Stars & Stamps - Sketch Challenge 91

Good Evening --

Hope everyone had a good day.  I've been busy bee -- a little bit of crafty things then baking, dinner cooked and kitchen cleaned up now a quick post to my blog to get a couple of the cards I did today.   My pictures seem a little fuzzy -- I'll have to try and take pictures during daylight and see if that makes any difference.

The card with the bird - the DP is from DCWV - The Four Seasons Stack and the sentiment is from Hot Off the Press.  I also added 3 little Blue Jay feathers I found on this summer travels.

The card with the flower - I used DP from Colorbook Pattern Pack, the sentiment is from Impression Obsession.  I added some lace, green and pink ribbon then added 3 pearls from Martha Stewart.

Have a great week -- and thanks for stoppin' in.

Stars & Stamps Masculine Card Challenge

Good afternoon -- Thought I would try my hand at this today -- I need to make some more cards for OWH and some personal cards for birthdays etc.  This card I made reminds me of when we lived in Idaho.  I have a friend with a birthday coming up who lives in Idaho -- I am going to send him one -- hope he enjoys it.

I used generic kraft paper and the DP paper is from a Four Season Stack from DCWV.   The digital image is from Piddix and the Sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Have a great afternoon and evening!

Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge #90

Good Sunday afternoon -- thought I would get this posted before I stopped for some lunch.   It is a beautiful day in the desert -- I'll have to go outside before I work on more cards.

This is a very easy sketch -- I am going to make some more cards today using this sketch and more images from Piddix (I'll put those on my blog later today).  I want to get my cards off to OWH this next week -- the deadline for their Christmas Cards is fast approaching -- October 31st.  

On my card today I used a digital image from Piddix and the green and holly paper are from Basicgrey their Wassail Greetings.    The sentiment is from Hot off the Press.  I added two black gems from Jolee's.

Thanks for stopping in -- have a great day!

I finished a couple more cards -- thought I would post these as well

This card I used a digital image from Piddix.  The paper is from Minds Eye their Merry Days of Christmas and the sentiment is from Hot Off the Press.  The snowflakes for both cards are from a Martha Stewart punch.  The gems are from Jolee's.

This card I used a church stamp from an old stamp set that my sister gave me this summer.  Thought she might enjoy knowing that they are being used.  This stamp set is from Personal Stamp Exchange from 1993.  I liked it because I could use my snowflake punch again.  I think I am stuck on snow flakes and snowmen this year.  :-)   The paper is from Mind's Eye - Merry Days of Christmas and the sentiment is from Hot Off the Press.

Well -- I have to switch gears and go work on some Halloween Projects -- so I hope you have a fun rest-of-the-day!

OWH Sketch Challenge 89

Good Sunday afternoon -- it has been awhile since I've posted a card.  It has been a fun but busy summer.  It feels good to get back to participating in the Sunday Sketch Challenges.

I felt like doing something with snow but then I realized I don't have any snowman stamps or digis soooo I sketched a snowman to use on todays card.  Then I wanted to outline him in silver and low and behold -- not a silver marker, gel pen or anything so I decided just to color his carrot nose and let it go at that.  I used paper from  a DCWV Christmas paper pad that a neighbor gave me last year.  (She knew I like to make cards -- very lucky to have nice neighbors.)  To make the snowflakes I used a punch from Martha Stewart. I used silver ribbon for the three strips.

Since I've been home I have done a couple of other cards for the state digi challenges but never posted them so I'll post them now too.

Enjoy the rest of today -- and thanks for stoppin' in.

I am so tickled Sandy was able to complete the Nevada Digi.  I'll be taking the Any Hero Sheets over to the school district and show them what they helped accomplish.  The Nevada Digi Card I tried to incorporate the state colors -- blue and silver.  It turned out to be kind of a plain but that's okay --  I am going to use this for an Any Hero Card.   I'll try my had at another one.

This was another state digi Sandy completed -- I did this one in Utah's colors too.  Yellow and black.  I'll use this one for an Any Hero Card too.
