Ooohhh check out this great theme for this week’s challenge at Make the Cards Challenge blog!

I’m gonna be honest, it’s been awhile since I’ve used Washi for anything so I was pretty happy for this challenge.

I finally cracked open this strawberry stamp set that I got from Lawn Fawn along with the Lawn Fawn Basket die. I also added some of their dot paper to go with my dotted washi border. I just did some basic coloring with my copics and I added some leaves from another die set I had.

This is a super easy challenge and I’m sure you have some washi that is in a drawer in your stash….bust it open, go for one that you’ve not used yet – plan your card around it….it’s a fun challenge to give yourself!

I’ll be stopping by your blog to see what fun you have come up with!

Are you ready for this week’s challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches?

We’ve got an easy sketch but a twist this go round is to add an animal to it!

I found a Simple Stories fall collection in one of my boxes and I thought that this little hedgehog was adorable. So I used some of the stickers from the sheet to go with it for that little blue border and the sentiment. I also added just a few enamel dots for a little bit of color.

Make sure you head to the blog to play along with us this week. Can’t wait to see what critters you have for us to see!

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!

Hey everyone! Thanks for your patience! It’s been a busy 10 days! We had to get a new hard drive for the computer and so I lost a lot of programs, pictures and apps that I use for my crafting. 😦

It’s also been the last week or so of school for my son, not to mention planning his 13th birthday on the 4th of July and then work being busy. So ya, not a lot of crafting time really over the last little bit.

I hope to get some stuff done in the next few days as I’m going away from the 30th to the 3rd for my son’s birthday.

On to this week’s sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches!

Full disclosure, I found this one a bit tricky with that triangle and it took me a couple of tries, but I figured it out!

Here’s what I have for you!

Using my October 2019 SCT sampler, I picked out some papers and embellishments I got of the Creative Memories Harvest Delight collection. I really loved the colors in this collection and those pretty flowers.

My sampler had some sentiment cards in it, so it was perfect for this big focal point of the card.

The design team has some amazing projects for you (again!) to check out using this sketch. Drop by the blog and leave them some love. We hope you will play along with us too!

UYS/ Double Trouble Collaboration

Hi all!

We are a week early with the Use Your Stuff challenge as we are collaborating with Double Trouble Challenges as well! Our theme at Use Your Stuff is Fall/Autumn and it falls right in line with their challenges, so if you are entering ours, be sure to enter theirs too!

This is a card that I created as part of my Crop & Create Cardmaking weekend hosted by Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine. The leaves and pumpkin are dies from Simon Says Stamp and I created them using some tear tape from ThermoWeb and some glitter. I covered the cardstock with the tear tap and then spread the glitter on it and then die cut! I can’t even remember the last time I used glitter. I used a leafy embossing folder from I believe Cuttlebug and then just some enamel dots from my stash. The THANKS sentiment die is a tried and true one from I believe and you have seen me use it many times before.

We hope to see you play along with both Use Your Stuff and Double Trouble for this challenge!

And here we are with another Tuesday upon us….this month and **gasp** dare I say it..summer, shall soon be passing…Just as our weather here in Calgary is getting good too…warm sunny days…you just want to bask in the sunshine….

However, as things do turn to fall soon, so does my project for the Tuesday Morning Sketchfor this week brought to us by Andrea!

Here you go!

I used the Stampin Up  Basket Full of Wishes stamp set to go with some papers from my miscellaneous box.  I used a postal die from Sizzix and the sentiment I pulled out of my little cup.

Be sure to stop by the blogso you can play along with us and see what the rest of the DT has created for you!

Ok…last one for awhile…I promise!

It’s Tuesday, so Tuesday Morning Sketches has a new one up and yep, it’s a fall one for my card but it’s going to be the last fall themed for awhile..I’m moving on!  Woohooo you say!

Here’s our sketch!

And here’s what I have for you!

Just some last little bits from the doodlebug collection and a sentiment from Scrapbook & Cards Today from one of my samplers.  I cut the leaves out using doodlebug vellum (which I love!) and my Sizzix Little Leaves die.

Head on over to the TMS blog and see what the rest of the DT has created…no doubt they have steered away from fall! LOL  Leave them some love and come play with us!  See you there!


Color Crazy#41

I’m not sure how my dates are getting mixed up folks, but I’m late with this posting! My apologies!

Our new anything goes challenge is ready to go at Colour Crazy and our sponsor this week is the awesome Ching-Chou Kuik.

Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Etsy Store


I’m highlighting a really cute digi called Toadstool HeadToadstool Head and this is a really versatile one.  It could be used for any occasion, as you will be able to tell when you head over to the blog and see the DT creations for you!

Myself, I chose to do an autumn card.  I colored her in autumn hues with my copics and then added a bit of wink of stella to her head wings and legs.  The DP is just from my stash and then I cut out a few leaves with a punch and tucked them in behind with a tag and some fun burlap for a bit of texture.

Head over to the blog, to check out the rest of the great DT inspiration and to play along with us!


C4G #204 – Autumn/Leaves

Fall is here, although if you are where I am it’s starting to look more like winter **shudder**.

Cardz4Guyz challenge is up!  Our theme this week is Autumn/Leaves, so an autumn card or one that shows leaves as your prominent focus!

I’ve pulled out my autumn box of scrappy goodness to play with over the next few weeks.  In it I found these cute little trees that I had cut out last year for a swap and had some left overs so I thought it would be perfect for this challenge!




I did it on my Cricut Explore Air from the Create a Critter 2 set.  Very cute set!  The DP is just from my stash, I received it in a swap last year so I thought it went perfectly with the tree.  I punched out a bunch of little leaves to go across the bottom and popped them with some pop dots.  The sentiment is a Jenn Hadfield for Pebbles sticker and then I added some Nuvo drops in red to finish it off.

I am excited to do some fall projects  over the next little while because I just love the colors!  Be sure to stop by the blog to see what the rest of the DT has created to inspire you and hope to see your creation in the link up!

Happy Thursday everyone!  I have a new card for you for Delightful Thursdays!   Make sure you head over to the Digital Delights blog to check out what the DT has for you today.  Delightful challenges is also having a Giving Thanks challenge this weeks so don’t forget to enter as well.

I used one of Wendy’s colored images for you this week.  It’s the Fall House image which I thought was really pretty.  I then paired it with the fall sentiments.





With the image I used some paper from Basic Grey.  I inked it with some Tim Holtz Ranger Ink in spiced marmalade.  I used a border punch as well as a Sizzix flourish die.  The sentiment is cut out with a Stampin up Punch.  I also added some ribbon and bling from my stash as well.  The big leaf is from Walmart.

I hope you like today’s card.
