper stamps to use for this card.

Happy Mother's Day to all moms out there.





SSW2-112: Cute As A Button


Happy Wednesday friends.

9 days of school left in this year ... not that I'm counting (OK, I'm totally counting) I'm pretty excited to not make lunches for a few months!

It's time for another challenge over on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 blog.  This fortnight we have a new sponsor; it's Cute As A Button.

I hope that you have time to join in the fun this challenge.

Sketch Saturday 462


Happy Saturday everyone.

I was beginning to doubt that I would make it, honestly.  What a long week!!  But here we are, ready to enjoy TWO days of sleeping in and doing nothing.

I thought I would share my Saturday creation for Sketch Saturday.  This week we have a new sponsor: Paper Nest Dolls.  She is offering our winner 3 digital images of their choice.  Cool.  We hope you have time to join in the fun.

More Cards ... Really, I Suck at Housework



It suddenly occurred to me that other people (you know, other than me) would be celebrating Mother's Day and I thought, "hey" ... maybe I ought to send cards.  Yikes.  I suddenly need 6 cards to send out.  So here is one ... five more to go.

I used the sketch over on the Catch The Bug site.  I also used this new Bugaboo image.  Super cute!

And then, my hubby's friend at work at a heart attack over the weekend.   (insert ANOTHER "yikes" here!)  Fortunately he got to the hospital in the nick of time so he will be fine. But suddenly we needed a card for him too.  I used the "Interactive" theme over on the Pile It On blog.  I love the little "chill pills" in the shaker part of the card.  It is soo fun to make shaker cards!
