Inspired by Sesame Street


Did you know that on Nov 10, 1969 – Sesame Street Debuted?! So we are celebrating at For Fun Challenges.  Creat a project that is inspired by Sesame Street. It can be any type of project…scrapbook page, sewing project, cards, cupcakes, etc.

I didn’t have any sesame street product so I found the image on the internet and printed it off. I bought this number paper awhile back when it was on sale which is a good thing because it was perfect for the Count!! I decided this would make a cute Birthday Card for a 3 year old boy!!

Hope you will come play with us!

“The Lord bless you and keep you;

the Lord make his face shine upon you

and be gracious to you;

the Lord turn his face toward you

and give you peace.”

Numbers 6:24-26

I made this card for the Card Ministry at Church. We have been praying for a son of a member that has been having medical problems. This card was inspired by the October Muse, Julia Stainton, card on CASE Study Challenge #113.  The sketch for this card was inspired by Ladybugdesigns card – Grateful For You.


1) CASE Study Challenge #113 – Use the card for inspiration

2) Crafty Creations Challenge #192 – Get Well

I couldn’t resist playing with Austin’s new Autumn Digital Stamp. The scarecrow just had to be made into a card but then I decided to play in word and combine the food together. Well, then that just went so easily into the October Card Challenge – Sketch Category at I made that card too! I used Sketch: Seems A Little Sketchy #23 for the Scarecrow card.


Scarecrow Card Inside: I hope you don’t think I’ve baled on you… How ya been?

I then played with the pre-colored Patchpal Reindeer Digital Image

I used Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Sketch #87 for my inspiration.
