This is my 2nd card with sketch #1 from the August Card Sketch Challenge. I saw this sketch and thought it would be perfect for a friend of mine who just became a grandma for the first time. The colors on the card are the colors of the nursery. I wanted a fun happy card cause that is the type of grandma my friend will be. Now the card didn’t come out as cute as I pictured but she loved it so that is all that matters. And I finally used my Sew Easy that I have had forever!!

So for the next two weeks it is Anything Goes at Clearly iStamp! So get in your crafty space and create a card to share with us! Better yet see if you have any Clearly Digi Stamps you can pull out and play with.

I decided to make a card with Baby Blessings as a friend of mine is a grandma for the  first time! The small buttons from Lasting Impressions are perfect for this digital image.

grandmothers are born

I hadn’t made an easel card in a real long time so decided it was time to make one!

Circles everywhere!!


Today at For Fun Challenges we are challenging you have LOTS of circles on your project! Let’s see how many you can use. You can use paper with circles on it, embellishments in the shape of a circle or even scalloped circles. I have a total of 17 circles!!


1) For Fun Challenges – CIRCLES and lots of them!!

2) Stampin’ Sisters in Christ Create a card or project that uses both dark and light. Opposite colors; black/white, brown/ivory, deep blue/baby blue, red/pink etc.

I let the paper do the light and dark color combination. I hope that counts!

3) Day 8 at 365Cards – How do you feel about circles?  We want to see them all over your card. Specifically, let’s see a minimum of 10 circles. You can use circle punches, buttons, any round embellishments that pass as circles.

4) CAS-ual Fridays – CFC43: Clean And Simple creations with a Sentiment as the Focal Point. Hope this is CAS enough.

5) Daring Cardmakers – Challenge Tessellation –    create a card featuring a tessellating pattern. You can probably remember doing tessellation in math class at school right? Basically all you’re doing is making a pretty pattern with shapes that fit together perfectly on all sides, like tiling. It’s up to you how you interpret the dare so it could be a pattern on a paper already made or even a pattern you make yourself, have fun!

I hope the pattern of the quilt fits this. If not let me know and I will erase it from the challenge.


Cardstock/Papers: Cardstock – Bazzill (French Vanilla, other unknown Bazzill name), Patterned Paper – Jellibean Soup (Homemade 6 Bean Soup)

Accents/Tools: Cricut, Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge, floss, buttons, rick rack, 3/4″ EK Success circle punch
