Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone.  I had been asked if my card could be used for today's sketch challenge and of course I said yes!  The stamp is a Whipper Snapper, my fav stamp company as most of you know.  I used Copics and colored pencils to color it.  I sure hope you get some use out of the sketch.  Happy card making.

ODBD August Challenge

Here is my card for the August ODBD challenge.  I just happened to buy a new star paper so it was perfect for the challenge.  It's a little masculine which is always needed.  

I was working on fall cards because I was in the mood for those, but then the news hit that we don't need as many.  My plan was that I was going to make 25 fall cards and 25 Christmas cards, so I should be ok.   It's a good thing that some of our troops are heading home.

Memorial Day 2014 Blog Hop

Happy Memorial Day Weekend everyone!  I sure hope that you're enjoying the hop so far.  There's so much great inspiration out there!  Well my card is from my favorite stamp company, Whipper Snapper.  I think if I posted a card not made with a Whipper, people would be disappointed.  The little stars are what popped out of the die.  I didn't want to waste anything.  I used Copics and colored pencils to color it.  I'll probably use it for an Any Hero Card.  Have a great and safe weekend!

ODBD Challenge for April

Here's a little stamp that I picked up at a rummage sale, there were 4 different ones to the set and this is the butterfly one.  Now you all know I'm not the Clean and Simple type card maker  but these stamps are perfect for that.  I used up a scrap piece of ribbon and paper in the process!

Sketch Challenge 214

Well it's been a while since I've updated my blog.  Here's my card for Sunday's sketch challenge and since we need to get some Father's Day cards in, this fit perfectly.  As I've been doing with my cards since the beginning of the year, I am trying to use up old paper I've had hanging around for a while.  The blue paper at the bottom is my something old.

ODBD Challenge

Hi all, here is my card for the October Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge.  I wanted to use up some patterned paper and I finished this argyle pattern up, yeah!  So it's kind of masculine, another yeah!  I got 3 cards out of the leftovers. 
I have some sad news since my last post, my little Stella Marie (to the right), I had to say goodbye to her after 17 years.  She was my baby and I miss her a lot.  She will stay on my blog forever.
