A Sweet Get Well

Welcome to the latest and greatest challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. As always we're so glad to have you join us.  

Our sponsor this week is Just Some Lines. What a fun shop, filled with so many sweet images! I recommend taking some time and browsing, you'll be glad that you did. 

Here's my card, using Little Em. So adorable!! Sure to make someone not feeling well smile. I'm thinking a friend of mine who's having surgery next week might like this one. We'd like for you to join us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and share your creation. Inspiration abounds!!

Warm Thoughts, Cold Twigs

I had a hard time last night staying focused on making this card with the Steeler game on!! Talk about exciting!!! I wanted to remind you about our challenge going on over at Holly Jolly Christmas...our theme is Snowman Fun. I used a Doodle Pantry image and sentiment from Quirky Snowmen. My sketch is from last week's Tuesday Morning Sketches - yes, I missed it again!!

I also wanted to let you know about a party going on at The Outlawz. Sign up and join us this week for challenges and prizes. My card I'm submitting for yesterday's Greetings challenge, used circles. I think my embossed layers and sequins will count as circles!

Other challenges I'm submitting my card to include:
Crafty Sentiments - Use a sentiment
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Extra - Anything Christmas
Christmas Card Challenges - Photo inspiration
Christmas Stampin' All Year - Anything goes
Merry Monday - Non-traditional colors

Snow One Like You

I put my Silhouette to use yesterday, cutting out lots of snowmen for the Gina K Designs set Snow One Like You. I then put them to use on a card for the Mix it up Monday challenge over at Stamp TV - water themed (snow was once water, right?!!!). I got this card done with only minutes to spare for the challenge!!! I used the sketch over at The House That Stamps Built as my building block. Other challenges I'm submitting my card to include:

Fashionable Stamping - Weather Forecast (it's looking snowy here!)
The Glory of Christmas - Snowman 
Allsorts - Embossing
Hiding in my Craft Room - Embossing

Bubble, Bubble, Toil and Trouble

That's the theme for our Clean & Simple challenge this week over at The Outlawz - a project that features something on it that you can cook or stir. I used the coffee cup die, sentiment and designer paper from the monthly stamp kit at Simon Says Stamp. I die cut the cup a second time out of red so I could switch out the heart in the middle. I initially then used my Wink of Stella pen on the heart but thought it just wasn't enough sparkle. So I pulled out the Stickles and wish I hadn't. It just overwhelms the red I think. Learn from your mistakes I always say...and don't over do the sparkle!!!!

St. Nick Birdie

Hard as I try, I can't seem to get my life organized!! I've come to the conclusion that it never will be so I might as well just go with it!! I've had this sweet Doodle Pantry image, St. Nick Birdie, not only printed off but die cut as well for quite some time!!! And I'm just now getting it onto a card! I used a Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge for the layout and some snowflake paper I found in my stash. Another Christmas card to add to my stack!

Challenges I'm submitting my card to include:
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - Use something forgotten or never used (image and dsp)
Little Claire's Designs - Christmas
Polkadoodles - Christmas Fun 
Deep Ocean Challenge - Christmas in October
Inky Chicks - Christmas
The Crafty Bloggers Network - Christmas

Our latest challenge over at The Fresh Brewed Blog for the next two weeks is the Pumpkin Patch. There are so many wonderful images to choose from at Fresh Brewed Designs with a pumpkin theme. I went with this cutie, Angel Cake Fall Wagon. I used Basic Grey papers (Grand Bazaar) from last month's Simon Says Stamp card kit. Such wonderful colors for a fall card.

This morning I went to our local stamp store and came out with a bag full of goodies. My die cutting machine is going to be busy!!! Can't wait to play.

A Sweet Boo to You!

Check it out, a new fun sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. Sketches are always the perfect tool for when you get "stuck" for a design. 

Our sponsor this week is Digi Stamp Boutique. So many adorable images to choose from, so go and take a look for yourself!

I actually went with the freebie from last month, Cute Ghost. Even the sentiment came with it! I had to flip my sketch a bit so I could use the sentiment to cover up a mark on my cardstock. Now it's your turn to WOW us with your creativity and inspiration at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.
