It's Wednesday already, time is just going by way too fast and the list of things to do is growing! More mild temps in the forecast again today. Today I am sharing another holiday card that I created, I really need get my cards done so I can get them I the mail early. Today I am sharing a card that has been in my head for a while but I'm not sure if I like the outcome, looking at it now I see where I could have made some changes. I used a Darice snowflake embossing folder, cuts from the Joys of the Season and Christmas Cheer cricut cartridges and a Hero Arts sentiment stamp that I heat embossed. I am sharing this card for the Anything Goes Challenge #23 over at Cardz TV, the Snow Much Fun Challenge #331 over at Shopping Our Stash and the heat embossed challenge #290 from Use Your Stuff. Take care and have a wonderful Wednesday.
Hello Monday evening, nice temps in the forecast for the next few days; I originally meant to share this card on Tuesday but I hit post before scheduling it. Always so much to do and so little time it seems! I'm back today to share another holiday card that I created over the weekend, I think this may be my favorite so far! I used some of Dollar Tree linen cardstock for the base, a die for the deer and the background woods, and a TPC Studio stamp for the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment using the Delicata silvery shimmer ink pad, I wasn't really impressed although it was one of the must haves after seeing others use it! I also used some wink of stellar for the first time, can you see it on the deer? I'm sharing this card for the any holiday challenge #328 over at Hiding in my Craft Room and the anything goes challenge #22 over at Cardz TV. Take care and I hope you'll come back again soon.
Hello and happy Sunday, the holiday weekend is winding down and I must say I haven't done as much as I had planned! Oh well there's always today to try to get some things done after church. I am happy to share that I finally got to work on another LO. The sketch inspiration came from another one of the challenges posted on the Sketch N Scrap Bountiful Blessings FB online crop. I used papers from the Authentique Accomplished Collection paper pad, embellishments and lettering from my stash. I cut the camera with my SLICE, I had a hard time taking a picture of the LO, it really looks better in person! Take care and I hope you will come back soon.

Another holiday card done, I just might get my cards done and in the mail on time this year! Take care, hope you are still creating cherished memories with family and friends.

I hope knowing that others are lifting them in prayer provides some comfort. Thank you for your visit and I hope you'll come back again soon.
Hello happy Monday, the weekend just isn't long enough. A busy home and work life makes it hard to have a lot of downtime sometimes. I am trying to get in the holiday mood but for some reason I haven't felt up to it. I am back today to share another super simple card that I put together using the November card sketch from Stick it Down. The pattern paper came from the American Crafts Hot Cocoa 6x6 paper pad and I cut the bow with one of my unbranded dies, stamped the sentiment and this card was done! Wishing you and yours a wonderful week, hope you will visit again soon.
Happy Saturday, cold outside just doing a quick driveby post. Today I am sharing a card that I put together using sketch #109 from Sketch N Scrap. I was lucky enough to be randomly selected to win their monthly prize for one of the cards that I shared last month! Today's card came together rather nicely as I continue to shop my stash of supplies. The pattern paper is from Recollections, the doily from the JoAnns ms sparkle & co line and I cut the tree using my Silhouette cameo. The sentiment stamp is from the CTMH Artfully Sent cricut bundle; a gift from Cheryl, another one of my scrappin' besties! I am on a roll so I hope you'll come back again soon.
Hello and happy Friday, looking forward to some downtime this weekend or rather maybe not. Next week is homecoming at my daughter's school and we still need to shop. Oh well such is life we just have to make the best of it. Today I am sharing a card that I made using inspiration from this month's sketch #342 over at Die Cuttin' Divas. I used papers from the Pebbles Garden Party 6x6 paper pad, stamped, heat embossed and cut the flowers using a stamp and die set that I picked up on clearance from Hobby Lobby sometime ago. I threw away the packaging but I think it may have been something exclusive to HL by Richard Garay, the founder of Fun Stampers Journey. A few enamel dots and a stamped sentiment completed this card that will be going postal to one of the FB card angels. I will also share this card for the Anything Goes Challenge #20 over at Cardz TV. Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend.
Hello Thursday, more cold weather for us. Today I am sharing some cards that I created for the FB card angel group or rather it was requested by one of its members.

I used a of variety papers, stickers, die cut embellishments and stamps for the sentiments. I like how they came out and I was able to use some stuff from my stash, used the bike die and reindeer stamp for the first time! Take care and I hope you'll come back again soon.
