Merry Christmas – A UYS sketch challenge

Sorry this is late everyone.  I’ve been pretty sick the last few days which prompted a trip to the ER over the weekend and I’ve not been able to get quite back into the thick of things.  Long story short, I’m having some severe headaches and I had some  numbness all down my left side so I’m scheduled for an MRI tomorrow.  Will keep you posted if anything serious.

So, a sketch challenge is up at Use Your Stuff this week.  And it’s a great one that could be used for both cards and layouts!  I chose to use it for my card this week.


Merry Christmas

Now I had a left over card kit, so I am not exactly sure who it is by.  I just loved that it all went together to put this card in motion.  The sentiment is a rub on from Memory Makers and the flowers are Prima.  I inked the chipboard snowflakes to match the colors in my card.  I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to head over to the blog to play along with us.

Merry Christmas

Yay for Tuesday!  It’s our new challenge at Use It Tuesday this week.  Our theme this week is All About Christmas/Hanukkah.  Create a project using some stash items with this theme and upload it to our blog!  We would love to see what you create.

Here is my card for you.  I got the idea from a Create magazine from last year I believe.  I loved the look of it and knew I wanted to try it.


I didn’t use any DP this time around, just some red, green and white cardstock.  The sentiment is from my stash…Hero Arts.  The tree was created using a Making Memories Twinkle bauble set from last year and some button and yarn from my stash.  A really simple card and I hope you like it.  Don’t forget to stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for you.

Christmas with a twist

That’s the theme for the challenge on Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.  A Christmas card with no red or green.  It’s actually not as hard as you would think and it makes a nice change from all the traditional color.  I used some light blue and cream cardstock from my stash as well as a sheet of christmas paper from a stack pack I picked up at Michael’s last year.  The images were stamped for me by my friend Lisa so I’m not sure which stamp set they are from.  I colored them with my Copics (E55, E35, B00), and inked the edges with Tim Holtz’s distress ink in Vintage Photo.  The snowflakes are from Making Memories Winter Blossom set and it’s a MM snowflake brad in the centre.  The ribbon is just some that I picked up at the dollar store.
