So Tuesday after my root canal I decided to clean up a pile on my craft room floor. In doing so I made this card. When trying to come up with ideals last month if I saw a sketch that sparked an ideal I set it aside with the product that I thought would work with it. This was one of those so I made it instead of putting the stuff away. The JOY was actually on a journaling card that came with the paper pack but the patterned paper it was on was not clicking for me. So I cut the JOY out and put it on solid paper and liked it a lot better. The sketch that inspired this card was Try Stampin’ on Tuesday #289.
I turned the sketch on it’s side.

December Card Class

I have already shown 2 cards we made in card class but here are the other 2 cards.

Joy to the World

This is a card I did for the card class I teach. I wanted an angel Christmas card so I asked my wonderful husband to draw me an angel and this is what he came up with! He designed it after our niece Kailee. I picked the colors and then made the card around the angel.

1) Dec Card Challenge – Favorites Category. I used Deconstructed Sketch #129 that I had saved in my favorites.


This is one of the cards that I designed for the card class I teach. I used a paper pack from Hobby Lobby for the Santa Image.
The design was inspired by a sketch and card that are very similar.
Dec Card Sketch Challenge – sketch #3
and a card I found on etsy that I saved in my favorites.

Today is Monthly Blog Hop for September at Clearly iStamp. The challenge this month was “ABC or 123”   It’s not a “back to school” theme literally. Instead, it’s more of a recipe – use items on your card that each start with an A, a B, and a C, OR use 1of something, two of something AND three of something. Of course I had to clarify and yes we were only allowed to use “ABC or 123” in order but you could have more stuff on there if you wanted. I wasn’t able to play the last few months because life has just  swamped me and I was trying to cut what I could to keep my sanity. Well, I had to play this month I was missing everyone. So here is my “A – Acorn, B- Brown, C – Circle” Card:

Of course this is not what I started out to make! I had planned on enlarge the acorns from the Autumn Critter Color Digital Stamp and making that the card but that just didn’t work out for me. So after fiddling with it this is what I ended up with! I love it! I love how challenges push you and expand your creativity. Trust me trying to fit the ABC or 123 into a card will stretch your creativity! I used the sketch provided on challenge – September Card Challenge.
