Thanks a Bushel

I'm back with my second post today, sharing this card using the cutie Humphrey's Apples from Imagine That! My in-laws sent me a Starbucks gift card for my birthday (something I will use every day!!!) so I needed a thank you card to mail out to them. Kept it simple but with several layers of pattern paper that I've been know to hoard!!

Challenges I'm submitting my card to include:
Clear it Out - Anything goes (both theme and stash item)
Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Anything goes with a twist, make it cute
Craft Your Passion - Anything goes
Ooh La La Creations - Autumn

Happy Birthday to Ewe and Me!!

It's time to share the latest sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. Just like last week, and the week before that and so on and so on, this is one great sketch!!!  

And our wonderful sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps. Definitely one of my top 5 faves!!! 

Check out this image I got to play with, Birthday Ewe Trio. Are they not hilarious?!!! I had to make a birthday card is my birthday!!! I extend it for a week because I love getting spoiled!! I've been on a diet and doing pretty well (I've lost 14 pounds so far!!) so no birthday cake. Instead I want to go out for ice cream!! I won't over do it but I just want ice cream!! Now I want you to join us this week for some fun of your own at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

Howdy Friend

This is my third (yes I said 3rd) post for today. Be sure and scroll down to check 'em all out. The first day of the month means it's time for the Ants in my Pantry Digital Challenge over at the Doodle Pantry blog. I've had this Doodle Pantry image printed AND die cut for quite some time, so best put it to use now!! The image and sentiment is from the Mini Rooster set. If you can believe it, I did not use any digital paper on this one...there's a first for everything!! I did sponge two of my papers, something I don't do often enough. Be sure and join us at the Doodle Pantry blog for our monthly Ants in my Pantry Digital Challenge and your chance at some Doodle Pantry goodness.

Thanks a Bushel

Happy Holidays

It's time for a new challenge over at Holly Jolly Christmas. Over the next two weeks, we're looking for a Christmas card using a die. First, I used an image from one of our sponsors, A Day for Daisies, called Christmas Pixy One. My die cuts are Stitched Rectangles from Lil' Inker Designs and Blueprints 13 from My Favorite Things. I'm finding as I make more and more cards that I don't use a lot of embellishments...and that's okay by me. Mind you, I'll still buy 'em thinking one day I'll use 'em, but that day never seems to arrive!! Sure hope you can join us at Holly Jolly Christmas.

Just For You

Actually I should title this post "just in time!!" This sweet image from Gerda Steiner Designs is the stamp of the month (yes, I mean August!!) and is called Snoozing Dog and Mouse. I was in such a hurry to get my card done for the progressive challenge HERE that I ended up coloring both animals gray! So I kept with the grays, adding black and white, well, just because. Yes, the strips of pattern paper are from my scrap pile and the solid gray layer I stamped with a background stamp from My Favorite Stamps (Sweater Stitch Background). Now to submit my card for the monthly challenge with but a few hours to spare.

National Dog Day

We're celebrating National Dog Day for our CAS challenge over at The Outlawz. I love dogs, but my youngest is actually afraid of them so we ended up being cat owners instead. I get my dog fix when visiting my friends!! My card is super simple, but that's okay because I think I'll be sending it off to my college boy with a gift card inside...somewhere he can get something to eat for sure!! The image is from Bugaboo, Kidz Boy Puppy. Try and join us at The Outlawz for some doggy fun!!
