Hey everyone! Sorry I’ve been absent. I have been at the farm and as you know, limited internet and it’s hard to upload using my phone. I’m back now and raring to go with some new projects for you.

Here is our latest challenge at the Make the Cards Challenge Blog. It’s a color challenge for you and I really like this color combo!

I took a few bits and bobs to the farm to scrapbook with, but I’ll admit, I didn’t actually do a lot. I mostly read…LOL

I did make this card while I was there, though. I have a big tin with a bunch of die cuts in it, and found these flowers which had the right colors. I also took a bunch of pre-embossed sheets and so this one with leaves fit perfect. I always have some sentiments on hand in various colors because you just never know when you will need one! I also decided to go with a 4.5 x4.5 sized card, just to shake it up, again being inspired by the shape of that color challenge block.

I hope you like the card and be sure to stop by the blog to see what the rest of the DT has created for you and to play along with us. Can’t wait to see what you create!

Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by to see today’s Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch for this week.

Debbie created this little beauty

I actually put this card together at the farm last week with those limited supplies that I brought along, remember? Not too bad if I do say so myself.

The DP is from Crate Paper and is a 6×6 pack that I have been working through for awhile now. I already had the image in my die cut tin. I didn’t have any shaped die cuts so I had to cut the oval out by hand which is a bit rough but gives it some visual interest right? 🙂 All the die cuts I had in my tin so that was ok, but I didn’t have any ribbon or twine! So I managed to find some kite string in the trailer and used that!! I took a little bit and colored it with an ink pad for the brown bow, just to set it off a little bit.

I think this turned out really well considering what I had to work with..LOL. Now be sure to stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for you and as always, don’t forget to play along with us.

So I wanted to share this card with you from last week’s sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. You can’t link up as our new sketch comes out tomorrow but I really like how this one turned out.

I was at my farm in Saskatchewan when I did my card for this, and I only took a few supplies….a tin of die cuts, a few 6×6 paper packs, a couple of SCT samplers, some inks, copics and a few stamps. The only thing was, I couldn’t upload to my blog from my phone. I had to email my projects in and then the team lead would post to the challenge blog. Unfortunately I couldn’t get mine to show up. So I figured now may as well work right?

That envelope through me off at first. I didn’t have any with me so I decided just to draw one free hand. Now if you decide to use this sketch for something, remember you could use any shape there really, or a tag!

I used one of my samplers for this DP and then added these flowers that you’ve seen me use quite a few times from my tin. I also added a small sentiment and some gold hearts. The envelope I just cut free hand from some pink cardstock. I think these were PinkFresh flowers and there are just so many and I’ve used them for so many projects and I still have some, so be prepared for them to show up again! 😉

Hi! It is time for our new challenge at Make the Card Challenges! This one is great (they all are right?! )

This week we are going for a simple technique…

Oh this has so many possibilities! For me, I had this embossing folder/die set that I hadn’t used in awhile and so I wanted to focus on that and made a shaker card. The sentiment is from Ink Road Stamps and is a quote from one of my favorite movies of all time – Pride and Prejudice!

I love the red/white/black combo so I added some pink/white/red sequins in my shaker and some glitter red hearts to give it a bit of pop.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to play along with us at MTCC . The DT has some awesome projects for you to check out and inspire you and you’ll find the link to play along!

Hello friends! Here is this week’s sketch for you on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog!

This is the last little bit from my SCT sampler! I used one of the die cuts included with the sampler and then I added a sentiment from one of dies in my stash. Some black Nuevo drops and we are good to go.

Be sure to stop by the blog and see the great creations from the rest of the DT.

Hey Gang! Mosey on over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog where you will find this week’s awesome sketch and a spot to enter your creation!

This sketch shows circles but really, you could use any shape that you wanted to for that element!

Blew the dust off of my flowers and brads for this one! I also can’t remember the last time I used some ribbon on a project either! I am almost done working through the Harvest Delight Collection from Creative Memories that was in my October 2019 SCT sampler. I used a punch for the leaves and the flowers and brads were just from my stash. A quick and easy card from a perfect sketch! Come play along with us!

Make the Cards Challenge #59

Hi everyone! Today marks my first card for the Make the Cards Challenge Design Team and I am super excited! We have a sketch for this week’s challenge!

It’s super simple and yet you can really play on it. For myself, I wanted to keep it pretty clean and simple (something I struggle with to be sure) so I went with some glitter! **GASP** Ya I have a love/hate relationship wit the stuff, but I thought it would be great for the stripes. I went with some bright, fun rainbow colors and then added a sentiment that I got my Crafty Creations Too group.

I used 2 different sized strips of double sided tape which makes it super easy to add the glitter. The stars are from Studio Katia. I love the colors on this and think it’s a fun birthday card for that special person.

Be sure to head over to the blog and check out the rest of the DT creations and of course to play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello all! It’s Tuesday Tuesday. Skip on over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and you will find this week’s awesome sketch to play along with!

A great, fun sketch and easy to play along with.

Still playing with my October 2019 SCT sampler, I used papers from the Pebbles This is Family Collection. I also used the puffy sentiment sticker that came in my sample and I added some gold enamel dots from my collection. The flowers I’m sure you recognize from earlier cards. I had a lot of these flowers printed off and they make great focal points for cards!

Be sure to stop by our blog and see the rest of the great cards from the design team using this week’s sketch and I hope you will play along with us too!

Dragonfly Dreams: July

It’s time for our July challenge at Dragonfly Dreams everyone! Our theme for the month is Indoor Activities/Hobbies.

I was at first stumped at what to do for this one, but then I realized that there is a lot that this could entail….board games, crafting, baking/cooking, watching movies or tv…lots really.

I chose to go with one of my son’s favorite activities…LEGOS! I’m sure a lot of moms can relate!

I have this Stampin Up set called Boys will Be Boys and it was perfect for this one.

I stamped the image in various directions quite a few times and then colored it with some copics just in some basic colors. It’s hard to se but some of them are also highlighted with some Glossy Accents (the ones that look a bit darker 😉 ). A perfect card for that boy in your life.

Make sure you drop by the blog and see the rest of the projects from the DT, they have a great variety for you!
