Christmas Card Challenges Week #52

Hi everyone!

Can you believe it?! We've made it to the last week of Christmas Card challenges for this year! Wow, I'm so excited, and have been inspired every week by everyone's cards. It is truly a pleasure to be on such a great team, with such a wonderful "head elf". I love that I have accumulated so many cards, and have zero stress at this time of year. There will be a few announcements on the 1st of December, so be sure to head over to the challenge blog to see what's up for 2011.

Now, onto this weeks challenge, a sketch. Peggy has been a blessing in helping us create the sketches for this year, and I'm sure you'll enjoy the ones she's created for us for the next year as well. For this weeks challenge, click HERE.

I really like how my card turned out. I had never thought to stamp the sentiment onto patterned paper before, but think I'll do that more often now. The sketch allowed for me to use some new goodies I've had in my stash as well. I like the ease of use of Tim Holtz's tissue tape, and the felt Christmas tree border adds a nice touch as well. I finished it off with a modified MFT snowflake, and made it sparkly with stickles, even though you can't see it that well. All in all, it's a very pretty card, in reall life, and I'm sure someone in my office will buy it. lol

I am truly blessed to have finished the year, and to have had your support. I hope you'll head over to the challenge blog to see what my friends have created for you, and to see who our final guest designer for this year is. Don't forget to keep an eye on the challenge blog for our announcement on the 1st as well!

Much love,

Twisted Sketches #35

Hi ya'll!

This is my second post of the day.  Please scroll down for my US project.

I have another Twisted Sketches card to share with you today.  I love these sketches!  The twist is layer, any how, any way.  For this weeks challenge, click HERE.

I've been using my Spanish sentiment stamps a lot lately.  Pensando en ti means thinking of you, by the way.  I have several co-workers who have requested cards, so I figured I'd start putting them to better use.  I love how this card turned out.  I wanted simple, but with several layers.  I think I accomplished it pretty well.

I hope you'll head over to the Twisted Sketches blog to see what everyone else has created for today.  Again, I'm totally blown away by how amazing these ladies are.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Unscripted Sketches #83

Hi everyone!

Yay, it's Saturday!  I scheduled this post so that I could sleep in this morning.  I love it when I've got everything together so I can do that. lol  I have another Unscripted Sketches project for you.  For this weeks sketch challenge, click HERE.

I went with something different for today's sketch.  I found it a bit difficult at first, but once I figured out what kind of project I wanted to create, it actually came together quite quickly.  By the time you're reading this, it has already been purchased. lol  I made the mistake (or good move) of taking some of my extra cards and projects to work a couple weeks ago, and boy did my co-workers buy them up quickly.  They've even asked that I take any extras I continue to have to work so they can buy them too.  I currently have zero stash of anything anymore. lol  I'm definitely not complaining, more in shock, that they all sold.  Anyway, I filled the gift bag with chocolates and peppermints and it was a big hit.

I hope you'll head over to the US blog to see what my friends have created for you today.  They're all pretty amazing. 

Have a great day!

Christmas Card Challenge Week #51

Wow, there's only one week left for this years challenges.  As I was creating this card, and it's really amazing how wonderful it is, feeling like I've accomplished something.  I have consistently created a Christmas card just about every week this last year.  How helpful these challenges are for me.  I'm so happy to be a part of it.  So, enough rambling.  For this weeks challenge, click HERE.

Aren't these mittens adorable?  My friend, SuzyQ, let me borrow her stamp so that I could use it for this weeks challenge.  I paper pieced them and then matted them on several Nesties.  At first, I didn't like this color combo, at all.  But after working it out, I really like these colors together, for a non-traditional look.  What do you think? 

I hope you'll head over to see who our wonderful guest designer is and to check out what my friends have put together for you today.  So tell me, how many Christmas cards have you made this year already? ;)

Much love!

Unscripted Sketches #82

Yay for Saturday, again!  Are you enjoying your weekend?  It's finally starting to cool off again here in the DFW area.  I love the fall!  So, I have another Unscripted Sketches project for you today.  For this weeks sketch challenge, click HERE.

I love the simplicty of this card.  I was able to whip it up in no time too.  The felt snowflake is my favorite thing on this card.  I like how the bling adds just the right touch of something. 

I hope you'll head over to the US blog to see the other wonderful projects posted.  Hopefully, you'll get to play along as well.

New Blog & Look, Same Old Me :)

Hi everyone!

Gmail was being weird about allowing me to have two email addresses and how I could use my blog, so I decided it was time to switch everything over to one email and one blog address.  I hope you'll take the time to sign up and follow me again, and I hope that this isn't too much of an inconvenience for everyone.  I know this is going to be the right thing to do, in the long run.

I'll be back on Saturday with my next DT post.

Have a great day!
